"Hello Pamela, I want to thank you for meeting with me today and spending your time, energy, expertise, skill and thoughts toward helping me. I am very pleased with the appointment and how informative and practical it was. I look forward to working with you and I appreciate you!"
"Good morning, Pamela! I wanted to communicate to you, again, my appreciation for you and all of the amazing help you are giving me. I am feeling so much better, better than I have in 24 years! The "bad" days are not nearly as bad and so many more good days full of energy, motivation, joy and a positive outlook. I know I have more work to do, but I am super encouraged about the direction we are going with my health. Thank you so very much! You are the best! The Beta TCP is totally working and the gall bladder aching is gone now. I was taking 3 tablets per meal over the weekend and no more aching. I am trying 2 tablets per meal today to see how that feels.
Taking the PMS support and the Gaba Ease is a great combination and I feel so much calmer and able to respond better to pressured situations. I also really like the Vitamin E suppositories - they work great! Cutting out the estrodial cream was a wonderful relief on my body and emotions last week. I am looking forward to trying that again when my next crazy first of the month comes on. I am expecting it to not be so crazy anymore. You are helping my plagues and sufferings so much. They have gone on for such a long time. You are such an answer to my prayers! Just wanted you share my continued success with the direction and supplements you are so skillfully applying to my health. I am loving it! Have a beautiful day!"
"What a wonderful informative class you held on Monday. I am amazed at how I never stop learning in your presence. The food was delicious, especially the Burdock root salad. Yummy! I am looing forward to the next class. I plan on making time in my schedule so that I can continue this investment in good health. Thank you, Pam. You are the best!!!!"
"The Genetic Nutritional Assessment Report has been very eye-opening for me and has given me the answers I’ve been searching for. I really never expected to see physical improvements at my age, but I have! Since beginning the program, I have seen a steady decline in my inflammation and weight, and I have more energy than ever."
"Pamela, you are great at what you do! I lost nine pounds in about a month period. Now I'm at my optimal weight and ready to ride. You're worth every cent. I could have spent more money on diet books and still not had a clue. You took all the guesswork out of it."
"I attended your class at Whole Foods last night. Just wanted to let you know, the food was delicious!! Other than the burdock (a new one for me), I have everything on hand to make the recipes. I love that!! Transitioning to no ice in my smoothie this morning. Thank you for the helpful information."
"Candice Ward and I attended a great Raw Foods "cooking" class (Backyard BBQ ya'll!) last night with Pamela Spencer-Nutritionist at the the helm. Being "talked at" about making change is one thing - to actually have a method for making change "hand-delivered" to you in an attractive package that makes it easy, practical, fun and anicipatory (is that a word?) - now THAT is life changing. I think you all can consider me hooked on these classes. :-)"
"Hi Pamela, WOW, I never had such a comprehensive trip to a grocery store in all of my 67 years. That old saying is just not true-you can teach an old dog new tricks! _ You just need the right expert to be the trainer (you). Thanks so very much for sharing your excellent knowledge of nutrition and making it practical for my everyday living. Thinking Healthy Thoughts!"
Had an appointment with Pamela Connor today and I was more than pleased with the experience. Staff was super nice and warm! Pamela took the time to really listen to my symptoms and concerns. And I really liked the fact that she aims to get down to the root problem of the issues you may be having. One thing I really loved about her was that she shows genuine concern for your well being and educates you about your health in a very compassionate and positive manner. I'm really looking forward to getting my health back with [her] help.
"I feel FANTASIC! I weighed in this morning at 164 which means I've lost 7 lbs since I started 1/7 (about 3 this week). I think adding the Triplefiber along with tea did the trick! I also did 2 days on the elliptical this week and I'm sure that helped. Met a friend at Benihana last night and ordered a fresh salad with shrimp, no dressing, it was delicious! I can't believe I've lost like 35 lbs total!!!! Boy do I need to go shopping. For Super Bowl I'm having shrimp and kale/radish chips. My how my life has changed, thanks to you. :-)"
"Pamela, Thank you, thank you, thank you for all of your support!!!! Today I hit my personal goal, I wanted to lose at least 10 lbs. this time around on the diet and as of this morning I am down 11 (and I still have another week to go) !!!!! Not to mention that brings my total lbs. lost to about 40, I can't even believe it. I weighed in this morning at 160 and when I started working with you I was approaching 200. AMAZING!!! I feel fantastic! I cleared out my closet and I'm ready to go shopping. :-)"
"Pamela is a wise and compassionate practitioner, who encouraged me every step of the way. She sought out the reason for my obesity instead of just assuming that I consumed too much "junk food." The results of those tests and Pamela's expertise in food and nutrition are the cornerstones in which she built a food plan that works with my body, not against it. This journey has taught me that there is no one eating plan for everyone. My advice to everyone who "suffers" from chronic health issues and/or weight issues is a consultation with Pamela."
"Pamela Spencer is your Sacramento area nutritionist. She combines an in-depth knowledge of the data with empathy that really enables her to resonate with her clients. Pamela is also great on the platform in front of groups. Combine that with fact she walks her talk, sets a great example, and you have an effective professional who gets results."
Yes! We help people all across the country! We use phone or video calls for our virtual appointments. Lab work, if needed can be done in your local area, with results sent to us.
Currently, insurance companies do not cover a nutritionist in private practice. However, we do take flex spending and HSA accounts. And, many of the tests we use are covered.
I am a wounded healer. At a young age my health was impacted by the Standard American Diet and this went on for several years. When it became clear to me that the doctors I sought out for healing were unable to heal, but were able to prescribe meds that didn’t work and came with many unwanted side effects. This started my journey towards understanding how the body works and what the body needs to heal and maintain optimal health. My health was restored and now I spend my life helping others get there health back.
Infrared therapy is completely safe and healthy for all living things. Infrared energy warms the body in the same manner as natural sunlight but does not contain the harmful UV rays associated with unprotected sunlight. Tests have shown that the energy output is tuned so closely to the body’s own radiant energy that our bodies absorb as much as 93% of the far infrared waves that reach our skin.
You’ll complete a comprehensive health history form and send us copies of labs completed. This will allow Pamela to be prepared for you when you arrive.
During your evaluation a live blood cell analysis will be preformed and this information will be used to establish your nutritional deficiencies and
where your health needs to be supported.
Functional Nutrition is a leading-edge, evidence-based, and comprehensive approach to client/patient care that focuses on identifying root causes and system imbalances to significantly improve patient health outcomes and bring your bodies health back into balance.
Follow up visits will vary from patient to patient based on the reason he/she came in the office in the first place. With that said, with each patient progress will be evaluated with each appointment.
A Holistic Nutritionist is not a legal designation but an approach to how a nutritionist practices. I am a licensed nutritionist that takes a holistic, yet clinical approach towards bringing the body back into balance.
There is a pretty big difference. The supplement industry is unregulated so anyone can package anything and sell it with a claim, meanwhile it may not have the stated ingredients in the package at all. Practitioners use manufacturers that provide us with lab assays that verify the potency, purity, and efficacy of the product. This is valued in my industry since practitioners are in the business of helping their patients bring the health back in to balance or assisting in the healing process.
Results will vary, but results are seen by ALL patients that comply with recommendations that are suggested in making the necessary nutrition and lifestyle changes.
This work is not a quick fix. It is not a crash diet, but rather a way of life. Individuals who are looking for a quick fix, or are not willing to follow through long-term, will not have good results. This approach is not suited for people who are ambivalent about making health a priority in their lives.
