Because the food we eat and the diet we maintain can strongly influence why we get gout or our ability to avoid it, knowing what to eat for your specific body chemistry, is the first order of business.
My nutritional therapy training is based on assessing what is going on with each individual person’s unique biochemistry. There are a number of ways to get very elaborate about doing this, but generally speaking, it isn’t that complicated. There are three tools I use to to get a fairly accurate picture of what is going on “in there” and then make some simple recommendations about what you specifically should avoid, and what foods you should take advantage of.
Three Nutrition Tools
1) Health History
2) Five Day Food Journal
3) Nutri-Q Nutritional Questionnaire
With these three simple tools, I can make an accurate assessment of how you are doing nutritionally and prepare a written summary to help guide you in the right direction.
Is There More We Can Do?
Absolutely, but if you would like a quick “snapshot” of where you’re at, what to do, and how to do it, then this is the fastest and most economical way to go. If you would like to talk about it, and dig deeper, we can make arrangements to do that.
I am always concerned that most people want just a quick nutritional fix, and for the most part there is no such thing. You don’t spend years neglecting and abusing your body, end up with gout, and expect in a week or two, or even a month or two, to right all wrongs. It takes effort, focus, and discipline. But EVERY journey starts with a first step.
* Are You Ready To Take The First Step?
Perfect. Shoot me an email with “health history/written summary” in the subject line, and I will email the health history form back to you. When you get it, fill out it out (online) and email it back to me. When I get it, I will review it and let you know if I think I can help you. I will also send an invoice (Paypal) you can pay with your credit card. When it is paid, I will then send you the 5 Day Food Journal to work on and also the invitation to the Nutri-Q. (NAQ)
The 5 Day Food Journal can be filled in online and emailed back to me. What you are eating, when you are eating, what you are drinking and how much of it is water, is critical data for understanding your gout predicament. Also, your thoughts/moods/feelings in relationship to your foods is a big piece of the puzzle. AND . . . how well is that food being eliminated tells us volumes about how well your body is USING the foods you eat.
The NAQ is a very comprehensive questionnaire that will take you about 30 to 45 minutes to complete. It is then processed through a very robust piece of software that gives us several reports of findings that document your nutritional status – at this time. We will then have a better picture of:
- How your GI tract is working
- Your vitamin and mineral needs
- How dysregulated your blood sugar is
- If you are fatty acid deficient
- How you are doing hormonally (adrenal, thyroid, pituitary)
- The status of your reproductive organs/systems
- What’s going on with your cardiovascular system
- Your kidneys and bladder
- And your immune system
These three tools provide a mountain of information. It takes me at least two to three hours to digest it, interpret it, and give you a documented summary of where you are at and what you should do.
This is a tremendous value for $99.
Lifestyle and Diet
My summary with be in layman’s terms, very easy for you to understand, and then put it all into practice. I will make lifestyle recommendations and dietary suggestions based on all of the information compiled from your past history, your current eating habits, and the enormously valuable information provided by the NAQ about the state of your organs and body systems.

“What Are My Other Options?”
Unfortunately, I can only afford to do the Assessment & Written Summary at the $99 low price because we will have no email or verbal interaction. I have provided other packages to include options with more personal interaction. Also, I have a per hour rate for ongoing email or phone consultation if you would like to dig deeper.
- Nutritional Coaching / Consulting p/hour – $100
- Assessment, Written Summary, and 1.5 Hour Consultation – $249
- Assessment, Written Summary, and Three 1/2 Hour Consultations – $299
- 6 Month Nutrition Package – (24 Sessions, Weekly, 1/2 hour) – p/mo = $195, PP = $865
- 6 Month Nutrition Package – (12 Sessions, Bi-monthly, 1 hour) – p/mo = $145, PP = $720
