How To Address Immediate Health Concerns And Future Wellness

Dr. Felty is here to partner with you to facilitate better health, for life. If you would like to detox, complete a cleanse, or tackle a health concern you have been dealing with, Dr. Felty can help.

First Office Consultation | $250

  • 90 minute evaluation discussing your health concerns, health goals, full medical, social, emotional, dietary and lifestyle history. All organ systems will be covered because Dr. Felty views the body as a whole and not in parts.

  • Depending on your presenting symptoms and history, Dr. Felty may suggest advanced lab testing not offered by primary care providers. The best way to discover what is going on is to conduct functional testing. Dr. Felty may suggest complete blood panels, micronutrient testing, hormone testing, stool or microbiome testing that can be done in your home or at a lab close to you. Lab test fees are not included and can range from $100 to $600.

  • You will receive an initial strategy to address immediate issues and long term strategy for future wellness. Strategies are recommendations to facilitate optimal health. Recommendations may include healing modalities like diet changes, fasting, exercise, meditation, nature, supplements, hydration, sleep, vitamins, counseling and lifestyle adjustments. Dr. Felty may recommend acupuncture, massage therapy, chiropractic care, physical therapy, energy healing, or another specialist that best suits your unique needs.

Follow-Up Consultation | $225

  • 60 minute follow up consultation reviewing lab work, recommendations and supplements, and discussing symptoms and updates since last visit.

  • At the start of the process of returning to optimal health, consultations are spaced at approximately every two to four weeks to track progress, review lab work, and provide counseling while implementing new lifestyle adjustments.

Dr. Felty works with acute and chronic conditions. Dr. Felty recognizes that healing must include more than biology and chemistry; it must include mental, emotional, physical and spiritual aspects. The future of healing is here and it does not come from a pill or machine, it comes in the form of a new doctor-patient relationship.

GLUTEN FREE EATING – A WAY OF LIFE

Last month the FDA released new label standards for gluten free labeling. Today, people without celiac disease are avoiding gluten for other health reasons. Some feel that gluten containing foods increase appetite, can cause bloating or gas, and may also cause blood sugar instability.  In practice, I have seen incredible results with everything from weight loss to autoimmune thyroid disease (Hashimoto’s) as well. With the new labeling standards in place, it made me think about the need for REAL foods that are naturally gluten free—no labels required. Here are two quick tips to make your gluten free life a little easier:

  1. Think outside the box when it comes to breakfast. Who says you can’t eat leftover chicken and broccoli for breakfast? More traditional options might be an apple with nut butter, smoothie packed with spinach, frozen raspberries and unsweetened almond milk, or an easy skillet with veggies such as asparagus, peppers and mushrooms and a couple of eggs.
  2. Snack smart. Reach for real food options: carrots and guacamole, pear and cashews or a tomato with goat cheese. Notice that all of these items include two important food groups—plants and protein. This combination of food keeps you full for longer due to the fiber and stabilizes your blood sugar due to the protein.

Simplify your gluten free life by sticking to foods naturally free of gluten: plant foods like vegetables and fruits, proteins from animals, fish, nuts and legumes, and oils. Eating gluten free is more about changing your lifestyle and habits, rather than following a trend or following a new “diet.”
