Functional Medicine Q & A

What is functional medicine?

Functional medicine is a medical specialty focused on finding and treating the underlying cause of your illness or disease instead of just treating your symptoms. In addition to resolving your primary health concern, functional medicine also aims to improve your overall health and well-being.

Dr. Mann is a traditional medical doctor who received additional training from The Institute for Functional Medicine and is a certified functional medicine physician. She combines both aspects of her training to provide the most comprehensive care possible. 

Am I a good candidate for functional medicine?

Whether you’re looking for help managing your chronic illness or simply want a more holistic approach to health care, then you may be a good candidate for functional medicine. Dr. Mann manages general health and also treats specific health conditions and concerns, including:

  • Insomnia and fatigue
  • Allergies
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Migraines and headaches
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Diabetes, pre-diabetes and blood sugar control

She also uses functional medicine as a treatment for hair loss and facial rejuvenation.

What can I expect during a functional medicine evaluation?

Dr. Mann conducts a comprehensive examination when you come in for a functional medicine evaluation. She takes an evidence-based approach to health and wellness and conducts many diagnostic tests to understand your specific health needs. While the underlying cause of a health condition may be similar between people, the treatment needs to be individualized based on your specific genetic profile, lifestyle choices, and nutritional factors.

Some of the tests she may recommend during your functional medicine evaluation include:

  • Food sensitivity and allergy testing
  • Nutrient intake analysis
  • Body composition and fat analysis
  • Genomic and lifestyle risk assessment

Based on the information gathered during your evaluation, Dr. Mann creates a personalized treatment plan to help you on your road to wellness.
