Do I qualify for the Ahead To Wellness Essentials Program?
This program is for anyone looking to optimize their heath. The only time somebody is not qualified is if their health is too far-gone or that their condition requires urgent medical attention. If a client is not motivated, engaged and willing to take the steps necessary to restore health, they would not be a good candidate for our program.
How much should I budget for functional lab testing cost?
By joining our Ahead To Wellness Essentials Program, you have access to direct pricing on lab test kits, which ensure you pay the lowest possible price. On average, you should budget between $500-$1500 for functional lab testing
Is the Ahead To Wellness Essentials Program and lab testing covered by insurance?
Our programs and functional lab testing are not covered by insurance.
Does the cost of the initial appointment apply towards the cost of a program?
Yes, your first discovery appointment is one of your six appointments. We apply your payment to the total cost of the program and therefore, you are investing into the program when you schedule your first appointment.
Can my appointments be done over the phone or Skype?
Yes. We recommend that your first appointment is done in person so we can meet with you and make sure we are a good fit for each other. If that’s not possible, we can schedule and connect with you, for your appointment, on the phone or video conferencing so we can be more engaged and help you along the process.
Who will my second and third appointment be with?
Your second appointment will be with Dr. Augustine and we will be focusing on your dietary aspects, recipes and menu. We will also provide you with lifestyle coaching and consulting so you’ll walk away with actionable steps you can put into action right away to get your health moving in the right direction. Your third appointment will be about answering your questions and recording your lab result videos. This third appointment is designed to review your lab results and provide the strategy for getting awesome results, regarding your health.
Is it mandatory to use all of my appointments?
If you are a self-starter and like to be independent it is not mandatory to use all of your appointments, as you have direct doctor access. The program’s core value is in evaluating your history, building your clinical case, ordering the right testing, educating and designing a unique solution and strategy for you that addresses your unique six pillars. Our goal is to empower you and guide you on the right path so you can use these strategies for the rest of your life. You are always welcome to use the remaining 3 appointments as needed to focus on your clinical, nutritional, coaching, or lifestyle needs.
How does the lab testing work?
The lab testing is done at home. In some instances, you might have to get blood work done. We will direct you to the lab that will get the job done. Many of the tests have shipping costs included in the cost of the kits, if not you will be responsible for the shipping. You will get instructions in more detail on how to do the test kits, and the kits come with clear instructions as well. Payment is made directly to the lab to ensure you have the lowest price possible.
What happens at the end of the Ahead To Wellness Essentials program?
Once you have moved to a stable place in your health, you can follow up as needed. If you require additional support after your essentials program is complete, you have the option to pay per visit at $149 per half hour appointment or $299 per hour.
