Functional medicine, sometimes referred to as root-cause medicine, is a systems-based approach to identifying and treating the root cause of a disease.
For example, factors that lead to depression might include low thyroid hormone, nutrient deficiencies, stress, pre-diabetes, or certain medications. Causes of inflammation may be due to poor dietary habits, depression, stress, arthritis, diabetes, or heart disease.
The team at Total Health Solutions Medical Center addresses each of your symptoms and health conditions to determine the underlying cause and establish the most effective, least-invasive, holistic treatment.
When you arrive at Total Health Solutions Medical Center for a functional medicine appointment, your provider reviews your medical history and completes a physical exam. They talk with you in detail about your symptoms and answers all the questions you have.
If necessary, they recommend blood tests, imaging tests, or other screening tests to make a diagnosis and determine the root cause of an illness before discussing treatment options with you. Your provider makes sure you’re personally involved with all aspects of your treatment and care.
Your individualized treatment plan is based on your physical, mental, and emotional health. The team at Total Health Solutions Medical Center always recommends the least invasive, most natural treatment options first. They might suggest:
Total Health Solutions Medical Center understands the importance of maintaining a healthy diet to achieve optimal health and wellness. The team creates a custom diet just for you to ease symptoms and reduce disease risk factors.
To avoid the need for medications that may cause negative side effects, the team may recommend herbal, multivitamin, or other natural supplements to treat or prevent a health condition.
Stress reduction can do wonders for your health. The team at Total Health Solutions Medical Center might recommend massage, acupuncture, yoga, tai chi, meditation, or other stress-reduction strategies to improve overall health and wellness.
If you suffer from an injury or chronic pain, the team might recommend chiropractic care to ease pain, strengthen your muscles and joints, and enhance healing without addictive medication or invasive surgeries.
Anxiety disorders are the most common mental health illness in the United States, affecting more than 18% of the population. If anxiety, depression, or another mental health disorder negatively impacts your life, the team suggests holistic treatments, such as dietary supplements, talk therapy, or transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS).
Lifestyle changes can improve your overall health and prevent illness or disease. Examples include getting plenty of sleep, exercising regularly, not smoking, and reducing or eliminating alcohol.
