Treatment Options For International Families

Let us just explain that we do actually want to offer help for our international families. But before you invest in our care it's important to know how we can assist and some of the challenges we've become very aware of over the years in helping those located outside of the US. It is possible but we'd like you to know in advance what to expect.

We’d like to start by providing links to our site explaining what we do. If how we treat speaks to your values as a family, this information can be used as a guide if you want to book a telemedicine appointment (online doctors appointment) or for yourself that can be given to your doctors there in your country in hopes they will provide the care we feel is needed to effectively treat your child’s reflux.

START BY WATCHING THE VIDEO ON THIS PAGE THAT EXPLAINS HOW WE TREAT AND WHY IT WORKS

If after watching the video, you feel we can assist you directly then here is an outline of steps and costs.
The cost of the telemedicine appointment is from $150 to $275 out of pocket - depending on the provider you choose.
This link will give you all the service information provided with that cost.

In addition to the appointment cost there will be a treatment plan, which may include prescriptions for medications. You may need to have the prescription filled here in the US and shipped to you. These cost vary and we can not quote these as it depends on the treatment plan and how you decide to execute that plan. Medications are not included in the appointment cost.

If a proton pump inhibitor is used in part of the treatment plan we can offer several options to help.

  • We can send the prescription to the pharmacy we recommend as they use a product called TC Max to compound the medications. They are a separate business and you can contact them for costs. You can also send any prescription you currently have to them directly if you decide to work with your doctor directly.

  • You can have us send the prescription to any other pharmacy here in the USA to have your prescription filled and shipped to you. All you need to do is choose the pharmacy and provide us the contact information and we will connect with them directly.
  • You can use a TC Max Kit. However, that kit is designed to be used under the guidance and supervision of a medical care professional. TC Max company can not provide dosing or mixing instructions without a doctors prescription. That prescription can also come from your doctor if they are willing to assist.
    Here is the link to purchase

To use this kit you must purchase an over the counter PPI. Most recently, options have become available to the UK and Ireland by purchasing online through Amazon. In fact if you live in other countries you can purchase from Amazon UK and send to some other countries but please verify this to your specific country.

For thos located in Austrailia. It is now possible to purchase Nexium so using the TC Max kit could be an option for you.

We are not promoting these links, nor do we have any affiliate programs set up for providing you this information. It is just a way for us to serve you in getting help for your child.

Costs involed for international family

  • Cost to have anything  shipped is dependent on how quickly you want the medications to arrive but will typically be shipped UPS international.
  • You must check with your customs to ensure you will not have trouble receiving medications. Once shipped, the pharmacy or the TC Max Company will not reimburse for medications that get stuck in customs nor will they pay for customs fees.
  • If you are able to acquire over the counter medications such as Proton Pump Inhibitors (Nexium, Omeprazole, Prevacid, Lansoprazole and others), you can purchase a home compounding kit from the TC Max company. They only provide the kit and are not able to provide you any dosing or care instructions if you want to use the kit with a PPI. Legally, here in the US, this must be under the instruction of a qualified medical provider.

Other support information

You can ALWAYS get support in our Facebook group and there are hundreds of families and moms, both nationally and internationally that can assist you in ways we can not if you do not plan to use our telemedicine options.

Medical articles and literature to support how we treat infant reflux disease (GERD). Use these pages to show your doctors after you research yourself. These are documented clinical studies that support what we do and why it works. Your doctor should be open to them.

Our team and the services provided if you feel we can assist you with a doctors appointment and you agree with our protocol for treatment.

Please take the time to research these pages as we do not provide individual questionnaire responses to international submissions because we need everyone to understand the challenges before moving forward with the way we treat.

Your understanding is greatly appreciated and hoping you find care for your child if we are not a good fit for you.
