30 minutes. In person or via phone. This session includes a detailed explanation of our services and is the starting point for beginning assessments.
Based on a detailed health history that includes your concerns, current symptoms, and goals for your health, we will determine which assessments to take. The assessments are based upon your unique needs and may include an examination of the tongue, nails, and feet. They may also include a blood-type test and bioenergetic scan.
Our Approach to Your Health
Full body functional nutrition teaches you to leverage the powers of nutrition so you can use “food as medicine” to feel better.
At FxHW, we’ve taken the teachings of Functional Medicine and customized them for nutrition and lifestyle education. Our unique approach allows us to reveal the root source of your dysfunction and work with you to find a customized nutrition and lifestyle solution for you.
We work from two foundational truths:
1. You are unique.
Your physiology, and your symptoms, are the way they are today because of myriad factors which are singular to you. You do not fit into a formula. You are not a statistic. You are an individual with a particular history, body and lifestyle. You also have goals and dreams that are unique to you. We work with all of these factors to create a custom-made plan for you.
At FxHW, because we know that you are unique, we use the tools and frameworks developed by functional nutritionist Andrea Nakayama to meet you where you are in order to help you heal.
2. There are likely many root causes to your symptoms. Change does not happen overnight.
Alzheimer’s researcher Dr. Dale Bredesen coined the term “36 holes in the roof” to describe chronic illness. There are many factors to your suffering, and you need to address them all. There is no single pill or protocol that will help you get well. We work with you to help you find the holes in your particular roof, and plug as many of them as we’re able. This is our commitment to you.
What makes our therapeutic plans so successful?
We have created a unique approach that looks at all aspects of your history and your health, and our process gives us a deep, intimate understanding of what makes you, you.
There are four steps in our unique process:
1. We help you remove the top inflammatory culprits in your diet and lifestyle.
We call this “clearing the muddy waters.” This step aims to reduce systemic inflammation (the cause of so many symptoms) and helps you see what is going on in your body that is unique to you. We consider this a “non-negotiable.” Without taking this step, it’s hard to go to the next level of care.
2. After we clear the muddy waters, we focus on the symptoms that still remain.
We take a careful history, listening to all aspects of your story, in order to identify triggers and root causes in your past and present life. Through this process we also aim to address any deficiencies that might be getting in the way of your healing. These may be nutrient or lifestyle deficiencies.
3. We work with you.
We take into consideration your current situation, life demands, preferences and unique history so that we can create a custom plan that feels right to you and evolves with your progress and your needs. We check in along the way and work with you to adjust as necessary.
4. We’re with you every step of the way!
That means partnering with you and any other providers on your healthcare team that understand the need for a collaborative approach. We ultimately believe that today’s health challenges are best served by practitioners and clients working together. You shouldn’t have to go through this alone!
