A Proven Process That Works!

Step One

During your initial Health Consultation, you will sit down one-on-one with the doctor to discuss your primary concerns and complaints, and find out how we may best serve you. The doctor will go over the primary testing recommended for you as well as answer any of your questions about how it is that we may be able to help you.

Step Two

By utilizing extensive diagnostic testing, we are able to uncover the root causes behind your symptoms in order to accurately target and heal physiological systems. All testing is completely non-invasive, natural and safe.

Step Three

The start of your initial care plan. Your doctor will provide you with a workbook, journal and cookbook to assist you in your journey. The Doctor will also discuss recommended supplements, glandulars and nutritional plans to target key symptoms, promote healing, and restore balance. Initial treatment plans can be 1 visit or several visits over a 6 month time period. The important thing to know is we are here to find a way to make this work for you.

Step Four

Now that you have gotten well, it’s time to stay well. This step will ensure a lifetime of optimal, lasting health. You’ve invested a lot in yourself up until this point, so protect that investment and the one thing that matters most—you! Continued visits with your doctor as well as our wellness coach (if you choose) will ensure your diet, lifestyle and physiological systems remain in balance and that you are on-track with your targeted health goals for life.

What our patients are saying

No more headaches and fatigue. Improved sleep and more active. End Result…lost 95 pounds lost and bright future!.

…I had been living with other problems as well such as constant headaches and poor sleep. I had come to settle for a lower level of health and wellness. It never occurred to me that all of my symptoms were related. I always felt tired and had bad eating habits. I decided that I needed to lose weight but could barely exercise. After starting my treatment plan with Dr. Josh, I started feeling more energetic and was able to exercise… The weight started to melt away. A year and a half later I found myself 95 pounds lighter, feeling and looking like a new person!
