When was the last time you got the attention you really needed from your doctor or health care provider?
It’s uncommon to be able to to spend 90-minutes discussing your personal health history and life story with anyone, let alone your doctor. Yet this is exactly what is needed to help you uncover the underlying causes of your condition and begin the path to recovery.
My goal is to empower you to discover your unique requirements for optimal health and wellness.
My comprehensive health recovery programs are designed to work alongside your doctor’s treatment plan to look for the underlying cause(s) of your condition so that you can fully recover.
I want you to become free of dependency on drugs and doctor visits and get back to doing what you came here to do: Live a purposeful life.
Working with Michelle lead me to the most empowered place in my healing journey. After years of struggling with autoimmune disease I finally knew what was causing my condition and I learned exactly what actions I could take to fully recover. I wish I had met Michelle 10 years ago.” – Lisa Savage
Heal Faster While Saving Time and Money
Reversing a chronic condition is a time-sensitive issue. Cutting out the guesswork is critical, because you need to get to the root cause before the condition progresses.
Functional testing allows us to assess GI health, nutritional status and deficiencies, food intolerances, toxicity and infections and find the functional imbalances.
When you “test instead of guess” – you escape the vicious cycle of running from practitioner to practitioner “trying on” different treatments and supplements for what someone intuits “assumes” might help your condition. Instead, the right testing arms you with the knowledge and power to act quickly and efficiently. This approach can save you years and thousands of dollars over the course of your recovery.
Uncovering the Emotional Aspects of Your Condition
The Functional Mind-Body Approach addresses your body, mind and spirit. The goal is to help you transform your inner world while you’re healing your physical body.
Every illness has an emotional connection. This doesn’t mean, “It’s all in your head.” It means that there are identifiable emotional stress patterns that trigger dis-ease in your body. You have the power to shift these patterns, reduce your emotional stress and attain the peace, clarity and empowerment that can ultimately transform your health.
I will help you uncover the emotional roots of your condition and provide you with suggestions and resources to help you heal.
Functional Mind-Body Consults
The Functional Mind-Body Approach is a personalized whole mind-body health assessment and restorative program that follows two phases:
“When you work with Michelle, you get to see the core issues in your life that are making you sick. She’s intuitive and loving. She’s more like a close friend and ally than a health practitioner. I feel like I can tell her anything. When I follow her advice I feel better.” – Jessica Rosen
Phase I: Awareness – Your Personal Health Assessment and Initial Consult
Your personal health assessment begins with an initial 90-minute in-person, phone or Skype intake to discuss your condition and your health goals.
Prior to your initial appointment you will receive a comprehensive mind-body health history questionnaire along with my personal assessments for you to complete.
My philosophy has always been “Test, Don’t Guess! I will determine if you have the appropriate diagnostic tests from your medical doctor and make suggestions if your labs are incomplete. Depending on your condition and health goals I’ll provide you with functional medical tests, to help uncover any GI disturbances, nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalances or toxic exposures.
Genetic testing is recommended and interpretation is provided.
My goal is to get as much information about you and your life before we begin working together. I have found that this process is the fastest and most efficient way to uncover the root cause of your condition and guide an effective recovery plan.
Doing all the testing and homework before your first visit saves a considerable amount of time and money down the road.
Your Functional Mind-Body Consult Includes:
- Comprehensive review of your previous health history, labs, and personal assessments
- 90-minute in-person or Skype consultation to discuss your results and review your healing program
- Lab suggestions for your medical doctor and functional testing recommendations, which you can get through my office
- Comprehensive review of your current nutrition and supplementation
- Personalized mind-body healing program including ancestral nutrition guidelines, supplements, essential oils, lifestyle enhancements and meditation/breathing practices
Phase II – Maintaining Optimal Mind-Body Wellness
After your initial consult you’ll have follow-up appointments on an as-needed basis throughout the remainder of your recovery program.
Most follow-up appointments occur between 2 and 3 weeks after the initial consult.
In a follow up consult I will review your progress, along with any additional test results, and make adjustments to your program if necessary.
In general the frequency of your follow-up appointments will depend upon the severity of your condition as well as your response to the nutrition and lifestyle recommendations.
Follow-up appointments may be scheduled in person in my Los Angeles, or Taos offices. Many people choose to follow up via phone or Skype.

Functional Testing Fees
The fees for functional laboratory tests ordered during your functional mind-body healing program will depend on the complexity of your condition. I don’t mark these up like many providers do, and allow you to pay the lab directly.
Some of the best functional lab tests may be covered by your health insurance. The functional labs I work with are contracted with many PPO insurance companies and offer excellent discounts to members. For example, my favorite GI test retails for $2100, but if you have a qualifying insurance, you only have to pay $99.00. Medicare covers most functional testing!
The typical cost for nutritional supplements on a Functional Mind-Body healing program is between $150 and $400 per month. You do not need to purchase supplements through me, but I can save you money on physician line formula’s such as Metagenics, Thorne Research or Pure Encapsulations.
Follow Up Laboratory Tests
Ongoing lab fees vary considerably depending on your condition, progress and health insurance.
How do I know if this is right for me?
I personally speak to each person who schedules a consultation. If I don’t feel my program will help you, or if your condition is out of the scope of my practice I will tell you right away and do my best to point you in the right direction.
Important: If you are suffering with a chronic illness and have a medical diagnosis, I require that you be under the care of a licensed medical practitioner while implementing my lifestyle program. If you do not have a licensed medical practitioner on your team I will help you find one in your area.
Low Income Solutions
If you cannot afford my fees I may be able to offer you a sliding scale based on your income. Once a month I offer low cost group consultations. Please call my office to inquire.
