FUNCTIONAL DIAGNOSTIC NUTRITION CONSULTATIONS

Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® is a science-based holistic approach to investigating and identifying the root cause of your health problems. These consultations are designed to bridge the gap between functional medicine and clinical nutrition for clients with imbalances beyond the reach of diet and exercise alone.

 

A functional nutrition approach addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. It uses individualised lab testing to identify healing opportunities within the hormone, immune, digestion, detoxification and intestinal barrier systems. Restoring balance to the systems of the body often requires a combination of interventions including therapeutic diets, sleep hygiene, exercise recommendations, stress reduction strategies and supplementation protocols.

 

Before your appointment, you will be required to complete a series of in-depth health intake questionnaires so that I can better understand your current health challenges and your health journey so far.

 

All consultations are completed by video or telephone conference, using Skype, FaceTime or standard voice calls. Your initial consultations is 90 minutes, with follow-up appointments to discuss results and recommendations for 60 minutes. Subsequent appointments are 40 minutes to assess progress and make adjustments and further recommendations where necessary.

 

You can choose your booking time and make payment via our ONLINE BOOKING system. We will ship or courier any test kits or products required as part of your treatment protocol.

“I want to give a big recommendation to Bella Lindemann if you need to work out why you have any number of these symptoms; you’re tired, you eat well and exercise but can’t shift the kilo’s, you have brain fog, acne, indigestion and fatigue to name a few. I have been personally working with her to help me and while I still have progress to make the difference so far has been excellent. She is super flexible with her times and has online consultations so you don’t need to travel. Feeling stuck with your food and symptoms…. get in contact via her website.”

Functional Diagnostic Nutrition is a great option if you want to:

>  Discover the root cause problems that are keeping you sick
>  Get access to functional lab testing to uncover the hidden stressors in your body
>  Troubleshoot common problems like gut infections, food sensitivities, hormonal imbalances and liver toxicity
>  Look at your body holistically, instead of just chasing symptoms

>  Use natural therapies backed by science instead of synthetic pharmaceutical alternatives

>  Customise your diet and supplements based on a healing protocol for YOUR body

>  Learn to understand the systems of the body and how to take control of your own health

>  Work with someone who has dealt with chronic digestive issues themselves

 

I work with clients who:

>  Are committed to restoring their health to 100% function

>  Want to learn more about their body so that they can take control of their own health and healing long term

>  Are willing to make the necessary changes and investment required to improve their health

>  Have tried other approaches, conventional or otherwise, that haven’t worked

 

I don’t work with clients who:

>  Are happy to be dependent on medications or very restrictive diets for life to control their digestive symptoms

>  Feel that making the necessary diet and lifestyle changes are too inconvenient or impossible for them

>  Want a quick fix or magic pill to solve their health problems

>  Aren’t prepared to take responsibility for their own health and healing

Bella is an incredibly caring individual that has the perfect combination of empathy and intelligence to truly make a difference in people’s lives. Before I met Bella, I was at rock bottom and I was beginning to think I just had to accept my broken body and that was life. It took some time, hard work and a lot of patience but with Bella’s support and guidance my energy is back and I finally feel like I can make it through a whole day without a nap. My digestive issues have eased, bloating is now a rare occurrence not a daily struggle, my lady hormones are back in balance and I am significantly less anxious.”

I have never been fat but I had always had this layer around my middle that wouldn’t shift. On top of all that I had always suffered from chronic constipation my whole life. It was ‘normal’ for me and I didn’t worry about it too much. I had heard from Bella about seriously looking into my diet especially my sugar addiction but had been slow to act. Then, after eating out with friends I had a disastrous day of bloating and gas that was so bad – in a public museum – that I knew I had to take my diet more seriously. Since then I discovered a candida overgrowth, food sensitivities and hormone imbalances. And dragging my husband along for the ride discovered parasites, candida, food sensitivities and hormone imbalances in him as well!
Fast forward 6 months and we are like new kids! Bella was patient and generous with her time. She took the route we wanted to take, in our case full on with full testing, diet changes, supplements, the lot. I wanted to be well, and now I am. Oh, and that persistent middle layer is gone, along with my constipation. Who would have thought?
We now live in Arizona, but the distance hasn’t been an issue. Lucky we all have FaceTime!
I would love to recommend Bella to anyone who is having gut issues – and I have.

PRE-TRAVEL HEALTH CONSULTATIONS

Planning a trip? Be prepared. Pre-travel consultations offer a dedicated time to prepare you for any concerns or health risks associated with an upcoming adventure or holiday. During this session, we will:

> Discuss your travel plans and assess the risks associated with regions or countries you will be visiting

> Review your travel and health history as well as your main concerns and health goals

> Educate you on any risks and natural prevention options available for common conditions such as traveller’s diarrhoea, malaria and altitude sickness

> Educate you on ways to self-manage your health during your trip

> Discuss practical strategies around food, water and other choices to reduce the risk of travel illness

> Review current travel warnings and advice for your region of travel

 

A pre-travel consult is of particular value for anyone with a history of illness or irritable bowel symptoms whilst travelling, which increases your risk of repeat illness. If you plan on visiting a country in the tropics (i.e. in Asia, Africa, Middle East, South America) then a pre-travel consultation is highly recommended.

 

All consultations are completed by video or telephone conference, using Skype, FaceTime or standard voice calls. Your consultation will last 40 minutes and should be made at least one month before traveling to your destination. You can choose your booking time and make payment via our ONLINE BOOKING system.

POST-TRAVEL HEALTH CONSULTATIONS

Travel related illnesses affect up to 50% of travellers to tropical and developing countries. Many of these relate to gastrointestinal (GI) infections associated with food and waterborne pathogens. Most travel related GI infections present themselves during or soon after travel in the form of diarrhoea, constipation or other IBS-type symptoms. However, because of incubation periods with certain bacteria and parasites, some travellers only present with symptoms weeks or months after returning home.

 

Before your appointment, you will be required to complete a post-travel health questionnaire so that I can better understand your travel history and current health challenges. The focus of a post-travel health consultation will be on determining which, if any, functional lab tests are required to determine the root cause of your condition.

 

For most clients, this includes a Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis (CDSA) to assess the microbiological environment of the gut. It reports on pathogenic (parasites, bacteria and yeast/fungus) and imbalanced colonising organisms, as well as identifying the levels of beneficial flora. Identification of pathogens is strongly associated with IBS, diarrhea, constipation, gas and bloating, abdominal pain, chronic fatigue, skin irritations, and recent overseas travel.

 

All consultations are completed by video or telephone conference, using Skype, FaceTime or standard voice calls. Your initial consultations is 60 minutes, with follow-up appointments to discuss results and recommendations for 60 minutes. Subsequent appointments are 40 minutes to assess progress and make adjustments and further recommendations where necessary.

 

You can choose your booking time and make payment via our ONLINE BOOKING system. We will ship or courier any test kits or products required as part of your treatment protocol.
