Ready To...

Get Your Life Back?

Don’t let your symptoms get the best of you and rob you of your energy. We have specialized programs that handle the exact  wellness challenges you are experiencing, so you can get your life back!

Does This Sound Like You?

  • Brain fog slows you down and destroys productivity on the job.
  • Fatigue or exhaustion turns basic tasks like laundry and food shopping into grueling chores
  • With so little energy, hobbies become a luxury you can’t afford.
  • Socializing and recreational activities feel impossible under the burden of extra weight.

Do you feel like you are constantly on edge, tired all the time and puffy all over? 

Have you noticed a definitely dip in your sex drive and have had an especially hard time loosing weight despite adding in more cardio, and decreasing calories?

Do feel like you’ve literally “tried everything” only to be told that “everything is ok” and “your tests have come back fine?”

Perhaps you’ve even been prescribed sleeping pills or anti-anxiety medicine because your primary care physician thinks it’s all in your head or an emotional imbalance?

We see this all the time – people just like you who have been from doctor to doctor… yet not getting the answers why they aren’t feeling right.

And we want you to know that healing is possible… and your symptoms aren’t “all in your head” or “normal”.

When you partner with the right provider who knows how to prescribe the right testing and program to  pinpoint your specific imbalances, the solution becomes clear!

Oftentimes when people come into our clinic they “feel off” and they don’t know why. And it turns out that the answer isn’t cut and dry, it’s typically a mix of factors from hormone and gut imbalances, being overburdened with toxins, and nutritional deficiencies.

And rather than matching symptoms with a diagnosis, we do an in-depth evaluation and advanced lab testing will give us a much more complete picture of what triggered your specific imbalances that caused your symptoms in the first place.

 

 

This is how we’ve created a variety of packages to address what we see, time and time again, in our clinic. Our comprehensive treatment plans incorporate specialized hormone and gut testing, along with lifestyle modifications, nutritional & mindset coaching and bio-identical hormones where needed to get you back on track and feeling like your most energized self. Her are a just some of the conditions we treat in our packages:

  • Hormonal Imbalances (Feeling “tired & wired”, Hypothyroidism, Hyperthyroidism, PCOS, PMS, Hot Flashes, Painful Periods, Mood Swings and Hair Loss
  • Digestive Disorders (GERD, heartburn, IBS, SIBO, and Leaky Gut
  • Sexual Health For Women and Men (Urinary Leakage, Vaginal Laxity, Erectile Dysfunction, Peyronie’s Disease , and other issues with sexual performance)
  • Metabolic Syndrome, Obesity & Dyslipidemia
  • Energy Issues Stress   (Chronic Fatigue or Low Energy, Adrenal Issues, Sleep Problems, and Blood Sugar Issues)
  • Cognitive Issues (SCI/MCI, “Brain Fog”, Memory Issues, and Anxiety)

Why Partner With A Functional Medicine Practitioner?

Our approach is different. 

Our goal is to help you get well (and often get off your prescription medicines) so you can love the way you feel!  

We do this by addressing the root cause of your symptoms, instead of just treating diseases with drugs (which often just put a bandaid on your symptoms).  

We start by taking the time to learn about all the details of how you are feeling, instead of taking 5 minutes to focus on 1 symptom (like a dermatologist who only focuses on your skin rash, or a neurologist who only focuses on your migraines).  

Using advanced lab tests,   we evaluate for obstacles that are standing in the way of your health including things like hormone imbalances, nutritional deficiencies and inflammation that can be addressed to help prevent future disease. 

A personalized plan will be created just for you, to help remove the things that are making you sick (like toxins or inflammation) and replace the things you need to get well (like vitamins or probiotics).  

You’ll find out which supplements you need (and which ones you don’t!)  

To ensure your success, our team will support you,  including health coaching if you need it.  We act as your mentor to help you establish healthier lifestyle habits so you can thrive for life!

This may be all you’ll need to get back to feeling like yourself again, but sometimes adding hormone replacement can help.  We only use bio-identical hormones, not synthetic drugs.  For more information on bioidentical hormones and our approach to hormone replacement, click here.

