Have you ever wondered, “what makes functional healthcare different?” This question is both simple and complex. Outcomes, modalities, diagnostic tools…etc. all make functional health different, but maybe the simplest answer is… You make functional healthcare different. Clear? I know, not really. Give me a moment. We’ll get there.
Functional health providers, like Entavida, take a different approach to healthcare than conventional practitioners, leading to a more in-depth understanding of your health concerns. This is not a slight towards your PCP. It’s just that for some things, you need a different view, a different understanding, a better set of ears.
During your visit with a functional health practitioner, you can expect to have a conversation that delves deep into your personal and family history, the circumstances surrounding your first symptoms, and your experiences with other healthcare providers. We want to hear your story. This detailed history-taking, combined with a physical exam and laboratory testing, allows your practitioner to uncover the underlying causes of your health problems. Perhaps you have an undetected infection, or maybe it’s not “early dementia”, but post COVID. A shift in perspective and a bit more time can yield a whole new approach and solution.
NOT a one-size-fits-all
At first, investing the time and effort required may seem daunting, but many people find that it pays off in the long run. Working with a functional health provider can help you find answers to health problems that may have eluded other clinicians for years.
As you can see, functional healthcare is not a one-size-fits-all approach. Your Entavida practitioner will create a personalized plan that addresses your unique health concerns and goals. They will work collaboratively with you to develop a comprehensive treatment plan that may include lifestyle changes, nutritional supplementation, and targeted therapies.
Perhaps a deeper dive into your unique health-history today can lead to a happier, healthier future. At Entavida, we’d love to hear your story and help you gain a deeper understanding of your health and take steps to improve it.
