What is Functional Medicine?

In a healthcare landscape where traditional approaches can leave patients feeling overlooked and frustrated, we offer you a different, more personalized path to better health. With functional medicine, we’ll guide you on your wellness journey, helping you reclaim your health and your life.

Restore Balance to Your Health

At its core, functional medicine is a holistic and patient-centered healthcare approach that targets the root cause of health issues to help you improve your overall wellness by preventing and reversing chronic disease. We believe that health isn’t as simple as treating symptoms. Everything in your body is interconnected, and health issues rarely exist in isolation. Our mission is to dive deeper to locate and eliminate the source of your health concerns. Our functional medicine approach examines your health in all areas, including genetic, lifestyle, and environmental factors. Overall, we offer a comprehensive view of your well-being to improve your health now and long term.

How Functional Medicine Differs from Traditional Medicine

While traditional medicine is good for a “quick fix” for acute illness, it far too often leaves patients feeling overlooked as if their health isn’t a priority. Patients often go unheard or are sent away with a prescription that doesn’t address the real issue or root cause. This lack of care leaves patients with numerous unanswered questions, vague diagnoses, and persistent health challenges, which can be extremely frustrating and tiring, especially if you struggle with chronic health issues. Through functional medicine, we can break through the cycle of ineffective care by getting to the root cause of your underlying health issues. By providing thorough and dedicated care, we will help you reclaim your health and your life.

Uncover and Address the Root Cause

Traditional care offers surface-level testing and manages symptoms without addressing the underlying problem. This means you may struggle with symptoms for years without ever treating the root cause. In our practice, we believe that true healing starts by identifying and treating the underlying cause of your health concerns. We use advanced testing and in-depth assessments to uncover imbalances, deficiencies, and other issues that may prevent you from reaching your health’s full potential. With these concerns as our guide, we can work with you to create a roadmap to better health.

Proactive Care

One of the core beliefs of functional medicine is that you should prioritize your health by taking steps to prevent disease before it starts. In traditional medicine, healthcare is reactive instead of proactive, providing surface-level basic testing that can give patients a false sense of security. Most people only see a doctor once they show symptoms, but we believe that health is an ongoing process. By improving your health over time, you can prevent health concerns before they arise. Our cutting-edge executive-level testing, genetic work-ups, and thorough assessments allow us to detect potential health issues early, giving you the power to stop disease in its tracks and live a healthier, happier, more productive, and longer life.

Personalized Treatment

Personalized Treatment

Your health is as unique as you are. We understand that a one–size–fits–all approach simply doesn’t work. That is why we dedicate our time to creating personalized solutions that address your specific health concerns and align with your lifestyle. Our care is centered entirely around you—your health, your time, and your needs. After all, who knows your health better than you? That is why we prioritize our time with you, so we can listen to your wants and needs and create a treatment that is entirely unique to you.

More Time With Your Doctor

One of the most significant drawbacks of traditional medicine is the limited time doctors spend with patients. This lack of time can lead to prolonged health issues and unnecessary stress, and may even result in missed diagnoses. At our practice, we take the time to truly listen and understand your health concerns, so you can feel and be heard. By increasing your time with your doctor, we can fully dive into your health history, genetics, and symptoms, ensuring that no stone is left unturned and that we have all the information we need to find you the answers you deserve.

A Natural Approach First

While medications have their place in healthcare, we prioritize sustainable, long–term solutions that extend beyond just managing your symptoms. Traditional medicine tends to overprescribe, which can lead to a reliance on medication. While we prescribe medications when needed, our focus is to help you create healthy habits by incorporating diet, exercise, lifestyle, and environmental changes that will benefit your health now and in the future. Dr. Myra’s patients tend to be on less medications and have much fewer hospitalizations.

With a holistic approach, we can help you identify and address the factors that are contributing to your health concerns. With some adjustments, we can help you toward a better overall quality of life without the excess of unnecessary or long–term medications.

Some of our methods include:

  • Nutritional Support
  • Exercise
  • Body Detoxification
  • Advanced Laboratory Testing
  • Therapeutic Diets
  • Natural Supplementation
  • Stress and Sleep Management
  • Reversal of Cognitive Decline

The Benefits of Concierge Care

At our practice, your health and happiness are our priority. That means we always strive to improve our practice to provide you with the efficient, effective, and comprehensive healthcare you deserve. Our approach combines the principles of functional medicine with the dedication and accessibility of concierge care.

Concierge care is a healthcare model that goes beyond the limitations of traditional medicine. It ensures around the clock access to your healthcare provider through telemedicine, virtual appointments, and phone consultations, even during emergencies. This approach provides enough time for in–depth discussions and thorough investigations of your health concerns. By extending the time and accessibility to your doctor, we transform your healthcare journey into a collaborative partnership between you and your doctor, so you can enjoy a better, healthier life.
