We invite all new patients to commit to 3 Month Guided Plans including 6 visits:
- Deep Health History – gathering environmental, genetic, lifestyle, dietary and other factors that affect your wellness.
- 1 New patient (90-min.) visit with Kristen Brown, Functional Medicine ARNP-C, to review your Deep Health History and begin crafting your personal health plan.
- 5 follow up visits. These vital one-on-one times allow for in-depth explanation of lab results, tracking treatment progress, and tailoring your personal health plan. These visits also give you a chance to explore powerful lifestyle therapies like nutrition, exercise, sleep and stress management. We “teach as we treat” so you gain personalized insight and wisdom for your health journey.
A la carte services are also available but we find that guidance in the first three months of care provides a fine-tuned health plan and a better health outcome. All new patient visits are done in person at our Washington office to establish the patient-provider relationship with Kristen Brown, ARNP-C, Functional Medicine Nurse Practitioner. You’ll work together to dig deep into your health history, order relevant tests, build your personal health plan, and find the root cause. After your first visit you may mix telehealth follow ups or in-person visits.

- Conventional Lab Testing:
These tests are often used in Western medicine practice to measure things like cholesterol, vitamin D and thyroid function. Altheda Health goes above and beyond conventional care. We thoroughly investigate for root causes, order more detailed lab testing, and plan the time with patients to carefully interpret lab results using your unique health factors, rather than simply checking results against generic ranges of acceptability. Learn about our exclusive discounts on conventional lab tests.
- Functional Medicine Lab Testing:
These tests (saliva tests, hair sample tests, adrenal tests, genetic tests, stool tests, etc) are not typically done by your primary care provider. We use high-quality, cutting-edge functional medicine lab tests to get the most accurate information about how your body is working and to uncover the root cause of your illness. These tests may or may not be covered by your insurance company. See our FAQs for more information.
