FUNCTIONAL WELLNESS COACHING

with lab testing

My goal is to get to the ROOT CAUSE of your health concerns.

Through a detailed analysis of your current lifestyle, health concerns, and using comprehensive lab testing, I create a wellness program specific to YOUR body and goals.

My clients who do best with me are:

  • Highly motivated and committed in playing an active role in their health
  • Want to reach their optimal level of health, so they can feel their best, increase energy and productivity, and have confidence in their body
  • Use functional medicine for identifying underlying cause, rather than just suppressing symptoms with medication
  • Are willing to make the necessary dietary and lifestyle changes to support health and well-being

FUNCTIONAL WELLNESS COACHING 

This is the first step for all new RNS clients looking for the most detailed and comprehensive approach to their health and well-being. The Case Review process is designed to save money and time in the long-term by performing the appropriate functional lab testing before we devise a plan. A cornerstone of our approach is “test, don’t guess.” Identifying underlying patterns that will be key to a successful and long-lasting outcome.

This includes:

• An initial phone or video consult to determine which labs to order.
• A thorough review of your medical history and relevant previous lab work (10-page limit)
• Comprehensive lab testing (see below)
• A review of your current diet and nutritional supplements.
• A 60-minute consult (in person or virtually) to review your results and present your plan.
• A treatment plan including diet, supplement, and lifestyle therapies.
• Recommendations for further testing (if necessary).

The Case Review process includes TWO steps, which are described in more detail below.

STEP ONE: INITIAL CONSULT

During this 30-minute phone appointment, Rachel will interview you to determine which lab tests to order for your Case Review, based on your chief complaints, history, and goals.

This appointment has two purposes: to make sure that we have all of the information needed to gain a comprehensive understanding of your health status and to give you a head start on working towards your goals.

The exact lab testing ordered:

Celiac disease is a disorder characterized by intestinal malabsorption of nutrients due to sensitivity to the alcohol-soluble portion of gluten known as gliadin. Wheat, rye, barley, and to a lesser extent, oats contain this protein substance and can induce mucosal damage in the gut causing nonspecific villous atrophy of the small intestine mucosa. Most patients are asymptomatic. Celiac disease also has a genetic disposition. First relatives of someone diagnosed with the disease have a 1 in 22 chance of having signs of the disease in their lifetime.

This panel measures an individual’s IgG and IgA sensitivity to food antigens of 96 different foods. Food Sensitivity testing can be very useful to help prioritize an elimination or rotation diet. Usually removing foods that the body has produced antibodies to will alleviate symptoms, because the source of inflammation is removed.

*All of these labs are included in the Case Review; however, additional labs may need to be ordered based on specific health concerns or goals at an additional cost.

Once we’ve received your lab results and completed paperwork (will be emailed to you upon booking the initial appointment), you will move on to Step 2: The Case Review consultation. This typically occurs 4 weeks after the Initial Consult.

STEP TWO: CASE REVIEW

The Case Review consultation is a 60-minute virtual or in-person appointment.

Prior to the consultation, Rachel will review the results from the labs that were ordered along with you’re the paperwork going over your health history, goal, diet and supplement information, and lifestyle habits and relevant prior lab work. She will use all of this information to provide the following:

• A summary of the underlying patterns that are contributing to your symptoms.
• An outline of the suggested treatment plan, including dietary, supplement and lifestyle recommendations.
• Recommendations for further testing (this will typically be minimal, if necessary at all, because of the completeness of the Case Review process)
• During your consultation, Rachel will present you with their recommended treatment plan for monthly coaching and answer any questions you have.

Common Questions

Do I need to be local to set up a consult with you?

If you live in the DFW area, nutrition counseling can be done in the office. Many clients enjoy and prefer the relationship we establish through our face-to-face consults as well as the equipment available at the office. However, I have clients from all over, and the counseling is just as effective through a virtual consult using Zoom.

When and where can I come see you?

Nutrition counseling appointments are available Monday-Friday. My office is located on the second floor of the Valliance Bank Office Building at 5900 S. Lake Forest Dr., Suite 200, McKinney, TX 75070. If you live in the DFW area, nutrition counseling can be done in office.

What do I need to prepare for my first appointment?

