'TWO PART' COMPREHENSIVE  NUTRIGENOMIC  CONSULT  $525.00

I have added  a 'Two Part Comprehensive Nutrigenomic Consult' because you have been asking me for more time and there is too much information for us to discuss in one consultation!  It's similar to #1 Comprehensive Nutrigenomic Consultation, except it includes a 2nd consult whereby we review what is working and what isn't, and with our newfound discoveries, then we make adjustments and put together a 'next phase' plan including Methylation, if appropriate.  The first consult is 2 hours and I review your health questionnaire, symptomatology, labs, and genetics.  I teach you about food choices for your genetic make-up, a 'bio-individual' supplementation program, and detoxification methodologies and epigenetic awareness.  The 2nd consult is one hour and includes the next phase of your plan and Methylation (as mentioned above, if appropriate.)  Plus, this consult structure saves you money!


We use a Functional Medicine/Nutritional approach whereby we look for the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented methodology and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. Functional Medicine/Nutrition, accompanied by genetics, is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century. We start this process by taking a very detailed health history, test results, prior treatments and failed treatments and the applicable variant reports, etc.


I like to ensure a healthy GI function and any needed detoxification before we address methylation or other biochemical pathways, so your protocol may address GI issues in the early phase. Your GUT Microbiome is critically important. Foundational health practices and good nutrition will also be addressed early on. We look at the probability of leaky gut, leaky cells, leaky brain and mitochondrial dysfunction, while we focus on 'cell danger response' (Dr. Naviaux.) When your cell membranes become increasingly healthy, then you will become healthy, and we will then begin the next stage of your recovery.


We also review 'epigenetics' and how it applies to you and your lifestyle. Why? Recent research by Alessio Fascano, MD, suggests that besides influencing many systems of the body (e.g., immune system, neurotransmitters, etc.) our gut microbiome may exert influence on our genome, via epigenetics. This is connected to our dietary choices and environmental exposures as they dynamically influence our gut microbiome composition.


We'll be concentrating on the 5 R's of recovery:


REMOVE STRESSORS

REPLACE

REINOCULATE

REPAIR

REBALANCE


In addition to food and supplements, we will be addressing the following fundamentals of optimal health:

FOOD and WATER

GENETICS

GUT​ HEALTH

HORMONES

ACIDITY and ALKALINITY

ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS

HEAVY METALS

DENTAL DISTURBANCE

EXPOSURE TO BACTERIA/VIRUSES/FUNGUSES

ELECTROMAGNETIC DISTURBANCES

EMOTIONAL TRAUMA

STRESS

AGING


Without fundamental changes in these root causes, there can be no real healing. Restoring the body with functional medicine is done through detoxification, rebuilding the digestive system, strengthening the immune system and alkalizing your body through diet, to support the proper pH, one of the most important foundations of health.


As we proceed, I will be reviewing your SNPs and plotting them on your biochemical pathways to see where the roadblocks may occur and determine next steps. Why? Having a SNP doesn't necessarily mean it's expressing in its associated enzyme/protein, so it's best if I can align health issues, potential triggers, and determine how they relate to your particular SNP expression and with family health history.


In addition, we all have inherited 'loss of function' genetic mutations, in conjunction with environmental influences, that have caused us to become ill, and now we can participate in our own early intervention and/or prevention. It’s an investigative process which takes time, patience, and compliance. Each and every one of you is unique. Think of it as peeling back the many layers of an onion. I believe in customizing your treatment plan specifically for your individuality, optimizing your health, and extending years to your life.


Remember: genes are not your destiny, but they can help you 'see tendencies' that may lead to a predisposition to various health conditions. Early detection leads to intervention and prevention.


FACT

65 genes are turned on with gluten and cause inflammation

72 genes are turned off with a Paleo Diet

Over 1,100 hundred genes in the GUT are triggered by inflammation!


I will spend a total of 7-8 hours with each initial consultation (preparation for 3-4 hours, consulting/educating for 2 hours and 1-2 hours preparing your bio-individualized plan.) I will email your initial ‘bio-individualized treatment plan’ and suggestions including dietary modifications, links to educational articles/websites, nutrients and/or supplements, and additional testing, only if applicable. Then, we will schedule follow-up consults depending on your specific needs, every 6 to 8 weeks. Please call or email and set up an appointment for a free 15 minute consult.
