WHAT IS FUNCTIONAL AND INTEGRATIVE MEDICINE

Functional medicine is a health practice that is sometimes referred to as alternative or holistic medicine. The practitioners in this field primarily focus on the root cause of a symptom versus treating the symptom in its current state.

Integrative medicine, the newest of the 3 practices (medical, functional & integrative), considers your lifestyle habits. Treating the “whole” person (emotionally, psychologically and physically) to promote whole-life wellness.

WHY CHOOSE BODY REFINED FOR FUNCTIONAL AND INTEGRATIVE HEALTH COACHING

All too often, we visit the doctor for them to tell you that “all is well” or “you just need to exercise, and you need to eat better”. When you know very well something is not syncing and it can’t be that easy.

Kurt Dixon, the Health Coach for Body Refined, will spend time with you, taking the time to listen to your history, establishing a Lifestyle Schedule as a start, and looking at the interactions among your lifestyle factors (personal, work & environment) that can influence long-term wellness and prevent chronic disease.

The Body Refined Lifestyle Management program can help you identify, reduce or eliminate any problems by helping you to channel your efforts on the focus areas for better whole life management. The Lifestyle Management program encompasses the basic principles of functional and integrative medicine to improve the management and prevention of chronic diseases.

At Body Refined, Kurt will focus on the habits and your personal environment that is causing the ailment. As the functional and Integrative principles state, he can support the healing process by viewing your whole-life, the full 24-hour day, and how your habits interact dynamically with the environment. This process helps Kurt to identify potential genetic, lifestyle, and environmental factors that may impact your health from illness to wellness.

WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT

All client-patients will meet with Kurt for the Total Health Consultation. Prior to the consultation, you will be required to complete the Intake/Onboarding Questionnaire.

The questionnaire must be completed prior to your first communication with Kurt, the Pre-Screening Call. When scheduling your initial pre-screening call, you will be presented with the questionnaire. The questionnaire provides Kurt with a map of your lifestyle and health history to help give him some basic insight into your health and life history.

The pre-screening call lasts about 20-30 minutes while the Total health Consultation will last approximately two hours via video conference or in-person, which consists of a DEXA Total Body Composition Scan, Body Measurements, nutrition counseling, lifestyle review, laboratory testing review and health coaching. All of which will position Kurt to address all your concerns and he can provide recommendations as well as construct a Lifestyle Management plan.
