PATIENT INFORMATION 

What to expect from your Functional Medicine consultation: 

Your hormonal system produces your sex and stress hormones; your digestive system breaks down food for use by the body; and your detoxification system protects you from free radicals and chemical toxicity, both from your environment and from your diet. Every health issue can be traced back to a problem within one or more of your three body systems.   

Through a detailed medical history and targeted lab testing, that you can do in the privacy of your own home, Dr. Ballehr will assess how each system is working and design an individualized program to rebalance your body. 

STEP 1 – Start by registering with Living Matrix and complete the intake forms – HERE
Living Matrix forms may take up to one hour of your time to accurately answer questions regarding your personal and family health history.

STEP 2 – Schedule your initial one-hour consultation.
Once you have completed the Living Matrix forms Dr. Ballehr will email you a link to schedule your initial consultation. Dr. Ballehr may contact you regarding any additional medical history needed prior to the initial consultation.

During your initial consultation Dr. Ballehr will review all medical history and recommend lab work specific for you. Once your lab work has been completed, Dr. Ballehr will explain the meaning of your test results to you in a follow up consultation. She will also create an individualized health program for you which will include one or more of the following: diet changes, nutritional supplements, exercise, lifestyle and stress management recommendations.  

Subsequent consultations are scheduled to monitor your progress and to modify your program. 

In general, most patients can plan on the new client consultation and 4 to 5 follow up appointments within a one year period of time.  Once health is balanced and maintained the average patient can expect to return to a functional medicine physician once or twice a year for follow up.
