When you contact us to book your CONSULTATION appointment, you’ll be sent a comprehensive intake form (known as a health history) that we’ll ask you to complete at least 48 hours in advance in order to properly prepare for your consultation and first session. All information is considered to be confidential and will never be shared.
During that 60 minute CONSULTATION, you’ll begin by having a detailed discussion on the background of functional diagnostic nutrition and the functional healthcare model, how and why it’s dramatically different than what you may be used to, and what to expect moving forward.
From there, we will walk you through a careful and thorough analysis of your past medical history, exploring not only the standard review of current symptoms, allergies, and family health, but also by performing an extensive audit of your body’s current systems and function, documenting everything from your energy levels, your appetite, mood, stress, body temperature, perspiration patterns, thirst, digestion and more. Because of our heavy emphasis on health as a whole, this discussion will also include any relevant lifestyle factors that may unknowingly be adding to your burden, such as your occupation, living situation, emotional stress factors and other pertinent circumstances or considerations.
Following the medical history and discussion, we’ll discuss which of the programs is a best fit for your current needs.
And lastly, your 60 minute visit will close with the evaluation and setting of your personal health goals. This way you have a better understanding of where you will be going during the program.
Following your consult, you will need to pick which program or testing which is best suited for your individual needs, we will then decide on session dates and finalize a plan. Once you are booked we can proceed.
During our first session (this is not done during the initial consultation unless you have booked a session + intake) together we will discuss which of your body’s systems need the most support, what your specific obstacles are, what’s at the root cause of your symptoms, and how we’re going to reach in and reshape it into something beneficial & beautiful for you and your body.
I like to think of these as breakthrough sessions.
During your first session we will go over your customized starter treatment plan which contains personalized strategies and next steps. We work session by session as the program develops as your needs change. This program is “paperless” which means all info is sent to you via email, let’s save some trees shall we? Feel free to print them if you desire to keep a binder of protocols.
Lastly, we’ll close our first session by going through an individualized treatment plan and custom treatment schedule designed specifically for you & your body going forward. This plan will only go one session at a time, as the program changes with you, your needs and life changes. It’s not like other one size fits all programs. This is what makes us different, and successful.
After all, no two bodies are alike, and no two treatment plans should be either.
