FAQs


Background/Communication

Dr. Justin is not a medical doctor; he does not service medical emergencies, diagnose, treat or issue protocols for any specific diseases. If you have a medical emergency, you must contact your primary care physician or dial 911.

Dr. Justin supports chemical and physical stress imbalances, with the goal of promoting wellness.

We completely understand that many times, prioritizing a wellness plan requires major life changes. Our advice is to start one product at a time and take one day at a time. Often keeping a health journal allows one to stay on track and also shows the progression that we often forget when we need a little inspiration.

If you are feeling overwhelmed the best step is to schedule a consult asap to review progress and break up the next steps in your health journey into smaller chunks so you feel less overwhelmed.

If you are having any supplement reactions see the supplement reaction or die off reaction handout in the members area.

Depending on the type of test, the samples required are saliva, urine or stool. All tests are completed by the client through easy test kits that are self-administered in the comfort of your own home. Dr. Justin does not do any blood tests.

Dr. Justin has learned over many years that the accuracy of your lab findings and the quality of the professionals performing the lab tests is the key to you uncovering what’s going on. Quality is not equal across all lab companies. Many times we see “normal” test results from regular lab companies and our lab tests find many “functional” problems. The lab companies used by Dr. Justin have the highest testing standards and the most consistent lab results year after year. These are not replacements for regular medical tests, these tests are only used to detect “functional” issues rather than medical problems and aren’t meant to diagnose or recommend protocols for diseases. We are attempting to detect problems with the functioning of organ systems prior to the onset of a disease.

Dr. Justin carries his own line of high quality supplements which have been formulated to achieve the best results in the right specified dosages. These supplements are also stored in an air conditioned environment and come directly from the manufacturer.

If you want to do your own research on different supplements, you can do so but we do not recommend it. We do not provide any other recommendations nor advise on other specific blends or brands. If you purchase other supplements from other manufacturers, please research carefully. Not all ingredients are equal. There are many issues regarding supplements from Amazon and other sites being counterfeit.

We do not bill insurance companies; it is up to each individual to determine whether their insurance plan provides reimbursement for consultations, supplements and lab tests. With certain labs we help facilitate the lab company billing the patient’s insurance. If there are any issues with the billing, it is the patients responsibility to contact the lab to address the matter.

All patient invoices are super-bill coded and list CPT and diagnosis codes that you may submit to your insurance company. Our superbills provide the codes for consultations and lab tests. Most insurance companies will not reimburse for supplements. Please note that we cannot guarantee reimbursement. This will depend on your individual plan. HSA and flex savings account can be used for payment as well.

New Patient Consultations may be charged in full if the cancellation policy is not followed.

Scenario 1: Certain labs Dr. Justin runs are specialty labs and are purchased via cash. These cash based labs don’t have any additional lab read fees associated with them. Certain lab tests Dr. Justin orders, the lab company can help facilitate the billing of the insurance for the patient, which provides a savings. The lab read fee is designed to cover the cost of the extra time from Dr. Justin and administration from the staff to help provide this savings to the patient.

Scenario 2: If any labs are ordered outside of the office based on Dr. Justin’s recommendation and are brought back for him to review, a lab read fee will be charged.

Scenario 3: Dr. Justin recommends cash based labs as it is very difficult to ensure your insurance will cover certain labs. Cash labs ensure an exact cost, plus these labs come with super-bill receipts and can be submitted to insurance for potential reimbursement as well.

Supplement recommendations can range between $50 to $400 per month. Supplements are recommended specifically on a case by case basis depending on patients individual body system lab testing for the their hormones, digestion, infections, detox, and nutritional deficiencies. It’s also dependent on what phase of care the patient maybe in, as some phases of care overlap. This may occur like when infections are being addressed while supporting the adrenal and digestion.

The factors that can influence supplement recommendations also include the patient’s current diet, lifestyle, sleep, work and home stress. Other variables can include your age and how long you have been dealing with health challenges for.

Supplementation recommendation can also be adjusted to a patients budget. The biggest issue is making sure expectations are managed. The more health challenges a patient is currently dealing with may require more supplementation to help accelerate their healing.

Realistic expectations help patients to be more compliant on their health journey. If a patient is currently dealing with massive stress (work or relationship stress) that can’t be avoided at the time, our goals maybe more to prevent health decline than actually heal and improve ones health. Everyone’s at a different place in their health journey so Dr. J’s goal is to help meet a patient where they are at on their journey.

Program Overview

Functional Medicine, rather than targeting individual symptoms, focuses on the optimal functioning of the entire body and its organs. It addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach in partnership with understanding the conditions and history in which the disease manifested. Genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors all have a direct influence of long-term health and chronic health issues.

Dr. Justin’s Method is a functional medicine lab based health approach focused on addressing five common conditions – weight gain, fatigue, depression, female hormone and digestive problems – through restoring the 3 main body systems: hormones, digestion and detoxification.

Results vary by each person. Some people feel dramatic improvement within the first month, others may take a bit longer. Our standard programs are for a minimum of 6 months. Remember, your body didn’t fail overnight. Years of stress and illness takes its toll and it takes a proper amount of time to restore. On average it takes one month of repair for each year you’ve suffered from a specific problem.

Dr. Justin’s Method addresses the 5 most chronic symptoms of weight gain, fatigue, depression, hormone imbalances and digestive problems that are typically misunderstood/misdiagnosed by conventional medicine practitioners who attempt to address the symptoms, not the root cause/damaged system. Dr. Justin’s Method is a lab-based natural health protocol that tests and identifies the dysfunction of the 3 core main body systems. Typically these 3 main systems have become compromised long BEFORE the symptoms appeared. The lab tests are used to determine the required natural support needed to rebalance your body back to its normal state.

Dr. Justin’s adrenal protocol has been tested and proven with 10 years of clinical experience by over 2,000 patients. With that said, it depends on the diligence of each client in following their daily protocol and making lifestyle changes that only they can be responsible for implementing. Dr. Justin is committed to assisting and empowering his clients to take back their health and experience life changing results if they are committed to doing so as well.

Protocols

These are natural, plant based products that support and balance the adrenal glands and are combined into customized wellness plans based on individual lab results.

Depending on the results of your lab tests, Dr. Justin uses different combinations of DHEA, pregnenolone, and all of the herbs, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals required for adrenal recovery.

While retesting isn’t required, it is recommended that a client retest at the 6 month mark to measure improvement and adjust protocols if needed. Once a client has achieved their desired health results, we recommend annual testing to ensure your body systems continue functioning at their best.

Initial programs range anywhere from 3-6 months depending on the degree of your health condition.

The goal of the Justin Method is to mimic the body’s natural reproduction of its own hormones and we only use products that naturally occur in the body to restore your internal production of adrenal hormones.
