Five Journeys family–we have the best news for you!

We’re offering the Galleri Multi-Cancer Early Detection Test, a new method of early cancer detection.

Early cancer detection and diagnosis plays a critical role in the longevity of any person. By making the Galleri test available at Five Journeys, we are staying on the cusp of the latest advances in technology. Combined with other pillars of functional medicine, Galleri test can be a powerful tool in enabling adults over 50 to live a long and vibrant life.

Let’s break down the Galleri test and share how we’re going to integrate it into our functional medicine practice.

What is the Galleri Test?

The Galleri Test has emerged as a new and special method for detecting cancer early on in the body. Using a patient’s blood sample, the Galleri test identifies more than 50 types of cancer in adults over 50. 

Many people find out about cancer when they start developing symptoms. By this time, the cancer is more aggressive and developed, making it harder to effectively treat.

Thanks to the Galleri test, doctors can identify cancer long before symptoms start to develop and begin treatment much earlier. 

The Galleri test isn’t meant to replace other means of finding and treating cancer; it simply pairs well with current traditional and functional approaches to cancer. 

How Does the Galleri Test Work?

The Galleri test identifies over 50 types of cancer using an artificial intelligence analysis of the patient’s DNA. It detects possible cancer patterns and signals in cells and tissue. 

Here are some other features of the Galleri test:

  • Requiring a simple blood test
  • Detecting cancers that aren’t commonly screened for
  • Identifying the specific area of cancer

We hope to see an increase in effective treatment and eradication of cancer thanks to the Galleri test!

How Does Five Journeys Utilize the Galleri Test for?

Five Journeys has been offering the Galleri Test to our patients in Newton, MA for two years! Adequate testing is one of our personal pillars as functional medicine providers, so we’re thrilled to offer this to our patients. 

At Five Journeys, we approach healthcare through a functional and holistic lens. This means we don’t stop at treating the symptoms of a health issue. Instead, we dig deeper and discover what’s causing those symptoms in the first place.

We help patients achieve peak wellness by utilizing nutrition, stress relief, spiritual health, detoxification, gut health, and more. When it comes to treating and preventing cancer, we use this approach but work even closer with our patients to evaluate their needs and find treatment that works best for them. 

A Functional Approach to Cancer

We hope you’re just as excited about this news as we are! The entire Five Journeys team looks forward to supporting our patients on a deeper level thanks to these developments in technology. 

Five Journeys helps patients in their relentless pursuit of vitality through a functional, holistic approach to medicine. We treat each patient individually and take time to get to know them deeply.
