The number of labs recommended will depend on your individual situation including the number of issues you struggle with and the length of time you have been experiencing them, but the range is 1-4 lab tests.
The results of your lab test(s) will be sent to The Kalish Wellness office 2 to 4 weeks after mailing your specimens to the lab. After evaluation we will contact you to schedule a follow up appointment to review your results with Daniel Kalish and he will recommend a wellness protocol.
Daniel Kalish does all lab review sessions and will design your protocol during your lab results consultation. The rest of our team helps with follow up, nutritional and lifestyle coaching as well as with disseminating all of our health and wellness educational information.
Our authorized laboratories are only able to sell test kits to licensed practitioners. Daniel Kalish uses specific lab tests from small lab companies that exclusively offer functional medicine tests. Larger national labs and local hospital based labs are not helpful for these types of highly specialized tests.
Daniel Kalish has learned over many years that the accuracy of your lab findings and the quality of the professionals performing the lab tests is the key to you uncovering what’s going on. Quality is not equal across all lab companies. Many times we see “normal” test results from regular lab companies and our lab tests find many “functional” problems. The lab companies used for Kalish Wellness clients have the highest testing standards and the most consistent lab results year after year. These are not replacements for regular medical tests, these tests are only used to detect “functional” issues rather than medical problems and aren’t meant to diagnose or recommend protocols for diseases. We are attempting to detect problems with the functioning of organ systems prior to the onset of a disease.
Even if you have previous labs completed in order to become a new patient with Daniel Kalish, a new patient consultation is required. At that session, the new patient coordinator will determine if new labs are required. Daniel Kalish does not do any interpretations on blood work.
Depending on the type of test, the samples required are saliva, urine or stool. All tests are completed by the client through easy test kits that are self-administered in the comfort of your own home. No blood tests will be interpreted.
Initial new patient consultations are 45 minutes.
Follow up lab result consultations can be scheduled for 30 min. (if you have 1 tests), 45 min. (if you have 2 tests), or 1 hour (if you have 3-4 tests). ION Panels require a 1 hour consultation (no exceptions).
Existing client follow up consultations can be scheduled for 15, 30, 45 or 60 minutes.
Daniel Kalish recommends supplements from high quality and reputable manufacturers that can only be purchased with a practitioner’s recommendation. The Wellness plan that Daniel Kalish creates has specific dosages based on the exact ingredients in that specific supplement. If you want to do your own research on different supplements, we welcome you to do so but we do not provide any other recommendations nor advise on other specific blends or brands. If you purchase other supplements from other manufacturers, please research carefully. Not all ingredients are equal, and there is not a guaranteed quality when you purchase supplements elsewhere, especially on Amazon.
Daniel Kalish is currently not accepting any new in-person consultations requests.
