Functional and Regenerative Medicine
Thailand was the first and is still one of the only countries in the region to have hospitals that specialize in functional and regenerative medicine.
YOUR PATH TO HOLISTIC HEALTH AND beauty should start in Thailand, a leading light in the fields of functional and regenerative medicine. The former addresses the underlying causes of an illness, viewing the body as an integrated system and treating the whole system, not just the symptoms. Regenerative medicine, on the other hand, is the process of creating living, functional tissues to repair or replace tissue or organ function lost due to age and other factors.
Many Thai medical facilities combine the two, boosting the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Among them is Bangkok’s Better Being Hospital ( betterbeingthailand.com), which is designed as a fully integrated medical and lifestyle center. Doctors here have extensive experience working with patients with different concerns, and the cutting-edge facilities available allow for everything from laboratory testing to physical rehabilitation and other in-patient and outpatient programs. There’s also a focus on anti-aging for the whole body. Also in Bangkok, MALI Interdisciplinary
Hospital ( mali-imc.com) takes a holistic approach to wellness, its name coming from the fact that it offers patients access to interdisciplinary experts across various fields, making it easy to have preventative and remedial treatments in tandem. In addition to the hospital’s extensive regenerative program, MALI has facilities dedicated to optometry, aesthetics, and the management and prevention of chronic pain through physical therapy and traditional Chinese medicine.
One of Thailand’s leading hospitals for integrated wellbeing, TRIA Health – Beauty Institute ( tria
.co.th) combines conventional and alternative medicine with a team that includes doctors, nutritionists, chiropractors, acupuncturists, and other specialists across both Eastern and Western medicine. The goal, they say, is to optimize patient health and boost the body’s healing response.
Outside of Bangkok on Phuket’s Cape Panwa, seafront Amatara Wellness Resort ( amataraphuket

The property recently partnered with Bangkok Hospital Phuket’s Brain Health Institute to launch its Brain Health Enhancement Program, harnessing the philosophy of functional medicine to prevent memory loss and improve cognitive function. The goal is to give those who book the program the knowledge and tools to understand the lifestyle, sleep, and dietary practices that are most beneficial to preserve cognition and memory.
