CHOOSE YOUR BEST PATH
Mint Health has two different components of practice, and it is very important that you are scheduled for the right type of appointment so that you achieve your goals and get the type of guidance that you are looking for from us!
Obstetrics & Gynecology
Conventional OB/GYN with our own Mint Healthy twist!
In our OB/GYN appointments (primarily on Tuesdays and Thursdays, though there are some exceptions), we evaluate and make recommendations for typical OB/GYN concerns. [Link to gynecology and hormone health and obstetrics and prenatal care from services page]. We are able to utilize bloodwork, prescribe appropriate medications and surgeries, make some recommendations on vitamins/supplements when requested, and share documents on nutrition and lifestyle change (if you desire this). The average time that most doctors are able to spend with patients in a typical visit is about 5-10 minutes, and unfortunately this applies to insurance only practices across the board, including our OB/GYN visits.
In OB/GYN at Mint Health, you will have access to all things typically done/addressed in an OB/GYN office, plus the added benefit of Dr. Buchert’s extensive extra training in Integrative Functional Medicine to better understand and approach your particular health and concerns. [Link to gynecology and hormone health and obstetrics and prenatal care from services page]. However, we do not have adequate time or resources to apply in depth Integrative Functional Medicine tools and approach in OB/GYN visits. If you would like to get started with an OB/GYN visit for obstetrics or gynecologic care (with our own Mint Healthy twist, of course!). You may still have access to our Special Services if recommended by Dr. Buchert.
Call for an appointment: Started by calling 250-1025, ext. 1 to make an appointment.
Integrative Functional Wellness
Join the Modern Path to Wellness
In our Integrative Functional Wellness visits (primarily on Mondays and Wednesdays, though there are some exceptions), we are able to take a more thorough and more effective approach to lifelong health and preventive health, as well as addressing difficult/chronic conditions. Integrative Medicine is a partnership of care that involves the full range of physical, emotional, social, and environmental influences that affect a person’s health, and may use interventions from an array of scientific disciplines to guide individuals towards optimal health.
Functional Medicine is an even more specific discipline that focuses on these key components:
Identifying the underlying/root causes of a person’s health concerns/symptoms, as well as understanding the connections between them;
Using more extensive/advanced laboratory based analysis to determine these causes (including blood, urine, stool, and other types of collections);
Using nutrients, supplements, specialized integrative therapies, and medications as needed to address areas of imbalance; and
Focusing ever more on lifestyle changes such as diet, exercise, stress management, sleep (and more!) because we know this is the ONLY way to actually create meaningful and permanent change.
In this approach, we entail a comprehensive learning/coaching component to teach you how to maintain your health, as well as more extensive visit times (about 30 minutes, as needed). We use a membership plan to allow us the time and resources to provide these services to you. (We help you set up a monthly plan that fits your budget.) You reap the rewards of this investment into yourself for the rest of your life! Check out what types of health concerns are best addressed through this method. If this may be your best path, watch the short video below and follow the steps as instructed to get started.
