At the moment, we have limited availability for New Client appointments. It may be necessary to place your New Client appointment request on a waiting list.
However, because of the limited availability and the reality that not everyone faces the same health challenges, Dr. Powers has made available some exciting additional healthcare options.
Dr. Powers is committed to providing affordable and effective care and believes that there is always then next best “safe” and “proven” step to take to assist you in feeling and functioning your very best.
In his dedication to natural health solutions through research, education, support and guidance, Dr. Powers has created these options to assist more people in getting and staying well, as there is no "one size fits all" approach to care.
These new options now include some Self-Care guidance Dr. Powers has outlined which opens up the opportunity to begin supporting your own healing right away.
If you are still interested in an appointment with Dr. Powers, we ask that you please take some time to review the paragraph below entitled "Healthcare Options" that describes the various levels of care available to you - including Self-Care steps you can take immediately.
After your review, let us know which level of support you are looking for at this time. By clarifying this, Dr. Powers can focus on the support you want and that best suits your healthcare needs and budget.
Please be aware that if you choose the "Customized Support" healthcare option, we have the fewest available openings at the moment for this level of care and it could 8 weeks or more before an appointment is available.
As soon as we hear back from you, we will offer you the very next appointment available for the healthcare option you chose.
Thank you so much for your patience, and we look forward to assisting you in feeling and functioning your very best!

How? Dr. Powers utilizes a holistic, Functional Medicine “model” to assisting people in getting and staying well. This approach focuses on uncovering the underlying (and often undiscovered) causes of chronic health challenges.
Once revealed, Dr. Powers then offers wholesome, evidence-based solutions that naturally resolve those issues.
With Dr. Powers’ insightful guidance and your “ready-and-willingness-to-get-well” commitment, much can be accomplished to promote your healing and restore function to your body.
The 3-step approach to health and healing
(1) Discover the CAUSES of your health challenges:
- What is missing ... that your body needs? Identify what your body needs to better heal and repair itself (e.g., nutrient replenishment; more restorative sleep; proper exercise; etc.)
- What is in the way ... of your healing? Reveal anything that is interfering with your body’s ability to heal (e.g., unmanaged stress; excessive toxicity; hormonal imbalances; chronic infection, etc.).
"Clues" that reveal what is sabotaging your health are gathered through the use of:
- Comprehensive medical, health, diet and lifestyle histories
- Holistic physical examination findings
- Conventional and Functional Medicine testing.
(2) Facilitate your healing by utilizing:
- Personalized dietary and lifestyle health-coaching & education
- Pharmaceutical-grade nutritional supplementation & natural medicine
- Safe & effective treatment options (including referrals, as indicated).
(3) Monitor and support your progress by:
- Answering questions and trouble-shooting breakdowns
- Re-testing key biomarkers and abnormal test results
- Adjusting your nutritional and natural medicine prescription.
Your on-going education as to what truly creates health in your body plays a key role in achieving your health goals
Therefore, after the strategy to promote your healing has been reviewed with you, you will be supported, coached and provided with on-going assistance in implementing the new habits and lifestyle changes into your daily routine.
This is accomplished through health-coaching and support during private consultation with Dr. Powers, as well as through classes and courses he offers online and/or in class format.

Dr. Powers is now offering three different options for his clients. Please read through these carefully to determine what level of care you feel you need at this time.
After you have read through the material and are ready to request your New Client appointment, be sure to indicate on the form in the appropriate box which level of care you desire at this time: Customized, Personalized or Foundational.
Customized Support – optimal healthcare to get well (assistance with a health issue), and/or to stay well (help prevent disease), and includes both consultation and testing services.
Personalized Support – supportive healthcare (consultation only) best suited for more recent limited health issues, or for those with more complex challenges who are not yet ready or able to schedule any testing.
Foundational Support – provides Self-Care support (no consultation or testing) to facilitate healing and lay the foundation for getting and staying well, including:
Valuable daily supplementation to begin filling common nutritional dietary “gaps”
General, yet powerful fundamental diet and lifestyle recommendations (provided with initial supplement purchase of Dr. Powers BASICS or Dr. Powers ESSENTIALS) to help ensure you are eating, moving, and sleeping in ways that are productive and practical.
If after reviewing the details of your healthcare options you feel you cannot afford the level of support best matched to your health needs and goals, know that receiving any level of care will help encourage your healing and support your health goals over time.
Both the Customized and Personalized Support appointments for New Clients require a $150 deposit to reserve your appointment, as a substantial amount of time is being set aside for this visit. The deposit is applied toward your balance due on the day of your appointment.
Once you have reserved your New Client Appointment with your deposit we require 7-days notice if you decide to change or cancel your appointment; otherwise you will forfeit your $150 deposit.
Most people seeking care have chronic or recurring, and often multiple health challenges and/or diagnoses. To adequately and effectively reveal the underlying causes in these cases, a combination of testing procedures are necessary.
Fees for this level of testing generally range from $895 and up - depending on any specialized “send-out” testing that may be indicated and recommended for you, e.g., gluten/food sensitivity testing; hormonal testing; gut/digestive testing; etc.
That said, there is much that can be done with minimal testing, particularly for less complex/chronic conditions. Ultimately, you decide what level of evaluation you feel is best for you based on how urgent you feel your health needs are, as well as considering your financial resources.

(right diet; proper exercise; restorative sleep)
and less of what it doesn’t,
(toxic burden; unmanaged stress; chronic infection)
you’ll get more of what YOU want
(vitality & vibrant health)
and less of what you don’t."
