At Naperville Integrated Wellness, we’re happy to be the top functional medicine facility for Wheaton residents. Many people who have had negative experiences in traditional medical settings come to visit our clinic here in Naperville, and it isn’t hard to understand why. While you may have gone to a general practitioner and left feeling more confused about what’s happening with your body, at our functional medicine clinic, our aim is to approach care in such a way that you can understand the source of your health concerns, and how to properly facilitate your body’s natural healing process.
Functional Medicine: A Different Approach
Functional medicine is the science of determining the source of chronic disease in order to prevent and treat it. There is no one-size-fits-all treatment under the functional medicine model; every patient is different, and therefore, their treatment will be different. Functional medicine shifts the focus from the symptoms of a specific disease to finding the root cause of the issues for each patient. Instead of writing a prescription so a patient can “manage” their symptoms, we help to implement genuinely impactful treatments to help the body begin its healing process naturally.

Functional Health Testing in Wheaton
The first step of using functional medicine to address your health concerns is testing. At Naperville Integrated Wellness, we are proud of our extensive battery of tests which can help our patients determine the root cause of the issue. This is an irreplaceable step to the functional medicine process because we depend on the body to tell us what is going on. The body is responsible for the healing process; your doctor will simply determine the best way to jumpstart this process. We offer a variety of tests, including:
- Food sensitivity testing
- Expanded functional medicine blood tests
- Stool analysis
- Saliva testing
- Hormone testing
- Neurotransmitter testing
- Nutrient levels testing
- Detoxification capacity testing

We can help with a wide variety of issues, from weight management to mental health to IBS treatment.
