(personalized support in achieving your goals)
Now that you've read about your First Steps, it's time to dive in!
We know how hard it can be to get started on a new path or program; lots of new materials, new thoughts, new foods, new habits to build, old habits to break…It can get quite overwhelming pretty quickly!
Thankfully, we also know that adequate support and encouragement along this new path can prove to be an invaluable resource to maintaining growth and progress toward your goals.
Since people need all kinds of support as they begin their personal journeys (email correspondence, phone or video calls, in-office check-ins, web resources, informational PDF handouts, etc.), and no two-people are going to need the exact same package of support, we’ve designed our Support Membership programs! These memberships are designed to offer you personalized and flexible support as you begin (or continue) your journey to wellness and vibrant health.
This means that rather than the typical practice that charges you a separate fee for every single interaction you have (ranging anywhere from $25 to $250 per interaction!), our Memberships offer you a wide variety options for growth, support, and consultations throughout the month for a reasonable monthly fee.
Whether you are new to the world of nutrition and alternative health or simply desire a greater degree of healthful accountability to achieve your goals, our flexible Credit-based membership system allows you to build the perfect, personalized package to suit your needs and help you achieve your goals.
New Clients will be automatically enrolled in a 1-month membership to our SPROUT program when they choose to move forward with Wise Bear and sign their Client Contract at the end of the WATER consultation.
Once you complete the first month of your SPROUT program, you can choose one of 2 options:
- Continue with your SPROUT membership
- Move to our lower-level support membership: GROW.
What's included in a support membership?
- Access to our interactive Client Portal
- Personal Nutritional Recommendations Sheet ("NRS") and Short Term Action Plan posted to your Client Portal after every consultation
- Consultation notes and additional clinical recommendations posted with each new NRS
- Access to lots of PDF resources (shared through the Client Portal)
- Access to web resources
- Access to our online scheduling program and invoice tracker (hosted by Ovatu)
- Automated text and email consultation reminders

- Invitations to events and webinars pertaining to nutritional or holistic health (topics such as Quick and Easy Meal Prep, cooking demos, or guided shopping trips)
- Weekly gratitude meditations for mental support on your journey
- And, most importantly, access to the wealth of knowledge and support that is your Nutritional Therapist outside of in-office consultations.

(continued support on a lower frequency level)
Congratulations! You've accomplished most or all of your health goals! Good for you.
These Memberships were designed specifically to suit your maintenance support needs. Maintenance members often require very little active support from us, but, tend to want to maintain access to all of the awesome benefits of a support Membership or need a quick check-in ("mini consultation") once in a while. If that is where you are, than look no further! Choose from one of our two low-level maintenance support memberships and keep on growing!
FLOURISH (typical maintenance support membership): continued support offered to keep you on track after you've achieved the majority of your goals.
Standard Maintenance Number of Credits: up to 4 per month
Minimum Contract: 3-month
Investment for your health: $76 per month
Maintenance Bonus: Roll-Over Credits
Hooray! You made it - you've graduated to our maintenance program! We knew you could do it. Great job accomplishing those goals! This means that you may not need direct support from us every month.
But, what if you want to stay connected, maybe have a Mini Consultation (5-15 minutes) here and there? What if you travel, or only need an in-office consultation every few months? What if you want to maintain access to all of the benefits of your support membership? Than our FLOURISH membership is perfect for you!
Our FLOURISH membership includes 4 credits per month (equal to 1-hour of your Nutritional Therapist's time), spread across any type of interaction that suits your needs. And, the Maintenance Bonus gives you something no other membership does: Roll-Over Credits.
This means that any of your unused credits will now roll-over to the next month, until the end of your contract! So, if you only need a 10-minute Mini Consultation (5-15 minutes) one month, and a full 60-minute consultation the next month, you'll have the 6 credits you need for the consultation waiting for you on your account.
For more information on how to use credits, please click on the Flourish image and check out our Memberships FAQ.
SUSTAIN (minimal maintenance support membership): continued support offered to keep you on track after you've achieved the majority of your goals.
Mini Maintenance Number of Credits: 1 credit per month
Minimum Contract: 6-months
Investment for your health: $19 per month
Maintenance Bonus: Roll-Over Credits
Our SUSTAIN membership allows you all of the same benefits of our FLOURISH membership, but at a significantly reduced rate of support.
This membership includes just 1 credit per month (equal to 15-minutes of your Nutritional Therapist's time), spread across any type of interaction that suits your needs. And, just like the FLOURISH (our typical support membership) the Maintenance Bonus applies here, too! This means that any of your unused credits will now roll-over to the next month, until the end of your contract!
This is the best membership option for someone who really only needs a 30-minute consultation once very quarter (3-month intervals), or who would like a 60-minute consultation twice per year (once every 6 months). Members may also use their 1 credit per month for a 10-15 minute Mini Consultation (5-15 minutes) each month. Perfect for that little nudge in the right direction!
This Membership allows you to accrue credits while keeping your membership active so that you can maintain access to all of your Membership benefits and receive care at a reduced rate when compared to our à la carte options.
For more information on how to use credits, please click on the Sustain image and check out our Memberships FAQ.

Booster packs for Active Members
What if you need additional support during a month, but you've run out of credits? No problem! As an active Member, you can always purchase a booster pack of additional credits for extra support to get you over the hump on any particular month.
BOOSTER PACK (3 credits/pack).......................$45.00
(1 credit equals up to 15-minutes of practitioner time)
non-membership (À la carte) options
Some of our clients prefer to opt-out of our monthly maintenance program, but, still want to check-in with us once in a while in order to maintain the progress they've made in attaining their goals.
So, what do you do if you've opted-out of our maintenance membership, but have a question, would like to check-in, or would like a consultation to make sure you're still on track? Add a little potting soil to help you grow! That should do the trick.
These à la carte options are offered on an as-needed basis for clients who have graduated to Maintenance but don't want to maintain an active membership
(total practitioner time: 90-minutes)
(total practitioner time: 45-minutes)
Phone, Email, or Messaging Support.........$26
(per 15-minutes of practitioner time)
