Because every person is unique and the cause (s) of each individual's health issue(s) may be multifaceted, I've developed consultation packages that utilize different depths of my clinical investigation skills depending on your need. During our discovery call, we will discuss your needs and the various lab panels that would be beneficial to help me look “under the hood” (ie, your cellular biochemistry, gut microbiome, &/or your genomics) to uncover the nutrition-related health issue(s) so that I can use the evidence based remedies to correct the not-so-healthy terrain or system(s). Through an active process you will be coached to re-build the “terrain” in your body to support your digestive function, sequester oxidative stress, manage inflammation, enable biotransformation (or detoxification) and ultimately streamline your biochemistry for your health transformation.

In my 30+ years of working with thousands of clients, I have found many parameters that separate clients into different levels of care. For example, someone with IBD may just have a food intolerance and need nutrition repletion and wellness is achieved. Whereas someone else who also has IBD may have severe candida overgrowth, a disruption in the HPA axis from the candida metabolites causing a disruption in the choline metabolism thereby blocking CCK production and preventing proper gut motility thereby causing SIBO and IBS symptoms, all which need to be addressed in order to achieve wellness. For this reason, after completing the initial gut package. I have additional time packages that you can select from if more time is needed. I've also found a level of attentiveness that separate clients into different levels of need. Some people need more reinforcement, skill-building, and monitoring, even after completing the initial package (s), thus packages exist for this as well.

I use a secure virtual office GetHealthie. This is a very easy, HIPPA secured electronic medical records platform. It requires a computer and a working camera on your computer. Also, there is a free GetHealthie App available to my clients who have a smartphone. This App allows us to message each other, shoot pictures of products, recipes, etc. Everything stays in your file which adds to the continuity of service.

I have advanced training in interpreting clinical labs (i.e., biomarkers** and genomics) and educating my clients on their lab values' high points. More importantly, I provide my client with effective strategies to positively change these lab values to promote organ reserve and optimize biochemical homeostasis.

**Advanced Training in Functional Medicine Interpretation of Blood Chemistry Markers in the Following Areas:

  • Anemia
  • Hemoglobin A1C, C-Peptide, and glucose monitoring
  • Lipoprotein Analysis and lipid panels
  • Organic Acids (Urine)
  • Sex Hormones and their downstream Metabolites (saliva, urine, and/or blood)
  • Thyroid—full panel with autoantibodies
  • Predictive Autoantibodies
  • Micronutrients (intercellular as well as serum)
  • Mitochondria
  • Reactive Oxygen Species
  • Acid-Base
  • Biotransformation/ Detoxification
  • Hydration
  • Infections
  • Inflammation and Cell Damage
  • Para-cellular vs. Trans-cellular Intestinal Antigenic Permeability
  • SIBO (Small Intestinal Bowel Overgrowth and whether it is methane, hydrogen, or hydrogen sulfide)

For 30 years, I have customized health promotion programs for small organizations (500 employees) to fortune 500 companies (see below).

My end goal for each corporation is to grow a wellness culture into the organization's population for the organization to gain the maximum return on investment (ROI) for the wellness program. An effective wellness program's ROI is that for every dollar spend on employee wellness, medical costs fall $3.27, and absenteeism drops $2.73, a 6-to-1 ROI.

In addition, growing an organization's wellness culture enhances the employee's presenteeism.

I work with the organization's administrators, HR, or wellness department to analyze the company's employee population's health risk and then design and provide Lifestyle Preventative Management Programs (LPMP). LPMP is designed to track transparent health outcomes. Programs are designed around an organization's needs, budget, and logistical limitations.

**LPMP involves health risk assessments, clinical laboratory work, preventative clinical coaching using a 21st-century evidence-based lifestyle medicine model, functional nutrition consumer-directed solutions, and web tools, all targeting employees with engagement strategies that meet the employee within his or her stage of readiness-to-change.

Diana is set to launch her community-based program, FAME Program (Food As Medicine Experience), with various chefs. FAME program is designed (in partnership with local restaurants and grocery stores) to bring culinary medicine recipes using seasonable and sustainable foods to meet the populace's growing interests who choose to use food as medicine as their mainstay way of eating. Each recipe is designed within a therapeutic meal platform such as (i.e., Plant-based, Traditional Mediterranean, Ketogenic, Specific Carbohydrates, etc.) yet uses ingredients that are scientifically known to activate our master genes (activate NRF2, SIRT1 and downregulate NKFb).

FAME recipes are designed to create culinary magic while creating metabolic peace in your biochemistry.
