What is functional medicine?
Functional medicine is an individualized, holistic approach that can help you achieve lasting relief from your chronic symptoms and improve overall health. As medical investigators, we focus on exposing the root cause of your symptoms and treating it, not just masking symptoms with a prescription. With our functional medicine program, you’ll have a whole care team to partner with you and help you reach your health goals.
A client-centered, real path to better health.
We take the time to really get to know you so we can identify and understand the various genetic, lifestyle, and environmental factors affecting your health. Next, we use the appropriate tools and techniques—including comprehensive, functional testing—combined with lifestyle changes, nutrition, and supplements as needed, to target the root cause of your illness and get you on a path to better health.
Supporting you every step of the way.
We partner with you to create a plan that really works—and support your journey to wellness. It’s important to understand that our proven, effective approach relies on slow and steady progress to achieve lasting, beneficial results. That’s why our program requires at least a 1-year commitment to invest in your health, as well as your active participation to implement your lifestyle changes with our guidance.
Lifestyle and the 5 principles of functional medicine.
One of the reasons functional medicine is so effective is its holistic approach to health and wellness. By encompassing the 5 principles of functional medicine—Nutrition, Stress, Sleep, Movement, and Relationships—we offer an effective, holistic program to address the root cause of your symptoms and support you on your journey to whole health.
Other important things to know about functional medicine.
While we focus on what functional medicine is and how it can help improve your health, it’s important to fully understand what functional medicine is NOT.
It's not covered by insurance.
While we would like to be able to accept health insurance, unfortunately it does not cover functional medicine. We accept cash or credit card, and payment plans are available. It’s an investment in your health and quality of life that’s worth far more than the cost of the program.
Whenever possible, we perform diagnostic testing so that it can be covered by insurance. Coverage varies depending on your plan.
It’s not a quick fix.
The truth is that functional medicine is effective, but it doesn’t work overnight. That’s why our program is structured over the course of a year. Because getting to know you, diagnosing your illness, developing a comprehensive treatment plan, and implementing your plan—it all takes time. And it requires your active participation as we guide you through the steps to wellness. With consistency and commitment, you’ll achieve real, lasting results.
