Comprehensive Lab Work
In functional medicine we don’t prescribe nor advise our patients to take an extensive amount of supplements. You cannot fix every symptom with medication or supplement. Our systems are all connected. If one of the organs has low function and it’s shutting down, it puts a burden on all other organs and systems in the rest of the body.
The reason it is important for us to run comprehensive lab work is because you came to our office to help you find what other doctors, clinics, specialists might have missed. Comprehensive blood work is necessary because it allows us as practitioners to see where your body is losing the most energy and why.
It helps us create your specific care plan and target those areas to help you heal. It is not fair to you as a patient to know that your doctor looked at your blood work and told you everything looks good, but you feel far from good.
