What is Functional Medicine?

Functional medicine is an integrative approach that supports individuals holistically by identifying and addressing the root causes of disease. Unlike conventional medicine, which often targets symptoms, functional medicine strives to optimize your overall well-being by considering diet, genetics, hormonal changes, and emotional health. Our functional lab analysis employs optimal health and wellness ranges, enabling us to identify potential issues at the cellular level before they escalate.

  • Eating Patterns and Nutrition: Tailoring nutritional plans to address deficiencies, intolerances, and support overall health.

  • Nutrient Deficiencies: Identifying specific vitamin and mineral deficiencies that can affect everything from energy levels to immune function.
  • Hormonal Imbalances: Assessing levels of key hormones related to stress, metabolism, and reproductive health to identify imbalances that could be contributing to health issues.

    Functional Health Coach FAQs

    What happens before my first appointment? 

    One your intake appointment has been booked, you will receive a confirmation email or text letting you know next steps. You will be sent a Functional Health Questionnaire that needs to be completed and returned to Saving Face at least 72 hours before your Intake Appointment. This will give our team of providers enough time to review your information and help get to know you better. Your first appointment will involve a detailed discussion about your health history, lifestyle, and goals. You may also undergo comprehensive lab testing to provide insight into your health status. This information will be used to develop a personalized health plan.

    How will you make your recommendations?

    A Functional Health Coach takes a uniquely fact-based approach to your overall wellness, and analysis is the name of the game when it comes to making recommendations that will truly unlock your fullest health potential. We’ll analyze information like your hormone levels, your bloodwork, your diet, and more, so we can understand exactly why you’re feeling the way you feel and guide you to a sense of total wellness that sees you maximizing your overall quality of life.

    Can a Functional Health Coach help me lose weight?

    The short answer is yes…but a better answer is that your functional health coach can help you lose weight, and more! A functional health coach is here to help you reach all wellness goals that you might have. Whether this means finding a way to sleep better, losing weight ahead of beach season, or figuring out why you seem to feel congested all the time, your functional health coach will work closely with you to get to the root causes of your wellness frustrations and chart a course to comprehensive well-being.

    Is a Functional Health Coach the same as a dietitian or a nutritionist?

    Not exactly. Nutritionists and dieticians come from very specific training backgrounds, and their expertise tends to focus squarely on issues related to dietary intake and nutrition. Your Functional Health Coach, on the other hand, will consider these factors and more, approaching your overall sense of wellness from a much more comprehensive and holistic perspective.

    Do you take insurance? 

    We do not take insurance and require payment on the same day as your service. An invoice is provided once payment is completed that you could submit to your insurance for reimbursement if you desire. Another option is through Cherry, our patient financing vendor. Our staff can help you walk through the steps to see your qualifying amount. 

    How does functional health coaching differ from conventional medicine?

    Unlike conventional medicine, which often focuses on symptom management and acute care, functional health coaching aims to uncover the underlying causes of illness. It uses comprehensive lab analyses, lifestyle assessments, and personalized interventions to promote optimal health and prevent disease.

    What kind of lab tests are involved?

    Lab tests can include comprehensive blood panels, hormonal tests, nutrient deficiencies, food sensitivities, and more. These tests help identify imbalances or issues that could be contributing to your symptoms or health concerns.

    How can genetic testing benefit me?

    Genetic testing offers insights into your predisposition for certain health conditions and how your body may respond to different foods, supplements, and medications. This information allows for even more personalized health recommendations.

    What does a personalized health plan include?

    A personalized health plan may include dietary recommendations, supplement protocols, exercise suggestions, stress management techniques, and other lifestyle adjustments tailored to your specific needs and health goals.

    How long does it take to see results?

    The time to see results can vary depending on your individual health status and how closely you follow your personalized plan. Some patients notice improvements within a few weeks, while others may see more gradual changes over several months.

    Can functional health coaching help with chronic diseases?

    Yes, functional health coaching is designed to support individuals with a variety of health concerns, including chronic diseases. By addressing the root causes of these conditions, patients can often improve their symptoms and overall quality of life.

    How do I get started with functional health coaching?

    Getting started is easy! Simply contact our office to schedule your initial consultation. During this appointment, we'll discuss your health concerns, goals, and how functional health coaching can help you achieve optimal wellness.
