One of our most popular services is a consult with our Health Coach. Integrated Health Centre uses a Bio-Electrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) to help determine what your body looks like on the inside. Some of the things this BIA tells us is the amount of lean versus non-lean mass, you body's water content and the amount of your weight you carry in fat versus non-fat weight. From here, a nutrition guide can be developed to help determine the amount of dairy, vegetables, proteins, oils and more that you should be consuming daily. No plans, just food choices.
The consultation also includes finding out a bit about your lifestyle and how you can incorporate positive eating. Whether you have family to feed, live independently, are a busy business person - there are ways to eat more nutritiously to the benefit of your health. Many people find that a meeting with our Health Coach can expedite the process that you are looking to achieve.
Integrated Health Centre believes strongly in Functional Medicine, a patient-focused way of helping peopel be well. Functional Medicine means that you look for the cause of disease, not just the treatment of symptoms. It means that you find an approach to a treatment that works for the patient, something they can actively participate in towards wellness. To achieve this, we spend time with patients, listenting to them and finding out about anything in their lives that needs to be addressed in order for them to be healthier.
