Get to the root cause of your health issue through our personalized
process designed to bridge the gap between functional medicine and clinical nutrition for
clients with imbalances beyond the reach of diet and exercise alone. Through our own
personal experiences we understand the daily struggles of a life with chronic
symptoms and the practicalities of what is required to get your health back on
track. The typical client healing journey takes anywhere from 4 to 12+ months and
follows our personalized process. For a more detailed breakdown of each step in the
process, continue reading to the bottom of this page.
Functional Nutrition is a great option if you want to:
Discover the root cause problems that are keeping you sick
Get access to functional lab testing to uncover the hidden stressors in your body
Troubleshoot common problems like gut infections, food sensitivities, hormonal imbalances and liver toxicity
Look at your body holistically, instead of just chasing symptoms
Use natural therapies backed by science instead of synthetic pharmaceutical alternatives
Customize your diet and supplements based on a healing protocol for YOUR body
Learn to understand the systems of the body and how to take control of your own health
Work with someone who has dealt with chronic digestive issues themselves
We work with clients who:
Are committed to restoring their health to 100% function
Want to learn more about their body so that they can take control of their own health and healing long term
Are willing to make the necessary changes and investment required to improve their health
Have tried other approaches, conventional or otherwise, that haven’t worked
We do not work with clients who:
Are happy to be dependent on medications or very restrictive diets for life to control their digestive symptoms
Feel that making the necessary diet and lifestyle changes are too inconvenient or impossible for them
Want a quick fix or magic pill to solve their health problems
Aren’t prepared to take responsibility for their own health and healing
Initial Consultation During your Initial Consultation Session, Todd will review:
your health and medical history
your diet and lifestyle
function of the key body systems related to your ailment
the history, onset and key characteristics of your illness
medications and supplements
The goal here is to uncover the underlying cause of your ailment
Report of Findings During your First Follow Up Visit Todd will provide you with a Report of Findings. This is where Todd will:
Explain what he thinks is causing your health ailment
Explain what testing should be performed for diagnosis and/or to help rule out suspected conditions.
An initial diet plan
An initial lifestyle plan
Your initial treatment program
Provide a prognosis & explain how long your recovery may take
Follow-Up Visits During Subsequent Follow-Up Visits Todd will:
Monitor your response to treatment
Explain any new lab findings
Adjust treatment based upon laboratory findings and your level of responsiveness
Order any follow up testing needed as treatment progresses
Work to improve your health as soon as possible
How much will this cost?
It’s difficult to list an exact amount because different people will require differing amounts of care. However, we provide cost-effective care. What does that mean? It means we will not order frivolous testing, prescribe unnecessary treatment, or do anything else that could squander your financial resources.
Lab testing is one area where fees can quickly add up. That said, we are often able to obtain excellent results with minimal lab testing. In most cases we may only require roughly $300-$600 of testing, and in some cases no initial lab testing will be required. We also suggest or require minimal follow up testing, if any.
Virtual Office Visits – We usually see a patient once a month while being treated. Depending on the severity of the case, treatment length can typically range from four months to over a year.
Treatment – Cost is heavily dependent on the person. We always opt for the most minimal treatment. Our goal is to get you to a point where you no longer require treatment as quickly as possible.
Initial History & Exam: $430, 20-40 minutes Report of Findings: $225, 15-25 minutes Follow Up Visits: $225, 15-25 minutes Lab Report Analysis: $65.
Do you accept insurance?
No. Insurance companies place many restrictions on practitioners which can make it
difficult to treat you effectively. Even though there are out of pocket expenses, it is cost
effective in the long run.
How does the process work?
First: Schedule Your Initial History and Exam Session.
Second: Register as a Client on the Charm Health EHR Portal. You will receive an email invitation to register as a client from our Electronic Health Record through CharmEHR after Scheduling Your Initial History and Exam Visit.
Third: Initial History and Exam visit. This will be via Zoom Video Conference to which you will receive an email invitation.
Fourth: Your first follow up visit – aka your Report of Findings visit. This can be via video conference or phone.
Note: **All costs of tests and supplements are paid by you (the client) directly to the lab and dispensary respectively and are additional to the individual program fees. **Rescheduling/Cancellation Policy: We have a 48-hour rescheduling policy. If you cancel or reschedule less than 48-hours (two business days) from the time of your scheduled appointment, you will be charged a rescheduling/cancellation fee of $300. for Initial Evaluation/History & Exam appointments and $150. for ROF and Follow-Up appointments. **Arriving late for an appointment: I believe it is not fair for me to keep clients waiting. I expect the same from my clients. Thus, your consultation appointment will terminate at the scheduled time and you will be charged for a full visit, even if you are late. ***All prices in USD
