Functional wellness takes a holistic approach to healing. Instead of simply treating the symptoms, it seeks to treat the underlying cause of the symptoms to restore you to optimal health. This often uses an integrated approach that includes a multi-prong method of healing. At Rob +
Katie Truax in Santa Rosa Beach, we aim to restore your health through functional wellness.
How Does Functional Wellness Work?
Functional wellness is a team effort. A personalized treatment plan will be created focused on your health goals. Diagnosis and treatment will require your participation. To heal, you will need to take an active role in your own health and work with the practitioner. This is quite empowering, particularly if most of your healthcare has centered around sitting passively while a doctor examines you and writes a prescription.
The core of functional wellness is a wellness assessment. A traditional doctor may spend a few minutes listening to you describe your symptoms. However, functional wellness states that all of the body's systems are connected. So an understanding of your habits, lifestyle, stress level, previous health conditions, and current symptoms is essential for a proper diagnosis and treatment. Our wellness assessment begins with a computerized questionnaire. Afterward, you'll then have a detailed consultation with our doctor.
Diet is one of the key aspects of functional wellness, also known as functional nutrition. Traditional nutrition advice doesn't take into account your individuality. Have you ever tried a supplement or a diet that worked so well for someone else, only to find it didn't provide you with the same benefits? Your body has its own nutritional needs that will differ from those of others. When you know what your body needs to thrive, you can use diet to improve your health and regain vitality.
Functional wellness works very well as a telehealth service because much of it is about communication between you and the treatment provider. A wellness assessment can be conducted remotely and a treatment plan will be designed, without you ever having to leave your home. There are many reasons to consider telehealth. A busy schedule, living far away from the office, health concerns, or conditions that make leaving your home difficult.

The hormones in the human body respond to and interact with one another. Hormonal imbalance occurs when a gland secretes too much or too little hormone. For example, too little thyroid hormone can cause weight gain, fatigue, and dry skin.
One of the more common signs of hormonal imbalance in women occurs during perimenopause. As estrogen declines, the balance between estrogen and progesterone shifts, causing hot flashes, fatigue, vaginal dryness, weight gain, changes in sexual desire.
Calling us is the first step, and we can determine exactly what the imbalances are.
Adrenal Fatigue Treatment
Your adrenal glands are two nickel-sized glands, just above your kidneys. Adrenals produce and control cortisol, the stress hormone. Adrenal fatigue comes from chronic stress. When you push your body and mind too hard, your adrenals stop producing cortisol the way they should.
Signs of adrenal fatigue are low energy, trouble sleeping, weight gain, mood swings, depression, anxiety, brain fog, and autoimmune issues. Give us a call to get an assessment - them we can get you the proper treatment!
Diet and weight-loss books fill our nation's bookstores. Gluten-free diets. Paleo diets. Maybe you tried being a vegan, or a raw foodist. Most people we know have tried one or more of these. The new diet works for a while, then we can't take the deprivation any longer and break the diet. For some us, horrifyingly, all the weight we lost comes right back.
The very good news is that a real, long-lasting solution exists. The basics of this healthy approach to long-term weight loss are provided by our services. This solution is not a diet. It doesn't have a catchy name. It involves a change in many of your lifestyle choices. Curious? Give us a call.
