The initial 15 min phone consultation is complimentary. We do this so that we can quickly find out if we’re a good fit for each other and if our program can help you.

What is hormone pellet therapy?2023-02-09T11:33:46-07:00

Hormone pellet therapy uses bioidentical hormone pellets to treat hormone deficiencies and imbalances. Bioidentical means that the hormones used are the same molecule that the body makes and then metabolizes. The pellets are inserted under the skin. The blood supply then forms over the pellets, and with each heartbeat, the hormones are taken to be used by the target cells. This is very similar to how the hormones are taken up from the ovaries and testes. The pellets are active for 3-6 months, depending on multiple factors. The pellets completely dissolve, and do not need to be removed.

What is functional medicine and how is it different from conventional medicine?2023-03-09T19:22:28-07:00

Functional Medicine prioritizes treating the individual as a whole, not just the disease. This approach involves a comprehensive evaluation of your health history, lab results, and physical examination to identify the underlying causes of health problems. A personalized treatment plan is created and continuously adjusted to guide you towards optimum wellness. Our approach encompasses dietary modifications, physical activity, lifestyle changes, hormone therapy, supplementation, and medication as needed.

What hormones can be replaced/supplemented with pellets?2023-02-09T11:35:29-07:00

We can replace Estrogen and Testosterone with pellets. We also balance other hormones such as Progesterone, Thyroid, and Insulin with diet, supplementation, lifestyle changes, or medication if absolutely necessary.

What defines success, and what is the success rate? 2023-01-19T11:57:59-07:00

How Long Will The Results From Acousana Therapy Last?2022-08-24T15:47:31-06:00

Following a full treatment protocol, most patients report long term results with some experiencing permanent relief. Clinical studies show patients evaluated using the Visual Analogical Scale (VAS) at a medium term (6-12 months) as well as long term (13-24 months) post treatment, continued to report a decrease in their level of pain and an increase in their range of motion. Individual outcomes vary.

How Long Does It Take To See Results With Acousana Therapy?2022-08-24T15:47:43-06:00

The vast majority of patients see an immediate reduction in pain, inflammation and swelling after the first treatment.

How long do the results last?2023-02-14T16:52:26-07:00

Hormone pellet therapy provides the most sustained levels of hormones for the longest period of time without the “roller coaster” effect. The treatment usually lasts 3-4 months for women and 4-5 months for men. This treatment time depends on metabolism, diet, supplements, exercise, gender, and conditioning.

How is your clinic different from others offering hormone replacement therapy?2024-07-18T12:41:38-06:00

Rather than carefully balancing all of your hormones, many clinics simply boost your testosterone or estrogen levels which can either accentuate the problem or not work at all. Hormones are delicate and should be balanced precisely in order for you to feel your absolute best. Our experienced providers have successfully performed over 5000 pellet treatments and are among the longest-standing hormone experts in Utah. We value spending time with you and the opportunity to listen closely to what you’re experiencing then combine that understanding with knowledge gained through thorough lab work to build a highly-customized treatment plan designed just for you.

How is the pellet inserted?2024-07-18T12:42:38-06:00

Prior to the insertion of the pellets, the correct individualized dose is calculated by your provider. During the in-office visit, which only takes a few minutes, you’ll be brought into the exam room, and the insertion site is numbed. The most common site of insertion is the upper buttocks. A small incision is then made for pellet insertion. Once the pellet is inserted, the site is covered with a small bandage (no stitches are needed).

How is it different from programs I’ve tried before?2023-01-19T11:58:38-07:00

We focus on education. Many patients fail to see success with other programs simply because they don’t understand the importance behind the changes they’re being asked to make. We believe education comes first. That way, you not only see the results you’re after but you also know exactly what you did in order to achieve them so that you can replicate the process again and again towards total health mastery.

