IBS Relief

You don’t need to suffer. Let’s get back to normal.

Does any of this sound familiar?

  • I always need to know where the bathroom is. If I’m not sure, I might stay home or avoid eating before going out.
  • By the end of the day – or kinda randomly – I get so bloated and uncomfortable. I’ve eliminated a few things that seem to trigger me, but it keeps happening.
  • My doctor/naturopath suggested something, and it kind of worked, but I need a long-term, sustainable plan to help me feel normal.

What if…

  • You could feel normal again. Go out looking good, travel, and visit restaurants with confidence that you’ll feel good the next day. Do everything you want to do without fear of triggers or symptoms.
  • Have a step-by-step plan to eliminate symptoms and fully live your life.
  • Access to a coach to guide and cheer you along the way.
  • IBS no longer holds you back.

All of that is possible with Individual Nutrition Counselling

Meet Your Dietitian

 

Hi, I’m Nicole.

Over the past few years, people with IBS have begun to work with me to feel normal again. It’s so exciting to hear when clients report back that their symptoms are improving, or even completely gone.

You deserve to feel normal, and fully embrace life’s joys and opportunities.

I have 10 years experience in nutrition counselling for individuals, and a powerful toolbox of strategies I’ve seen work very effectively in my clients with IBS.

I get that it can be challenging to navigate the health care system, and to know who or what to trust. See a sample story below.

 

Earlier this year, I felt bloated, tired, and unhappy with my body. I was on a rollercoaster of symptoms, on and off the toilet. My cravings for sweets like ice cream were a problem that had to be satisfied, but sweets and other unknown triggers caused some pretty uncomfortable symptoms. Plus, I had gained a little weight and thought I should try to get back to my normal. But when I tried to lose last year, it was so hard.

So my husband and I booked a nutrition counselling package with Nicole. She listened, then educated us on our nutrition needs. We started by adjusting our meal sizes and timing to provide more steady energy through the day. Plus, we quickly started implementing the meal planning resources. The low-FODMAP meal plans were an easy way to get started with improving our nutrition choices, and my family enjoyed most of the recipes.

As we kept working with Nicole, I also started to understand my cravings better and worked out some other ways to cope with my emotions.

Now, I feel well. Having no more digestive symptoms has been awesome and a real change in terms of energy. Also, my weight has stabilized, and I have far fewer cravings. Recently, I was able to go on vacation with my family and enjoy delicious food while also keeping our healthy habits. I feel confident I’ll be able to keep eating in a smart way. And if anything changes in my health or lifestyle, I know Nicole is just a call or email away. A sample story, inspired by real clients. Could this be you?

Frequently Asked Questions

Will my health insurance cover this?
Many people have coverage for Registered Dietitian services through their extended health benefits, but every plan is different. So please check with your plan administrator’s for the details of your coverage.

You may find Registered Dietitians listed with Chiropractors and Massage Therapists as one of types of HEALTH PRACTIONERS or Providers covered by your plan. There are ordinarily limits to this coverage, such as a total amount per year and/or a maximum amount per visit. To avoid surprizes, we recommend understanding those limits ahead of time.

Nutrition Counselling with us may also be an eligible expense for any FLEXIBLE health or wellness spending accounts you may have though your workplace. Others have used workplace-sponsored personal development funds, as well.

If you have any kind of coverage, let us know. While we won’t direct bill your plan, we will do our best to ensure you get all the services you’re covered for, and provide detailed reciepts in support of your claims.

And if your coverage doesn’t reimburse you for 100% of the cost of your nutrition counselling, Canada Revenue Agency recognizes any out-of-pocket costs as eligible medical expenses for income tax deduction purposes. Save your receipts!

Are there payment plans available?
Yes. If you want to work with Eatwell for more than a month, but would rather pay in monthly installments rather than all at once, let us know. We’ll set up a monthly payment for the length of your plan.
Where do we meet?

Short answer: In person in Regina or online.

After selecting a day and time for your first visit, you’ll be invited to meet in person with Nicole at her home office. It’s in north-west Regina, and that address is shared in your confirmation email.

If you live outside Regina, or would find it more convenient not to drive to your followup appointments, we also have the option of using a secure video chat platform. No downloads needed.

When are appointments available? Can I book evenings and weekends?

 We’ve found weekday evenings work well for most people, and will almost always have a few of these available. Daytime appointments can also be arranged. 

When you’re ready to book your appointment, an online calendar shows availability.

Can’t find a time that works for you? Email us your availability, and we may find some hidden options. 

Should I bring anything?
Intake forms and payment are typically handled ahead of your first visit, all online or by phone. So you really don’t need to bring anything other than a willingness to work together. Some clients will bring printouts of their food & activity journals, which is always welcome. If you’d like to take notes, we’ll provide paper and pens.
Can I bring someone with me?
Yes.

Boisterous kids are best left with someone who can give their full attention to childcare. And there’s no waiting room available for hangers-on, so please be thoughtful about who comes with you.

But a supportive person, like your spouse, parent, or adult child, is always welcome to listen in and contribute to the discussion – at your invitation.

JUST PLEASE GIVE NICOLE A HEADS UP FIRST.

Have a well-behaved child or driver you just have to bring along? While it’s not ideal, they’re also welcome. They’ll have to be in the room with us, and find ways to amuse themselves quietly for an hour or so.

What if I've finished my package, but still need support?
No problem. For clients who have worked with us within the last 6 months, extra followup appointments can be booked as needed. You might ask for just one or two more visits to adress a particular issue, or decide to commit to a regular monthly appointment for further growth and accountability beyond the initial package.
