These days, we get a lot of cultural messages that suggest that we shouldn’t trust our bodies. Whether it’s a trendy new diet or a heavily marketed prescription drug, the media tells us that our bodies are a problem we need to fix. In reality, our bodies hold the true wisdom as to how to heal our health concerns, and the trick is not to try to control them — it’s to listen to them. This is the principle that functional medicine is founded on: we need to respect the body to promote its natural healing abilities. When Frankfort residents visit our functional medicine clinic, we work with the body, instead of fighting against it.

The Benefits of Functional Medicine

Nearly everyone in our country has, at one point or another, had a negative experience with a healthcare professional. It’s very common to feel like you’re not heard when you visit a traditional physician. They might meet with you for 10 minutes, write you a prescription, then push you out the door. While your problem didn’t fully go away, it might be easier to ignore with medication. When you visit our functional medicine facility, our focus is on treating your condition, not “managing” your symptoms. We make sure that we have plenty of time to talk to you about your health concerns, provide comprehensive testing to get an accurate picture of what’s going on in your body, and address it by promoting the natural healing processes innate in you.

Integrated Medicine Testing for Frankfort Residents

You are more than your symptoms. That’s why we prioritize functional medicine testing before anything else — because you are a complete person, and we need a complete understanding of what’s going on in your body. Your specific concerns will dictate exactly what we look for, but we offer a whole range of testing methods to help determine your needs, such as food sensitivity testing and hormone evaluations.
