Why Functional Medicine?
Health insurance is expensive and a lot of us are paying its high price. If you have insurance, you can still get frustrated from the limited care we get from traditional doctors. Although we get frustrated from the lack of care that we find in doctors, they, in return also get frustrated by the regulations and definitions imposed on them by the insurance industry. While we now have ways to prevent diseases from developing, this proactive care is not actually covered by any healthcare plan.
With the absence of the third party, functional medicine allows doctors to be able to serve their patients is a better manner. Here are some reason why you should go for functional medicine.
Functional medicine allows you to pay for your services as you choose them and when you choose to access them. Functional medicine does not work with isnuracne companies so you get to pay only for the care that you decide to take instead of paying monthly to an insurance company and be at their mercy to pay or not to pay when you have become sick.
In functional medicine, your doctor and his staff will spend time to get to know you better. Your doctor will spend more time with you. The time you spend with your doctor is unrushed and is very comfortable allow for conversations that are very helpful. They will begin to understand the symptoms of your illness during their conversations with you. And, together, you develop an appropriate course of preventive or diagnostic treatment.
Functional medicine includes preventive medicine. You and your doctor will develop a good nutrition plan which is a healthy one and some exercise programs that you can do. There is no hurry in consultation periods and this is the time when you can discuss with your doctor your health concerns, options, and treatment preferences.
You will be able to seek help from a traditional doctor if you get sick during the business day. However, many of us get sick outside of the business day. Functional medicine opens up the availability of doctors. Your personal doctor can provide you with the option of calling, emailing, or visiting him when you first feel sick.
If is quite unsettling to go into the hospital for treatment without the company of a regular doctor, and your care will be directed by unfamiliar staff, nurses, and doctors who bases this on notes and limited information. Functional medicine requires that the doctor is there to supervise your care and he also confers with other professionals regarding yor treatment plan and preferences.
Functional medicine offers you the chance to determine your healthcare and treatment methods through ongoing communication with your preferred doctor and without the interference and restriction of a third party. With functional medicine, you are given a new and brighter path different from typical health care.
