Frequenly Asked Questions

 

How is Functional Medicine Different?

Functional medicine involves understanding the origins, prevention, and treatment of complex, chronic disease. Hallmarks of a functional medicine approach include:

  • Patient-centered care. The focus of functional medicine is on patient-centered care, promoting optimal health beyond just the absence of disease. By listening to the patient and learning his or her story, the practitioner brings the patient into the discovery process and tailors treatments that address the individual’s unique needs.

  • An integrative, science-based healthcare approach. Functional medicine practitioners consider the complex web of interactions in the patient’s history, physiology, and lifestyle that can lead to illness. The unique genetic makeup of each patient is considered, along with both internal (mind, body and spirit) and external (physical, social and environmental) factors that affect total functioning.

  • Integrating best medical practices. Functional medicine integrates traditional Western medical practices with “integrative” medicine, creating a focus on prevention. Data is obtained through the use of the latest laboratory testing and other diagnostic techniques. A comprehensive plan is then prescribed for the individual patient which may include hormonal balancing, medications, botanicals, supplements, therapeutic diets, detoxification programs, and stress-management techniques.

 

How long does it take to get results?

 

One of the hallmarks of functional medicine is it’s emphasis on patient individuality. While two people may have the same symptoms, their underlying causes may be quite different.   In addition, other factors in their history may either slow or speed up the healing process. The vast majority of our patients feel improvement within the first month of care but realize that it will often take many months for complete resolution of the problem. Our typical programs are a minimum of 6 months long.

  • Simple lifestyle changes, such as regular exercise, better sleep and elimination of alcohol

What is included in the 5* Preventive Medicine Screening ?

Our Consultant will review your initial paperwork and questionnaires and carefully listen to your health concerns.  He will then perform a non invasive bioresonance scan to identify energy imbalances and map our the patient picture. He will explain the relationship of your symptoms to the underlying systems that may be dysfunctional and he will determine what treatment plan may be the most appropriate to improve your condition. This detailed consultation will take 120mins and you will receive a comprehensive health report with a recommended intervention plan.

Do you bill to Insurance Companies ?

Yes we do. We currently work with Bupa Global and all treatments and consultations must be pre-approved prior to the consultation. For all other companies we will provide the relevant documentation after settling of the bill for you to make your claims. We do not accept responsibility for any claims which your insurance companies do not accept.

Can I purchase supplements from other places instead of Singapore Wellness Centre ?

Unfortunately, not all supplement companies are the same.  Quality Issues of ingredients, formulation, and manufacturing process all come together to determine effectiveness and potency. We have thoroughly researched the companies and products for purity, label guarantee with money back guarantee and they are all manufactured through the top professional-line companies in the United States & Europe.  If you want to research your own supplements, just know that Singapore Wellness Centre will not be able to provide any specific dosing instructions on them.
