What is functional medicine?
Functional medicine is a branch of health care that focuses on identifying and treating the root of a disease, not just its symptoms. At Lexington Prescription Center, we know that managing a diagnosis goes beyond suppressing symptoms with medications. By looking at a patients' genetics, environment, diet, lifestyle, and medical history, we are able to develop new solutions for individuals who have previously received unsuccessful treatments.
What happens during a functional medicine consultation?
During a functional medicine consultation, you'll meet with our pharmacist Jeff Goldstein, Rph to do a deep dive into your health. We'll discuss your medical history, family history, current diet and exercise, medication regimen, and anything else that may be influencing your health. The goal is to find the root cause of your health concern so we can nip it in the bud, instead of prescribing medications to mask symptoms. After your consultation, we may recommend additional functional medicine testing to determine if there are other underlying factors that may be contributing to your health issue.
