What is Functional Nutrition?
Functional Nutrition is based in the science of Functional Medicine – address the whole person, their story, and experiences and not just an isolated set of symptoms. It is a biochemical, systems-based approach to understanding the unique circumstances of each client.
In order to fully understand each client, numerous nutritional assessments are available as well as the utilization of functional lab testing to determine your optimal nutritional needs. Nutritional assessment testing is not meant to diagnose or treat any disease; the information provided is intended to assist you in making healthy eating and supplement choices.
Functional Nutrition goes far beyond developing eating plans and menus. It helps you evaluate your individual metabolism, nutrient levels and reserves, hormone levels, and how well your digestion is working so you can take actions to maximize your specific nutrition needs.
Nikki Believes in Testing, Not Guessing
Nutritional testing reveals your body’s unique needs by combining information from measurements of digestion, nutrients, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, as well as cellular and organ function.
Health is a continuum. At one end is peak vitality; at the other is disease. Many of us live much of our lives somewhere in between: not quite ill, but not truly well either. Optimal nutrition can help us move toward peak health, with fewer illnesses and more vitality, even as we age. Functional lab testing can help you do that.
Biochemical Individuality is Key
I believe we are all unique and there is no one way to work with people. We are all unique in our genetic makeup, story, nutrient needs, hormones, stressors and dealing with stress. Not all “healthy” foods are healthy for all people and understanding your personal nutritional needs is very important to lasting wellness.
