Frequently Asked Questions
How does the nutrition services work? What should I expect?
Upon booking the first appointment, you will be sent a folder of intake forms. These will need to be filled out before the first meeting. They will ask about your lifestyle, digestion, bowel movements and a series of other symptoms. The first appointment will involve going thru these forms with your Nutritionist in a full consultation. The more information you reveal, the more accurate they can make recommendations. On the next meeting, you will be presented with a full report of findings. There will be an educational component to help you understand how your body is working, dietary recommendations to help you choose the right foods for your body. Supplement recommendations to aide in healing. And lifestyle recommendations to guide towards a more balanced life for optimal health. Appointments after this will be on a bi-weekly basis to layer on new lifestyle changes, address any issues along the way and create a sense of accountability to help you stay on track.
Will I need to take supplements with my nutrition plan?
Supplements may be required in the initial phases for the purpose of healing. Our take on supplementation is that it will be recommended modestly and temporarily. The goal is to help you get your body back to balance as soon as possible and not have to rely on multiple bottles of supplements to do so.
What if I can’t cook?
