What is Functional Medicine?
Functional medicine health coaching is a type of health coaching that focuses on using a holistic, individualized approach to help clients improve their health and well-being. Functional medicine health coaches work with clients to identify and address the underlying causes of chronic health conditions and imbalances in the body, rather than just treating the symptoms.
Functional medicine health coaching is often used to help clients with chronic health conditions, such as autoimmune disorders, digestive issues, and hormonal imbalances. It can also be beneficial for clients who want to optimize their health and prevent future health issues.
How do I get started?
Take the first step towards improving your health and wellbeing today by scheduling a Health Advocacy Session with us. During this in-depth session, you will have the opportunity to discuss your health concerns and goals with a trained functional medicine practitioner. We will listen attentively to your needs and provide actionable ways to improve your health from the very first session. This is the first step in creating a personalized Wellness By Design™️ plan that is tailored to your unique needs.
If you are unsure whether functional medicine is right for you, we encourage you to complete our self-assessment questionnaire to get a better understanding of your health and how we can help.
What is the cost of Wellness By Design?
First, we start with a single in-depth Health Advocacy Session. If we both decide that working together will help you achieve your health goals, then you’ll be enrolled in our Wellness By Design. A four (4) month commitment is required and includes preferred pricing on functional medicine testing and supplements. Sessions are typically 45 minutes, except the initial session which is at least 90 minutes.
Wellness By Design is intended for individuals who desire a personalized, one-to-one, dedicated support. There are two tiers of support for you to choose from:
- Level One: Two sessions/month for four months – $199.00 per month ($796.00 total)
- Level Two: Four sessions/month for four months – $349.00 per month ($1,396 total)
How do Wellness By Design sessions work?
As our client, you can expect to receive personalized and consistent care during our regular video chat sessions. These sessions are typically 30-45 minutes long and take place at a dedicated day and time slot. During these sessions, we will assess your progress, identify any obstacles, and work together to set achievable goals that will help you move closer to your health goals.
Once you have become an established client, you will have access to my personal cell number for anytime support, as well as 24/7 access to your health portal, where you can view your assessments, notes, records, plans, and protocols.
Are specialty tests included?
Functional testing is an important part of functional medicine because it provides a detailed and comprehensive understanding of your health. These tests go beyond traditional diagnostic methods to provide insight into the underlying causes of health concerns, rather than simply identifying symptoms.
As a client of ours, you may be offered or recommended certain functional tests as part of your personalized health coaching plan. These tests can help us gain a deeper understanding of your health and develop a treatment plan that addresses the root cause of your concerns. By providing a more holistic view of your health, functional testing can help us provide more effective and personalized care.
Functional testing includes tests which assess:
- food and environmental sensitivities
- advanced hormone testing
- cortisol awakening response
- gastrointestinal and microbiome health
- organic acids (for gut health and neurotransmitter levels)
- heavy metals (for toxicity and nutrient levels)
- cellular nutrition
- blood chemistry
Can I use my HSA card?
Yes! We can provide you with a super bill/invoice for your records. My NPI number is 1952815441 and I am registered as a Health Educator.
Are supplements included?
As our valued client, you will have access to exclusive discounts and preferred pricing on professional-grade supplements and other healthcare products through our affiliated dispensaries. This benefit is available at no additional cost to you, and it will continue even after you have completed your personalized health coaching plan.
Having access to these high-quality products can help you to achieve your health goals more effectively and efficiently. Our practitioners are trained to recommend the best products for your specific needs, and with our exclusive discounts, you can be confident that you are getting the best value for your money. This is just one more way that we are committed to supporting you on your journey towards improved health and well-being.
Do you provide primary care?
It is important to note that health coaching is not a replacement for medical care, and it is not intended to provide diagnosis or treatment. We strongly encourage all of our clients to maintain their relationship with their primary care physician and to seek medical advice and treatment as needed.
Health coaching is a complementary approach to healthcare that focuses on identifying and addressing the underlying causes of health concerns, rather than simply treating symptoms. Our goal is to work with you and your primary care physician to provide a more holistic and personalized approach to healthcare. By maintaining a relationship with your primary care physician, you can ensure that you are receiving the best possible care for your individual needs.
