Service Description

Functional medicine is patient-centered approach. Functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Functional medicine practitioners will look at root cause of diseases. For example patient may be diagnosed with under functioning thyroid. But this may be related to a chronic undiagnosed infection like infectious mononucleosis or patient may have nutritional deficiency like iron deficiency, zinc/ selenium deficiency, sugar imbalance or patient may be chronically stressed causing HPA axis dysfunction ( more commonly known as adrenal fatigue) and affecting thyroid as a secondary effect. Thyroid medicine may help some symptoms , but correcting these underlying problems can help manage the condition, may be able to reduce doses of medications/ reduce need for added medications down the road. Diagnosis of these underlying problems can be made based on detailed history and comprehensive testing including tests like micronutrient testing, hormone testing, testing for gut health, testing for chronic infections, genetic testing etc. Functional medicine approach is usually like solving a complex puzzle and the physician and patient work together as a team here to understand the root of patient's problems and form most effective and applicable long term health plan for them. This will usually include diet, lifestyle, supplements/ herbs. This approach can work with your current medications. This one time visit booking will include one physical follow up or video follow up to discuss any labs ordered and phone follow up for a month . Of course there is option of continuing care with me with monthly membership option . Please enquire about this during your session
