Functional Medicine 101
We are experiencing a sharp increase in chronic and lifestyle diseases, such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, gut disorders, mental illness, and autoimmune disorders like leaky gut and fibromyalgia.
Most doctors are locked into treatments such as drugs or surgery that aim to treat acute or immediate symptoms. While this works well for problems like a broken arm or appendicitis, it has proven very ineffective for chronic conditions over the last half century.
There’s a huge gap between emerging research and the way doctors practice. Functional medicine aims to evaluate, assess, and carefully enfold emerging research in a practical, efficient, and safe manner.
As a functional medicine practitioner, I focus on discovering the underlying causes of complex, chronic conditions. I then apply strategies such as nutrition, diet, and exercise to both treat and prevent these illnesses in my patients.
Working with Dr. Young
I always look forward to reviewing any case no matter what the health concern. Here’s an overview of our process:
Dr. Young will review your forms and decide if you are a qualified patient.
First Consultation – In depth meeting where Dr. Young comprehensively reviews your symptoms and health history. Usually 1 – 2 hours.
Testing – Dr. Young will recommend specific blood work, stool tests, allergy tests, etc to get to the root of your symptoms.
Report of Findings to discuss test results and to deliver your recommendations: lifestyle/diet changes, supplements, etc
Ongoing Support – Dr. Young is available to support you at regular intervals or as-needed.
