Wellness Through Food was created by me to develop and share whole-food recipes, research health topics and create personalized nutrition plans for individuals. I can help people use food and supplements to simply obtain optimal wellness or prevent and/or improve symptoms of chronic disease (obesity, heart disease, diabetes, autoimmune disease). My approach is science based as much as possible but focuses on the whole body rather than individual symptoms. Whether you are overweight, suffering from a chronic disease, or just want to feel better, I can create a plan, do the research and make suggestions to help you meet your goals.
Nutritional Assessment – Together we will explore concerns specific to you and discover the tools you need to fulfill your goals. This can include but is not limited to:
- Assessment of health through an intake form and consult
- One on one (or group) nutritional consulting sessions and check-ins
- Email support between sessions
- Pantry-clean-out and help with food shopping
- Meal plans based on your goals and/or symptoms
- Blood work analysis – I can look at and make suggestions on nutritional markers in the basic blood tests that you can get from your doctor
- Specialized Functional Medicine tests to assess hormones and nutritional biomarkers through blood, urine and stool.
- Nutrigenomic DNA analysis obtained from your 23 and me results
- Simple cooking demonstrations
- Supplement/herb recommendations if needed
What I don’t do: Tell you to stop taking prescription medicine or replace medical advice from your doctor. I don’t diagnose or prescribe. What I suggest should supplement and or help you improve how you interact with your doctor and provide questions you can ask to help you advocate for yourself. Education goes a long way!
Research Assistant – Do you as a company or individual need help researching health topics? Are you writing an article and want scientific literature to support your findings? Are you an individual that has a question about your health and would like to know what the latest scientific findings are on the topic but don’t have time to research it yourself? I have a great love for research and I understand how to read and interpret articles from scientific journals. As a graduate student I have full-text access to most literature. I can pull articles for you on specific topics or write a summary for you on that topic.
Recipe Development - I love to cook and create new, healthy and delicious recipes. Do you have a product that you want to use in a recipe? If your product aligns with my values, I am happy to create, photograph and promote a recipe for you.
Product reviews and give-aways – Have a product you want me to try? I love to write about and support new products if they align with my values. If it’s a giveaway, I would love to help host a raffle/contest & provide you with a forum to promote your product & reward my readers and clients.
