How it works:

1. CONSULTATION:

The IWG Functional Medicine Team will spend an hour with you to listen carefully to your health history, your symptoms, dietary habits, medications, supplements, and sleep patterns. We will perform diagnostic testing on the day of the consultation including a Bioscan and Bioresonance Scan. We will analyze your history to decipher which lab analysis is most appropriate

2. LAB TESTING:

IWG performs advanced testing in order to direct us on the best protocols for your health. We collaborate traditional biochemical testing such as on-site blood work, stool analysis, heavy metal testing with biophysics testing such as Autonomic Response Testing and Bioresonance Testing. This helps to bridge the gap between American medicine and European medicine to uncover the true root of your symptoms.

3. ANALYSIS:

Dr. Nicole always says, “you will learn a lot about yourself in this session.”  Our IWG team will review your history and results to explain the correlation of your symptoms to your lab findings. The team will layout a treatment plan and meal plan to address all findings from your lab analysis and testing.

4. TREATMENT:

Our treatment protocols are custom and based on the lab analysis and testing performed. We test the body in a way to determine which therapies are the most beneficial in addition to which supplements are the most beneficial.  No program is alike and no program is cookie cutter. Programs do change every quarter as your body changes and heals.
