What Can I Expect?
As a Wellness HQ client, I respect and address your bio-individuality and your personal health goals and concerns. I work on the premise that each of us is a unique individual and there is no “one size fits all” model of diet. Additionally, I believe lifestyle including sleep, physical activity, environmental and emotional stress, play, creative outlets, and relationships all have just as much as an impact on your health as the food you eat.
In addition to discussing and addressing your primary health concerns and goals, I develop realistic and strategic short and long term goals for you using assessment tools that include:
Food & Mood Journal Analysis
Nutritional Assessment Questionnaire/NAQ (a 300+ question in-depth survey that evaluates symptom burdens and identifies functional imbalances in organs and systems)
Emotional and spiritual assessment
Functional Evaluation & Lingual-Neuro Testing
Hand's On Approach: The Functional Evaluation
Functional Evaluations are one of the Nutritional Therapy Practitioner tools for assessing a client’s health. Using the innate connection between nerve endings at skin level and the body’s internal organs, NTP’s can determine where dysfunction is occurring. Reflex points connect to the neuro-vascular and neuro-lymphatic pathways which surround every organ system in the body. When an organ is in stress, these pathways accumulate fluid around them (called venous or lymphatic congestion) to support healing. This congestion results in tenderness of the reflex points (Learn more here).
The second part of the Functional Evaluation is Lingual-Neuro Testing (LNT), a biofeedback tool that is used to determine the usefulness of a nutritional supplement before it is dispensed to the client. LNT accesses the body’s innate ability to discriminate between what it needs, and what it does not need, in order to correct a specific problem, for example, a weak organ or a nutritional deficiency. This effective technique allows for a more personalized nutritional therapy plan (Learn more here).
The Functional Evaluation, Lingual-Neuro Testing, Food & Mood Journal review, Nutritional Assessment Questionnaire analysis and detailed health history and lifestyle assessment allow me to provide you with well-guided recommendations for diet, nutrition and lifestyle based on your bio-individual needs.
*Please not that the Functional Evaluation and LNT process are only available for local NYC clients.
