Announcing a new client service at our practice – Lab Work Analysis!
This $127 service is for new clients and is designed to provide the tools you need to optimize your health from home, on your schedule.
Our experienced health practitioners will analyze your lab work and prepare a 90-day plan to support your health goals.
Here’s how it works:
- Contact Biodynamic Wellness by phone (858.259.6000) or email and request and book our new Lab Work service.
- Our staff will send you instructions on how to submit your current (within the last 3 months) lab results*, as well as our health questionnaire and client paperwork.
- You will receive a confirmation email with an assigned date. You need to make sure to send in your paperwork and labs to the office no later than your assigned date.
- Within one week of your assigned date, I will send back a 90-day nutritional protocol that will include dietary, supplement and general lifestyle recommendations to support your health goals. You will also receive a price estimate of any recommended supplements.
- Once you approve the estimate, your supplements will be shipped to your doorstep and you can begin your new protocol!
*In order to minimize the cost of this service, we do not offer email or phone consults with our practitioners for this particular package. As with our other consultation fees, supplement costs vary and are not included in the $127 service fee.
Lab Work Analysis FAQ
*What labs do I need to submit?
Required labs vary based on the health concerns and goals of the client. We have listed below common health concerns and the minimum blood chemistry panels that your practitioner needs to effectively support you. If you have a health concern that does not fit into one of these four examples, simply send all of your recent lab work and our staff can determine if you meet the minimum requirements for effective support. If your practitioner needs further testing, she will reach out to you.
Examples: hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, Hashimoto’s, Graves, nodules, cysts, goiter, etc.
Minimum testing required: TSH, fT3, fT4, rT3, TPO AB and TgAB
Examples: high cholesterol, diabetes, pre-diabetes, high blood pressure, etc.
Minimum testing required: Lipid Panel, CBC w/diff, CMP, A1c and CRP
Examples: general nutritional guidance, improving overall health, detoxification, etc.
Minimum testing required: CBC w/diff, CMP, A1c, CRP, and TSH
Kidney, gallbladder or liver health
Examples: gallstones, kidney stones, fatty liver, gout, etc.
Minimum testing required: CMP, phosphorus, uric acid, GGT, CRP, LDH, CBC w/diff
How do I know what labs I have?
Since we don’t expect you to know what a CBC or CMP panel is, we’ve created a simple checklist with all the common panels and individual markers listed out by both their abbreviations and full names. When you receive your new client intake forms, simply check off the tests you have listed on your lab results so we can quickly determine if you have the appropriate tests for your health concern.
Your blood test will usually list at the top which tests were ordered, but if not, you can simply check the boxes on our checklist line by line with your blood test.
Go ahead and send in your blood work and we will help you out.
Can I send additional information along with my bloodwork and paperwork so my practitioner can understand more of what I need?
If you have additional test results such as hormone panels, food intolerance or allergy testing, hair mineral analysis etc. from within the last 3 months, you are welcome to submit them. If you have more to tell us than is covered by the intake forms, please share in the extra space on our health questionnaire.
How soon will I receive my protocol?
You will receive your protocol within one week of your assigned date. We schedule analysis requests on a first-come-first-serve basis. You will be notified of this date upon confirmation and receipt of your paperwork.
Will I receive one-on-one email support or talk on the phone with my practitioner?
In order to minimize the cost of this service, we do not offer email or phone consults with our practitioners for this particular package. If you’d like to book a one-on-one consult for additional support, please contact our office by phone or email.
If I purchase this package, recieve my protocol and decide I’d like to book a one-on-one consultation, what do I do?
As a Lab Work Analysis client , you may schedule a 90 minute initial consultation for a discounted fee of $223. After this initial consultation, you may schedule additional follow ups as per the fee schedule of our traditional clients (see above for consultation fee schedule).
Will my supplements for all three months be shipped automatically?
Upon receiving your protocol, you will receive an email with a price estimate of a 90 day supply of the recommended supplements. You are more than welcome to approve the complete purchase or opt to have only the first month supply shipped to you. If you choose to only have a partial supply delivered, you will need to contact the office to order your refills as needed.
I only had a one month supply of supplements shipped to me, how do I reorder?
You can call our office at 858.259.6000 or email us here and we will be happy to help.
What if my doctor won’t order labs for me?
No problem, we are happy to order them for you. Just contact our office and we can create a requisition for you to take to a Quest Diagnostics lab near you. We can recommend a comprehensive panel or more focused lab work based on your specific health concerns. Our pricing is very competitive and better than most online lab services.
Please note: we cannot file with your health insurance provider, but we can charge your HSA account.
What if my doctor already reviewed my test results and said everything looked fine?
We can still support you to optimize your health. Doctors are trained to diagnose and treat disease, we are not. Your doctor will screen your lab results for numbers that are outside of ranges used to diagnose disease. So if your doctor says everything looks fine, great! But if you still don’t feel fine, we are here to help.
As nutritionists, we are trained to recognize the grey area between a disease state and optimal health. So we are screening your lab results for numbers outside of what we call “optimal ranges,” and our protocols are designed to support you move towards optimal health.
What if I’ve completed the 3-month protocol and want to receive further help?
Congratulations on completing your first 90 protocol with us! We would be happy to review your follow up labs and updated intake forms to evaluate your progress and create a revised protocol to continue to support you on your health journey.
Simply contact the office and let them know you would like to schedule a Lab Work Analysis follow up. Since the amount of lab work and paperwork to be reviewed is the same each time, each follow up is also billed at $127. Alternatively, you are welcome to schedule a one-on-one consult with your practitioner at any time.
Can you guarantee results?
As with most other healthcare providers, we cannot guarantee results with any of our clients. It is our goal to create the most individualized and effective protocols based on the information you provide us, but due to the biochemical individuality of every client we cannot guarantee specific health outcomes.
