the Toronto Center for Functional Medicine is officially open to integrative functional medicine and naturopathic therapies.
The Toronto Functional Medicine Center (TFMC) has announced that its practice is officially open to patients to overcome health barriers. The clinic is currently accepting new patients.
As a multidisciplinary clinic, this unique Toronto center for functional medicine is passionate about integrated patient care, with an emphasis on naturopathic medicine and evidence-based functional medicine practices. Their clinicians have noticed that patients of integrative and functional medicine physicians are eager to understand their treatments and the functioning of the human body, particularly cellular health. Providing eastern medicine and western medicine encourages their patients to take charge of their health under one roof. TFMC patients can begin to understand how different modalities can help them achieve optimal function in their daily lives.
Adhering to the functional medicine model, TFMC clinicians consider each patient as a unique individual. Indeed, each has different environmental, genetic, lifestyle and health conditions. Most treatments are considered “personalized medicine” because they meet individual health goals.
The Toronto Center for Functional Medicine offers several integrative treatment plans designed to help relieve pain and fatigue, while helping to relieve cognitive and gastrointestinal issues.
A fusion of therapies can also be applied to patient care and chronic disease. For example, this new facility practices a Western approach to acupuncture that also incorporates modern concepts from neuroscience. Some of the latest treatments for TFMC include:
Acupuncture: using neuroscience concepts, needles are painlessly inserted into different points of the body. Medical acupuncture points are used to stimulate nerves, muscles, and connective tissue. Such stimulation is believed to stimulate the activity of the body’s natural pain relievers and increase blood flow.
IV therapy under medical supervision: a nutrient intravenous is inserted into the blood vessels without the unpleasant side effects of oral vitamins, such as nausea. IV therapy can help alleviate brain fog, correct nutritional deficiencies, and improve cell function; it can also help with chronic and acute conditions, while supporting DNA repair, tissue repair, brain function and thyroid conditions.
Functional medicine tests: Some patients still do not feel well despite conventional medicine tests showing normal results. Affected patients may undergo functional medicine tests, which can provide new information about a disease that may not have been seen on ultrasounds or x-rays. TFMC lab tests are available for a variety of conditions, including Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) and food sensitivities.
Additionally, the Toronto Functional Medicine Center provides goal-linked transformational health services to patients. These services can combine diet, exercise and nutritional supplements, and are intended to: help eliminate or alleviate conditions that impact cell function and aging; help reduce free radicals, inflammation and toxicities; and adjust blood sugar.
Transformational services can also help address health issues that naturally arise with age, such as hormonal imbalances, menopause, or andropause (“male menopause”). TFMC’s hormonal optimization programs can help improve sleep, energy levels, and a new outlook on life.
Truly, the clinicians at TFMC are enthusiastic about the functional medicine approach to health. Staff and practitioners are enthusiastic about promoting healthy lifestyles among Torontonians. Their main goal is to encourage optimal health and holistic living, ensuring that each patient’s personal experience with well-being is positive.
The latest addition to the city of Toronto, the TFMC is ideally located in the heart of Toronto, in the prestigious Yorkville neighborhood, and is accessible by public transportation. Since the start of the pandemic, the clinic has successfully implemented safe COVID-19 prevention protocols that include in-person and virtual visits.
The clinic’s integrative medicine practitioners use the least intrusive techniques possible that have the potential to help improve patient outcomes. The wellness team is made up of practitioners of allopathic medicine, naturopathy and other health modalities. All practitioners follow the functional medicine model; this recognizes that the body has the ability to heal itself, which can also help eliminate the need for prescription drugs during treatment.
Prospective patients can contact the TFMC for a consultation by calling (416) 968-6961 or emailing the clinic office at [email protected]. For media inquiries, please contact the Toronto Functional Medicine Center directly.
