MEDICINE
Functional Medicine at its core
How Does Functional Medicine Help Where Conventional Medicine Doesn’t
At its core, functional medicine is individualized medical care.

It is an approach to your health based on the fact that your body is one whole, integrated system.

Conventional medicine as currently practiced is based on an artificial division and compartmentalization of the body’s different organ systems. Thus, the primary approach to treatment is to suppress the symptoms of a disease.

To restore health, functional medicine begins by addressing the root causes of disease for each person. Functional medicine starts with a detailed understanding of your genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors. Science has taught us that a single condition can have many different causes and that one cause can lead to many different conditions.

Functional medicine seeks to understand why symptoms are occurring in the first place. To understand this, it approaches your health with a unique methodology for identifying and addressing underlying triggers.

Treatments aim at the causes of disease, not symptoms. Moreover, treatment may be quite different for two people with the same disease because no two people are the same.

 1
Environmental Exposures
We have to integrate individualized, patient-centered, science-based care with what we know about how the human body works. This allows us to address the causes of complex, chronic diseases, which are rooted in lifestyle choices, environmental exposures, and genetic influences.
2
Conventional Clinical
The conventional clinical model that we’re familiar with is not effective by itself in treating or preventing disease.
3
Practicing Medicine
One thing that is clear is that the interaction between our environments, our lifestyles, and our genetics is the primary driver of chronic disease. However, the model we have inherited is simply not built to address these interactions.

Practicing medicine in the 21st century requires innovative clinical models.

What is Functional Medicine?

Functional medicine is an approach to healthcare that focuses on identifying and addressing the root causes of disease. Unlike traditional medicine, which often treats symptoms without addressing underlying problems, functional medicine seeks to understand the body and identify imbalances contributing to illness. Functional medicine practitioners use various tools, including nutrition, lifestyle changes, and supplements, to help their patients achieve optimum health. The root cause is a term used in healthcare to refer to the underlying cause of a disease or condition. A root cause may be genetic, environmental, or lifestyle-related. Identifying and addressing root causes is a key component of functional medicine.

I’m not sick. Should I still schedule a consultation?

Prevention is the best medicine, especially when it comes to your health. Most people believe that illness occurs in the body when you get older; this is not true. By taking steps to prevent disease and injury today, you can stay healthy and avoid costly medical bills later on down the road. Unhealthy habits create chronic inflammation in the body, leading to later illness.

How do I schedule an appointment?

Dr. Truc offers a complimentary 15-minute phone consultation to answer any patient's questions or concerns regarding their health ailment and go over the services provided at Conscious Medicine. We look forward to connecting with you and scheduling a call today

Do you accept insurance?

We do not accept insurance. You can pay by credit card, debit card, HSA/FSA debit card, or care credit. You are welcome to submit the superbill for possible reimbursement from your insurance company. This document itemizes the services rendered and provides the insurance company with the information they need to process your claim. Many of our patients get up to 70% reimbursed.
We do not take any part in submitting claims or calling insurance companies, which is 100% the patient’s responsibility. We do not bill or participate in Medicare for any of our services.

Why don’t you accept insurance?

Unfortunately, insurance companies often dictate patients' care, limiting the effectiveness of treatments and time spent with our patients. Reimbursement rates are often too low to cover quality care costs. The administrative burden of dealing with insurance companies can be significant, which takes away from time that could be spent providing care to patients. We believe in providing the best possible care to our patients by spending as much time as necessary with each patient with personalized treatment plans to ensure their needs are met.

Are lab tests covered by insurance?

Lab tests are not covered by insurance. Many insurance plans, especially those provided by employers, only cover tests that are considered "medically necessary." You are welcome to check with your insurance supplier to see if they will reimburse you for out-of-network labs.
Lab tests are necessary because they can help diagnose many conditions, from uncomplicated infections to more severe diseases. They can also tell us how well your organs work and help us monitor your overall health.

Where can I get my lab testing done?

Our most commonly recommended lab test for stress management is a non-invasive test done in the comfort of your home with ease.

Some labs may require bloodwork which we offer at our Conscious Medicine office. If the distance is an issue for lab testing, we are happy to assist you in finding a facility closer to where you live. At Lab Corp, you can schedule an appointment directly with their facility.

*To follow CDC sanitation and safety protocols, we only accept one patient at a time in our office, wear proper PPE, and disinfect them.*

What if I live in another state? Can you still be my doctor?

Yes! All of our consultations are done virtually by phone or internet via Zoom Calls.
