Functional Medicine / IWG Style /

A style of medicine that uses specific and comprehensive lab testing to find the root cause of your symptoms. IWG collaborates lab testing, Autonomic Response Testing, and Bioscan technology to get you an appropriate diagnosis and a customized treatment plan.  We provide an integrative approach to healing using our Detox Spa, nutrition, advanced medical technology, supplementation, and education.

Who can benefit from this service?

You are someone who has not been feeling your best but is unsure why.  You are fatigued, not sleeping well, not able to lose weight, feeling “hormonally off”, having digestive issues, or having trouble with fertility.  You may be blaming it on aging but are looking for a solution to feel better and function better.  You want a whole-isitic approach that allows you to understand the source of your symptoms.  You desire a new lifestyle approach (not another “bandaid”) to take control of your health and start feeling great.  So you schedule your initial consultation and exam with Dr. Nicole or Functional Medicine Nutritionist Brooke.  Our Clinicians have varying expertise, upon scheduling the staff will recommend which clinician is the best fit.

How to get started and what does my visit look like?

You give Dr. Nicole or Brooke all of the details of your health history, dietary habits, medications, supplements, and sleep patterns. They will recommend in depth laboratory analysis to dig deeper to find the root cause of your symptoms.  An IWG Clinician will then perform a scan using the Bioscan SRT to scan your body of stressors and allergies.  In addition to medical labs, our custom Autonomic Response Testing with Dr. Nick will provide diagnostic information and your personalized treatment needs (including appropriate supplementation and nutrients).

You meet Dr. Nicole or Brooke about 2 weeks later to review all of your lab results.   The clinician will explain the correlation of your symptoms to your lab findings.  They will also layout very specific lifestyle recommendations.  Recommendations include dietary changes, supplementation, stress reduction techniques, and detoxification methods. Depending on the patient’s needs, Dr. Nicole and Brooke will collaborate with other IWG clinicians to incorporate nutritional counseling, Autonomic Response Testing, Emotional Release Therapy, and the Bioscan SRT for allergies/stressors.

What about Continued Care?

You will be recommended follow ups as needed, alternating between Functional Nutritionist Brooke and Dr. Nicole. Based on your needs, your program may include Emotional Release Technique, Craniosacral Therapy, Autonomic Response Testing, or Allergy Treatment Support.  You also have access to Dr. Nicole’s cookbook, laser detox therapy, online support, a super secret Q&A forum, a state of the art online membership portal, cooking demos, and shopping tours.  The doctors of IWG have different areas of expertise but they are always communicating and co-managing patient cases.  Upon recommending care, the doctors may or may not suggest other services to compliment your goals.

Congrats on a New You, New Body, and a New Life! YOU ARE WORTH IT!

Recommended Laboratory Analysis

Most patients begin with the following Labs*, which provide an in-depth look into your body and an accurate evaluation of your current state of health.

  • Comprehensive blood chemistry panel. This is the single most efficient, effective and affordable tool for quickly evaluating your health. It screens for a wide range of conditions, including several types of anemia; gut, viral and bacterial infections; insulin resistance and hypoglycemia; liver and kidney issues; and thyroid and adrenal problems. It offers important clues for how to structure and focus your treatment to get the best results. It also provides a baseline of biomarkers that can be used to objectively track the progress of your treatment over time.
  • Additional blood tests for specific conditions, such as high cholesterol, hypothyroidism, autoimmune disease, and gluten sensitivity.
  • Advanced stool testing to screen for parasites, fungal, overgrowth, bacterial infections, intestinal inflammation, dysbiosis and a deficiency of beneficial gut bacteria.
  • Urine hormone and neurotransmitter testing for adrenal and sex hormone status.
