Nutrition Consultations


Sessions for Individuals and Families



Hello! My name is Sally Hammer and I am the owner and operator of Nourished Roots. I am a credentialed Registered Dietitian with additional training in Adult Weight Management as well as “Holistic” or Integrative and Functional Nutrition.

Initial Nutrition Consultations

Whether meeting virtually or in person, consultations take on the same format. Our first session together generally runs for an hour, and follow-ups are 45 minutes thereafter. During this time we’ll get to know each other; I like to get a good sense of a person’s current lifestyle, medical history, and goals. From there we work together through nutrition interventions and health coaching at a pace that works for you, generally meeting once every two weeks. At the end of each consultation, we’ll establish clear and achievable goals, or action steps, for you to work on in between sessions. These goals help us track your progression and make healthy lifestyle changes seem natural.

Dive Deeper With Functional Nutrition

After laying this foundation, we’ll then dive deeper into some of the more complex health concerns you may have. This is where my integrative and functional training comes into play. Some examples of this are Nutrigenomics (the study of nutrition’s impact on gene expression), micronutrient testing (checking cell-level deficiencies in vitamins and minerals), and analysis of a person’s specific gut bacteria/yeast to understand digestive issues, immune system function, and even mental health. I work with each individual to figure out the appropriate testing and nutrition interventions. I believe in a “food first approach,” but might also recommend reputable nutrition supplements that assist in achieving optimal health.

Part of my work occurs “behind the scenes” as I connect with labs, evaluate lab test results prior to the consultation, write reports for the client, research, and prepare personalized strategies along the way. On the client-facing side, I’ll engage through scheduled consultations and follow-up emails and calls to guide and fine-tune the process.

Tip of the Day

Gluten is a protein that is found in the grains wheat, rye, and barley. People living with celiac disease cannot eat gluten at all, even in the tiniest amounts, as it destroys their intestinal wall. This damage can prevent people from absorbing nutrients into their bodies. Other people may have non-celiac gluten sensitivity in which the body responds poorly to gluten. This can lead to gaps in the intestinal lining that allow larger food molecules and organisms like bacteria to leak into the bloodstream. Keep in mind a gluten-free diet is not necessarily a “weight loss” or “healthy” diet but can be therapeutic if indicated. There are many ways to test for celiac and gluten sensitivities; talk with Sally today for more information.
