Healthy Sleep Workshop, SACRED MOUNTAIN HERBAL BLEND, and more!

I continue to take appointments for Pharmacogenomics and Nutrigenomics: DNA testing and consulting for how your genetics can affect your medication use, nutrition, movement, stress-response and more.  I greatly appreciate your positive response to this exciting new offering and great way to learn much more about yourself and your health and optimize your medication and nutrition options.

I am offering a workshop (1 hr)  this coming Thursday, October 22, 6pm MST.  The topic is Healthy Sleep,  Join us for a bit of sleep history, information on commonly prescribed medications, and natural and integrative methods for getting the best regenerating sleep possible.  Workshop fee is $15.   I look forward to seeing you!  You can register and save your space in this virtual and live seminar here:  Once you’ve registered, I will send you a link to participate.

Other news and offerings: I’ve created a light and energized Sacred Mountain Blend of detoxifying and adaptogenic herbs.  These formulations are very lightly dosed, energized through sound and light vibrations, as well as Reiki, and are designed to assist your energetic system adapt to the rapid shifts and changes in our world.  Sacred Mountain Blends will help consolidate your energy, ground you, and help you feel less frazzled, rest better, and feel more energized in general.  

To date, I’ve received great feedback from those who are trying the light blend.  Sacred Mountain Blend daytime formula also contains some tonic herbs, and the evening formula is less energizing and more harmonizing than the daytime formula.  
Price: Per 30 day bag of either formula (light and energized dosing):  $25.  For daytime and evening Sacred Mountain Blend (2 bags):  $40.  Delivered if in the Denver area, or they can be shipped for an additional fee.

I’m posting a link to my new Integrative Cardiac Rehabilitation meditation;  More integrative meditations to come, including custom meditations tailored to your specific concerns.
The COVID19 Recovery meditation is available for free and widespread use for all of those who are experiencing either acute or long-term post-viral symptoms.  Please share with those who may be interested.

I hope to “see” you on Thursday at the seminar.   Meanwhile, please have an amazing week and please let me know if and how I can be of service.

PharmacoGenomics and Nutrigenomics and You!

Greetings! It has been wonderful to carefully connect with those who are local and to return to safe acupuncture practice in the last couple of weeks. Thank you for your support in sharing my information in referral.

Today I’m sharing a bit more on Pharmacist and Integrative Wellness services I offer through LyonHeart Wellness.

Have you ever wondered how your genetics can be affecting your need for specific nutrition, exercise, stress reduction, and even your response or risk for adverse effects of pharmacological medications?

As part of my Lifestyle Modification and Medication Therapy Management services I now offer certified DNA testing (Nutrigenomics – NGx and Pharmacogenomics- PGx) and consultation with specific recommendations streamlined to your genetic results and overall lifestyle or medication goals.

What is Nutrigenomics (NGx)? The scientific study of the interaction of nutrition and genes, especially with regard to the prevention or treatment of disease. The NGx services through LyonHeart Wellness are integrated through Lifestyle Modification and Integrative Wellness appointments.

What is Pharmacogenomics (PGx)? The branch of genetics concerned with the way in which an individual’s genetic attributes affect the likely response to therapeutic pharmaceutical drugs. PGx services through LyonHeart Wellness are integrated through Medication Therapy Management for optimized drug therapy through precision medicine.

***Referrals to physicians, genetic counselors, nutritionists and other health care providers will be directed for all non-lifestyle modification, and non-medication-related genetic results.

How do I get tested and get the results and my individualized recommendations?
First, you schedule an initial consulting time with me to collect the sample via cheek swab. Together we will select which panel or panels are most appropriate for your specific questions and goals, and I will mail the sample to the lab for analysis. You will pay for the tests prior to my sending them to the lab. (Test kits are also available for drop-ship if you are not in the immediate area.)

The results are sent directly to LyonHeart Wellness when complete, usually within 2 weeks, and we will have a scheduled consultation to go over your results at which time I will provide analysis and specific recommendations based on your results and goals. Consultations are paid for at time of service, and can be completed in person, or via phone or video conference.

Find a few of the testing panels below (there are more).

An Update on Services through LyonHeart Wellness…

I sincerely hope this note finds you very well and healthy on all levels.  In these times with so many challenges and concerns, I offer the greatest energy, support, knowledge, coaching, and evidence-based integrative medical information through my services for all of us to navigate through the rapid changes.   I’ve recently returned to Colorado, in the West Denver area, after a several year journey on the Oregon Coast and am eager to reconnect and serve.

I am reaching out to update you on the services I have available both locally, safely, in-person, and virtually, via telephone or video, to those who are at a distance or local wishing to remain distanced.

