What You Need to Know About Functional Medicine

When it comes to treating patients with different health problems, there are several approaches that healthcare professionals may use to help their patients achieve optimal health. One of these medical approaches is functional medicine which focuses on finding the root cause of the patient’s chronic illness or complex disease.

A functional medicine practitioner investigates different factors that might cause a medical condition, including physical, emotional, mental, and even spiritual health. Things like diet and gut health, heredity, hormonal changes, medications, medical history, functional nutrition, and other lifestyle components are all looked into in order to determine the cause of the health problems and come up with comprehensive treatments for them.

At Grover Health & Wellness, we use the functional medicine approach as a science-based and integrative medical practice to help you manage your symptoms and find out the underlying cause of your chronic disease or overall health condition. Call us now to book your first appointment with us.

Benefits of Seeing a Functional Medicine Doctor

When your primary care physician refers you to a functional medicine doctor, you can expect different benefits that come with your treatment including:

  • Patient-centered Care and Treatment. Our healthcare professionals at Grover Health & Wellness always make sure to get to know each person deeply. More than your medical history, we also perform a lifestyle assessment to draw a complete picture of your health and identify the triggers so we can recommend the best treatment for you.
  • Multidisciplinary and Holistic Approach. The personalized medicine and treatment we prescribe for each patient often involve consulting multiple healthcare professionals for a more holistic approach. You can talk to one of our physicians, dietitians, psychologists, health coaches, and more.
  • Focus on Chronic and Complex Diseases. The functional medicine model is especially helpful for treating and managing chronic conditions like dementia, arthritis, asthma, autoimmune diseases, and more. These diseases often affect a lot of organ systems as well as the patient’s quality of life, so comprehensive treatments are more effective than conventional medicine.
  • Use of Alternative Medicine and Treatments. Although some functional medicine doctors recommend traditional medicine, you may also be prescribed alternative treatments like meditation, acupuncture, and other similar techniques to address specific symptoms.
  • Different Delivery Care Methods. Depending on the type of treatment plan for you, we can offer in-person consultations and virtual appointments. But regardless of your chosen delivery care method, we always make sure to give you our full attention to help you recover quickly.

Should You Visit a Functional Medicine Doctor?

Functional medicine doctors often see patients who are suffering from complex health issues. But even if you don’t have a chronic illness, you can still visit us to receive preventative care and restore your optimal health. Functional medicine is most effective if:

  • You’re willing to attend multiple and longer appointments. Patients need to spend more time with their functional medicine doctors than with their regular physicians. Doing this allows us to record a detailed history of your treatment and recovery process.
  • You’re willing to try new and alternative treatment methods. Aside from conventional medicine, our doctors may also recommend acupuncture, aromatherapy, meditation, yoga, and more for a well-rounded treatment.
  • Your chronic condition doesn’t respond well to traditional medicine. Some chronic conditions aren’t easily treated with traditional medicine because it only helps patients manage the symptoms as they appear. Functional medicine introduces a multi-faceted approach to help relieve most of the symptoms that affect your brain, body, and lifestyle.
  • You want a personalized experience for your treatment. Functional medicine is all about knowing the patient individually to determine the root cause of their condition. From there, we can figure out which specific treatments might work best for you.
