There is nothing more frustrating than feeling lousy and experiencing ongoing symptoms and being told:
“all of your tests are normal”
“we can’t find anything wrong with you”
At Attune Functional Medicine we specialize in treating complex and tricky cases.
We act as detectives and consider more than your test results to uncover the true cause of your symptoms (we also offer cutting-edge lab tests that other health care providers aren’t using).
In order to be able to ensure results, we operate a bit differently than a traditional medical doctor, and even other naturopathic practices in that our patients undergo a 6 or 12-month whole-health program, rather than offering one-off appointments.
Committing to a 6 or 12-month program ensures that no stone is left unturned, that you have the best chance of staying consistent with your treatment plan, and we are able to navigate changes and challenges as they arise.
We’ll begin with a comprehensive patient evaluation that includes a 2-hour introductory session where we explore your entire health and family history, your health concerns, what you’ve already been trying, and everything else that is relevant to where you are right now.
We also order a personalized set of lab tests so we can gather evidence of exactly what your body is trying to tell you. The most essential tests are included in your program fee, and if there is additional testing that we recommend based on your symptoms, we will discuss your options and you can decide how you would like to proceed.
At the end of this first visit, we will recommend the health program that will be most appropriate for you (6 or 12 months), based on the details of your case. You may select the program of your choice regardless of our recommendation, but please be aware that more complex cases and certain types of conditions often benefit from 12 months of consistent care.
During our introductory session we typically uncover symptom amplifiers that are linked to your diet and lifestyle that are easily changed and will help you begin feeling better right away.
You’ll leave the first session with an intermediary plan including simple changes to make in the meantime, as well as any natural remedies we recommend for fast relief and to help pave the way for healing while we wait for your lab results and personalized treatment plan.
Once we have your new lab results in hand and have thoroughly reviewed the information we’ve gathered so far, you’ll attend a 90-minute session where we will present our findings and provide you with your personalized Attune Treatment Plan.
Your Attune Treatment Plan may include nutritional, herbal, homeopathic, and/or lifestyle strategies, and while our recommendations are gentle, they are very effective. Your plan will be designed to facilitate your body’s own self-healing mechanisms. We may also provide referrals for other health care services that will complement and enhance your Attune Treatment Plan.
Our priority is that you feel confident and comfortable with your treatment plan, and we will tailor it to your lifestyle, short and long term goals, and even whether you’re a “slow changes over time” or a “lay it all on me” type of person.
We will meet once a month to reassess your symptoms, challenges, and treatment plan and make any necessary adjustments to ensure that you are consistently making progress toward your health goals.
During our time together we will also make recommendations for follow-up lab testing when appropriate so that we can monitor your progress, and identify long-term strategies that will help you to maintain the improvements you’ve made
We are also available by phone and secure messaging in between appointments for answering questions, troubleshooting challenges as they arise, and helping you navigate your treatment plan.
Strategically, when the factors that influence your health are in alignment, your body’s ability to self-heal is incredibly efficient and effective.
On a more personal level, when you feel good, you’ll be able to crush your goals, have fun with your family, and enjoy peace of mind.
By offering this program as a comprehensive package, we are able to offer you the highest level of support to ensure you will see a dramatic change in your health as you successfully integrate our recommendations.
We assess our patients on a much deeper level because we understand how to navigate even obscure medical specialties such as environmental medicine – in other words – how toxic exposures and specific types of infections can be the biggest drivers of your symptoms. This specialty among others is what makes us unique and able to diagnose and treat the most tricky cases.
Gaining expertise in these areas requires a lot of additional training, and if you happen to go to a place that doesn’t have a deep understanding of these concepts or know how to address them, then your results will probably be limited or short-lived.
Because we know what to look for and how to treat the problem head-on, coming to Attune will save you a lot of time and resources in the long run since you won’t be going in circles.
Our patients also find that when they really stop and consider how much they are paying for insurance deductibles and/or expensive co-pays, treatments and supplements that aren’t working, the cost of strained relationships, jumping from practitioner to practitioner or “piecemealing” different therapies, plus the time they are losing from work etc., this program pays for itself (and then some) very quickly.
How much are you missing out on right now because of low energy, feeling self-conscious, or being afraid of what going out and having fun is going to “cost” you in terms of discomfort?