For those who are local, I offer a Concierge Mobile Acupuncture (or Colorpuncture) services where I come to your residence or workplace for your treatment.  COVID19 Screening will be in place and all paperwork and most of each intake will be completed by phone or video the day prior in order to minimize close contact.  During the in-person portion of your appointment, I will wear a mask, and use gloves during your treatment, per the guidelines for acupuncture practice.  Outside of the West Denver Metro area, and still in Colorado, there is an additional travel fee.  If two or more of your immediate household members are treated in the same visit, then the travel fee is waived, and if within the West Metro Denver area, there is a small discount for all treatments for multiples.

Those of you who are local and wish to remain physically distant, and for those who are not local, even in other states, I have a variety of services available, including some exciting new offerings.

I am available for via telehealth, video conference and telephone for the following services:

Traditional Chinese Medicine Opportunities:

Self-care Acupressure Intake and Instruction, may include diagrams of points specific for your chief complaint.

Chinese Herbal Intake and Prescription Formulation – herbs are additional charge and can be delivered, if local, or mailed, if not.  Herb-drug interaction checks will be done for those who are taking pharmaceuticals, or even other herbs.

Integrative Pharmacist Services:

Medication Therapy Management (MTM) – Comprehensive and targeted medication reviews to help increase patient knowledge of medications, optimize therapy, increase adherence to medication regimens, reduce polypharmacy, and spot potential dangerous interactions amongst medications, supplements, disease states, and food.  MTM can also be directed toward prescription medication de-prescribing, or taper, of opioids, benzodiazepines, and other medications, always in collaboration with the prescriber(s).

Integrative Wellness Consults – Optimize your wellness through evidence-based integrative practices, including nutrition, activity, stress reduction, botanical, supplemental recommendations, and referrals based on your individual circumstances and health concern and possible current medication regimen.  Recommendations will be shared with your healthcare providers at your request.  This involves thorough intake, including all medications, supplements, emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of your life, implementing your individual health goals and interest and willingness to engage in integrative therapies to optimize wellbeing.

Pharmacist Quick Questions** for those burning pharmacist questions.  I will research the evidence on a drug, herb, food, supplement, and illness, including interactions and other specific medication, herbal or supplement information that is not related to specific patient information.

**If your questions are more involved and personal, Medication Therapy Management or the Integrative Wellness Consult will be more appropriate services.

Lifestyle Modification Coaching – There is no time like the present to begin that path to being the healthiest you that you can be!  I will be your partner in facilitating the development of a personalized workable plan with regular follow-up supportive appointments for a period of time.  There are discounts for these grouped pre-paid packages of appointments.  Reduce, or possibly eliminate, the need for prescription medications, in weight loss, diabetes control, hypertension, anxiety, stress reduction, depression, better sleep and others.  These programs are tailored to each patient, and can include group education and support in common areas such as nutrition, movement training, mindfulness training, stress reduction, good sleep hygiene and more.

Pharmacogenomic and Nutrigenomic Testing and Interpretation of Your Results – Discover how your genetics affect your potential responses to medications, nutrition, activity, stress, and devise a plan (in collaboration with your provider for medication results) for further streamlining your nutrition, movement, and other fitness goals.  Access to DNA testing, and result communication and consultation with providers and patients to help streamline recommendations for optimized wellness.

Two Options for Payment of Service Fees:  

  1. Pay-per-service. Payment is required at time of service.  No insurance is billed.  A superbill for acupuncture and pharmacist services can be supplied upon request for your submittal for insurance reimbursement.  I highly recommend checking with your insurance company prior to your first appointment to see what is covered and if they will reimburse via superbill. Payment is required at time of service.

    There are package options for Lifestyle Modification and Quick Questions.

  2. Concierge Membership  Service with a minimal (1 hour for patients and clients, or 4 hours for medical practices) monthly retainer ($150/month or $600/month) for my services which allows prioritized access to consult with me on Quick Questions and to information and products (including meditations and more) and resources I have made available at the website membership page. The monthly concierge service also includes access, for no additional fee, to any workshops offered during that month.

The retainer is equivalent to one hour of service time in a given month and can be applied to any of the above listed services applicable to your location.  Each service has a specific “hour equivalent” allotment, i.e. a mobile acupuncture treatment is billed at 0.75 hr (for 45 minutes).  All hours of service rendered over this 1 hour (or 4 hours for healthcare practices) monthly retainer, are tracked, documented and billed monthly by 15 minute increments, with payment due in full when billed.  I have further information available for concierge services for healthcare practices and what that entails.

Please let me know if you have any questions about my services or how I can assist you on your health journey.  I greatly look forward to collaborating with you in support of your greatest well-being!  If you are not currently in the market for these services, I greatly appreciate your passing along my information to those who may be.

In Greatest Health and Gratitude!
