If I am already a chiropractic patient, why do I need to have another consultation?
The nutrition consultation ($65) will consist of a medical history review, review of your systems, spinal scan (to detect spinal subluxations affecting your body function), and a wellness score report. The consultation will take a deep dive into your lifestyle (stress, sleep, exercise/movement) and nutritional habits.
The consultation will include a discussion of your nutritional goals, your health concerns, evaluation of your sleep habits, activity level, stress triggers, your relationship with food. You will then choose the best nutrition coaching plan that fits your lifestyle. All nutrition coaching plans are month-to-month.
Will I need to do blood work if I have recently completed labs with my medical doctor?
There are levels to blood chemistry analysis in functional nutrition. In most cases, general medical practioners order the first or second level of lab work analysis. Dr. Payne will be sure to review your most recent lab work to see how your body is functioning within optimal functional lab ranges (not just normal ranges).
Any new lab work (blood, hair, or saliva) will be an additional cost and is only included in certain nutrition membership plans. Payment plans are available for blood work and hair/saliva testing. We can provide a billing statement for your insurance.
