My Functional Nutrition Approach to Help YOU Achieve Your Health Goals
Autoimmune diseases, like psoriasis and Hashimoto's, are triggered by our environment, nutrient imbalances, and poor gut health. Getting down to the root cause is the key to reversing autoimmune disease. My approach starts with harnessing the power of nutrigenomics to discover the root cause and begin your healing journey.
Autoimmune diseases often run in families, and they are genes that make you more susceptible to Hashimoto’s or psoriasis.
And there is nothing you can do about it. Right? Well, maybe there is something you can do about.
Advanced DNA analysis creates your personalized nutrition roadmap that targets your inefficiencies like the inability to manage inflammation very well, reversing autoimmune.
Poor digestion and an unhealthy gut almost always go hand in hand with autoimmune flare-ups. An imbalance in our immune system is the primary cause of flare-ups and is often caused by poor gut health.
Reversing autoimmune starts in the gut. Your genes can impact your gut health. Knowing those genes can create your personalized gut healing program, helping to reverse autoimmune.
Whereas food sensitivities and intolerances can make your autoimmune disease harder to manage, histamine intolerance has the most significant impact on your immune system.
The underlying cause of histamine intolerance is poor gut health, but there are gene variants that can impact your ability to manage histamine levels. Targeting these genes and healing the gut is the key to reversing autoimmune diseases
Are You Ready to Ditch the Fad Diets?
Supplements that don't work?
With genomic testing and my advanced training, I remove the guesswork of what will work for you to reverse autoimmune, replacing it with a detailed plan curated uniquely for you and YOUR DNA.
Think of it this way. Would you build a house without a blueprint. A little risky, right?
Even with advanced testing and equipment that we have today, healthcare providers and doctors give few answers on how to manage autoimmune better, let alone reverse autoimmune—tons of tests. Lots of drugs, supplements, and “let’s try this” experimentation.
With your advanced DNA analysis and my Empowerment Nutrigenomic Program, you can finally get your nutrition blueprint that will work for you.
Begin Your Personalized Health Plan – Empowerment Nutrigenomic Program
My program is not a supplement protocol, a list of eat this, not that. Nor is it a 10-week course that promises that you will “learn everything you could need to reverse autoimmune disease.”
Your program starts with a clinically-relevant genomic test identifying and deciphering your body’s unique DNA patterns. Then I use that information to prioritize and personalize your health plan to reverse autoimmune.
Empowerment Nutrigenomic Program
Advanced DNA analysis or genomic testing starts with you receiving your at-home test kit. A simple saliva sample is all that is needed. Results take about 3-4 weeks.
While we wait, your personalized health plan starts with learning how our genes are impacted by our environment, nutrition, lifestyle, and chronic stress. Included are four learning modules that cover:
- Tame the Toxins
- What are Antioxidants?
- Are You Getting Enough B-Vitamins?
- Healthy Fats & How they Speak to Your Genes
There is no doubt that genomic testing has a learning curve, but by completing these modules, you will have actionable steps to get you started on your personalized health plan. Modules include how to resolve histamine intolerance, evaluations, guides, and recipe sets.
Your personalized health plan also includes biomarkers and recommended testing that you may want to complete. Most clients with autoimmune conditions go to my gut health programs, including the GEMM program (Gut Ecology & Metabolic Modulation).
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. Launching in July, 2022, my Nutrigenomics Metabolic Program. Program will include nutrigenomic, metabolic labs, and hormone testing.
Do you offer group consulting?
Currently I do not offer group consulting however, I am using more programs and modules that are self-guided in my consulting package.
Do you offer genetic testing and evaluations?
Yes, I do. Currently I offer testing through the following labs; 3X4 Genetics and Toolbox. Your health goals and conditions determines which lab I would be using as different labs test for different genomic variants.
Do you offer hormone testing?
Yes, I do. Using one of the most accurate testing for hormonal levels, DUTCH testing provides not just a testing your hormones but your adrenal health too.
Virtual Nutrition Consulting
Are you ready to achieve optimal health and want the convenience of staying home for your consults? All of my consults are virtual, so you can stay at home and get on your healing journey today. Using Practice Better, I offer an easy-to-use phone app for communication, food journaling, and more!
Not sure how the lab testing works with virtual consulting? In some cases, I may recommend integrative lab testing where most are at-home test kit. With other lab testing that includes a blood draw, you will be directed to closest facility.
