Matched with a practitioner who specializes in your unique symptoms. Our practitioners work closely with you to adjust your plan throughout your care.
Top, vetted coaches who receive ongoing training and collaborate with expert MDs in the field.
If you compare our cost to other functional, naturopathic or nutritionists in the field, we are much more affordable.
Your health didn’t get this way overnight, so getting better overnight isn’t realistic. We are patient with your body and methodical with our choices as we provide you with the tools needed to get lasting results.
Many companies have either a food sensitivity test or a gut health test and that’s it. But what if that isn’t your issue, or isn’t enough to fully reverse your symptoms?
A conventional protocol would prescribe a pill or maybe a supplement to solve for your insomnia (for example), but that doesn’t target the “root” of the issue. GritWell doesn’t mask your symptoms - we help you figure out exactly what is driving them and find relief.
Food can help get you roughly 30% of the way, but what about the rest? Unfortunately it's often more complicated than just altering your diet or losing weight.
Our approach takes effort, time and willingness to change. If you are not ready to put in the time and effort to get lasting results, then we are likely not a fit.
1) Two appointments per month with your practitioner 2) Unlimited email, video call, and text support with your care manager 3) A detailed GritWell health plan with clears steps and objectives created specifically for you by your practitioner and our MD’s 4) Follow-up notes after each appointment with new actionable items 5) Recommendations on testing, lifestyle changes, nutrition, and supplements, 6) Discounts on supplements.
Supplements and testing are not included in the membership. Your practitioner will work within your budget and select testing that is going to be most informative for you, and supplements that will yield the best results for your specific case. Certain supplements and testing can be offered to GritWell clients at a discounted rate.
We do not take insurance or HSA/FSA at this time. Conventional medicine that accepts insurance is based around the principle that a patient can be labeled with a reimbursable diagnostic code (diagnosis) that allows the provider to find medications or a procedure to match that code. The functional medicine model does not fit within that model as it is not centered on finding a diagnosis and offering a quick fix, but rather taking the time to determine what is driving the symptoms and addressing the root issue, while realizing that all our systems are interconnected.
No, canceling mid-membership is not something we can support. That being said, we have had special cases where clients paused in the middle of their membership (due to extenuating circumstances) and then returned to complete their health plan later. It is important to go through each phase of the plan created by your team, as they all work in conjunction to best serve you and address your symptoms.
You are matched to a plan based on the severity of your symptoms. If you are assigned to the advanced plan, we have assigned you to one of our advanced practitioners that has more experience dealing with similar cases and yielding successful results. We take the time to match you with the practitioner best suited for your specific set of symptoms so you can make the most of your time with us and see the best results.
If you miss your appointment, or cancel within 24 hours of the appointment time, you will be charged a $45 fee for 30-min appointments (follow-ups) or $85 for 60-min appointments (initial appointment). Our practitioners’ time is so precious, so please be mindful when scheduling. If you need to cancel please reach out to your care manager before that 24 hour window and they will assist with rescheduling.
Yes, we do offer GritWell for children, though for children under 18 we require parental oversight and a parent must be present during the appointment with your practitioner. Children can benefit from GritWell just as much as adults - in fact we find it beneficial to start at an earlier age to ensure symptoms do not progress.
GritWell works with many qualified practitioners, each with their own style of care. If you find that the functional MD you are currently seeing doesn’t work for you, GritWell takes more of your personal preferences into account when matching you with a practitioner. For example, if you prefer a practitioner that moves slower and doesn’t recommend many diet changes, we will keep that in mind. GritWell includes more than just nutrition changes, as diet is only one aspect of the healing process.
