Disaster Prep Nutrition ConsultationNutrolution
Are you concerned about the threat of a disaster? Do you or a loved one have a medical condition which could be life-threatening in the case of an emergency? How will you can for yourself in the case that the medical system cannot help you?
It's never too early to prepare for a disaster, though it could be too late!
This is a specialized consultation in which we will learn about you and your medical and health concerns. We provide you a personalized survival nutrition plan which consists of a blend of functional foods and medically tailored meals and snacks, and what we can anticipate will be practical and possible. This plan is not the end all guide, but a beginning to help you think through, provide solutions such as certain foods and supplements you should stock ahead of time, and other goals you can work toward so that if and when disaster strikes, you will survive.
Note: The consultation will be provided by our registered and licensed nutritionist, Rachael Richardson. Why is Rachael qualified? She has been a licensed dietitian/nutritionist since 2001. Additionally, she trained as a licensed Emergency Medical Technician in 1999, and has saved two lives. As a dietitian, Rachael has worked in hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, nursing homes, and in preventative health and wellness settings. Prior to being a dietitian, she was a lifeguard, water safety instructor and soccer referee, so has always been focused on safety and security in a variety of settings. Rachael was part of a the Miami Jewish Home and Health Care center's medical, food and nutrition team during hurricane Wilma and also provided hurricane aid after hurricane Andrew. Rachael was also hired by the University of Miami Dining Department to develop a hurricane survival package for students. Additionally, Rachael was raised by her step-dad who retired as a Chief from Miami-Dade Fire Department, where he directed fire rescue for the entire South Florida coastline, as well as oversaw and was certified in many types of rescue teams (including diving underwater, snake rescue, and more). Learning how to survive a disaster is a great interest of Rachael's, and her background supports her ability and continued interest in helping others.
Please note: this consultation is geared directly toward food, nutrition and natural medicine, and not around other important supplies such as power, light, and other rescue aid.
