One of the ways your body stays healthy is through a built-in mechanism that is designed to filter and eliminate harmful chemicals and substances. This elimination cycle relies on your detoxification pathways, which include your kidneys, gut, and liver. ⁠⁠

You encounter toxins every single day in your food and environment. When your body is burdened with too many toxins, your natural detox process can get sluggish and toxins can remain active longer than your system can handle. ⁠If toxins build up, your health declines, your metabolism becomes disrupted, and chronic disease can be triggered. ⁠

Environmental Detox Shared Medical Visit

For patients who are interested in learning how to reduce their toxic intake and overall toxic load, we offer an Environmental Detox Shared Medical Visit. During this foundational class, you will learn how toxins affect your health and how to avoid toxins in your food, air, water, beauty products, household products, lawn care items, and more.

Shared Medical Visit FAQs

What is a shared medical visit?

Shared medical visits (SMVs) are hour-long sessions where patients are seen by a provider, nutritionist, or health coach in an educational, interactive, group setting. This improves patient access to care and educational resources, and has been linked to better patient outcomes.

How many people will be in my shared medical visit?

Shared medical visits can vary in size, but no more than 10 new patients will be in a session.

May I bring my spouse, kids, or friends to a shared medical visit?

Shared medical visits are group medical experiences designed specifically for functional medicine patients. All FMI patients are welcome to register for shared medical visits, but only patients who have registered will be admitted into the visit. Non-patients or patients who have not registered for this visit will not be allowed to attend.

Please do not share the Zoom link for any virtual shared medical visits. Every registered patient will receive an email directly with the Zoom link for the visit.

When does my insurance get billed?

Because many health insurance companies do not offer coverage for health coaching appointments, this service is also considered “cash pay” at Functional Medicine of Idaho, regardless of insurance coverage. Payment is due at the time of service.
