Uncovering the Root Causes: A Functional Medicine Approach

Updated: May 21

At the Unscripted Clinic, we're dedicated to transforming the way we think about health. Our philosophy goes beyond simply treating symptoms—instead, we aim to cultivate health as a vibrant state of being, not just the absence of disease. Our focus is on you, the patient, making our care truly patient-centered. Here’s how we put this philosophy into practice.


Understanding the Whole Picture


Our approach is rooted in functional medicine, which integrates traditional Western medical practices with what might be considered "alternative" or "integrative" medicine. At the helm is our Functional Medicine nurse, Cara, who takes a unique approach by looking "upstream" to consider the complex web of interactions in a patient’s history, physiology, and lifestyle that can lead to illness.


We don't just ask what the symptoms are; we ask why they exist. We consider your genetic makeup, your internal states—mind, body, and spirit—and external factors like your physical and social environments. This holistic view helps us understand how these elements interact to affect your health.


Tailored Health Plans


Listening to your story is just the beginning. By understanding your unique challenges and conditions, we tailor health plans that leverage nutrition, exercise, functional lab testing, and other non-pharmacological treatments. This may include herbal remedies, supplements, therapeutic diets, detoxification programs, and stress-management techniques, all selected to suit your specific needs.


The Science of Symptoms


We see your symptoms as a form of communication. Instead of muting them with temporary fixes, we strive to interpret what they signify about your health. This involves a deep dive into the underlying causes of any disease you might be experiencing, employing a systems-oriented approach and engaging you as an active participant in your health journey.


Empowering You


Our ultimate goal is to empower you with sovereignty over your health. This is particularly vital for those who have been told their symptoms are unfounded or that everything appears normal when it doesn't feel that way. At Unscripted Clinic, we listen—we’re here to understand your experiences and work together to address them.


Addressing Modern Health Challenges


Our current environment has led to startling statistics: 93% of Americans are considered metabolically unhealthy, and a significant portion of both children and adults are overweight. These issues contribute to a host of chronic diseases, and unfortunately, that's not our current health care model is good at. The current health care system is really good at acute care, but that's not all that we, in the modern world, need to be healthy.


A Journey of Self-Discovery


We view the journey toward optimal health as one of self-discovery. It's about creating a map that guides you through understanding and adjusting the imbalances in your body. This journey isn’t just about physical health—it encompasses the environmental inputs, inflammation and immune balance, hormone and neurotransmitter functions, gut health, detoxification, and the crucial relationship between mind and body.


Your Role in this Evolution


As we look to the future, we invite you to join us in redefining healthcare. It’s not just about treating diseases but about creating a healthy, balanced life where you can flourish. Our clinic is committed to guiding you through this transformative process, providing support and expertise along the way.


Are you ready to explore a new path to health? Let’s embark on this journey together, learning and growing towards a healthier, fuller life. At Unscripted Clinic, your health story unfolds not just with our support but with your active involvement, crafting a wellness plan as unique as you are. Let's redefine health together, embracing its fullest, most vibrant potential.
