What do you mean by FUNCTIONAL NUTRITION?
What do you mean by FUNCTIONAL NUTRITION?
Functional Nutrition is a way of looking at you as a whole person. My aim to get your body back to “function”. It’s a treatment approach that looks at the body as a functional unit that is connected to itself at every level. When one area of your body is not functioning properly, everything else is out of balance. The goal is to address how one area may be affecting the rest of your body. I use diet and lifestyle modifications to get your body back in balance.
What can I expect from Nourished Functional Nutrition?
I believe that every symptom has a root cause and I work together with you to uncover the reasons why you may be experiencing symptoms and imbalance. I’m constantly searching for the reason why a condition is manifesting itself to help you come up with true resolution. All this while looking at your lifestyle and nutritional needs.
I’m eager to work with your medical or practitioner team because I believe that when you gather people to work on your behalf to help you achieve your goals, everybody wins.
I know that your condition is not isolated from the rest of you. Your body works in perfect harmony to create health. The condition that you are experiencing whether it’s migraines, gut issues, autoimmunity, resistant weight loss or any other health dysfunction, is happening to your entire body. I work with you to help you make connections for healing and I focus on your nutrition and lifestyle factors to help you get back to the vibrant health you’re seeking.
When conventional methods are not working, I help you take back control of your health so you can start changing the things you are able to change. By partnering with you, I help you become a detective of your own body so in the end, you will be able to know what you need to do in order to bring balance back to your life.
Where do I go for an appointment?
I provide you with a fully virtual practice at Nourished Functional Nutrition. This means that you can phone or use teleconferencing from anywhere in the world. You will also have access to me through email between appointments if you have any questions or concerns.
This may be a new way of communicating for you, but you will find that we can provide you with everything you need from the comfort of your own home or office. It is this flexibility that has allowed me to develop a program that fits all lifestyles.
Can I order supplements or supplement refills?
I do offer a selection of supplements that I have carefully curated for their efficacy and purity. You can order supplements through our online store by following this link. Additionally, during counseling, I may recommend other supplements, which may be available online.
Please know that you are not obligated to purchase recommended supplements from my website. I carry them for your ease and for my concern about the storage methods in which supplements are kept before they arrive to you in your home. As my client, you will get a discount on all supplements available through our providers.
Do you accept insurance?
Your health and wellness are my priority. My financial policy allows me to provide you with access to the best nutrition and lifestyle care available and does not limit your care to what is covered by health insurance policies. Like many functional medicine practices, the Nourished Functional Nutrition services are an out-of-pocket expense. I’m unable to provide insurance billing codes or NPI numbers, which is outside of my scope of practice as a nutrition and lifestyle professional, but I’m happy to partner with any other practitioners on your team. I do have clients who submit their invoice to their insurance directly for a percentage coverage, or work with their workplace health savings account to receive some compensation. I encourage you to explore these options.
Can you prescribe medication?
As a nutrition and lifestyle professional, it is outside of my scope of practice to diagnose conditions or prescribe medication. As noted above, I will work with your medical practitioners to bring my perspective and recommendations forward when appropriate.
It sounds like you work with really sick people, I just need to lose 10 pounds, should I move forward with counseling?
Although it sounds like I only see very sick people, I believe all people can benefit from a diet that provides the best nutrition possible for their lifestyle. I am dedicated to providing services to all people. I encourage you to book a 15-minute free consultation to be sure my services are the right fit for you. Please take a look at the free resources I provide and consider starting with one of our cleanses or a one hour consultation, which may be just enough to help you get started losing a few pounds. If you need additional help, I’m here to provide you in-depth nutritional counseling to fit your individual and family’s needs.
