Improving your life is my goal. Overcoming multiple, complex chronic issues without a “band-aid” approach is my passion.
Finding Root Causes of Your Symptoms
Symptoms are an expression of a problem. Functional health practitioners try to change the causes of symptoms. This is not what most practitioners do. They often don’t have much time to spend with you on a regular basis and that is sometimes what it takes.
I work with clients across the US by phone or in my Diet & Health Center in San Antonio. Contact me to see if we might be a good fit. I’ve been in practice since 1985, Board Certified as a Clinical Nutritionist in 1989.
DISCLAIMER: I am not a licensed medical doctor and cannot diagnose, treat or prescribe. I help you be a better advocate for yourself by increasing your knowledge of what works for you and what does not.
Who Are My Preferred Clients?
Experienced health-seekers who understand that a quick phone call or two and supplement or three will NOT unravel multiple life issues.
No one has ONE issue. Our stories are complex and unique. I must understand this to work on the whole person.
This takes time and commitment on your part. Multiple sessions, labs, change in food and habits, revamped supplements and a med check too.
Who Does the Actual Work Here?
You do! Step #1 is an anti-inflammatory diet, grain-free, sugar-free, eating on time. Supplements can’t overcome a diet lacking sufficient animal protein, good fats and vegetables. It’s best if you are making progress to eating this way before contacting me. This will save YOUR coaching time and money. This is just the FIRST of multiple steps and appointments.
Email me a summary of what you’re hoping I can help you with.
Once we set a date, please commit to it.
Better Health = Changing Your Body’s Chemistry
Most practitioners start with profitable labs and pricey pills. That’s a cookbook approach. (Symptom XXX? Take pill YYY). People spend thousands on labs they may not need and get the same supplements as everyone else. This is common, but totally wrong.
I will give you Homework, sometimes a lot of it. Please don’t contact me if you want quick tips. Working deeply on chronic issues is my passion.
Nutrient Response Testing
Once we have worked together two or three times and have the labs I want, I can begin to suggest supplements. Either by my “best guess”, or using Advanced Kinesiology Testing in-house with samples you submit.
Supplements Need to be Updated
Appointments quarterly to update supplement programs. We eliminate products not needed anymore or not working at the highest level. This is ongoing, not a one-time thing.
Take a look at some Testimonials for my work here.
Fees and Support
I do not accept Insurance. I charge $150/hour – much less than other elite practitioners. Ongoing email support is not included in Consults. Please do not cancel or change appointments with less than 3 to 7 days’ notice.
There is a postage charge on all orders put together by phone for you. If you order from the Online Store only, there is free shipping at $98. I have hundreds of products in the Clinic NOT sold online that I often suggest for Clients.
What are your specialties?
Anxiety, Adrenals, Sleep, Leaky Gut, Herpes, Epstein Barr, the Thyroid, Autoimmune Disorders, Fatigue, Digestion, IBS and specialty labs such as Cyrex Labs and Diagnostechs most doctors don’t order. I have a wide range of knowledge and can assist with many issues not mentioned here. I am a passionate researcher as I am a dedicated patient for my own health.
Do Clients talk with Beverly personally?
Yes, I work alone. Your intake forms are not evaluated by an apprentice – an issue with many functional wellness practitioners.
Most appointments are 90 minutes but an hour, or half-hour may be fine once we have started working together.
Can we use your Online Store?
I only carry professional grade supplements, not discount brands. There IS a difference. One famous practitioner sells products I refuse to carry. Many of mine are priced LESS than Amazon. None are Counterfeit.
