Understanding your body’s unique needs and challenges is the first step in healing. As a Clinical Nutritionist, I may recommend one or more functional tests to help identify why you’re experiencing symptoms. These tests are different than the diagnostic testing run by your doctor and are used to shed light on areas that may be blocked or require support to optimize function.
Testing may include:
GI MAP Stool testing
Hydrogen/Methane testing for SIBO (bacterial overgrowth)
Food intolerance testing
DUTCH hormone testing
Real Time Labs Mold testing
Deeper blood testing
Methylation and detoxification genetics
Salivary Cortisol testing
Kits may be purchased online here. “Use my code BBN5 at checkout to get yours at a discounted price.”
Please read all instructions, fill out the requisition form completely and remember to put your name and information on collection vial.
Avoid aspirin for 48 hours before testing. Avoid oral and injectable steroids for 3 weeks prior to testing. Wait 1 week to collect a stool sample after a colonoscopy. If you have any issues please contact the vendor TrueHealth Labs.
Clients of BBN, please upload test results to your chart at practicebetter.io or bring them to your next visit for discussion.
Non-clients may take the test and book a half hour session to discuss the findings however, diet and supplement recommendations will not be made. Personalized protocols can only be created for Body Bliss Nutrition clients who have completed a New Client Visit.
Through a whole-body approach, I will help you improve the function of the many systems within and undercover the roadblocks holding you back from achieving your goals. Whether you are looking to shed a few stubborn pounds, improve your disease state or get to the bottom of your chronic bloating, skin condition, pain or fatigue, I will outline a program that is tailored for your specific needs and address the underlying issues creating the symptoms you feel.
Single sessions, 3 or 6 packs are available
Meditation is a powerful tool that has been scientifically studied and shown to improve brain function and promote the parasympathetic nervous system-our “rest and digest” system necessary to run the basic functions of the body. In the stressed state or “fight and flight” mode, the body actually diverts its resources away from critical systems including digestion, reproduction, sleep, blood flow, immunity and rational thought. These systems are dampened, the body tenses and energy is diverted to limbs to supercharge our ability to run or fight the enemy. In our modern world, the body’s perceived assaults are typically made up of many invisible stressors like work, family obligations, health challenges, politics, climate concerns, terrorism and money concerns. This is very different than past challenges that humans faced like running from a tiger! Today’s tigers are ever present, chronic and unrelenting and so to is the stress the body endures.
Meditation is an important piece to help move the body out of a chronically stressed state and restore it’s ability to fully fuel the function of these critical systems. Most of my clients come in with a wide range of symptoms that often include digestive issues, low immunity, sleep impairment, depression and anxiety. Restoring the parasympathetic nervous system is a step to rewiring the very function of the body and these critical systems.
Please take advantage of these short, free meditations to help you get started. Individual meditation and Reiki sessions are available and and can be incorporated into sessions as time allows.
