Consults are the first step to see if Dr. Angela is able to help you! During a 30-minute consult, we will go over health history, present health status, medications, diagnoses, goals, and current lifestyle. After gathering all the info needed, Dr. Angela will determine if your case is one we can start on right away, if you need further testing for diagnostics, or if you need a referral. Once that determination is made, you get to decide where your journey is headed!
Are you on medication? Is your health in trouble? Have you been diagnosed with conditions such as diabetes, autoimmune disorders, digestive distress, or hormone imbalance?
Individual Nutritional counseling is at the heart of what Dr. Angela does. Individual counseling is exactly what it sounds like: health restoration utilizing nutrition in a way that is unique to you and your case. Every body is unique, every lifestyle is unique, and no two patients’ journey are ever the same; therefore, Dr. Angela has created a foundation of principles that will ensure each and every patient is eating foods to optimize his/her health while also addressing their specific condition. Having an active diagnosis with or without associated medications means general lifestyle changes may not be enough. This is where certain food recommendations can help correct disease and its associated symptoms. However, once corrected and well-maintained, more general lifestyle recommendations can be adopted. This will ensure a relationship with food that fuels your cells, feeds your soul, and provides a lifestyle that contributes to an amazing quality of life. This type of work can be more of a marathon than a sprint. Dr. Angela will be working alongside you from the acute phases of correction to the transitions back into a general healthy lifestyle. We will work together to navigate the twists and turns that are distinct to you.
Once all of your health information is gathered, diagnostics complete, and a choice to start the journey is made, you will receive nutritional guidelines for your condition and access to cookbooks and recipes Dr. Angela has created. During your journey, you will you become a student, as well. Every meeting will have an important topic that is pertinent to your health. There will also be a piece of homework following every meeting that is intended to empower and teach you important information about your body, how it works, and what may have gone awry. By the time you are done, you will have new habits, abundant resources, and a deep understanding of what health means to you and your body.