How is CIRS diagnosed?2023-07-05T11:46:19-06:00

Diagnosing CIRS can be complex. It often involves a combination of a detailed medical history, symptom evaluation, visual contrast sensitivity (VCS) testing, laboratory testing (such as biomarker analysis), and potentially other specialized assessments like genetic testing or imaging studies. Working with a healthcare professional experienced in CIRS diagnosis is crucial. Here is a brief explanation of some of the diagnostic tests that may be used:

VCS Screening:
VCS tests the contrast function of vision, or the ability to see an edge. This test looks at the graded change of contrast at different light frequency used to make a grid of five separate frequencies. The test can be used to determine a biotoxin illness such as CIRS.

NeuroQuant:
NeuroQuant is a volume measurement on 11 paired brain structures based on one sagittal view MRI without contrast. Using tables based on thousands of patient studies it can differentiate type of exposure based on brain injury pattern. NeuroQuant testing often can detect the exposure that cased the patient’s CIRS. This test can be used for both diagnosing CIRS and evaluation of the effectiveness of treatment.

GENIE:
Genie is a gene expression test preformed on a single blood specimen. This test examines the activity of 188+ genes. It examines the activity of these genes that have the most important impact on the diagnosis and treatment of CIRS patients.

How does hormone replacement therapy compare to other treatments?2023-02-09T11:34:43-07:00

Hormone therapy replaces what the body is missing. We use your labs, symptoms, and health history to replace and balance what your body needs. Diet, hormone precursors, and supplements help, but do not replace the hormones that are low or imbalanced in your body.

How does functional medicine support the body’s natural healing processes?2023-03-09T19:28:18-07:00

Functional medicine supports the body’s natural healing processes by identifying and addressing the underlying causes of disease, rather than just treating symptoms.

At One Wellness, we take into account the complexity of the human body and recognize that health is not simply the absence of disease, but rather a state of optimal function and well-being. To achieve this state, we focus on identifying and addressing the root causes of disease and restoring the body’s natural balance.

The following are some of the ways that functional medicine supports the body’s natural healing processes:

  1. Identifying and addressing nutrient deficiencies: A functional medicine approach considers the role of essential vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients in maintaining health and supports the body’s natural healing processes by replenishing these vital nutrients through diet and supplementation.
  2. Reducing inflammation: Inflammation is a natural response to injury or infection, but chronic inflammation can lead to a host of health problems. We use a variety of techniques, such as dietary changes, supplementation, and lifestyle modifications, to reduce inflammation and support the body’s natural healing processes.
  3. Balancing hormones: Hormonal imbalances can lead to a range of health problems, including fatigue, mood changes, and weight gain. We evaluate and address imbalances in hormones, such as cortisol, estrogen, and testosterone, to support the body’s natural healing processes.
  4. Improving gut health: A healthy gut microbiome is critical for overall health and well-being. We address imbalances in gut bacteria and support the body’s natural healing processes by using dietary changes, probiotics, and other treatments to improve gut health.
  5. Reducing stress: Chronic stress can weaken the immune system and lead to a range of health problems. We use stress-management techniques, such as mindfulness, meditation, and exercise, to support the body’s natural healing processes.
How does functional medicine integrate conventional and complementary medicine?2023-03-09T19:24:11-07:00

Functional Medicine integrates conventional and complementary medicine by combining the best of both approaches to address the underlying causes of disease and chronic illness and promote optimal health. It recognizes the importance of conventional medical practices, such as diagnosing and treating acute illnesses, and incorporates evidence-based complementary therapies, such as nutrition, lifestyle modification, and stress management. This approach takes into account your unique circumstances, including genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors, to create a personalized treatment plan that addresses the root cause of the condition and promotes overall health and well-being. The aim of functional medicine is to address the complex interplay of factors that contribute to chronic illness and to empower you to take an active role in your own health and healing.

How does functional medicine evaluate and treat the root cause of a health issue?2023-03-09T19:23:26-07:00

We take a thorough approach to evaluating your health through a comprehensive health history, extensive lab tests, and physical examination. Our goal is to uncover the underlying causes of dysfunction in the body and determine the root cause of your condition.

