“Can you help me?”

Pure Simple Self accepts three groups of clients: 1) Those dealing with digestive health symptoms specifically (i.e. acid reflux, IBS, Crohn’s, gall bladder issues, elimination issues etc.), 2) Those suffering from chronic health symptoms seemingly unrelated to digestive health (Fibromyalgia, arthritis, thyroid imbalance, anxiety, depression etc.), and 3) Those looking to be proactive with their health and stop chronic issues before they start. Pure Simple Self does not practice medicine, but makes recommendations to improve nutritional imbalances in the body, which, in turn, causes long-term symptoms to disappear as a natural part of restorative health. Acute illness complaints will be referred to the client’s medical doctor.

Does insurance cover Pure Simple Self services or supplements?

Preventative or restorative health consulting is typically not covered by insurance. Most HSA’s or flexible spending accounts do pay, however, for Pure Simple Self services and supplements.

What company does Pure Simple Self use for nutritional supplementation?

Pure Simple Self primarily recommends supplements from Enzyme Formulations, Inc. From EFI: “Our products are manufactured exclusively by manufacturers in the United States that have been certified FDA GMP compliant by an independent third party. GMP stands for Good Manufacturing Practices, which are a set of guidelines drafted by the Food and Drug Administration specifically for the dietary supplement industry. These GMPs are similar to pharmaceutical GMPs in some important respects. They address everything from raw material handling and sampling through the manufacturing process to finished goods and product labeling.

We ensure our manufacturers’ continued compliance with the current FDA GMPs with an independent annual audit when needed. Our manufacturers must provide a certificate of analysis for each lot number shipped to our Madison headquarters for distribution. This certificate of analysis must indicate that the product meets our specifications for purity and safety. We then employ certified independent laboratories to randomly re-test the finished product and confirm the manufacturer’s provided certificate of analysis.

These laboratories verify the products meet EFI’s specifications using the most advanced equipment and test methods, including HPLC and GC-MS. These laboratories are also used to perform independent microbiological tests to ensure supplement purity and safety.”
