Functional Medicine at Chiropractic Chicago

Dr G talking to patient about chartToday, health problems seem to affect nearly everyone. At Chiropractic Chicago, we know it doesn’t have to be that way. Health is a normal state, not one of sickness. If you’re seeking to regain your well-being, you have a powerful tool when you use functional medicine.

Functional medicine is all about getting to the root cause of your most troubling health challenges.

Your Functional Medicine Consultation

The initial appointment you’ll have for functional medicine is with Dr. G. She will sit down with you to discuss your concerns. Then, you’ll get her best recommendations as to the standard or specialty forms of testing that are likely going to get us some answers. The goal is to get to the underlying source of what’s happening in the body, or determine which bodily systems need to be addressed or supported.


Here are some common tests we can do as part of our analysis:

  • Heavy metal testing – a group of tests that measures the levels of possibly harmful metals in your blood
  • Food sensitivity testing – assesses how your immune system responds to various types of food
  • Hormone testing – is used to evaluate for hormonal imbalances that may be causing your symptoms
  • DUTCH Test – a popular, sought-after test that measures 4 groups of hormones, metabolites, and other biomarkers including sex hormones, adrenal stress hormones, and brain neurotransmitters.

Recommendations For Your Specific Needs

When your laboratory testing results are sent to the office, we’ll uncover your particular needs. From these tests, we can recommend supplementation and the appropriate supplementation for you. We’ll create a protocol that works for your individual needs.

Typically, we recommend chiropractic along with functional medicine. The nervous system is your body’s master control system. Through chiropractic, we concentrate on enhancing the health of your nervous system, because if you’re not well, it’s highly likely that your nervous system needs help.

We do, however, have many functional medicine patients who see another chiropractor. But if your chiropractor doesn’t offer functional medicine, you’re welcome to see us just for this service.

How often will we want to see a patient who is coming in for functional medicine?

We typically want to see any functional medicine patient weekly or monthly – and that all depends on why they are coming in and how the treatment is going. It varies depending on the individual.
What types of testing do you utilize with functional medicine?

You’ll have access to urine testing, saliva testing and blood testing as a part of your functional medicine consultation.
Do you have a particular provider I'll see for functional medicine?

You will work directly with Dr. G when you see us for functional medicine. She has a depth of experience and training in all things functional medicine.
How long does a functional medicine program last?

The program that you have will depend on your individual needs. We will work with you until your needs are met or until you get the results that you wish for.
How do I know if functional medicine is right for me?

Functional medicine is something that just about everyone can benefit for. This approach is all about uncovering the true cause of your problems. If you’re struggling with your health, functional medicine is likely a good choice for you.
