Frequently Asked Questions

 

Are we a good fit for one another?

Great question! Many people are so confused by the volume of conflicting health information online – and they want direction, support, and reassurance that they’d made a good choice in their practitioner. We provide structure throughout our new patient process so you can feel comfortable and heard. To ensure we are a good fit for one another, we begin with a free phone consultation.  This phone consultation is typically about 15 minutes long.  We will get to know one another, we will learn more about your health history, you can ask us any questions you have, and we will determine if you’re a good fit for the initial consultation.  Before this conversation, we ask you to watch a short video about our practice.

What conditions do you help people with?

While we often work with individuals who have a diagnosed medical condition, we also work with people who just don’t feel optimal and want to understand why.  If you have symptoms like skin issues, digestive trouble, fatigue, inflammation, weight gain, and anxiety, we can help!

Tell me more about your philosophy towards health.

At the Nature Medicine Clinic, we take a proactive, whole body approach to health.  You’ll partner with our Integrative Holistic Health Coach and other functional specialists to gain a true understanding of what’s happening within your body. 

We acknowledge that illness (especially autoimmunity) is often rooted in several complex causes and mechanisms.  We focus on stress management, nutrition, sleep and recovery, the removal of environmental toxins, lifestyle adjustment and enhancing the immune system.   Our care plans emphasize each client’s unique biological needs, working towards an optimal state (not just the absence of symptoms).  We teach our clients how to take an active, empowered role in their health.

We use nutrition and natural, non-toxic therapies as much as possible, harnessing the body’s amazing ability to heal itself.

How do your programs work?

Over a period of 3 – 12 months, we deliver a personalized care plan.  You’ll start with our free Discovery Call, move into a virtual intake visit (which is typically an hour long), and then experience regular follow-up visits.  We provide thorough testing, a collaborative care approach, and regular education on topics such as gut health, weight loss, detoxification, blood sugar, and more.

Where are you located? Can you work with me?

We currently located in New Jersey with a second clinic opening in florida. We are also a completely virtual practice so we offer our unique approach and expertise to people in all states and even some in other countries who don’t have access to this specialized type of care. As long as you have Internet access, we can work together.

What does “integrative,” ‘holistic,” or “functional” mean?

These terms refer to an approach to wellness that considers the whole person — body, mind, spirit, and emotions – and works to move the individual to an optimal state.  We are research-based and scientific in our recommendations, but we prefer to use natural solutions or nutrition whenever possible.

What is functional lab work?

Functional lab work helps us determine the underlying cause of dysfunction in the body. While conventional medicine is concerned with “what” you have, we are concerned with “why” you have it.  Functional lab work gives you a better understanding of your current health, health projections, nutrient depletion, inflammatory activity, hormones, etc.

Are you a primary care doctor?

The Nature Medicine Clinic is not a primary care physician. Dr. Krista & Dr. Adam are Naturopathic Doctors. Our members should maintain a relationship with their existing PCP to take care of acute issues and prescriptions.

How much does this cost?

Everyone’s program of care is different, depending on their condition, goals and length of program.  All programs include time with our practitioner, education, mentorship, supplementation and functional lab testing. Begin with our free Discovery Call.
