People often underestimate how much the loss of health and vitality could cost them. I had battled with several health issues, which left me no choice but to end the career in the 30’s. The direct wage loses over the years is over a million dollar, let alone the loss of vitality, physical pain, and mental distress. Click here to read my story!

People also underestimate how much they could do to influence their health destinies, making it scary to devote the necessary time and money. True healing can happen, when you take charge of your own health, get the obstacles out of the way of your healing, and apply the health-promoting protocols that restore normal functions.

Are you concerned your health issues might stop you from pursuing your ultimate vision? Are you tired of being chronically sick? Your health growth will parallel your personal growth, and create a ripple effect of life transformation. Just imagine being symptom free, functioning at 100% and living to your full potential! I am sure you will find they are so worth your investment.

I work with all my clients in packages, because this is the best way to meet the clients’ needs. As much as we may wish for magic pills and quick fixes, they don’t exist. Healing is a journey. It requires time, dedication, and commitment, from both client and practitioner.

A package structure allows me to allocate quality time to understand your health situation, analyze your assessment results, and investigate your case. It also provides the framework to dig deep into all the hidden stressors that impact your health, connect the dots, build personalized healing protocol, and develop step-by-step actionable plans.

Like in every journey, there is a starting point, with rest stops and course changes along the way. Working together in the course of time helps us develop deeper, longer-lasting relationships, which is so critical in the healing process. I will give you the ongoing support and necessary push when you are on the threshold of a breakthrough.

The package structure sets you up for success and better result.

Depending on your health needs and goals, available budget, required support, and time duration. Feel free to schedule a free discovery call with me, I am more than happy to help you find an option that best suits your need.

Program Questions

My coaching programs are designed to follow a proven healing roadmap in a logical sequence that is guided by physiology and science. They are also customized based on your health needs and goals, available budget, required support, and targeted time duration.

Each of the options consists of 5 phases:

  1. Collect information and personal evidence through thorough history intake, well-chosen functional lab testing and various assessment tools. Have a comprehensive understanding of how diet, nutrition intake, lifestyle, pathogen risk, toxic load, childhood experiences, and important life events impact the body.
  2. Analyze and evaluate the data within the Functional framework to gain deep understanding of the biological terrain. Look upstream to find the underlying imbalance and contributors to the loss of normal function. Identify hidden stressors and deficiencies. Investigate healing opportunities.
  3. Strategize the healing roadmap with clear priority and focus. Develop personalized nutrition program to balance the foundational systems through diet, rest, movement, stress reduction and supplementation.
  4. Coach and support along the journey, check progress and conformity, guide course correction, provide honest feedback and accountability. Overcome distraction, interruption and self-limiting beliefs. Turn dietary and lifestyle shits into life-long habits for lasting results.
  5. Observe and monitor. Re-assess and re-test. Pivot and tune. Continue the investigation to achieve optimal functioning.

Balance & Strengthen

Thrive & Transform 

I typically utilize four types of tools in my functional holistic nutrition practice.

  • Assessment tools. These include various well-designed questionnaires, self- assessments, symptom survey, journaling, self-check record. Such tools include but not limit to: Health History Analysis, Nutritional Assessment, Lifestyle Assessment, Symptom Burden Analysis, Food, Mood & Poop Journal, Metabolic Chaos Assessment, Adrenal Stress Cause Analysis, Diet Type Assessment, functions assessment for different body systems, etc.
  • Functional lab testing. Lab testing adds objective data into the investigation work, provides deeper insights about how the body functions and underlying mechanism. Most of functional labs are urine, saliva, and stool-based, making it non-invasive and convenient to do in the comfort of your own home. This allows me to get extremely specific and targeted with my recommendations for diet, supplements, and lifestyle changes. It takes out the guess work, no more trial-and-error, only clear direction and quicker result. The functional lab testing typically includes food sensitivities, GI functions and structure integrity, metabolism wellness, pathogen overgrowth, detoxification indicators, stress and hormones profiles, energy production, immune functions, and nutrient markers, etc.
  • Healing tools. These may include therapeutic foods and nutrients, therapeutic diet plans, pharmaceutical grade nutritional supplements and botanicals, detoxification programs, remedies and regimen, health-promoting practice (such as meditation, mindfulness, breath work, journaling, spiritual practice, etc.), and lifestyle changes (such as pre-meal rituals, pre-bed routine, morning routine, exercise, and self-care practice).
  • Coaching tools. These may include goals setting and tracking, growth mindset, vision board, strategies and coping mechanisms to address negative thoughts, false beliefs, and addictive behavior, self-worth and self-expression, principles to create foundational health habits, etc.

