Our Approach to Services and Fees
(Nutrition consultations and counseling sessions can take place in person,
on the phone, or via Skype.)
If we agree that a personalized nutrition and lifestyle plan can help you reach your health and wellness goals, then you will receive a packet of various forms to complete prior to the Initial Consultation. These forms will include a personal family and medical history, a health appraisal questionnaire, a metabolic screening questionnaire, and other specific questionnaires that target your particular health issues. We will also send you a 3-day food and liquid record to complete so we can have a detailed analysis of the nutrient content of your current diet. You will also be asked for current (and past) lab test results. The next step is the initial consultation.
Nutrition Consultation Package: A Two-Part Approach Cost: $250.00
Part One: The Initial Consultation
During this 60 to 90 minute meeting, we will interview you about your health history, your past and present eating habits, your current health issues, and your health goals. We will discuss your diet and lifestyle habits from your childhood, teenage, and young adult years, up to the present time. We will talk about your sleep pattern, your food cravings, your digestion, your emotional state and moods, any chronic pains, past surgeries, past or present illnesses or traumas, and any other concerns you may have.
Then, over the next week, we will analyze the information from our first meeting along with all of the data from the questionnaires, lab test results, and diet intake records you completed. At that point, we will be ready for Part Two.
Part Two: The Assessment and Plan
During this 45 to 60 minute meeting, we will present the results of the analysis along with a Personalized Nutrition and Lifestyle Plan to help you achieve your health goals. We will review the quantitative Nutrient Analysis Report that includes a comprehensive table and chart of nutrients. You will be able to clearly see the nutrient levels of macronutrients (proteins, carbohydrates, and fats) and micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) as well as specific amino acids, fatty acids, and antioxidants. You will learn about your nutritional strengths and your areas of nutritional weakness. The information from the Nutrient Analysis Report will be combined with clinical evidence from your questionnaires, the in-depth interview process, and laboratory test results. You will be presented with a Personalized Health Plan that highlights your unique biochemical individuality. This Plan will contain specific dietary information and meal suggestions tailored to your individualized needs. You will also receive a list of high-quality nutritional supplements that we recommend for providing targeted therapeutic support to your new diet and lifestyle program.
Relatively brief follow-up calls and emails are included in the Nutrition Consultant Package.
