Functional Medicine & Nutrition
Chronic disease is a common issue for many Americans. Diabetes and heart disease are only two conditions that are often managed with pharmaceutical drugs. Although this is a typical route of treatment, many patients are less than satisfied with their outcomes. A number of individuals experience uncomfortable side effects from this approach without desired results. Many do not know that there are other options available that may work better for them.
Using functional medicine and a tailored nutritional program can aid in improved health and management of a range of chronic conditions. Patients may benefit from weight loss, increased energy and optimal health from following the programs prescribed by the functional medicine and nutritional experts at Leclair Wellness Center.

How Can Functional Medicine and Nutrition Help You?
The average medical doctor often suggests drugs or surgery to treat disease or dysfunction. Even with these medications, a patient may not be living the quality of life that they would want. More than 125 million Americans are affected by chronic disease. The standard model of training may not be helping to address and rectify underlying causes as doctors simply diagnose a condition and then follow a suggested protocol. If you are on medications or a regimen that fails to give you the results you need or makes you feel depressed or sluggish, it may be time to look into functional medicine.
Functional medicine practitioners look to understand the root causes of a condition and then use a holistic approach that often includes dietary changes. Patients may work with a team of practitioners, including a health coach or nutritionist, to achieve their wellness goals. Benefits may include:
- Improved digestion
- Increased energy
- Weight loss
- Better function
- Reduced inflammation
- Less discomfort
The program created is tailored to you and your specific needs. As such, response time and results may vary. Some patients may find that they can lower their dosage of certain medications after a period of following a regimen prescribed by the professionals at Leclair Wellness Center.
Chronic Conditions Can Be Treated with Functional Medicine
Many patients experience more vibrant health when they work with a functional medicine provider and a team of experts. Functional medicine and nutrition can be used to treat chronic conditions including:
- Neurological problems
- Metabolic issues
- Digestive concerns
One size does not fit all. Every patient is seen as unique on a biochemical and genetic level. A functional medicine practitioner treats the individual in an approach that supports the healing abilities of the body. The body has the capacity to self-regulate and repair itself. Providing the body fundamental building blocks that improve the health of the immune system and more can restore a state of balance.
