As mentioned above, depending on your history, symptoms, and any current lab results you may have brought with you, Dr. Ford will often recommend cutting-edge functional medicine laboratory testing.
These tests are often simple, at-home test kits involving saliva, urine, a simple cheek swab, a finger prick, or the collection of stool. Occasionally Dr. Ford will recommend a test that involves a blood draw, and she will tell you where you can go to get the sample drawn.
Testing costs vary and the range is from $300-$1000.00 per test, depending on the company and the type of testing being done. Dr. Ford only covers her expenses and does not profit off testing.
Dr. Ford does not write prescriptions, and instead uses the aforementioned targeted, physician-quality nutritional, botanical, and homeopathic supplements. She provides easy access to trusted distributors for the supplements she will recommend to you, and strongly suggests that you purchase from the provided resources so you can be assured that you are getting what you are paying for.
The monthly cost of supplements can range from $40.00 to $400.00, depending on the complexity of each individual case, how aggressive the client wants to be in their work toward recovery, and how much the client is willing to spend. Dr. Ford strongly believes that when it comes to supplements, quality is not something on which to compromise. She is happy to work with any budget and will make recommendations tailored to each client’s needs.
