Helping You Overcome Your Health Issues
At Women’s Excellence Enhance, our goal is to identify the root cause of your symptoms through a functional medicine approach.
The traditional medical system is largely focused on acute care, like diagnosing and treating a specific illness or trauma with specific drugs or surgeries. This model works very well for problems like strep throat or even a broken arm. However, this approach is not designed to address the complex, chronic ailments that many women in our society face today.
What is Functional Medicine?
The practice of functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, especially chronic disease. Rather than attacking a set of symptoms, functional medicine takes an individual, patient-centered approach to treatment. Treatment addresses the whole person, not just the problem that is currently presenting itself. Learn more on functional medicine on our blog.
We Empower Our Patients to Advocate for Their Health
The progression of your disease or symptoms is often a direct result of a person’s environment, choices, and lifestyle. Functional medicine makes it possible to be proactive about your health. Since the underlying causes of your symptoms can be complex, there is no one size fits all approach when it comes to functional medicine. Every treatment is customized to every patient.
Your Initial Consultation
Be prepared to talk honestly and openly about eating habits, environment, exercise, nutrition, hormonal changes, family history, medical history, employment, relationships, and more. Our team wants a strong sense of your entire well-being, not just information about your physical symptoms, to help develop a unique treatment plan for you.
After an in depth discussion on your lifestyle and medical history, a physical exam and basic laboratory tests will be suggested to give our team a clear picture of what’s happening in your body. Genetic testing is also major component of functional medicine to determine if certain genes make patients more susceptible to certain health problems.
