Functional medicine views the body as a network of connected pathways. Your functional medicine practitioner will spend time digging into your health issues during your initial 4-hour consultation to discover the source, or sources, and contributors responsible for them.

Comprehensive testing eliminates any guesswork associated with identifying imbalances that may be occurring in your body. Your practitioner will design your targeted therapy strategy based on the results of recommended lab testing, addressing the core cause of your illness instead of dealing with symptoms only.

How do I book an appointment via telehealth?

When you join our six-month program, you'll be given a unique telehealth meeting link for your practitioner and one for your health coach that you'll use throughout the course of your time with us. You may receive these links via email when you schedule a session, which you can use to access the virtual meeting room to begin your session with your healthcare team member. All you need is a computer or phone, an internet connection, and somewhere quiet and comfortable to sit.

What can I expect during my initial telehealth consultation with Melbourne Functional Medicine?

At your initial telehealth consultation, your functional medicine specialist will spend four hours with you to delve into your health condition in detail. Your practitioner will begin by asking you questions about your health history, lifestyle habits, genetics, and other factors that impact your health issue during the first part of the session. During the second half of the session, your practitioner will organise all of the pieces of your health puzzle for you and explain what they mean so far, as well as what the initial strategy is going to be. They will also answer any queries you have at this time.

As the session draws to a close, your health coach will come in and join you and your practitioner so that everyone understands your health plan and how it will be carried out. This way, they'll know what assistance you'll require right away, such as navigating functional tests or placing vitamin orders and can assist you from session one.
