Before your Initial Consultation, we'll arrange for the following lab tests to be conducted either in the comfort of your home or at a nearby blood draw facility:

Comprehensive Blood Chemistry

The most efficient and effective tool for assessing your overall health status, it screens for cardiac health, hidden inflammation, insulin resistance, and hypoglycemia.

🔎 Lipids
🔎 Apolipoproteins
🔎 Inflammation
🔎 Glycemic Control
🔎 Full Thyroid Panel


Core Nutrient Framework

This test evaluates overall nutritional status and identifies key deficiencies and insufficiencies of over 40 different essential micronutrients vital to health and function. It maps out personalized supplementation needs for antioxidants, B-vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, amino acids, digestive support, and other select nutrients.

🔎 Micronutrients and Vitamin Markers
🔎 Essential Amino Acids
🔎 Mitocondrial Function
🔎 Metabolism Efficiency
🔎 Toxic Exposure
🔎 Neurotransmitter Metabolites
🔎 Fatty Acid Imbalances
🔎 Select Genomics Biomarkers

Urinary Hormones, Adrenals and Metabolites


Comprehensive assessment of sex and adrenal hormones.


Gut Microbiome and Gut Health

 

The gut microbiome test stands as one of the most comprehensive options for clinicians, covering over 170 species and genus-level measurements, along with phylum assessments and two diversity indexes.

 

Furthermore, I offer recommendations for 35 commonly used probiotic products tailored to your specific risks identified through lab test results.

Utilizing Vibrant's proprietary microchip technology, we enable simultaneous detection of DNA from nearly 200 species and genera of microorganisms from just one stool sample collection.


🔎 Bacteria
🔎 Pathogens
🔎 Parasites
🔎 Fungi
🔎 Viruses
🔎 Antibiotic Resistant Genes
🔎 Inflammatory Markers
🔎 Digestive Insufficiency
🔎 Fecal Markers
🔎 Heavy Metals


Add-on Lab Testing:

🧪 DUTCH Advance Hormones and Adrenal Testing
Analyses of 35 different hormones.

🧪 Genetics Test
Genetics make up the baseline "code" by which your body functions. The impact of every single choice you make throughout your life is influenced by your personal genetic makeup. This panel tests over 130 genes that can affect your metabolism, inflammation, detoxification, fitness, weight, hormones, cognition, and response to your diet and supplements.

🧪 Mycotoxins
The urine-based assay targets 31 of the most prevalent mycotoxins generated by molds commonly encountered by humans. Employing mass spectrometry, we leverage Vibrant's patent-pending proprietary technology to deliver precise and clinically significant evaluations of elusive toxins known to induce severe illness in humans. With the capability to detect mycotoxins as small as 5 pcg, this advanced methodology significantly enhances the spectrum of detectable mycotoxins.

🧪 Environmental Toxins
 
Environmental toxins, also known as toxicants, encompass substances originating both internally within the human body and externally from the environment. These compounds, upon absorption, inhalation, or ingestion, can induce acute or chronic toxic overload, impacting various biological systems at the organ, tissue, and cellular levels.

Ranging from cancer-causing chemicals to endocrine disruptors, environmental toxins comprise both synthetic and naturally occurring substances. Utilizing cutting-edge mass spectrometry techniques, the Vibrant Environmental Toxin Panel evaluates 39 distinct markers within a single urine specimen, providing comprehensive insights into environmental toxin exposure.


🧪 Autoimmune Predictive Panel

This panel measures Predictive Antibodies, some of which can emerge up to 10 years before the first appearance of the disease. It efficiently asses possible tissue damage to multiple organs in the body.

This screen test is recommended for people that have already been diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder as they commonly develop additional autoimmune conditions, people with increased intestinal damage (leaky gut) and people that are in the autoimmune spectrum.

All the aforementioned labs are encompassed within the Case Review.  However, depending on individual health concerns or objectives, supplementary labs may be required, incurring an extra charge.

