What is functional medicine?

Functional medicine restores your health by understanding how illness occurs. The focus of functional medicine shifts away from the traditional methods of treating individual symptoms and instead seeks to identify and treat the root cause of illness or chronic disease.

Using an individualized and patient-centered approach, Omobolanle can help pinpoint the cause of health conditions and assist you in finding proper treatments. 

One condition can be the result of many causes, and one cause may contribute to several of your underlying health conditions. For instance, excess weight may be the result of hormone imbalances, a lack of exercise, and a poor diet. 

To address all of the factors that contribute to your condition, you may need multiple or different treatments to successfully overcome any challenges that prevent you from achieving optimal health. 

What conditions can functional medicine treat?

There are a variety of chronic health conditions that functional medicine services can treat, including:

  • Diabetes
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Hormone balance
  • Digestive issues

Functional medicine may also benefit conditions like premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and other women’s health disorders.

The goal of your treatment plan is to treat all of the factors that contribute to your disease and help improve your quality of life.

What can I expect during a functional medicine consultation?

To optimize your health, Omobolanle works closely with you during your consultation to identify the underlying cause of your illness. She takes the time to understand your entire health history, your family history, and your symptoms.

She may also recommend testing to evaluate your genetic makeup and discuss your lifestyle habits, including your diet and exposure to environmental toxins.

Based on the data from your evaluation and testing, Omobolanle develops a personalized treatment plan to maximize your health. Throughout the process, you remain fully involved in your treatment and Omobolanle can address any questions you have during routine follow-up visits at NugaHealth Primary Care. 

If you need a specialist at any time during your treatment, she can refer you to an appropriate health care provider. 

To schedule a functional medicine consultation and find solutions to your chronic health issues, call NugaHealth Primary Care or book an appointment online today. Omobolanle is happy to address any questions and concerns you may have.
