Tamara is certified in Metabolic Typing which helps to determine your unique metabolic needs. Nutrition is the foundation of a great health building plan. Biochemical individuality means that we all have different requirements for nutrition. While we all need the full spectrum of nutrients, the quality and amounts of nutrients are tailored to each individual.
Tamara is also certified in Functional Diagnostic Nutrition which enables her to uncover compromises in the foundations of health: Diet, Digestion, Hormones, Immune system and the Mucosal Barrier. Symptoms are the body's way of communicating there is a problem. There are two approaches to addressing symptoms. The most common approach is to take a drug or herbal remedy to suppress the symptom. This allows the problem to continue unchecked or escalate because you can no longer hear your body communicating the problem. The Functional Diagnostic Nutrition approach is to find the underlying cause of the symptom(s) and support the foundational systems in the body to alleviate any symptoms. Tamara uses functional lab assessments to create individual, customized protocols that support and restore function from the foundation up.
