Functional Medicine Q&A

What is functional medicine?

Functional medicine uses a personalized, holistic, patient-centered approach to medical care and empowers you to have a voice in your treatment. You and Dr. Wick work together to find solutions that best suit your unique needs. Functional medicine finds the root cause of symptoms and diseases to restore your health as naturally as possible. 

What are the benefits of functional medicine?

Some of the numerous health and wellness benefits associated with functional medicine include:

  • A strong patient-physician relationship
  • Taking fewer medications
  • More energy
  • Fewer illnesses and chronic diseases
  • A better overall quality of life
  • More effective treatments
  • Patient-centered care
  • Naturopathic treatments

With functional medicine, Dr. Wick spends time getting to know you as a whole person, rather than simply treating disease symptoms. There’s no standard medical protocol with functional medicine, so she can tweak each treatment plan based on your personalized needs and preferences.

What should I expect during my appointment?

During your appointment at The Natural Choice Family Health Clinic, Dr. Wick and her team check your weight, blood pressure, pulse, and other vital signs. She reviews your medical history and symptoms, and she completes a physical examination. 

Dr. Wick might complete blood tests, a urine test, an electrocardiogram (ECG), or imaging procedures to detect or rule out medical problems such as:

  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Heart problems
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Other chronic diseases
  • Nutrient deficiencies
  • Hormone imbalances
  • Chronic pain or fatigue
  • An injury

She answers questions you may have about your health and discusses treatment options with you.

Will I require treatment?

Your personalized functional medicine treatment plan is based on your individualized needs. Dr. Wick might recommend:

  • Massage
  • Mesenchymal stem cell injections
  • Nutritional counseling, supplements, or medical weight loss
  • Bioidentical hormone therapy
  • IV nutrition therapy
  • IV chelation for detoxification
  • Ondamed pulsed electromagnetic field therapy
  • Exercise with oxygen therapy (EWOT)
  • Nambudripad Allergy Elimination Technique (NAET)
  • Ozone therapy 

These and other treatments can stimulate your body’s natural healing response and ability to eliminate toxins. Dr. Wick and her team take a naturopathic, preventive approach to medicine and offer natural treatments over medicines whenever possible.
