Could you go through one by one and explain a little bit more in depth about what the process is, how it works and what it can do to help people feel better?
You bet. First, I'll start with consultations with me or another provider in the clinic. Another nurse practitioner is going to be coming on soon, but as nurse practitioners, again, our focus is what's the cause of the problem? So people come in with hormone problems, thyroid problems, belly problems, food problems, weight problems, who knows what it might be? And it may be very small, it may be stage four cancer. And we're not treating cancer like the oncologist, but we're helping the body to improve. So the more complicated issues that a person has, we typically want them to start with consultations with me, so I can sort through that a little bit to help make a strategic plan to help figure out what's at the root of this problem. And then I can better figure out do they need one on one consultations with me, do they need one of the other services, or what do we need to do and overlap.But that's a place where most people start, because we need to make a plan and only one of the providers or myself can make that plan.Most of the services, or many of the services people can just use because they've read information on our website, they have some pain or inflammation or just want to stay on top of their health.So everyone does not have to start with me. But if they have some issues going on, some symptoms going on, giving us a call, looking at our website, seeing me first to help figure out what's going on, is super helpful.And then I'm well informed as well. Most of the time, that's going to be the place to start.But absolutely, we put all of that information out on our website so someone can self navigate, because not everyone's ready to jump in with everything that I'm going to educate them on when they do a one on one session with me, it's amazing how fast the time goes. They've got issues, they've got questions that have never been addressed.And then I'm answering them in a completely different way. Again, coming from the focus of what's your why? What is the cause? And how does the body work to help hear the clues, to discover when did these problems start happening? And this is where we actually need to start.We may have ten different things that we think we need to do or work on, but what's the main thing? Where can we be strategic?
