What is Functional Medicine?
Functional Medicine focuses on the optimal functioning of the entire body and it’s organs, rather than targeting individual symptoms. We focus on addressing underlying causes of symptoms and diseases. Genetic, environment and lifestyle factors all have a direct influence of long term health and chronic issues.
What is Reset Lab's methods?
We use a combination of Naturopathic wisdom, Herbal Medicine and Functional Medicine testing, to find underlying imbalances. We then use lifestyle, nutrition, herbals and supplements to form a pathway to reset balance.
How is Reset Labs Approach Different?
Traditional Medicine can be focus on treating symptoms, we like to see these symptoms as indicators as part of discovering underlying imbalances.
How long does it take to get results
Results vary by each person. Some people feel dramatic improvement within the first month, others may take a bit longer. Our standard programs are for a minimum of 3-6 months. Remember, your body didn’t fail overnight. Years of stress and illness takes its toll and it takes a proper amount of time to restore. On average it takes one month of repair for each year you’ve suffered from a specific problem.
