FAQ's

 

WHY DO I NEED A HOLISTIC NUTRITIONIST AS OPPOSED TO A DIETICIAN?

A holistic nutritionist uses whole food as a tool for healing and can help you develop a nutrition strategy & meal plan that addresses your personal nutrient requirements and health goals.  I have spent years studying, researching & taste-testing the most nutrient-dense foods and recipes to deliver you with whole-food solutions that are practical, delicious & family friendly.   

My initial consult is 90 minutes long (& sometimes longer) because I spend a lot of time asking questions and really listening to you, your concerns and what you want to achieve.  My recommendations and the personalized programme I put together for you comprise diet, supplementation and lifestyle so that your results are meaningful and sustainable.

I am not a dietician.  I do not follow the standard food pyramid.  I believe that everyone is biochemically unique and that we each have our own special nutrient requirements.  My job is to help you uncover what those are so that you can thrive and be all that you can be.

WHERE DID YOU EARN YOUR NUTRITION DEGREE?

I studied with the Edison Institute of Nutrition (Canada), an accredited institution with the Canadian Association of Natural Nutritional Practitioners and the International Organization of Nutritional Consultants, as well as other professional organizations.  I obtained a Diploma in Holistic Nutrition (First Class Honours).  In order to keep abreast of the latest scientific developments in nutrition, I continue my education with various trainings and courses throughout the year intended for professionals in the nutrition industry.  

DO YOU HAVE AN OFFICE?

No. I prefer to consult via skype to cut down on everyone’s traveling time.  Plus, skype enables us to connect no matter where we are in the world.     

However, if you live in Hong Kong, I will happily meet you in your home, office or other suitable location.   

WHAT IF I NEED BLOOD OR URINE TESTS?

I am not a doctor or a naturopathic doctor.  I do not diagnose or treat disease and I do not have a license to draw blood or physically take fluid or bodily specimens for analysis.  If medical testing is required, then usually, I will refer you to your doctor for these so that you can get them covered by insurance.  However, I also work with Biorna Quantics who provide state-of-art of self-tests for everything from food intolerances & SIBOs to DNA testing.  

I SEE YOU WORK ON THE BASIS OF A PACKAGE BUT WHAT IF ALL I NEED IS SOME GENERAL ADVICE?

I totally get that.  Sometimes, people just want to talk to a friendly person, who happens to be a nutritionist, and get some solid advice on topics such as weight loss, vitality and children’s health.   

In this case, I have three options for you:

  • Join my Facebook community for healthy eaters: “Thrive Nutrition Practice”.  Here you can get my latest recipes & nutrition advice, post your questions and receive tips from me and from a whole community of savvy people who are most likely struggling with the same issues you are.
  • Join my #IKILLEDMYSUGARBEAST BOOTCAMP.  I launch this 4-week, group programme globally two times a year (January & May) -- at a massively reduced discount.  It is ideal if you are looking to lose weight, eliminate your sugar cravings & deal with any uncomplicated yeast issues.  It comes with a complete dietary protocol, supplement programme and lifestyle recommendations plus my most delicious selection of Sugar Beast killing recipes.  I will even team you up with a buddy if you like!  If your main goal is to do a bit of a detox and lose weight, this is a great place to start.
  • Host a workshop.  Get a group of friends together and I will come over to your place and give you the nutrition solutions to your health challenges.  My most popular workshops include: “Nutrition Solutions for Eczema”, “Killing the Sugar Beast” & “Probiotics & Your Child’s Gut Health”.
  • Come to one of my events.  For all the upcoming dates, get on my Facebook group.

BUT I’M TOO SHY TO TALK ABOUT MY HEALTH QUESTIONS ON SOCIAL MEDIA OR IN A GROUP SETTING…

I hear you.  Leave me your contact details and I’ll get in touch for a quick 15-min chat.  We can take it from there.  But the decision to take it to the next level is always yours.  

HOW DO I PAY FOR YOUR SERVICES?

By credit card online or bank transfer.  I will send you an invoice after our first appointment.
