A consultation for your teenager is designed to inspire him or her to enjoy a higher quality diet, to develop healthier eating patterns and to address the nutritional roots of any health conditions. Consultations are designed to be streamlined, concise, non-judgmental, and are created in a workshop format in order to better maintain his or her attention. Parental or client concerns such as overweight or underweight are addressed in a non-intimidating manner and from a perspective of offering your teenager the tools to feel his or her best, to enjoy better athletic performance and a reduced risk of injury, as well as improved concentration/focus, and optimal sleep quality. Maintaining a healthy weight is particularly important for this age group as we know that overweight teenagers have a much higher risk of continuing to have weight issues as adults. Targeted nutritional therapy with diet and a few well-chosen nutritional supplements helps this age group avoid common nutritional inadequacies, such as magnesium deficiency (often resulting in chronic constipation and muscle cramps).  Poor iron intake, commonly seen in this age group, may result in anemia and/or affect heart rate and energy level.  Poor calcium intake may affect bone density as well as sleep quality and muscle contraction.  Natural alternatives to Ritalin are a common request for this age group and this program offers a well-chosen approach to prescription-free alternatives for ADD/ADHD.
