Functional Medicine Approach

lp-ten-calendar-icon1

PATIENT- CENTERED CARE

Functional Medicine is designed to care for patients long after the disappearance of their disease. As the practitioner gets to know the patient at a personal level, the patient becomes involved in discovering the root cause of his or her health concern. Through this process, treatments are customized to fit the unique needs of the patient.

SCIENCE-BASED HEALTHCARE APPROACH

The way that a patient’s history, physiology, and lifestyle interact can be very complex. Functional Medicine studies these interactions and the manner in which they lead to illness. A patient’s genetic makeup is closely studied, as well as internal and external factors – such as their mind and body, and physical and social environments.

INTEGRATING BEST MEDICAL PRACTICES

Functional Medicine is a combination of traditional Western medicine, and what some consider alternative medicine. It uses the integration of the two practices to create a preventive environment by recommending proper nutrition, diet, and exercise. Results of state-of-the-art laboratory and diagnostic testing will be used to prescribe any necessary drugs and/or botanical medicines, supplements, diet therapy, tools for stress management, or detox programs.

Conciege Style Wellness

Concierge Style model is otherwise known as boutique medicine. It is a return to medicine that give patients the time and resources that strengthen the diagnosis, more personalized medicines but also reduces treatment failure.

The Concierge Style of care integration not only allows more time with the provider per visit, but patients gain increase access, more flexible clinic schedule. This pristine style of care also ensures wellness care plan in treatment protocols that are aligned with the care of other care providers. We that significantly reduce illness recurrence.

THE PROBLEM

Why we need R2Care clinic?

  • Society is seeing a dramatic increase in the number of people suffering from complex, chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer, mental illness, and autoimmune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis.
    Most physicians practice a style of medicine known as acute care, in which they diagnosis and treat trauma or illness that is either short-term or urgent care related, such as kidney stones or a broken arm. Physicians use specifically developed treatments such as drugs or surgery that are designed to treat the immediate problem or symptom.
  • But while the acute-care approach to medicine solves short term medical issues, it lacks the proper methods and tools used to prevent and treat complex, chronic diseases. It overlooks important factors that directly influence the cause of today’s chronic diseases – factors such as a patient’s genetic background or the effects of one’s environment. When it comes to the science of complex, chronic illness, there is an enormous gap between the way doctors’ practice and the emerging medical research – as long as 50 years! Therefore, don’t settle for practices that are not up to date.
  • THE START OF YOUR JOURNEY TOWARD BETTER HEALTH Our patients often see a significant improvement in their health by making a few simple changes. Sometimes we have to examine things a little deeper to see the big picture. Based on our discovery, our staff will provide a comprehensive plan through dietary changes or supplements to create a path toward optimal health.
  • We provide two main services that treat a range of issues. 1. In-person Functional Medicine Consultations to treat people with chronic health issues. 2. Remote Functional nutrition appointments for individuals who cannot travel to Needham, MA and would like to try diet and lifestyle modifications as a first step towards optimizing health.
