Fully comprehensive programs in which you will gain…
…and much, much more to be truly healthy!
Are you ready to stop chasing symptoms and take charge of your own health and wellness?
Are you willing to put in the work to discover what is preventing you from feeling and performing at your best?
Are you ready to stop slapping band-aids on the problem and get to the root cause?
If you answered yes these questions then it’s time to start now on your Epic Health Journey!
I’d like to take a moment to explain the logic behind Functional Diagnostic Nutrition (FDN), the method behind my Holistic Health Coaching Programs. Besides a thorough health history and in-depth questionnaire, which is the primary diagnostic tool for any health system, the FDN method uses state of the art lab tests to examine the three major systems of the body. You can see these systems illustrated in the diagram below.
The neuroendocrine system includes the health of the adrenal response and HPA-Axis, thyroid function, sex hormone regulation, cellular energy production, and neurotransmitter activity.
The GI system, which includes checking for the presence of pathogens and infections, leaky gut, nutrient absorption, food sensitivities, and the status of the microbiome,
The detox system, including the two phases of liver detox, the presence of environmental toxins, chemical sensitivities, methylation, inflammation, and the overall ability for the body to remove a toxic burden.
In order to properly create an optimal self-treatment plan, these systems need to be tested and corrected in a specific order. In the majority of cases, we start with an adrenal function test, because the health of the body’s stress response is at the core of how well all the other systems will respond. If the stress response is significantly disrupted then ruling out gut infections and detox issues become imperative.
For expediency sake I highly recommend all essential tests be done at the start of the program so that a comprehensive picture of the health status is acquired. This avoids potentially months of addressing what was thought to be a simple stress response problem when it turns out there was actually some kind of missed infection in the body, environmental toxin, or something else that ends up truly being at the root of the patient’s health complaint. Further testing to investigate the presence of other factors such as heavy metals, mycotoxins, and genetic factors may be necessary and will be informed by an in-depth screening questionnaire and baseline tests
Any expanded or simplified testing needs will be explained at your initial consultation so that you understand exactly why we are gathering the information that we are.
While every program is different because it will be tailored specifically to your body and goals, here are the basic steps that we will take…
1. Free 20 Minute Discovery Session
All new clients begin with a 20-minute Discovery Session to get to know each other, explain how I work, and answer any initial questions that you may have. The goal of this session is to help you feel empowered to take your health into your own hands and understand that I will be there to support and educate you in this process. You can book this session on the Online Booking page.
2. Order Labs & Complete Intake Forms
The next step once you sign up will be to order any lab kits that might be relevant to your case. As you wait for those kits to arrive, several intake forms will be shared with you online to be filled out at your earliest convenience. You will also be asked to fill out a 3-day food and symptom journal. Once complete, we can schedule our initial consultation.
3. Initial Consultation
For our first consultation, we will discuss the nature of the coaching relationship, your health history, your health goals, as well as review your intake forms and food journal. This all helps form a customized plan for your unique needs. By this time, you should have most of your labs completed as we wait for results. Expect 2 to 4 weeks for all labs results to arrive.
4. Results & Recommendations
Once your lab results have arrived, we will schedule a 90-120 minute Results & Recommendation session. Results will be shared with you within 24 hours of this session. Your R&R session will include detailed lab analysis and symptom correlation, followed by a comprehensive 90-day diet and lifestyle protocol. Supplements and nutraceuticals will be offered to you via my online Wellevate disat discounted rates.
Several 30-60 min follow-up sessions will be booked every few weeks as needed for the next 3-6 months depending on your package. These sessions are intended to help track progress, troubleshoot, provide accountability, and give you any guidance that might be needed to help you through your journey.
6. Re-evaluation Session
During our re-evaluation session, we will reassess symptoms, and evaluate room for further improvement. Emphasis will be placed on continuing your new healthy habits far beyond our time together. Remember, the road to health is a lifelong journey, and doesn’t end with our coaching relationship!
It is often the case that follow-up testing is recommended in order to track progress, or in light of additional clues that come up along the way. Additional lab reviews are offered to existing clients at wholesale price. Any lab fees are in addition to the initial round of tests.
The Foundation Program is where we can begin helping you create a solid base for restoring your health and wellbeing. In this plan, we will help you dig deep into the results of your Blood Chemistry, GI-MAP, DUTCH, and OAT tests. We consider these 4 tests to be essential for understanding how the key systems in your body are functioning and will uncover any dysfunction so that we can work to optimize your health.
This program is not a diet or motivational coaching, but rather the perfect blend of state of the art functional lab testing, science-based supplement plan, expert nutrition coaching, and tailored lifestyle guidance. This program typically takes 3-4 months to complete.
One-sized fit all programs don’t work for everyone so this program is all about personalization – your nutrition, your goals, your body.
* Any additional labs tests that are recommended or requested will be invoiced separately
The Intensive Program is an extremely thorough approach to create long-lasting health and wellbeing. Like the Foundation Program, this plan will help you dig deep into the results of your Blood Chemistry, GI-MAP, DUTCH, and OAT tests.
