Debunking 5 Functional Medicine Myths

Myth # 1 – I’ve tried “everything”

This is a phrase that we hear over and over on our discovery calls. Many patients feel like they’ve done everything that they can to get better. Within a few short minutes, it’s clear that there were many stones still left unturned. When a person submits to having “tried everything” they subconsciously submit to the idea that nothing more can be done. Most people we speak to have never had the right functional lab testing, a comprehensive timeline history, or the right guidance to ensure success.  This is where we feel most illnesses and failed attempts to heal stem from. Chances are there are many aspects of your health that have not been fully explored.

Myth # 2 – If this worked, my doctor would know about it

Allopathic medicine operates out of a completely different paradigm than functional medicine. Western medicine focuses on the name of the disease and takes a symptom-based, one size fits all approach. Functional medicine is more focused on the root causes of your health issues and provides a personalized plan. We believe that a combination of both approaches is best for our patients. Due to this difference in paradigms, your allopathic doctor will be more educated in acute interventions to help you FEEL better, whereas, a functional medicine approach will be more focused on helping you actually GET better.

Myth # 3 – I don’t have time

Time is your most important asset. We believe that being healthy will free up more time for you to do the things you enjoy most. Our goal is to make time work for you instead of against you. This is why we offer the option and convenience of telephone and video consultations. What you don’t have time for is being sick! All too often, we see people who spend hundreds if not thousands of wasted hours researching solutions online, hopping around from doctor to doctor, missing work, and most importantly losing out on quality time with the ones they love. Remember, if you don’t make time for wellness you will be forced to make time for illness. 

Myth # 4 – Functional medicine is expensive

This is the biggest misconception about functional medicine. In reality, it is the most affordable form of healthcare on the planet. In fact, insurance companies and governments are now running pilot projects to demonstrate the significant cost savings to both patients and healthcare systems using a functional medicine model. It’s always important to recognize the true cost of services that are rendered. Just because something is covered does not make it cheaper. In fact, our average autoimmune patient saves over thousands of dollars each year in medical expenses. It’s also important to note that functional medicine teaches you a liberating life skill which makes your care cheaper overtime versus the allopathic model which gets more and more expensive over time (more testing, more medications, more scans) all while not teaching you a life skill or addressing the root cause.

Myth # 5 – I can figure this out on my own

We live in an information era. This means that you have access to all the world’s information at your fingertips. what you don’t have is information about yourself. This is the missing link in your healing. By having a trained team ask you the right questions and do the right testing, you will have much deeper insights into your personal health challenges and how to overcome them. Functional lab testing clues you into information that you or your doctor would never know otherwise. Our goal when partnering with you is to help identify the root cause of your health problems, teach you the appropriate life skills you need to remedy them and support you as needed. Self-navigating through the sea of conflicting information ends up costing you both your health and your sanity.

Do I see Dr. Osgood for all of my practitioner appointments?

The Adaptation Programs are collaborative programs that are carried out by the GrassRoots team. We believe the more brains on the case the better! You will see Dr. Osgood for the initial 80-minute new patient visit and the 60-minute first follow up visit. The next series of practitioner follow-up visits will be conducted by Dr. Osgood or another Functional Medicine practitioner within the clinic. Each week Dr. Osgood meets with the GrassRoots team to discuss all patient cases so each team member is up to speed with the current plan of care. Dr. Osgood oversees all patient cases from the beginning to the end of your program.

Do you offer financing?

The following options are available to pay for the program: 

One Payment Option- Patient pays one upfront payment for the Program Fee.

Payment Plan– Patient pays 50% of Program Fee upon completion of the initial visit, and the remaining 50% of the program fee will be automatically billed to the card on file 30 days following the initial visit.

Advance Care Financing- Qualifying applicants can apply for an Advance Care Card which can be used for all health-related expenses. If you are going to use the Advance Care Card you must apply at least 7 days prior to your initial appointment so you can use the card at your visit. When you apply online, you will receive an instant answer on if you qualify and what your interest rates will be. Advance Care does offer 0% financing to qualifying applicants.

Do you accept insurance?

We do not accept any form of medical insurance for consultations. We will provide you with an itemized bill with ICD-10 diagnostic codes and CPT codes at the end of your consultation which you may easily file with your insurance company. Some of the laboratory testing we collect may be submitted through your insurance, but we cannot guarantee they will cover any or all of the costs. You may use pre-tax dollars from your Health Savings Account (HSA) to pay for your consultations and lab fees.

How much should I expect to invest in lab testing?

Comprehensive testing is one of the most valuable tools in a functional medicine approach. At your first appointment, we will determine which conventional and functional labs will best help us uncover the root cause of your symptoms.  

Most patients invest an average of $900-$1600 in laboratory testing at their new patient visit.

With the conventional labs that are ordered, you can bill your insurance directly, or you can pay the discounted pre-pay rate we have negotiated with the lab companies. Specialized functional laboratory testing will likely also be ordered at the initial visit. Some of these tests are billable through insurance, while others are direct pay at our discounted negotiated practitioner rates.

How do I get started with a program?

If you are ready for a root-cause approach to your help with hands-on support, submit an application to request a free discovery call. We’ll review your readiness to begin and determine together if the program is the right fit for you.
