Getting Started: Initial Consultation and First Visit
Your initial consultation consists of two visits lasting up to 90 minutes each. During your first visit, you will spend approximately 30 minutes informing us of your current health and allowing us to better understand your symptoms. It is important that you bring a complete list of all medications, vitamins and supplements you are currently taking. We will discuss your goals and understand what symptoms you are experiencing. We will then perform Nutritional Response Testing (a non-invasive system of analyzing the body to determine the underlying causes of a client’s symptoms) along with additional non-invasive tests for the following:
We will review your Report of Findings, which details the results from your first visit tests and go over the recommended treatment plan. We take time to answer any and all questions you may have including what is causing your symptoms.
Three Phases of Health Restoration
Phase One – Fine Tuning Phase: (from 6 weeks to 6 months)
Once you start on your initial nutritional supplement program, you will come weekly in order to COMPLETELY fine tune your basic personal nutritional program. These visits are normally completed weekly to ensure proper monitoring. During this time we will also be reviewing your diet and offering you guidance in regard to any essential improvements in order to maximize your gains.
Bemer Therapy is used to increase circulation and oxygen which increases speed of healing and recovery. Only good, functional circulation ensures proper supply of nutrients and oxygen as well as proper waste removal within the body. This is fundamental for all metabolic processes. It also aids in concentration, mental acuity, stress reduction and relaxation.
Phase Two – Healing & Observation Phase: (from 6 weeks – minimum 6 months)
After your initial “Fine Tuning” period is completed, meaning that your nutritional program is stabilized, you will be ready to start on your next step, the “Healing and Observation Period.” This part of your healing cycle normally does not require continuing weekly visits. Indeed, most people find that optimum progress can be obtained by having a regular schedule of check-ups every other week.
During this Healing and Observation Period, we will be doing three things:
Occasionally during this period additional layers of concerns may show up, and further recommendations may be made which might include additional procedures that can be done in our office.
Phase Three – Maintenance Phase:
Once you have achieved a more optimum health level, you will want to stay well. That is most easily accomplished through regularly spaced Nutrition Response Testing visits over the next year and beyond. The frequency is determined on an individual basis, anywhere from monthly, to quarterly, semi-annually, or even annually. Each individual is different.
Most maintenance programs require lesser amounts of nutritional supplements than were needed in the earlier steps of your program to “protect your investment in your health.” Getting onto a maintenance program will assist us to continue to assist you to assist your body to maintain the health improvements that you have experienced to this point.

During the Free Initial Consultation, Dr. Ryan will consult with you on your symptoms and healing goals and how he can best support you to reach optimal health. If you should decide to go ahead with the initial exam, Dr. Ryan will spend approximately 1 hour with you, going over your complete history and performing the following tests:
Report of Findings: After testing, an appointment will be set up to discuss the complete Report of Findings, going over the results of the testing and recommended corrective treatment.

Natural healing is a process – and takes some time for your body to change its course and start feeling better. The first step is making that commitment to change your nutrition and lifestyle habits. Once you have taken that step of commitment, things will begin to fall into place.
The more closely you follow the procedures we outline, the sooner you will notice results and be able to move on to other steps: Fill out your Food Diary as you eat each meal, snack, etc. between visits. Make it a habit to do it this way and not wait until the end of the day or later. This will ensure accurate information for the practitioner.
What is Nutrition Response Testing?
Nutrition Response Testing is a non-invasive system of analyzing the body to determine the underlying causes of symptoms. This clinically proven—and highly accurate—system provides the practitioner with bodily feedback so precise that it can open the door to safe and lasting recovery, even where everything else has failed.
How quickly will I see results?
It depends on the kind of unease and issues you currently face. Many people see results in the first weeks, especially with detox diet plans and nutritional changes. Read our success stories to hear reports from our patients. We do ask you to be patient and think long term about health and wellness. A good rule of thumb to consider is that you should anticipate one month of healing for every year of unease.
Do you prescribe drugs or pharmaceuticals?
We do not prescribe pharmaceuticals. We believe in using only holistic care methods and natural supplements. The nutritional supplements that we carry are made from whole food and are created by reputable companies with the highest quality and ethical standards. We also practice what we teach in our own personal lives – we use these methods for our own health.
Do you accept health insurance?
We believe in providing everyone with natural health care, so we offer flexible payments plans to ensure that everyone has access to natural healing. We are happy to provide you with a coded invoice to submit to your insurance plan for reimbursement. Be sure to check with your insurance plan – a growing number of insurance plans cover our services. We do accept credit cards, checks, HSAs and payment plans. Our package pricing is very affordable when compared with higher deductibles that many insurance plans currently carry.
How long is an appointment?
The initial consultation and first appointment are each 90 minutes long. Follow-up visits generally take 10 minutes or less. Extended visits, though rarely needed, are charged proportionally. To save time on your visits, write down your questions and let the practitioner know about these at the beginning of the visit. In between visits, it is highly recommended that you take up any questions with your Patient Advocate, who is available on a complimentary basis to assist you.
How do I get started?
During your first visit, you will be asked to fill out detailed forms so we can better understand your symptoms. We ask that you bring a detailed list of all medications, vitamins and supplements you are currently taking. During this 90 minute appointment, we will discuss your symptoms and goals.
