Funtional Medicine Nutrition

Functional Medicine Nutrition

“Functional medicine offers a powerful new operating system and clinical model for assessment, treatment, and prevention of chronic disease to replace the often outdated and ineffective acute-care models carried forward from the 20th century. Functional medicine enables physicians and other health professionals to practice proactive, predictive and personalized medicine which empowers patients to take an active role in their own health.” Institute of Functional Medicine

Functional medicine incorporates the latest in genetic science, systems biology, and understanding how environment and lifestyle factors influence the emergence and progression of disease. It places more responsibility back on and empowering each individual patient through educating the patient on his/her causes of illness which are within their control, and offer practical solutions through lifestyle, diet, nutrition and other means, to give each individual a chance to thrive and express life to its fullest potential.

As a Chiropractor, I treat the whole person and their uniqueness, not the disease. I have a passion for truly helping patients, and a desire for the TRUTH.

Common Conditions for Functional Medicine in general:

  • Depression/generalized fatigue
  • Thyroid Disorders
  • G.I.problems (from acid reflux, bloating, IBS to ulcerative colitis)
  • Athletic performance
  • Menopause
  • Neurological disorders (Parkinson’s, dementia)
  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • Adrenal Insufficiency/dysfunction
  • Autoimmune
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Chronic pain
  • Headaches/migraines
  • Anxiety
  • Diabetes/insulin resistance

To begin nutritional care we will need any current laboratory blood work you have had within the last 3 months. It is necessary to have this testing done prior to giving recommendations. Blood chemistry gives me the most important information-more than any other single diagnostic tool. “Normal Ranges” are interpreted differently in Functional Medicine so if you have been told you are “normal” but are still feeling badly, you are in the right place!

Depending on the nature of your condition, number of tests and follow-up visits will vary.

COST:

$282.00 Initial Blood Panel (3x the size of a typical panel) Bloodwork is NOT released until your initial consultation. Your insurance company will NOT pay for this test.

$150.00 Initial Consultation (typically 1 hour)

It has become my passion to help people who have not found answers elsewhere. This takes time and commitment. If you are ready, I look forward to beginning your journey of health with you!

Testimonials

  • "I had a problem with my hip and went to see Dr. Kathie Lunnon. She was very knowledgeable and explained all the things that could be going on. After six adjustments I started to notice a big difference when I was jogging. You are definitely in great hands with Dr. Lunnon."

  • "I started seeing Dr. Kathie after a car accident. I have worked with many chiropractors over the years and she is among the best. Her style is gentle but is so very effective. She is a wonderful resource for nutritional healing as well. I cannot recommend her enough! If you want a knowledgeable doctor that cares, give her a try."
