Are labs & hormone tests price included in the programs?
No, since most insurance plans reimburse patients directly.
How long does it take to naturally balance my hormones?
This really varies depending on the person and whether there has been prolonged stress, poor diet, and long-term use of synthetic hormones either in birth control or hormone replacement (HRT). The extent to which specific hormones identified through testing are, and have been, out of balance, is the key determinant - it generally takes at least 4 weeks to 3 months to experience relief of symptoms and improved hormone levels. Depending on root cause of symptoms and which program is chosen, some clients see improvement as in as little as 2-3 weeks.
Can you prescribe medication?
For local clients, yes; doctors can prescribe medication as needed based on current findings. For remote clients, we can make suggestions based on your symptoms and lab results, and you can discuss with your healthcare provider if this is something they would be willing to prescribe. We educate you about different options available to improve your health and teach you how to be your own health advocate.
