Nutritional therapy looks at the body as a whole, and realized that every single person is different and has different needs. The goal is to focus on foundational issues to resolve issues using a balanced diet of whole food.
This first meeting will be 1 hour long, and will be an in-depth initial interview so I can get a feel for where you are with your health, what your main concerns are, and what your goals are. There will be a comprehensive questionnaire that I will have you fill out before we meet, and I will also have you complete a 3-day food journal leading up to our scheduled appointment.
The Functional Evaluation is an optional assessment. During the evaluation, I will find certain points on your body that correspond with certain systems and organs in the body, and have you give me a tenderness rating. These points on the body are found mainly in lymph tissue or nerve centers, and any tenderness in these points can correspond with irritation or inflammation in certain parts of the body.
The follow-up session is an meeting where we can go over any changes you have experienced, retake the questionnaire, and see if any additional recommendations are needed. The first follow-up will be 2 weeks after the initial interview, and after that, there will be a few different options depending on how often you want to meet.
