Functional Health Coaching with Jennifer Blau

Functional Health Coaching is all about help. Help with accountability, help with tackling new habits, and help when you falter and veer off course. If you’ve ever wanted someone to guide you as you navigate through your health journey, then you need a health coach!

Ok, so you have decided to take your health and your wellbeing more seriously. You are fed up with your old unhealthy habits, you are stuck and don’t know where else to turn, and you’re ready for a change.

But you’re scared. You are frightened. What if I fail at this just like I did the last time I tried the latest health trend (insert any crazy, or even not so crazy healthy diet)? What if I am doomed to deal with (insert your main health complaint) for the rest of my life because no one can figure this out. Well, you don’t have to do it alone, and you do have someone who has been there and can help, not through guesswork, but through health detective work.

Food Elimination Diet Program

6 week guided elimination diet by Dietitian and Functional Health Coach. If you’re suffering from common inflammatory symptoms such as skin problems (Acne, eczema, psoriasis), GI issues, joint pain, fatigue, brain fog, headaches among many others you may benefit from this program. As the gold standard, if done correctly, an elimination diet is a great way to identify food sensitivities without doing in-depth testing which can become expensive.

Who this program is for: those who suspect certain foods may be linked to their symptoms but aren’t sure what the correct steps to take are. Who it’s not for: anyone with severe chronic illness who may benefit from additional testing.

Learn More About Functional Health Coaching

Do you ever think how much you would love to have someone walk by your side as you navigate your way in your health journey? Do you just know you are the type of person who needs some hand-holding and accountability when it comes to making changes, particularly when it comes to lifestyle and habit changes?

Who is Health Coaching For?

Health Coaching is for those who REALLY want to make healthy changes and REALLY want to make it stick. Some of the benefits of health coaching include:
  • Help you Set SMART Goals: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time-bound goals.
  • Retrain the way you Think: Health coaches help clients establish positive self-talk, by identifying and correcting negative, erroneous, unproductive beliefs.
  • Overcome Barriers: A health coach can help you overcome internal and external barriers that are preventing you from achieving good health. Not enough time, too much on your plate, not enough resources, these are all barriers that a person may face, barriers which a health coach will help you with and help you work around.
  • Take Ownership: A health coach will empower you to take ownership of your experience and create positive, lasting lifestyle changes that will enhance your life and your journey toward health and wellness.

Functional Health Coaching differs from traditional health coaching in that:

  • I utilize a number of personal health questionnaires to assess where you are currently in terms of your health.
  • Based on your main complaints, your symptoms, and a detailed background of your health history, I recommend and come up with an individual protocol that is tailored to YOU.
  • We will review the protocol and work through it TOGETHER. We will work on Diet, Rest, Exercize, Stress Reduction, and Supplements, the foundation of my work as a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner.

I have been there too! I have struggled with hormonal problems, lack of libido, thyroid issues, weight loss resistance, and intense fatigue. And guess what – I have worked with, and helped, clients, struggling with these same issues. I am here to help you, and that’s why you found me. Let’s get started!

How does functional health coaching differ from standard health coaching?

As a trained FDN, Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner, Jennifer is trained to look and the body and mind holistically. A deep health history is integral to functional health coaching, as well as an investigating and addressing the five pillars of health: Diet, Rest, Exercise, Stress Reduction, and Supplements (the foundation of the FDN coursework).

A deep health history is integral to functional health coaching, as well as investigating and addressing the five pillars of health: Diet, Rest, Exercise, Stress Reduction, and Supplements (the foundation of her FDN coursework).

In addition, functional health coaching means always looking upstream for the root cause of symptoms. As an example, the headache does not mean you have a deficiency of Tylenol or aspirin, it means your body is telling you something is off, and you need to address it. Searching upstream means a person’s health history, as well as addressing stress in one’s life, are critical. It also means that working together with a client, and teaching them and educating them on their health such that they feel empowered to take control of their health themselves alongside me as their guide.

