A Wellness Consultation is an extended interview during which Dr. Zarren gathers adequate information to make sense enough of a patient's condition so that he can help the patient make sense of the condition. Initial sessions generally last 3-5 hours.

Dr. Zarren may have suggestions, based on the history, about nutrition, lifestyle, and other useful interventions for a patient and/or their caregivers. Dr. Zarren believes that a person needs to be convinced to take on a nutrition and/or lifestyle change, in order for the changes to be sustained and effective. Dependent on the initial intake, and with a patient's agreement, Dr. Zarren may also use Clinical Hypnosis, taught to the patient, to change body biology, in order to help change a patient's condition.
Follow-up sessions generally last 1.5-2 hours.

Goals of a Wellness Consult include:

  1. Making sense of a health situation
  2. Creating a list of the strengths that an individual brings to their situation
  3. Creating a list of questions, thoughts and suggestions for patients and their caregivers
  4. Creating a treatment plan, possibly using Clinical Hypnosis
