We believe in providing not only exceptional care but also holistic care. That is the primary focus of our functional medicine services. Functional medicine is all about patient-centered care and having an ongoing conversation about what will provide the best long-term outcomes. Additionally, this medical discipline takes into account biological factors that can potentially impact your health. This makes it the perfect choice for dealing with chronic, ongoing medical conditions. Patients seeking an active role in their health and treatment plan will thrive with this approach.
The functional medicine providers at Henry Community Health start by having an intensive conversation with a patient. They will discuss common topics such as your symptoms and current medications, but they will also want to know more about other environmental factors that may be impacting your health. This could include details about diet and lifestyle habits and also questions about emotional and environmental factors such as stress and trauma. This gives the provider the best opportunity possible to address every influence on your health.
Since every patient is different, every treatment plan will be tailored to that patient’s exact needs, but possible treatments may include:
- Therapeutic diet
- Botanical medicines
- Prescription medication
- Stress-management techniques
- Nutritional supplements
- Lifestyle counseling
- Exercise programs
Our providers work to develop a partnership with patients to devise an ongoing treatment plan. Adaptations, revisions, and adjustments will be made to appropriately align with goals and current patient progress.
