 Frequently Asked Questions

How many clients have you successfully treated?

Somewhere in the mid-100’s.  I define success by at minimum accomplishing the client’s goals.

Can you put that in perspective?

Sure.  I’ve had in the 10’s of people opt to drop out of care from personal choice due to not being ready to implement changes, sometimes due to investment requirements, and sometimes because we are just not a good fit on either end.

Did anyone discontinue due to adverse events?

No.

Has anyone not been successfully treated?

Yes.  7 people so far.  I keep count.  I define lack of success as those who followed my recommendations, persisted, and were unable to find improvement.  Mostly these were people with multiple chronic conditions and I happily referred out.

 

Most are successful.



How many consults do I need to see results?

It only takes 1 consultation to see results within the subsequent 1-3 weeks of implementing the recommended changes.

Most people do not require more than 3-5 consults in total to accomplish their goals.   This ranges from symptom minimization to remission from diagnoses ranging from IBS to Metabolic Syndrome as well as various autoimmune conditions.

If your current state includes multiple overt diagnoses and symptoms preventing you from living life for more than the past 3-5 years your healing process will likely take around 1 year.  Such cases are usually facilitated by working alongside a functional medicine physician who can provide appropriate IV and other advanced therapy.



What is Food as Medicine?

Food As Medicine is the practice of using foods and herbs in specific quantities for specific lenghts of time to facilitate the healing process.  Food As Medicine is best complimented by targeted herbal and nutraceutical therapies alongside lab testing to promote whole person healing.



What does the initial consultation cover?

I ask that everyone fill out my Intake Form and return this to alongside any labs from the past 6 months at least 48 hours prior the consultation.

At the start of every consultation I offer the opportunity for you to voice your questions, concerns, and goals for the consultation.  Once I understand where you want to go, we will spend the first 30-45 minutes going into a detailed discussion on your history and current symptoms as well as lifestyle if appropriate.

Once I have the information necessary, I will take 5-10 minutes to reflect and synthesize.  During this time you are invited to relax or take a bathroom break if needed.  While you may check your phone or answer emails I ask that you make a point to not get too distracted.  This time affords me the opportunity to make a thorough and honest appraisal of your path forward.

From here we will resume our conversation and I will outline your path forward as well as detail the recommendations.  These recommendations will include dietary changes and may include herbal or nutraceutical therapy, lifestyle modifications, and/or lab testing.

Throughout the consultation all questions are welcomed and answered.



What is your practice philosophy?

 

Our physical bodies are built from the food we eat, the water we drink, the air we breathe, all heavily influenced by our thoughts and emotions; creating a unique and interconnected system that is each one of us.  Over the past several decades, revolutions have been made in our understanding of cell biology and chemistry which is largely placed under the context of Functional Medicine, Biochemical Individuality, Epigenetics, Nutrigenomics, and more recently Quantum Biology.  This knowledge base is expanding exponentially and daily. Ultimately, what works for one person may work very differently in another.

My job is to help you identify the root cause(s) of your symptoms.  By tracing back your symptoms to their origin, we create a personalized pathway to healing.   Oftentimes what you need changes as your body heals and shifts.

In my practice less tends to be more.  Through using a combination of targeted foods and herbal therapies as and in conjunction with medicine, your body begins to make distinct shifts towards wellness.  By following how your body responds, your healing path is optimized as you go until your goals are achieved.

For those who feel it will serve, this process is complimented with personalized lifestyle recommendations.  Frequently our habits are created for a reason at some point during our life.  By understanding how the habits you wish to change have served you, genuine lasting and sustainable shifts can be created.  

Taken together, my job as a nutritionist is to utilize the most recent cutting edge science and work with you as a unique, evolving individual to help you find and maintain a state of wellness and balance.
