Have you ever wondered if your ‘healthy’ diet is actually healthy for you? We believe there are 7.7 billion different ideal diets because there are 7.7 billion individuals! That’s right, the keto diet might work perfectly for one friend and another swears by vegetarianism but you might not feel great on either of them. Guessing and checking is an effective method at times but we are more interested in using research and lab testing to help us find your optimal health plan.
When choosing the best eating plan it is important that what you eat is in alignment with your hormones, genetics, gut microbiome, stress levels and your current blood sugar regulation patterns. Luckily for us we can gather all of this information from a thorough intake and selected testing!
In your appointment we will be giving your already healthy habits a boost and ensuring that they are actually healthy for you as an individual! Your supplements and products will also be discussed to ensure they are doing what you hoped them to do.
At the end of this appointment you can expect to leave with:
- Basic diet and lifestyle recommendations
- Personalized herbal and nutrient recommendations
- Where appropriate, in house testing for your adrenal health, gut health, and/or bioelectrical impedance analysis
- Lab test recommendations (where appropriate) may include testing for hormones, blood sugar balance, adrenal health and nutrient balance. We use both functional tests and standard blood tests to come to understand your health better.
After we receive the results of your testing your ND will explain all of the findings. No blanket normal statements here, we want to ensure you understand what it all means. From that point we will customize a meal system and supplements to your specific needs.
Eating healthy for you and the planet!
It is one thing to help you optimize your macronutrients and meal timing for ideal health but it is another to factor in the environment. Worldwide people are waking up to the fact that if we don’t prioritize planetary health then there will be consequences. That is why it is really important to us to educate you on how to have conscious and pocketbook friendly choices- it is possible!
Staying Healthy in Community!
Isolation and loneliness are currently rivaling obesity and smoking as a health risk! That is why we view nourishment not only as what you put in your body but who you surround yourself with. At AWH we are committed to health in community with our talks, group programs and events. Our community values taking action and making choices that fuel their future and allow them to naturally feel like the best versions of themselves. You will fit right in!
