What is functional medicine?

Functional medicine is a patient-centered, science-based approach that focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of disease. It examines the unique genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors influencing each patient’s health and tailors treatments accordingly, rather than solely managing symptoms.

How is functional medicine different from conventional medicine?

While conventional medicine often treats symptoms and diseases in isolation, functional medicine takes a holistic approach, focusing on the body as an interconnected system. Functional medicine practitioners spend more time with patients, delving into their histories and looking at interactions among genetic, lifestyle, and environmental factors that can influence chronic diseases.

What conditions can be treated with functional medicine?

Functional medicine can help manage a wide range of health issues, including chronic conditions like heart disease, diabetes, autoimmune disorders, and mental health issues. It can also be beneficial for individuals dealing with digestive disorders, hormonal imbalances, chronic fatigue, allergies, and many other health problems.

What can I expect during a functional medicine consultation?

During a functional medicine consultation, the practitioner will take a thorough history and may order comprehensive testing to gain a detailed understanding of your health. They will look at various aspects of your life, including nutrition, physical activity, stress, sleep habits, and more. Together, you’ll create a personalized treatment plan that focuses on diet, lifestyle changes, stress management, detoxification, nutritional supplements, and if necessary, medications.

Is functional medicine covered by insurance?

Inspirit operates on a self-pay basis, which means that payment is due at the time of service. Although we do not directly accept insurance, we can provide you with an itemized receipt which you may submit to your insurance provider for potential reimbursement, depending on the specifics of your plan. It’s always a good idea to contact your insurance provider to understand your coverage for out-of-network healthcare services before starting treatment.
