Discovering Unique Nutritional Needs

I use Functional Nutrition in a holistic approach to help my clients discover their unique nutrition needs, so they always know how to eat to feel and look at their best. 

Using various functional assessment tools I help my clients find the missing link in their health struggles, and implement safe and effective nutrition protocols and remedies, so they can support the body’s natural ability to heal and function at its potential.

My Process

1. Collecting Information and Personal Evidence

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. Analyzing and Evaluating

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. Strategizing and Planning

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. Coaching and Support

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 shifts into life-long habits for lasting results.

5. Observe and Monitor

Observe and monitor. Re-assess and re-test. Pivot and tune. Continue the investigation to achieve optimal functioning.
