Our symptoms don’t appear overnight. Maybe you are heading into perimenopause or are post-menopausal and don’t like the changes you are experiencing. Or perhaps you’ve been curating dis-ease for years with triggers that you have ignored and symptoms you have pushed-through in order to fulfill obligations. These triggers can be things like hormonal imbalance, chronic stress, prescription medications, food sensitivities, nutrient depletions, psychological trauma, or toxin exposure.
Creating sustainable change, creating balance in our physiology, and achieving optimal health during a new stage of life takes time. Enrolling in Membership is the key, as it allows constant support in your healing journey with private appointments, classes, group support, and curated resources targeted to your needs. I require a minimum of 3 months of membership, and you can cancel anytime after this.
The goal is simple: to graduate from this personalized program with a clear action plan for resolution and maintenance.
Membership pricing is based on how much private appointment time is needed per month. This correlates well with your need for support vs ability to tackle interventions independently and your MSQ (Medical Symptoms Questionnaire) score. An MSQ score below 25 is considered normal (though we can still work on specific symptoms you would like to improve).
Those people with higher scores have more symptoms, and typically will require more intensive care. If you don’t know your score, you can download and print an MSQ calculator here.
Ideal for those with MSQ > 70 and for women who are looking for an ongoing guide, coach and partner in their health journey for maximum support (minimum 3 month commitment)
As a functional healthcare provider, I see your body as a complex, interconnected system and look to discover and address the root causes of your symptoms to optimize your health. I do this by reviewing your in-depth intake forms, understanding your full history and current symptoms, utilizing targeted lab results, and then connecting the dots to make a personalized plan to decrease inflammation, improve hormonal and systemic balance, and build resilience throughout your body. Functional healthcare is a partnership between the provider and patient and you will get support via 1:1 visits and group coaching throughout your membership. We’ll employ multiple strategies including education, mindset work, lifestyle and diet changes, stress reduction modalities, sleep and energy interventions, supplementation where needed and other personalized interventions.
Excited to start?! Wonderful! Motivation is essential for success in any functional treatment plan. However, the magic and synergy comes from our ability to partner together. My style of teaching and delivery of medical care may not be a good fit for some people.
This is why I request a 20-minute Strategy Session before enrolling you as a private patient. The small fee for this phone call is donated to select local charities.
You can apply for a Strategy Session by filling out THIS FORM.
The functional healthcare model - where we address root causes of imbalance and inflammation - can be helpful for most people going through peri/menopause, experiencing local or systemic symptoms, living with diagnoses of chronic conditions, or who are eager to do everything they can to prevent health challenges in the future. These are the most common issues Lyssa Jaye, FNP addresses in her practice:
You would be a great fit for our Membership if:
I help you clarify exactly which vitamins or supplements you need (or don’t need). While much of your treatment momentum can be gained with customized instructions on food sources and lifestyle changes, many people require temporary (or long term) supplementation based on their hormonal status, microbiome imbalances, unique genetic limitations, digestion inefficiencies, or micronutrient deficiencies. In this case, I’ll provide you access to prescription quality supplements through my Fullscript dispensary where I have personally vetted companies that show the highest purity and 3rd party quality certification.
Since you are ordering them from my recommended prescription service, you will get discounted pricing. Every case is different, but plan to budget $200-300 for the cost of supplements during the first few months of recovery.
Positively Thriving is an “insurance-free” zone! This gives the greatest liberty to choose your best path to wellness without the restraint of red tape. There are no surprises, hidden costs, or worries about what might not be covered. All prices are transparent.
Many patients use their flex plan or HSA account to pay for services with me. I will provide a properly coded ICD-10 visit worksheet and itemized bill so you can submit this for reimbursement.
Your healthcare is a team effort, and Functional Medicine plays a different position on this “team.” My mission is to educate you on your body’s signals and help you reach your goals as an ongoing consultant. Typical results are achieved from 3-6 months of dedicated collaboration.
I require that all patients retain a primary care provider to handle ordering of important screening tests (like mammograms, pap smears, colonoscopies, etc). As a consultant, I do not provide urgent/same-day care that might require immediate assistance or hospitalization. If permitted, I’ll happily communicate our findings to your PCP to provide a seamless approach to your overall healthcare.
