Your active participation is highly recommended to establish a foundation for lifelong wellness.
Monthly check-ins are recommended to maintain balance and update your treatment plan.
Visit One: Integrative and Functional Medicine Assessment This session with Dr. Jacobson is a comprehensive review of your health history and a review of your medications and supplements. You receive a personalized lifestyle prescription with recommendations for nutrition, mindful movement, and restorative mind-body practices. Initial laboratory tests, and journal exercises are recommended based on your health history. This visit must occur in-person at Abundant Living Wellness Center.
Visit Two: Metabolic Mind-Body Exam and Assessment This session with Dr. Jacobson includes an integrative physical exam and review of the initial laboratory results to determine your metabolic mind-body type. Specialty Functional Medicine tests are ordered to better understand your health potential and unique genetic and metabolic needs. Your lifestyle prescription is updated with personalized food plans, self-care strategies, rejuvenation therapies, and supportive herbs or supplements. This visit must occur in-person at Abundant Living Wellness Center.
Visit Three: Complete your Personalized Integrative Medicine Treatment Plan This session with Dr. Jacobson pulls everything together into a 3-month Integrative Medicine treatment plan based on your genetic potential and metabolic needs. This treatment plan is updated every 3 months to stay in alignment with your seasonal biorhythms and metabolic mind-body type. Referrals for functional nutrition, Ayurveda treatments, and other integrative practitioners are discussed and recommended. This visit may occur either in-person or via telehealth.
Monthly and Seasonal Follow-Up Consultations The timing is determined by your personalized Integrative Medicine treatment plan. Dr. Jacobson recommends a physician check-in at a minimum of every 3 months to reassess what is working, repeat priority laboratory tests, and modify your health optimization strategies. Monthly functional nutrition consultations and Ayurveda treatments are often needed for successful lifestyle changes and health optimization. Team-based packages or participation in the Abundant Living membership program are highly recommended as this embodies a commitment to your own health. These visits may either be in-person or via telehealth.
Family Consultations This is an option for families who have committed to work together to optimize health and wellness throughout their home. These are educational only and do not provide personalized medical information.
Telehealth Checkins 10 minute brief check-ins to ask questions or discuss progress as you live out your medical wellness plan in real-life! Available once your Integrative Medicine treatment plan is completed.
