One-on-one with Emily Anderson, APRN-CNS
In a 45-minute appointment with Emily, our nurse practitioner, you’ll explore your health history, where you stand today, and how we can come alongside you in your journey. Additionally, we will provide you with options for lab testing.
Run Labs, Get Results
Lab testing is essential for ensuring that we’re considering your case from all angles and approaching it correctly. In our women’s health and hormones journey, options presented may include advanced hormone testing such as the DUTCH test.
Analysis & Game Plan
Expert Analysis & Protocol Building
Labs are only as good as their expert interpretation. Our clinician will record a video walking you through the results step by step. A follow up appointment will be established so you can ask questions, gain insights, and reflect with an expert on your side.
Health Coaching or Individual Plan
You’ll leave your lab analysis appointment with expert insights in hand for you to consider. At this time, you can continue on with one of our trained health coaches or forge your own path. In the clinician-led journey, our health coaches are available to you on an unlimited basis for no additional fee.
What's the investment?
The initial consultation with Emily is $97. At the end of that evaluation, Emily will present some options for comprehensive lab testing. We consider lab testing to be an essential part of our process. The average lab testing package may range from $1100 – $3000.
Do you take my insurance?
Vitae Functional Medicine is a cash-based practice. We do not submit to insurance. We do offer third party financing options.
Will I be healed by the end of my journey?
Our goal is to ensure that you complete your journey farther down the road than where you started. Biochemical individuality makes it impossible for us to guarantee results. While one person may experience immediate positive momentum, another may have to work for months to reach the same place.
If you commit yourself to the journey, we believe you’re setting yourself up for great success.
What is functional medicine?
Functional medicine is a treatment approach that seeks the root cause of a disease rather than the symptoms that cause presents.
Like conventional medicine, we make use of medical-grade lab testing. However, the tests we run are often more comprehensive and we interpret them through the lens of functional medicine.
In the end, functional medicine is often labeled as a more holistic approach because we believe that the body doesn’t need help healing, it just needs no interference.
Do you see patients virtually?
We do offer virtual and in-person treatment options. In the event that your case calls for the usage of prescription medication, please note that Minnesota state law dictates you must be seen in person at least once annually.
In cases that do not call for Emily to serve as the prescribing physician, virtual care can be solely utilized.
How do you approach hormone replacement therapy?
Emily, our nurse practitioner, utilizes biologically identical hormone replacement therapy when appropriate for the case. When BHRT is utilized, it is done so in conjunction with other comprehensive treatment methodologies. You can’t plant a rose in a garden filled with weeds and expect results!
