The following menu of services for children, adolescents and adults is not comprehensive but provides a brief description of common areas of concern. At any time you may contact our intake department for a brief telephone consultation to determine if our center is right for you.
Brain, Mind and Behavioral Health
Services are provided to those experiencing symptoms that can be as common as anxiety, sleep disturbance, loss of appetite or depression and as uncommon as a vague change in feeling well and change in behavior that is not common for that person. The services in Brain, Mind and Behavioral Health are diverse and will examine and evaluate in depth your health issues and complaints that may affect how your brain is functioning and therefore your mental status. Behavioral changes, such as lack of motivation or change in personality are common when health issues are affecting brain functioning. Treatments are tailored based on results of the evaluation and lab studies.
Mind and Body Balance
The Mind Body Balance services are designed for those with chronic illness or undiagnosed chronic symptoms that are affecting their mental health. Common chronic diseases such as diabetes will affect mental health from metabolic changes as well as subjective experience of having a disease that requires substantial changes in lifestyle and or diet. There may be difficulties with adjusting to prescribed healthcare regimens in any disease category that our specially trained health coaches can help you overcome. These changes can be difficult to sustain whether from a common chronic disease or from other health issues that impact your mental state. FxMed Centers will provide you with recommendations to help remit chronic disease by restoring the best state of health your body can achieve while coaching you through the lifestyle changes.
Stress and Anxiety
Chronic stress is a killer. Learning to manage stress and alleviate unnecessary causes to stress such as perception or lack of confidence is a primary focus to seeking improved health. Chronic stress can lead to heart conditions, hypertension and other diseases that can be easily prevented with good stress management and reduction in anxiety. At FxMed Centers we are staffed with specialists who can assist you with anxiety. We do not rely on addictive prescriptive medications to remit anxiety but use a proven method of combined, integrative and functional medicine interventions.
Regular and satisfying sleep is one of the most important contributions to good health. Chronic sleep disturbance can lead to serious mood disorders and is linked to other health conditions such as obesity or hormonal imbalances. Achieving a consistent and natural sleep is a primary focus to good mental and physical health.
Low Energy or Fatigue
Chronic fatigue is a common problem. There is a long list of potential causes to chronic fatigue that can include viral infections, low nutrient status, hormonal imbalances, depression to name only a few. An in-depth evaluation is conducted to seek the cause. A personal careplan is provided to restore natural energy and vitality.
Are you experiencing rapid changes in mood or a dull or low mood? If you lack motivation and drive for life you may have depression. Depression has many causes which can have its roots in a physical cause. Not everyone who is depressed has a negative outlook on life. Sometimes you don’t feel well and you lack energy and drive but you know this is not “you”. Or, you may have anxiety and/or a persistent worried state of mind. An evaluation for underlying biological causes will be conducted including a complete psychosocial history to find both internal and external causes to your mood. A personal careplan is designed to restore a stable and happy mood.
Unremitting Mood Disorders
Genetic testing is available to those who have been receiving treatment without a positive outcome. The results can detail your potential responses to various medications or provide you with important information about a biological origin that has yet to be found. The information obtained in this specialty testing can be invaluable to those who are being treated for years without remission.
WEIGHT LOSS AND HEALTHY EATING
Obesity is a common problem in our culture and this requires an evaluation of health status and a focus on making significant changes in lifestyle. FxMedCenter provides a team of behavior change specialists to assist with achieving the goals that are necessary to achieve a permanent change in behavior with food, exercise, stress and lifestyle. Daily coaching is provided until healthy eating patterns become routine and weight loss is steady.
Eating disorders are common in women but recently numbers are escalating for men as well. All types of eating disorders are treated and a sound nutritional and healthy lifestyle are provided to offset the nutritional deficits caused by eating disorders. Daily coaching is provided as necessary until healthy eating patterns are routine.
We provide guidance and support through a detox period to help you get started on the next step towards true health. Toxins are common in our environment and food supply. Labs are done to identify the toxins. Education is provided to help prevent and limit exposure to toxins. By eliminating toxins you may also find that your mental health and physical status and vitality have greatly improved.
Clients are evaluated for their particular nutritional needs. Not everyone should be on the same diet. Food sensitivities are evaluated. Genetics will play a role in the optimal diet for you. These aspects of your life and body are important components in the design of an optimal nutrition plan for your specific metabolic needs.
Clients who want to know their health risks are provided with labs and in depth evaluation of their history and family history to determine what their needs are to prevent the diseases for which they are at risk. The best method for protecting your longevity is to know your body’s health status based on your specific genetics, environmental influences, metabolic status and family history. The best time to start is now and not to wait until you have symptoms or don’t feel well. Prevention is meant to start before you have symptoms.
Clients may feel that they are not sick but not feel their best. An evaluation is conducted to determine what may be an underlying cause. At times, the feeling of not being well is diagnosed as depression or anxiety as your physician may not be able to formulate a diagnosis. You are provided with a detailed evaluation of your health status and a plan to achieve improved health.
CHRONIC DISEASE/LIFESTYLE CHANGE
