Functional Medicine

Beyond primary care.

Coastal Health Group founding physician Dr. Jonn McClellan has benefited personally from a functional medicine approach to his own health situation. It was on the basis of this experience that he sought to and now offers functional medicine to Coastal Health Group patients.

Functional medicine works to identify and address the root causes of disease, regarding the body as one complex system, not a collection of independent organs, each with its own dedicated medical specialty. The byproduct of the functional medicine approach is medical care that seeks to treat the entire system, thereby offering whole body benefits. Beyond alleviation of symptoms functional medicine seeks to deliver an enhanced sense of wellness.

Hormone Balancing

Hormones, including estrogen, testosterone, adrenaline and insulin are all vital chemical messengers. They impact many aspects of your overall health.

The entire endocrine system works together controlling the level of hormones circulating throughout your body.  If one is even slightly imbalanced it can cause widespread, major health problems. Hormone balancing.

IV Therapy

Intravenous (IV) therapy optimizes individual function from the cellular level by balancing the nutrient deficiencies that impact personal function and performance. A vitality medicine, IV therapy delivers the highest level of nutrient absorption.

Bypassing the gastrointestinal tract, nutrients enter a patient’s system at the cellular level. Here, they have their most beneficial and lasting impact. Because the digestive process is removed from the equation it does not dilute the nutrients. Healing relief is almost immediate.

Chelation Therapy

Chelation Therapy reduces the toxic metal-induced free radicals that cause development of arteriosclerosis and a host of other degenerative diseases associated with aging.

By normalizing the internal chemistry of cells, the body’s regulation of calcium and cholesterol are improved, allowing the body to heal and to restore blood flow via the blood vessels. Over a period of months this intravenous therapy can bring dramatic improvement to many metabolic and physiological processes.

Digestion and Gut Therapy

Patients with gut Dysbiosis, Leaky Gut, Candidiasis and other gastrointestinal issues can realize life-changing results. Recovery spans three to six months to realize the full benefit of the therapy.  On the path to maximum recovery, patients experience improved stamina, slimming bodes, increased mental and emotional functioning, decreased soreness in muscles and a heightened sense of wellbeing.

Age Management Therapies

Anti–Aging is a very misleading term. Aging is an inevitable part of life, and so many of us resign ourselves to accepting it with grace. The truth is, although growing older is unavoidable, many of the effects of aging are preventable. With the right diet, lifestyle, and hormonal and nutritional support, degenerative diseases and age-related health problems can be avoided or minimized.
