Introducing Kaitlyn Barnett, FNP-BC, CFMP - Your Partner in Holistic Health and Wellness!

Hello, I'm Kaitlyn Barnett, a dedicated and Board-Certified Family Nurse Practitioner and certified functional medicine practitioner with a profound passion for functional and holistic medicine. My journey in healthcare began as a nurse within the Medical Industrial Complex, but as I advanced in my career, I made a solemn commitment never to look back. It was paramount for me to practice medicine ethically and in alignment with my deeply held values. This unwavering commitment has driven me to establish Countermeasure Wellness.
In my quest to understand the intricacies of the human body, I've always found the circulatory system, and especially blood, incredibly fascinating. Leviticus 17:11 reminds us that "For the life of a creature is in the blood," and this holds true even today. As a healthcare provider, I've come to understand that blood work and various forms of lab testing offer invaluable insights into the health and disease states of our bodies. Blood, in essence, carries the essential elements of life throughout our being.
One striking revelation during my journey as a Practitioner has been the exorbitant costs associated with lab work, with many vital tests often not covered by insurance. I've long known that insurance companies do not always act in the best interests of patients. However, when I encountered patients who needed specific lab testing but couldn't afford it, I felt compelled to bridge this gap. I am resolute in my desire to provide comprehensive care and equip my patients with the vital information they deserve about their own bodies.
To achieve this goal, I sought more in-depth and insightful information than corporate lab companies could provide. Thus, I embarked on a journey to learn about, vet, and collaborate with different functional lab companies offering groundbreaking tests. These labs not only provide a wealth of crucial data but also offer exceptional value for money. I've invested significant time and effort in ensuring that I work exclusively with the best functional lab companies. Additionally, I've undergone extensive training in my functional medicine program to interpret these labs and apply evidence-based treatment protocols to optimize the health of my patients.
Lab testing is the absolute best way I can gather objective data on my patients, find the root cause of health issues and track the data to ensure there is progress and improvement. I want to be able to bring these to you for a great cost without the monthly commitment or without price being a roadblock to quality care- which is why I have started Countermeasure Wellness Functional Medicine! 

Lab testing, in my professional opinion, is the most effective means to gather objective data, unearth the root causes of health issues, and track progress and improvement over time. It is my sincere desire to make these invaluable resources accessible to you. The beauty of our approach is that it is all done virtually!
