Healthy Lifestyle Refinery is designed to provide a broad range of nutrition and wellness services for clients. Whether you live an active, on-the-go lifestyle or are struggling with medical conditions, Healthy Lifestyle Refinery is here for you.
By providing integrative and functional medical nutrition therapy and prevention services, Healthy Lifestyle Refinery works hand-in-hand with clients to develop customized, therapeutic nutrition plans that address their specific medical, lifestyle, and dietary needs.
Integrative and Functional Medicine
Because everyone’s body is a complex system, nutritional needs vary from person to person – meaning a blanket approach simply doesn’t work.
Healthy Lifestyle Refinery adheres to the principles of Integrative and Functional Medicine. Unlike traditional approaches, practitioners who embrace Integrative and Functional Medicine principles shift the focus of treatment from the disease or illness to determining and addressing the root from which those issues arose. Nutrition and lifestyle play a vital role in managing conditions and there is no “one-size-fits-all” approach to managing an illness or individual.
With an Integrative and Functional approach to health services and nutrition, we can address your complete needs together and restore optimal function and vitality.
How Services are Delivered
Healthy Lifestyle Refinery works with clients on their terms – that means making services available when and how my clients need them. I meet with clients through a HIPAA compliant video conference platform or via phone, making it easy to connect and work together to bring health and wellness back to into your life.
Telehealth is modern day healthcare and as a dietitian, I have found this is the most efficient, effective, and convenient way to offer my services to the people who need them most. Clients LOVE the convenience of being able to meet with me in the comfort of their own home. Safe and secure technology enables me to provide virtual services to clients and allows us to maximize our time together. That means no waiting rooms, commuting, or fighting to find a parking space.
This revolutionary method of health care delivery allows you to access a highly trained medical professional in your office or home. Grab a cup of coffee or tea and we’ll get started! My centralized electronic medical record includes a client portal where you’ll have access to messaging, goal tracking, food photo logging, and extensive resources to ensure positive outcomes. Appointment times are also flexible for those with busy schedules.
