The Essentials Program is a comprehensive health and personal optimization program. It is personally designed for anyone looking to elevate their wellness or restore vitality.  The program starts with a careful evaluation of your current and past social/medical/personal history. Based on a careful evaluation of your intake form and after listening to your story, we will determine the most appropriate lab testing to identify the root cause(s) of your symptoms, and then design a personalized health optimization program to address the root cause. We do not diagnose disease, and we do not replace your current medical team or provide acute services.

Our Method

Our team works to evaluate the 6 pillars of health. These include, energy production, detoxification/oxidation, brain health/mindset, diet/digestions, stress/hormones/inflammation, and lifestyle/environment.

Patient Materials

As a patient of Minnesota Center for Functional Medicine, you will receive a comprehensive patient education binder that will act as a resource on your journey. This binder is full of useful tips and covers content such as; nutrition, digestion, detoxification, hormones, exercise, mindfulness, and a 30-day self-care program.

Patient Care Coordination

Our Patient Care Coordinator further personalizes and accelerates your outcomes. They will check in periodically to ensure that you are meeting your health goals and ensure you are supported throughout this journey.

Clinic email access

Access to your practitioner and functional medicine team improves compliance, maintains momentum, and keeps an open dialogue throughout your program. Email your practitioner or patient care coordinator with any questions that you have throughout your program.

Lifestyle and Nutrition Consultation

80% of your clinical outcome is based on your nutrition and lifestyle strategy. Because we realize the value of this and the impact it has on you and your family, we emphasize lifestyle and nutrition throughout the process. By taking better care of yourself, you can lead your family to better health.

Functional Lab Testing

Functional lab testing helps evaluate health on a cellular level. This testing is different from traditional testing because it helps evaluate the root cause(s) of your health challenges instead of just diagnosing you. This testing is done through urine, stool, saliva, and/or blood.

Video Lab Interpretations

Each lab test provides us with detailed clinical data and insight into your cellular function. We want to make sure that you fully understand your lab results and that you can easily share them with your healthcare team if necessary.

Most importantly, the video lab interpretation allows you to become more involved and engaged in your own care. We believe that an informed patient gets much better long-term outcomes and becomes an active participant in their health and wellness.

Customized Supplement Program

After reviewing your lab results and evaluating your mineral and nutrients demands, we will recommend a personalized supplement program. Our recommendations will include only the highest quality products to create more predictable outcomes. We utilize Fullscript to bring you discounted pricing on high quality products and as part of our program you will receive a 10% discount on all orders.
