Values Of Care
Root Cause Resolution
Unlike conventional nutritionists, our care team always focuses on getting to the root causes of your illness. We first help you heal from the inside out, and then empower you with the knowledge and the tools to avoid many of the pitfalls that created the illness in the first place! We also examine the key imbalances that are responsible for virtually all of the symptoms you’re experiencing right now.
Functional Nutrition is so effective because we focus on dealing with the "up-stream" catalyst of chronic illnesses – including toxicity in your home or work-place, potential food intolerances and allergies, gut & hormonal imbalances, along with brain health and mindset issues that all determine how healthy you are to date.
Changing your lifestyle may seem daunting, but we teach you how to use mindset tools to overcome stubborn habits that aren't serving you any longer. We make the prospect of getting healthy "fun" and have a wide range of tools in place to support you during your health transformation and beyond.
We also leverage your brain health through "Neurofeedback" so your new healing lifestyle practices can become an integral part of your everyday life. Our support is further offered through many online sources like cooking classes and a podcast to give you support and accountability remotely, as you make important changes that translate into lasting health.
Not only is each person biologically unique, but their illness is unique too. There are so many factors that may be to blame for your illness – from lifestyle choices, food choices, allergies and even toxins in your immediate environment... plus let's not forget about our brain health and mindset (which plays a big role of your health).
First we want to see if it's a good partnership. After all, it takes both parties working together! Then, we do an in-depth evaluation where we talk about your personalized plan. We then conduct specialized lab testing (that your current functional nutritionist may not even know about) to get the most in-depth picture of your health. The best part is that each and every appointment takes as long as you need it to!
Did you know that it takes on average 17 years for clinical breakthroughs to make their way into your conventional functional nutritionist's office? That means many health care practitioners are dispensing outdated advice and not using the best lab testing available for your case. Chances are they are not even aware of the proper testing that could make all the difference in your healing plan.
At Kay Spears, we are trained in up-to-date Neurofeedback, also known as EEG (electroencephalogram) biofeedback, which is a therapeutic intervention that provides immediate feedback from a computer-based program that assesses a client's brainwave activity. The program then uses sound or visual signals to reorganize or retrain these brain signals. With this technology, you can finally achieve your health goals .
About Kay Spears
Kay Spears is a renown Functional Nutritionist with a virtual practice and offices in San Antonio and Florida.
Kay has her Masters in Science and Nutrition from the University of Bridgeport in Bridgeport, Connecticut, and is a Certified Clinical Nutritionist. Kay is the author of Balanced Living: Seven Steps for a Healthy Body and Renewed Spirit, which is available on the website or on Amazon.
Kay has been in practice for almost 30 years and is well-known for her customized programs designed specifically for the individual, also known as Functional Nutrition. The root cause of her philosophy stems from The Father of Medicine:
“Let food be THY medicine and medicine be THY food.”
— Hippocrates (c. 460 bc-c. 375 bc)
“She has truly made a positive impact on my life and well-being, not just nutritionally but emotionally and spiritually as well! Thank you, Kay!!!”
Kay Spears is a one-of-a-kind nutritionist and a godsend! It is rare to find a practitioner who is so committed about the health and wellness of others. After suffering painful gallbladder attacks, thru her guidance, advice, support and encouragement she literally saved me from having gallbladder surgery and I am so thankful for her and her wonderful staff.
“In just 5 weeks, I feel so much better and will continue to work with her until I reach my goal weight. ”
After participating in Kay's 5 week challenge, I lost 25 lbs and 15.5 inches overall. The best part is that I was not hungry and did not experience cravings. She truly is the real deal. Kay is incredibly knowledgeable and wants to help you improve your health and quality of life without medication. She ultimately found issues that my functional nutritionist was unaware of. I can't recommend her enough.
“Kay and her staff are super and very much vested in her clients well being. Very very happy”
Neurofeedback is AMAZING! After my first session, the results were immediate. I suffer from anxiety/racing thoughts which my brain map immediately identfied. It was beautiful driving home, at mental peace. When i would get distracted, my thoughts would go back to the calm state without much effort. Its totally a game changer for me and would encourage anyone in therapy needing help with such a problem to consider this therapy.
