What is functional nutrition?

What you eat is important, but if you cannot absorb the food properly, your body doesn’t get the building blocks it needs. Functional nutrition not only looks at what is on your plate, but also on the body’s ability to break down, absorb and use the food efficiently. Is your digestion working as it should? Is your blood sugar regulation working properly? Are your organs receiving all the nutrients they need?

Who is this for?

“I want to learn more about digestion, nutrition and why an anti-inflammatory diet is important. I am also ready to commit to making changes along the way to improve on my health.”

This is for anybody who is curious and want to improve from where they are right now. This is not about counting calories. It’s progress over perfection.

How do you want to start?

You can choose between two programs. Program A is a general 4 week anti-inflammatory diet. We meet once and go through the plan for the 4 weeks. The rest is up to you.

Program B is an individualized step by step approach to make changes to improve on your health. The content and follow-ups will be tailored to fit your needs.

If the leaves turn brown,

Do you paint them green?

You are what you absorb

If the leaves on your tree start to go brown all of a sudden, what would you do? Would you start by painting the leaves green? Or, would you think like a gardener, and address the roots of the tree with hydration and the right nourishment?

What you eat is important, but if you cannot absorb the food properly, your body doesn’t get the building blocks it needs. Functional nutrition not only looks at what is on your plate, but also on the body’s ability to break down, absorb and use the food efficiently. Is your digestion working as it should? Is your blood sugar regulation working properly? Are your organs receiving all the nutrients they need?

We are not all alike, especially when it comes to our digestive systems. Depending on who you are and what you demand from your body in your daily life, you have to tune in and support it differently. This becomes even more important if you are an athlete as you require more from your body. Nutritional Therapists are trained to help each client find the right type of whole foods that will support, restore balance, enhance the ability to heal, and make you perform at optimum level.

Of course the type of fuel you put into your “tank” is important (you don’t want to put diesel into a gasoline car), but if your tank is leaking, or your engine is clogged up and your oil lamp is constantly blinking, it is just a matter of time before you break down. Making sure that the whole system is working well is as important as the fuel we put in.

What is this not?

This is not a quick fix or short term solution. This is not about counting calories at every meal. This is to help your body find a healthy balance and supporting it along the way. We are looking for a long term solution for you, so you can support your body finding a healthy balance and be pain free.

Did you know that the liver completely renews itself within six months? We make new cells every day. These cells form our organs and organ systems. With the right “building material” we can rebuild our systems and body. You might start feeling improvements after just a few weeks of making changes and that is great. But to make a long-lasting improvement it is going to take some more time and dedication on your part. Your health did not completely deteriorate over night, so we also need some time to build it up.

What I focus on:

Helping athletes reach their goals is something I really enjoy. And the category’s have piled up over the years with Cycling, Cyclo-Cross, MTB, Marathons, Triathlon, Powerman, Ironman, Swimming, Rugby, Handball, Basketball, Tennis, Ice-skating, Ice-hockey, CrossFit ,Ultra Trail Running, as well as professional musicians. Maybe you will help me add on another category?

Frequently Asked Questions

How does the personalized plan work?

The first step is all about information gathering. You will fill out a couple of questionnaires on paper and online. Once I have that information, we will make an appointment to meet and talk about your health goals.

How many appointments do I need to get started, for the personalized plan?

Making a change in your body will take a bit of time, so it’s important to commit and dedicate a chunk of time right away. To start you need a minimum of 2 appointments to get going. After that you can book single sessions. The norm is to have 3-5 weeks in between appointments.

What is the first meeting like, and how long does it take?

For program A the meeting will take about 80 minutes. We will go through the plan and the reasoning behind it.
For program B, (personalized) the first meeting will take about 60 minutes. We will go through all the information gathered, look at your health goals and start making a plan to get there.

Does the appointments have to be in person?

No, it is possible to do the whole program online. For program B, it is beneficial to have at least one appointment in person.

Am I ready for change?

For this Functional Nutrition Program, I only accept clients who are motivated to make the necessary steps to achieve their goals. This program asks for active participation and collaboration from the client. You may want to change right now, but may not be ready or in a position to be able to commit to the process for any number of reasons. In that case it is better to wait, until you are ready to work for what you want.
