Holistic Healthcare

What is Holistic Healthcare?

Synergy’s expert team of Health Consultants utilize Functional and Lifestyle Medicine principles to determine the root cause of your symptoms and physical disharmonies. Our experts develop a partnership-style relationship with you and draw upon a science-based approach that examines contributing factors such as lifestyle, genetics and environment.

Lifestyle Medicine in particular is a medical approach that uses evidence-based behavioral interventions to prevent, treat and manage chronic disease. By integrating lifestyle factors into practice or health program design, you work with your Health Consultant, an MD, and receive individualized recommendations about nutrition, physical activity, stress management, sleep, social support, and environmental exposures to help you make lasting improvements to your health and well-being. 


Meet with a Health Consultant

Our Health Consultants build a partnership with you and form a comprehensive understanding of you, your genetics, your biochemical and lifestyle factors, your current state of well-being, any issues you are experiencing, and your desired outcomes. Prior to meeting your Health Consultant for the first time, you will complete a detailed intake form with questions about your past and present health and well-being, family history, significant life events, dietary choices, movement regime and other self-care practices. This may also include other tools that will help to provide a comprehensive health overview, such as recent or prior lab work. 

How it workS

Our Health Consultant Packages are 4 months in duration and include one session with a Coach to optimize your potential to successfully achieve your goals while working on your health program. Together with your team, a Care Plan is developed based on individual results rather than a one-size-fits-all plan. Our Care Manager will guide you through the process, from scheduling your first 90-minute Health Consultant visit and then your 60-minute follow-up visits with your Health Consultant and Coach. Visits are generally bi-weekly and may be in person or via telehealth. If desired, you have the option of working with a Coach alongside your Health Consultant for added support and accountability.

Partner with a Coach

Our Health and Life Coaches partner with you over to define your vision for a healthy and fulfilling life, work with you to co-create a personalized self-directed Care Plan to attain your vision, and provide support and accountability as you work towards your well-being goals. Your Care Plan will encompass the five pillars of well-being—physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual—with targeted strategies to attain your desired health and life outcomes.

how It Works

You will meet with your Coach for an initial 90-minute Discovery Session and then for six 60-minute sessions over a 4 month period. Your appointments will be dedicated to exploring your individually designed and measurable Care Plan. You will receive support and accountability to overcome challenges, adjust habits, and boost wellness in all 6 Pillars of Well-Being. Through regular reflection with your Coach, you will gain a new perspective on which wellness modalities in your Care Plan work best for you, what you enjoy and what is sustainable. Over time, purposeful choices replace unconscious patterns, helping you move in the direction you want to go. Our Coaches are a committed partner in your well-being journey, which means that additional coaching, labs or other assistance can be incorporated at any time.
