Functional Health

The Functional Health Program with Benton Integrative Medicine allows you to explore and deeply understand your unique health needs. No two people are alike and the knowledge you gain about your unique body will empower you to put in place changes leading to more optimal health. By looking at your health history, biochemistry and current diet, lifestyle and environment we will guide you in defining how your body is functioning, what you may need for greater balance, and what your optimal healing environment includes. Because we all have had different life experiences, we all need unique steps to overcome chronic health issues.

While some steps are consistent for all members of the program, there is a great deal of individualized support based on what YOU and your body require. This program is entirely virtual with all sessions being conducted via phone over the course of approximately four months.  This allows you to support yourself and your health in the comfort of your own home with virtual support along the way.   Each session includes education and collaboration so that you remain in the drivers seat when making decisions about your health.  Rather than a model of being prescribed a fix, this program teaches you to understand why symptoms may be present in the first place and how to overcome them in line with the natural functioning of the body as a whole. 


Think of it as an investment for your health for the long run that will leave you feeling much better and saving money over years in health care costs. Our goal is to work with you to define what you need to have in place for optimal health. We hope to have the opportunity to be a part of your team for health care recovery or optimization.
