Functional Medicine

Improve Overall Health With Functional Medicine

If you’re struggling with healing from a disease, pain, or other ailments, My Natural Health Center can help. We use a variety of natural healing methods, including functional medicine, to help the body heal. Functional medicine explores how and why illness occurs and restores health by addressing the root causes of disease.
Dr. Shostek Shields specializes in functional diagnostics to determine where imbalances and issues originate. We routinely order blood laboratory studies, urinalyses, electrocardiograms, DEXA bone density testing, saliva cortisol testing, hormone panels, adrenal fatigue testing, organic acid tests, neurotransmitter analysis, food allergy testing, and diagnostic imaging (X-rays, MRI, ultrasound), comprehensive and gastrointestinal stool analyses. Our therapies and treatments emphasize minimally invasive approaches, minimized risk to the patient, and a focus on identifying and treating the cause rather than just the symptoms. We use treatments such as clinical nutrition, therapeutic exercise, nutraceuticals, lifestyle changes, vitamin and mineral supplementation, homeopathic medicine, botanical medicine, acupuncture, natural hormone balancing, medical massage, and chiropractic treatments. Dr. Shostek Shields has had good success with many conditions and diseases which have been resolved and managed by combining these more natural methods with science-based diagnostics.

What to Expect

Initial Visit

You’ll spend approximately 2 hours with us during your first visit. We kindly ask that you come prepared with completed paperwork and copies of recent diagnostic tests from other healthcare providers. Our initial conversation will consist of a thorough history intake and physical exam.

Personalized Assessment

During your physical exam and medical history consultation, we’ll ask detailed questions about your current and past health to understand the best ways to treat you. During this time, you’ll have multiple opportunities to ask questions and receive specific information about your symptoms and condition.

Diagnosis & Recommendations

Once the consultation is complete, we’ll provide detailed recommendations for further diagnostic tests and/or lifestyle changes that will start you on the path to healing. In some cases, we can immediately start our patients on an initial treatment plan, which we’ll monitor and adjust over time if needed.
