Introduction: Understanding Functional Health

Not sure what functional medicine is or why people are changing to it and how it could help you? Start here to learn more!

We have done medical care the same way for a very long time. Treating the symptoms, not the cause, and creating an industry where facilities are overwhelmed, understaffed, and are only able to address immediate care. Functional medicine puts the patient at the forefront and focuses on utilizing simple approaches to health management that make a big difference. By adopting a holistic approach to your health, functional medicine helps to identify the root cause of your symptoms and develop personalized strategies to improve your health and wellness over the long term.

What is Functional Medicine?

Functional medicine is a biology-based approach that focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of medical concerns. It’s a comprehensive practice that prioritizes a patient-first approach. Through a thorough history and analysis of current symptoms, practitioners are able to identify the root cause of your illness, while also identifying triggers that would inflame your symptoms.

By isolating and understanding the causes, a personalized treatment plan can be created.

Why Functional Medicine?

Because it works.

It helps to provide relief in a sick care system that is broken and reactive. Symptoms are treated with medications that only result in more symptoms. It steps away from solely focusing on the immediate treatment and looks to understand the symptoms, leading to sustainable, practical changes.

Discover a sustainable approach to holistic health that doesn’t involve cycling through numerous care providers or being part of the rotating medical system. The sustainable systems that are put in place help to cascade wellness to every area of life. By approaching the symptoms with gradual lifestyle and habit changes, you’ll discover long-term relief.

Functional medicine, also called natural medicine, is customized to each patient due to its nature of care. Because practitioners are analyzing individual symptoms and putting them into the context of a single patient, the resulting care plan is tailored to that person. No more cookie-cutter care and one-size-fits-all diagnostics and treatment. Get care designed for you.

Who Do Nurse Health Coaches Help?

Nurse coaching services are designed to help anyone seeking relief from feeling so sick and tired all the time.

A Nurse Health Coach helps people with chronic symptoms of:

  • Inflammation
  • IBS
  • Bloating
  • Brain Fog
  • Anxiety
  • And more

How Would a Nurse Health Coach Help Me?

All functional medicine plans start with a holistic approach to wellness. Practitioners understand that multiple physical and emotional stressors contribute to symptoms and strive to understand how manageable lifestyle changes can lead to relief. By assessing factors like nutrition, sleep, stress, and physical activity, they are able to gauge how each can be adapted to improve your overall health and well-being.

To initiate a care plan, a Nurse Health Coach would:

  • Do an in-depth health history
  • Address your current health status
  • Identify the cause of undesirable symptoms
  • Develop goals and create an easy-to-follow action plan
  • Guide implementation and provide support and accountability

What Benefits Would I Experience?

At a minimum, working with a Nurse Health Coach would give you the answers that you’ve been looking for when it comes to your symptoms. Understand why you feel the way you do, and what you can do to alleviate it.

Addressing Chronic Health Problems

Discover relief from chronic health problems that have plagued you without relief. Discover a care provider that listens to your concerns without dismissing your symptoms or concerns. Personalized, sustainable care plans are designed to provide you with personally tailored approaches.

Improving Overall Health

Feel like your very best self with functional medicine. Discover relief by addressing:

  • The liver and detoxification
  • Gut health and digestion
  • Symptoms relating to anxiety and stress
  • A poor immune system
  • And more

By understanding how some of these common triggers relate to your personal symptoms, your nurse health care coach will create an actionable plan that will address specific symptoms while also improving your overall health.

Alternative Approaches

Nurse health coaches understand that popping a pill isn’t the solution to your problems. Their training provides them with the knowledge and training to provide alternative approaches to your health that will have you experiencing relief, not additional symptoms. Whether through changes to your diet, exercise routine, stress management, or other areas, they will help you find the best strategies for you.
