affordable, practical help with the diet and lifestyle of the Bredesen ReCODE Protocol for a more vibrant life
What to expect in coaching sessions
How one-on-one coaching sessions unfold:
In our initial appointment, after reviewing your intake form, I listen to more of your story (beyond our phone consultation) so that we can begin to co-create a plan for implementing ReCODE™. Your welcome package may include a summary of the salient aspects of the Bredesen Protocol™, a handy Ketoflex™ 12/3 foods list, an IFM Food Guide, recipes, and a weekly meal planner, as desired.
We get started on your “Cognoscopy”. If you have not signed up for ReCODE Reports™, we’ll make records on a Tracking Biomarkers document that can also flag health priorities. If you have chosen not to enroll in ReCODE™ plus lab tests, you can collect recent relevant lab test results from your doctor. Since I am MoCA-certified, I’ll administer the Montreal Cognitive Assessment as requested. And I provide the AQ-21 assessment (designed to be answered by a spouse or close friend) as appropriate.
During follow-up coaching sessions, I tailor the Ketoflex™ diet to your preferences, your body’s gut reaction to foods, and ApoE4 status. If needed and with your authorization, I can consult your doctor about your health considerations, such as pre-diabetes/diabetes, irritable bowel, dyslipidemia, or salt-sensitive hypertension. I make the Ketoflex™ diet easier by providing clarification, meal/snack ideas, recipes, grocery product tips, and restaurant dining guidance tailored to your taste buds, budget, and time constraints.
I partner with you (and a support person, as desired) to customize ways for you to sleep sounder, train your brain, get more active, intermittently fast (for 12-16 hours), manage stress, and/or reduce toxin exposure that fit your unique lifestyle. When requested, I also educate about the general use of ReCODE™ supplements and provide a 30% discount off of Dr. Bredesen’s recommended products.
We focus on addressing root causes of your unique condition, i.e. with nutritional ketosis to reverse insulin resistance or meditative breathing to help alleviate stress.
Our time together can spark new insights, surmount challenges, and help you consistently take one step at a time without feeling overwhelmed. It’s also valuable to explore your positive vision of your healthiest, happy future self for more motivation and greater long-term success.
As applicable, we’ll review your ReCODE Report™. I’m trained to help you understand the ReCODE Report™, educate you about biomarkers, and explain what test results generally mean. Since I do not practice medicine, you would need to follow up with a doctor for prescriptive treatment of any areas of concern suggested by the Report.
In between coaching sessions, I email helpful guides and tips from the Institute for Functional Medicine’s tool kit. I also share numerous proprietary resources I’ve created to meet people’s needs and accelerate progress. (Similar guides and resources are provided in my group coaching program.)
To help gauge your progress, we can also track your cognitive and overall health symptoms. My aim is to efficiently reach the point where you’re feeling empowered to implement ReCODE™ on your own and/or you’re satisfied with your progress.
If desired, I provide referrals to trusted practitioners in San Diego, such as an inspiring certified meditation and chair yoga instructor, a local personal trainer familiar with ReCODE, and ReCODE Qualified™ doctors if you need additional help healing and progressing in all aspects of the Protocol.
