Functional Integrative Therapeutics is offering a comprehensive
wellness program specifically designed to help people improve and manage the symptoms of fibromyalgia.
Dr. Mark Guariglia DC, CFMP has been helping Fibromyalgia patients at his FibroCare Center since 1996. We are now expanding and integrating this program through FIT to incorporate functional medicine and additional services. We believe that this integrative approach will help patients achieve a better level of understanding and management of their condition.
Most of the patients that we have seen have been through the typical medical approach and have been treated solely for symptoms. Often this involves one doctor for one symptom and another doctor for another. It’s unfortunate that they never seem to find one health advocate that has been able to put their whole unique story together and come up with an approach to help them find wellness. Patients enrolled in this program will find a much different experience in the specific, personalized guidance designed just for their individual findings and needs. The approach used is based on a functional analysis and is comprehensive in nature. With fibromyalgia, one size does not fit all. There are many variables and causative factors that come into play when someone becomes ill. Unfortunately, conventional thinking has mostly been treating the downstream effects and not looking upstream to discover the cause.
We use science based objective testing, clinical nutrition, exercise physiology, stress reduction and life style changes in order to achieve optimal results.
In the many years that we have been helping our Fibromyalgia patients, we have found an obvious truth; patients are often sick and tired of being on that proverbial “medical treadmill.” They are frustrated with the lack of relief and understanding that they have received. Often after months or even years, they realize that there must be a different way to get help. They don’t want the side effects of the medications while still suffering from the pain and they don’t want to be bounced around from doctor to doctor anymore. These are the types of patients that most often seek our care. We offer a different approach that is natural and integrative.
Why you should attend this program:
Through our FibroCare program we are committed to assisting you each and every step of the way and will help keep you encouraged and motivated. We realize the pain of fibromyalgia and we take that fact under serious consideration. When patients partner with us, we become a team in building toward a common goal of improved overall health.
Only after a complete understanding of the patient’s unique situation can a proper program be instituted but on average it takes approximately 16 weeks to complete the program. Patients are individually guided and counseled by Dr. Guariglia throughout this time and are scheduled as often as necessary depending on their individual needs and the findings in their case.
In addition to the completely customized FibroCare program and personal guidance of Dr. Guariglia, here’s what you’ll get:
Patients that enroll in the FibroCare program will be provided with all the necessary equipment and supplies depending on what is best for their particular needs. These may include books specifically chosen because of their relevance to your personal experiences and symptoms, CDs, therapeutic tools, website memberships and more.
In following the same protocol as FIT, conventional blood work is often used as an initial diagnostic tool. This is often covered by insurance, however, if any additional functional testing is necessary, that is considered an uncovered expense and is the patient’s responsibility. Other non-covered expenses that may be incurred by the patient include any nutraceuticals, herbs or homeopathic remedies. The exact out of pocket expense for these additional items cannot be determined before patients are first assessed but most patients average an additional $400.00 – $600.00 for testing and supplements throughout the course of the program.
Cost of program:
