Here, Kyle Graber, RN/CLT/LE and Geri Jones, NP, discuss their popular Wellness Program:
Q: What is the Wellness Program and how does it work?
A: Cielo’s Wellness Program is founded on the principles of Functional Medicine, which is patient-centered medical healing at its best; where the focus is on you and your health. Functional Medicine is making big waves within the field of healthcare. Think of it as the ultimate therapeutic relationship, where we work together to dig deep and find out the root cause of your symptoms.
During an appointment, the exam is thorough and patient-centered, taking you, the whole person, into account and looking at your unique history, environment, lifestyle and any other underlying factors. The best news is that we do our best to get you on your life-long path to wellness without prescription drugs.
Q: So how is Functional Medicine different from today’s conventional Western medical system?
A: Conventional Medicine is disease-oriented and effectively separates patient care into specialized fields of medicine, whereas Functional Medicine looks at the whole picture, including lifestyle and unique biochemical factors, to identify the underlying causes of disease and to find treatments that promote health and vitality.
Traditionally, a medical doctor prescribes drugs as therapeutic tools to deal with dysfunction or disease, and uses as standard model of care for various conditions like low thyroid, diabetes, high blood pressure, etc. Referrals to specialists and medical bills begin to add up because care is geared toward expensive medical treatments or medications that suppress the symptoms but may not address the underlying cause of the problem.
A Functional Medicine provider uses a holistic view of the body’s biochemistry, focusing on prevention and health along with promoting lifestyle changes and treatments that address the root cause of the dysfunction. It’s a highly cost-effective option for patients, as it offers sustainable solutions from a vibrant field of scientific information, which challenges providers to think with an integrative approach, act consciously and prescribe less.
Q: Why is Functional Medicine so effective in treating the millions of Americans dealing with chronic disease?
A: Functional Medicine asks key questions such as “What is the root cause of the problem?” “Why is the function impaired?” and “What can we do to restore function back to balance?” Millions of Americans suffer from chronic conditions including allergy, digestion, hormonal, metabolic, auto-immune, psychological and neurological problems, and thankfully many are now finding effective solutions within the field of Functional Medicine.
It’s true and effective healthcare, and we’ve witnessed thousands of patients return to good health and vitality by putting the philosophies to use. By incorporating lifestyle changes, nutrition, supplements, stress reduction tools and other medicinal strategies, including bioidentical hormone replacement, we go beyond the current crisis care model by truly preventing and healing chronic diseases.
We believe the body is intelligent, can heal, and can prevent nearly all of the “age” related diseases. It is important for our patients to know that health is not just absence of disease, but a state of greater vitality.
