I work with clients for a minimum of 6 months to address health problems. The initial fee is $1000, broken into $700 for various testing & $300 for the assessment, supplement directions, nutrition outline, herbal and homeopathic direction, and meal plan. (Comparatively, this testing through a naturopath has cost me 900-1200, plus the consultation fee, with no nutritional guidance; the cost of a herbalist consult ranges from 100-250; the cost of a homeopathic intake consult is usually around 175-200; nutrition intakes usually cost 100-200. Clients get all this in one with me.) Clients then pay $150 per month (minimum 6 months) to work together to implement the outline.
We check in weekly and clients are given weekly audio/video learning tools and recipes – in their inbox – to help implement changes at home. Clients are also able to participate in cooking classes I offer at half cost and host no cost cooking classes in their home with 5 paying participants. At the end of the 6 months clients are equipped with accurate information to make wise health choices: they know how to read labels, how to avoid and substitute for unhealthy foods, how to source ethical meat, how to meal plan, prep, and cook, and how to use supplements and superfoods. They will understand key exercise concepts and myths and have clear plans for minimal effort and maximum results with exercise, with opportunities to connect with others in group exercise in the community. They will have addressed 1-3 health concerns and will have improved body weight and mass, and notice improved energy and mental/ emotional health. Clients are encouraged to retest to assess changes in biochemistry and direct supplementation going forward at the 6 month mark, but it is not mandatory. This is an optional service and the fee is $700. At this point clients have all the tools to master their dietary health on a day to day basis.
Clients with mental health and addiction issues are accepted only if they agree to work together for a minimum of 9 months. They pay $1000 up front ($700 for testing, $300 for intake) and $200 per month to work together. The fee is higher because these clients need more intensive support and education for their specific issues. At the 6 month mark these clients will see noticeable improvements and have the option to redo their testing to measure changes. The cost of a serious mental or emotional health issue or addiction is far greater than the investment for experienced guidance to effectively treat it through nutrition and functional medicine. I have worked in an addiction rehab centre and lived with mental health and addiction in my family and understand intimately the cost of these illnesses to the family and community. My fees are far cheaper than the cost over time of lost pay, rehab and detox programs that have abysmal success rates, and the cost of the needless suffering.
Addiction and mental/ emotional health issues are a complex mix of biochemical imbalances and emotional/ social injuries. Thus, I require clients to work with me in tandem with an approved therapist who specializes in the particular area of need. This is to ensure best outcomes. I also highly suggest a supportive family network to ensure success. Working with me, clients can expect almost immediate improvement of mood issues on the diet, and gradual but marked improvement in long standing mental health issues, including severe thought disorders. Other issues that will improve are weight/ body mass, mental clarity, energy, skin, inflammation issues, appetite, and sleep. Clients will have in me the benefits of orthomolecular/ functional medicine, nutrition counsel, and homeopathic and herbal treatment. Cooking classes are half price for all clients and free of charge if hosted at their home with 5 paying participants.
All prices are subject to applicable taxes.
My meals to go service (Kale Yeah!) offers an affordable way clients can follow my dietary advice with minimal effort ongoing to truly achieve and maintain their health goals. A portion of all profit from the meals to go is donated to meals for mentally ill clients.
Herbal and homeopathic remedies, supplements, and in person classes are extra, but evaluations and recommendations for these will be included in the fees. Some health care plans include nutrition expenses under preventative health care.
