The Remède Physique Process Step~by~Step


Nutritional Therapy is a form of “functional medicine,” which conventional practitioners allocate as a “gray area” of medicine. Conventional, allopathic health care professionals are trained in acute, pathological disease medicines. The “grey area" of  "functional medicine" focuses on subacute, chronic "discomfort" which left unmanaged develops into acute, pathological disease.

To distill it even further … functional medicine manages health … allopathic medicine manages diseases.

Many people have asked me why I am not a “medical” doctor. I thought long and hard about pursuing an allopathic medical career and I realized that my passion truly lies in the ‘health detective’ realm. I am absorbed in figuring out what is going on for folks whose blood work is “normal” yet they suffer from truly unpleasant symptoms that destroy the quality of their lives (for these people there are no disease processes in effect and therefore their medical doctors cannot aid them). These are the people who I am passionately dedicated to assisting.

I do not diagnose disease and I do not work to treat disease processes. When a client has disease markers show up in a blood panel I refer them to their allopathic physician who is trained in treating disease. 

The functional blood chemistry range has a much smaller 'window of health' so if a disease process is beginning to occur, then I can recommend the patient to a physician at an earlier stage and the patient has a greater chance of attaining complete wellness. I do have clients with disease process underway that are being managed by allopathic physicians and are working concurrently with me to enhance the healing processes.

The majority of my clients have suffered from chronic discomfort and disease. Many are dealing with autoimmune disorders, Hashimoto's, Grave's disease, rheumatoid arthritis, celiac disease, and Crohn's … many others are dealing with cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic viral hepatitis, gallbladder disease, autism, mood disorders, infertility, menopause and andropause, and a growing number of people injured by the novel mRNA injections. Nutritional Therapy has become an integral way for them to manage their symptoms and live pain free. I do have a smaller percentage of clients that are in good health, and want to enhance their well-being by instituting an anti-aging regimen.

To initiate nutritional coaching we start with a functional reading of your blood work to see exactly what is going on biochemically inside of your body. The blood reading helps us deduce what stressors are at work on the body (blood sugar handling, food allergies/sensitivities, systemic inflammation, etc), and what support the liver may need, if there is any subacute anemia occurring, if an auto-immune reaction is underway, and other similar processes.

The cost of the requisition is $398 and you can pay by credit card by visiting the online store:

To order your requisition I will need your birthdate, height, weight, address and preferred phone number. Please email them to me when you place your online order for the requisition.

If you have any questions before beginning, please e-mail me @


First: please contact me via email @ and explain your interests and concerns. When you contact me by email, I will also create your Nutri-Q account.  I will also send you an Informed Consent and Disclaimer form. You will post it back to me {418 Elizabeth Kay Lane, Lewisburg, WV 24901} or take a snapshot of it and email/text it to me. 

Second: the Nutri-Q system will send you an invitation to fill out an online interviewing questionnaire (there is no charge). 

Third: the Nutri-Q system will send you an invitation to fill out an online nutritional assessment questionnaire (there is no charge).

Fourth: we communicate to ascertain which blood work requisitions will best suit your needs. Most often we will start with the Comprehensive Metabolic Panel {$398.00} that is described and itemized below {keep scrolling}.

Fifth: After you have had blood drawn, and the lab tabulates your results, I will analyze the blood work. I contact you by e-mail and deliver a detailed review of the findings in your blood work including nutritional recommendations … we can also use e-mail to schedule a time to speak by phone to discuss the results … however, I find that e-mail is preferable because the information is available for repeated reference, unlike a conversation which can be forgotten or misremembered … having something to refer back to really helps with the process of assimilating large quantities of new information

The cost of the initial analysis is $375. Follow up analysis is $187.50 Payment must be received by me prior to your consultation. I do accept credit cards and you can pay online. Once I finish your analysis, I will email you the link to pay online.

If you prefer to pay by check, checks can be sent to:

This entire process is very involved and requires a deep commitment to enhancing your own wellbeing. It works gently and is amazingly effective when adhered to with dedication and expectations of success.

You can anticipate making changes to your diet, lifestyle and mindset, and taking nutritional supplements on a daily basis.

My treatment philosophy is to see fewer people, spend more time with each individual and do a better job. Essentially you hire me to be your personal ‘health detective.’ Ongoing e-mail support is included as part of the service. It is important to me that each person is thoroughly educated about their health and wellbeing.

Let me know when you are interested in proceeding by sending me an email. I do not use the phone while in session with clients, and my schedule is such that I have limited time to return calls within business hours.

I look forward to working with you in the near future.

Many Blessings! 🙏🏼

Comprehensive Metabolic Profile ~ Your Cost is $398.00

(Retail cost on this panel is  around $2,000.)

Fasting Required: Yes - 10 to 12 hours


Lipids:This is a group of simple blood tests that reveal important information about the types, amount and distribution of the various types of fats (lipids) in the bloodstream. Includes Total Cholesterol, HDL (good) Cholesterol, LDL (bad) Cholesterol, Risk Ratio (good to total), and Triglycerides

Complete Blood Count(CBC's):Used as a broad screening test to check for such disorders as anemia, infection, and many other diseases. It is actually a panel of tests that examines different parts of the blood.

