Hi! If you're interested in a checkup from me, there are three options:

  1. See me in person at my office in Gainesville, Florida.
  2. Come to one of my husband's amazing healing retreats in Costa Rica, and take advantage of the handful of visits I offer there.
  3. Schedule a long-distance consultation (scroll down for more information.)

I look forward to working with you!

long distance consultations

Initially it is always best to have the initial consultation in person, as Chinese medicine  uses all five senses in order to diagnose, but it is not necessary if it is not at all  possible for you to travel to do this. That's why I have implemented long distance video consultation via a secure program.

After you have scheduled a long distance consultation, you will need to send any current lab work you have available, along with a couple of forms that we'll send to you, and a short description of your current ailments to me via e-mail at least 24 hours before your consultation. This allows me to ask questions specifically formulated for your case to get to the core issues of your health.  

After your consultation, I will write up a Report of Findings, where we will map out your plan of care. This usually includes potential treatments, supplements, lab work, lifestyle and dietary counseling, and genetic testing.
 


Visits

We understand that both money and time are in short commodity, but sometimes visits are necessary. It is not uncommon for some long distance patients to plan intensive appointments with me several times a year to supplement the care plan, or for an opportunity to have specialized issues addressed.  

supplements

In my report, I will provide you with the supplements/herbs I feels best suits your precise health issues. I will either explain to you how you can find these on your own, at a physician nearer to you, or have them direct shipped from companies we deeply trust.

 

Lab work

Not only will I look at your current labs (if they are available), but I might also have to dig a little bit deeper to find the root of the issue. I will often have to request labs that other practitioners have looked over. This can include vitamin panels, homocysteine, full thyroid panels, viral testing, and tests for intestinal permeability.
 

Genetic testing

I offers genetic analysis through 23andme and Nutrahacker. This allows me to see if you have any genetic mutations that can cause your body to not functional properly. These mutations would be otherwise missed in any other kinds of test you may have taken in the past. Some of you may have had the MTHFR gene snp tested, but not the 30+ other genes that could also correlate to your complaints. I spend a lot of time creating a report of findings and plan of care to help you with these issues.
