Start Your Journey
Patients partner with Melody McClain, our Nurse Practitioner, to resolve specific conditions or symptoms to optimize their health. She believes in personalized medicine and works with her patients to meet their health goals while respecting any financial limitations.
The time and pressure of our overcrowded healthcare system have reduced traditional medicine to no more than “reactive repair work.” Conventional medicine treats symptoms and not the cause of disease. In reality, a symptom is a clue, not a diagnosis.
We know from experience that permanent positive change in health takes time. Unlike the band-aid method of conventional medicine, functional medicine is not a one-size-fits all approach. One or two interactions with the doctor does not create a continuity of care that is imperative for sustainable health changes.
This is why we prefer our packages start with a minimum three-month commitment level and grow from there. At Healing From Within, we go beyond common standards of care to bring proven medical innovation to member’s health. Preventive care matters! Because of the importance of early detection, we utilize the best scientific approaches including advanced lab testing to detect vascular disease, cancer, and precursors to chronic illness.
Your health is unlike anyone else’s, so each program will be customized especially for your needs at your Initial Consultation.
Your membership allows us to provide focus on individual-specific health care and wellness. Our wellness programs offer you a totally different approach to health! Anyone can benefit – it doesn’t matter whether you have diabetes, heart disease, autoimmune complications, high blood pressure, hormonal problems, fatigue, or you just want to lose weight and feel great. These programs combine personal education, individual mentoring, and accountability by addressing the five main pillars of health:
Exercise and Physical Fitness
Detoxification of Liver and GI System
We require that the initial consultation be in-person, however, future appointments can be conducted via Skype or phone to accommodate busy schedules. Payment plans are available for all programs listed. While each program is individually customized, all programs are designed to improve:
Energy and Vitality
Fitness and Strength
While becoming a member is the preferred route on your road to optimal health and one which achieves the best results, you also have the option to choose a direct consult as your first step.

Time recorded for billing purposes at $260 per hour. Depending on the severity of your clinical condition and complexity of your case, if extra time is needed beyond your scheduled appointment time – billing in 15 minutes increments ($65 per 15 mins) will apply.
Patient Portal Messages
- Messages sent through the patient medical portal for simple straightforward questions regarding your existing treatment plan, will be answered. However, messages that require changes to your existing plan, new prescriptions or complex decision making – you will be asked to schedule a follow up appointment. We feel that important details about your health may be missed through back and forth messaging.
- Prescription are written with an appropriate number of refills to complete the course of treatment or to last until your next appointment. It is the patient’s responsibility to schedule these appointments (in office or over the phone) in a timely manner.
The lab recommendations will depend on the complexity of your case and Melody will discuss various options with you at the time of your initial visit.
These specialized Functional medicine labs are critical to identify imbalances and to understand your case.
