Frequently Asked Questions:

What happens after I book a Restoring Wellness Strategy Session?

I will review the short questionnaire responses to see if we are a good fit. If the services you’re looking for are not in alignment with my service or are outside of my scope of practice, I will let you know and offer any referrals I can. If I am able to assist, then we will complete our call at your selected time so I can gather additional information and answer your questions. From there we can discuss next steps if you are interested.

Do you take insurance?

No. I am not a medical provider.

Why don’t you publish prices on your website?

The nature of this work is very individualized, so every package looks different. The length of the program, the recommended testing, and the components included vary from person to person. I don’t charge for individual sessions or by the minute, but design packages that fit each individual client’s needs.

Can I only work with you if I’m local to you?

I work with clients from all over! Thank you technology! All of my sessions are conducted via phone call or video call, even if clients are local.

Is this just another diet? Will the advice be limited to what to eat?

Nutrition is one key aspect to optimal health and balancing the body – but it’s only one piece. No matter how great someone’s diet is, if they’re being drained by stress load, or living in a toxic environment, the body won’t re-balance. Throughout this process, we will focus on all three pillars – nutrition (everything in and on your body), lifestyle (stress, sleep, movement), and mindset/inner work (thoughts, attitude, emotional/mental stress).

Are you going to give me a meal plan?

No. Meal plans aren’t very effective. Most people never actually follow them and they don’t teach you WHY to eat those foods. They teach you to be reliant on me and the meal plan. Not sustainable!

I will, however, give you the tools and resources you need to create your own plan – enlightening, educating, and empowering you to own your health.

Will I have to give up all of my favorite foods?

Not likely, but that really depends on what your favorite foods are! If you are consistently consuming foods that are causing you inflammation, the only way to remedy that is to stop eating those foods. You may be able to add your favorite healthy foods back in when your body is back in balance, but if you add process and refined foods back in, you’ll end up in the same unhealthy space.

How long will it take?

Everyone’s journey is unique to them. Typically, I work in 3-6 month packages which allows for sufficient time to implement any changes, conduct any testing needed/wanted, monitor for any tweaks necessary, and see significant improvement. The process is fully customized to you – so the speed of the protocol depends on your health and your willingness/ability to implement the strategies. Some people like to layer in changes, others like to go all-in with all the changes at once.

Will I lose weight?

Weight loss is not my primary focus, but many clients who have weight to lose will drop that weight seemingly effortlessly by bringing the body back in balance. This is health and sustainable weight loss done the right way! I do not subscribe to tirelessly tracking, weighing, or counting foods/macros/calories or eliminating entire food groups.

Will I have to take supplements?

Most likely I will recommend therapeutic supplementation as a part of your protocol. Those recommendations will come directly from the data gathered from you and any functional testing done. Most of the recommended supplements will be taken for a short period of healing time, rather than forever. I work with pharmaceutical-grade supplements and rigorously tested products. I am not affiliated with any one manufacturer, so I recommend the best of multiple companies for your unique needs.

How is this approach different than working with my doctor?

It is entirely different and complimentary! I am not a medical professional and as such, I do not diagnose, treat, or prescribe medications. Functional nutrition is focused on optimizing your health through targeted nutrition, lifestyle recommendations, and therapeutic supplementation.
