What happens after you take a Functional Health Test?

When you order a Functional Health Test through me, I include an exclusive complimentary session to help you interpret, understand, and integrate the results of your test. This complimentary session does not, however, include treatment recommendations.

Beyond the Complimentary Session: Treatment Plans

After your complimentary session - when you thoroughly understand how the imbalances that may have showed up in your test results impact your health and well-being - you are probably going to want to do something about them. After all, why would you identify an imbalance and leave it untreated only to continually wreck havoc in your life?

The Four Rs

When get the results from a Functional Health Test (FHT), it highlights imbalances in the FUNCTIONING of one of your body’s core physiological systems - and rarely is that a medical problem - yet.

Functional Health Tests can reveal the imbalances in a body system BEFORE it gets to a disease or illness. When we treat the results of a FHT, our aim is to restore optimal functioning to your body and for the most part drugs are not needed to do that. Treating functional imbalances is different than treating symptoms, which is the purpose of drugs and the focus of medical doctors.

To restore optimal balance in a body system we use the 4 Rs as a guideline.

Remove - We Remove things that don’t belong – like pathogenic bacteria in the gut or overproduction of cortisol from the adrenals.

Replace - Then we Replace things that are missing like digestive enzymes or vitamins and minerals.

Restore - After that, we seek to Restore the beneficial support and natural functioning of that body system like using probiotic reseeding to restore the beneficial bacteria in the gut or the nutrients needed to produce adequate serotonin functioning in the brain.

Repair / Recuperate - The final step – which is the most important and the longest step – is to Repair / Recuperate the body system. By this stage, we have given a dysfunctional body system what it needs to begin to be a functional body system and we now work with supporting the body system in the critical elements needed to resume optimal functioning.

Whew!

That’s a lot different than taking a drug for 10 days – or for life! But of course, the results are a lot different too. Functional rebalancing can help prevent the 2 million deaths a year that are the result of environmental, behavioral, and lifestyle choices – and drugs don’t do that.

But in all honesty, treating the body system imbalances revealed by Functional Health Tests often takes a bit of work. It takes effort. It takes resources. It takes real change. It takes time. But … You get everything you give it back - and more! A Functional Health Test Treatment Plan can lead to a whole new level of health and wellness greater than you could hope to achieve by just treating symptoms, doing things haphazardly, and overlooking the necessity to restore optimal functioning to the core systems of the body.

Making It Easy To Take the Needed Step

When you get busy and life takes you in many directions it is easy (and almost inevitable) that you will forget or push to the side the need to restore optimal functioning to your body’s fundamental systems.

You have taken your Functional Health Test - I want to help you do what it takes to keep moving to actually create optimal health and wellness for you.

If you don’t treat the imbalances revealed by your test panels, they won’t just go away by themselves and optimal functioning return. Without appropriate and adequate treatment, the dysfunctions get driven deeper and deeper into the body’s functioning and your health and wellness get less and less support.

As part of my commitment to vibrant health and wellness, and to help you keep leveraging your inspired decision to take deep and effective care of yourself. I offer three types of Functional Health Test Treatment Programs.

I know that if you wait too long to properly take care of what is negatively impacting your health, you may never get around to doing it. I’ve seen it happen.

And that is a waste of good life energy.

Integrated Functional Health Successive Treatment Plans Program

When you do a Functional Health Test from me here is what it makes possible for you:

A complimentary Interpretation and Review Session to go over your test results and what they mean for you.

Then, many Functional Health Test results require successive Treatment Plans to implement the 4 Rs (Remove, Replace, Restore, and Repair/Recuperate). For example, most GI Health Panel test results require 6-12 Treatment Plans done in monthly succession to return the GI system to optimal functioning. Remember we are not just trying to get rid of a symptom that will only reappear somewhere else or just take a drug (that you may have to take for the rest of your life!) to try and mask the appearance of the symptom- or to medically control a symptom (that is what you need a medical physician for). We are working to restore optimal physiological functioning to your body – essential to deep healing.

