FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
If you’ve never visited a professional Functional Medicine Practitioner before, you’re bound to have lots of questions or concerns. Below, you’ll find a list of several frequently asked questions from my patients. Please feel free to contact me if your question isn't listed below.
WHERE DO I START?
The best way to start is to click on the START YOUR JOURNEY which will take you to an inquiry form. Once that is filled out, I will be in touch shortly after!
WHY SHOULD I LAB TEST?
If we don't have the lab testing, we are just guessing at what we should be doing. Lab testing will give me the data to supply you the best individualized plan based on your current health (deficiencies, imbalances, and pathogens) With that being said, I will NEVER recommend a test I don't absolutely need to give us the best possible information to get you the best possible results.
WILL I HAVE TO SUPPLEMENT FOREVER?
The supplements that are part of the protocols are meant to be short term. however, there will be a recommended baseline foundation tailored to your needs after you have completed your protocol to maintain your results.
DO YOU OFFER PAYMENT PLANS?
Payments can be broken down for the duration of months needed (usually 6) and that will all be discussed during your intake!
WHAT IS FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE?
Functional medicine is an alternative medicine approach which combines orthomolecular medicine, naturopathy, traditional chinese medicine, ayurveda,bioregulatory medicine and herbalism to create a bio-individual program addressing each client's own unique lifestyle, deficiencies, and imbalances which is discovered through functional medicine laboratory testing.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO REBALANCE YOUR BODY?
I require a six month program to start. This gives us time to address the lab findings, develop a personal program, and give it time to take effect in your body.
ARE WE DONE WORKING TOGETHER AFTER OUR INITIAL PROGRAM LENGTH?
Absolutely not! I offer monthly check in services for clients who have already been through their protocols and may need help to make sure their lifestyles and supplementation is on point for where they currently stand
WHAT ELSE WILL I GET BESIDES THE LAB TESTING?
My program will give you lifestyle recommendations based on your symptoms and lab indications. I will help you create the best possible diet for each point in your journey, as well as the type of movement that you should be doing with each check-in. I will also provide you ways that you can help your body detoxify so that you can not only aid your body with the initial protocols, but learn how to manage toxins for the rest of your life!
