WHY A LIVING BALANCE?
What to expect:
The majority of my clients are feeling fatigued, in pain, overweight, and would like to cut back on their prescription medications. In short, they’re feeling pretty horrible and have not been able to find the help they need. Important questions have not been asked. Thorough blood work has not been done and looking for what is behind the symptoms or the root cause has been ignored.
Doctors often don’t have the time to do a deep dive into your diet, lifestyle, sleep, poops, stress, and digestion. When was the last time your doctor asked you about your poops? And to be fair, most of them do not have the time to stay on top of new breakthroughs other than the latest drug or procedure. It’s just how our medical system works.
As a Functional Medicine practitioner, I’m trained to go deep and spend time staying on top of the latest literature and science as it pertains to chronic disease which makes up 90% of doctor ‘s visits and ultimately why my clients end up coming to me seeking help.
I view each person as a unique individual with specific needs. I see the body as a whole entity that needs to be teased and touched on every sensory level to keep the mind, body, and spirit integrated and healthy.
Healing from the root cause is a process and partnership between patient and practitioner. My clients are closely listened to with compassion as well as experience.
We begin your healing process with an Initial Consultation. The main purpose of an initial consultation is to get to know you and to understand what you’d like to improve. We’ll talk about your history, where you are right now, and your goals. My job is to listen and then together we build a solid plan to help you to achieve these goals.
Initial consultations take between 1 hour to 1 1/2 hours of face time with additional time to evaluate lab work and design a protocol specific to your needs. Total time spent on an initial consultation is approximately 2.5 hours.
The services I provide are meant to be used in conjunction with the care you receive from your doctor.
I work with my clients at my Irvine office as well as virtually using Zoom or phone.
I’ve recently expanded my practice to include Preconception, Prenatal, and Postpartum care. I’m here to help you optimize your health prior, during and after pregnancy to give baby a wonderful start.
A little about Cindy Dupuie, CN Functional Medicine Nutritionist and founder of A Living Balance:
I’m a certified Nutritionist with a degree in Dietetics and Food Administration from Cal State Long Beach and have completed many advanced courses from the Institute of Functional Medicine. I’m a current member of The Institute of Functional Medicine and IAACN.
I had my own healing crisis in 2002, precipitated by a divorce which contributed to adrenal fatigue and a very compromised digestive system, including leaky gut. After giving up hope of being helped by western medicine, I learned to heal myself using the Functional Medicine, root cause approach. My own health crisis has enabled me to better understand and help my clients.
I’m also a certified yoga instructor, passionate about creating and exposing others to tasty-nourishing food, a blogger, lecturer, and a mother of two wonderful grown sons and a grandma!
I look forward to helping you feel good, happy, healthy, and vital so you can to do the things you love, including becoming a mom or dad.
I’m available for group lectures, workshops, and webinars. Cooking demonstrations are also available. Please inquire
