Functional Medicine is a holistic systems biology-based approach used to identify and address the root cause of disease, rather than just treating the symptoms.
What does that mean?
It means that at our office, we look at you as a WHOLE and not just your symptoms. We want to get to the bottom of what is going on so that we can effectively address it (and hopefully fully resolve it!).
How does it work?
When you come in for a Functional Medicine evaluation (also known as a Nutritional eval), we take a deeper look at what is going on.
We will talk to you and perform a nutritional exam, as well as take a look at the results of your Systems Survey (a 212 comprehensive questionnaire), perform a wellness check of your heart with our HSR, and do muscle testing.
(Food allergy and food sensitivity testing is also offered at an additional cost.)
Once we are done with the evaluation, you will receive a report of our findings and we will go over a plan to address your issue.
What kind of plan?
Like the evaluation, your plan will also address you as a WHOLE. Expect to see a combination of the following:
- Diet changes
- Targeted supplementation
- Lifestyle changes
How long is the plan?
Every person’s plan is customized to THEIR needs, so it can be tough to say how long your plan is in advance.
What we all know about addressing issues is this:
Time x Intensity = Results
It is also why we are proud to offer Standard Process and MediHerb products since they are among the highest quality supplements and herbal products available.
