Functional Medicine

 

Dr. Kjos' Natural Healing Program

Dr. Neil Kjos is a functional medicine doctor specializing in supporting the body's natural processes and helping the individual regain health naturally, the way it is supposed to be. Inflammation is the cause of nearly every disease process of the body. By identifying what these inflammatory processes are and eliminating them, our bodies can resume a healthy state again.

 

How does it work?

The process is actually quite simple: 

 

First: Take a detailed patient health history and listen to patient concerns

Second: Identify the causes of inflammation through lab testing

Third: Remove the causes of inflammation through diet and supplementation

Fourth: Retest the body to determine the state of improvement

 

With time, not only should the individual feel better, but we should also be able to demonstrate the body is healthier by retesting.

Depending on the severity of the problems, results may vary. However, some patients may experience positive changes in the first couple weeks. 

 

Some of the problems patients seek help for include:

1. Autoimmune Disorders

2. Weight-loss

3. Diabetes

4. Fatigue

5. Heart Disease

6. Fibromyalgia

7. Mood Disorders

8. Rheumatism

Can future visits be conducted over the phone?

Yes.  It is always better to have your consultations in person, however, sometimes that is not possible. Dr. Kjos will spend all the time necessary to complete a successful consultation. Lab kits and supplements can be sent to your house. This is only for existing patients. 

Dr. Kjos' program is for the sole purpose of supporting the body through lab testing, diet, lifestyle, and supplementation. It is in no way to replace the care of your primary care physician.
