Our Process

Functional medicine is a process that guides through a personalized wellness plan. When you work with the Restorative Medical Center, you’ll meet one-on-one with Christina Parker, Nurse practitioner, and the wellness team. We will get to know you and your unique situation. 

Whether you’re dealing with chronic fatigue or aiming to lose weight, we can help you reach your health goals. We begin with cellular health. When all cells are functioning well, it’s much easier to achieve lasting results. Every wellness plan is going to focus on hormones, nutrition, detoxification, mind and body. When all five areas are aligned, then the body can heal from almost anything.

Step 1: Initial Medical Consult

We begin every patient journey with an initial medical consult. This is not a quick 15-minute appointment where we check your vitals and breeze through your symptoms. Instead, we will take the time to discuss your history and goals. We will also discuss the Restorative Model we use and make a plan focused on your goals.

Many people love working with the Restorative Medical Center because we truly listen!

Step 2: Blood Work-Up

Functional medicine uses testing to see what’s going on under the surface. Using advanced lab work, we check the status of your nutrition, hormones, and toxins, as well as kidney, liver, cholesterol, and blood sugar function. 

Our team does not guess when it comes to your treatment plan. Instead, we use scientific data to pinpoint what’s going on with your health. Lab fees depend on the patient’s preferred lab. Let’s uncover the root cause of your symptoms.

Step 3: Follow-up and Dose Adjustments

It may take time to hone in on your ideal wellness plan. Every three to six months, we will review your progress and adjust doses of medications and/or treatment. Some issues can take a while to improve, and everyone is different. While you may notice your gut health improve within two weeks, your hormone balance may take longer to respond to treatment. 

Don’t worry, the Restorative Medical Center is here to support you every step of the way.

Access Powerful Supplements and Prescriptions

Our patients get exclusive access to approved third-party supplements and protocols. Sometimes, the body needs an extra boost to unlock its latent healing power. After your initial consultation, we will recommend the exact supplements your body needs. 

From Vitamin D3 to probiotics, liver detox pills to traditional pain relievers, we are proud to offer discounted medications through our online partners.

Why Can’t I Come in for a Single Appointment As I do with a Traditional Doctor’s Office?

Functional medicine distinguishes itself from traditional primary care by its emphasis on continuous care rather than one-off appointments. In the traditional model, patients often visit their primary care providers sporadically to address specific health issues. This type of care is reactive rather than proactive.

However, functional medicine practitioners adopt a proactive and holistic approach that considers how all the body’s systems work together. At the Restorative Medical Center, we aim to identify and address the root causes of health problems. By building long-term relationships with our patients, our functional medicine practitioners gain a deeper understanding of your medical history, lifestyle choices, and genetic context. This comprehensive knowledge allows us to develop personalized, evolving treatment plans that promote overall wellness and prevent future ailments. 

The focus on continuous care in functional medicine nurtures a collaborative partnership between the practitioner and the patient, fostering an empowering and sustainable path toward optimal health and well-being.

While we do offer targeted services like peptide therapy and EM Sculpt body sculpting, most of our clients see the best results from a full functional medicine program.
