People Living Outside of Oregon:
While current medical laws do not allow for Dr. Chong to practice medicine virtually with people outside of Oregon, he can still be tremendously helpful in supporting and advising you on your health journey. In this situation, Dr. Chong will serve as a knowledgeable and experienced interpreter, coach and advisor for you as you navigate your way towards regaining the health that is your inherent right.
Advice given is based on defined, science-backed nutritional information, tried and true basic health support strategies. Out of town clients can direct order lab test that assess for signs of sub-optimal health and function, including inflammation, advanced cholesterol testing, blood sugar analysis, oxidative stress testing, nutrient levels, endothelial function, and more. Rather than making medical diagnoses, which are essentially used to determine need for conventional medical interventions, the information obtained from these tests will be used to assess for healthy function (or lack thereof) of the body, and to objectively follow how your body is responding to an improved opportunity to be healthy. While it is not the expressed goal, more often than not, this in turn can still lead to improvements in numerous diagnosed diseases.
During your initial consultation Dr. Chong will review your personal and family health history and discuss with you in detail his opinions as to your case. He may then make recommendations for certain tests that are appropriate for you, before advising you on health optimizing strategies that complement any current medical treatments you may be doing.
The recommendations may include one or more of the following:
Individualized dietary counseling and modification
Nutritional supplementation to support wellness
Exercise, lifestyle and stress management recommendations
NOTE: All subsequent consultations and testing are scheduled on an individualized basis, to monitor your progress and to modify your program.