How the Integrated Functional Health Successive Treatment Plans Program works:

We first meet on the phone for a Health, Wellness, and Well-being Consultation. We talk more in-depth about what is happening for you and get a detailed background on your health, wellness, and well-being. I ask you to forward to me any additional health and wellness lab and test results you might have and ask you to collect some additional information (e.g. a diet sheet, activity log, etc.).

Based on our consult, information from your Functional Health Test, plus any information you have provided, I design an overall approach for a series of Integrated Functional Health Treatment Plans for you that includes recommendations as appropriate in the areas of:

  • Herbs
  • Nutritional Supplements
  • Diet
  • Lifestyle Medicine
  • Exercise
  • Body Maintenance
  • Stress Management and Healing
  • Personal Foundations
  • Nature Centered Healing 
  • Energy Medicine 

Monthly over a period of 6-12 months you receive by email your current Functional Health Test Treatment Plan.

Throughout the month you keep in touch with me by email letting me know how you are doing, if you have any questions, or if anything else related to your Functional Health Test Treatment Plan arises. During your Functional Health Successive Treatment Plan Program, you get continuous email follow-up with me. I am only an email away from any question or concern you have.

We do Symptom Ratings and Assessments every two weeks to track your progress and to adjust and make changes in your Functional Health Treatment Plan as needed. By following you month by month each of your sucessive Functional Health Test Treatment Plans can accurately address your Functional Health and Wellness needs according to your responses and progress made.

The fee for Functional Health Successive Treatment Plan Program is $165 a month for each month in our Functional Health Successive Treatment Plan Program duration. (If we are working with multiple Functional Health Test Results the fee is greater depending on what we are working with.)

To get started on a Functional Health Successive Treatment Plan Program email me and we will talk about what is happening for you and the Personal Plan that will meet your needs.

Web of Healing Program for Functional Health Tests Results

For SOME Functional Health test results it is possible to get good outcomes with using a Web of Healing Program. I can design a comprehensive Web of Healing Program that addresses your Functional Health Test results and that you can implement on your own over a period of 3-6 months (depending on what is happening for you).

The Web of Healing Functional Health Test Program works similar to the Integrated Functional Health Successive Treatment Plan Program above - the distinction being that you will receive only one comprehensive Program instead of a series of successive treatment plans.

We first meet on the phone for a Health, Wellness, and Well-being Consultation. We talk more in-depth about what is happening for you and get a detailed background on your health, wellness, and well-being. I ask you to forward to me any additional health and wellness lab and test results you might have and ask you to collect some additional information (e.g. a diet sheet, activity log, etc.).

Based on our consult, information from your Functional Health tests, and any information you have provided, I design one Web of Healing Program for you that includes recommendations as appropriate in the areas of:

  • Herbs
  • Nutritional Supplements
  • Diet
  • Lifestyle Medicine
  • Exercise
  • Body Maintenance
  • Stress Management and Healing
  • Personal Foundations
  • Nature Centered Healing 
  • Energy Medicine 

Over a period of 3-6 months you implement this program.

Your Web of Healing Functional Health Test Program includes email follow up for the length of your Program to help you implement the Program. Throughout the month you keep in touch with me by email letting me know how you are doing, if you have any questions, or if anything else related to your Program arises. I am only an email away from any question or concern you have.

We do Symptom Ratings and Assessments every two weeks to track your progress and to see if adjustments are needed.

The fee for a Web of Healing Program for treatment of Functional Health Test Results starts at $325 - depending on the Functional Process being addressed. Split payment options are available.

To get started on a Web of Healing Program email me - and we will talk about what is happening for you and the Personal Plan that will meet your needs.

 

Vitamin D Test Program

Vitamin D results are treated with a special follow up plan. For your first Vitamin D test results I can design for you a Vitamin D Supplementation Restoration Plan for only $125. Depending on your Vitamin D levels you would implement this plan for 2 to 6 months and then re-test. If your Vitamin D levels are still not in the optimal range (50-80 ng/mL) we would do another Vitamin D Restoration Plan. The fee for follow-up Vitamin D Restoration Plans is $85 per plan.
