Before coming to Functional Medicine of Idaho, I had been dealing with months of unexplained health problems. Now, my stomach issues are nearly gone, I’m sleeping better, and the seasonal allergies I’ve had since childhood are gone. I’m really thankful for Functional Medicine of Idaho’s approach that takes into consideration all parts of life and health.
Functional Medicine of Idaho has changed my life by giving me the information, education and confidence to control my health and wellness. Since being diagnosed with pre-diabetes based on thorough testing at FMI and personal advocacy, I now eat healthier, exercise smarter, reduce stress and avoid toxins. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Like many executives, I’ve lived a life at “full speed”, until the day my body gave out, with literally no energy to do hardly anything. Thanks to the team at Functional Medicine of Idaho, I have changed my diet, improved my sleeping condition, and am on the rebound to a more fully functioning body and a more rewarding lifestyle.
Six months ago, at the age of 47, I suffered a heart attack. While the cardiologist was unable to find a reason for my heart attack, Functional Medicine of Idaho was willing to dig deeper, run extra tests, and do whatever was necessary to find the root cause of my problem. Since then, they have helped me get completely off of the Statin drugs prescribed by the cardiologist. I feel healthier and stronger, and I can’t recommend Functional Medicine of Idaho enough!
