TeleMedicine

Now you can consult with Dr. Helene Pulnik ND without leaving the comfort of your home. If you reside in California or Connecticut, you can schedule a TeleMedicine consultation with Dr. Pulnik.

All appointments are one hour long, and are conducted via TeleMedicine – you will not need to be (physically) in the office. Dr. Pulnik specializes in Functional Medicine, and will work with you to understand your health issues and create a treatment plan.

At last – distance is no longer a barrier to the finest medical care!
Within your TeleMedicine appointment, Dr. Pulnik  offers the following services to support your wellness:

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

Dr. Pulnik’s wellness philosophy involves balancing the whole person. The systems involved in your overall wellness include your energy, hormonal, digestive, immune, cardiovascular, endocrine, detox and mental/emotional systems.  Most health problems arise from one or more systems out of balance.  Through targeted lab testing that you can do in the privacy of your own home for each of these systems, Dr. Pulnik is 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.”

How does a TeleMedicine consultation work?

For TeleMedicine consultations, Dr. Pulnik works with you via Skype or Facetime because the health programs she designs are based on the results of lab tests that can easily be done in your home. The types of tests that Dr. Pulnik uses are stool, saliva, or urine samples. Dr. Pulnik bases her health programs on lab tests that assess the function of the body systems. During your initial TeleMedicine consultation Dr.  Pulnik 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, Dr. Pulnik will explain the meaning of your test results to you in a follow up TeleMedicine consultation. She 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.
