bēkn bridges the gap between clinical nutrition, functional medicine, holistic lifestyle coaching and personal training.
Building Health from the inside out
The foundation of bēkn is grounded in the belief that true wellness is driven by a myriad of internal and external factors. This means that achieving healthiness in our lives requires a more holistic, balanced approach than the engrained practice of purely treating physical symptoms. Unlike traditional medicine, bēkn assesses the impact of all factors, internal and external, on one’s health and, through the use of state-of-the-art lab testing, delivers tailored wellness programs and lifestyle coaching that allows people to achieve lasting health and happiness - physically, mentally AND emotionally.
What is Functional Diagnostic Nutrition?
Functional Diagnostic Nutrition (FDN) is a type of "detective work" that seeks to identify the underlying causes of disease instead of treating symptoms. Using functional lab work, Casey identifies healing opportunities and engages each client in a health building process using the potent, proven, professional protocols in her D.R.E.S.S. for Health Success program. This includes Diet, Rest, Exercise, Supplements and Stress Reduction. This natural, holistic approach yields the highest level of positive clinical outcomes. Casey's coaching philosophy is education before medication.
How Does bēkn coaching work?
1. COMPLETE HEALTH EVALUATION
During our initial meetings, we will discuss your health history, along with your current health complaints, wellness goals, nutrition, and any current medications and supplements you are taking. These are in-depth discussions, so you are urged to spend some time prior to our meetings making a list of questions, concerns, and observations concerning your health. I consider all information pertinent to your health, so the more detailed you can be the better.
Based on our discussions, I will recommend certain functional lab testing, which may include saliva, urine, hair, blood, or stool samples. Most lab samples are very easy to obtain and are completed in the convenience of your own home. The lab results will provide us with a current and thorough assessment of how various systems in your body are functioning.
2. CUSTOM TAILORED PLANS
After you have completed the recommended lab testing, I will create a comprehensive analysis of the results. These results will reveal the biochemical and metabolic imbalances that are behind your current health complaints. I will also tailor a program to address these imbalances that may include education pertaining to natural and botanical supplements and remedies, as well as lifestyle factors such as stress management, diet, sleep, appropriate exercise, and adequate hydration.
3. INVESTING IN RELATIONSHIPS
Due to the unique nature of each client’s underlying health issues, there is no preset length of time we will need to work together, but do expect to work closely with me for a minimum of 4 months. My approach is built on a foundation of shared commitment between client and practitioner. I will be with you each step of the way to encourage you, track your progress, focus your efforts, and empower you with the latest tools and information so you can make informed lifestyle choices and take an active role in your future health.
