A Better Way

Podcast Review Of The Week (1)



Kaizen Nutrition & Wellness began with a question ???

“how to provide accessible, comprehensive integrative services that address the root cause of symptoms, primarily using food as medicine to support healing?”

We know first-hand that it can be frustrating to bounce from practitioner to practitioner with bits and pieces, but no real eye on the overall wellness plan, or improvement in symptoms.

We are here to pull it all together and support your body’s natural ability to heal with food.

We Thought Of Everything!

We know that healing is dynamic!  It involves not only addressing the physiology (what is physically happening in the body) but other factors that impact health such as stress, nutrition, sleep, movement, emotions, and areas in the body of stagnant energy flow.  Our bodies don’t lie – all of these factors play a significant role in the healing process.  That is why we have thoughtfully curated resources and services to support your journey- with more to come- because we are always thinking of new ways to empower you to support your healing.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes!  Visit the appointment page to schedule an exploratory call or appointment.  You can select the type of appointment that works best for your needs.

We are excited to offer a unique integrative and functional nutrition approach that is appropriate for all conditions and symptoms ranging from gastrointestinal, to cardiovascular, autoimmune, neurological, hormonal, anxiety, and more.  Often when clients come to us, they are frustrated with a lack of support, compassionate care, and targeted strategies to help them start the healing process.  Unfortunately, we sometimes hear that clients have been told their symptoms “are all in their head” and yet, we are able to find gut imbalances or nutrient deficiencies that contribute directly to their symptoms. 

Maybe you feel that you eat pretty well and know what you need to do, and just need a little accountability to help you reach your goals.  Short health coaching sessions can facilitate development of those small measurable goals. 

For those who are more independent that want to learn online, we even have options for you through our online learning platform.  There is so much to learn in health and nutrition, and the science is continually evolving, so for those who just love learning or gaining information that will help achieve optimal health, we have an option for you. 

For those that love data and are test junkies (you know who you are) we have a wide variety of testing options for you.  We do not believe in being a barrier to getting the testing you wish to have, and nutrition consults are not required to order any tests, however a free 15-minute exploratory call is recommended to accurately complete a testing requisition form.  Visit our appointment page to schedule your call.  

In short, we have something for everyone!

Yes!  If you are interested in working with us we can call to verify your insurance benefits for you.   Your insurance claims will be filed for you as well.

Nutrition consultations using insurance must meet in-person and Telehealth services will not be reimbursed by your insurance company, EXCEPT in cases of national emergency such as covid-19.

Clients who are paying out-of-pocket for nutrition consultations may use a secure telehealth option. 

Health coaching is not currently reimbursed by insurance companies, and has the option to use telehealth as well.

Our telehealth services are offered through an electronic health record called, Healthie.  Once an appointment is scheduled, Healthie will prompt you to complete intake paperwork, and remind you when there is an upcoming appointment.  To access the secure video consult, click on your appointment and join the call.  Healthie offers more functionality when viewing from a computer, but an app version is also available.  The website for login and access to your electronic health record is www.gethealthie.com.

Visit the Appointment page to learn more about the appointment types offered.  If you do not find an option that works well for you, let’s talk about your needs and come up with a custom option.  A FREE 15-minutes exploratory call is a good way to get started!  For a la carte testing options visit the products page.