How does functional medicine evaluate and address imbalances in gut health?2023-03-09T19:25:22-07:00

At One Wellness, we take a comprehensive approach to evaluating and addressing imbalances in the gut. The gut is recognized as an integral part of overall health and wellness, and imbalances in the gut microbiome can contribute to a wide range of health issues, including digestive problems, autoimmune diseases, mood disorders, and more.

In order to evaluate imbalances in the gut, we use a combination of techniques, including:

  1. Comprehensive health history: A thorough evaluation of the your symptoms, dietary habits, and lifestyle to determine any factors that may be contributing to gut imbalances.
  2. Lab tests: Blood tests, stool tests, and other lab assessments to evaluate the health of the gut microbiome and identify any deficiencies or imbalances.
  3. Physical examination: An assessment of the abdomen and digestive system to identify any physical signs of gut imbalances, such as bloating, abdominal pain, or discomfort.

Based on this evaluation, we will create a personalized treatment plan with you that addresses your unique needs and supports the body’s natural healing processes.

How does functional medicine consider a patient’s lifestyle and environmental factors in their treatment plan?2023-03-09T19:23:47-07:00

The various aspects of our daily life, including lifestyle, environment, stress levels, exposure to toxins, diet, physical activity, and emotions, can significantly impact our physical health. When determining the root cause of a disease, we examine these factors to understand their effect on your health. Based on this evaluation, we may suggest appropriate modifications to improve overall wellness.

How does functional medicine approach nutrition and dietary changes?2023-03-09T19:24:33-07:00

Functional Medicine takes a holistic approach to nutrition and dietary changes. Instead of simply focusing on reducing caloric intake or avoiding certain foods, the goal is to understand your individual nutritional needs and address any imbalances or deficiencies. This approach considers your age, health status, lifestyle, cultural background, and personal preferences to determine the most appropriate dietary modifications. We recognize the importance of nutrient-dense, whole foods and may suggest dietary changes, such as increasing the consumption of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and healthy fats, to improve overall health and support the body’s natural healing processes. We will also consider the role of food sensitivities and allergies in contributing to chronic illness and may recommend elimination diets or other interventions to identify and address these issues. In addition to making dietary changes, we  may also recommend specific nutrient supplementation based on your unique needs and health status. The goal is to support the body’s natural healing processes, reduce inflammation, and promote optimal health and wellness.

How does functional medicine approach chronic diseases and conditions?2023-03-09T19:23:00-07:00

Chronic diseases and conditions result from disruptions in various bodily processes such as neural, hormonal, physical, and emotional. To determine the root cause, we conduct a thorough evaluation of your health history, lab results, and physical condition. Our aim is to reverse the chronic disease or conditions using a multi-faceted approach that incorporates diet, exercise, lifestyle modifications, supplementation, hormone therapy, and medication as needed. In cases where complete reversal may not be possible, we strive to improve your health and well-being to the greatest extent possible.

How are estrogen levels tested if I am on hormone therapy?2024-05-13T12:49:18-06:00

Understanding the appropriate method for testing estrogen levels is crucial to ensure effective hormone therapy management. The method of testing depends on the form of hormone therapy you are using. Here’s a straightforward guide:

  • Ovary (No additional therapy): The ovary has a blood supply that uptakes hormones with every heartbeat. These hormones are then carried by the blood vessels to the target cells of the body. The hormones from the ovary are not transported via the lymph system or from cell to cell. The most appropriate way to test these hormones is in the blood or serum. This will give the most accurate results.
  • Hormone Pellet Therapy: If you are undergoing hormone pellet therapy, blood/serum tests are the recommended method for monitoring your estrogen levels. This type of therapy involves inserting pellets and blood vessels forming around them. These blood vessels pick up the hormones from the pellets and take them to the target cells of the body. This is done in the exact same way that blood vessels take hormones from the ovaries to target cells. Therefore, a blood test provides a direct measure of how much estrogen is circulating in your system, ensuring that your treatment is effectively tailored to your needs.
  • Hormone Patches or Creams: In contrast, if you are using hormone patches or creams, these forms of therapy are absorbed through your skin and do not enter the bloodstream in the same way as pellets. The hormones are then transferred via the lymph system or from cell to cell transfer. Because these hormones are processed differently by your body, blood tests may not accurately reflect the levels of hormones being utilized by your body tissues. For this reason, saliva testing is the preferred approach for these therapies. Saliva testing measures the levels of hormones inside the cell. Measuring the cellular levels of hormones by measuring the saliva gives a more accurate indication of what the hormone level is inside of the cells.
Does Acousana Therapy Work For My Condition?2022-08-24T15:47:49-06:00

