Functional medicine is an individualized systematic approach to find the root cause of disease based on scientific research. Our treatment is patient centered and not disease centered like conventional medicine. We use comprehensive exam, micro-environment testing to identify the imbalance you have and help set that right. Oftentimes, it may be recommended diets, lifestyle changes or supplements if needed.
We take pride in making you healthier without putting you on a lot of medications. We will also motivate you to be conscious of your health, so you can maintain a balance in your life. We believe in preventive care.
We use natural treatments which include focus on meditation, breathing exercises, diet or supplements.
Compared to most doctors, we take the extra time to personalise our treatments for you based on our detailed history taking, exam,and comprehensive testing, as we realize there is no one size that fits all. Our goal is to educate you and so we can work together as a team for the best possible outcomes.
For those of you that are healthy, we love to impart excellent preventive care so that you continue to improve your health both physically and mentally.
We have expanded our wellness to include wellness retreats, detox programs, health coaching we know that living in a fast zone has its own challenges and we hope to serve you better.
Detox : What is it and Why?
Do you know all the toxins in the environment and food you are exposed to? From plastics, aluminium, mercury, lead, glyphosates... the list is endless. These toxins have been implicated in hormonal imbalances, obesity, allergies, headaches, brain fog, depression, neurological illnesses like parkinson's, dementia and even cancer.
Our detox program have been researched for over several years and studies actually demonstrate reduced burden of toxins after a detox.
Detox is what you need to eliminate these fat soluble toxins. Under a scientifically proven method, these fat soluble toxins are converted to water soluble so you can pee them out. Under supervision, we recommend a personalized detox, after reviewing your medical history, labs, after a consultation to make sure that you are a right fit for our program. You will also need to bring all your medications including supplements and other relevant information. Your detox includes a diet plan and regular weekly follow ups. It is very essential to drink lots of water and eat according to our program during the days of your detox.
At the end of detox, you will feel much better, and also have some of your symptoms improve. Many experience weight loss (average 4-11 lbs) and better sleep, and clarity of mind with reduction in brain fog.
We do not bill insurance for these visits as insurance does not cover. This is a cash based practice. However, you can use your health savings / flex card. Currently, we are offering a 10 day or a 30 day detox program and includes 5-7 visits of 60-90 minutes. The cost of this program is $3200 for 14 day detox and $4200 for the 30 day detox includes supplements during this period. However, cost of labs are excluded.
New Promotion: $100 off our detox if you sign up as a new patient.
We also offer consultations. Our charges for a 60-90 minute is $ 450 per hour. This extensive time per visit is much needed. As you may know that functional medicine patients are more complex and have probably already seen several specialists and undergone several treatments. We aim to help you step by step on your road to improved health, both mental and physical.
We believe a good detox actually helps to clear out the "clutter" or imbalances and solve a lot of your problems, so that, later, it is easier to focus on your remaining problems with your functional medicine doctor. That way, your money and time and effort is saved. We do recommend detox every quarter or at least twice a year to maintain good health. It is especially recommended for you if you have chronic disease. It is very beneficial for you if you have MTHFR ( a genetic disorder that creates a problem with detoxification) and suffer from anxiety or depression and sleep problems.
People who cannot be in our program for detox include those on blood thinners, moderate to severe liver or kidney abnormalities or heart failure.
