Functional Nutritional Counseling
Functional nutritional counseling is unlike traditional nutritional counseling
Unlike traditional, medically-based nutritional counseling, this type of dietary counseling utilizes advance metabolic testing to personalize a dietary lifestyle plan for recovery of chronic conditions and peak energy production of the body.
Functional medicine treatments focus on nutrition, lifestyle, stress management, herbals and neutraceuticals/supplements. We look to uncover factors that may be contributing to your health through a detailed look into your history and lifestyle. In addition to standard tests, we utilize evidence-based lab testing not done by conventional practitioners to open the doors for a wider array of personalized treatment and recommendations. These can include detailed stool analysis, food allergy and sensitivity, heavy metal toxicity, functional nutritional assessments, adrenal evaluation, inflammatory and autoimmune panels, advanced cholesterol subparticle profiles, sex hormone metabolism, expanded thyroid profiles, genetic markers and neurotransmitter levels.
The results of this analysis help the Dr. create a custom nutritional and supplementation program designed to meet the needs and goals of each individual patient.
