Living Well Program
Are you looking for direction on implementing a more holistic lifestyle, maintaining wellness, and preventing disease? Our new Living Well Program addresses the needs of new patients who have not yet experienced a medical diagnosis but are wanting to focus on REAL HEALTH.
Designed for new patients seeking to:
|Assess Their Current Health and Nutritional Status|
|Maintain Life-Long Wellness|
|Develop an Informed Plan for Lifestyle, Environmental, and Dietary Changes|
|Enhance General Wellness… and More!|
Our initial evaluation for the Living Well Program will take up to a full day and include the items listed below.
During your initial visit your doctor will develop a treatment plan specifically based on your individual needs. This will include a variety of lifestyle and nutrition instructions, outline of daily supplementation products, IV and clinic services, follow up appointments or educational resources. This yields a highly customized holistic treatment plan that will put you on the path to better health. As a patient at the Riordan Clinic you will be fully involved in the discovery process of maintaining wellness.
Co-learners start in Dome 1 by checking in at reception. At this time you will turn in new patient forms as well as relevant medical records from the last six months. A member from our clinic team will then greet you and take you to your first appointment.
Laboratory Panels and Testing
Laboratory testing is essential to our Real Health Discovery process. Our doctors use the results of lab testing as a vital tool in developing a long term plan to maintain Real Health. Since laboratory testing requires fasting, we will have you meet with one of our experienced phlebotomists as your first step in the day’s schedule. Tests are performed through the convenience of our onsite BioCenter Laboratory.
Please note that if you are a female who is still menstruating regularly – it may be best, especially if having hormonal concerns, to run your blood work between day 18- 22 of your menstrual cycle. Please tell us when scheduling your initial visit if you know what dates these are.
The Living Well Program includes a specific set of lab tests, which is different than the panel included in the other new patient programs. The tests includes are the Foundation Panel, Methylation Panel and LifeCare Hormone Panel.
Initial Visit with Physical Assessment
Together with the doctor you will spend up to an hour, sometimes more, to review your health history and discuss any concerns regarding your health or personal goals. The doctor will perform a routine physical examination. Based on your physical examination, health history, and symptoms, your doctor may order additional lab tests and will establish your individualized treatment plan.
Lab & IV Consultation
After meeting with the doctor, co-learners (patients) will talk with a member of our clinic team who will review the laboratory orders, IV nutrition plan, and other services suggested by the doctor. Our staff will also answer any questions that you might have throughout the process.
Everyone, no matter your health status, can benefit from IV Nutrition. Your body’s cells depend upon nutrients to fuel their energy producing biochemistry. IV Nutrition is the fastest way available to replenish chronically depleted nutrient reserves. As part of the Living Well Patient Program, co-learners will receive an IV infusion that will include a variety of nutrients customized based on their nutritional needs. This initial IV will contain up to 15 grams of
Vitamin C. Learn more about IV Vitamin C.
IV Education Session
After the final meeting with the doctor, all co-learners will once again have the opportunity to sit with a member of our clinic team for a final review of the information and treatment plan discussed during their doctor appointment. This is an opportunity to ask any questions or clarify any concerns while still on campus. Co-learners are always welcome to contact Riordan Clinic staff with questions in between appointments as well.
Supplements and products
MitoForm is formulated to boost mitochondrial reserves and jump-start cellular energy production. This has been shown to increase energy production and at the same time, recharge the primary cellular antioxidant pools of vitamin E, C and glutathione. It also contains key micronutrients and phytonutrients including green tea, broccoli seed extract and resveratrol to protect the mitochondria and continually renew the cycle of energy production.
VitaChek-C strips have been exclusively created by Riordan Clinic for in vitro measurement of urine Vitamin C. Each bottle contains 50 test strips. Start by testing early in the day before eating or taking nutrients. Then test after breakfast and again in the afternoon. Test a final time right before bed. The test strips are designed to be a fast and simple way to check your nutrient levels of Vitamin C daily so that you can adjust your diet or nutrient regimen accordingly.
Based on your initial appointment your doctor will likely suggest other supplements for you to take and may adjust that list on your first follow up when they review your lab results. We offer several sale and opportunities to purchase products at a discount throughout the year so make sure to follow us on Facebook and open emails that you receive from the Riordan Clinic.
Food as Medicine Course
All new patients will receive a flash drive with a recording of the Food as Medicine course as well as a digital copy of the text book. The in-depth course will connect the dots and address some fundamental questions behind how our diet impacts our health and well-being and how it contributes to the progression of chronic disease. Learn more about this course.
Return Appointment with Lab Review
Lab results take approximately ten business days to return. During your initial phone call, we will schedule you for your first return appointment which will be used to review your treatment plan, check progress and discuss lab results. This appointment is included in the cost of the Living Well Patient Program.
The Living Well Program cost is $2,250. This includes your initial doctor’s appointment, IV services, supplements, consultations, Food as Medicine course and the lab panels that are all explained above. After meeting with your doctor and discussing your individual needs, additional labs or supplements may be recommended. Visit our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section to find out more.
How does the Living Well Program differ from the Essential Program?
For more than a year we have been dividing potential patients into the Essential and Advanced Programs. While speaking with the co-learners we saw a need to create a new entry point that was focused on sustaining wellness. The Living Well Program is for people who want to address their health and make pro-active decisions to maintain health before an illness arises. The Essential Program offers more lab testing as well as an additional follow up and is designed for someone who has been diagnosed with a long term issue. The Advanced Program offers everything that the Essential Program does as well as more IV nutrition and an additional appointment with the doctor. Someone who has been fighting a chronic condition such as cancer or Lyme disease would fall into the Advanced Program. To read more about why we ask new patients to go through one of the Real Health Discover programs, please read our introductory page.

Over the next several months it will be important to implement the nutrition and lifestyle changes, supplement recommendations, follow-up appointments and clinic services that your treatment plan outlines. By taking an active role in your recovery, you will understand the systemic causes of your illness better, thus enacting a positive impact on your health.
