Integrative Functional Nutritionist
What is Functional Nutrition?
It is nutrition-based care that is focused on building health by restoring proper physiological functioning of the body. When you have multiple symptoms they are clues to the ways in which your body is not functioning the way it should be. Rather than suppress those symptoms with natural or pharmaceutical agents, we want to “read” those symptoms to understand which systems of your body need support to get back on track and get you healthy again. By looking at your whole picture -- diet, symptoms, illness history, medications, lifestyle, toxic exposure, history of antibiotic use, stress, lab work, etc., we are able to put together an overall plan. That plan serves as overall map of the nutrition your body needs to regain health and prevent illness.
Your Personalized Nutrition Plan includes:
- Goal setting
- Recommendations that support your needs and goals
- Healing foods and recipes
- Coaching and counseling
- Meal planning
- Dietary supplements as needed
- Education about self-care
- Mindfulness practices
