Here at Veritas Medical our goal is to teach the patient how to maintain a state of health. The more common approach to medicine, on the other hand, is more reactionary: We wait for the symptom to show up and get bothersome enough and then treat the symptom with a pharmaceutical or a surgery. Prevention or reversal of root causes is not a mainstay in our traditional way of practicing medicine.
With this in mind, we have decided to offer a monthly membership plan to assist patients in living a lifestyle that promotes wellness. There is no need to just wait around to be one of the statistics (1 out of 2 American men will get cancer and 1 out of 3 women; half the population will die from cardiovascular disease, millions will suffer the slow death of diabetes or Alzheimer’s dementia, and 1 out of 68 kids born today suffer from autism spectrum disorder, up from 1 out of 5000 in 1975). These are preventable!
A membership is designed to keep you healthy and well, providing all the care you would receive as your primary care provider as well as many additional benefits you won’t find at a typical doctor’s office.
A membership is designed to keep you healthy and well, providing all the care you would receive as your primary care provider as well as many additional benefits you won’t find at a typical doctor’s office, because we aren’t just a medical clinic. You’re becoming part of a community. Our goal is to provide the resources and support to develop a structure for a true community of like-minded people who want to get healthy and stay healthy and become a beacon of what real healthcare should look like: Making healthy choices and living life to the fullest.
At Veritas we see 4 pillars of health that are vital to restoring and maintaining your health, Nutrition, Hydration, Movement, and Peace. Without these four core things in place the stability of your life in general will fail. Take a look at these 4 short videos for a quick primer on the 4 pillars.
Every new member starts with and orientation visit and then sees a Nurse Practitioner or Physician’s Assistant in about two weeks. At your first practitioner visit, initial blood work is done and initial supplements are started.
Your Nurse Practitioner or Physician’s Assistant will assess your medical issues and create a short and long term plan to get you back on track and help you stay there. This typically revolves around Nutrition and some Detoxification. In some cases further testing may be ordered, such as HTMA, hormone levels, or for toxins. Part of the goal here is to re-mineralize and detoxify.
Your long term goal should be health self-sufficiency. We want to teach you how to take care of yourself, with an ultimate goal of a single annual visit for blood testing to assess how you’re doing. You’ll be utilizing the Veritas Healthy Community resources (Veritas Education, Veritas Kitchen, Veritas Garden, and Veritas Movement) to stay up to date with the latest health news through classes, newsletters, videos, micro-tuneups and the many other offerings of the VHC. Although all your medical visits are covered in your membership, your monthly membership fee is really designed to cover your proper education, nutrition, exercise and garden support, because your healthy lifestyle is the key to long term health.

At Veritas Medical, the goal for every patient is to achieve their healthy weight/circumference, become symptom-free and eventually wean off all pharmaceuticals. This would be considered true health. Our bodies were designed to be able to achieve those 3 goals and maintain them, and we want to provide the kind of support and community to help you achieve these goals.
It does you little good to use all the tools in your toolbox to build a house, then, once it’s built, throw your toolbox away and no longer maintain the house you worked so hard to build, only to watch it fall into disrepair and decay. An ongoing membership gives you access to the tools you need to get healthy and, most importantly, stay healthy.
