Function at Your
Functional Medicine in Oklahoma
Functional medicine is a healing-oriented medicine that emphasizes a strong practitioner-patient relationship and addresses the root cause of disease. If you’ve been told there are no solutions or that being medicated is the only answer for your chronic condition, functional medicine is the game-changer you’re looking for.
Take the Lead in Your Wellness Journey
Functional medicine is a treatment approach that puts you as the patient at the forefront of your care. If you’re feeling unwell or living with a chronic condition, taking medication to manage your symptoms might make you feel okay. However, true wellness means thinking outside the box and reversing dysfunction within your body.
While Dr. Bargas can prescribe medicine if that’s what is best for your treatment, functional medicine treatment focuses on restoring balance, reducing inflammation, improving your gut health, and helping you make the necessary lifestyle changes to support your health. You’ll be a key player in the journey and will lead the way in your treatment – and we’ll walk with you every step of the way.
Dr. Bargas is certified by the Institute for Functional Medicine and can treat a wide range of issues, including:
- Hormone imbalance
- Poor gut health
- Histamine intolerance/mast cell activation
- Autoimmune disease
- Tick-borne Illnesses
- Thyroid disorders
- Stress resiliency
- Metabolic health (diabetes)
- Metal and other environmental toxicities
- Vitamin and nutrient deficiencies
- IV therapy
The Functional Medicine Difference
Functional medicine is comprehensive, complex, and individualized. You deserve so much more than being treated like every other patient. It’s not normal to constantly feel exhausted, in pain, depressed, chronically stressed, foggy, or sluggish. And it’s not enough to simply mask these symptoms with medication to simply make it through the day. With a functional medicine approach, we take the time to investigate the underlying conditions that are making you feel unwell and understand what’s causing your discomfort.
Here is what sets functional medicine apart:
Start with a comprehensive visit and assessment. Your first appointment is 60 to 90 minutes. Dr. Bargas will order extensive lab tests, perform a thorough physical exam, conduct a health record analysis, and get to know your situation.
Get your personalized functional lifestyle prescription. Your lifestyle directly affects your health. If you lack nutrition, are sedentary, don’t get enough sleep, or live with a lot of stress, your well-being will suffer. We’ll help you build a lifestyle that supports your health.
Receive nutraceutical and supplement recommendations. We can prescribe medication if needed, but it’s not our go-to solution. We may recommend nutraceuticals, or pharmaceutical alternatives that provide physiological benefits through nutrition, as part of your treatment.
Benefit from holistic, whole-body care. Functional medicine doesn’t just consider the part of your body that’s ailing you. Each part of your body is connected and affects other bodily systems and functions. Holistic care looks at the big picture.
Be treated as a person, not a condition. We don’t believe in placing people in boxes. You are more than a diagnosis. Whether you’ve been diagnosed with a thyroid disorder or generally feel unwell, we’ll search for the root causes of discomfort and come up with a plan that’s unique to you.
“Seriously, I have never been so impressed by a doctor than I am by Dr. Bargas or a field of medicine than I am by functional medicine. I am a few months into learning I have a life-altering disease and I have been going from specialist to specialist trying to get a handle on what is happening. Although each specialist was excellent, it wasn’t until I saw Dr. Bargas and received her functional medicine prescription that I have felt like I am not alone in this. And with her support, not only can handle what is happening with my health but I actually have a chance to improve my overall health and wellness.”C.F. (verified patient)
