About Central Coast Center for Integrative Health
Everything we do at Central Coast Center for Integrative Health is centered around you – the patient – because you hold the keys to so many aspects shaping your health. And without your active participation in your journey to health, none of our wisdom alone can create the desired long-term health outcomes.
Our Core Values Of Care
An Integrative Approach
Rooted in our focus on participatory patient care, it’s our mission to empower you with the knowledge and collective wisdom to create health yourself, no matter where you are right now. We firmly believe that knowledge is powerful, but only as powerful as the action you take with it. We therefore strive to educate our patients on the steps they need to take their health back and restore their health for a better future.
Guided by our care team, you will embark on an integrative approach to your wellness, drawing from the best of personalized healthcare and functional medicine – including customized lifestyle modifications that will significantly improve your health and symptoms.
A functional medicine practitioner spends time with the patient to determine interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long term complex health problems.
You’ll work one-on-one with our doctors and team to receive the personalized attention you deserve.
During your consultation, you will meet with one of our doctors to review your case and determine if you are a good candidate for care. If accepted as a patient, the doctor will put together a personalized care plan depending on your needs and health goals.
It is important in Functional Medicine to recognize that even patients that share a common “label” of disease often have different causes of dysfunction and therefore need to be treated as individuals not confined to treatments set as standards by the disease name.
We work to identify the root cause(s) of your condition using the latest diagnostic tests that are often overlooked by many standard healthcare providers.
By identifying where the dysfunction exists in the body, we are able work with the patient to put together an individualized plan focused on reversing those issues and supporting their journey back to regaining their health.
Did you know that it takes on average 17 years for clinical breakthroughs to make their way into the standard of care? At Central Coast Center for Integrative Health, our entire team is deeply committed to staying in-the-know with all the latest research.
All our staff are life-long learners, continuously upgrading their knowledge through sharing best practices and seeking out innovative, out-of-the-box ideas to help our patients achieve their health goals.
Root Cause Resolution
Functional medicine is a patient-centered approach that focuses on the underlying root cause(s) of dysfunction, not just the symptoms.
It is the most contemporary form of modern medicine. There is a shift from a disease-centered focus to a patient-centered approach. We spend time to get to know you. In addition to a thorough history and physical exam, many times lab tests are utilized as a gateway to help determine any deviant physiology to be addressed.
Just like your gut bacteria thrive on symbiotic, mutually beneficial relationships, your journey to health is achieved through the power of working as a team. Regaining health is an active process and we work with our patients to not only give them the knowledge to know what is wrong but also the tools to able to utilize that knowledge with easy to implement actions.
As a patient at Central Coast Center for Integrative Health, you become part of our integral team as we work together to create great health outcomes.
The Philosophy That Drives Us
The philosophy that motivates everyone on our care team at Central Coast Center for Integrative Health is pretty simple:
“Do whatever it takes to effectively, comfortably, and safely help the patient. Whatever that ‘whatever’ is.”
