Become a Practice Member

Find Out how to get started at Roots of Health today

Here is what we ask our new practice members to do as they begin their journey toward optimal health:

Step 1

Keys to Health

Discover the Keys to Regain Your Health

We believe education is essential for successful healing. To help you better understand what it will take to resolve your health concerns, we ask you to please watch our FREE webinar on Achieving Optimal Health (see below).

Step 2


Schedule a Practice Member Evaluation

Once you understand the keys to better health, take action and schedule your 1 hour Practice Member Evaluation with Lonna Larsh. In this appointment, she deeply listens to your biggest health concerns to get a better understanding of how these are affecting your life. As our team gets to know you, we discuss your short and long-term health goals. We share how our functional medicine approach would address your health challenges and how our team would help you achieve your goals.

Step 3

Get Started on Your Path to Optimal Health

If we decide that we are a great match to work together and you decided to become a Practice Member, our team will get your started on the day of your evaluation. We then schedule your initial 2 hour office visit with Dr. Larsh. We may send you home with one or more comprehensive lab tests to help identify the root cause of your health concerns.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you help everyone?

No, we cannot help everyone. We can only help people who have a strong commitment to do what it takes to optimize their health. We only accept new practice members who are ready to do what it takes to get and stay healthy.

How much do appointments cost?

Because the needs of each individual vary significantly, the program costs can vary significantly. During your initial one hour practice member evaluation, after assessing your health needs and wellness goals, we will let you know what your total investment would be to work with us. Complete and lasting healing takes time and commitment. That is why we ask our practice members to commit to an initial wellness program. After your initial intensive program is complete, we schedule appointments as needed and bill based on time. Remember - your initial one hour practice member evaluation is just $87.

Do you offer payment plans?

Yes. While we do offer a discount to those who can pay in full, we also have both in-house and outside financing options. The most popular option is 3 equal payments. We also work with trusted financing companies to get payments as low as $300 per month. Keep in mind that our wellness programs are all-inclusive, meaning you won’t be getting any surprise bills from us along the way.

Do you accept insurance?

We are not contracted with any insurance companies. If you have a health savings account (HSA) or a flex spending account (FSA), you can utilize those funds for our services. Upon request, we are able to provide superbills for most office visits.

Do you work with people outside of Santa Cruz?

Yes! Many of our practice members live throughout the Bay Area and beyond. There is so much that we can do using modern technology, including telemedicine. Once we decide we are a good match to work together, we will need you to come into the office once for a 2 hour visit with Dr. Larsh. After that, we can connect via phone, email, and video conferencing (telemedicine). While we always love to see our practice members in the office, we can provide all essential services from a distance.


Perhaps you’re the person who left your last appointment feeling…

  • Rushed as your doctor only had 15 minutes to spend with you.
  • Uncertain of whether you will have side effects from your new medication.
  • Afraid that your health will worsen and prevent you from living life to the fullest.

If that’s you, we’re so glad you found us.
