What is Functional Nutrition?


Health Coaching

Functional nutrition is a process of searching for the root causes of your health issue using a system. This is health coaching on a very personalized level because it’s based on your bio-individuality.
Your unique biology and life circumstances, your health history, will all be explored when looking for the root cause of your illness.
If you have an autoimmune disease, for example, I’ll be collecting information from you that will help me become a detective. We’ll be focused on your unique set of circumstances which brought you to your current health challenges.
We’ll review through tracking how your body is processing food and where your digestive system may be challenged.
Using tracking tools and functional systems we’ll begin to see a bigger picture which will help with where I can make recommendations toward your healing.
No two people are the same which is why your health history, childhood experiences, environment, medications, are all unique.

Functional Nutrition Tools

To look for the root cause, It’s important to learn your complete health history, which involves more than what you’re eating. It includes past environments, family history, stress level, relationships, antibiotic use and so on. Our sessions build on this information after I lay it out on a functional timeline.

In-Depth Intake Form

$150 investment
Here’s how it works:

During our scheduled 90-minute session, we’ll review your answers and choose a health coaching package based on your goals, budget, and time frame. I look forward to helping you on your wellness journey.

Please contact me if you have any questions about the In-Depth Client Intake Form and how it works.

Functional Nutrition Matrix

After our 90-minute review session which is either through zoom or on the phone, I’ll prepare your information on the Functional Nutrition Matrix.

This is Part Two of the paid review session.

Once I’ve gathered all the information to begin our sessions, you’ll receive:

  • A PDF of your timeline with your information organized and editable for updates as we move forward.
  • A Functional Nutrition Matrix that captures your symptoms and concerns throughout the systems in your body based on your Client Intake Form. Our health coaching sessions will be based on your information plotted on the matrix which will help me to know where to begin.
  • We’ll also take note of any lab work you may have had done in the last 6 months.
  • We’ll discuss your goals and steps to begin moving toward them.
  • You can share this timeline with your doctors too!
