Treating the Root Cause
If you haven’t heard of Functional Wellness before, it is because it has not existed in the realm of traditional medicine—until now. It is a revolutionary shift away from the disease treatment methodology to medical care that seeks wellness and balance. Its methods are rooted in the use of evidence based science and medical research that will deliver true disease prevention, healthier aging, and overall improvement in quality of life.
The goal is to achieve balance or homeostasis—a relatively stable equilibrium between interdependent elements within each patient. We have tried to make the application of functional wellness easy and understandable using the concept of balancing nutrition, hormones, stress, and exercise. We can bring real long-term health to patients when we consider how they are individually impacted by each of these four dynamic components. Using state of the art testing combined with detailed history and diagnostic techniques, each patient can understand where their optimal balance lies.
Our doctors provide programs that include diagnosis, testing, education, and pharmaceutical grade vitamin supplementation. They will apply an integrative approach that uses nutrition, vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals combined with optimal pharmacological therapy to minimize any already diagnosed illness and maximize health and fitness. Because the doctors at Women’s Specialty Healthcare are trained Ob/Gyns, they are highly qualified to address the hormone component.
For optimal balance, a partnership between the patient, doctor, and coordinator is needed. The nature of our practice is to evaluate your symptoms with state of the art lab testing and then formulate a comprehensive personalized treatment. Please remember that you will get out of this program what you put into it. You are ultimately responsible for your health. We are going to partner with you on this journey, and every patient’s progress is different and unique. It is critical to your success to keep all of your appointments and be committed to the recommended treatment plan.
