At Functional Medicine of Idaho, we are committed to providing our patients and community with preventative, evidence-based, functional medicine to help combat the COVID-19 global pandemic. 

Masks

Functional Medicine of Idaho is complying with all CDC mandates. Clinic team members at all locations are wearing masks, while allowing patients to maintain the freedom to make their own health choices.

Vaccine Information

Our providers are available to discuss vaccination and help patients make an informed decision. To schedule an appointment to speak with your provider about vaccination, please call our office at (208) 385-7711.

COVID Appointment Policy

Functional Medicine of Idaho is offering telemedicine COVID visits for established patients.

The data is clear that acting quickly after COVID-19 exposure or onset of symptoms is imperative for a quick recovery. With hospitals and urgent cares filling up and the growing staffing shortage in healthcare facilities, many sick patients are not getting the care they need quick enough. 

Using protocols that combine medication and supplements to support your immune system and keep you from becoming severely ill, our functional medicine providers are ready and able to help you tackle COVID and optimize your immune health. 

If you have been exposed, are experiencing symptoms, or are waiting on a test result, call our office at (208) 385-7711 to schedule a telemedicine COVID visit.

Functional & Acute Appointment Policy

When scheduling an appointment at Functional Medicine of Idaho, please notify the scheduling team members if you have symptoms suspicious of COVID-19. These could be symptoms such as fever, cough, loss of taste or smell, body-aches, or other flu-like symptoms. We will make every effort to see that you receive the most appropriate type of appointment to keep yourself and our staff as safe as possible. 

Patients with symptoms of COVID-19 should get tested at a local pharmacy, urgent care, or hospital, and will be offered a telemedicine appointment with one of our providers.

Patients known to have COVID-19 will be scheduled for a telemedicine appointment. If you prefer to be seen physically, please go to the nearest urgent care or emergency room.

Supplement Pick-Up

If you are picking up supplements for yourself or someone in your household who is experiencing symptoms of COVID or has had a positive COVID test in the last 10 days, please stay in your car and call the supplement counter to complete your purchase over the phone. We will bring your supplements to your car.

If you have any questions about our COVID policies, please send an email to info@funmedidaho.com.

Adult & Pediatric Immune Support Supplement Kit

The body’s capacity to fight disease and infection lies within the immune system. This complex system is made of cells, tissues, and organs that work together to recognize, identify, and respond to infection or injury in the body. Due to the complexity of the immune system, there are multiple factors involved in maintaining optimal immune balance. In addition to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, incorporating the proper supplements into you or your child’s routine can provide support for the numerous biochemical reactions that your body uses to fight infection.
