What is Functional Medicine
Functional medicine is a personalized, systems-orientated model that empowers patients and practitioners to achieve the highest level of health by working together to address the underlying cause of complex illnesses. A functional medicine practitioner will consider various issues such as your physical, mental, and emotional health, taking in factors such as your genetics, diet, prescription medication, and medical history.
What should I expect from my Free Discovery Call?
During the free discovery call, we’ll determine whether partnering with our team is the best next step for you. We’ll go over any questions you may have about our approach, and how it differs from what you’ve tried before – so you feel comfortable about the journey ahead.
What should I expect from my Functional Wellness Evaluation?
Ahead of this paid appointment, which has been deeply discounted to enable everyone to easily benefit from a comprehensive evaluation, you will complete our online Discovery Forms so that we can properly review your history and goals. We will invest time reviewing these materials in advance of your appointment so they need to be submitted using our online portal for which you will receive links to complete. During your session, we will together review your completed intake forms, including medical history, current and past lab tests, medications or other interventions, and most importantly, focus on your goals for your health and wellness. Through a collaborative discussion with you and your significant other if applicable, we will develop a personalized roadmap and plan including all the fundamental pillars of health, diagnostics, resources and education that empowers you to begin your transformation on a path to long term, sustainable wellness. Our goal is for you to enjoy the freedom and independence of a vital, optimized life where you are getting healthier as you age!
What's the cost for the Functional Wellness Evaluation?
Before we even get to the evaluation, let’s do a FREE 15 min phone call to see if we are a good fit for each other! Then the next step is the Functional Wellness Evaluation, and that has been deeply discounted to just $87. You may add an evaluation for a spouse or household family member at the same time for an additional $47.
How does virtual health care support work?
You'll quickly see how personalized, flexible and effective this is! We've been supporting individuals and families around the world for decades - both in person and virtually. But once pivoting to fully virtual, the systems, tools and methods we developed to ensure people feel fully supported, satisfied and above all, achieve their goals, has been an amazingly effective model. We do use 1-on-1 video conferencing extensively, but we also have online digital programs, community groups, classes and more. You see, we are not a traditional "practitioner-vs.-patient" model. We don't examine you or need to be standing in front of you. Once we test, evaluate, and determine what root cause, underlying imbalances are at play in your body compromising your ability to thrive, the rest is more about educating and guiding you in a lifestyle that incorporates the necessary behaviors, and for some limited period, supplemental support - to set you on a path for long term, sustainable wellness. You will realize that making those corrections by addressing all the fundamental pillars of YOUR health takes place within you. You will also want to read the section on Lab Tests to understand the the wide majority of functional diagnostics we use are in the form of test kits from the laboratories that we send to you where you collect your own samples, whether saliva, stool, urine or other. On the occasion where blood is required that can be handled at local test sites or your physician.
