What to expect?
What ails you? This is where your journey begins with Lydia. It is important to understand that a single consultation is not the solution to your health troubles, nor will it layout the path to your health goals. An initial consultation with Lydia is the first step in your therapeutic education. You wouldn’t expect to go to a yoga class once and come out in great shape, you don’t expect to meet your therapist once and have complete self awareness, on the contrary, these are life long endeavours that require constant attention. Nutrition is no different. Your body is unique, it is forever changing, and it requires constant care, love, intentional awareness and support. First Lydia will work with you to clarify your current unique health. At this time you will also be carefully determining your health goals. Expect this to require at least an initial and follow up consultation. From here Lydia can formulate therapeutic plans using food as medicine in order to achieve established short and long term goals.
