Second Nature Naturopathic Care is now offering a comprehensive wellness service we call "Know Thyself".
The service is very simple. We order a blood draw at your location and at your convenience. When the report is sent to us, we'll make an appointment for you with Dr. G.This comprehensive report averages about 80 pages and gives her over 500 markers for health and disease. Basically, it's everything you might want to know about your body and it's current state of health.
The blood work itself is almost always covered by insurance. No need to pay for out-of-pocket expenses outside of your deductible. We can offer labs in all 50 states including NY, NJ and Rhode Island.
Some online labs offer test kits for purchase that charge per test. The average cost is $59 for a single data point. Let's see - $59 x 500 = $29,500 if they even offered all 500 tests.
We do offer all 500 tests. When the test is covered by insurance, all you pay for is a single consultation visit - $300. A small price to pay for certainty, clarity and confidence. Are you pre-diabetic or not? Do you have Lyme or have you had Lyme? Are you heading for a stroke? Do you have some infection or chemical imbalance or pre-condition that you know nothing about?
Dr. Guggenheim will review all the significant findings with you, in person or via Skype - and show you where you're within normal range and where you're outside of it and what all that means. But more than that, Isadora brings all that data to life to tell the story of You. You'll take away a complete picture of yourself. One that you can compare to, next year.
You want test results that have meaningful reference ranges not low medium and high. Numbers matter. We make sense of the real numbers. You also want related tests reviewed together to get a bigger picture than just an isolated result. If you've reviewed any of your previous allopathic blood test results you know that a computer is spitting out canned responses, a short paragraph per test. Like the astrological forecast for the day. Just as valid, too.
There is no summing up. In short there is no You in those results. It could be any body.
