My Truly YOUniq Wellness Program includes the same foundational elements as the 4-Month Foundations Program, but goes beyond that for a degree of customization that is truly YOUniq to you. So while we begin the process with comprehensive labs, saliva and stool testing, we craft a more detailed Diagnostic Strategy based on your history, the complexity of your situation and how aggressive you want to be in discovering what you need to change.
While it takes about 4-months to work through the foundational issues, the Truly YOUniq process can run anywhere from 8-12 months in total, all depending on the number, and types of issues we discover in your diagnostics.
Program lengths can vary quite a bit, but this is something we discuss in our Discovery Appointment – the initial consultation where we talk about your challenges, your goals and how you want to approach things. This is your show – we’re just here to help.
A Truly YOUniq Program includes consultations with both Dr. Noseworthy, and the YOUniq Wellness Nutritional Coaching Staff, either in office or virtual, throughout the program timeframe. The total number of visits is not set in stone, simply because in complex cases, setting an exact number of visits can be somewhat problematic. But as a general guideline we typically see a client an average of 2 visits per month, plus a couple of extra if needed. So a 5-month program would have 10-12 visits and so on.
Truly YOUniq Wellness Programs are divided into 2 main “stages”. The first half of the program is called the Active Stage, and this is where we do all the initial diagnostics, most of the diet and lifestyle coaching, as well as Dr. Noseworthy’s clinical sessions. The Active Stage is further subdivided into different phases, each with its own set of goals and priorities. Some Active Stage phases may be 3 weeks, others 8, or even 16 – again it all depends on you and the puzzle we are trying to solve.
The second half of the program is called the Maintenance and Monitoring Stage. This is where we have moved past the fundamentals, controlled those additional problems that are YOUniq to you, have helped you create metabolic control and stability, and are now touching base periodically to make sure you stick to your plan and continue to progress. Consultations in this stage are included (as long as you complete the Active Stage) and occur about every 6-8 weeks depending on your progress.
Dr. Noseworthy is more actively involved in the Truly YOUniq Programs compared to the Foundations Program, simply because there are more issues to sort out clinically, more tests to interpret and apply, and more education and oversight is usually required. And while there is no specific visit count, the appointments in the Truly YOUniq Program are typically evenly split between Dr. Noseworthy and the Nutrition Coaching Staff.
Is This Approach Right For Me?
If you have multiple symptoms across multiple system (meaning if feels like everything has hit the fan), have been diagnosed with, or suspect you have an autoimmune issue, hypothyroidism, Diabetes, Lyme’s Disease, mold toxicity, environmental reactivity and so on, then the Truly YOUniq Program is your best choice.
Here is a list of the types of problems that fit well here:
Depression and/or Anxiety
Head Injury and Concussion
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Chemical and Environmental Sensitivity
Any complex and chronic health challenge
In today’s world of diagnostic testing there is an overwhelming number of options. But you can’t skip steps. That’s why the Truly YOUniq Diagnostic Strategy begins with assessing the fundamentals (through blood labs, saliva and stool testing), but goes beyond to what makes sense for you.
Like other aspects of the Truly YOUniq approach, the Diagnostic Strategy is not set in stone and may branch out from the fundamentals to include one or more of the following:
