Functional Medicine

Personalized, Patient-Centered Care

Origins of Functional Medicine

The roots of functional medicine can be traced back to the reputable Sir William Osler, who was one of the first professors at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.

“Functional Medicine is a personalized, systems-oriented model that empowers patients and practitioners to achieve the highest expression of health by working in collaboration to address the underlying causes of disease.”

What Is Functional Medicine?

Functional medicine is a holistic healthcare process that creates a close partnership between you and the the medical provider. Both parties work together to determine the best treatment options to promote health and well-being of the patient. Functional medicine aims to treat the root cause of diseases and is found to be particularly helpful for chronic illnesses. The practitioner uses the latest laboratory testing techniques, targeted supplements and prevention methods including nutrition, lifestyle changes, exercise programs, yoga, detoxification and therapeutic diets for best results.

At Rose Wellness Center, we believe in restoring and maintaining good health by strengthening the body’s own healing power to prevent disease and overcome chronic illnesses. As part of the assessment, our physicians do an evaluation of the following:

Autoimmune Assessment

Autoimmune disorders occur when your immune system produces antibodies that attack your own tissues. We have worked with thousands of patients experiencing auto immune diseases such as hypothyroidism, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, ulcerative colitis, Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), etc. We help identify the cause of the inflammation and use a holistic approach for treatment along with specialized lab testing.

Gut / Microbiome Health

The gastrointestinal system is a complex set of organs responsible for  digestion, nutritional absorption and waste elimination. Our 5R program for  restoring digestive health is based on a functional medicine approach that treats you as a whole, not a set of symptoms. We get to the bottom of your GI  problems, whether it is toxicity, food intolerance, allergic reactions or chronic  infection. By eliminating the source of the problem, we can prevent GI issues  from worsening or developing into a more serious problem, such as an  autoimmune disease.

Hormone Balancing

Hormone levels are constantly fluctuating – a normal process that occurs at  every stage of life. When hormone levels are imbalanced, it is normal to feel  uncomfortable, sluggish, and just not quite yourself.

 

We focus on hormone  optimization, or bio-identical hormone therapy, which is the process of restoring  the hormonal balance in both women and men after they have  reached menopause and andropause, respectively.

Inflammation

Chronic pain and inflammation can become a debilitating condition that prevents one from enjoying even the simplest and most pleasant tasks. We try  to identify the root cause of pain and use a holistic approach that focusses on  your overall well-being as opposed to just addressing your pain symptoms.

Diet & Nutrition

There is a strong connection between the foods that you eat and your overall  health. and nutritional counseling as well as customized diet plans tailored to  your specific needs. Our board-certified holistic nutritionist can help you make  better lifestyle choices and guide you to create diet plans to eat healthier, loose  pounds naturally, take control of your stress, incorporate fitness into your  lifestyle, gain energy, and guide you to reach your long-term goals.

Our team of healthcare providers and wellness coordinators develops a close partnership with you that enables continuous communication and keeps everyone motivated to help you achieve your health goals.
