Your Initial Consult

In Three Steps

Step 1

Your Job: Get Your Blood Drawn

Step 1 involves you going to get your blood drawn at LabCorp. Once we collect your information, we will write the script for you to go to any draw station near you. Additionally, we will email you a link to fill out our intake information. Your job is also to fill this out. It's that simple.

Step 2

My Job: Construct Your Report of Findings

Based on the findings, I build your report which includes a functional blood chemistry analysis and pattern review. Essentially, I am summarizing imbalances in your blood chemistry to draw a conclusion of what's at the root of your health complaints.

Step 3

Together: We Meet & Go Over Your Results

We will hit the ground running at the time of our first official appointment. I will walk you through your test results, explain your report of findings and propose a treatment plan that will include therapeutic diet, lifestyle and nutrition suggestions.

Pattern

Analysis

The benefit of a process like  this offers us an objective way to identify and break the patterns at the root of your health conditions.  Making your patterns visible will help prioritize your treatment plan.  

We now know that many common chronic health conditions (and symptoms) can be traced back to the following patterns – otherwise referred to as the “usual suspects.”

  • Blood sugar imbalances
  • Low thyroid patterns
  • Inflammation
  • Estrogen dominance
  • Autoimmune antibodies
  • Liver detoxification issues
  • Gut toxicity
  • Fat malabsorption
  • Anemia
  • & others
Your functional blood chemistry pattern analysis will serve as your baseline and will offer us the opportunity to track the value of your treatment plan overtime. 

Make Your Patterns Visible

The way to recovery and remission is to identify and reveal the underlying root patterns that are getting in the way. When we disrupt these patterns, we will change your health story.

What is Functional Blood Chemistry?

There is no less expensive way to get a broad perspective on things that may be affecting your health. The lab testing brokerage companies make complete panels available for a cash price of about $285.00 on what would cost about $1500.00 if processed through insurance companies.

This group of tests can suggest the probability of many conditions, including various types of anemia, gut, viral and bacterial infections, liver and kidney issues, hypoglycemia, insulin resistance, diabetes, thyroid, adrenal problems and many more.

 

Blood Chemistry Panel

Proactive

Instead of the wait, watch, and react care model, functional medicine not only offers validation to your symptoms but also offers a preventative approach

It's about the range

When we appreciate functional ranges, we are looking at imbalances "upstream" as opposed to waiting for the diagnosis "downstream."

Here's the deal

We can't manage what we can't track. Health transformations start when we make our patterns visible. This gives us a clear path on addressing your concerns.

What to

Expect

Your Medical History

A Detailed Metabolic Assessment

It is more than likely that your symptoms speak to an imbalance in one of your core body systems.  I’m talking about your immune, nervous, hormone, digestive and detox systems.  We make this real by connecting your symptoms to your systems. 

A Summary of Underlying Patterns 

I’ve been reading blood chemistry from a functional perspective for over 20 years.  What that means is that I’ve had a lot of practice being able to reveal and identify patterns from shifts in blood chemistry that aren’t reported in conventional blood chemistry reporting.

A Personalized Treatment Plan

I offer a 360 degree approach to your care plan.   What you can expect is comprehensive solution that includes dietary, nutrition and lifestyle modifications, education (with an emphasis on education), tech tools for feedback verification, and follow-up evaluations.   My success is your success.  

Path #1: The Pre-Consult

Choose this path if you're not sure about FM or my approach and you wish to chat first. Not all potential clients who call our office are ready to get started right away - and that's okay. So we make it easy to take it one small step at a time. Feel free to click below to schedule a call. (20 minutes - & it's free)

Path #2: The Initial Consultation

Choose this path if you're sure you want a Functional Medicine expert to guide you on your journey and/or you were referred and simply want to get started right away. Click the link below to schedule and coordinate your blood test.

I'm glad you found me &

I'm happy you're here!

Not sure which path is right for you?  Connect with me and let me know what’s on your mind.  I answer these requests personally.  No annoying bots.

All of my consults are virtual, so you don’t need to leave your home (or state, or country) to see me.
