Functional Nutrition Assessment
Struggling with an autoimmune condition like psoriasis or other autoimmune skin conditions? Even hair loss and poor nail growth are related to autoimmune skin conditions.
When we think of our skin we don’t think of our hair and nails. Yet, hair and nails are actually modified types of skin. Often hair loss, skin conditions like dermatitis, are related to our nutritional status. And, our immune system.
My Functional Nutrition Assessment gets down to the root cause of your autoimmune skin conditions or hair. By looking at your past health history and profile, begins your healing journey.
From there I evaluate your blood values and recommended integrative testing like organic acid testing, putting together your plan of action. Your plan of action includes a recommended food plan that targets your health condition.
Included in my food plans are recipe sets, culinary guides, and recommended dietary supplements. Most health conditions take 3 or months to resolve and I offer an easy to pay a monthly membership.

The root cause of your psoriasis and eczema may be a nutrient deficiency or imbalance. Determining the deficiency is part of your functional nutrition assessment.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are consulting in office only? Do you do virtual consulting?
My practice is currently a virtual practice where I use video/phone consults only. So you can sit back on your comfy couch and begin your transformation.
Do you take insurance?
At this point I do not take insurance and that is for two reasons. Most insurance companies do not cover nutrition consulting. The second reason is this allows me to make the best recommendation for you rather the insurance dicating those decisions as often seen with conventional healthcare.
Do you offer weight loss programs?
I have extensive experience with weight loss clients and over that time have learned that stubborn weight loss is really a symptom of hormonal imbalances. Both of my weight loss programs work with balancing your hormones and improving metabolic health leading to permanent weight loss. Please see my Metabolic Health page for more details.
Do you offer group consulting?
Yes, I do. Group consulting offers a great support system and helps to reduce costs. Since most of my programs are highly individualized, I generally do a one on one to start with and have clients meets in groups after that.
