Find out the difference between wellness health care and traditional medicine; learn what a Wellness Consultation is and why you would need one; and understand the meaning of telehealth, telemedicine and telewellness.

What is a Wellness Consultation?

Simply stated, a Wellness Consultation is similar to a visit with a doctor in their office, except it takes place virtually or over the phone.  During your Wellness Consultation, a TeleWellnessMD™ provider will review your health history and wellness goals to make appropriate program recommendations and prescribed wellness therapies.  

How much does a Wellness Consultation cost and would I need one?

Regulations require a consultation with a licensed medical professional in order to receive any vitamin or nutraceutical injections, HCG detox or peptide therapies.  A Wellness Consultation is only $49.95.  TeleWellness is safe, convenient and affordable.  
We are focused on the complimentary delivery of wellness care, which includes help with the following:

  • Vitamin and nutrient deficiencies
  • Hormone imbalance
  • Immune system support

The difference between wellness health care and traditional medicine

Wellness health care is different from traditional medicine, as it focuses on prevention, not disease. Wellness programs help people improve their health, overcome illness or disease through positive lifestyle changes such as regular exercise, better nutrition and sleep hygiene.

Traditional medical care centers treat illness as most people go to the doctor when they are sick however, preventing illness before onset is what preventive medicine is targeting.  Preventive and wellness medicine doctors develop ways to prevent disease and keep people healthy.

Telehealth, telemedicine and Telewellness™ are elevating access and convenience of medical care to a higher standard.

What is telehealth?

Telehealth involves the distribution of health care services, recommendations, prescriptions and information using electronic information and telecommunication technologies facilitating long distance contact between health care providers and patients. Telehealth is similar to telemedicine, but on a broader scale.  While telemedicine applies specifically to remote clinical services, telehealth involves both clinical and non-clinical services as well as education and training.

What is TeleWellnessMD™?
