In most cases, a one-size-fits-all approach to health care simply doesn’t work for everybody. That’s why Renata Orna, DO, at ReViva Wellness Center in Orlando, Florida, incorporates functional medicine into every individualized treatment plan she designs specifically for your unique needs. Functional medicine addresses the root of your pain, rather than masking your symptoms. For more information on the benefits of functional medicine, call ReViva Wellness Center or book an appointment online.
Functional medicine is a holistic approach to treatment, addressing the underlying cause of a disease or source of pain to treat your whole body.
Physicians who integrate functional medicine into their care plans understand that an imbalance in one part of the body can affect your whole system. That’s why it’s important not to focus exclusively on your symptoms.
The ReViva Wellness Center team spends time with their patients, analyzing their medical history and examining any lifestyle, environmental, or genetic factors that may affect a patient’s quality of life.
Functional medicine offers many benefits over conventional medicine for patients who are looking for meaningful changes in their overall health and well-being. Some of these benefits include:
Functional medicine is a collaboration between you and your health care provider. Dr. Orna wants to know about your lifestyle habits, symptoms, genetic history, and health goals before working with you to design a treatment plan that makes sense for you.
Functional medicine focuses on addressing the root of your problem, rather than just the symptoms. By working with you to find out exactly what’s causing your symptoms, Dr. Orna can target the problem head-on. This approach reduces the need for opioids and other medications that simply mask your symptoms.
Dr. Orna takes a comprehensive approach to evaluation and treatment, working with you to prevent disease. This may include nutritional counseling, lifestyle changes, medication changes, or physical therapy.
The goal of functional medicine is to optimize function by taking into account your genetics, biochemistry, nutritional habits, and more. These ideologies are most often implemented when treating chronic conditions, such as:
Dr. Orna discusses your condition with you and addresses what treatment approach may prove the most effective.
A natural treatment used in functional medicine is cannabidiol or CBD oil. One of many chemical components of the marijuana plant that does not produce any form of high, CBD can help reduce pain, anxiety, depression, and more. Research supports the neuroprotective properties of CBD, and it can even help treat acne.
Food sensitivity testing is another service available through ReViva Wellness Center. Understanding how certain foods affect your body is an important step in avoiding gastrointestinal distress and enhancing your overall nutrition.
Epigenetic therapy is also available, giving you access to cutting-edge treatments that alter the expression of your genes. Dr. Orna often incorporates these therapies into cancer treatment plans.