Acousana focuses on the source of the problem and addresses the inflammation that is the root cause of pain. If the pain is caused by inflammation, then it’s something our therapy can help with.

Do you accept insurance?2023-11-08T15:41:20-07:00

We do not currently accept insurance. We made this decision to streamline our processes and offer more affordable, transparent pricing to our patients.

However, we understand that insurance coverage can be an important factor in your healthcare decisions. We can provide you with a receipt that you can submit to your insurance company for potential reimbursement if your plan allows for out-of-network providers. Please keep in mind that coverage and reimbursement rates can vary widely depending on your insurance plan.

Why don’t you accept insurance at your clinic?

We believe insurance plays a critical role in emergency care, which is essential for immediate health crises. However, our clinic’s mission is to optimize overall health through comprehensive services that go beyond the scope of what insurance covers.

Insurance often leads to healthcare rationing and allows corporations rather than medical professionals to determine patient needs. This can limit the treatments doctors offer and encourage shorter patient interactions, which doesn’t align with our goal of providing in-depth, personalized care. Moreover, insurance can lead to unexpected costs for patients, much like surprise bills in other sectors.

By not accepting insurance, we avoid the constraints it imposes on the depth and quality of care. We’re free to provide tailored, comprehensive services without the limitations set by insurance companies. This approach ensures our patients receive the attention and care that truly benefits their long-term health without the risk of surprise billing.

While traditional insurance is not accepted, we welcome you to use your Health Savings Account (HSA) or Flexible Spending Account (FSA) cards to pay for our services. This allows you to benefit from tax-advantaged accounts while investing in your health optimization.

To read more on this topic, we invite you to read our article: “Beyond Insurance: Embracing a Holistic Approach to Health and Wellness”

Do I have to exercise? 2023-01-19T11:52:29-07:00

You technically, don’t have to do anything but we hope you care about your health as much as we do. We’ll suggest simple exercises that can be performed at home, at the gym, or on the go.

Can my partner and I do the program together? 2023-01-19T11:52:57-07:00

Yes, in fact, many couples, partners, or even roommates can go through the program together and help support each other along the way.

Can I continue living in a moldy environment if I have CIRS?2023-07-01T15:35:29-06:00

Step one of the CIRS treatment protocol is to get out of or clean up the moldy environment. Living in a moldy environment can exacerbate symptoms and hinder recovery for individuals with CIRS. It’s important to take steps to remediate the mold and create a clean and healthy living environment. This is a critical step in order to achieve complete recovery from CIRS and typically involves working with professionals experienced in mold remediation.

Can functional medicine help with mental and emotional health concerns?2023-09-26T17:52:17-06:00

Yes, functional medicine can help with mental and emotional health concerns. The functional medicine approach recognizes that mental and emotional health are interconnected with physical health and considers the impact of psychological and social factors on overall health and wellness.

The gut is known as the second brain, and can influence our moods and emotions.  Toxins can disturb our neurotransmitters.  In functional medicine we can look at your neurotransmitters and other biochemistry to see how it is affecting your mood.  We can then set up a treatment plan to improve your emotional health.

At One Wellness, we use a holistic approach to evaluate the underlying causes of mental and emotional health issues, including nutrient imbalances, chronic inflammation, hormonal imbalances, and more. By addressing these root causes, we aim to support the body’s natural healing processes and promote optimal mental and emotional health.

