Functional Nutrition Program, remotely or in-person
Functional Nutrition Program
What is Functional Nutrition?
You are unique. You have your own biochemical code, health history, and lifestyle.
Your health program should be individual to you! I use functional nutrition as a key part of treating the root cause of your symptoms, helping you restore wellness, find balance in the body and prevent disease.
I will do an in-depth assessment to look at ALL of your body systems (not just the one causing symptoms). Based on your main concerns and what we discover in this analysis, I will recommend a set of testing that will provide the information necessary to assess the root cause of your health challenges.
From this thorough set of data, I will create a customized program just for you that meets you where you’re at in your current state of health and offers an actionable plan to follow.
In your program, you will get advice on diet, functional foods, lifestyle, and supplements.
Functional nutrition is a powerful tool by using food as a natural medicine to help restore balance, replete nutrient deficiencies, and more.
Functional nutrition focuses on the patient instead of the disease. It is a personalized method of optimizing your health based on your genetics, lab values, lifestyle, and more.
I use no generic meal plans or handouts because each person is different!
Your individual and unique Program!
We will work closely together to develop a comprehensive and customized Functional Nutrition Program specifically designed for your health situation and lifestyle.
Educating my clients using pictures, diagrams, clinical studies, and straightforward language is key, so that when you receive your personalized program, you understand it. If you can understand why you need to do something, you are much more likely to do it, and the “how” will naturally follow.
When I present you with your personalized protocol, I ensure that you understand how you reached your present level of health, so that you have a clear understanding of how you got to where you are, and more importantly, how you are going to get back to optimal health. By the time we have completed the second session, you will have a clear understanding of your main concern and how you will reach your health goals.
In the Functional Nutrition Program we go through a thorough symptom analysis. Based on your main concerns and what we discover in this analysis, I will recommend the set of testing that will provide the information necessary to assess the root cause of your health challenges. With the Functional Nutrition Program we are approaching your health from all angles, taking into account genetics, your biochemical make-up, blood work and other data.
What you can expect from the Functional Nutrition Program?
We will work closely in the first weeks of the program as we complete your diet and lifestyle assessment, a thorough intake, health history and symptom analysis. From this, I will determine the best testing for your needs. In certain cases, there will be a waiting period as tests are run and results are collected.
From this thorough set of data, I will create a customized program for you that meets you where you’re at in your current state of health and offers an actionable plan to follow for the first month.
For one month following the initial month of your program, I will be in close contact with you, monitoring your progress and making adjustments as needed.
How the program works
You will have 2-3 hours of one-on-one time with me. I spend additional time creating and customizing your program to suit your specific health requirements.
Step 1 Intake
Comprehensive health history intake
Symptom analysis and assessment of roughly 200 possible bodily symptoms
Diet and lifestyle assessment
Eating habit review
Drug and Supplement assessment (amount, brands, forms, interactions, etc.)
Review of existing blood work and other medical tests
Review of testing options that are most applicable to your needs
Step 2 Functional Medicine Testing and Analysis
Following the initial assessment, I will make a recommendation of the best set of testing for your needs.
This may include:
Personal genetic testing
Comprehensive digestive and microbial analysis
IgG food sensitivity testing
Cardiovascular and metabolic screening
Comprehensive hormone panel
Estrogen metabolite analysis
Functional adrenal stress profile
Iodine challenge test
Fatty acids profile
Heavy metals and hair mineral analysis
NOTE: Not all of these tests will be recommended. We will select the ones that make the most sense for your individual needs. (Tests are not included in the program price.)
Step 3 Customized Protocol
Once I have collected and thoroughly reviewed all the data, and applied it to the information gathered during the intake, I create an evidence-based customized program for you that includes:
Personalized information package on your main concern
Complete analysis of your test results
Therapeutic supplementation program
Step 4 Program Delivery
The full analysis and program development typically takes 1 week at which point we’ll meet again in person or via Skype where I will go through your entire program with you. This appointment usually lasts from 90 minutes to two hours. I ensure you fully understand your health challenges, how your test results impact your health, and how your program recommendations are going to work to heal and rebalance you. In short, you will know what you need to do, how you need to do it, and why you’re doing it.
Step 5 Ongoing Support
2 hours of follow up time with me will be used as we see fit to assess progress, and to make updates and changes as needed.
