In conventional medicine, the question is WHAT - What disease is it? What pill or therapy are we going to implement? In Functional Medicine the question is, WHY? WHY do you have the symptoms that you do? In order to find out WHY, many questions need to be asked and answered.
What’s Involved in a Functional Medicine Evaluation?
At Core Health in St. Louis, we pride ourselves in spending time with and getting to know our patients. One of the biggest healthcare complaints is that the doctor doesn’t spend enough time with patients. Getting a thorough and complete health history and evaluation is critical when attempting to put together the puzzle of your health. We want to know your health goals and where you want to be. We want to know how you got where you are, and other specifics like: where and how were you born, your diet, stress levels, and other contributors you’ve probably never been asked in regards to your current health.
Every patient’s health is unique, so we treat you that way!
Taking the time to administer an extensive review of YOU, as a patient, is instrumental to unveiling the root of your chronic disease or health concerns. While patients may suffer from the same symptoms, or be diagnosed by a medical doctor with the same disease, the underlying issues that facilitated an environment for the disease to cultivate, are NOT always the same.Therefore, solely treating you based on the disease or condition you are suffering from, will not yield optimal health for you. Alternative healthcare practices focus on the individual. At Core Health in St. Louis, thorough analysis of you as an individual patient, allows us to implement the functional medicine treatments that will yield the best results for you, personally.
