Functional Medicine Appointments
Functional Medicine is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms.
At LMMD, our physicians spend time with our patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. In this way, functional medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.
If you are visiting our clinic, you can expect an in-depth analysis of your health history, diet, exercise, sleep, genetics, stress levels, and your nutrient and hormone status. This wealth of information is examined through a systems-lens, which allows our physicans to begin addressing interrelated factors that are currently out of balance.
Individualised supplementation, nutrition consults, IV therapy, and mindfulness-based practices are all typically part of the initial stages of healing and can be accessed through our clinic when you are locally based.
If you would like to book with us but live outside of the Calgary, Alberta area, we also offer Telemedicine Appointments.
