Partner Feature: Discover Five Seasons Functional Medicine
by Julie Schneiderman
There is a revolution happening in medicine today and many are learning about a model of care that address the root cause of your health problem referred to as Functional Medicine. Five Seasons refers to Functional Medicine as the medicine for the 21st Century, and there is good reason why!
21st Century Medicine
Due to modern stressors not known even 50 years ago, patients now face health issues that have not been well defined in classic medical literature and conventional medicine. Modern environmental stressors include environmental toxins, dietary excesses of sugars and carbohydrates, GMO’s, pharmaceuticals, daily stress issues, immunological challenges including viruses, parasites, bacteria, and more.
Five Seasons core philosophy is that the body’s systems work in concert, with every organ and system affecting the rest. Their team takes the position that most health problems will only be resolved if we can uncover and address these root causes.
In other words, their suggestions is that everyday health complaints can often be traced back to an imbalance in one of these functional key areas:
Blood sugar issues
Poor gut health & bacteria overgrowth
Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis
Most people don’t know that theses system-based health imbalances can be revealed in their very own blood test. Unfortunately, the current medical model assumes health unless markers fall outside the laboratory range. Five Seasons explains that there are tighter, more narrow ranges that are used to evaluate real health. When they consider these when looking at your blood test, they can identify systems-based problems long before the onset of a disease. Their practitioners explain that it takes years if not decades of declining health before the onset of a medical diagnosis. This is the opportunity!
Their case review consultation includes a comprehensive blood test, a consultation to review your functional imbalances, and an educational curriculum to support an understanding of your health plan. A systems based, functional analysis of your blood test not only saves you time and money, but can provide a direct path for you to improve the quality of you life.
They explains that it is always easier to address health issues upstream as opposed to downstream.They want this to be the last time you GET BACK on TRACK, and STAY on TRACK. Contact them for more information!
