How To Get Started

  • Free Discovery Call: Chat with Dr. Kurt to see if you would work well together.  
  • Health Audit: Dr. Kurt takes a deep dive into your life experiences, exposures, circumstances, and past labs to get a better understanding of your specific needs.  Then you sit down together where your story adds life to all those data points.  Functional testing will be ordered to determine action steps in how to best help you defeat fatigue. 
  • Plan of Action: Once all information is gathered from the new testing, Dr. Kurt will analyze and send you a video report discussing what problems he has discovered but more importantly the solutions to get you energy. This is done in advance of your follow up so you have time to gather questions, comments, and concerns on those next steps of action.
  • Graduate:  The whole intent of a program is 2 parts.  One part is performance, getting you feeling better and back to your dominant self.  The second part is developing you into your best health advocate so you can fire Dr. Kurt at the end of your program.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ)

Do You Treat "_______" Condition?
We don't treat the condition, we support the person. The advantage of using root cause healthcare is that many conditions have very similar underlying imbalances. What makes us individuals is how we express those imbalances. For example, I could line up 5 people with fatigue and all 5 had different paths in their journey. One may have childhood trauma. Another may have heavy metal toxicity. Another may have auto-immunity. Another may be nutrient deficient. And another may have a thyroid condition. This is why our intake process is thorough and quite lengthy and why we use functional testing that uncovers many issues that standard blood work misses.  We want a targeted solution based on objectives.  
What's the Difference Between Functional Medicine and "_________" Provider?
Your provider, including me, did formal education in a specific discipline. It could be medical school, nursing school, chiropractic college, naturopathic medicine, osteopathy, etc. What that provider learned in school was how to diagnose and treat conditions and manage symptoms. With every functional medicine practitioner I have met, there came a crossroads where managing symptoms and treating conditions wasn't producing health outcomes. So they went searching to better serve their patients.

Functional medicine isn't a specific discipline but more so, a health delivery system. Any health discipline can apply the principles of functional medicine to assess and treat based on systems and origins, opposed to symptoms and organs. The goal of functional medicine is ALWAYS to create health, not manage or treat disease. There's a vast difference in treating disease and creating health. If you're looking to be just a little more comfortable, functional medicine may not be for you. If you're looking to invest in your health, have a guide, and use those gains to better serve those around you, then functional medicine is what you've been searching for.
Do You Take My Insurance?
Sadly this is the one of the first questions people want to know. Why is it sad? Because there are thousands of doctors who accept your insurance but won't help you get better. The first question should be, "Can you help me?" And we don't know until we talk about it first. I encourage you to book a complimentary 15 minute Discovery Call to see if we can help you before we discuss anything else. Be sure to fill out your discovery forms to make best use of our time together.

The other issue with insurance is that it's diagnosis centered. We strive to be patient centered. Too many times people have entered our office feeling like garbage but told there's nothing that can be done because their labs are within range. They are told to go home and wait until the labs go out of range, then they can be labeled with a diagnosis code and submit to insurance for treatment. Waiting until you're sick enough to get treatment isn't healthcare, that's insanity.

By going outside of insurance, you're in charge. There isn't a 3rd party dictating what you can and cannot do based on what will or won't be covered. The decision is between you and the provider.
How Much Do Your Services Cost?
The initial visit is $249. Prior to our visit, we want to do homework. We comb through your health history and review any labs/imaging you may have had in the past before we sit down together for that initial visit to create an action plan. Next steps are ordering functional testing that assesses your dysfunction. 

For example, it could be a test called organic acids. The cash price is $349. Or you can pay the retail fee of $1303. We give you the better price. There could be other testing but will discuss fees ahead of time. Once all information is gathered, a personalized program is set in place with the ultimate intention of teaching and leading you into developing new life skills so you can ultimately fire your doctor. 

Be prepared to invest $2800 - $4000 on your program (including initial visit and labs), lasting on average 6 months (including everything from follow up labs, the YOUniversity Essentials program, all followup visits, products, and automatic upgrades to the program). The price range takes into account if you are more self motivated or if you need more of a support team around you. Be honest with yourself. 
Why Do You Charge a Program Fee?
We charge a program fee because we're in the business of getting results. It's rare for a person to take pieces of our recommendations and be successful with them. The ones that implement the program and stay engaged are the ones who get the desired results.

Our mission is to guide 100,000 Southern Coloradans to create abundant energy so that they may lead, serve, and dominate. To make sure this happens, we put immense value in 3 things: Leadership, Family, and Community. To put this into action we put our 3 values into 3 expressions: Educate, Build Relationships, and Give back. By designing programs, we accept only 10 new clients per month to ensure we can deliver on those promises.

Functional medicine is not traditional healthcare. Your health challenge is multi-faceted and will take time to figure out what is wrong and will take time to get better. Your initial visit isn't going to provide that many answers but will start the process of developing a relationship, making sure you are heard, and gathering the puzzle pieces that create your individual situation. Despite the extensive history taking and past labs provided, it's not until a conversation that takes place that many details about your challenges surface that weren't evident on paper. You bring life to the story.
Can My Doctor Order The Tests?
Honestly, if your doctor knew about these tests or understood them, he/she would have already ordered them. These aren't standard yearly basic labs that fall under 'standard of care.' These labs get to the root of your issues, help us understand what body systems are most disrupted, and help us sequence action steps so you get the best, most lasting results possible. A bigger reason your doctor doesn't know about these tests is because there are no drugs you can prescribe to 'fix' the imbalance on the labs. The solution always comes back to you. You are the solution. You are the hero. You just need a guide and a partner.
Can I Use My HSA or FSA account?
Absolutely! We think these are the best type of plans on the market as YOU can decide where you want to spend your healthcare dollars and get tax savings on top. We provide the necessary documentation to make sure you are in compliance.
What Can I Expect for Results?
Results are created based on the level of effort and commitment you're willing to give. Guess who doesn't get results? The people who just do the initial visit or just piecemeal recommendations together. Guess who gets great results? The people who immerse themselves into the program. We are just a guide in your process. You're the hero. And with any action film, the hero ALWAYS has to overcome challenges to save the world, get the girl, or score the winning basket. Expect to be challenged, intentionally and organically. Expect some self doubt. Expect some small failures but expect some big wins...when you commit.

With that said, here are some characteristics of people who get great results: those ready for a change (even though it's scary sometimes), those who have a supportive spouse/partner, are willing to learn: don't see the cost as an expense but an investment in their greatest asset (their health). 

We don't seek to impart knowledge. We seek to impart wisdom. What's the difference? Wisdom is knowledge with experience. Our team has had health challenges personally and we have walked with hundreds who face similar challenges as you. The people that get great results have 3 things in common: they are open to instruction, they increase in learning, and they obtain guidance.
How Do I Get Started?
The best place to start is with a complementary 15 minute discovery call. Our office isn't for everyone, we understand that. You may even think it's expensive but we're looking for you to take that investment and get a return of 10x by being more productive at work, with your family, and following your personal calling and purpose. Use that time to talk with Dr. Kurt and get some initial questions and concerns addressed before using time and resources to 'try' something you aren't comfortable with starting.
