I offer a patient-centered, integrative nutrition approach for both adult and pediatric populations. Looking at the root of your condition, rather than the symptoms alone, I will help you modify your diet and lifestyle to provide a supportive healing environment for chronic conditions such as:
Intuitive Eating Weight Management Program
Intuitive eating is an approach that frees you from the chains of dieting by teaching you how to create a healthy relationship with your food, mind, and body. It allows you to quiet the “monkey mind” that often accompanies decisions around food–“How many calories can I have?” Should I eat that?” “Is this good/bad for me?”. You will learn how to distinguish between physical and emotional hunger, and gain confidence in yourself when it comes to decisions about food. The underlying premise of the Intuitive Eating Program is that you will learn to get back in touch with the innate cues of your body that have been covered up by years of dieting mentality and rigidity around food. Your body knows what to do, it’s time to listen.
Cleanse RESET Detoxification Program
The Standard Process Purification Program helps your body purify and rebuild itself from the inside out. The program gives you a structured plan for purifying, nourishing, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Purification offers your body additional support to expel natural toxins and minimize your weight, which is important to maintaining your health and vitality. When you’ve completed the 21-day purification program, you’ll be amazed at how good you find yourself feeling. You’ll learn how to transition to a new, healthful way of eating that will continue your journey toward looking and feeling your best for a lifetime.
These consultations focus on optimal health, wellness, energy, and longevity. I educate clients with a focus on whole, clean foods, therapeutic use of functional foods, stress reduction, improving sleep, and reducing exposure to environmental toxins. People to consider this service may include: overweight individuals, over-worked/stressed people, athletes, moms, those suffering with digestive or infertility symptoms or people seeking vitamin/mineral/herbal supplement education or recommendations.
Food and Chemical Sensitivities or Allergies
I am a Certified L.E.A.P. Therapist (CLT). Which means I have received advanced clinical training in adverse food reactions, including food allergies, food sensitivities, and food intolerances. CLTs know how to assist clients with the L.E.A.P. Diet Protocols based on the Mediator Release Test (MRT) blood test, which tests 150 different food and chemical sensitivities.
Using Mediator Release Testing (MRT), I can determine what foods and chemicals you are sensitive to. You will receive a customized food plan so that you are able to avoid the foods that are harmful to you and still have a variety of nutritious and delicious foods available to you every day.
Functional Lab Testing
Comprehensive Nutritional Panel
This micronutrient test measures the function of 35 nutritional components including vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and amino acids within our white blood cells, giving an accurate analysis of a body’s deficiencies. This panel may be useful for the patient with poor energy, stress intolerance, history of eating disorders or poor dietary habits, sleep disruptions, skin issues, mood imbalances, and those wanting clarification on what supplements they do and do not need.
Digestive Health Panel through stool analysis
This panel will help us determine where to target your gut healing protocol by testing for parasite, fungal, yeast, and bacterial infections, inflammatory markers, good and bad bacteria levels, and food sensitivities. This panel may be useful for the patient with irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, diarrhea, gas, bloating, cramping, abdominal pain, crohn’s, colitis, reflux, skin issues, and food intolerances.
Adrenal Stress Index through saliva collection
This panel investigates the insulin-cortisol relationship under real-life conditions to allow targeted and effective interventions. This panel may be useful in many clinical situations including: Poor energy, stress intolerance, chronic fatigue, sleep disruptions, rapid weight gain or obesity, abnormal blood lipid levels, muscle wasting, early diabetes, and associated symptoms.
Tours and Classes
I also offer grocery tours for groups or individuals as well as group education classes. Learn about what is in the foods you eat every day and the small changes you can make to improve the quality of your diet.
