4 Month Foundations Program


Looking back over 2o+ years of working in natural medicine, I realized that no matter what the issue or complaint was from client to client, there were a handful of things we did with almost everyone. Why? Because the fundamentals of human function are the fundamentals of human function. And while some clients really need highly customized approach that go beyond the fundamentals, others needed a lot less.

Structured Yet Flexible

The Foundations Program is perfect for someone who is generally well, but needs a few tweaks here and there as they seek to optimize their health and wellbeing. And while the framework of the Foundations Program is the same from person to person, we have built in enough flexibility to still individualize this program to fit you.

The Foundations Program includes 10 consultations, either in office or virtual, throughout the 4 months. The Foundations Program is driven by our Functional Nutritionist, and overseen by Dr. Noseworthy. Three of the ten visits will be hour long consults with Dr. N, at the beginning, middle and end of your program. The remaining 7 visits are scheduled with our Functional Nutrition Staff to guide you through the process.

Is This Approach Right For Me?

If you have already made some changes to your diet and lifestyle, perhaps taken some supplements too, but feel like you’re just missing something, and need help figuring that out, then this is the program for you.

The 4 months are broken down into three phases to cover the following fundamentals in our YOUniq sequence:

Diet and Inflammation Control
Blood Sugar Control
Adrenal Dysfunction
Gut Health

Remember that while we put all of our clients that fit into the Foundations Program through the same process, HOW we do that varies from person to person. So while this approach is more “preset” than our Truly YOUniq Program, it is still plenty flexible to meet your needs.


Test - Don't Guess

In today’s world of diagnostic testing there is an overwhelming number of options. But you can’t skip steps. That’s why the YW Foundations Diagnostic Strategy is based on assessing the fundamentals, which is best done with good blood labs, saliva and stool testing.

Are there other tests you could do? Sure. And we always allow for add-ons when necessary and agreed upon, but never at the expense of the basics.

  • Comprehensive Blood Work

    Functional blood chemistry analysis is the cornerstone of all our wellness programs.  Using both standard lab ranges, as well as ranges that are more specific to optimal wellness, we use blood labs to see where you stand with regards to energy systems, blood sugar control, liver and gallbladder, immune function, thyroid health, vitamin D, inflammation and more. We use national labs like Labcorp and Quest Diagnostics. If you are a client from outside the US let us know so we can make suitable arrangements for you.

  • Saliva Testing

    Adrenal function and hormone balance are best tested through saliva. We use 4 saliva samples taken at key times throughout the day to assess your stress response system (cortisol, DHEA and circadian rhythm) and to screen for the most common hormonal imbalances.

  • DNA-Based Stool Testing

    Your GI system is one of the main keys to health and wellness. It houses about 70% of your immune system and even a healthy gut has critters that are potentially harmful if not controlled. DNA-based stool testing has proven to be the most accurate way to find unwanted bacteria, fungal infections (including Candida), parasites and even intestinal viruses. Best of all – this test requires only a single sample, not two or three.

Comprehensive Blood Work

A full set of labs is indispensable to getting the right starting point.

  • Add-on Testing

    Every once in a while client needs just a little more. If we feel like you need some additional testing we will let you know what, why and answer any questions you have before we move forward.

  • Single Program Price

    Your investment in the Program, and your health, covers all of your consulting sessions, all of the background research and admin work we have to do behind the scenes, as well as a $900 allotment for nutritional supplementation.

  • 10 Appointments Over 4 Months

    Appointments are generally scheduled at predetermined intervals throughout the program. That way nothing slips through the cracks.

  • Appointments with Dr. Noseworthy

    Dr. Noseworthy oversees all Foundations Programs and makes the major decisions on how your Foundations Program “flows” from start to finish. Three of your 10 appointments are hour long consults with Dr. Noseworthy, placed strategically at the beginning, middle and end of your program.

  • Functional Nutrition Consulting

    Whitney, our Functional Nutritionist, curates the bulk of the Foundations Program. You will have frequent contact with her with 7 formal appointments scheduled to review your progress and to guide you through our YOUniq Wellness Foundations Curriculum.

  • Mobile App Keeps Us Connected Between Visits

    All of our programs come with that extra touch – with our mobile App (for Mac and Android phones) you have a direct line of communication with us in between your appointments. If you have a quick question, need clarification, or just want to say hi, you don’t have to wait for your next appointment to do so.

  • Supplement Starter Pack

    Your program investment also includes a Starter Pack of supplements that typically covers the first 2-3 months of supplements. After that is exhausted, supplements can be purchased on as as needed basis.

  • Lab Testing is NOT Included

    Some people have insurance and some don’t – we will work with you to see if your insurance covers the testing we need. And if not, or if you don’t have insurance, we can arrange the lowest price possible for you by having you pay for labs directly rather than through a middle man (us!)

  • The YW Foundations Curriculum

    Dr. Noseworthy has written extensive articles and guides to teach you what you need to know about how to handle the fundamentals. Available only to our Program Clients, the YOUniq Wellness educational curriculum provides you with additional information, education and empowerment that complements what we teach you in your consulting sessions.

  • Web Based Presentations and Webinars

    As a Foundations Program Client you will have access to a series of educational videos that cover more detail and other aspects of the topics we deal with in the Foundations Program. These videos were created and are taught/narrated by Dr. Noseworthy.

  • Don't Live in Florida?

    Distance doesn’t matter anymore. We were one of the first to start using Skype and online meetings to consult with clients long distance. So no matter if you are in Tampa or Taiwan we have you covered.
