Schedule your Follow-up appointment Now!
An initial visit as a new patient will take up to 1.5 hours. During this time you and the doctor will cover all aspects of your health and lifestyle practices. Follow up visits are typically 15-60 minutes, depending on the complexity.
Please have your pharmacy fax us a refill request and we will return the approval from your doctor within the next business day.
You can conveniently order supplements on our online store or at our in-office checkout. Your supplements will then be shipped directly to you.
- In the case of any medical emergency, you should always dial 911, visit an emergency room or urgent care facility.
- For non-urgent matters pertaining to your previous visit or treatment plan, you can call us during our business hours or send us a short message through your Patient Portal and we will get back to you as soon as possible (usually within two business days). For messages for Dr. Stewart, please call the office or message Coleen, Dr. Stewart's assistant in your Patient Portal.
- For non-urgent matters regarding a new question or concern between your follow-up visits, do offer limited brief appointments. These questions often deserve more attention than a quick message reply. These brief appointments can be in-person, on video chat or on the phone for 5-15 minutes. This allows time for your doctor to review your chart and fully answer your question in-between your follow-up appointments. Reading and responding to long messages takes us away from our scheduled patients so thank you for understanding and agreeing to our messaging policy.
- Nourish Medical Center offers convenient blood draws in-office for $35. Appointments are necessary to ensure adequate time dedicated for your lab tests, possible insurance discussions and test kit explanations.
- If you do not live nearby, there may be other options available, including visiting your local LabCorp or Quest for standard lab tests. Mobile phlebotomy services may also be an option when necessary.
- Nourish offers shipping for many of our functional test kits for you to complete at home.
Your labs can be viewed during or after your follow up consult in your Charm patient portal located HERE. For in-office consults, we often print you a copy of your lab results to take notes on. In urgent cases, you can call our office to review, sign and share your lab results ahead of time but we ask for you to reserve this request for urgent matters only. Sharing your lab results ahead of your scheduled follow up appointment does not provide a full interpretation or treatment plan so we always prefer to have your doctor review these with you.
During the initial treatment phase of your care, you can expect to see your doctor somewhere between every 3-7 weeks. When symptoms improve and health goals are met, visits are spread out to anywhere between 3-12 months.
Patients can experience the benefits of naturopathic care within days or months, depending on the nature and severity of the conditions being treated. Every patient is different and your dedication and commitment can determine the length of time it will take to experience the results of your treatment.
We charge a $50 cancellation fee if you cancel or reschedule within 48 hours of your scheduled appointment time. If we are not in the office to make a change to your appointment, please leave us a voicemail or an email that we will receive on our next business day.
We can refund your money 100% for any unopened products. Products that have been opened are final sale. If you purchased your supplement from Fullscript, please contact them directly (866-807-3828) for returns.
An appointment is always required to see one of our doctors. Please call ahead and we may even have a time available day–of. We do offer walk-ins for vitamin injections for established patients. We recommend calling ahead to let us know that you are on your way.
A detox can be a safe and effective method for restoring the body's natural ability to heal. Because we are exposed to various toxins on a daily basis, it is important to help rid these toxins and restore our body's natural processes. We recommend doing some form of detoxification process twice per year. Please discuss with your doctor which detox program is right for you.
Prop 65 is a California law that requires a warning on any products containing qualifying levels of over 800 substances, such as pesticides, heavy metals, and even Vitamin A at certain levels.
The reason some products contain this warning is due to the presence of lead above 0.5 mcg per recommended daily dose per serving.
Lead in high amounts is absolutely dangerous and not advised. However, the highest per serving lead level found in any Nourish product is less than you might find in a 4oz. serving of lettuce!!
We use the purest ingredients available, but lead is everywhere in our environment and is impossible to avoid in many natural, plant based ingredients. That is because lead is found in the soil where the plants are grown and, therefore, it is present in virtually all plant-based products.
Examples of lead content of common foods are reported by U.S. FDA (these foods would require a Prop 65 warning if they were dietary supplements)
- Lettuce, leaf, raw (4oz) 1.59 mcg/serving
- Spinach, fresh/frozen, boiled (4oz) 7.03 mcg/serving
- Sweet potatoes, fresh, baked (4oz) 7.26 mcg/serving
That fact is – most foods found in the produce section of the grocery store, along with many other healthy foods such as nuts, fish, wine and many others – would require a Prop65 warning label if the law was uniformly enforced.
No! As the State of California’s own Proposition 65 website states, “A Proposition 65 warning does not necessarily mean a product is in violation of any product-safety standards or requirements.”
The FDA’s Recommended Safe and Tolerable Daily Diet Lead Intake for adults is 75mcg. This is 150 times the amount that requires a Prop 65 warning, and yet is considered safe by the U.S. FDA. The FDA has established 750mcg as the amount of lead that is known to cause health problems. This is 1,500 times the amount that requires a Prop 65 warning.
