Do We Take Insurance?

We can run some labs through insurance and when we can use your insurance we will! If you already have had labs run, we will also utilize wha you have. Unfortunately, insurance does not recognize root cause based approaches for labs and services. We do our best to contain the investment as much as possible. You should expect out of pocket investment for some labs and for all services. We can provide you bills with insurance coding (known as Superbills) for you to submit to your insurance company. We find a small percentage of our client can get reimbursed for these specialty labs and our services.

Why Do We Have Spouses At First Appointment?

If you have a spouse we do require that they attend the FIRST appointment. We have been doing this for 4 years now and understand that this is challenging for some people and appreciate you working through this challenge. There are two reasons for this. One is that we do see that people get best results when their spouse understands some of what we are doing in our work together. lo shows we remember about 7% of what we hear, so it becomes difficult to repeat all the information we share to your loved one. Secondly, we want to find a health solution that works into your financial budget too. Since couples tend to make these sorts of decisions together, we need everyone present. If you truly can make financial decisions of hundreds or sometimes even thousands of dollars without your spouse, then you are welcome to book on your own. Also know that we can have spouses call or video chat in so if they are not able to be in the location that you are, it is not a problem.

What Is Our Approach?

We work in a test not guess perspective. After taking a thorough history and looking at any labs you have already completed, we order additional labs to help fill in the missing pieces to your health puzzle. Then we work with a combination of food, lifestyle, and research based supplements, and natural protocols that are uniquely tailored to you and your lab results. We occasionally use pharmaceutical medicine, injection therapy, ozone, light therapy and other methods as well. Our philosophy in treatment is that we want to use what we feel is going to be most effective and have the least side effects for our clients. We work with people who are extremely sensitive to supplements and medications and know how to tailor and customize treatments for specific needs.

Do We Work With Children?

We LOVE children! Children respond so well to this sort of care and medicine. We work with ADHD, autism, PANS and PANDAS and all sorts of childhood conditions!

What Is The Investment?

The initial visit is $87. At this visit we we talk thoroughly so that we can get a very clear picture of what it will take both time and financially to get you from point A to Z (feeling like your best self). We want to give you as best of projection of the out of pocket investment as possible and make sure it works into your budget before moving forward which is why we keep this initial visit low.  We commonly see people spend $350-$450 a month on services but this is sometimes less and sometimes more. We encourage you to book this initial visit so we can put together a customized plan for you. In the rare case we cannot work with your budget, we will still give recommendations and labs and next steps that you can take to another office!

Can We Work With You If You Do Not Live Close?

We offer telemedicine and work with people all over the world. Distance is not a problem! We do offer in person sessions for those that are local to us in Colorado. But you do not have to come in person to work with us. 

How Are We Different

One of the things that makes us unique is that we are big picture minded in our approach. This means that if you have a certain condition such as fatigue, we will look in many areas of the body to find ALL of the root causes that are contributing to the fatigue. In regards to Lyme Disease and mold illness, in addition to working the microbes and toxins we also will strengthen the body so it can fight the infections more easily. In addition, we do not prescribe a "one size fits all" treatment plan. You are unique and so is your healing path.  If you are open to it, we also work with any toxic beliefs, thoughts and emotional patterns that could be part of the root of disease in addition to the physical root causes. 

Do We Work With Your Condition?

Our specialty is truly in getting to the root cause of a variety of conditions. The way we do this is by thoroughly testing organs, glands and tissues and by looking for a wide range of imbalances, deficiencies and infections. While we do have many people that seek our clinic for conditions such as Lyme, Mold, Gut and Autoimmune Disease,  we also treat a wide variety of disease processes including many things most people have not ever heard of. If you are interested in getting to the root cause, we can help!

Facts About Lyme Disease

Borrelia, the bacteria associated with Lyme disease can morph and change its shape allowing it to hide from the immune system.

It is important to both address the pathogen, any immune issues, and any imbalances in the body that the pathogen may have created. 

The complexity of this pathogen makes is important to work with a Lyme Literate Doctor. Lyme Literate Doctors understand this complexity.

Lyme Literate Doctors

It can be frustrating task to find a Lyme Literate Doctor. This is one reason why we not only work with people in the greater Denver area but with people all over the world. Medicine With Heart's Co-Founders, Dr. Diane and Dr. Miles have both survived chronic tick born infections that once plagued them with chronic fatigue, pain, fibromyalgia and more. They and their team know first hand how Lyme Disease is a disease that affects work, relationships, purpose and passion. 

We emphasize the importance of seeing lyme literate doctors because we feel strongly that lyme literate doctors are more up to date on the research and the treatment of lyme disease.

Body and Mind Root Cause Influences

What is a Herxheimer / Detox Reaction?

Herxheimer reactions are negative reactions to detoxification and the killing of pathogens. While sometimes herxheimer reactions are difficult to avoid as we learn how your body responds to specific and unique treatments, we want to avoid herxheimer reactions as much as possible. Some doctors encourage Lyme patients to take a year off of work and life because of intense detox reactions. Our philosophy is different. If your body is responding negatively to a treatment with Lyme Disease it is a sign that you are killing pathogens at a rate that your body is not able to detox the toxins that get released when Borrelia is dying.  This is inflammatory to the body and is important to minimize as much as possible.

Top Five Reasons for Herxheimer Reactions

  1. 1
    Too many toxins coming in
  2. 2
    Too few toxins going out
  3. 3
    NRF2 gene disruption: leads to lowered ability to detoxify
  4. 4
    MRP2 protein disruption: leads to lowered abilty to detoxify
  5. 5
    Phase I and Phase II detoxification imbalances
