What is Functional Medicine? 

Functional medicine gets its name because it focuses on restoring each organ and system to full function.

Functional medicine uses cutting-edge medical technology, detoxification, and lifestyle adjustments to help people treat complex conditions.

How Does Functional Medicine Work?

Your health analysis will begin with a functional medicine appointment. Your provider will take a detailed history and perform several types of testing to gain a complete picture of your current health. 

We will test for everything from food sensitivities to hormone levels. This testing allows us to develop a plan that targets your unique concerns and needs. Your Care Nashville team will follow your progress and help you make adjustments to maintain good health. 

How Can Functional Medicine Get to the Root Cause of My Symptoms?

Functional medicine professionals have extensive experience in managing complex or chronic health conditions. Standard medicine often struggles to get to the root of these health issues, and medications may only mask symptoms. Functional medicine providers focus on restoring healthy functioning. It can correct conditions including:

  • Thyroid imbalances
  • Adrenal hormone issues
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Allergies and sensitivities
  • Heavy metal exposure
  • Diabetes
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Autoimmune conditions
  • Chronic infections 

We recommend functional medicine for anyone seeking solutions to their complex health problems. Almost anyone can benefit from our person-focused standard of care.

Amazing, friendly, knowledgeable staff! Dr Senekal was very professional and had an amazing bedside manner. I would recommend him to anyone looking at getting cataract/laser surgery. I came from Grande Prairie just to see him and his staff!