Listen To What Our Patients Have To Say

Our Wellness Programs

Designed to restore your health

The Revitalize Wellness Program is for people who suffer with chronic, complicated health issues like severe fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and autoimmune conditions, who need more intensive interventions and support. It’s for people who have searched for help and tried different things, but are looking for a comprehensive approach.

This intensive 12 month program is for people who are tired, overwhelmed and looking for a team to help them navigate their way back to health.

Designed to get you back to feeling like you.

The Optimal Wellness Program is for people who have struggled unsuccessfully to lose weight. It’s for people with chronic medical issues that, with proper treatment, could be controlled, such as high blood pressure, fibromyalgia, and high cholesterol. It’s for people who simply don’t feel like themselves anymore due to low libido, low energy levels, or a myriad of symptoms that arise when the body is not functioning optimally.

This unique, 6 month program is designed specifically for people ready to make big changes, but who want the support and guidance of a team of experts to make it happen. The Optimal Wellness Program is more than just doctor visits; it’s an approach to managing your health that puts an entire team of medical experts in your corner.

How it Works

We start with an in-depth analysis of where you are today. Based on your medical history and your goals, you’ll undergo a series of sophisticated and comprehensive tests to assess your current hormonal balance, your nutritional status, your stress levels and your risk for chronic disease.

Lab Evaluation

Based on your symptoms we may check:

  • Sex hormones(estrogen, progesterone, testosterone)
  • Stress hormones (cortisol, DHEA)
  • Metabolism (blood sugar metabolism and hunger regulation hormones)
  • Thyroid hormones
  • Complete blood count
  • Kidney and liver function
  • Vitamin D levels

As needed, we may also conduct the following innovative tests:

  • Comprehensive digestive analysis
  • Food sensitivity testing
  • Exposure to heavy metals
  • Evaluation of nutritional status
  • Body composition analysis (body fat/muscle mass)

We’ll also put together a pro-active plan for your health by evaluating a range of bio-medical

Markers that may predict future health risks. This may include tests such as:

  • Genomic testing for inherited risk factors
  • Inflammatory markers
  • Advanced cardiovascular risk factors
  • Estrogen metabolism for cancer risk
  • Urine bone breakdown markers indicating osteoporosis risk

Nutrition Assessment

We’ll conduct a complete nutritional assessment and prepare a dietary plan. This is done to help meet weight loss goals (when appropriate), but also to address medical issues affected by your diet and digestion. Conditions like joint pain, mood swings, chronic digestive symptoms, high blood sugar, high cholesterol and high blood pressure can all be impacted by the food you eat, and how it’s digested.

Your Plan

Once all of the analysis is complete, we’ll compile a personalized wellness program to meet your goals and address any current health issues and symptoms. This includes our medical weight loss program or specialized nutrition program, hormone pellet therapy where appropriate, stress management counseling, and a tailored regimen of pharmaceutical grade vitamins and supplements. Then together, we’ll get to work.

After reviewing your personalized plan, you’ll work together with your team. During this time, you’ll have regular access to your team including visits with the doctor, weekly check ups with your nutrition counselor and access, as needed, to your patient educator. (Check ups and monitoring can take place in the office, on the phone or via email, based on your needs.) This ongoing monitoring helps us to address more issues simultaneously and adapt your program as needed, so that you can see results more quickly.

Labs will be repeated to assess your progress as needed. At the conclusion of your program we will work with you to decide on an ongoing course of treatment to keep you on your path to a healthier you.

Additional Benefits Available Exclusively to Optimal Wellness Patients

To help you get a jump on feeling your best, all Optimal Wellness patients receive complimentary B12 injections. Vitamin B12 is known to boost energy, mood and the immune system as well as increase focus.

You also receive a 10% discount on all nutritional IVs.

Designed to get your already fit body to its optimal level.

The Executive Wellness Program is for patients who are living a healthy lifestyle today. You eat right and you exercise, but you know you could be doing more. Whether that’s Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy to better regulate mood and metabolism or gaining an understanding of where you may be at risk in the future. This 4 month program is designed for those patients who are working hard today to ensure they will live a healthy tomorrow.

How it Works

After gaining a complete understanding of your medical history, and what you’re doing today to stay fit, we’ll begin looking for areas where we can improve your already healthy lifestyle. We’ll take a focused look at how your body is performing, and search for any areas that can be improved.

