Specialized Assessments

Clients generally start with a 2-hour comprehensive assessment with the nurse practitioner, Carla Peppler.  The assessment includes a review of symptoms, medical and surgical history, pharmaceutical medications and natural supplements, lifestyle choices, job history, exposure to potential toxicities, diet history, previous blood work and test results, BIA and blood pressure lying and standing.  Depending on the client’s health goals and symptoms, a number of specialized assessments may be done to enhance the data gathering process including blood work, live blood cell analysis, arterial screening with the CASPro, hormone saliva testing, food allergy testing, heavy metal challenge test, etc.  Based on the information gathered and the client's desired health goals, a treatment plan is jointly developed.
