We Pair Nutrition and Medical Appointments for Best Results
Since nutrition is key, we ask that new functional medicine patients meet with our Functional and Integrative Dietitian, Leann Larson, in addition to your medical provider.
We practice Integrative and Functional Medicine and Nutrition because our goal is to uncover the root cause of your health issues, rather than just treating your symptoms. Research and experience have shown that nutrition and gut health are vital to healing and that most people greatly benefit from working with a dietitian, often getting better much quicker.
Leann will coordinate with your provider to get your medical history and create the most appropriate nutrition plan for you or your child to start alongside the medical treatment plan. Nutrition sessions can be held by phone, or via Zoom video conference for your convenience. If requested, we will make every effort to schedule your nutrition visit the same day as your provider visit.
Meeting with Leann will benefit you in several ways:
- The nutrition visits may result in shorter initial or follow-up provider visits, saving you time and money.
- Nutrition visits can often be scheduled sooner than provider visits, allowing you to get started with the healing process. You may even be able to discuss symptom improvement and go deeper into the medical treatment plan during provider visits.
- You get a more comprehensive conversation about food and nutrition, along with practical ways to start incorporating changes right away.
