Medical Records

We ask that if  you do have your medical records, that you bring them with you. If you don’t have them, please ask your Medical Service Provider to give them to you. Please ask for your most recent history and physical report, and the results of any lab work and diagnostic testing in the last two years. If you don’t have a recent blood work-up, you can have one done onsite (we have worked out a deal with the local hospital to get you as low a price on the work-up as possible).

Medications

We ask that you bring all the medications and supplements that you are currently taking with you, and enough for the time that you are with us. Also we ask that you let your medical provider know that you are starting a lifestyle retreat, and that they may need to adjust your medications after the retreat.
