Feel confident in your food choices.
Integrative, holistic and functional nutrition services
You want more than the absence of disease.
You want to feel vibrant, confident, energetic and motivated every day.
A Nourishing Approach™ is collaborative, non-judgmental, empowering and positive. Using a Nourishing Approach™ you will learn about your body’s needs and the foods, supplements and lifestyle habits best suited to you. You will learn to trust in your body, its innate wisdom and its ability to heal.
You can get there.
To live the life you want, a mindful awareness-based practice will get you there. This means no pre-fabricated menus or diet plans! Get to the root causes and do more than treat symptoms.
In this 90-minute session we will discuss your current lifestyle and eating behaviors/patterns. This will be an in-depth nutrition and lifestyle analysis, which includes a review of:
Goals, values and desired outcomes
Personal and family health history
Lab evaluations: please bring current lab work (if you have it) and we will discuss recommendations for additional lab tests to evaluate nutritional status, digestion, and food intolerances. Basic blood panels, advanced lipid profile, hormone panels, food sensitivity tests and gut health tests may be considered.
Discussion of stress, sleep and coping strategies
Review of supplements and medications
In this session you will receive an initial nutrition plan that is based on your goals, health status and nutrient needs. The plan will entail food/nutrition recommendations, as well as recommendations related to exercise, sleep, stress and supplements, as appropriate for you.
Follow Up Sessions/Nutrition Coaching
To achieve your goals, follow up is often necessary. Often there is too much to cover in one session and follow up is needed to continue our conversation. Additionally, this is a dynamic process. In follow up session, we will monitor your progress, reassess your goals and expand your plan to suit your lifestyle. Follow up sessions are either 45-minutes or 25-minutes. The number and frequency of follow up sessions will depend on your needs and goals.
Sometimes we need to work outside of the box! We can do a Grocery Store Tour or Kitchen Makeover. We can Dine Out or do Personal Cooking Class. There are many ways to build your confidence in the complexities of nutrition.
With all nutrition services, the sky is the limit and it’s all about you. Everything you receive during nutrition coaching sessions will be based on your unique needs.
