What It Includes
5 Functional Medicine Myths Debunked
I’ve tried “everything”
Many patients who work with us have been to multiple doctors, specialists, and even Naturopathic Doctors. For many getting the answers and care they deserve is a long road and it can feel like you’ve tried everything, but we guarantee you haven’t. Your body wants to heal, it just needs the right conditions and instructions.
When a person submits to the thought of having “tried everything” they subconsciously submit to the idea that nothing more can be done. Most people we speak to have never had a root cause approach to their case, functional lab testing, smart supplements, and a personalized plan that makes sure they are taking the right steps in the right order – all of which can be fundamental to the healing process. Chances are there are many aspects of your health that have not yet been fully explored.
I don’t have time
We are all allotted the same amount of time in a day, and that time passes whether you’re healthy or sick. Few things are more wasteful than time spent managing an illness or disease. Think of all the hours spent online researching your illness or sitting in a doctor’s waiting room for a 15-minute visit. When you don’t feel well, you’re also less productive at work and that can impact your finances – which leads to more time wasted spent worrying about your bottom line.
We believe that being healthy is one of the best ways to free up more time for you to do the things you enjoy the most with the people you love the most. In order to help you make the most of your time, we offer the option and convenience of video consultations to provide you with clear, concise directions on how to finally take control of your health and your life. The next 24 hours are going to pass regardless of what you do. Why not spend them pursuing better health?
I can figure this out on my own
We live in the era of information and the entirety of the world’s knowledge is available at your fingertips. Yet the most valuable information you need for healing is to know what’s going on inside your body and specifically the personalized plan that will work for you.
Our process is focused on your story, medical timeline, game-changing functional lab testing (for example the health of your cells and gut bacteria which we cannot know from your history and physical exam alone), thorough analysis of your case, and support to provide you with a deeper insight into your personal health challenges and how to overcome them.
Our goal is to partner with you to help identify the root cause of your health problems, teach you the life skills you need to remedy them, and support you in your transformation. Self-navigating through the sea of conflicting information ends up costing you both your health and your sanity, because general information may not be relevant to you and your case. We don’t recommend it.
If this worked, my doctor would know about it
Conventional medicine is designed for acute care, emergency interventions, and advanced disease states. The focus in conventional care is on the disease name and a one-size-fits-all pharmaceutical approach to manage symptoms. This is often necessary for acute care or emergency interventions to help you feel better in a traumatic or life-threatening situation. However this is an ineffective method for addressing chronic conditions which often worsen when the focus is managing symptoms instead of resolving causes and rebuilding health.
A personalized approach to chronic conditions and health optimization allows us to focus on the root causes of your health concerns and provide a plan designed specifically for you to remove your obstacles to healing, support optimum function of your body’s systems, and strengthen your health and resiliency. We also believe that there is a time and place for intelligent use of conventional methods, and will recommend them accordingly if we feel it’s necessary.
Functional medicine is expensive
This is the biggest misconception about functional medicine – primarily because we’ve been conditioned to expect insurance to pay for everything. In doing so, we have unwittingly ceded control of our wellness over to the lowest bidder – at the expense of our own health. In reality, functional medicine is the most affordable form of healthcare on the planet, especially when you consider that the average person spends more much money in their lifetime in the allopathic model managing a disease or illness without ever truly healing.
Thankfully, some forward-thinking insurance companies and governments are now running pilot-projects to demonstrate the significant cost savings to both patients and healthcare systems using a functional medicine model, while at the same time helping participants achieve increased positive health outcomes.
Sometimes the true cost of services being rendered isn’t just measured in dollars and cents, and just because something is covered by your insurance company does not make it cheaper. We’re proud of the fact that the average Thriving autoimmune patient saves thousands of dollars each year in medical expenses, while at the same time learning a liberating life skill that can be taught to their own children and loved ones. When choosing a healthcare provider, it’s important to look beyond the cost of something and instead consider it’s value. From the long term perspective, functional medicine wins every time.
Frequency Asked Questions
1. How do you determine if someone is right for the Essentials Program?
This program is for anyone who wants to optimize their health. If you are not motivated to take responsibility for your health by making significant diet and lifestyle changes as well as committing to a set protocol, than this program is not the right fit for you.
2. Can we work together remotely?
Yes! With the exception of a blood draw (if necessary) all lab test kits can be mailed to you and performed in the privacy of your own home, then mailed back to the lab along with your sample(s). Once we receive your results from the lab, we will email you a brief video interpretation of your results followed by a one hour appointment to go over them in greater detail. Appointments with any Bosnar Health team member can be done from the comfort of your own home or office via phone, Zoom, or Doxy.Me from virtually anywhere in the world.
3. Is lab testing necessary for the program?
Yes! Labs are a vital part of the process in uncovering hidden malfunctions, discovering healing opportunities, and getting to the root cause of your health issues. Without the data and information that labs provide us, we would just be guessing what’s wrong with you. We don’t guess…we test.
4. How much do lab fees cost?
We will determine which lab test(s) will be necessary during our initial appointment and will depend upon the information discussed at that time. On average, you can expect to spend between $500-$1500 for initial testing. In some cases, follow-up testing may be advisable to monitor things such as hormone balancing or the eradication of a gut pathogen. Regardless of how much you pay in lab fees, we’ve made every effort to ensure that you’re receiving direct-lab wholesale pricing on all lab tests.
5. Do you offer financing?
We currently do not offer financing but are happy to discuss payment options with any patient who is serious about our Essentials Program.
6. Do you offer a family discount?
Yes! We offer a $250 discount for each immediate family member (spouse and children under 18.)
7. How long does it take to heal?
There are many factors involved in determining how long it will take for an individual to heal, such as your level of participation and commitment, your individual health issues, and your current state of vitality. It’s important to understand that it’s not reasonable to expect to undo decades of damage in just a few weeks. We do not believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to healing, because we’re all unique individuals with different histories, abilities, lifestyles, and needs. This means the healing process will be as unique as you and we like to allow it to unfold naturally as your body permits. No matter how long it takes, our entire team is here to support you throughout your healing journey.
8. Can we continue working together when the program is over?
Yes! While we endeavor to provide you with everything you need to become liberated from the “symptom-management” system, many patients come to realize that a healthy mind, body, and spirit is priceless, and as such they find comfort and value in continuing with ongoing support from our team. Whether you choose to adopt a proactive approach to maintaining your health, or if you require additional support after your program is complete, we make it easy and affordable for you. Our goal is to provide the right amount of support to facilitate your goals.
