An Alternative Medical Treatment Clinic
In simplest terms, think of it as personalized, one-on-one, therapeutic relationship. It’s a health-focused, patient-centric partnership, in which provider and patient work together to dig deep and find out the causes of illness and disease. We examine not only the patient, but also their unique history, environment, lifestyle and underlying factors, and then develop a health-enhancing, to help restore the patient to good health and get him or her on a life-long path of wellness.
A Systems Approach to Your Condition
Functional Medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic relationship. Central to the practice of Functional Medicine is an examination of the core clinical imbalances that underlie various disease conditions. Those imbalances arise as environmental inputs such as diet, nutrients, exercise, and trauma processed by body, mind, and spirit through a unique set of genetic predispositions, attitudes, and beliefs.
Functional Medicine is a patient-centered approach to healing. Instead of treating symptoms as isolated diseases, Functional Medicine looks a the big picture of health incorporating a patient’s genetics, diet, lifestyle and bio-chemical individuality.
Functional Medicine practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. Functional Medicine practitioners can give you the care and attention necessary to address your unique health challenges.
Multi-Dimensional Approach to Healing and Wellness
Functional Medicine blends the knowledge gained from science with the wisdom of ancient healing traditions. Conventional medicine (drugs and surgery) are recommended when appropriate, and complementary approaches, e.g. acupuncture, nutrition, supplements, herbs, bodywork, stress reduction, yoga and meditation different therapeutic techniques. The patient’s belief systems, attitudes, feelings, social relationships and environment are always taken into consideration. Patterns of eating, working, resting, sleeping and exercising are reviewed and always remembering the body’s ability to heal itself. And finally teaching patients to get healthy and inspire them to stay healthy.
Alzheimer’s Prevention – Mend Protocol
At Wholehearted Functional Medicine, we pride ourselves on bringing the best care and cutting-edge medicine to our patients. That is why we have partnered with Muses Labs to bring the MEND Protocol to our patients. The MEND Protocol is specially designed for patients with memory issues and those in the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease.
It is not just a one-drug solution; instead it gathers information about you, the individual, to create a combination therapy that is personalized to your needs. Protocol recommendations may include a combination of medications, supplements, and lifestyle changes.
Over 30 years of extensive scientific research shows that Alzheimer’s disease does not have a single cause, but by multiple causes over your lifetime, and the causes that are active vary from one patient to another. The MEND Protocol is able to help us pinpoint your specific causes of cognitive decline by using information from your: genome, blood tests, and medical history to identify your active underlying causes and address them simultaneously.
Each protocol is personalized to your specific needs and the biology of your body, from the recommendations, to the dosage amounts, by combining medical expertise with software algorithms. A highly personalized treatment plan is created for each patient to provide a deeper and more complete view of the underlying causes of your cognitive decline to help us correctly address them with you.
Each Protocol is also updated every 3 months. As you follow the Protocol, your biochemistry will change and your dosages, medications, and supplements may need to change with it. The MEND Protocol takes all of this into account in order to best serve your needs as an individual patient.
If you are experiencing memory issues or have a history of Alzheimer’s disease in your family, talk to or email Rebecca Zambito today at (360) 457-5139 or email@example.com to start making informed treatment decisions for your memory.
