What can I expect during my first visit?
During your first consultation, our physicians will discuss your intake forms, major health complaints, health goals, and strategies to get you back on track with your health. You can expect your initial consultation to take 15 to 30 minutes.
How does pricing work? Do you accept insurance?
We accept most major insurance providers, however pricing for care packages depends solely on the individual and what he or she needs. You will be reimbursed for any treatment that is covered by your insurance. We unfortunately are unable to accept public aid.
Why do I need to purchase organic food during my treatment plan?
It is important to consume organic foods in order to avoid GMOs, pesticides, heavy metals, herbicides, chemical additives, preservatives, and fungicides. These are harmful chemicals that cause inflammation in the body, disrupt hormones, and disturb the gut flora making it difficult for your body to digest food and absorb nutrients properly. Eating conventional and processed foods may inhibit your detoxification process by overstressing the liver and kidneys that are constantly working to rid your body of toxins.
Why is it necessary to include vitamins and mineral supplements in my treatment? Can't I get enough nutrients from food?
While it is necessary to buy organic, organic food is not what it used to be and does not have the necessary amount of vitamins and minerals you need to get healthy. Industrialized farming has deminerlized and depleted the soil. We offer only the highest quality nutritional supplements tested with state-of-the-art technology to ensure that you get ALL of the essential vitamins and nutrients your body needs to heal. Many illnesses will not allow the body to properly assimilate nutrients from food because of inflammation in the GI tract. We provide lab tests to assess any deficiencies that need to be addressed.
