Optimal Wellness ProgramMaximize your health while safeguarding your future.
Not everyone’s needs are the same. Some patients are pursuing health. Others already are healthy but want to use the most up-to-date evaluations to safeguard their future. This program is for them. Our Optimal Wellness Program applies the same tools we use from a Functional & Integrative Medicine approach to proactively maximize our members’ function and health.
Understanding & Anticipating Disease
You are not merely a complicated machine but a complex interwoven individual. In fact, your body is the most complex and interconnected organism known to mankind.
The Space Shuttle is a complicated machine. It requires many people, parts and systems to function and work. Yet a single misstep can cause the whole system to crash. In 1986 a simple frozen O-ring due to unusually cold conditions resulted in the Challenger’s explosion. Your body is vastly different. Your interconnected systems have an unknown number of interconnections and redundancies. This means that if a glitch arises, another system kicks in and if another mishap occurs, another system steps in. We now know that Alzheimer Disease cellular changes occur up to 20 years prior to the diagnosis of disease. Cardiovascular disease pathological finding on your arteries can be found to begin in the late teens even though disease diagnosis may not occur for 30 more years. Colon cancer has a ten-year window for development and we now know autoimmune antibodies for most Hypothyroidism can be found 10 years prior to disease diagnosis.
In our Optimal Wellness Program, we use all the tools at our disposal to screen and diagnosis disease early in order to maximize your health and wellness. This is the true preventative evaluation.
The purpose of our Optimal Wellness Program is to provide a Functional and Integrative Medicine approach to maximizing the health of those who aren’t chronically ill and so don’t feel the need to commit to a yearlong membership, Yet desire a thorough evaluation of their health in order to prevent disease. This is true Preventative Health Care. In the Optimal Wellness Program we will individualize and customize a treatment plan for the patient using all the tools at our disposal. This program ideal for high performance athletes, executives, business owners or anyone who sees their health as the single best investment that they can make.

Currently that is $690 plus $120/month for 3 months. All standard of care services and covered services will be billed to your insurance and all services over and above the standard of care will be covered by your membership induction fee plus one month membership fee. At your 4-6 week follow up visit to review all your information, and will plan one last follow up after the initial of your health plan. You can let us know at any time if you choose to change to an annual membership or only want the initial consultation service. This will most likely depend on the results of your evaluation.
