Online counseling offers the perfect solution for busy schedules to receive information quickly and accurately. This provides all the same benefits of in-person counseling with the convenience to fit your schedule either through computer (Skype or email) or phone.
A comprehensive initial appointment is vital to understanding your food allergy and to safely balance your life. A review of your food intake is analyzed for nutrients based on a 7 day food record from you. The results will be compared to the currently recommended intake to determine if you need more nutritionally dense foods or supplements.
Once the process is complete, you will know how to:
• Read food labels for ingredients to avoid the allergens.
• Replace foods with substitutions and alternatives to maintain optimal health.
• Modify your own recipes.
• Optimize wellness and nutrition with an individual meal plan we will create together to meet your specific needs.
After your initial appointment, a follow-up assessment may be recommended in order to monitor your progress. Discuss and review food records, adjust goals and address any concerns you may have.
