What to Expect From Digestive Issues Treatment

At Absoulute Vitality, we strongly believe in an individualized approach to a patient’s care as well as an equal partnership between a doctor and a patient. We will dive deep into your past history to understand what specific factors may play a role in your digestive issues. We will offer you a customized comprehensive blood work that may include blood biomarkers such as comprehensive food allergy testing, hormone levels such as deep analysis of your thyroid and cortisol (because a lot of digestive issues are related to stress and thyroid), gluten sensitivity and autoimmunity markers and stool tests for infection and inflammation.

Once your results are available, we will offer you various strategies to optimize your imbalances. You will have a choice between a more natural approach (for example herbal antimicrobials for SIBO) and a more aggressive one (such as antibiotics). Dr. Kalika, with the help of the health coach at Absoulute Vitality, will create a customized plan consisting of a individualized and realistic nutritional regimen, movement routine, and appropriate supplements.

Dr. Kalika and her clinical team will always be available to briefly answer all your questions through email communication between the visits.

Our Absoulute Body Weight Loss Program will also be available for those who desire and/or struggle to lose weight.

At Absoulute Vitality, no matter what treatment plan you and Dr. Kalika decide on, she will always support your choice and provide you with thorough and comprehensive, individualized care that you may have been missing until now.

How Much Does Digestive Issues Treatment Cost?

Once you become a patient of Absoulute Vitality, you will start with the Discovery Phase which includes two sixty-minute appointments with Dr. Kalika and one sixty-minute visit with the health coach.

The baseline price for your Discovery Phase (including two sixty minutes with Dr. Kalika and one sixty-minute visit with the health coach) is $900. After the discovery phase is completed, if you decide to proceed with your care at AV, you will be able to choose between an annual membership plan called Absoulute Care with which you will get four thirty minute follow-up visits with Dr. Kalika and four thirty-minute follow-up visits with your health coach, all evenly spread out throughout the following year. The discounted price for this membership is $1,000, paid upfront. Alternatively, you can purchase visits with Dr. K and your health coach a la carte. For the price, please refer to our price of services section.

*Please note – We are OUT OF NETWORK with all the insurances. FSA is welcome.

Additional Costs

If you have health insurance, your lab work (minus deductible), will most likely be covered. Some of the advanced functional tests have a limited option of insurance coverage, however, most of the testing is out of pocket. Each test has its own price which will be provided to you during your visit.

Some other expenses may include the price of the supplements, compounded medications, optional aesthetic procedures, and IV treatments that we offer. 10% discounts on aesthetic procedures and IV infusions are available for Dr. Kalika’s functional medicine patients.
