Nutritional Counseling and Consultation

Nutrition Resource offers both basic nutrition counseling for those who want to make dietary improvements as well as therapeutic nutritional support for specific health conditions. My specialty is nutrition assessment, the process of determining individual nutrient needs and metabolic balance.


Basic Nutrition Counseling

I offer both basic nutrition counseling for those who want to make dietary improvements, as well as therapeutic nutritional support for specific health conditions. My specialty is nutrition assessment, the process of determining individual nutrient needs and body chemistry balance. As a health professional, I contract to work individually with you on the goals you identify in our interview and evaluation process.


My recommendations for nutrition testing, changes in food selection and nutritional supplementation are based on a thorough assessment and developed according  to your input and at a commitment level of your choosing. Individuality is a primary principle guiding my nutrition work. No two people are alike in their specific nutritional needs nor in their ability to change eating patterns.


I will support your efforts by tailoring a nutrition plan that (1) is realistic for you to follow in terms of time, energy and financial commitment, (2) meets your specific nutritional needs and health concerns, and (3) is enjoyable, tasty, and sustainable - something you can LIVE with.


Comprehensive Nutrition Assessment

The following appointment schedule has proven effective for most individuals; It may be modified for your particular needs. Phase I only is sufficient to both establish your personal nutrition baseline, and to address specific health concerns.


Phase I - Assessment Work-Up & Personalized Nutrition Plan

The Initial visit consists of a thorough interview, review of completed Health Forms and Nutrition Questionnaire (provided), past medical records, and a nutrition examination. Recommendations for nutrition testing and any other modifications are made at this time. At the second visit approximately two weeks later, test results are explained against the backdrop of all of the other data collected at the initial visit. Karl offers his impression and provides a hand written summary of your personalized recommendations along with supportive handouts and educational aids. You have now established a baseline reference point which gives you more certainty about what's right for you now, and well into the future. Any follow-up beyond this point is optional, but highly recommended.


PHASE II Follow-Up & Modify Recommendations (4 and 8 weeks after Phase I)

This is a crucial phase in making successful and sustainable diet and lifestyle changes. Now that you've had a chance to live with the changes we've instituted it's important to evaluate what's working and what's not? Honesty is more important than perfection. If you can explain where you fell short, I can explain a modified approach that you'll find more successful. The visits in this phase are generally much shorter than in Phase I.


PHASE III Re-Evaluation & Fine-Tuning (4 & 12 weeks after Phase II)

At this point noticeable improvement should be observed. However, even though you may feel better on one level, it is imperative to be re-evaluated on all of the other levels originally assessed. Using the baseline established from your initial work-up, re-testing will provide a true and well rounded picture of your nutritional status. Then you will know that what you feel working is safely synchronized with all related body systems, having an overall beneficial effect.


No Quick Fix: Please remember that nutritional healing is relatively slow when compared to conventional medicine.It is best done within the context of ones total lifestyle.   While noticeable improvement may be felt in as little as a few days, it actually takes a few months for the full benefit of this new level of nourishment to be realized.
