Functional Medicine Consultations with Jackie Sitton, FNP-C
Functional medicine is a body-systems based approach that works to discover underlying causes of diseases and illness. With functional medicine, you aren’t simply putting a band-aid over a problem, but instead addressing the root cause of disease so that any efforts made to improve your health can have lasting benefits beyond simply suppressing symptoms of disease. Many people are experiencing life altering symptoms only to be told their traditional labs are normal with no explanation of why they are experiencing these symptoms.
Rather than prescribing a pill and calling it good, functional medicine works as “medical detective work” and we look at a combination of lifestyle factors such as diet, exercise, underlying conditions and genetics, including medical history and lab work to be able to pinpoint the root cause of many health conditions you may have. Jackie offers functional testing including food sensitivity tests, food allergy testing, mold testing options, saliva hormone and cortisol tests, GI effects stool test, SIBO breath tests, NutraEval, and more. These tests are not covered by insurance.
