“I am a functional medicine nutritionist but I really like to think of myself as a Medical Nutrition Detective. I work with adults who are struggling with a bunch of seemingly unrelated symptoms such as difficultly managing weight, sleep issues that lead to fatigue, brain fog and difficulty concentrating, anxiety, pain, and often a variety of GI issues or other symptoms. I consider all the factors that affect health, history and lifestyle, functional lab tests, genetics, personal and environmental factors. This allows me to determine what is contributing to their symptoms and create a personalized blueprint to resolve their physical concerns, including improved energy, better weight management, improved sleep and resolution of GI issues. The ultimate goal is to teach and empower each person to take control of their health and vitality.”
I help you look for the reasons you aren’t feeling your best and help you find a precision path to reaching your goals. You will learn to take care of yourself with foods, lifestyle/environmental adjustments, and nutritional support based on your own biochemical needs. My job is to teach you to get in touch with the signals your body is giving you, and to apply holistic solutions throughout the rest of your life…Instead of guessing what is wrong or treating symptoms which may lead to side effects.
I may suggest a particular specialty tests based on your needs and the way you answer your initial forms. We will discuss the rationale for a particular test so you understand why it might be helpful.
I work with people all over the planet. Appointments can be scheduled over the phone, internet or in person. I also offer a free 15 minute phone call so you can see if your would like to work together. Please email me email@example.com or call me 800 692-9711 to schedule a time to talk.
The initial consultation will last 1 to 1 1/2 hours. We will discuss your history, lifestyle dynamics, and any current laboratory results (if you have any to present). At the initial consultation we also determine whether there is a need for additional testing, why, and make a plan.
We use a myriad of specialty testing not often found in conventional labs. Appropriate testing will help pinpoint and direct treatment providing information such as nutritional needs or deficiencies, genetic markers, food allergies, metabolic abnormalities, food sensitivities, gastrointestinal, neurotransmitter, and adrenal function. Some labs are covered by insurance and some are not. Follow-ups will be discussed and planned.
All appointments can be conducted remotely in the privacy of your own home or office or in person.
The first follow up we will discuss your lab results. We will determine the best road map to accomplish your goals. The goal is to get you standing on your own two feet by teaching you how to put together foods that heal and make you feel your best. Followups are customized to discuss progress, explore what is working or not working to get you to your goals. Finding the root of symptoms and treating them may take a little more time than taking a pill. Plan to correct the source of the symptom rather than treating the symptom. The most successful results include 2 follow-up appointments. Follow-up sessions can be scheduled in person, over the phone, or Skype. Two emails a month are included in the initial consultation.
Some people come to see me and expect to get immediate results after the first appointment.
Not impossible but finding solutions and making lifestyle changes takes time. The most positive outcomes happen with 3 sessions. The initial appointment to decide on the plan, the follow-up to create the plan, and the second follow up to evaluate the results.
Based on the best outcomes to help you reach your goals and determine your best results and to learn how to take charge of your health I have created a VIP “Regain Your Health” Package which will provide you:
3 month program
Initial Session = 60 – 90 minutes
Monthly 60-Minute Follow Up Sessions (two total)
Text Access between sessions
30 day supply of two “core” supplements
Personalized Supplement Plan
Individualized Food Protocol (with guidance and instruction)
Food Journal Review with Comments
Lifestyle Assessment and Recommendations
Review and interpretation of Specialty Functional Tests (tests paid for separately using your insurance copay to pay the lab directly).
Concierge services are offered for out of state and out of country patients/clients that wish to come to Dallas for appointments. Concierge services usually require multiple appointments during the first visit. The first appointment to discuss testing instructions with the schedule, the second session after testing is completed (before returning home) to discuss food and supplements. Most patients prefer to return to Dallas when their test results are in to discuss the tests and customized plan of action. Follow-up visits can be conducted in person or by phone or Skype. Costs include preparation time for the visit including recommendations for hotel stays, customized lab schedules, supplements (if needed), and appointment time. Initial consultations may be conducted via phone before the first in person appointment.
