Frequently Asked Questions
Again, it depends on your specific needs and goals. Generally, though, you will receive detailed dietary and supplement recommendations; an analysis of all of your current medications (if applicable), their side effects and any potential medication-vitamin/herb interaction information; detailed educational information regarding the reasoning behind my recommendations; lifestyle recommendations and instructions (an example: meditation or stress management help and resources) and lots of additional health-based handouts and information sheets. Then, to support your efforts in reaching your health goals, I keep in close contact via follow-up consultations, coaching, email and text support and discounts on professional-grade supplements and other health products. So the program is a mix of education, coaching and counseling!
Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis is included in some programs but not all, depending on client need or desire. It is certainly my favorite tool to use as a program starting point, as it will tell us how efficiently and effectively the body is processing the nutrients it is taking in. This test also gives us a glimpse into how the body handles stress.
Absolutely not! I am not qualified to make changes to your medications – that is between you and your doctor. My role in this regard is that of “advocate”. I will make sure that my nutrient or herbal recommendations do not conflict with or interact with your medications and I will address any drug-induced nutrient depletions with appropriate recommendations. I cannot stress enough the importance of informing the doctor of all supplement additions or changes, as well as letting me know when the doctor adjusts or adds medications to your regimen.
I am excited to be able to offer my clients a large variety of brands of professional grade supplements at a 15% discount through the easy and convenient “HealthWave Virtual Dispensary”. For more information, click HERE.
