Chicago Functional Medicine & Integrative Care at Aligned

by health and nutrition advice journalist

Thorough Clinical Assessment

Your Functional Medicine journey begins with a thorough clinical assessment and detailed health history with a Functional Medicine provider. With great care, our team will take our time – approximately one hour for your first visit – to discuss all of your current health concerns, perform a physical exam, and dive into the interactions between genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence your long-term health. Together, we will mutually agree on a plan that puts you in the driver’s seat of your treatment.

Lifestyle/Behavioral Change Roadmap

After your laboratory assessments are completed, our team will schedule a complete review of findings. During this time together, you will have a comprehensive discussion of your results and – more importantly – set a course of action to help you achieve both short-term and long-term goals. This may include meeting with our registered dietitians to address dietary changes, natural supplementation, and/or lifestyle changes. We may also recommend concurrent treatment with a specialist.
