Functional medicine is one of the fastest growing fields of medicine.
Functional medicine practitioners know that most of our patients are by no means “normal”, but are actually a long way from being in a state of optimal health. In fact, our goal in the future would be to use functional medicine to simply maintain health, not have to constantly fix it. We put it all together to create your personalized VIN heath map here at NuYu.
BY DEFINITION, FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE IS MEDICAL PRACTICE OR TREATMENTS THAT FOCUS ON OPTIMAL FUNCTIONING OF THE BODY AND ITS ORGANS, USUALLY INVOLVING SYSTEMS OF HOLISTIC OR ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE.
Functional medicine is one of the fastest growing fields of medicine. In it’s simplest form, functional medicine provides real time testing to evaluate the body’s organ systems and uses whole food supplements, herbs, and a healthy eating plan to get the body’s innate healing mechanisms back on track. Here at NuYu, we also use the very best Essential Oils to help the body heal and maintain health which makes NuYu one of a kind.
As an example, your gut health is unique to you, and different than anyone else. Same goes for your immune system. Are you eating for your health based on your body? Are you supplementing the wrong things trying to stop symptoms versus fixing causes? Are you taking quality supplements, or trying to save money while your body excretes the junk you are saving money on, as it’s not usable? Testing let’s us know the answers to all of it. And then of course retesting as needed.
The best part is, no matter what you are going through you can always partake in functional medicine. While the functional medicine is used for healing, it is even more powerful when used for regular health maintenance.
Our motto is, “We don’t guess, we test”. Most medical doctors are limited to a few blood, saliva, and urine tests to help patients solve the puzzle of their health. That is far too narrow, as the body requires dozens, if not hundreds, of tests to understand how it all plays together. Of course, we know in the medical world the solution is medicine. Always more medicine. Here at NuYu, we believe food should be our medicine whenever the body is not in an extreme crisis requiring life saving treatments.
In fact, many times when clients have non symptomatic issues that are only detectable in the blood, saliva, and urine done by a trained functional medicine doctor. This means most people have pieces of their health NuYu puzzle they will never know about that could set them free. They fall through the huge cracks of modern medicine and never truly know the healing and life they could have as a large percentage of body functions are never tested and evaluated. So, to make things simple – don’t guess, test.
How do we put your puzzle together?
ultimate medical detective
Many patients fall through the cracks of the current medical paradigm because they are neither sick from a pathological perspective (no tissue changes, no findings on diagnostic testing etc.), nor 100% well. These patients fall into a gray area of medicine, causing us to attack with a different approach in order to deal with this.
Functional medicine is the way to deal with this, because functional medicine itself is all about becoming the ultimate medical detective for your specific needs.
