The past few weeks I have been really busy with clients that are receiving their ALCAT test results. I have made a few observations that I knew were coming, but I did not realize how much help my clients need trying to figure out how they are going to survive on the foods that they can and are finding that they need to change the way they are eating. Often overwhelmed at first glance of the results, after we meet, they immediately head to the grocery store. I think this is a good move, but it can be even more overwhelming and stressful going to the grocery store by yourself after you have received the results…. it is a recipe for a breakdown. Believe me, I’ve been there!
So I have decided to add a new service for the benefit of my clients, to help them become comfortable going to the grocery store. I want my clients to become confident that they CAN do this, it is not as hard as it may sound at first. I have added guided grocery store trips to my clients that are just receiving their ALCAT test results, I feel this will put them at ease and get used to looking at labels, it seems practical to go with my clients rather than trying to explain even more to them after they already have to take in the fact that they need to cut out certain foods for a specific amount of time.
So for a small but very beneficial fee- I will go grocery shopping with you! We will go to whatever grocery store that my clients frequent and for ever how long it takes us, we will successfully figure out all kinds of foods and combinations you can create and cook.
I feel this will definitely help my clients as well as myself building a trusted bond with my clients, I want them to be able to ask me anything about nutrition they want to and feel comfortable with their lifestyle changes and such. So that is my new and exciting service that I will be offering, it will be optional, but I feel it will be HIGHLY beneficial for my clients.
So far, my cleints that have been avoiding their reactive foods have told me that they are sleeping through the night for the first time in years and they feel better over all. Personally since I have been avoiding my reactive foods, I sleep through the night- no more waking up at 4am anymore AND my joints are not HALF as achy as they used to be! Whoo hoo!
This is definitely a valuable test that I am offering in my practice, if you want to learn more about the test- see my post: What’s the deal with the ALCAT test.
