Functional Medicine: FAQs

Here are some frequently asked questions about Functional Medicine to help you better understand this holistic approach to healthcare.

 

Functional Medicine is an approach to healthcare that focuses on identifying and addressing the root causes of illness. It emphasizes personalized care, taking into account the unique genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors of each individual.

 

Functional Medicine differs from Conventional Medicine in several ways:

  • Root Cause Focus: Functional Medicine seeks to find and treat the underlying causes of health issues, not just the symptoms.
  • Personalized Care: Treatments are tailored to the individual, considering their unique genetic and biochemical makeup.
  • Holistic Approach: Functional Medicine views the body as an interconnected system and addresses multiple factors affecting health, including diet, lifestyle, and environment.

 

Functional Medicine can treat a wide range of conditions, including:

  • Chronic Diseases: Diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and neurodegenerative disorders.
  • Hormonal Imbalances: Thyroid issues, menopause, and low testosterone.
  • Autoimmune Disorders: Rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and multiple sclerosis.
  • Digestive Problems: IBS, Crohn's disease, and acid reflux.
  • Mental Health Issues: Depression, anxiety, and cognitive impairment.
  • Skin Conditions: Acne, eczema, and psoriasis.
  • Fatigue and Pain: Chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and chronic pain.
  • Obesity

 

Your first consultation typically lasts about 90 minutes. During this time, the practitioner will:

  • Review your medical history and current symptoms.
  • Conduct a thorough lifestyle assessment, including diet, exercise, sleep, and stress levels.
  • Discuss your family history and environmental exposures.
  • Develop a personalized health plan, which may include dietary changes, supplements, lifestyle modifications, and diagnostic testing.

 

Functional Medicine uses a variety of diagnostic tests to uncover hidden health issues. Common tests include:

  • Food allergy/sensitivity testing
  • Genetic testing

  • Heavy metal and mold toxicity testing
  • Vitamin and mineral deficiency assessments

  • Detoxification Programs: Strategies to eliminate toxins from the body.

Coverage for Functional Medicine varies by insurance provider and plan.

  2. Unresolved Health Issues: Individuals who have not found relief or satisfactory answers through conventional medicine. Functional medicine often involves a more in-depth investigation into health issues.

  3. Preventive Health: Those interested in preventive health measures and optimizing overall wellness. Functional medicine practitioners often focus on lifestyle changes, nutrition, and other preventive strategies.

  4. Personalized Care: People looking for personalized care that takes into account their unique genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors. Functional medicine tailors treatments to the individual rather than a one-size-fits-all approach.
