Applications Of Functional Medicine

Our Functional Medicine services at Alive and Well in Austin have shown remarkable results across various health concerns.

Allergies

Many of our clients come seeking relief from chronic allergies. Our approach begins with identifying the root causes of these allergic reactions, often involving dietary triggers, environmental factors, and immune system imbalances. By implementing personalized dietary changes, environmental modifications, and targeted nutritional supplements, our functional medicine practitioners have helped clients significantly reduce or even eliminate their allergic symptoms. This brings immediate relief and contributes to long-term immune system health.

Brain and Mood Health

Mental well-being is deeply intertwined with physical health, a principle central to our Functional Medicine approach. For clients experiencing mood swings, anxiety, brain fog, depression, or other mental health challenges, we explore factors like gut health, nutrient deficiencies, and hormonal imbalances. Tailored nutritional strategies, lifestyle changes, and stress reduction techniques have been pivotal in enhancing our clients’ mental health. These interventions often lead to improved mood stability, clearer thinking, and a more positive overall outlook on life.

Weight Loss

Our weight loss approach transcends the traditional diet and exercise model. We understand that weight management is complex and influenced by metabolism, hormonal balance, and emotional well-being. By offering personalized nutrition plans, addressing hormonal imbalances, and guiding lifestyle changes, we have helped clients achieve and maintain their weight loss goals healthily and sustainably. More importantly, our clients often report increased energy levels and a better understanding of their body’s needs, leading to long-term health benefits beyond weight loss.

Testimonials From Our Satisfied Clients

FAQs

The duration to see results can vary depending on the individual’s condition and compliance with the treatment plan. Some clients notice improvements within a few weeks, while others may see gradual changes over several months. It’s a journey towards long-term health rather than a quick fix.

No referral is necessary. Clients can schedule an appointment directly with us, ensuring easy access to our Functional Medicine services.

Once you’ve booked your appointment, you will receive an email that confirms your appointment and reviews the next steps. Please access your Patient Portal and fill out all forms and medical questionnaires at least 48 hours (2 business days) prior to your appointment. Your providers review your information and prepare for your appointment ahead of time. Any medical records, specifically those within the last year, should be uploaded to your portal or faxed to our office at (737) 225-8927. Please make sure to include any medications or supplements you are currently taking and any allergies to medications.

Nutrition and lifestyle factors plays a key role in Functional Medicine. We often tailor dietary recommendations to each client’s specific needs, which can be crucial in managing and improving health conditions.

Absolutely. Functional Medicine excels in managing and improving chronic conditions like diabetes, heart disease, autoimmune disorders, and hormonal imbalances by addressing underlying causes and promoting lifestyle changes.

We do not accept insurance and require payment at the time of service. We can provide you with a super-bill to file for reimbursement with your insurance company if you choose to do so. Please call your insurance’s Customer Care line to see what out of network benefits you have. Some labs can be run through insurance, and I will work with you to prioritize testing–offering insurance options when available. Please note that some insurance companies do not reimburse Telehealth visits. In that case, an in-person visit should be scheduled.

We utilize various advanced testing methods, including thyroid tests, genetic profiling, hormonal tests, and gut microbiome analysis. These tests help us understand your unique health profile and tailor your treatment accordingly.

Functional Medicine is safe and beneficial for individuals of all ages, including children and seniors. Our treatments are personalized to suit each age group’s specific health requirements and considerations.
