Dr. Winter Explains Why Functional Medicine in The Hill Country, TX, is Such a Popular Approach

Dr. Cheryl Winter has recorded a video to explain the difference between conventional medicine and functional medicine and why Functional Medicine is the only way we can truly claim our health. You can also read Dr. Winter's blog post, "How is Functional Medicine Different from Conventional Medicine?"

Can Functional Medicine Relieve My Symptoms?

When first learning about functional medicine, many people wonder if this approach is right for them. As it turns out, functional medicine can apply to any chronic or lifestyle-related condition. The goal is to uncover the root cause of symptoms, which applies to 90% of conditions. 

Let’s explore a few common conditions that respond well to functional medicine.

Digestive Issues

Do you suffer from bloating, constipation, and cramps? Has your doctor told you that you have vitamin deficiencies? These issues can be addressed by functional medicine in The Hill Country, TX. Dr. Cheryl Winter uses a combination of nutrition, lifestyle coaching, and advanced technology to reset your gut and make sure your body flourishes with every meal you eat.

Diabetes & Hormone Imbalances

Diabetes is a devastating disease that can be reversed. Conventional medicine takes a “management” approach, but you don’t have to limit yourself to constant blood sugar readings. Work with Dr. Winter and discover just how powerful hormone therapy can be. Functional medicine is also effective in cases of thyroid, adrenal, testosterone, and estrogen imbalances.

Autoimmune Diseases

When the body attacks itself (the definition of an autoimmune disease), it’s trying to tell us that something is wrong. Anti-inflammatory medications might reduce discomfort, but they won’t address the underlying root cause of the autoimmune disease. Functional medicine in The Hill Country, TX, can help restore your immune system and relieve you of conditions that can trigger unwanted responses.

Mystery Illnesses

Do you feel bad constantly? Fatigue, aches, anxiety, etc.? Many doctors don’t take the time to figure out what’s causing these symptoms. But functional medicine will. Don’t normalize low quality of life. Find answers right here in The Hill Country.

Who Do We Serve?

We serve children, adolescents and adults. Other services we specialize in include specialized laboratory testing, diabetes reversal, weight loss, hormone balancing, nutrigenomics and nutrition counseling.

We are not a primary care clinic or drop-in healthcare facility and do not treat urgent conditions, but many of these situations can be avoided with our interventions. We do not practice band-aid medicine, therefore, expect to spend no less than one hour with us at your initial visit so that we can fully understand your health concerns and struggles.

Does Dr. Winter Take Insurance?

Since we do not practice band-aid medicine, insurance companies do not pay for all of our services. It’s not that we refuse to accept insurance, it’s that insurance companies refuse to accept us. Insurance companies restrict what we can do, so that limits your ability to truly

achieve health and wellness. But because we are working for you (not the insurance company), there are no restrictions in what can be achieved. You will actually get so much more for your time and money by working with Dr. Cheryl (an integrative practitioner), since our time is no longer wasted following insurance company rules and hiring additional support staff to file insurance claims.


When insurance pays for conventional services, one way or the other you really are the one that ends up paying for the services (or lack of). However, in our practice, you will actually receive services that far exceed those received through third-party reimbursement. BUT, the best part is, you can actually GET Healed Naturally and potentially avoid the repeated back and forth trips to conventional healthcare providers offices and avoid the overall rigors of being a number and repeat customer in this very sick conventional healthcare system.


However, saying all that, if you do have health insurance, you may be able to get reimbursed when you submit our superbill. That’s right! The cost of our services is cheaper than what meets the eye, so don’t let the cost stop you!
