At Louisville Spine and Wellness, we believe in the importance of taking a whole body approach to your well-being. Though chiropractic is a vital part of what we offer, we want to make sure you have access to everything you need to improve your overall health. If you have an imbalance of your body, our functional medicine service may be able to give you exactly what you need.

What Functional Medicine Does For You

Within functional medicine, we seek to find the sweet spot that makes your body function at its best level. Instead of diagnosing a disease and then treating it, functional medicine seeks a more preventative approach. Though you may be experiencing a health problem, our goal is to catch it before it can become more serious. With the correct treatment, you won’t have to face more serious issues in the future.

While traditional medical care focuses on extending your life, we also want to consider what that quality of life will be. For example, if you are bedridden, your life quality won’t be high. We believe there is more that can be done to add life to your years, rather than just adding years to your life.

To discover the imbalances in your body, we have a range of testing available. We can order any type of laboratory testing including bloodwork, saliva study, urine study or a hormone panel. There is no requirement, however, to have these types of testing performed when you start with your functional medicine program.

After a thorough evaluation, we can determine the nature of your particular concerns. Typically, people are on a 90-day or 120-day plan. All the coaching, support and supplements you’ll need in that period are included in your plan. There is no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to functional medicine. Instead, we modify everything we do to your needs and goals.

We always use the least amount of supplements and complete your program in the quickest time possible. It’s our goal to get you to a point where you’re feeling better and won’t need to see us as often.

The primary companies we work with for supplements are Apex Energetics and Designs for Health. Designs for Health has a product that was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. Both companies have a reputation for excellence and have been around for decades. The products are completely natural and reasonably priced, making them accessible to everyone.

Patient Testimonial


Leaky Gut Syndrome

Do you know that the condition of your gut can impact your mood? Though a leaky gut sounds serious, don’t be afraid. It is a fixable issue known as intestinal permeability. This disorder means that toxins and bacteria find a way to “leak” through the intestinal wall, which causes massive inflammation. Left unattended to, this inflammation can cause a whole host of problems.

Relief from these symptoms could be relieved with our 6-week gut repair and detox program. This program is designed to give you a step by step guide on necessary dietary changes as well as Apex Energetics gut repair and detox supplement set. These supplements, in conjunction with an anti-inflammatory diet, will allow your body to start building and repairing healthy tissues, while also addressing long term underlying inflammation.

A Cash-Based Service

Insurance doesn’t recognize functional medicine as a means of addressing your health. For that reason, it is a cash-based service. You may be able to order the labs you need through your medical doctor to use your insurance coverage. Please note, however, that you’ll likely need a diagnosis first to have it covered.
