The goal of a Functional Medicine consultation is to discuss up to 3 main concerns a patient may have. Patients are asked to complete a survey detailing their historical and current medication, diet, supplementation, lifestyle, and other individual factors. This information is evaluated by the Functional Medicine Practitioner beforehand and the consultation will include discussion of the concerns with recommendations.
Hormone saliva testing is available for those with menopause and energy system concerns. Results are sent back to the pharmacy for the practitioner to assess and consider amongst other patient provided aspects. The practitioner can work with a current physician to provide recommendations or alterations to current prescriptions including hormones.
Discussion topics during a Functional Medicine consult are not limited and all conditions and body system symptoms are encouraged. Review of all prescriptions, supplements, diet and lifestyle factors are included in a Functional Medicine in order to optimize therapies and cure symptoms.
Those 5 years of age and older are eligible to book an appointment for a consultation.
