An offering from the Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine

Functioning for Life is a robust 10-week program of shared medical appointments designed for new patients to the Center for Functional Medicine. Disease-specific programs have been developed and patients can select the series that is right for them.

These group appointments introduce patients to the functional medicine approach and provide the necessary laboratory testing, health information and dietary guidance needed to achieve optimal wellness. Each week, patients will interact with one of the various functional medicine providers including physicians, nurse practitioners, dietitians and health coaches. Patients will also have access to individualized support and on-going communication with members of their care team throughout the 10-week program.