It's no secret that the root cause of a lot of the illness we experience is due to being STUCK in fight or flight. Chronic inflammation thrives in fight or flight. Rather than treating this with a band-aide, we here at Vibrant Nourished Life look to holistically heal from the inside out. Our bodies are meant to be able to heal themselves, we just need to provide the right environment to do so! ⁠⠀

Like the caterpillar, you have to let go of what you are if you are to become a beautiful butterfly⠀
We enter this world with infinite potential, and somewhere along the journey, we start holding ourselves back. But its not too late.. ⠀
When we let go of our stories and limitations, we open up the potential of becoming the best versions of ourselves.

All calories are not created equal! ⠀
If you are keeping track of calories for weight reasons, stay aware of the "type" of calories you are taking in. Processed food is less likely to give you the feeling of being full. Lack of nutrient density as well as lack of fiber tricks our bodies. Avoid empty calories, and be on the look out to avoid high calorie low nutrient food. ⠀

The right type of exercise for you is the exercise you LIKE to do! Moving your body is essential to health. I encourage you to get out and try something new today.
Balance is the key to everything. What we do, say, think, eat, feel all require awareness and through this awareness we can grow. .

Dining out can be difficult for the simple fact that you don’t really know all that goes into your food. What kind of oils are they using? Is the food organic? As much as I enjoy living and choosing healthy, I definitely don’t want to give up eating out sometimes! So, what’s the solution?
Choose healthy restaurants that tell you where they get their food. Locally sourced food is likely to be packed with more nutrients, as it hasn’t been sitting on a shelf or truck for months before it reaches your plate. Salads are a great option, but be mindful of what goes on there! Ask to add on good healthy veggies and take away all the junk and substitute the dressing if needed!
Kale salads are my FAVORITE! The average American gets less than a 1/2 cup of kale in their diet PER YEAR!! I challenge you to MIX IT UP this week and try a new dark leafy green lettuce. What’s your favorite salad?! Let us know in the comments below!!

Nutrient deficiencies are incredibly common, and it can add up to diseases and lost vitality in your body. Dietary supplements can be extremely helpful, and not so much as a replacement to a healthy diet, but as additional insurance. Check out our page vnl.life to learn more about the missing link between deficiencies and living your best, healthiest life.

A vegan, oil free twist on a classic! Vegetable "Unfried" Rice! This is a great way to utilize leftover rice and veggies. ⁠⠀
Fun Fact: In medieval times, people wore garlic around their necks to ward off werewolves. These days, garlic is used to fight off diseases like the modern day werewolf, cancer. “In a test tube study measuring the anticancer properties of a number of vegetables, garlic was the most effective.” (Eating on the wild side). I personally add garlic to just about every dish I make, due to its “anti” properties such as antioxidant, antibacterial, antiviral, anti clotting, and anticancer. ⁠

Ingredients:⁠⠀
1 TBS Tahini⁠⠀
2 TBS liquid aminos (this is a no salt added substitute for soy sauce, Braggs Liquid Aminos)⁠⠀
1 teaspoon rice vinegar ⁠⠀
¼-1/2 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)⁠⠀
1 red onion, finely chopped⁠⠀
1 large carrot, peeled into slices⁠⠀
2 cups broccoli florets ⁠⠀
2 garlic cloves, minced (add more to your liking)⁠⠀
3 cups brown rice ⁠⠀
A pinch of cilantro⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Begin by getting the brown rice started if it’s not already cooked. Then, combine the liquid aminos, tahini, vinegar, and red pepper flakes in a small bowl. Stir in ¼ cup of water and set aside. ⁠⠀
Heat ¼ cup of water in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add the onion and carrot, and cook until softened. About 5 minutes. Add in the broccoli and garlic and cook for about 4 more minutes, continuing to stir. Add the rice, and stir until hot and well combined! Additionally, feel free to add as much cilantro as you personally enjoy. For my family, we add about a handful to each plate! Enjoy! ⁠⠀
