Frequently Asked Questions & Answers

 

What is Functional Nutrition?

 

Functional Nutrition looks at the whole individual and focuses on the way food and lifestyle impact the body at a cellular level. It is designed to meet the needs of people who struggle with health problems and excess weight that cannot get their needs met by any other health care system or weight loss program.
I utilize a health building process that is personalized, preventative, and participatory using potent, proven, professional protocols. These protocols are based on diet, rest, exercise, stress reduction, and supplements.

 

Will you diagnose my problem or advise me on medications?

 

To be clear, I do NOT diagnose or treat disease. I do assist clients in creating a foundation of health through diet and lifestyle modifications.
For management of prescription drugs, follow the directions given by your health care provider. Private nutrition evaluations do include a review your medications and lab results to determine possible nutrition deficiencies and also to help you talk more intelligently about them with your doctor, but Karin will never advise modifications to medications or treatments. Only your physician can do that.

 

I’d like to work with you but I’m not sure I can afford the investment.

How do you put a price on a living a confident, vibrant, healthy life in a body that’s strong and healthy? To me, that’s priceless. Many clients choose to start with a home study or group programs because they are lower investments and are often a great way to get started on upgrading your health. Not to mention that research validates that individuals succeed best with group support. You’ve got options! Here’s the one thing you really need to know:  You can invest in your health now and enjoy a higher quality of life for years to come, or pay for your sickness and disease now as your body continues in a steady state of decline.

Do you take insurance?

 

No, my programs are not covered by insurance at this time but you may use your Health Saving Account dollars and that can save you some money!

What is Transformational Coaching?

 

With Transformational Coaching we uncover the hidden beliefs that have kept you stuck and develop new beliefs that make transformation inevitable. Most people actually feel like they can’t actually chose what happens to them in their job, love life, money, and health; they believe they have to just deal with what ever life hands them. I help you become more empowered to create the life of your dreams to manifest reality, and give you more access to choice.  I help you become more empowered.

 

What can I expect during the initial consultation?

 

It’s pretty simple: We’ll talk and get to know one another. You’ll tell me how it is right now and how you’d like it be. Then we’ll work together to help you . . .

1. Create a crystal clear vision for the ideal life you’ll be living in your new slim, healthy, and radiant body. The more clear you are on what you want to have in your life, the more likely you are to achieve it.

2. Uncover the hidden challenges that may be sabotaging your weight loss efforts and keeping you fat and robbed of energy. Get perspective on the root of why you continue to struggle.

3. Leave this session renewed, inspired, and ready to get healthy and finally lose weight — permanently.

What’s it like to work with Karin?

 

We start by establishing clear goals and assessing your current health. Next we put together a strategy and I help you implement it by supporting you and holding you accountable every step of the way. I teach you how to be your own best care-taker and how to think like a detective when it comes to your health and well being. I’ll also walk you through experiential exercises so that you’ll be able to make shifts with ease. I’ll help you through any points in which you feel stuck or overwhelmed; and hold you in the most loving, caring space you can imagine.

 

Who do you work with?

 

I work with women, men, teens, professionals, college students, parents, emotional eaters, substance abusers, LGBTQ+, and veterans —  but not just anyone. The reason I have an initial consultation for my private programs is so that you can get to know me better AND so I can get to know you better.

The truth is, I only work with people who are ready to make their health and life a priority, so I only invite people to work with me who are a good fit. Plus, I only work with few people privately at any given time. This keeps my attention on you and your results. 🙂

 

I’m not sure my spouse/significant other/family/friends will support me on this journey. How then, will I be successful?

 

We’ll work together to uncover your obstacles and I’ll help you find solutions to empower you to reach your goals. I know what it’s like first-hand to appease family and friends and stay committed to my own plan. This can often be one of the biggest hurdles people face. I have lots of ideas and strategies to keep everyone smiling and reduce any concerns you (or they!) might have.
