Nutritional Consultation

Though there is most certainly a psychological component to nutrition, it does begin with what we physically put into our bodies. In essence, we are what we eat.  Proper nutrition must consider the needs of each individual, as only a program designed specifically for each of us will truly promote health and wellness. A comprehensive individualized nutrition assessment will determine which approach offers the greatest opportunity for you to meet your specific health goals, both short-term and in the future. Whether you want to lose weight, improve sleep, manage and reduce stress, detoxify, relieve and eliminate skin issues, improve digestion or restore hormonal balance for increased fertility, it starts with healthy eating habits and exercise designed to meet your specific needs and abilities. Using detailed personal and family health history information, eating and sleeping habits, medications/supplements being taken, and current drinking and smoking habits, a tailor-made nutrition program can help not only help you improve your general state of well-being but also help you achieve the results you want. A nutritionist provides both a personalized diet plan as well as guidance intended to let you make informed choices about food and dietary supplements. There is a lot of confusing and contradictory information out there. Let a certified nutritionist help you sort out fact from fiction so you can decide what’s best for you.

Live Cell Analysis

A drop of blood can reveal a great deal about our health. A qualified nutritional consultant can identify deficiencies you might have in terms of vitamins and minerals as well as alert you to toxic levels of other components in your blood. Live blood cell analysis uses high resolution dark-field microscopy to analyze your blood and provide individualized data required to determine what type of diet your body requires and which dietary supplements may be most beneficial for you.

 

Initial consultation (approximately 1.5 – 2 hours) – $120.00

Subsequent visits – $80.00

 

Hair Analysis

Hair Mineral Analysis is a screening test that measures the levels of up to 60 essential minerals along with any toxic metals that may be present in the body, yielding a comprehensive metabolic profile of the test subject. This analysis, in conjunction with dietary and nutritional evaluations, forms the basis for a nutritional balancing program designed to establish and maintain optimal levels of wellness. By correcting tissue mineral levels and establishing proper ratios with proper diet, supplementary nutrients and lifestyle modifications, many physical and behavioral health conditions can be prevented or, in some cases, even reversed. The analysis detects levels of electrolytes (calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium and phosphorus) and trace minerals (copper, manganese, chromium, selenium, iron, molybdenum, lithium, cobalt and zinc), all elements your body needs to function properly. Toxic metal screening includes lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, nickel, and aluminum. These toxins inhibit the body’s ability to process and assimilate specific nutritional elements that are essential to good health and have a proven link to many types of diseases.

Food Intolerance Testing

It is possible for the small intestine to be damaged by stress, infections and/or medications, and when this situation occurs, partially digested foods can reach the blood stream. There are certain foods that can cause adverse reactions when they come in contact with the blood due to an intolerance or even an allergy to the ingredients or chemical composition of the food. The body’s immune system classifies these foreign particles in the blood as antigens and special IgG antibodies are formed to fight them. Unfortunately, these antibodies bind to specific food proteins to form immune complexes, which subsequently can accumulate in joints, organs and the vascular system. If this recurs frequently, it can lead to chronic health conditions.

Common symptoms include:

  • Chronic gastro-intestinal problems (irritable bowel syndrome, diarrhea, bloating)
  • Skin problems (chronic itching and Psoriasis)
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Hypertension
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Weight control problems
  • Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia
  • Attention Deficit and/or Hyperactivity Disorder
  • Arthritis

Approximately 5% of the population is affected by a food allergy, which produces an immediate onset of the symptoms often associated with an ‘allergic response’. However, it is estimated that more than 40% of people have a delayed type of reaction, one which occurs several hours or even days after the food has been consumed. This delayed reaction makes it difficult to determine which particular food(s) could be considered as the trigger of the health problem. A simple elimination diet can be used to identify the problematic food items, but this ‘trial and error’ approach is often imprecise and quite time consuming. Detection of food-specific IgG antibodies is recognized as a reliable method to quickly and accurately identify those foods that may be causing symptoms and to guide the design of a proper elimination diet based on the IgG antibody results. Originally invented for studying DNA and gene expression, the Health Food Sensitivity Test uses micro-array technology to detect the presence of IgG food-specific antibodies from over 200 commonly eaten foods.
