Functional Primary Care

What is Functional Primary Care?

Today, conventional healthcare is impacted by the fact most doctors oversee the health of 2,000 to 5,000 patients and are governed by third parties (insurance).  Fee-for-Service healthcare does not allow the time or freedom to create a true therapeutic relationship between a patient and their doctor, a key factor to better health outcomes. Enter functional medicine The Woodlands residents can trust.

Dr. Minni Malhotra leverages the best medical technology and sophisticated laboratory tests to provide you a preventative and diagnostic view of your health.  By searching for key nutritional and disease markers, your advanced lab panel will give a complete picture of your current health, potential risks, and wellness opportunities.

According to the CDC, Chronic Disease is the leading cause of Death and Disability in America. Functional Medicine helps you explore your personal health risk and provide preventative and restoration to your health

Our symptoms and our current state of health are an accumulation of actions, events, and environmental influences that have taken place over the course of our entire lives. Events in our distant past, even our childhood years, may provide clues to solving the puzzle and identifying the root cause. Even events that occurred at or before birth, influenced by your mother’s health years before you were born, may play a role. Scientists are discovering that our genes and the way they are expressed are influenced by what our ancestors may have experienced several generations ago. In fact, this discovery has spawned a whole new scientific discipline – epigenetics – to understand how our nutrition, lifestyle, environment, and events in our daily life influence gene expression. Imagine that somehow last winter your small backyard garden had a spill of 10 gallons of gasoline, and you didn’t know about it. In the spring your seedlings do not take root and grow, leaving you wondering “What’s wrong with these seedlings?” That’s why a “Big Picture” history is so important.
