Getting Started

Having a doctor run lab tests for you is important to diagnose your health condition and determine if treatment is appropriate. A functional medicine physician will run a wide variety of tests to give you a clearer picture of what is going on in your body. They may include a lipid panel, cholesterol, white blood cell count, food allergy testing, hormone screening, or an inflammatory response test.

The Benefits of Functional Medicine for Chronic Illness and Disease Management

While there is no federal law requiring doctors to be part of an insurance network, functional medicine practitioners typically use a handful of labs that are considered out-of-network by insurance companies. Fortunately, many medical savings accounts (MSAs) offer coverage for functional medicine labs, so patients can pay their bills up front and submit claims later to receive full or partial reimbursement from their insurance company.

Why You Should Choose a Functional Medicine Specialist

A functional medicine practitioner is an expert in your specific health concerns and can treat them holistically. Unlike conventional medicine that masks health issues by treating symptoms, functional medicine addresses the root cause of your condition and restores it to its natural state through suitable natural remedies.
