Sound familiar...?

  • You are told, “everything looks normal,” but you KNOW it’s not
  • Scared to go to the doctor, because you FEAR you won’t be HEARD
  • Tired of trying to figure it out on your own
  • By the time I start to feel comfortable, my 7 minutes are up, and the doctor has to leave

What is Functional Medicine? Could it help me?

  • Functional medicine is an approach to healthcare that focuses on identifying and addressing the root causes of disease and dysfunction.
  • We view the patient as a whole person instead of concentrating on a specific body system.
  • We take into account the unique genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that influence how organ systems function and how everything interacts to contribute to an individual's health or dysfunction.
  • We are less concerned with your diagnosis and more concerned with uncovering the WHY behind it.
An example:
  • Take the diagnosis of hypothyroid. In typical Western Medicine, when bloodwork shows there isn’t enough T4 hormone, a diagnosis of hypothyroid is made, and a medication to provide thyroid hormone is prescribed.
  • In functional medicine we ask, but WHY is this person not making enough thyroid hormone? There are more than 3 dozen things that could trigger hypothyroidism to manifest! These include bacterial infections, viral infections, insomnia, unhealthy relationships, loss (including death of a loved one or divorce), overtraining, chemical exposure, endocrine disruptors, and leaky gut with food sensitivities.
  • If we can uncover the cause(s), use natural methods to address them (or cope with them in a healthy way if they can’t be changed), and teach the patient ways to identify and address future flairs, we can help people feel better in the now, and empower them to make the best choices for their health in the future!

Functional medicine is for you if you are interested in:

  • Finding a healthcare provider that takes their time to learn about your situation and work with you to improve your quality of life.
  • Trying alternative treatments and lifestyle changes that do not center on prescription medication.
  • Benefiting from a customized experience that takes your whole situation into account instead of a particular set of symptoms.
  • Feeling like yourself again when you don’t have a diagnosis, but you know something just isn’t right.
  • Feeling like yourself again when you have a diagnosis, but you suspect if you could identify and treat the root causes of your condition, while continuing your current medical treatments, that you would reach an even better level of health.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Does Functional Medicine Work?

A: Yes! In functional medicine we follow a systems approach. The idea is that if we can improve the function of the different organ systems and help them communicate more effectively, the overall function of the body improves. When the systems function more efficiently, it doesn’t take as much energy to run the system, and people feel better! We have more energy for dreaming and doing instead of just coping. The field of functional medicine is founded in science, and it continues to grow and change as more research emerges.

Q: Do you accept my insurance?

A: Advanced Rehab and Medical does accept insurance, HOWEVER, the services that we use within the functional medicine department are deemed non-covered services. In order to effectively identify underlying root cause issues and obtain results we use advanced lab testing that is not typically used within conventional medical practices and is not covered by insurance. You can utilize FSA/HSA funds. Additionally, we can generate a detailed invoice that you can submit to your insurance company on your own, in an extra effort to petition coverage.

Q: Can you help me?

A: That is a great question! Since we are all unique, the best thing to do is schedule a Reclaim MY Life call and tell us a little bit about yourself and what you have been experiencing. It will give you the opportunity to meet us, and we can give you an idea of what to expect and let you know if we feel like it would be a good fit. What have you got to lose?