Lab Evaluation

Where appropriate we may test for:

  • Body composition analysis (body fat/muscle mass)
  • Evaluation of current nutritional status
  • Sex hormone levels (estrogen, progesterone, testosterone)
  • Stress hormones (cortisol, DHEA)
  • Metabolism (blood sugar metabolism and hunger regulation hormones)
  • Thyroid hormones
  • Kidney and liver function
  • Vitamin D levels
  • Exposure to heavy metals
  • Food sensitivities

We’ll also look for bio-medical markers that may predict future health problems that we can address today. Where appropriate we may test for:

  • Genomic testing for inherited risk factors
  • Advanced cardiovascular risk factors
  • Inflammatory markers
  • Estrogen metabolism for cancer risk
  • Urine bone breakdown markers indicating osteoporosis risk

Your Plan

After tests are complete and your baseline is established, you’ll have an extended appointment to discuss a personalized plan to optimize your health. Depending on your goals, this may include Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy and a new pharmaceutical vitamin and supplement treatment tailored to your specific goals. You’ll receive a customized health binder that includes your test results and your personalized wellness plan.

During your program, you’ll check in monthly with your team (by phone or in person). At the end of the program lab tests will be repeated. You’ll have another in-depth appointment during which your progress will be discussed and an updated course of treatment will be decided upon.

Designed to get you back in balance.

The Hormonal Wellness Program is for people experiencing the classic symptoms of hormonal imbalance; fatigue, night sweats, menstrual problems, insomnia, low libido, anxiety, irritability or depression. This program focuses exclusively on getting your hormones back in balance.

How it Works

You’ll start with an appointment to review the results of the labs ordered during your Initial

Assessment. We’ll decide which of your symptoms are due to hormonal imbalances and determine a course of action to treat the problem.

Lab Evaluation

Depending on your symptoms, we’ll review test results such as:

  • Sex hormone levels (estrogen, progesterone, testosterone)
  • Stress hormones (cortisol, DHEA)
  • Complete thyroid evaluation
  • Vitamin D level

Your Plan

One month after starting your new hormone therapy, you’ll check in with your nurse to ensure that you’re progressing and your symptoms are subsiding. An additional round of tests will ordered during your third month so we can be certain you are making improvements.

At the four month mark, you’ll sit down with your doctor for a comprehensive review of your progress and to determine what changes, if any, need to be made to your treatment. During this appointment a plan will be made to continue to monitor your progress moving forward.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you want to find the root cause of your symptoms and optimize your health holistically through sound lifestyle modifications, advanced lab testing and mind-body techniques without unnecessary medications, then our program may just be what you’ve been looking for all along. Just know that it takes a serious commitment to make the lifestyle changes necessary to transform your health once and for all.

As a prospective patient, you may wonder about additional costs not included in our program fee. We know that you’ve likely been to other providers before that may have already run lab tests. That’s why during our comprehensive intake consultation, we will review any existing lab results – so that we can determine if additional, more advanced lab testing is needed to confirm a diagnosis. In terms of supplements, we may recommend certain pharmaceutical-grade supplements for a limited time to support your body’s innate healing process. But long-term, we believe that supplements can’t make up for a poor lifestyle – so our intent is to get you off supplements and unneeded prescription meds as soon as possible.

During the discovery call, we’ll determine whether partnering with our team is the best next step for you. We’ll go over any questions you may have about our approach, and how it differs from what you’ve tried before – so you feel comfortable about the journey ahead.

Ahead of the initial paid appointment, you will complete our extensive background history forms so that we can properly review your history and lab results ahead of your appointment. During the appointment, we will together review your completed intake form, medical history, current and past lab tests – as well as any medications taken, so that we can arrive at a baseline assessment of your overall health and nutritional status. If needed, we may decide on more advanced lab tests to confirm (or rule out) a specific diagnosis, so we can create a personalized treatment protocol.

Our team at Signature Wellness strives to provide you with the most effective and medically advanced techniques available. We are here for you… to help you finally reach your desired health goals.

When we speak over the phone, we’ll assess whether this program is right for you… and answer any questions you may have. Simply pick a time and date that works best for you!
