Dr. Hennigar supports you by:

  • Recommending and discussing more advanced lab work where needed and explaining your results in detail, answering any questions you have.

  • Creating a comprehensive report on the patterns occurring with your health, the information to support the patterns (lab results and symptoms) and the step by step treatments to get you feeling better right away.

  • Providing you with personalized diet, lifestyle, and natural medicine recommendations and adjusting your plan over time as your health changes and improves.

  • Educating you about your own health so that you can be your most important health advocate. Knowledge is power.

  • Teaching you how to be accountable and excited about your own health; empowering you to sustain your successes into the future.

  • Giving access to Dr. Hennigar’s Health Insiders Private Facebook Group where she shares presentations, information and case studies on healthy living, specific conditions, testing options and treatments.
