Functional Medicine Q & A

What is functional medicine?

Functional medicine is a branch of health care that focuses on diagnosing and treating the root cause of disease, instead of just the symptoms.

Many of the conditions that affect your physical and mental health occur as a result of underlying factors, such as high blood pressure and nutritional deficiencies.

By pinpointing and treating these underlying factors, the team at Align Healing Center can ease your symptoms and improve your overall quality of life.

What happens during a functional medicine consultation?

At your initial functional medicine consultation, your Align Healing Center provider performs a physical exam, reviews your medical history, and asks about your goals for treatment. Your doctor also asks you a series of questions regarding your:

  • Occupation
  • Family health
  • Exercise routine
  • Eating habits
  • Lifestyle choices

During your appointment, your provider also takes note of any prescription medications, supplements, or vitamins you’re taking.

Using this information, the team at Align Healing Center develops a custom treatment plan to improve your overall health and wellness. Treatment may include one service or a combination of services. Ultimately, the goal of functional medicine treatment is to help you feel better.

Are there different types of functional medicine?

The team at Align Healing Center offers a comprehensive suite of functional medicine services, including:

Bio-identical hormone balancing

To obtain your unique hormone profile, your Align Healing Center provider takes a saliva test. Your provider uses your profile to treat conditions such as PMS, menopause, and endometriosis.

Chiropractic care

Chiropractic care is a type of functional medicine that involves careful manipulation of your joints, vertebrae, and other musculoskeletal structures. If you’re suffering from chronic pain or the effects of a sports-related injury, chiropractic care may be able to help.

Nutritional IV therapy

Nutritional IV therapy delivers specific micronutrients directly to your bloodstream. Because IV therapy bypasses your digestive tract completely, your body absorbs more vitamins and minerals.

Nutritional deficiency testing

If you don’t get the right amount of vitamins and nutrients in the foods you eat, you’re also more likely to experience a nutritional deficiency. Left unmanaged, a nutritional deficiency can leave you feeling weak and irritable. It also increases your risk of more serious health problems.

Laser pain relief

The team at Align Healing Center has more than 15 years of experience performing cold laser therapy. Cold laser therapy uses therapeutic lasers to increase cellular energy in weakened or damaged cells. Over time, this eases pain, encourages healing, and promotes nerve function.

Nutritional blood analysis and heavy metal testing

If you’re thinking about trying a new vitamin or nutritional supplement, you may want to invest in nutritional blood analysis. This simple laboratory test provides key insights about the supplements you can most benefit from taking.
