New Year news!

Hello again!

I hope you are all staying warm as we make our way into the coldest months of the year.

Now that we’re one month into the New Year I wanted to check in with you. How are you doing with your New Year’s resolutions and intentions? I’ve heard from some of my clients that they are struggling more than they expected to, while others are really crushing their goals!

If you’re having trouble let me know how I can help! I want this to be the year that you break through your nutrition challenges. Let’s set up a one-on-one session and see where we can make some improvements to make sure you achieve your goals this year!

I also wanted to update you all on some things that have been going on in my life! As some of you know, I work full time as a metabolic/pediatric dietitian at St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital. I’ve been working incredibly hard on building up my private practice on nights and weekends. This has been exciting, but also increasingly challenging as my business grows.

For that reason I made one of my New Year’s resolutions to make a shift in how my career looked this year…I had no idea that I would be able to check that resolution off just two weeks into January!

So, in the next few weeks I will be transitioning to part time at my clinical job, in order to give my practice the space to grow. I will be available for private consults on Monday, Friday, and Saturday at that time. I will still offer night availability but on those days I will soon have the option to see you during the day!

Shoot me an email at prananutritionist@gmail.com to set up your session!

There’s another really exciting thing I wanted to share with you guys! I was just named one of 2019’s Nutritionists for the New Year by PeopleMaven.com!! Check out the whole list here: 2019 Nutritionists

Let me know what’s working for you this year so far! I’d love to hear about your nutrition successes!

Pop the champagne - or kombucha! Whatever fizzy bev you prefer!

I’m really excited to have you be a part of this new featured content, so please pass it along to anyone you think would benefit from it!

So if you’ve been keeping up with me for a little bit you’re probably wondering what is new and exciting at PN! I’m glad you asked.

In addition to food sensitivity testing, I now offer four different laboratory tests through Spectracell. The new tests are nutritional (micronutrient), cardiovascular, hormones and thyroid, and genetic testing. Below is a description of each, as stated on their website.

Nutritional Testing: Micronutrient testing measures how micronutrients are actually functioning within your white blood cells. These tests allow for nutritional assessment of clinical conditions, general wellness and the prevention of chronic diseases such as arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular risk, diabetes, immunological disorders and metabolic disorders.

CardioMetabolic Testing: Poor blood sugar regulation and unhealthy triglyceride and lipoprotein levels often present long before a diagnosis of Type 2 Diabetes. This test helps define your risk for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD), progression toward Type 2 Diabetes, and inflammation.

Hormone & Thyroid testing: A comprehensive (male and female) hormone panel that reveals the overall state of hormonal balance. Like nutrients, hormones influence all aspects of health and disease - mood, sleep, metabolism, immunity, heart health and appearance. An imbalance of one hormone can alter other hormones, so a comprehensive look at hormone status is key.
Thyroid hormones regulate functions like metabolism, emotions and thinking. I also test several proteins that affect thyroid function as well as antibodies to thyroid which can detect autoimmunity (when the immune system attacks healthy tissue) and your levels of cortisol (the stress hormone).

Genetic Testing: Telomeres, Apolipoprotein E, MTHFR, and Factor V Leiden Prothrombin. Telomeres are sections of genetic material at the end of each chromosome. As a cell ages, its telomeres become shorter. Eventually, the telomeres become too short to allow cell replication, the cell stops dividing and will ultimately die - a normal biological process. This test can determine the length of your telomeres in relation to your age. *Fun fact: a plant-based diet helps prevent telomere shortening!

What else?

Next month I have a super exciting and exclusive announcement about a passion project I’ve been working on. I will be emailing you about this awesome launch in the next few weeks, and you won’t want to miss the part about the incredible discount that I’m offering for only a limited time - trust me!

What would you like to see in your inbox? Let me know below in the comments section! I don’t want to be just another boring newsletter that you receive, so tell me what you’d like to learn about and let’s make it happen!
