How does Path to Health measure a client’s success?
I measure my clients success first by elimination of their symptoms, and secondly through blood work results. The reason I look at elimination of symptoms first is because sometimes my clients blood work looks great, but they feel horrible, or they might have high cholesterol and low Vitamin D, but nothing that is obviously causing all of their issues. Blood work catches things once they've gotten pretty bad. So symptoms are king in my book.
What's the difference between a Clinical Nutritionist and a Registered Dietitian?
A Registered Dietitian is trained to look at macro nutrients like carbohydrates, proteins and fats. They encourage and recommend calorie counting, and base that recommendation off your height, weight, age, etc. If you have diabetes, they focus on your pancreas, but might not look at digestion, or liver function, or stress, or any other variable that might be causing you to crave sugar in the first place.
A Clinical Nutritionist looks at the body as a whole, meaning it's very interconnected. For example, the liver controls fat metabolism, which affects digestion, bowel movements, sleep and hormones. Similarly, blood sugar can affect the function of the thyroid and adrenal glands which has an effect on energy, hormone production, blood pressure and allergies. So if you come in with headaches, we DON'T just focus on your head. We're also going to look at liver function, sugar intake, sleep, stress, and much more. By doing that, we'll get to the root cause of your issues and heal them.
