Functional Medicine

Caring for your health properly is so much more than just taking care of individual areas of your body. At Renew Lasting Lifestyle Changes, we prioritize a method of functional medicine that treats the unified system of your body, holistically.

The concept of “functional medicine” springs from the idea that medical care is an act of integration, not separation. Instead of simply addressing different symptoms across separate areas, functional medicine seeks to treat the root cause while looking at lifestyle factors including diet, environment, emotional health, and mindset that usually brings on the illness clients are seeking to heal.

The principles that characterize Functional Medicine care are as follows:

  • Medical practitioners prioritize quality over quantity with their clients. The practitioner will only make a medical diagnosis after listening carefully delving into a client’s medical hertory, looking at lifestyle factors that are oftentimes causing illness, then making a personalized assessment based on each client’s unique situation.
  • Assessment, natural healing, and prevention are prioritized over wait-and-see treatment approaches.
  • The most modern and advanced medical equipment that is available is used along with natural forms of healing like upgrading diet and using healing herbs or supplementation with few or no side effects.
  • Patients are taught how to take a more active role in their own health and will learn up-to-date nutrition science and lifestyle modifications that can boost their health and overall wellness for a lifetime.

Utilizing the functional medicine approach helps clients to finally heal and deal with the root cause of illness that they have been struggling with for years.

Instead of relying on being prescribed medications again and again for temporary relief, Doreen Skonier as a functional medicine health coach at Renew Lasting Lifestyle Changes partners with her patients in setting up short term goals to overcome problems holistically in order to find permanent changes to her clients’ lifestyle, by providing them with the proper tools and support to achieve positive outcomes.

Since the founding of her practice, she has helped clients heal from life-altering conditions such as fatigue, digestive issues, type 2 diabetes, migraines, and more.
