Wellness Q&A

What is functional wellness?
Functional wellness is comprehensive health care through a functional medicine lens. Functional medicine focuses on improving every aspect of your well-being so that all of your body’s systems work in harmony.

Traditional medical care involves treating problems as they occur, so it mainly treats symptoms. Functional medicine is a more proactive and preventive approach because it maximizes your health and corrects underlying problems before they can cause symptoms.

If you already have disease-related symptoms, functional medicine looks for the root cause of those symptoms and then addresses the issue where it started.

Functional wellness is also about improving your health, enhancing your vitality, and bringing you to peak wellness. It’s whole-person care to help you be your healthiest and happiest, with the longest life possible.

What are the advantages of functional wellness care?

Many people struggle with issues related to tiredness, weight gain, poor digestion, and other problems, especially as they age.

You might think those issues are the price of aging — but in fact, they’re usually a sign that your body’s systems are unhealthy or imbalanced. Functional wellness can bring you to optimal health at any age, including:

  • More energy
  • Better mood
  • Improved sleep
  • Better digestion
  • Less stress
  • Better immunity
  • Optimal hormone balance

With functional wellness care, you uncover the problems that are dragging you down so you can take the steps to feel like a whole new person.

How does functional wellness work?

Functional wellness starts with comprehensive blood testing. Blood tests analyze health factors such as:

  • Hormones
  • Inflammatory markers
  • Autoimmune markers
  • Blood sugar
  • Electrolyte levels
  • Kidney function
  • Liver function
  • Food allergies
  • Thyroid function
  • Adrenal function

In addition, many people who want to improve their wellness may need advanced functional medicine testing for a deep dive into the source of health problems. Stool, saliva, blood, and breath tests can evaluate specific things in great depth. For example, tests can evaluate and detect the source of:

  • Chronic fatigue
  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Chronic sinusitis
  • Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)
  • Lyme disease
  • Eczema and other skin disorders

After comprehensive lab tests and functional testing, your provider uses the scientific data from the tests to determine the best route to improving your health.

Treatment modifies the controllable factors through nutritional counseling, weight management, pharmaceutical-grade supplements, hormone therapy, and other approaches.

If you have specific issues — for example if you’re pregnant, need cancer support, or are looking for powerful anti-aging treatments — The Well-Nest can further tailor your wellness plan just for your goals.
