At Foundations, our Registered Natural Nutritionist utilizes a holistic approach to nutrition coaching that considers your entire lifestyle, rather than simply the calories you consume or the symptoms of a particular disease and/or diagnosis. Our Natural Nutritional Clinical Practitioner, Janice Wiggins, will pick up where diets and one-size-fits-all methods have failed, leaving you feeling like you will never succeed. Her goal is to provide you with the tools you need to look and feel your best.
Janice will work with you to help you identify how your diet and lifestyle might be impacting your overall health. Together, you can tackle:
- Weight loss
- Inflammation and pain management
- Food sensitivities
- Brain health
- Menopause symptoms
- Pre-Conception planning
- Poor sleep
- Improving wellness and longevity
Certified by the Canadian Association of Natural Nutritional Practitioners and the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy, our Nutrition Coach will create a personalized plan for you that is based on the latest research on nutrition and lifestyle medicine.
How to get started:
At your first appointment, our strength coach will review your health history as well as discuss and determine your unique goals for care. From here, you will be taken through a functional movement assessment, which allows your coach to develop a training program that is tailored to your health and performance goals.
Before your initial Nutrition & Lifestyle Assessment, you will be asked to complete intake forms. This will include specialized health and nutrition questionnaires based on your goals. You will also be asked to record what you eat for 5 days prior to your initial session. This will help your Nutrition Coach to make targeted nutritional recommendations for your unique goals, lifestyle, and health.
What to expect from your intake appointment:
During your first appointment, Janice will review your intake forms and food logs and together, you will assess your nutritional and lifestyle priorities. She will answer any questions you may have, determine which coaching plans are best suited to help you reach your goals, as well as discuss potential solutions to barriers to progress that you have experienced in the past or may experience in the future.
At your Nutrition & Lifestyle personalized plan appointment, Janice will provide you with a targeted food plan based on your nutritional objectives. You will also receive a grocery list, a weekly food planner with recipes and a comprehensive nutrition guide for your reference.
Those who chose to have additional coaching support will benefit from regular check-ins and additional supporting documentation. Our Nutrition Coach will also monitor your progress and refine your nutrition and lifestyle objectives to help you reach your goals.