Fluids and Electrolytes:Includes Chloride, Potassium, Sodium, and Carbon Dioxide

Thyroid w/TSH:Includes T-3 Uptake, Total T4, (Free thyroxineindex)T7, and TSH

Liver:Includes Albumin, Alkaline Phosphatase, AlanineTransaminase (ALT or SGPT), AspartateTransaminase (AST or SGOT), Total Bilirubin, Total Protein, LDH, Total Globulin, Albumin/Globulin Ratio, and GGT

Kidney:Includes Blood Urea Nitrogen (BUN),Creatinine, BUN/CreatinineRatio, eGFR, and Uric Acid

Glucose (Diabetes)

Mineral and Bone:Total Iron, Calcium, and Phosphorus

Magnesium: This mineral is particularly important to nerves and muscles. Low magnesium is found in malnutrition, alcoholism, diabetes, hyperparathyroidism, and more. High magnesium is seen in kidney failure

Iron W/TIBC:TotalIron Binding Capacity (TIBC)measures the amount of transferrin, a blood protein that transports iron from the gut to the cells that use it. Your body makes transferrinin relationship to your need for iron; when iron stores are low, transferrin levels increase, while transferrin is low when there is too much iron. Usually about one third of the transferrin is being used to transport iron. Because of this, your blood serum has considerable extra iron-binding capacity, which is the Unsaturated Iron Biding Capacity (UIBC). The TIBC equals UIBC plus the serum iron measurement. Some laboratories measure UIBC, some measure TIBC, and some measure transferrin.

Serum IronLevel: measures the level of iron in the liquid part of your blood.

Ferritin: Composed of iron and protein, Ferritin is a storehouse for iron in the body. Measurement provides an accurate picture of how much iron you have available in reserve. It is used to evaluate anemia and for diagnosing iron deficiency. Low Ferritin is a sign of iron deficiency. Ferritin is high with inflammation, infection, liver disease, iron overload, certain amends and certain cancers (leukemia and lymphoma

T3-Total: One Increased T3 often occurs in hyperthyroidism, but in approximately 5% of cases only T3 is elevated, “T3 toxicosis.” Do not confuse T3 with T3 uptake; these are two different tests. The latter is done very commonly as part of the usual thyroid profile. Less than 1% of T3 is unbound.

T3 Free: Tri-iodothyronine (T3): This test is used to evaluate thyroid function. It is primarily used to diagnose hyperthyroidism. It is also used to assess abnormal binding protein disorders and to monitor thyroid replacement and suppressive therapy .

T4 Free:ThyroxineT4 (Free):This test is used to evaluate thyroid function in individuals who may have protein abnormalities that could affect total T4 levels. It is used to evaluate thyroid function and monitor replacement and suppressive therapy

TPO:The TPO gene provides instructions for making an enzyme called thyroid peroxidase. This enzyme plays a central role in the function of the thyroid gland. Thyroidperoxidase assists the chemical reaction that adds iodine to a protein called thyroglobulin, a critical step in generating thyroid hormones. Thyroid hormones play an important role in regulating growth, brain development, and the rate of chemical reactions in the body (metabolism).

TAA:This test helps to detect possible thyroid problems. Thyroglobulin is a protein that is normally confined to the thyroid gland. It is the source of the thyroxine and triiodothyronine hormones in the body. The presence of autoantibodies to thyroglobulin can lead to the destruction of the thyroid gland. Such antibodies are more likely to appear after trauma to, or inflammation of, the thyroid gland.

HgbA1C: This non-fasting test indicates how well you have controlled your diabetes over the last few months. Even though you may have some very high or very low blood glucose values, Hemoglobin A1C will give you a picture of the average amount of glucose in your blood over that time period. The result can help you and your doctor know if the measures you are taking to control your diabetes are successful. Hemoglobin A1C is not a substitute for daily, routine blood glucose diabetes testing.

C-Reactiveprotein: a substance in the blood that indicates the presence of inflammation and could warn of a heart attack in advance. Elevated amounts of the protein in men may triple their risk for heart attack and double their risk for stroke, whereas elevated amounts in women can increase their heart attack risk up to seven times. Cardio (also specific or high sensitivity) C-Reactive Protein is a marker of inflammation to the blood vessels and a strong predictor of risk for future myocardial infarctions. Cardiovascular tests ordered vary based on patient symptoms as well as family history.

Homocysteine: commonly used as a screen for people at high risk for heart attack or stroke. It may be useful in patients who have a family history of coronary artery disease but no other known risk factors.

Fibrinogen: also referred to as factor I, is a 340 kilo dalton glycoprotein that is produced by the liver. Fibrinogen has a plasma half-life of about 4 days. Proteolytic conversion of fibrinogen to fibrin occurs through both the extrinsic and intrinsic pathways.6 Fibrinogen deficiency should be considered when a patient with bleeding history has both extended protime (PT) and activated partial thromboplastintime (aPTT).

Vitamin D, 25Hydroxy: Also known as the "sunshine vitamin" because the body manufactures the vitamin after being exposed to sunshine. Ten to 15 minutes of sunshine 3 times weekly is enough to produce the body's requirement of vitamin D. Needed for strong bones and teeth, Vitamin D helps your body absorb the amount of calcium it needs. It also has other roles in the body, including modulation of cell growth, neuromuscular and immune function, and reduction of inflammation. There are associations between low Vitamin D levels and peripheral vascular disease, certain cancers, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile diabetes, Parkinson's, and Alzheimer's disease.
