your first visit, you will spend 45 (children) to 90 (adults) minutes with Dr.
Omana, it can be in person, by phone or Health Portal System (HIPPA approved).
During this 1-on-1 consultation, the specific condition will be directed to
deliver a result, a result that the client really wants. Dr. Omana will go over
your intake paperwork with you, gathering information on the history of your
illness, reviewing previous lab work done, getting a clear picture of your
current symptoms, and previous treatments and therapies you have done. She will
assess the function of your cells with a non-invasive ES-C scan (not suitable
for children under 12 years of age, during pregnancy or pacemaker
placement) yielding a printable report
(one copy for you and another copy for our file) to serve as a road map for
your health, this report includes a list of food sensitivities with foods that
you can and cannot eat for the next 30 days and a shopping list. We highly recommend repeating this scan every
30 days, but it can be optional according to your health improvement.
will also go over the medications and supplements that you take. Your
willingness to be fully open and honest during this time is very important –
the more honest you can be, the better we are able to help you. Your commitment
and determination to improve your health is a pivotal key for your balance.
the doctor obtains all the information, she will give you her clinical
impressions of your imbalances, and how she would like to approach your
specific imbalance. If she feels that lab work is necessary, she will outline
what she would like to run and the process for doing that. The program includes
a basic lab work. Additional labs will cost extra. Recommended as needed.
the doctor will develop a personalized program based on your imbalances. The
individualized protocol will include recommendations for your beginning stages
of improvement such as follow-up visits, nutrition modifications, lifestyle
factors, basic lab testing, emotional release, homeopathic, botanicals (herbs) and/
or other supplements. Dr. Omana provides support for questions through emails
phone calls or texting.
sometimes comprehensive protocols depend on lab results being in, she will
usually get you started on a program to get you feeling better right away.
up visits are anywhere from 2-4 weeks after the initial, depending on pending
lab work. These visits are shorter, 30 minutes for children and 45 minutes for
on your imbalance(s), the number of follow-up visits will vary from 5 to 10
according to the length of your program. During follow up consultations, the
doctor will ask you how you have been feeling since the previous visit; how
things might have changed with the health and protocol plan; and an outline of
what symptoms are better, which are worse/ new symptoms, and which are
unchanged. Having lists prepared for the doctor is tremendously helpful –
medication/ supplement lists, symptom lists and a list of questions you may
have for her. Proper follow up is the single most important aspect of your
treatment because it allows us to monitor your progress and change therapies as
necessary to ensure that your progression towards health is as quick and smooth
as possible. As your health improves, you will need less frequent follow-ups.
