Are You Looking For a Smarter Approach to Your Health?

Let’s work together to restore your vitality by developing a personalized strategy that puts you back in charge of your health.

Choose the program that’s right for you…

Tired of feeling dismissed and unheard?

We provide a plan, a partnership, and a promise to get to the root causes of your health concerns so you can restore your health for good!

Do you ever wish that your healthcare provider would take the time to listen to your story and actually hear what you have to say? If you’re not being heard, how can you ever hope to achieve the health you want and deserve?

We believe that both the problem and the solution to your health issues are contained within your story, so we start by listening attentively in order to determine how to best serve your needs. This saves you precious time and money – neither of which you can afford to waste when you’re not well.

Our recommendations will include the most appropriate functional lab testing, nutritional and lifestyle upgrades, mindset transformations, and necessary supplement support.

Introducing…The EMPOWER U Method

Your Personalized Health Optimization Strategy To Address The Root Cause Of Your Symptoms & Restore Your Health

“Can the EMPOWER U Method Help Me With _______?”

Our approach is centered around identifying and resolving the root cause(s) of your health concerns instead of treating symptoms alone. This requires a comprehensive approach and investigating hidden triggers for dysfunction (nutrient deficiencies, poor digestive health, hormonal imbalances, and chronic infections to name a few) as well as providing the nutrition and lifestyle education you need to create a solid foundation to rebuild your health.

We start by listening carefully to your story. Your experience combined with your health history, and physical exam help us identify the causes of your health concerns.

In addition, we use functional lab testing to identify root causes that cannot be identified from a thorough history and physical exam alone. The results of these specialized tests help us eliminate blind spots and personalize your treatment.

This approach, paired with building healthy habits, education, and support puts you in charge of your health.

We help our patients become their own health advocates. Our goal is always centered around restoring vitality, not just the absence of symptoms and dis-ease. We believe that a diagnosis can never paint the full picture of what is going on and only limit intervention options.  While two people may have the same diagnosis, how they got there and how to restore their health will be very different.

We pride ourselves in Personalized Root Cause Medicine, thus it is never our intention to “treat” any condition that our patients present with. It is our goal to reverse engineer a patient’s presentation by removing whatever is interfering with their health and add what is missing. 

While it is not our intention to treat a diagnosis, these are some of the most common conditions seen and treated by our care team:

  • Autoimmune disease (MS, RA, Celiac, Type 1 Diabetes, Hashimoto’s, Psoriasis, etc)
  • Digestive disorders (IBS, SIBO, Crohn’s, Colitis, heartburn
  • Difficult weight loss
  • Hormone and endocrine imbalances (Thyroid disease, PMS, hot flashes, PCOS)
  • Infertility and irregular menstrual cycles
  • Joint pain and stiffness
  • Diabetes and metabolic syndrome
  • Chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia
  • Adrenal imbalances
  • Cognitive decline (brain fog, poor memory, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s)

A Detailed Look At The EMPOWER U MET

5 Naturopathic Functional Medicine Myths Debunked

Myth # 1 – I’ve tried “everything”

This is a phrase that we hear over and over on our discovery calls. Many patients feel like they’ve done everything that they can to get better. Within a few short minutes, it’s clear that there were many stones still left unturned. When a person submits to having “tried everything” they subconsciously submit to the idea that nothing more can be done. Most people we speak to have never had functional lab testing, an emotional analysis, or assessment of their living space. This is where we feel most illness stems from. Chances are there are many aspects of your health that have not been fully explored.

Myth # 2 – If this worked, my doctor would know about it

Allopathic medicine operates out of a completely different paradigm than Functional Medicine. Western medicine focuses on the name of the disease and takes a symptom based, one size fits all approach. Functional Medicine is more focused on the root causes of your health issues and provides a personalized plan. We believe that a combination of both approaches is best for our patients. Due to this difference in paradigms, your allopathic doctor will be more educated in acute interventions to help you feel better, whereas, a Functional Medicine approach will be more focused on helping you actually get better.

Myth # 3 – I don’t have time

Time is your most important asset. We believe that being healthy will free up more time for you to do the things you enjoy most. Our goal is to make time work for you instead of against you. When you have clear direction, every passing day moves you closer to a better life. This is why we offer the option and convenience of telephone and video consultations. Thanks to the level of support we offer and because our programs teach you a life skill, you will save hundreds hours of online research, time wasted in doctor’s waiting rooms, and add healthy years to your life.

