Consultation

PRIOR TO CONSULTATION:

Clients will fill out a record form that reflects their medical history and current health concerns.

In order to provide clients with utmost effective nutrition services, it is very helpful if clients bring their most recent full blood work that includes: complete blood count, basic metabolic panel, blood enzyme test, lipoprotein panel, liver panel, Hemoglobin A1C, fibrinogen, homocysteine, DHEA, estradiol, and TSH. Some labs can measure Omega-3 Fatty Acids Index, which relates to the risk for cardiovascular diseases and may be useful.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING THE CONSULTATION:

The initial consultation includes dietary assessment of your eating habits, nutritional needs, actual and potential nutrient deficiencies and risk factors associated with them. We will discuss your current health concerns and establish strategies towards sustainable nutrition and lifestyle changes. We will indicate your short and long-term nutrition goals while taking into consideration your food preferences, cooking abilities, accessibility, budget and time constraints. You will receive a suggested “meal plan” to meet your dietary needs and address health concerns.

WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER THE CONSULTATION:

Within next three days after the initial consultation, you will receive a summary of what we discussed. The summary will include recommendations and strategies that will help you to navigate towards the established goals.  I will follow up with the email or telephone within a week to answer any other questions or concerns. In person follow up appointment is recommended within two weeks after the initial visit.
