Thank you Sir for your reply. My insurance is a headache. BCBS is just a re-pricing agent and I was wondering if others knew how integrative medicine division billed. Do they use billable codes covered by most insurance or do patients end up paying out of pocket for most everything. (Example, does myofascial release get billed as PT treatment or is it considered a massage which isn't covered.)
I've been advised i have multiple different auto immune (scleroderma, Sjogren's, hashimotos) as well as autonomic challenges (POTS, MCAS, etc) and other challenges that i have no clue what they are classified under, all i know is each day is getting more challenging and there seems to be no answer or help.
If the 4 everyday health natural remedies are pretty much the only ways nausea is helped…. then there is no need for me to spend time and money i don't have to seek appointments.
I greatly appreciate your reply and the information you shared. Thank you.

Sorry for any confusion @dsv. The 4 everyday health natural remedies, as well as, Myofascial Release Therapy are not part Mayo Clinic's Integrative Medicine but just information shared that others have found helpful for different conditions. You might want to look at specific discussions for the conditions you listed to see what others have shared. Here are a few but you can easily search the list of discussions on the Connect home page here by typing a condition in the search box above the list of discussions (not the one on the top of the page) – https://connect.mayoclinic.org/.

Here are a few that I found:
