FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE CONSULTATIONS

Your journey to health begins with a full day of health, lifestyle and nutrition assessments at The UltraWellness Center.

The first appointment with a Functional Medicine physician must be done in-person at The UltraWellness Center in Lenox, Massachusetts. Follow-up appointments may take place in person or remotely via phone.

Gathering information

During a 40-minute pre-appointment with one of our nurses, we engage in a conversation to find out more about you, your health, and family history to build your in-depth health profile.

Exploring your health

During a 60-minute appointment, your physician will go over your medical history, your goals, ailments, prior lab testing, and nutrition. Together, the two of you will create a treatment plan.

Establishing your Baseline

Experience the convenience of in-house lab testing at our innovative Functional Medicine lab, where our lab team draws extensive blood panels, and helps with cutting edge testing. For tests that are done at home, our lab team will walk you through step-by-step instructions.

Creating a lifestyle plan

A 50-minute meeting with one of our in-house Functional Medicine Nutritionists is designed to support your individualized protocol and create a personalized nutrition plan focusing on high-quality, nutrient-dense foods to address imbalances and use food as medicine.

Setting you up for success

Your concluding session with the nurse provides for time to review your personalized plan, prioritize your protocol, discuss next steps on your journey, and establish a relationship for on-going support.

Functional Nutrition Consultations

Lifestyle change and changes in diet often work faster, better and more cheaply than medication and can be as effective without any side effects or long-term complications.

In addition, we discuss lifestyle factors which influence health such as exercise, stress, quality of sleep, relationships and relationship to food.

Developing a personalized plan

We work with you to come up with an Individualized Nutritional plan that emphasizes the importance of high quality foods and phytonutrient diversity. We suggest targeted
supplements based on medical history and test results.

Continuing the Journey

We will continually work with you to assess progress with your nutrition plan and make revisions as needed. We constantly reevaluate and adjust the plan based on new information goals and test results.
