HOW IT WORKS
I'm Ready! How Do I get Started?
Fill out the form to set up a intro call
During this FREE 15 minute intro call we will use the time together to chat about your health history and goals to make sure we are good fit for one another. I consider my clients friends and I want to make sure we both feel comfortable moving forward as a team. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and by the end of the call you will have a clear picture of what it would look like to work together over the next 4 months.
Sign up for your package
You have had your intro call and now it’s time to sign up and get started! Woohoo! Once you sign up you will receive a few emails from my client portal Practice Better. Make sure you log into the portal and send me your home address so I can get your lab collection kits out via snail mail. In the portal you will find all your paperwork and the food and mood journal that I will ask you to fill out for 5 consecutive days before our first session together. You will also have immediate access to the educational modules so you can nerd out and get started implementing everything you have learned before our initial consult. Labs typically take about 4 weeks from the time I send them out to when I receive the results back so expect our initial session to be about 4 weeks from the day you sign up.
Your 4 month package starts the day of our initial consultation.
Laura is certified and trained by Restorative Wellness Solutions to offer labs in her practice. These labs are used to detect imbalances in the body. Lab testing is used to determine areas of dysfunction and is not used to diagnose and treat disease. Lab testing reveals nutritional deficiencies and weaknesses in the body that can help guide the process of rebalancing. Laura is not a doctor and does not diagnose or treat disease.
***Labs are available to clients only, we do not offer labs to the general public. We are unable to ship labs to NY, Nj, and RI.
The Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA) provides insight into the very foundation of your health – your mineral levels. The HTMA report includes mineral ratios, individual mineral levels, insight into the function of your thyroid (the conductor of your metabolism), your adrenal glands, and some hormonal patterns.
Full panel includes: C-Reactive Protein (CRP), High Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein (CRP), Quantitative Complete Blood Count (CBC) With Differential Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP-14) Ferritin Gamma-Glutamyl Transferase (GGT) Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) Homocyst(e)ine Insulin Iron and Total Iron-binding Capacity (TIBC) Lactic Acid Dehydrogenase (LD / LDH) Lipid Panel + VLDL + Non-HDL Cholesterol + TC/HDL Ratio Magnesium Phosphorus Uric Acid Vitamin D, 25-Hydroxy
Full Thyroid Panel: Reverse T3 Thyroid Antibodies (Thyroglobulin Antibody + Thyroid Peroxidase (TPO) Antibody) Thyroid-stimulating Hormone (TSH) Thyroxine (T4) Thyroxine (T4), Free, Direct Triiodothyronine (T3) Triiodothyronine (T3), Free
A GI Map allows us to look at numerous important markers that help us determine the health of your gut, and even hormones. This comprehensive stool test will confirm if you are dealing with common bacterial or fungal overgrowths such as H. Pylori or Candida, and can indicate if you have parasites, gluten sensitivity, inflammation, and more. The GI map can even provide insight into the function of your estrogen detoxification, through a marker known as b-glucaronidase. I recommend this test for anyone who may be dealing with GI discomfort and dysbiosis such as bloating, gas, constipation, diarrhea, pain, cramping, etc.
The DUTCH Complete Hormone Panel is a comprehensive analysis of adrenal and sex hormones (estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone) and their metabolites. The results also include cortisol patterns, organic acids (such as Vitamin B6 and B12), and melatonin. The DUTCH allows us to take a in-depth look at your estrogen, and whether or not your estrogen is breaking down a healthy or unhealthy (cancerous) path, which is critical in healing estrogen dominance.
“It has been a wonderful experience working with Laura, I deeply appreciate how knowledgable and thorough her work is. I finally have answers to symptoms I’ve been experiencing for years, and I have faith that I can truly heal now. Having these invaluable resources that spell out exactly what my body needs is so relieving, and I will always be grateful that I crossed paths with Laura! “
“I have been working with Laura since June of 2020 and I am SO happy I found her! Let’s just say I have a pretty complicated case and Laura has been so amazing in helping me figure out what’s going on and guiding me on how to heal. She has so much knowledge! I’ve worked with doctors, nutritionists, and health coaches but no one has taken the time to research my case the way she has. I trust her 100% and I highly recommend working with her. Whether you’ve got health issues going on or you simply just want to know what the heck you’re supposed to eat- she’s got you. Thank you Laura!”
” Laura really helped as a sounding board for me AND really pushed me to do the things that I knew I needed to do deep inside, but I wouldn’t have done without her encouragement and explanations about WHY! If you’re someone who questions the process a lot, you probably need Laura!”
“Laura Lyons has been a life saver for me and my health! I was diagnosed with “livedoid vasculopathy” which is a better term for “I don’t know what’s wrong with your skin, so take some steroids and hopefully you’ll get well!” After reaching out to Laura and trusting that she could help me when the medical doctors couldn’t, she thoroughly went through my health history. She guided me in the right direction to figure out the root cause of my skin and pain issues in my lower legs by doing a GI map and HTMA test. I was overwhelmed at this point because my legs were extremely painful, and the ulcerations kept popping up from my knees down. After the testing results were back, Laura made everything so clear and simple to follow. She created a protocol for me to follow and taught me a TON about nutrition. She gave me courage and was always there to communicate with me if I had any questions. She never left me in the dark or forgot to respond like a lot of the doctors do. The “doctors” did not know what to do for me besides prescribe a drug to mask my issues, but Laura did. She never batted an eye at my rare case. Today, 6 months later after my initial testing and the start of my gut protocol, I am pain and ulceration free. I will forever be thankful for Laura! The scars continue to heal, and I feel amazing!”
“Laura is a natural healer. She has truly been blessed with the ear + intellect for nutritional wellness and healing. Years before she even opened her practice, she helped me to dissipate my chronic constipation simply by recommending magnesium (& the brand – which is also key). As a result, not only did that small gesture significantly improve my life, but her advice carried over to my father’s as well.
I have struggled since a teenager with chronic pelvic pain as a result of endometriosis and with regulating my hormones as a result of the long terms effect of birth control as a western medicine’s “treatment” for the disease. Now that I am 30, and trying to to start a family, the withdrawals of my body no longer being able to reply on birth control have left my system, fertility, and spirit in havoc. Birth control just hid the issues, but was never truly healing me.
Laura totally understood. It was a such a relief. She knew what to do, guided me to how to reset my gut to help regulate of lot of these issues. As a result, I feel more and more like myself everyday! Since hiring her as my NTP, Laura has helped my to balance my hormones, regulate my sleeps, reduce my anxiety, and control my adult acne! It’s insane to think it was all connected to the gut, but she made me a believer.
Most importantly though, Laura listened and she cared. From day one I could tell she was genuinely committed to making me feel like my best self again! If you are ready to commit to feeling like your best self, Laura can make that happen. If that voice in your head is telling you it’s time for a change, and your pretty confident you want to take that chance, do it! Your inner voice is right. I promise committing to her as an NTP will be one of the best decisions you could ever make for your health. Thank you Laura from the bottom of my heart!”