Myth # 4 – Functional Medicine is expensive

This is the biggest misconception about Functional Medicine. In reality, it is the most affordable form of healthcare on the planet. In fact, insurance companies and governments are now running pilot projects to demonstrate the significant cost savings to both patients and healthcare systems using a Functional Medicine model. It’s always important to recognize the true cost of services that are rendered. Just because something is covered does not make it cheaper. In fact, our average autoimmune patient saves over thousands of dollars each year in medical expenses. It’s also important to note that Functional Medicine teaches you a liberating life skill which makes your care cheaper over time versus the allopathic model which gets more and more expensive over time (more testing, more medications, more scans) all while not teaching you a life skill or addressing the root cause.

Myth # 5 – I can figure this out on my own

We live in an information era. This means that you have access to all the world’s information at your fingertips. What you don’t have is information about yourself. This is the missing link in your healing. By having a trained team ask you the right questions and do the right testing, you will have much deeper insights into your personal health challenges and how to overcome them. Functional lab testing clues you into information that you or your doctor would never know otherwise. Our goal when partnering with you is to help identify the root cause of your health problems, teach you the appropriate life skills you need to remedy them, and support you as needed. Self-navigating through the sea of conflicting information ends up costing you both your health and your sanity.

What Our Patients Have To Say

Janice

“I Finally Feel Myself Again”

Dr. Kristijana, thank you for all your support over the past 9 months. It’s been a journey that I am so glad I got to experience with your guidance. I have discovered so much about my body, it’s been such a gift to work with you. I’m filled with the utmost joy and gratitude. Thank you!

Jane

“I feel like a whole new person”

I came to Dr. K Guiding Wellness at such a low point in my life, with all traditional doctors declaring “It’s in your head!” Once I connected with the team at Dr. K Guiding Wellness, everything changed! Dr. Kristijana had an step-by-step action plan for me, starting with a nutritional evaluation and some focused lab testing. I literally feel like a whole new person from the inside out.

Jennifer

“My Life Has Been Transformed”

Dr. Kristijana, you have transformed my life! From our very first interaction, everything was decidedly different from any other medical provider that I worked with in the past. Your caring attitude came through everything I experienced… I can’t recommend enough the team at Dr. K Guiding Wellness!

Frequently Asked Questions

Can we work together remotely?

Yes! With the exception of a blood draw (if necessary) all lab test kits can be mailed to you and performed in the privacy of your own home, then mailed back to the lab along with your sample(s). Once we receive your results from the lab, we will email you a brief video interpretation of your results followed by a one-hour appointment to go over them in greater detail. Appointments with any Dr. K Guiding Wellness team member can be done from the comfort of your own home or office via phone, Zoom, or Skype from virtually anywhere in the world.

Is lab testing necessary for the program?

Yes! Labs are a vital part of the process in uncovering hidden malfunctions, discovering healing opportunities, and getting to the root cause of your health issues. Without the data and information that labs provide us, we would just be guessing what’s wrong with you. We don’t guess…we test.

How much do lab fees cost?

We will determine which lab test(s) will be necessary during our initial discovery session and will depend upon the information discussed at that time. On average, you can expect to spend between $200 to $1,200 for initial testing. In some cases, follow-up testing may be advisable to monitor things such as hormone balancing or the eradication of a gut pathogen. Regardless of how much you pay in lab fees, we’ve made every effort to ensure that you’re receiving direct-lab wholesale pricing on all lab tests.

Do you offer financing?

No, we do not offer financing. Your health care insurance may cover some of our services and suggested lab testing. The cost of any services provided by Dr. K Guiding Wellness will be billed to you directly. You are responsible for submitting your insurance claims.

Do you offer a family discount?

Yes! We offer a 10% discount for each immediate family member (spouse and children under 18.)

How long does it take to heal?

There are many factors involved in determining how long it will take for an individual to heal, such as your level of participation and commitment, your individual health issues, and your current state of vitality. It’s important to understand that it’s not reasonable to expect to undo decades of damage in just a few weeks. We do not believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to healing, because we’re all unique individuals with different histories, abilities, lifestyles, and needs. This means the healing process will be as unique as you and we like to allow it to unfold naturally as your body permits. No matter how long it takes, our entire team is here to support you throughout your healing journey.

Can we continue working together when the program is over?

Yes! While we endeavor to provide you with everything you need to become liberated from the “symptom-management” system, many patients come to realize that a healthy mind, body, and spirit is priceless. As such, they find comfort and value in continuing with ongoing support from our team. Whether you choose to adopt a proactive approach to maintaining your health, or if you require additional support after your program is complete, we make it easy and affordable for you with a few options. Our goal is to provide the right amount of support to facilitate your goals.

Regardless of what you choose, you have lifetime access to our interactive online Dr. K Guiding Wellness Community with thousands of other heart-centered health-seekers, as well as our online self-care courses.
