Step 1

Attend an Orientation Meeting

Who should attend these meetings?

  • People who are curious about Functional Medicine

  • People seeking healing and wellness

Can you give me some examples of how functional medicine has helped others?
How could this approach benefit me?
What is involved?
Why is there a membership program?
What can I expect at my appointments?
Can I do anything on my own to get started?

PLEASE NOTE:  Attendance or viewing of one orientation meeting is a requirement to be seen as a patient.  It is important that you have an understanding of what is involved and how we can help you achieve your health goals.  


Future meeting dates will be posted as soon as Covid compliance requirements change. 


Step 2

Questions & Answers 

Does The Balsam Institute for Healing accept insurance?
Unfortunately, No.  Establishing a cash base practice is the only way to keep the costs low enough for people to afford.
The Functional Medicine approach to healthcare is not recognized by most insurance companies yet.  Visit with your insurance company as some will reimburse your expenses.  Additionally, if The Balsam Institute accepted insurance, we would need to hire several additional staff members to process those claims. This would cause the fees to increase dramatically. 


What are the costs involved?
The initial consultation fee for individuals is $675.  This includes your initial lab charges, initial consultation with a practitioner and consultation with a nutritionist.  A monthly membership fee of $99 is due starting the following month.  As a member, you have access to the Far Infrared Sauna, Adaptive Exercise with Oxygen Therapy (EWOT), Ozone Sauna, online resources, nutritional counsel and communication with your practitioner.  All follow up appointments are included in your membership dues.  Additionally, you will have access to stem cell therapy and other ozone therapies for a fee.  Couples and Family membership programs available. 


Why have a membership program?

​The path to wellness is not necessarily an easy path to walk.  You will have questions along the way and will also need specific resources to enhance your healing.  The Balsam Institute for Healing offers to partner with you during your healing process by providing you with the resources you need to accomplish your health goals.


What can I expect at my appointments?
​Your initial appointment will last 2+ hours depending on your health history, current health status and goals.  At that time, you will be given resources to start Phase 1 of your healing process.  Your next appointment is usually scheduled for 3 months.  In between appointments, you will have access to tools such as EWOT (exercise with oxygen therapy), far infrared sauna and Ozone Sauna therapy to aid in healing.  Members will also have access to online resources such as recipes and other supportive aids to help you implement your new lifestyle. 

How long will this process take?
​That depends on your current health status and your goals.  As all diseases are linked to gut health, the restoration of a healthy gut is the first step to wellness.  Once your gut health has been restored, we can work on resolving other health issues that my have been hidden by previous illness. 


Step 3

Make an appointment with a practitioner!

When you call to make an appointment, you will be guided to our online patient portal through Power2Patient.   This is your patient chart with us where you can communicate with your practitioner and refill your medications.  Before your first appointment you will be asked to complete an extensive medical questionnaire in your patient portal and get some blood work done.  (The laboratory charges are included in your initial consultation fee.)  Your online questionnaire and blood work need to be completed at least 5 days before your initial consultation. Results will be discussed at that time. 


Step 4

Start Phase 1

During your initial consultation you will be given the resources and guidance to start Phase 1 of the healing process. We are here to equip you every step of the way.  Here are some of the resources available to aid you along your health journey.
