Functional Medicine is the science based approach to medicine that is patient focused in determining the root cause of illness while empowering the patient to work together with the practitioner to support optimal wellness. Functional Medicine keeps the care in the patients hands and allows them to play an active role in their healing journey.
IV Hydration Therapy
IV therapy delivers vitamins and minerals through a delivery system that is superior to oral supplementation because the nutrients are delivered directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the GI tract. This allows for faster results and more focused therapies to assist in providing missing nutrients to the patient. Our IVs are preservative free and are administered by our Registered Nurse and tech ensuring the safest and most effective IV therapy in Northern Illinois.
Chelation Therapy is an intravenous treatment that circulates in the bloodstream and binds with toxins to assist in elimination. They bond with toxic chemicals, heavy metals, and chemicals in the body and then are taken out of, or excreted, from the body. Exposures can accumulate over years or could be a result of an acute process. Don’t let these toxins bring you down.
Holistic Allergy Treatments
Allergy treatments are formulated off of individualized results to formulate personalized sublingual immunotherapy allergy drops while also addressing the root cause of these allergies. Allergy drops offer long-term benefits you can’t achieve from temporary allergy symptom-relieving medications. Immunotherapy is the only allergy treatment that changes your underlying allergic disease.
Lyme Disease is a bacterial infection that is passed from an infected tick bite. When it is caught early it can be treated with antibiotics. However, if no immediate symptoms are exhibited it can lay dormant in the body for weeks, months or years resulting in Chronic Lyme Disease. At Well-Rooted we see much success in our treatments short and long term.
Continuous Glucose Monitoring
We use continuous glucose monitoring to dive deeper into what is going on in the body when addressing anything from metabolic health to weight loss. This tool, combined with developing a health focused nutrition plan with our nutritionist can be used for specific issues or overall wellness. We want you to be successful, so we will be your support every step of the way.
At Well-Rooted we use The Great Plains Laboratory, Inc. MycoTOX urine test to test for eleven different mycotoxins, from 40 species of mold. Based on these results and the comprehensive blood screening, an individualized mold protocol is determined while also addressing the symptoms of mold toxicity to return the patient to a feeling of overall wellness.
Functional Medicine allows the treatment of underlying root causes of autoimmune disease instead of a symptom suppression approach found in many conventional practices. Our approach is to look deeply into the comprehensive blood panel and combine with the in depth history provided by the patient to create a plan of care to both alleviate pain while also correcting the underlying issues.
