Your Visit

New Patient Consult – Francesca was trained in Integrative Nutrition and takes a whole person approach to nutrition and health. She believes personal wellness varies day-to-day and depends on so much more than what you eat. Work, stress, environmental exposures, and sleep are only a few of the myriad of factors that affect our very complex sense of wellness. And because everybody likes different kinds of foods and lives different kinds of lifestyles, Francesca creates customized plans that fit into your life. The initial consult will set a plan of action for your healing plan.  Your plan will include coaching, supplement recommendations, food recommendations, and education.  Francesca uses lab tests, food diaries, and your health history to design a personalized nutrition plan appropriate for you needs and health concerns. Consultations are offered in person or via Skype.

 

 

Follow-up visits – The number of follow-ups depends on your individual needs.  Those coming in for weight loss, prenatal care, fertility, or a chronic illness should expect to come in every 2-4 weeks for the first 6 months.  Others who want a general wellness plan can expect 2-3 visits. As the focus moves towards maintaining wellness, clients can come in seasonally to learn how to care for your body with food during different times of the year.
