Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT DIAGNOSES / CONDITIONS / SYMPTOMS DO YOU WORK WITH?
I specialize in digestive and hormone health for women either newly diagnosed or struggling with:
IBS, IBD, Autoimmune conditions, women’s health conditions between the prenatal to postmenopausal years.
Crohn’s | Colitis | IBS | Endometriosis | Fibromyalgia | Chronic Fatigue | Chronic Pain | IC | PCOS | Autoimmune Conditions | Osteoarthritis |
Migraines| Parkinson’s Disease Rheumatoid Arthritis.
I also help women who are looking for a natural approach and don’t want to jump to medication as the first or only option. I help women who are focused on being purposely proactive, motivated and committed to themselves and are looking to manage the symptoms of digestive dysfunction such as: bloating, brain fog, chronic fatigue, diarrhea, difficulty losing weight (despite trying everything), reflux, joint pain, eczema, psoriasis, headaches, and more.
WILL YOU GIVE ME A MEAL PLAN?
If meal plans were the answer, you’d be on your way to success already, right? It’s like picking out your outfit today for 2 weeks from now. No guarantee you’re going to want to wear that outfit that day, right? Same goes for food. It’s a relationship; and rigid menu plans ignore that relationship. Telling someone what to eat doesn’t work when it comes to making lifestyle changes. Meal plan sheets takes away the joy of eating. In the monthly coaching, we’ll work together to create a personalized plan that is based off of what is happening in your body. In the 1:1 Program, there’s a laser-focused process to calm inflammation to help calm your gut and digestion to start seeing those symptoms fade away. You’ll receive a list of foods, based on your body, for foods that work with your body and then build from the list to give you the greatest variety while listening to your body.
WILL THIS HELP ME LOSE WEIGHT?
Struggles with weight are about more than calories. There are many other factors we can consider, thyroid, toxins, inflammation. I tend to see between 2-10# of weight loss due to losing retained fluid through the programs that are focused on anti-inflammatory eating. With our work together, you receive a personalized plan that is designed for you to improve your digestion, reduce inflammation. Taking this root cause type approach tends to be more productive in the long run for the ultimate goal of weight loss. In the process of clearing inflammation caused by food, while the body is rebalancing it’s biochemistry, it’s not uncommon to see a 5-10# weight loss from fluid in the first 10-14 days. But, if weight loss is your primary focus, this is not for you.
WHEN WILL I START SEEING RESULTS?
On average, within 3 weeks women are seeing up to an 80% reduction in symptoms! Many are seeing a significant reduction in symptoms in the first 10 days.
Keep in mind this program is about addressing root causes of your digestive dysfunction through food with an anti-inflammatory approach to eating, Your success will depend on you, your commitment to yourself, how long you’ve been struggling with your symptoms and how long it takes your body to rebalance it’s biochemistry. There may be other factors at play, such as microbiome health, micronutrient deficiencies, too.
DO YOU ACCEPT INSURANCE?
I focus on well care. I’ve found that insurance has created restrictions and limitations that stand in the way of providing true support and change. I am an out-of-network provider, which means fee is due at the time of service. After being significantly restricted in time and topic based on insurance coverage, I chose to be out-of-network so that I can give you high quality, one-to-one support and unlimited communication during your program. You won’t see me once every three months for 15 minutes, left to figure it out on your own. I’m here to guide and support you in this process and developed these programs based on what I wish I had when I was struggling with my symptoms. You can use credit card, HSA or FSA cards (please check with the card provider for dietitian coverage first).
WHAT IS THE INVESTMENT?
After the initial consultation, the cost varies based on your health and medical history so there is not one set price. I do not work by appointment, because I don’t believe that provides high-quality support that women are looking for and deserve.
We work together from a few weeks to a few months in duration. I believe the quick 15 minute visit every 3 months with no support is the old way to approach women’s health.
The women that I work with I believe that health is an asset. And, if you’re interested in working with me then you likely do, too. If your health and symptoms are the things standing in your way of freedom, fun, clarity, happiness, intimacy, confidence, travel, adventure, family, career advancement, what is the cost to you in not investing in your health and getting to a root cause of your symptoms?
When you can uncover clear answers on how to calm your gut, digestion and reduce your symptoms, working together will save you time and money in the long run. Therefore, with a personalized approach using Digestion By Design investments range between $365 to $3,500 and range from a few weeks to a few months when you enroll in one of my programs.
