Nov. 2016 update
Nancy still works with Morgellons sufferers providing individually customized nutritional regimens based on the information from the results of The Great Plains Organic Acid test. From those results she formulates a protocol using homeopathic formulas, supplements and nutraceuticals.
If you are interested in working with Nancy the process begins with ordering the Organic Acid test.
Step 1. Go to: nancyguberti.com/services scroll to Functional Medicine Lab Tests and choose the Organic Acid Test (first one). The fee charged in Paypal will cover the cost of the test. (Nancy processes the specimen and sends it to the lab.) The test fee does not include: the skype/phone session with Nancy to go over the test results and personalized supplement regime & food recommendations.
The test kit with instructions will be mailed to the address you provide in PayPal. Once you order your test, you will be led to a Thank You page where you will see What's Next. This will give you access to the intake form, links and a calendar. When the test kit arrives you will then collect your first morning urine specimen and Fedex it back overnight to the address in the instructions.
Description of Organic Acid Test:
First morning urine test checks 74 important markers providing insight into one's cellular metabolic functioning allowing individual tailoring of nutritional interventions as opposed to guessing and taking any supplements and not absorbing one's food. Provides insight into intestinal health, specific dysbiosis markers for candida and microbial, mitochondrial energy production, methylation, detoxification, vitamin nutritional markers such as Vitamin C, B12, B6, B-Complex markers, CoQ10, neurotransmitter breakdown, amino acids (NAC and carnitine), oxidative damage, and fatty acids.
Note on Functional Medicine Lab Tests
Testing does not include interpretation or customized regime that Nancy creates. You will need to purchase Health Empowerment Session to schedule your one-on-one consult session with her to review your test results and your customized supplement regime (see Step 2).
All Sales Final – No Refund for Health Plan, Nutraceuticals, Lab Testing
Step 2. To schedule the Skype/phone session with Nancy go to: nancyguberti.com/services and choose Health Empowerment Session
which is a one-on-one private session (60 minutes) with her via Skype to review test results and personalized supplement regime & food recommendations
There is monthly membership (3 different levels) for anyone wanting continual health & mindset empowerment looking for support and accountability. This is explored after the initial session since there will be lots to do after reviewing the test results, but it’s nice to know it’s available. There is also monthly email support for anyone needing extra support. We can discuss if needed.
Ayla's two cents
When I started on my journey back to health, I did not understand the work of a nutritionist. I thought they only dealt with food. Nutritionists are medical professionals who seek to understand the cause of disease and address those systems in need of support through diet, nutrition, herbs and neutraceuticals. It's not just "Lose the sugar, lose the pizza."
Nancy's work may be more specific then other nutritionists because she utilizes the testing done in Functional Medicine. She entered the field by necessity because her young son became ill with a serious liver disease. In an effort to save his life, she went back to school to study nutrition and eventually was led to the testing she has since introduced to the Morgellons community. Not every nutritionist uses these tests, but for Nancy, who was digging as deeply as possible for answers, they became the most important tool in her kit, not only to help her child, but to help others.
She continues to study and work with specialty labs and fashions her tests so that the client gets the most bang for their buck. For the Morgellons community she has always recommended the Organic Acids (OATS) test from Metametrix and Great Plains Lab as well as the DNA stool test from Metametrix. If the client wishes to pursue further testing such as heavy metals, Lyme, etc. she will pursue those routes with them. Specific to Lyme testing, there is a lab that offers guaranteed balanced billing—which many practitioners may not even offer as an option. In this way she can be creative with lab costs.
It's important to recognize the work that Nancy does behind-the-scene on behalf of her clients. First, a 9-page intake evaluation is given to the client to fill out. Those with serious health issues often attach additional information and tests from other healthcare practitioners. Nancy reviews all of this material.
When the lab results come back, you and Nancy go over them and the custom protocol she's created. The client has a copy of the test results in front of them and together they go over each piece of information. This usually runs an hour.
Drawing up this spreadsheet usually takes 2-3 hours. Using algorithms, the labs recommend some supplements. Nancy has stressed that these algorithms know nothing about the person's current health issues or past medical history, so this is just a 'range' of supplement recommendations. If the practitioner reading the tests does not understand, or cannot interpret the results enough to make recommendations that fit the unique needs of the client, then it can create issues that exacerbate current health problems. So while Nancy takes note of the labs recommendations, she is looking at the whole picture both past and current and formulates a protocol that she feels would be the most effective approach to helping the client heal. The body is a very specialized 'machine,' as such, the protocol created is set up in stages to prepare and aclimate the body for the work ahead so that when new supplements are introduced, they have the greatest chance to be effectively absorbed.
When Nancy delivers the final package to her client, it contains the spreadsheet with back-up supporting health information. The protocol is broken down for the client in terms of what products to take throughout the day from awakening, breakfast, lunch, dinner and before bed. Nancy researches the products and their contents and gives a list of suppliers to purchase them from. She makes no commission from these suppliers. Is this still true? If not please edit. If you are now recommending homeopathic remedies that clients need to purchase from you, it should be mentioned here.
Last, Nancy provides email support to stay in touch with the client. She suggests checking in at least once a week to let her know what is going on and how they are doing. If questions arise, she is available to answer them. This is an important part of the process as too often practitioners send off their patients/clients with little follow-up support. Should I keep this paragraph in? Please edit if the info. has changed.
I'd like to offer a point of perspective. When I went looking for help, the only guidance I could find was to work with a Lyme specialist (even though I'm pretty sure I do not have Lyme). These specialists plus the other doctors of integrative medicine and infectious disease that I contacted, wanted between $600-900 just to walk into their door for a first visit. That is without the cost of any additional testing. From all my research on the internet, I realized that seeing a physician was a shot in the dark, that I could easily blow my money and get no help from a first visit. I have seen too many Morgellons sufferers go bankrupt taking that route. For what Nancy is offering, one receives her expertise and comes away with something solid to approach their healing.
As Nancy knows, I am extremely grateful to have her on my team. I do not know of anyone out there that puts this sort of effort into helping their clients. Besides the work she does on her clients behalf, she has done numerous blogtalk radio interviews and recorded conference calls with Pamela Crane in an effort to help the Morgellons community help themselves. I receive no monetary compensation for recommending her, I just feel that her effort on my behalf and her dedication to research and compassionate guidance to our group has been a real gift to all of us. I feel honored to know and work with her.
P.S. Her son is now a young adult doing wonderfully.
