Certified Health Coaching in Cincinnati OH

Have you ever received good advice, but have not been able to use it to make meaningful changes? Has your doctor ever recommended a lifestyle change that you found to be unsustainable? Have you looked at food labels with the intention of making healthier choices, only to realize you aren’t sure what you are supposed to eat? Have you been tricked by the food industry into thinking foods that are labeled “fat free” or “sugar free” will actually help you lose weight?

Have you ever wanted something in your life, but found you couldn’t achieve it alone? Our Certified Health Coach is the solution you have been looking for.

improve your health

Most of us have a sense of what we “should” be doing to improve our health, unfortunately we just don’t do it! We have all heard about the importance of sleep, eating healthy, abstaining from smoking and limiting alcohol intake, and exercise. A study published by the CDC of nearly 400,000 U.S. adults found that only 6% engage in all five of these basic health behaviors, despite knowing how important they are for our health and wellness. Traditional medicine has taught

us to take pills to treat problems. If you develop a side effect from one medication, take another. Functional Medicine focuses on treating the whole individual through proactive lifestyle changes and, most importantly, a shift in mindset to create new healthy habits. Information is not enough to change behavior. Without a support system, most of us will not succeed in shifting our mindset or changing our trajectory towards health and wellness.

Step 1

We begin with an Initial Consultation (50 minutes). At this consultation we take a full medical history, including conditions you are currently being treated for and medications you are taking to determine how diet and lifestyle may be playing a role.

Step 2

Body Composition Test

We offer Body Composition Testing for body fat, lean body mass, and measure of cellular toxicity. We will provide you with coaching and support to help make the dietary and lifestyle changes you want.

Step 3

Informative Resources & Ancillary Testing

We provide you with simple informative handouts and recipes that will increase your nutrition knowledge. We offer several unique programs that are customized to your needs for both wellness and specifically for weight loss. We provide education and targeted solutions to address the connection between our gut health, our immune system and our risk for developing chronic diseases. We focus on natural solutions to lower inflammation and improve immune function, both for acute and chronic illness. We will utilize ancillary testing to uncover potential imbalances and deficiencies, as outlined below.

Areas of Treatment
We Provide

Food sensitivity & Allergy Testing

A blood test to help identify true IgE-mediated allergies, IgG-mediated food sensitivities, as well as intestinal permeability (also known as “leaky gut”).

 

This antibody food sensitivity test is ideal for patients who may suffer from delayed reactions/sensitivities to specific foods. A Celiac and Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity panel is an optional add-on.

Nutrient deficiency testing

Micronutrient testing measures the function of nutritional components including vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and amino acids within our white blood cells. Scientific evidence shows us that

analyzing the white blood cells gives us the most accurate analysis of a body’s deficiencies. Vitamin, mineral and antioxidant deficiencies have been shown to affect the function of the immune system which can contribute to degenerative processes and chronic disease.

comprehensive stool testing
& breath testing

Stool testing identifies imbalances in our gut microbiome (the “good bacteria” of the gut), potential pathogens including parasites, and digestive health.

It may also uncover the root cause for IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) and indicate  SIBO (Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth).

Program Options
Weight Loss Detoxification Gut Health

The HCG Metbolic Reset Diet is a physician-supervised medical weight loss program that combines HCG hormone therapy with a restricted calorie diet. It does change how your body loses weight by creating a reaction in your body that allows for rapid weight loss.

Ketogenic diets are becoming increasingly popular in treating a wide range of conditions, including obesity, diabetes, and several brain disorders like epilepsy. We offer a complete Ketogenic Lifestyle program for weight loss and wellness.

A proper detoxification program will help restore health and digestive system function by removal of harmful toxins and enhance nutrient absorption, which can help you feel more energized.

Gut healing includes a basic elimination diet and supplemental support. Our Certified Health Coach will customize an individual plan for you to 1) Remove digestive irritants and toxins, 2) Replace stomach acid and digestive enzymes, if needed 3) Repair gut health via elimination/rotation diet, supplemental support and metabolic detox, and 4) Rebalance through lifestyle changes and mindful eating.

If appropriate, Comprehensive Stool Testing can be preformed to aid in the diagnosis of parasites and uncovered imbalances in your gut microbiome (the “good bacteria” of the gut). We treat with a combination of diet and supplementation with specific herbs and holistic methods known to kill parasites. The protocol is relatively easy to follow and very effective. We also give you a probiotic to balance gut bacteria during the process.

SIBO is the presence of abnormally large numbers of bacteria in the small intestine. Often SIBO is misdiagnosed as simply IBS. The most accurate way to diagnose SIBO is a Lactulose Breath Test to detect the presence of hydrogen and/or methane gas, which are secreted from the abundant bacteria in the small intestine. Once the diagnosis is solidified, we designed a comprehensive treatment protocol to address the root cause of your symptoms.

Testimonials

"At 29, I was around 210 pounds, exhausted, had joint pain, brain fog, and plenty of other frustrating symptoms. Being a stay at home mom of two small children, I felt so defeated dealing with all my body was putting me through. I wanted to be healthy for them, for my hubby, for me! After reviewing thyroid labs from my family doctor, I wanted to dig deeper into the results and get another opinion. She did a full thyroid panel right away as well as vitamin D and B12 and other factors that may be causing some of my symptoms. When my results came back, they showed that I had Hashimoto’s, and autoimmune condition that attacks the thyroid. This was fully explained to me, I was shown all the levels of my thyroid and what they should be optimally. We made a plan with Natural thyroid medication, diet changes, cutting out gluten, adding in high doses of vitamin D along with other supplements. In addition, I’ve worked with Lauren on detoxing, nutrition and better health over all in my body. I have now lost 51 pounds since my 1st visit, have energy and feel like myself again! There are still things I’m working on to better my health, further diet changes and digging to find the root cause of my Hashimoto’s, but I’m beyond THANKFUL for the support from Dr. Brenner, Dr. Theiman, Lauren and all the staff! I feel younger at 32 than I did at 29!"
