The case review process is available in-person or video conference.

Step One: Your Initial Consultation

We’ll look at the many of factors influencing your health. The lab tests we order depend on your individual circumstances, and may include:

  • Bloodwork: provides an overview & helps us narrow in on problem areas like blood sugar, thyroid, nutrient deficiencies & inflammation to name a few.
  • Advanced stool testing screens for parasites, fungal overgrowth, intestinal inflammation, dysbiosis, digestive function and deficiency of beneficial bacteria. Specific markers for liver, gluten sensitivity and breakdown of protein.
  • Breath tests check for upper gastrointestinal infections like h. pylori and small intestine bacterial overgrowth.
  • Organic acids tests check neurotransmitters, enzymes, and nutrients. Screens for toxic exporsure, bacterial infections & fungal overgrowth. Can be supportive for ruling out oxalate and other sensitivities.
  • Comprehensive hormone testing for HPA-axis/adrenal function and sex hormones including hormone metabolism.

You will be provided with a health history questionnaires to complete. This is an opportunity to reflect on your goals, history and it makes our time together much more effective. These may include:

  • A detailed health and medical history questionnaire
  • A survey of your chief complaints and health goals
  • An assessment of your most troubling and frequently experienced symptoms
  • A diet survey and questionnaire
  • A survey of your current supplements and medications
Step Two: The Case Review

The Case Review Consultation is a 45 minute appointment. Prior to the consultation, your labs will be sent to you. We’ll go over them together to create a treatment plan. This will include:

  • A discussion of the underlying patterns that are contributing to your symptoms.
  • An outline of the suggested treatment plan, including dietary, supplement and lifestyle recommendations.
  • Recommendations for further testing if necessary.
Step Three: Implementation, Support & Follow-ups

This the most important part. Gathering support to implement the plan will set you up for success. Most patients will have at least two visits with the nutritionist. Providing clarification and tools for change will help you implement your plan.

Once the Case Review is complete we recommend booking appointments as needed while you are in treatment and until you see results. The frequency of your follow-ups will depend upon your condition & your response to the treatment.

Case Review Fees

The Case Review is the fastest and most efficient way to determine the underlying causes of your health problems and design an effective treatment plan. While a Case Review may cost more up front, it is designed to save you money and time over the long-term by performing the appropriate diagnostic testing and evaluation at the beginning. Many patients spend a lot of time and money spinning their wheels but never solving their health issues. Health problems can interfere with having a fulfilling personal & work life. Here is a breakdown of the costs involved in the Case Review:

The Case Review: $595. This includes your initial & case review consultation plus 2 appointments to support necessary changes to diet & lifestyle while implementing the treatment plan. You determine the pace but usually it takes 3-4 months. (For those who have diet & lifestyle support already there is another track. Please inquire.)

Trauma can be resolved in the body. Our bodies are wise & know when it's time.

“I know Amber to be a very caring practitioner. She takes the time to really listen, to get the facts and to dive below the surface. She puts the puzzle pieces together to discover root issues, sometimes with targeted testing to further refine the protocols she suggests. Her approach is of long term correction of imbalances rather than just symptom management.

With her gentle yet direct manner, she makes clients feel comfortable in sharing their personal and often challenging health concerns. Amber is always approachable and open as questions arise along the healing journey.”

Insomnia is often caused by blood sugar dysregulation.

“It has not even been two weeks since I saw you…I sleep so much better already!  This is working and I feel fantastic.  Thank you Amber.”

85% of thyroid issues are caused by autoimmunity. This is often overlooked.

The Functional Medicine that Amber Wood guided me through has had a profoundly beneficial effect on both my physical and emotional well-being. When I first started working with Amber I was experiencing challenging life transitions resulting in my adrenals and digestion in a state of trauma. These things combined left me exhausted, anxious, and uncomfortable to say the least. We worked closely over the past few years to treat, heal and resolve these issues. Through Amber’s knowledge of Functional Medicine we eliminated what ended up being a bacterial infection of the gut lining called H.pylori. Her guidance on all aspects of this process has completely changed my life. I consider her to be a gifted clinician. I am eternally grateful to her.
