How does the program work?
Your health professional will determine what testing needs to be performed during your consultation. More complex or serious conditions will likely require more extensive testing. The overall cost is a pittance compared to the medical costs and drugs and considering that you may be sicker or dead if you continue with the medical treatments and drugs that are not working.
How long does it take to get the test results back?
If you do the testing through your doctor's office, it usually takes no more than two weeks to get all of the test results back and your personalized detailed report completed!
Can I get my blood work done through my non-SBN health professional?
Yes, however, it would be prudent for you to check pricing thoroughly. Many patients find the cost is less if you get it through a Science Based Nutrition™ health professional. If you decide to go through your insurance company for reimbursement, the test findings will go on your permanent record and will affect future premiums and ratings.
What makes SBN trained health professionals different from "nutritionists" or general "doctors"?
The Science Based Nutrition™ analysis and recommendations are based on scientific and objective testing. Some of the diagnostic testing used are blood testing, toxic and elemental hair testing, food allergy testing (ALCAT and Elisa), DMSA urinary challenge, DEXA bone density scan, and EKG. There are a lot of very questionable 'energy' techniques to determine diseases and conditions including the many variations of muscle testing. Studies have shown they are no better than just guessing. We get great results because we use objective testing methods.
We also have a higher standard in Healthy Ranges.
How long will it take before I start to see improvement in my health problems?
Understand that we don't have a cure for your problem whether it is a rash, diabetes or cancer. Our goal is to get you healthier. Progress is the key and generally patients see some definite, objective improvement within 2 months. If you committ to following the program for 2 months, it is highly unusual that progress/improvement is not seen. Then the goal is to keep you improving on a consistent basis.
