Nutrition & Lifestyle Counseling

~ 8 week Nutrition & Lifestyle Package ~

with our Naturopathic Doctors

Let us partner with you week by week to help develop an individual nutritional and healthy lifestyle plan to help you feel the way you were meant to feel… Amazing!

We will help you find your way back to optimal health, giving you enough energy and strength to be the best person you can be daily.   We will also help you to obtain your optimal body weight, while giving you the tools you need to maintain this with realistic lifestyle changes.  We work with you individually to develop a plan that matches your current life situation.

We know that achieving optimal weight and improving energy are not as simple as calories in and calories out.

We have to consider all aspects of health including asking about:

  • Food Intolerance:  is gluten free or dairy free right for your body? We can guide you through elimination diets and/or test your blood to see what foods you should and should not be eating.
  • Endocrine Function:  is your thyroid and adrenal gland making you tired? We can test your levels through a saliva test.
  • Individual Body Types:  what foods are good for your body type from a Chinese medicine and Ayurvedic point of view?
  • Nutritional Status:  are you getting enough nutrients and are you absorbing them properly? We can test your vitamin and mineral status, including Vitamin D status.
  • Life’s Stressors:  how busy is your family/career/school life?

We believe that we all need support to make change.  We have learned that being accountable during change is helpful to our patients.  The relationships that we foster through this type of work with people has proven to be effective and empowering.  We believe this is how true change is initiated.
