FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE

Please see our What We Do page to learn more about Functional Medicine and to evaluate if we are a good fit for you!

Our provider offers the following services to support client wellness:

  1. Laboratory-based assessments
  2. Nutritional supplement programs
  3. Diet and lifestyle counseling, including weight loss and hormone balancing programs

Our wellness philosophy involves balancing the three body systems. Your hormonal system produces your sex and stress hormones; your digestive system breaks down food for use by the body; and your detoxification system protects you from free radicals and chemical toxicity, both from your environment and from your diet. Every health issue can be traced back to a problem within one or more of your three body systems.

Through targeted lab testing that you can do in the privacy of your own home for each of these systems, we are able to assess how each system is working and design an individualized program to rebalance your body.

“My experience shows that with an individualized diet plan, a scientifically based supplement program, stress reduction and exercise, a person’s health can improve dramatically – not only physically, but emotionally. With an ongoing wellness plan many health problems can be avoided, such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity and female hormone imbalances.”
Dr. Kalish

How does a Remote consultation work?


Remote Consultations are for those who  cannot make it for an in-person consultation. Compliance with Texas Medical Board laws requires that diagnosing, interpretation of traditional labs, or prescriptions fall under face-to-face encounters or via a Telemedicine license.  We desire complete compliance to this, but would also like to offer some of our services to those whom distance, time, or other circumstances prevent a face-to-face consultation. Therefore, we cannot and will not diagnose or prescribe medications during Remote Consultations.

During your initial consultation, the provider will review your personal and family health history and make recommendations for functional nutrient tests that are appropriate for your specific health issues that can be drop-shipped directly to you within 2-3 business days.

Once your lab work has been completed, the provider will explain the meaning of your results to you in a follow up consultation. They will also recommend an individualized health program for you which will include one or more of the following: diet changes, nutritional supplements, and exercise, lifestyle and stress management recommendations. Subsequent consultations are scheduled to monitor your progress and to modify your program. Repeat testing is always recommended to make sure there is improvement.

How does an In-Person consultation work?


Stewarding Life Wellness works with clients primarily in office and in-person. The types of tests that we use are stool, saliva, or urine samples.  We base our health programs on lab tests that assess the function of the three body systems: neuroendocrine, gastrointestinal and detoxification pathways.

During your initial consultation, the provider will review your personal and family health history and make recommendations for lab tests that are appropriate for your specific health issues.

Once your lab work has been completed, the provider will explain the meaning of your test results to you in a follow up consultation. They will also create an individualized health program for you which will include one or more of the following: diet changes, nutritional supplements, and exercise, lifestyle and stress management recommendations. Subsequent consultations are scheduled to monitor your progress and to modify your program. Repeat testing is always recommended to make sure there is improvement.

Additional Follow Up Consults ($175 - 30 minutes)

*** NOTE: Any response that requires 5 minutes or longer of the provider's time to respond to your message will require an appointment by phone.  These will be billed by the amount of time consulted with the provider, but should be no greater than 20 minutes as this would require a follow-up consult fee charge for the appointment.  Please see our Fees page for details.
