Investment and Payment.

Investment:   You agree that you are financially willing and able to invest in this Program by choice, and that by so doing, you are not incurring any economic hardship in any way.

  • Your investment is $2,997 and must be made upon enrollment in the Essentials Program.
  • Lab testing and supplements are individualized and not included in the Essentials Program fee.

Refund Policy:  At Harbor Integrative Health, we pride ourselves on bringing tremendous value to the lives of our patients. By enrolling in The Essentials Program, you are receiving a comprehensive program consisting of a multitude of services. Since these services work synergistically to bring our patients results, working with patients through a program allows us to provide a better price than offering each service a-la-carte. If you choose to withdraw from our Empowered Living program at any point after the initial consultation, you will be back-billed for any services rendered. See details below.

If you do decide to cancel, you will be charged for all services ($300 per hour) and materials provided prior to the date of cancellation. The total of these costs will be deducted from your program payment. All refunds will be subject to a 3% refund processing fee based on the amount that was paid. After these deductions, the remaining balance of your program payment will be refunded. If you received services or materials in excess of the amount paid, you will not be held responsible for the difference. All payments made for lab tests and supplements are non-refundable.


Confidentiality is important to us. We will keep all information exchanged between us during the Program confidential. We will not disclose any information that you share with me during the Program to anyone else unless: (1) they have a legitimate reason to know such information as a member of my team or staff, (2) when required by law, or (3) you have given me prior written permission.
