Consultation (90 min)
During your personal health consultation, we will cover:
- Full health history and family history
- Current symptoms and concerns
- Your health goals
- Current lifestyle, dietary habits and stress levels
- Recent laboratory test results
- Initial recommendations
We will also discuss appropriate laboratory testing if required. Some testing kits can be obtained at our meeting for you to take home and most testing samples can be collected in the comfort of your own home. Other laboratory tests may be requested from your physician, and we will make a recommendation for your physician to review.
Follow Up (30 min)
Our consultation can address a variety of issues including: Hormone balancing for women and men, menopausal issues, chronic fatigue, stress management, weight management, pre-diabetes or Type 2 diabetes, nutritional support, comprehensive drug review, pain/inflammation issues, thyroid/adrenal issues, anti-aging, cosmeceuticals, and more.
During your initial personal consultation, you will meet privately with a health consultant pharmacist to discuss your concerns, your history, and your current environment. We will develop a personal, comprehensive health and wellness plan that supports your entire metabolic function, not just one disease.
Since we practice Functional Medicine, our recommendations consider both conventional and complementary therapies and may include prescriptions, natural health products, nutrition, and lifestyle.
Functional medicine restores health by determining how and why illnesses occur and addressing the root causes of disease for each individual. This paradigm of medicine is systems-oriented, patient-focused, and evidence based.
Rather than focusing solely on one specific malfunctioning organ, functional medicine examines the whole body and outside factors that are causing illness. This approach empowers you to work closely with your practitioners towards health and wellness.
Some examples of functional laboratory tests we regularly use:
- Full hormonal assessment including cortisol levels, hormone metabolites, neurotransmitter metabolites and oxidative stress markers (DUTCH)
- Adrenal Stress Test- cortisol and melatonin
Intestinal Permeability (leaky gut)
- Digestive Stool Analysis
- Gut Flora testing
- Food intolerance testing
- Neurotransmitter testing
- Genetic SNP testing and reports
