We are all different. I take an individualized and holistic approach to guide and support you in a wide range of issues, to feel your best, and to age well.
Many conditions and symptoms are blamed on aging. If we can look beyond this cultural belief, dis - ease is a combination of our food and lifestyle choices, environmental aspects including toxins, and emotional factors. There is much you can do to experience vibrant health at every age, and in our world today a proactive approach to our health is essential for well being and longevity.
Take a natural and holistic approach to issues such as:
Insulin/Sugar Handling Problems
Reproductive Or Fertility Issues
One of the most common reasons someone is searching for a Nutritionist is to lose weight.
Studies are clear that diets do not work, and usually result in even more weight gain. If the old paradigm of "calories in vs. calories out" was all there was to lasting weight loss we would not have the obesity epidemic that exists in North America.
My approach to food and/or weight addresses the quality of food you eat which is different than the old paradigm of simply counting calories. 100 calories of broccoli and 100 calories of Coke are not assimilated the same by your body! I work with you to identify which foods help you thrive and nourish you, and those to which you may be having reactions such as inflammation or gut issues. But avoiding food sensitivies is often not the root issue. We look deeper and heal why the sensitiviy has developed. Often, these foods can be reintroduced.
Weight loss becomes a side effect of improving your health. As your body returns to balance, it will naturally find your individual set point.
We will also explore and shift the underlying reasons or beliefs behind any behaviours that aren't supporting you and your goals. This is what creates lasting change in weight loss.
Health | Wellness | Detoxification
Nutrition & wellness go hand in hand. Health issues far beyond one's weight are impacted by our food choices, including:
Every food we choose is information to our genes and our cells, not simply calories. Symptoms are our bodies' ways of talking to us. Wellness sessions help you figure out what your body is telling you, and more importantly, for what it is asking.
RDA’s (recommended daily allowances) are based on the minimum amount of a nutrient required to sustain life, not on the optimum amount to achieve your peak health. Do you want to survive, or thrive?
Did you know that in times of stress your body uses and requires much higher amounts of specific nutrients? Most of us rate our stress levels fairly high, and often are in a chronic state of stress that we start to consider normal. Stress can come in many forms, many of which we wouldn't even think of as stress, but our bodies do. For example, when we are fighting infection our bodies need up to 10 times the typical amount of Vitamin C. Statin drugs (cholesterol lowering drugs) deplete the body of the vital nutrient Coenzyme Q10. These are just a couple of scenarios in which the RDA falls short of providing what we need for optimal health.
Again, symptoms are the way your body talks to you. My Wellness Sessions help you decipher these messages and identify how and what your body needs to restore physiology and health.
The Genius Insight Quantum Biofeedback Software is used during all wellness sessions for my assessment purposes only. This is a valuable tool to get to the root of your issues and make the most of our time together.
