Conscious Medicine (678-899-0558), an integrative clinic based in Alpharetta, has announced its functional lab testing services for patients in Atlanta.

Conscious Medicine now offers testing for factors that are not identified by conventional blood tests, but that can impact a patient’s health and cause various issues. These can include toxicity load, nutrient deficiencies, gut microbiome health, neurotransmitter and hormone imbalances, inflammation status, blood sugar dysregulation, genetic mutations, and biological age.

Dr. Truc Nguyen, MD, IFMCP, a functional medicine doctor and the founder of the clinic, explains that the factors that are often overlooked in the conventional healthcare model are toxicity, deficiencies, and psychology. The newly announced lab tests are part of a comprehensive assessment during which a complex set of factors are analyzed to uncover the underlying causes of the conditions and symptoms experienced by the patient.

“We must combine what we know about the human body with individualized, patient-centered, science-based care,” says Dr. Truc. “Because of this, we are able to address the causes of complex, persistent diseases that are brought on by lifestyle choices, exposures to the environment, and genetic factors.”

During the initial consultation, Dr. Truc examines the patient’s health history and lifestyle, investigates the possible causes of their symptoms and diseases, and prescribes the necessary lab tests. An individual holistic treatment plan is then developed, comprising detox, fitness, lifestyle changes, and nutrition guidance from Ana Marcos, the clinic’s nutritionist.

In comparison with conventional medicine, which focuses on eliminating symptoms and treating diseases using medication and surgery, the integrative, holistic approach at Conscious Medicine is based on person-centered care. The functional doctors prioritize prevention and focus on restoring balance in the body and mind to address the root causes of the patient’s health problems.

Common conditions that the clinic helps patients manage include leaky gut, chronic stress, fatigue and insomnia, skin problems, hormonal imbalances, digestive disorders, high blood pressure, autoimmune conditions, and various chronic diseases. According to Dr. Truc, 86% of her patients achieve their health goals in 3-6 months.

“I had been suffering from persistent fatigue and digestive troubles for years,” a satisfied patient said. “I visited several doctors and tried many distinct medicinal drugs. However, nothing worked. Then, I identified a functional medical doctor who ordered a comprehensive lab check from Conscious Medicine. The outcomes showed that I had numerous meal sensitivities and an intestine microbiome imbalance. The doctor developed a customized treatment plan for me. Within a few months, I felt better than ever. I have so much energy now, and my digestive troubles have resolved.”
