Functional Medicine Treatment Plans

The treatment plan for patients seeking help with internal health conditions is tailored to your specific needs and goals, and varies significantly from patient to patient.  It is usually necessary to run laboratory tests to clarify the treatment plan best suited for each patient.
Dr. Caroline often provides advice on lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise at the first visit, and may even recommend some basic supplements to support you through the initial phase of treatment. Once laboratory results are obtained, recommendations can be tailored more specifically to your needs.
Patients are typically seen one to two times per month during the initial treatment phase.  Once symptoms are under control visits may be reduced to once every few weeks or months, depending on your needs and the conditions being treated.
It is important that laboratory tests be followed up on to ensure that you maintain the benefits found through treatment.
