How is Functional and Integrative Medicine Different?
Functional medicine determines how and why ill health occurs. We seek to address the real causes of dysfunction in an individual, not just treating a symptom.
We treat every patient as an individual. We don’t have cookie cutter programs. Each case is considered carefully and thoroughly. Optimal wellness and vitality are our intent for every patient.
We have helped thousands of patients achieve better health by uncovering and resolving hidden imbalances and deficiencies in their bodies. We will get to the true underlying causes of your health issues and help you to enjoy vibrant health again by using proven, evidence-based, leading-edge methods that work.
What to expect working with us.
We look forward to becoming your partner in evaluating and improving your health. Please take the time prior to your first visit to fill out all the forms included below.
Give yourself plenty of time to fill in everything as accurately and thoughtfully as possible. This may be the most important step in your health and recovery.
Knowing the history and underlying aspects of your case ensures a more accurate assessment and efficient treatment recommendations. It is often the smallest, most seemingly insignificant detail that turns out to be an important factor in how you got to where you are now.
It is extremely important to return all the forms completely filled out at least 2 weeks prior to your scheduled first visit so that Dr. Lundell will have time to review your case before you meet with him. Please send by email, regular mail or fax.
In your first visit Dr. Lundell will obtain a complete medical history and interview. The key to functional medicine is treating each person as an individual and getting to the root cause of health problems. That generally entails a detailed conversation about your current state of health, health history, family history, diet, lifestyle habits, etc.
At that point, Dr. Lundell will discuss with you potential approaches and recommended laboratory workups.
This visit will last approximately 60 minutes and is primarily an information gathering and sharing session, as well as a sort of two-way interview.
You are about to embark on a whole new health journey. Both you and Dr. Lundell will decide if a respectful, healing relationship is possible and if this is a good fit for success and growth.
Dr. Lundell may make some simple recommendations at this time, but most advice and treatments will be given after laboratory and physical exam results are obtained and there has been time to thoughtfully consider your case.
