What is Functional Medicine:
Functional Medicine is medical practice or treatments that focus on optimal functioning of the body and its organs, usually involving systems of holistic or alternative medicine. It focuses on interactions between the environment and the gastrointestinal, endocrine, and immune systems.
Functional Medicine is a more personalized medicine that requires detailed knowledge of your medical history, your lifestyle habits, your social history.
Functional Medicine is another approach to finding the cause of the patient’s condition.
How does Dr. Johnson Approach Functional Medicine in her Practice:
We try not to look at just the signs and symptoms but consider your lifetime exposure to toxins, nutrition, stress, injury, and relationships to evaluate why you are having these signs and symptoms. This is a more personalized approach with a lengthy one on one conversation with the Doctor to discuss your health concerns and get to the root cause of why you have these health issues. Dr. Johnson does not prescribe drugs for a “quick fix” treatment approach but focuses on the “WHY” and treatment protocol. Due to the “Opioid Crisis”, our approach is more nutritionally based and lifestyle based, utilizing supplements and natural medicine.
What is involved with Functional Medicine Visit:
Visits are based on what the patient is looking for with each treatment. Our clinic does not do large treatment packages. We are a fee for service clinic. There are several options for the patient.
We offer face to face office visits: the patient and doctor sit down together and discuss the patient’s concerns and outcomes.
We recognize your time is busy and it is difficult to drive to the clinic. For these situations, we offer a phone consultation or facetime consult. Our “fee for service” visits are based on the time spent with the doctor. Labs, supplements, and other treatments (i.e. chiropractic, acupuncture) or products are additional costs.
We will not diagnose a condition but will work to bring your health back to an optimal condition, which supports the body in a healing process.

Blood Sugar Program: $160
This is a 10 day program where the doctor and patient work together to help reduce blood sugar level, or help jump start to a healthy diet lifestyle. Many patients participate in this plan to lose weight. The program lasts 10 days and it includes: the initial intake of symptoms and concerns, dietary guideline, explanation of why the diet, and the supplements. The patient will return in 10 days for a reevaluation. From this point we will provide further guidance/tools, along with changes in the diet for a lifetime approach in blood sugar control.
YEAST CLEANSE: $140
Many patients do not respond to diets, or have conditions that are not being resolved by medications or other supplements. Our yeast cleanse is designed to help reduce the amount of yeast in the body, so the body can absorb nutrients and work at its optimal level. This program is a 4 week dietary change, along with supplementation to help rebuild the gut and reduce the yeast. We will have a symptom survey or consultation prior to the visit and after the 4 week reevaluate. Our dietary plan includes a transition into normal lifestyle and we will teach you how to eat the proper foods in all reallife situations. This is a lifestyle change and not just a diet.
HAIR ANALYSIS: $125- $215
A hair analysis is used to determine mineral excess or deficiencies in the body, as well as, look at heavy metal toxicity. Mineral imbalances lead to Thyroid issues, Adrenal issues, Blood Sugar issues, Inflammation issues, and it determines if there are GI issues indicating you are not digesting your foods. The patient will come in and we will take a sample of hair. Hair must not have any chemicals, hairspray, gel, etc. at the time of the cutting. This will take approximately 3-5 minutes. Your hair will be sent off and processed in a lab. Results usually return within 2-3 weeks. If the patient only wants the hair analysis and report with an interpretation from the doctor, this is $125.
If the patient would like to discuss with doctor issues they have been having, a more detailed interpretation of the report, and a treatment protocol, this is $215.
