"My mom is now in remission!!! And her metabolic panel has been looking much more normal than it was during chemo.
The absolute best part about working with Ginger is just who she is as a person. Her attitude is so positive and she has been such a cheerleader for my mom. We always feel better after a call with her because it feels like we're taking real steps to keep my mom healthy. Ginger meets us on our level, not pushing my mom to try foods that don't appeal to her or supplements we're hesitant about — instead, she helps us build a plan that fits our life but is still anti-cancer".

Answers to Common Questions:
FAQ 1: Do you take insurance?
I don't accept insurance at this time. I am committed to a comprehensive solution that leaves no stone unturned for all my clients. I accept clients who are ready to get creative with me and often, this often means moving beyond what insurance can cover. While I do not take insurance, I do accept health savings (HSA) and flexible spending accounts (FSA) and can provide you a superbill that you can submit to your insurance.
FAQ 2: What exactly is your "program"? Is it a meal plan or a diet plan?
Our work together is collaborative; you are the expert on YOU. People who are ready for change are the best fit for this action-oriented program. There is no one-size-fits-all diet or prescription; rather I partner with each client to create a unique plan just for them. We create meal plans together based on what you valiue, enjoy, like and dislike, your schedule...everything.
FAQ 3: Can I see you in person? Where's your office?
I'm located in the Seattle area and Katie is based in Florida, but we conduct visits over the phone or video conference, allowing for clients to be located anywhere on the globe. No traffic, no parking, total flexibility.
FAQ 4: Do you send pre-packaged food as part of your program?
No: we don't send you packaged food and that's not part of the program. You'll never be prescribed a shake, bar or meal replacement when you're with us! This is about real, whole food that improves your health. This is not a meal delivery service and there's no "special food" required to purchase or consume.
FAQ 4: How is this different than working with a hospital dietitian at my clinic?
Don't get me wrong - all dietitians are highly trained in nutrition and will be a great resource for you. I've been in the hospital and clinic setting which is why I eventually went out on my own. There are quotas that need to be met and many clinical workers see 10-20 patients per day. They are beholden to recommending the products their hospital or clinic is affiliated with. My clients often express frustration that they receive "generic" advice or are given a handout or brochure that's not particularly helpful. We can offer a much more in-depth, personalized approach for your care.
