The inspiration behind our clinic

From 10 chronic conditions, spending $1000's and going to 50+ doctors, looking for answers... to finally healing my root causes with functional medicine, nutrition and lifestyle therapy...

Today, Dr. Lauryn and her team help patients worldwide address the root causes of their greatest health challenges with our simple 3 Step Method:

#1. Establish a Baseline

Lay a solid gut healing with foundation with the 7 essential “super powers” that must be in place for any Gut Reset to work, and naturally weed out stressors on your body. This step also includes the option for clinical and nutritional lab testing to help with customizing your blueprint.

#2. Customize Your Blueprint

Learn how to tailor your nutrition and supplementation strategies for your unique needs. Whether you have IBS, SIBO, leaky gut, chronic migraines, a sluggish metabolism, fatigue, or anything in between, customization is critical because there is no “one-size-fits-all” or Dr. Google answer to gut resetting.

#3. Heal Your Root

You. Optimized. Work your tailored health plan, created by your Care Team, and progressively work towards getting to the root causes behind your greatest health challenges.

What is functional medicine?

Functional Medicine is a holistic, patient-centered, collaborative approach to healthcare that focuses on helping patients get to the ROOT CAUSE of health issues and preventing chronic disease.

Ultimately, Functional Medicine is true HEALTH care. Not sick care.

Ironically, Functional Medicine is really not medicine at all. Instead of prescription drugs and disease management, functional medicine practitioners guide patients in implementing nutrition, lifestyle, environmental and mindset strategies as the primary tools for health optimization.

In a world where over 1 in 2 Americans have a chronic disease, Functional Medicine empowers and helps patients to take their health back into their own hands.

Conventional Healthcare Disease management Prescription drugs and 15-minute appointments Suppresses symptoms with medicine
Functional Medicine Aims to prevent disease Uses nutrition, lifestyle & natural solutions first as “medicine” Relieves symptoms by addressing the root cause

Investment

How much does this cost?

Our approach is comprehensive. It’s difficult to list an exact amount because different people will require differing amounts of care. However, Dr. Lauryn and her team strive to be cost-effective with our care. We will work with you to help estimate your individual costs and prioritize fees to fit your budget.

Appointment #1:
Heal Your Root Strategy

The cost for the initial strategy appointment is $295, and this fee will be included and deducted from whichever program path you choose.

Followup Appointments & Programs

Most clients plan to invest between $2995 to $9995 over the course of 2 to 12 months for comprehensive care and their health breakthrough(including: labs, supplements, appointments, therapy, coaching, nutritional therapy). Payment plans are available, and we will find the best program fit for your goals.

Lab Testing

Labs are included into your customized program. We realize this is one area where costs can quickly add up. However, we hope you will be relieved to hear that Dr. Lauryn and her team are able to obtain excellentresults with minimal lab testing. In most cases we may only require roughly $300 of testing, and in some cases no initial lab testing will be required.