Too often people try things here and there without a systematic roadmap. They want to fix the problem without addressing the basics first. They look for quick fix and shortcut, follow cookie cutter diet and generic healing protocols without discovering and addressing their bio-individuality. They introduce too many or too big changes without professional guidance, tools, resources and corrective strategies.

I take a true functional approach, always look for underlying imbalance and hidden stressors. I follow a systematic roadmap, respect the body’s healing priority and focus on nutritional foundations that promote self-healing and lead to long term result. My program is based on the guiding principles of Nutritional Therapy and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition, both are proven systems that helped thousands of people resolve their health challenges. This complete and total reliance on science, rather than on emotions, preferences, popular concepts, or fad ideas sets it apart from others.

As a holistic nutritionist, I do not diagnose and treat anything specifically.

In addition, I do not control the result.

It all depends on how deeply we continue the investigation and how strictly the clients follow the protocols and recommendations. However, clients can have a reasonable expectation. I am here to support and guide you step-by-step at every point during the program. If you allow me to take all the steps to identify the healing opportunities and hidden stressors, and you are able to follow the protocols and apply wellness principles diligently, I am very confident your will achieve your health goals.

Although a specific clinical outcome can’t be guaranteed, here is what I can guarantee:

    • I will work tirelessly to investigate your case and identify the hidden stressors.
    • I will help you discover and implement the most targeted and comprehensive approach for achieving your health goals.
    • I will provide the highest quality of personal care I can.

We will work together to investigate the hidden stressors and identify the healing opportunities. As we start to implement the targeted therapy and apply wellness principles, your body will be given the chance to heal. Just simply change the diet (like remove reactive foods, balance blood sugar, optimize macronutrient ratio), some clients start to feel difference and notice significant improvement.

It probably took years for your problem to develop, so it will take some time to heal. But if you have a guiding hand, put together personalized plan and offer the right tools, you will move forward a lot faster than struggling yourself.

Ideal weight is a direct manifestation of good health. There are multiple factors contributing to the weight problem, such as nutrient imbalance, gut dysbiosis, toxin overload, blood sugar irregularities, insulin resistance, stress, lack of sleep, inflammatory foods, poor diet, hormone imbalance, etc. If these underlying causes are not addressed, the ideal weight can not be achieved and maintained in the long run. 

Those outdated thinking of “calories in calories out”, “eat less exercise more” is proven to be ineffective. Once we remove reactive foods and reduce the inflammation, the fluid retention is reduced. Once we enhance the metabolic flexibility, the body is able to use stored energy (fat) as fuel. So weight loss is often experienced as a byproduct, when the body starts healing and returns to a place of balance, but with greater ease than you solely focus on weight loss.

Once you eat clean and healthy whole foods, once you figure out the foods and macronutrient ratios that are right for your metabolic type, your body gets connected instinctively with the right amount of food to eat, so you always get satisfied with the right amount of calories. Your body will gradually shift toward the nature weight and stay there for the rest of your life.

To overcome your health challenge and achieve your health goals, you do need to give some time and effort and prioritize self-care. There are no magic pills. The program will require a shift in behavior and a change in mindset. It does take some work and willingness to try new things. However, as you’re working toward making small daily changes that lead to long-lasting healthy habits, you will still need to live your life. I always meet my clients where they are. Together we will find an approach that works for your unique situation. Over the years of helping people get better, I saw the value of taking baby steps. Those small shifts add up over time and lead to big result.

The medical approach is to diagnose and treat specific diseases, so the panel of conventional lab tests is used to look for established disease patterns. Functional lab testing provides an evaluation of an organ’s functional value or its capacity to fulfil its physiological function. Although functional lab tests cover a number of quantitative diagnostic procedures, they are particularly useful in avoiding or reversing chronic conditions and optimizing wellness.

Functional lab testing may include blood, stool, urine, saliva or hair samples to provide information about a variety of systems including hormonal, immune, digestion, detoxification, energy production, metabolic, nutritional and others. It provides deeper understanding of why dysfunction is occurring, and conduces to effective strategies to restore balance.
