Do you take insurance?
Answer: Unfortunately No. All services are private pay only.
Why on earth not?
Answer: Billing insurance for Restorative Nutrition patients would require more work, lower reimbursements, and less time spent with patients. With all that time saved, Laura will spend more time listening to her patients, educating her patients, supporting and encouraging her patients. When she does have time to spare, she will be praying over each patient diligently.
What kind of health conditions do you work with?
Answer: Laura has worked with patients of every kind. While her focus is on inflammatory conditions and gut health, this branches into almost every disease and symptom you can think of, as well as athletic performance and general wellness. Some of the most common complaints/conditions would include (but are not limited to):
- Stomach Pain
- Skin Irritations
- Water Retention (feeling puffy and unable to lose stubborn weight)
- Inability to Lose Weight Despite Healthy Lifestyle
- General Lack of Health
- And SO. MUCH. MORE
- Autoimmune Diseases
- Chronic Fatigue
- Brain Fog
- IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome)
- Inflammatory Bowel Disease
- Crohn’s Disease
- Bloating, Gas, Constipation and/or Diarrhea
How many consultations will I need?
Answer: It varies. Laura has found that patients are much more successful long term when they do at least 3-5 consultations. Consistent consultations during the first few months help equip patients to understand and manage their health better in the future. Thus, every patient is asked to commit to a minimum of 3 consultations.
Laura’s ultimate goal is to empower you to be self-sufficient. She often says, “If I do my job well, you shouldn’t need me forever.”
I am very healthy, but I feel like I should feel better than I do. Can you help?
Answer: You bet! Let’s get you feeling better before you ever start feeling worse. Laura would love to help you improve your health and quality of life so that you have the energy to wholeheartedly pursue everything God gives you to pursue.
What if I am doing everything right?
Answer: Awesome! You probably have tremendous self-discipline and understanding. Often, there are things that happen in your body that you may not be aware of. Some of the healthiest people can sometimes feel the worst. It is not because you are doing anything wrong. You just might need to know a few more things to adjust for what your body needs.
I just want to lose weight. Do you ever just focus on Weight Loss?
Answer: Sort of. Restorative Nutrition focuses on healing the body from the inside out. When you do that, weight loss usually follows! However, the focus is not solely on weight loss. There are no calorie restrictions or weigh-ins. The goal is to shift your focus, recognizing that weight loss is a good thing when it is a result of the body being healed and restored and strengthened… but it is not the ultimate goal.
We seek to lose weight in a way that is sustainable AND healthy.
What do you mean “under God”? Will you just be preaching at me during our consultations?
Answer: Nope! This means we enlist the help and wisdom of God to know what is best for you. We want to know what is He saying FOR YOU. Science can point us to a lot of answers, but God may be showing us a better way. His yoke is easy and His burden is light.
We pray before we start, and we welcome God to come and speak in whatever way He chooses.
Do I have to be a Christian?
Answer: No! If you wish to receive nutrition counseling without the Christian faith component, Laura is more than happy to honor you in that.
