First Appointment:
Your first appointment is an Evaluation.  At that time determinations are made, recommendations are suggested, and labs are ordered.  For your convenience, labs are conducted in the privacy of your own home through urine, hair, or saliva analysis.  Labs are completed 5-7 business days after the sample is received.  At the end of your first appointment, it is recommended to begin a starter vitamin pack.  These packets are designed to elevate general nutritional deficiencies.  Moreover, they prepare the body for your individualized program.   

Second AppointmentIn consideration of labs, your second appointment is usually scheduled 2-3 weeks after your first appointment.  During this appointment, your individualized nutritional program, which is aimed to re-calibrate biochemical imbalances, is discussed.  If agreed, you normally begin the program 3-5 days later.
