July – What’s New This Month at Functional Medicine SF

Prescript-Assist
Functional Medicine SF stopped recommending Prescript Assist late last year due to formula changes. We have received notice that the company is now recalling the product because of potential exposure to undeclared allergens, including nuts, seafood, dairy, eggs, and peanuts. No illnesses relating to the product have been reported to date. We recommend that if you are currently taking Prescript-Assist you switch to MegaSporeBiotic. Please schedule an appointment with Lisa if you need further instructions or guidance. MegaSpore is available on NutriementRx at http://nutrimentrx.com/shop/megasporebiotic/megasporebiotic/.

Contact your retailer or LL's Magnetic Clay for a refund at 1-800-257-3315. More information is available at https://www.fda.gov/safety/recalls/ucm612727.htm.

 

Announcing Group Wellness Sessions: Join our New Community 
We have been listening. Many of our patients have talked to us about feeling alone as they navigate through their journey. Others have told us that they had someone to share resources and support with. We know that functional medicine is expensive, time intensive, and takes a lot of motivation and work.

Functional Medicine SF is happy to announce that we are starting a weekly Group Wellness visit all for patients. Group Wellness sessions are complementary and will meet on Tuesdays. See the schedule below for times and dates.

Each session will include a short talk and ample time for questions, discussion, and sharing. Barbara, our nutritionist and health coach, will lead most of the sessions with other staff members joining in on occasion. You can submit questions ahead of time through the portal or bring them with you to the virtual Zoom meetings. Questions are not limited to the topic of discussion. Join us as we support each other on this journey.
