Functional medicine consultations are recommended for any patient looking to optimize or improve their health. Functional medicine treats all patients. Whether you have been diagnosed with a medical condition or are looking to prevent disease, we can help.
Conventional medicine often aims to manage symptoms with the use of medications. Functional medicine looks to address the cause of your symptoms and may use laboratory testing, nutritional interventions, lifestyle changes, and techniques to reduce the impacts of stress. Medications may also be used but are often able to be discontinued or reduced when following a functional treatment plan.
Functional Medicine also uses supplements as a tool to help manage symptoms, correct nutritional deficiencies, and to address the cause of your symptoms. Unfortunately, the regulation of supplements by the FDA is not strictly enforced. There are many companies that produce and sell fraudulent supplements that often do not contain what the label states. While you do not have to purchase supplements through Potter’s House Apothecary, it is encouraged. We only sell and recommend high quality professional pharmaceutical grade supplements. These pharmacist-selected brands go above and beyond the regulations of the FDA to test their products for purity and potency, so you can expect a higher-quality, safer and more effective product.