After the labs have been ordered and you've completed the new-client paperwork (which will be emailed to you upon sign-up), you will proceed to Step 2: The Initial Consultation.

In this 60-minute virtual consultation, we will delve deeper into your main concerns, medical history, and the objectives you aim to achieve through coaching. Together, we'll craft your personalized nutrition plan and discuss any lifestyle or mindset goals you wish to pursue.

 

This appointment serves two key purposes: to ensure we have all the necessary information to grasp your health status comprehensively and to kick start your journey toward your goals.

 

We'll also finalize the specific lab tests to be ordered.

The Case Review consultation spans 75 minutes and is conducted virtually, usually scheduled 30 days post the initial appointment. Ahead of this session, I'll meticulously examine the results from the ordered labs, coupled with insights gleaned from the initial appointment and your new client forms.

Utilizing this comprehensive data, I will provide:

  • A concise overview of the underlying patterns contributing to your symptoms.

  • An outlined treatment plan encompassing dietary, supplement, and lifestyle recommendations.

  • Recommendations for additional testing, if deemed necessary (though typically minimal due to the thoroughness of the Case Review process).

 

During the consultation, I will present you with a tailored treatment plan for the remaining 3 months of coaching and address any queries you may have.

Ready to take the first step to change your life and become the person you always wanted to be?

How can I prepare for my first coaching call?
 

Before your initial consultation, you will receive comprehensive paperwork via an online private portal. This paperwork covers your health history, goals, lifestyle habits, and relevant medical information. I kindly ask for this information to be returned 24 hours prior to your appointment. This allows me ample time to review and craft your personalized plan.
 

Is financing available?

Yes! With rates as low as 0% APR for the first 14 months, you can now finance your program if you choose.

 


What payments methods do you accept?

I accept HSA/Flex spending credit, debit, and bank wire. If you do have insurance, I can also give you a receipt for an attempt for reimbursement with your insurance provider. Most of my clients have had a lot of success with this.


 

Why aren't Functional Nutrition and Functional Testing covered by insurance?
 

Traditional insurance-based medicine typically follows a standardized protocol, operating on diagnosing and treating specific ailments with medications or procedures. However, Functional Medicine delves deeper, aiming to uncover the root cause of health imbalances or diseases. This approach is different because it considers the interconnectedness of all body systems, along with lifestyle, diet, and mental health. Consequently, the traditional diagnosis-to-medication model doesn't align with the comprehensive and personalized nature of Functional Medicine.
 

Furthermore, Functional Medicine practitioners invest significant time with each patient, both during consultations and in research afterward, to understand the unique complexities of their case. This often involves utilizing advanced testing methods and crafting individualized treatment plans that incorporate natural therapies and tailored dietary recommendations. While this personalized approach offers invaluable benefits such as enhanced accountability and 1-1 relationships between coaches and clients, it isn't typically covered by insurance.
 

Although Functional Lab Testing may require an initial investment, it's important to recognize it as an investment in your long-term health and well-being. By addressing the underlying causes of health issues and making lifestyle changes, individuals often experience lasting improvements in their health, ultimately saving time, energy, and even money in the long run.


Are supplements and additional Functional Testing included in the program?

Supplements and lab re-testing entail additional costs. The supplement protocols are designed and tailored to your specific goals, imbalances, and root causes identified through your lab testing. As each individual's needs vary, it's challenging to determine the exact supplements and quantities required in advance. Additionally, many clients choose to continue with core maintenance supplements beyond their coaching period.

Lab testing reruns are not included in the initial package. Some individuals may not require retesting, while others may only need to rerun specific markers that showed abnormalities. By customizing the testing based on your evolving needs, we optimize the value of your investment while ensuring you receive the most relevant and beneficial assessments. This tailored approach ultimately saves you money by avoiding unnecessary testing.


Do you offer fitness plans?

I do offer workouts plans since fitness is a huge part of this process and the lives of many of my clients to aid in the total body transformation. But I focus on fixing what's off internally first, so you can get better results from your workout plans and exercise.
