Do you accept insurance?
We are a cash-only practice for our services and treatments. We can provide you with a detailed invoice to submit to your insurance plan and see what they will pay you. Health Savings Accounts can be used for many of the treatments and therapies. Medicare billing will be available to Medicare patients receiving wound care treatments. You can use your insurance plans for laboratory tests and radiological tests that need to be performed. We have a banking program where patients contribute $50, $100, or more each month until they want a procedure, and that money is used. It is like a savings plan.
What is involved in a DNA test or epigenetic test?
These tests are simple to do. The DNA test is a cheek swab test that is sent to various labs depending on your needs. The epigenetic test is a small blood sample from your finger, sent to a specialized laboratory. Each of these tests takes approximately three weeks for the results?
Do you have any financing options?
We have several options available to you, plus the savings/bank option.
What do I need to bring to the office for a wellness assessment?
Please bring any previous laboratory tests, radiological (X-ray, MRIs, CT scans, etc.), medications, and nutraceuticals you are taking.
Can we use our insurance laboratory benefits?
We can write out orders for the laboratory tests we need, and you can go to the lab of your choice and have them bill your insurance.
Do Human Birth tissue products or PRP injections hurt?
No, the products do not sting when injected. We use a tiny needle similar to an insulin needle to do the procedures.
Is there any downtime or restrictions with the injections?
We encourage you to maintain your level of physical activity. It takes with the birth tissue procedures up to two months before starting to work even though you may have relief beforehand. You need to gradually increase your current level of fitness and do that over a while.
Any pre and post procedures suggestions?
It is essential to be on a good nutritional program before and after the procedures. A high protein, good fat, complex carbohydrate diet focusing on natural anti-inflammatory foods is helpful to your recovery. DO not take NSAIDs before and after the procedure. After the procedure, you should be off the synthetic NSAIDs for two months.
Are our DNA and Epigenetic tests confidential?
We believe in the highest confidentiality. The companies we work with also highly protect your data. The data testing will never be released to any organization – governmental or non-governmental without your permission.
Where does your Human Birth Tissue Products come from?
We use a highly recognized and FDA approved lab which secures these tissues from donated mothers. The umbilical cord, placenta, and amniotic fluid and sac are obtained from national tissue banking organizations. The parents are well screened, and the cords are tested with numerous tests to guarantee their safety. The laboratory uses a minimal manipulated process to use as natural as can be the products. The products are stored at negative two hundred degrees below zero to maintain their vitality. We keep them in our clinic in a liquid nitrogen tank.
For a Wellness appointment, what should be expected?
After you book your appointment, we will send you an extensive history form to fill out and to list your priority of what you want to accomplish. We will review your form at the appointment, look at your previous labs and reports and your medications. We will determine with you what your intermediate and then long-term goals are. Based on this information, we will suggest what tests need to be completed to help set up your wellness path. We will draw them that day at a much lower cost for cash-paying patients for labs than the clinic or hospital laboratories. We will provide you with the kits for the other testing. After the blood tests are back, we will sit down with you to develop a plan and then reassess you after the DNA testing is back. We will continue to assess and reassess you until we are meeting your health goals.
What Are Peptides?
Peptides are short strings of amino acids, typically comprising 2–50 amino acids. Amino acids are also the building blocks of proteins, but proteins contain more. Peptides are naturally occurring biological molecules. Peptides are found in all living organisms and play a vital role in all manner of biological activity. Peptides often act as hormones and thus constitute biologic messengers carrying information from one tissue through the blood. They are hundreds or even thousand of the peptides in our bodies. We select a few to help with GI tract problems, building up muscles, losing weight, impoving brain function, increasing metabolism, increasing longevity, and providing you with good health
