A Comprehensive and Customized Approach
When you visit New Life Functional Neurology and Endocrinology, the functional medicine department at New Life Health, you may be surprised by how different it is from other health care experiences you’ve had in the past. We offer patients a comprehensive approach to care that achieves long-term, lasting results. If this all sounds too good to be true, it’s not!
Our approach is based on the principles of Functional Medicine. This means we look at the whole picture of your health and not just your symptoms. It also encourages a partnership between the practitioner and the patient in which we work together to not only improve your thyroid condition, but also your overall health.
We practice the healthcare of "Why?" Conventional medicine is very good at giving a name to a set of symptoms that is called a disease, but not so good at answering why these problems occur. Not answering why means it’s nearly impossible to get to how. How can we reverse your chronic illness? What can we do to make a world of difference in how you feel each day? How can you take control of your health?
We practice the type of medicine that connects the dots between all that is going wrong inside your body, down to a cellular level. It all begins with a proper diagnosis that is determined through a comprehensive evaluation and thorough lab testing. Most doctors conduct one test for thyroid problems, we conduct 10. This allows us to get to the bottom of why you have thyroid issues and symptoms in the first place and then we can address that why with a plan that is unique to you.
Every patient is different, and everyone comes with their own unique symptoms, triggers and responses to therapy. We understand this and that’s why we customize all of our care plans based on each patient’s individual needs and individual test results. A “one size fits all” approach to thyroid issues is typically not as successful as customized care.
