Every individual is unique! Optimal weight loss is a program that offers a unique nutrition program for each individual based on their individualized medical conditions, their “metabolism” governed by internal body function and hormone balance, and emotional eating patterns.
The program entitles you to a 60 minute consultation to help you to create a unique “food-based” nutrition program with individualized dietary guidelines based on your needs which help you achieve optimal weight naturally.
While the goal of most people entering this program is weight loss, I strive to guide people to achieve balance in body, mind and spirit in an attempt to achieve optimal health.
Blood Work to Assess Internal Body Function, “Metabolism”
Includes liver function, kidney function, inflammatory markers, cholesterol levels, basic thyroid function, iron levels, electrolytes, blood type
Food intolerance testing to address food contributing to weight gain and inflammation
Hormone testing to test for underlying hormone imbalances contributing to weight gain