Prior to the initial consult, you will receive detailed paperwork going over your health history, goal, diet and supplement information, and lifestyle habits and relevant prior lab work.

How often will I come see you?

Most of my clients work with me on a monthly basis until they get to “maintenance,” where they then just check-in as needed.

What payment methods do you accept?

Accepted payment forms are credit, debit, check, PayPal, or cash.

Why don't you take insurance?

Working with insurance is nearly a full-time job in itself, which takes time away from working with my patients. I would rather focus my time, attention, and energy on you. If you have insurance, I will gladly provide you with an invoice you can submit for reimbursement with your carrier. You’ll just need to check with your insurance company to find out if nutrition services are covered.

I wasn't sure if I wanted to work with nutritionist, I don't do well with limitations. But after working with Rachel for few months now, it has been great. Initially I heard her on a podcast and the way she was talking it just spoke to me. I felt she will be the right person to help me with my issues. She has been super helpful explaining what I need to do, how my body is functioning, what is the best course of action. She answers all my questions in details and i look forward to our appointments!

I have loved all my meetings with Rachel. Changing the focus to gut health with my diet has made me feel much better and it’s only been 4 weeks. Her approach seems intuitive yet not trendy or overwhelming. I would recommend to anyone looking to get guidance on nutrition or dive deeper into what’s causing problems. Wonderful experience so far!!!

I was so uneasy going to a nutritionist for the first time. Rachel made me feel comfortable and confident in my goals. I worried about just getting a cookie-cutter diet plan, which hasn't been the case. During my first appointment, we sat and discussed my goals and did some body assessments and then Rachel sat and wrote my initial diet plan. During the next appointment, my diet will be modified even more based on the results of my blood work. This has been well worth the investment so far and I'm very excited about this journey!

Rachel was very helpful for me. I had a lot of digestive issues which turned out mainly to be an intolerance to dairy and stress. However, none of the doctors I went to could figure out what the problem was! Rachel helped me with supplements, diets, and tests that have guided me to what I should eat / do to feel better. Really thankful there was a natural method out there rather than the extreme measures doctors suggested that produced no results!

My first visit was very professional and helpful. The information about food was information I already knew but would be helpful for those who are new to nutrition. The body composition and the menu plan - what foods, how much, and when to eat them - were most helpful for me.

Rachel is very knowledgeable and her enthusiasm for good nutrition health is contagious! Im an RN who has struggled with my weight and tried every diet out there. So I admit I was a bit skeptical about what I could possibly learn. I learned so much from Rachel! She worked with me and I feel I have a VERY doable program. I am re-thinking everything. They say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and achieving the same results. So I am way excited to find a new way of eating that will both satisfy me and get me the results I need. Thank you Rachel!

I have very unique health and dietary issues while also being a professional dancer and teacher. Nutritional help that understands my athleticism, chronic injuries, and the big picture has been difficult to find but Rachel seems to understand both of these areas. I’m looking forward to her helping me make my meals being more diverse and enjoyable while also fueling my body more effectively.

Rachel has gained the expertise to get problems fixed that most doctors are not even considering or bothering with. I am very excited to be working with her to get healthier. After so long struggling, I finally feel like I am on the right track. She has put perfecting touches on my diet while getting the test results I need so she can get my gut healthy. If I hadn't found her, I'd definitely still be lost.

I did a lot of research before deciding to see Rachel for a nutritional consultation. I think it is important to not only find someone who is knowledgable in their field but also someone who practices what they preach. She was extremely informative, kind and I felt like she lisyened to my concerns and requests. She and gave me a good pacakage of information to review in our initial meeting. She also helped me with a meal plan tailored to me, my likes and dislikes, etc. I look forward to our follow up, and most of all I look forward to the results to come from this new way of eating.

Rachel is SOOO smart and helpful. I turned 50 this year and have a goal of getting into shape. My husband & I started cycling, which started us on our quest for health/fitness...but, then I met with Rachel - she helped me combine our exercise w/good nutrition and what an impact it has had on my life (my hubby's too). Not only are some pounds dropping off, but I feel great, more energy, more over all health -- even less allergies, if that is possible! 🙂 Thank you Rachel!
