How Does it Work?
Step 1: Initial Evaluation with Dr. Finnegan
Dr. Finnegan will spend about an hour with you to learn your history, symptoms, about any previous labs, and any other concerns you have. Together, you and Dr. Finnegan will decide what labs are appropriate to order. She will also start you on a specific elimination diet, relating to your symptoms, so you can start to heal while waiting for the results of your labs.
Step 2: Labs
We will send you your labs and you will take them at home. At times, a blood draw is also necessary at a nearby lab. Once the lab receives your test kits, it takes up to three weeks to process them.
Step 3: Initial Recommendations
We will meet with you to go over your labs and educate you on what we find. This visit is about 45 minutes. We will recommend a specific plan for you based on these labs and your symptoms.
Your plan will consist of a map that will help address all of the findings. For example, you may have a parasite, leaky gut, adrenal fatigue, candida, mitochondrial dysfunction, and need liver detox. We won't do all of those at the same time. We might start with your adrenals and the parasite, then two months later move on to the candida, then leaky gut, then the mitochondrial dysfunction, then the liver detox. Addressing all of these issues will take about a year but we would expect you to start feeling some better within a few weeks.
Step 4: Follow Up Visits As Necessary
Follow up visits are typically about a half an hour and occur about every 6-8 weeks. At each Follow Up visit, we will review your response to previous recommendations, and make decisions based on that information. This allows us to continually modify your treatment plan to help you feel better as soon as possible. We will work through your map to continually address your symptoms and the findings from the labs to help you achieve optimal health.
