Functional Testing

I believe in finding the underlying root cause of health issues, and empowering you with the knowledge and tools you need to heal and feel your best. My integrated, functional medicine approach uses science-based labs to understand your body’s unique makeup, and design a custom supplement protocol.

I have trained through the Kalish Institute in the USA – the world leader in functional medicine testing – studying how to interpret complex lab data to solve common complaints like fatigue, weight gain, depression, digestive problems and hormone imbalances.

We start with a one hour consultation with me to determine if we are a good fit for what you are looking for and to go through your history and determine what lab testing will be best for you. 

 
Once your lab results come back I will review them with you in detail. Based on your lab review session, I will develop a comprehensive, personalized nutrition and lifestyle program for you to begin. Follow up consultations, health coaching and nutritional coaching sessions and retesting labs all happen as needed for each individual.

The functional medicine testing we do are mainly home tests and include testing of your digestive health and microbiome, hormone testing, organic acids and genetic tests. We can also look deeper at all the major nutrients such as amino acids, Omega 3 and Omega 6 essential fatty acid levels, Vitamin D, Vitamin C, the B Vitamins and more. Much of the work we do centers around understanding how genetics and your diet and life history have interacted so we can optimize your health and resolve chronic, long standing health problems.

I provide weekly one-on-one Health Engineering sessions within three month programs to review response and make all adjustments needed to continue moving towards healing.

My three fundamentals for transforming your health

1. There are many root causes to your symptoms

Alzheimer’s researcher Dr. Dale Bredesen coined the term “36 holes in the roof” to describe chronic illness. There are many factors influencing your health conditions, and we need to address them all. There is no single pill or protocol that will help you get well. We need to find all the holes in your roof, and plug as many of them as we’re able.

2. Bio-individuality

You are uniquely you. Your physiology, and your symptoms are the way they are today because of a lifetime of unique factors which are singular to you. You do not fit into a formula. You are not a statistic. You are an individual with a particular history, body, and lifestyle. You also have goals and dreams that are unique to you. We work with all of these factors to create a custom-made plan for you.

3. We will start with
your gut health!

The health of your gut determines your overall health, and 70% of your autoimmune cells reside in the gut. Interestingly, the biggest factors that influence the health of your gut are diet and lifestyle. To improve your immunity and overall health, we will focus on ways to improve your gut health.

YOUR Initial Consultation

After you book your Initial Consultation, I will send you my “Health in Brief” Questionnaire to fill in and return prior to your session. Your answers to the questionnaire will help me know a little more about you and your health before our session.

The Initial Consultation with Helen includes:

Discuss

We will discuss how your health is today and how this impacts your quality of life, your health journey to date, and key triggers that you believe have impacted your health.

Explore

We will talk about your health goals and your “why” – what drives you to want to transform your health, and what it would mean for you and your life.

Advise

I will advise on a healing path forward including the science behind these ideas. This may include adding nutrients, crowding out certain foods and lifestyle changes to support healing.

Plan

I will introduce you to my programs, (starting with the Discovery Program), and the tools and frameworks I have developed to ensure the best outcome for you. 

Recommend

I will recommend a path forward appropriate to you. I will also recommend some initial steps, to get you started along your health transformation journey.
