Functional Nutrition Consultation

Functional Nutrition Consultation for Creative Professionals and Entrepreneurs

If you are an artist, artisan, musician, dancer, designer, chef, entrepreneur, or any other type of creative professional whose vitality is essential to the expression of your creativity, full self, and mission on this planet… If your health and vitality is challenged…  Then you will find a place in our functional nutrition program.

You are a creative being. Your presence inspires. The utilization of your gifts transports others into the realm of their own higher creativity. What you do makes a difference. (Don’t I know it? You have transported me likely thousands of times.) How you feel – your energy level and presence – enables you to be fully yourself. When you feel great, your expression soars! When you’re fatigued or uncomfortable, it’s a struggle. As a culture, we all suffer the consequences. We need you!!

I’m pleased to identify as a creative spirit myself. Among my earliest memories is the day I was awarded an honorable mention in an art contest I was too young to enter. I’ve earned an undergraduate music degree, worked as an administrator in the production department of a major opera company, and currently serve at the board level for an arts organization in my community.

As a functional nutrition practitioner, I am one of you. I understand you. I am here to help. It would be my greatest delight to help you find your way back to center.

We live in challenging times

Here’s how things can start to slip. You work HARD to get your foot in the door. Put in long hours. Eat food of questionable quality because it’s what you can get. Sleep poorly (and not enough). As a young artist, you may work another job on the side. You take one for the team. Grab a coffee and start over. Self-care comes in last place. But unknowingly, you’re creating a debt. A nutrient and energy debt, exacerbated by a toxic burden.

Environmental toxins combined place a burden on your immune system. It’s easy to catch the latest bug or suffer the effects of smoldering chronic infection. (Ever had a virus or gut bug?) Your detoxification system becomes further compromised, and the cycle continues. You press on, but it’s harder than it used to be. Eventually, an extra day or two off doesn’t solve it. I’ve been there myself. You’ve got to take a different approach.

Ultimately, it’s self-care that will restore your energy and vitality. And that often means an individually-targeted health-building plan, based on objective results from functional lab testing.

We offer several options to support you in restoring energy and function with an individualized program, depending on your needs.

Health symptoms of stress

It’s easy to see how symptoms can arise when a person is under stress.

Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis

 

  • If neither of the above programs seems right for you, you may still be a good fit for beginning with the Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis as a simpler introductory step. It’s possible to add on later, once you get a feel for things.

How it works:

 

  1. Contact me to schedule a no-cost 20-minute conversation to see if working together seems like a good fit.
  2. If working together seems like a good fit, then the next step will be to fill out our health history form and schedule a health history review session ($125) before entering either the “Heart of Wellness” or “Wellness Inspiration” programs. The health history review session is optional for those starting with Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis only.
  3. After that, you’ll proceed into the program that best suits your individual situation and needs.