In addressing mental and emotional health concerns, we may use a combination of therapies, including:

  1. Nutrient therapy: Supplementation with essential nutrients, such as omega-3 fatty acids, B-vitamins, and magnesium, to support brain function and improve mood.
  2. Lifestyle changes: Recommendations for physical activity, stress management, and sleep hygiene to improve mental and emotional health.
  3. Functional medicine testing: Assessments, such as saliva hormone testing and food sensitivity testing, to identify any imbalances or sensitivities that may be contributing to mental and emotional health concerns.
  4. Mind-body therapies: Techniques, such as mindfulness, meditation, and therapy, to support mental and emotional health and improve overall well-being.

We will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses your unique needs and supports your journey to optimal mental and emotional health.

Can diet play a role in managing CIRS?2023-06-02T18:44:59-06:00

Yes, diet can play a significant role in managing CIRS. A nutrient-dense, anti-inflammatory diet that focuses on whole foods, emphasizes gut health, and minimizes potential triggers can help support the body’s healing process. Working with a qualified healthcare professional or a registered dietitian who is knowledgeable about CIRS can provide guidance on an appropriate diet plan.

Can CIRS be cured?2023-07-05T11:47:24-06:00

Yes, with proper treatment and adherence, a cure for CIRS is possible in most patients. While each patient is unique, the 12 step Shoemaker protocol can take between 12-18 months to complete. The goal of treatment is to address underlying triggers, support detoxification pathways, reduce inflammation, normalize biomarkers and optimize overall health.

Can CIRS affect mental health?2023-06-02T18:45:32-06:00

Yes, CIRS can have a significant impact on mental health. The chronic inflammation and neurotoxic effects associated with CIRS can contribute to symptoms like brain fog, memory problems, mood disturbances, anxiety, and depression. Treating the underlying inflammation and addressing the biotoxin exposure can help alleviate these mental health symptoms.

Are there specific recipes I have to make?2023-01-19T11:51:54-07:00

As part of your program, we’ll provide you with simple and delicious recipes that you can make as well as a complete shopping list to make it even easier when you’re at the store. Most recipes take between 15-30 minutes to prepare.

Are there specific lab tests for CIRS?2023-07-05T11:46:52-06:00

Yes. We can do genetic testing, check inflammatory biomarkers such as C4a, TGF-beta 1, MMP-9 and MSH. We can also perform an MRI scan for brain volume and a gene function test.

Are there any side effects, risks, or downtime?2023-02-09T11:36:39-07:00

Hormone pellet therapy is very safe. We are replacing the missing hormones with the exact molecule that your body is used to making and metabolizing. Studies show that hormone pellet therapy causes no increased cancer risk and suggest that cancer risk may even be lowered.

Typically, there are no side effects or only minimal side effects from the pellets. If there are side effects, they could be mild pain at the insertion site, infection, swelling, or extruded pellets. Hormone therapy usually causes weight loss, however, initially, there might be a little weight gain from building more muscle mass. Once there is increased muscle, this will start to burn up excess fat.

During the week following hormone pellets, we encourage you to take showers as needed but don’t soak in water or do exercises on your gluteal muscles. You can exercise your upper body, go on level walks, and do leg exercises that don’t involve your gluteal muscles.

Are pellets the only treatment you offer?2023-02-09T11:37:41-07:00

Although hormone pellet therapy is our preferred method of hormone therapy, it is not the only one that we can use. We can also use bioidentical gels and creams and testosterone shots. These therapies can have increased risks and problems over pellets. Pills by mouth can lead to liver disease and cancer. Shots are not bioidentical, leading to increased cholesterol and increased risk of heart attack, stroke, and blood clots. Gels and creams are bioidentical, meaning they are the same hormone that the body makes and knows how to metabolize but can be easily transmitted to others in your household, coworkers, and friends.

Am I A Candidate For Acousana Therapy? Are There Any Side Effects?2023-04-10T15:03:47-06:00

There are no known negative side effects of Acousana therapy and you can return to your daily activities immediately after the treatment. However you will want to avoid overusing the injured area until completing all therapy sessions.
