- CREATING NOURISHMENT THAT WORKS FOR YOU -
My intention is to share with you how to take your health into your own hands, to nourish your body, and optimize your wellbeing - all to inspire you to become the driver of your own wellness journey. I'm in this to make a difference; to help you build a healthy lifestyle that not only serves you, but one that you truly love.
1. Quality over Quantity.
Let's get one thing straight - food is a powerful medicine, not numbers to be calculated. So forget headaching over counting points, calories, or grams of [insert exhausting equation]. Because it's not about eating less; it’s about nourishing more. Select foods and products that are closest to nature; keep it real, fresh and authentic - local, seasonal, and organic - whenever possible. Simply put - if nature made it, eat it. If man made it, leave it. Unprocessed, whole foods provide more nutrients than processed, packaged foods. End of story.
"What most people don't know is that food is not just calories; it's information. It actually contains messages that communicate to every cell in our body. Our gene expression, our hormones, our immune system, our gut flora, our brain chemistry, our muscle mass, our metabolism and more are all changed with every single bite of food.”
2. One Size Does NOT Fit All.
This is where trends, fads, and diets go out the window. General health recommendations don’t always work, and people need to use bio-individuality to find what works for them. Bio-individuality means that no one diet works for everyone. Each and every person has unique needs.
Most people struggle with their health because they lack a personal approach that meets their individual needs, or worse, they try to follow a plan that's not designed for them.
Your health (and health goals) are unique to you, which is why you need realistic strategies designed specifically for you, and contour to your bio-indivudal needs, personal preferences, and to your busy life.
3. Holistic Health and Functional Wellness
Investigative - finds and addresses the underlying causes of symptoms, producing longer, lasting healthier outcomes.
Holistic. Treats the body as an interconnected whole, and recognizes the importance of these connections in health and disease.
Restorative - designed to promote optimal function, prevent and reverse disease, and improve quality of life.
Personalized. Highly tailored to you and your needs.
A Team Effort. The client is respected, empowered, educated, and encouraged to play an active role in improving their health.
All-Encompassing. Emphasizes the importance of diet and lifestyle.
Preventative - Corrects imbalances before they turn into major problems.
Evidence-based. Based on the latest research from peer-reviewed medical journals, and uncorrupted by corporate and political interests.
Rather than targeting individual symptoms, Functional Wellness focuses on the optimal functioning of the entire body and its organs.
While I specialize in nutrition, I embrace the fact that health is multi-faceted. Science shows us that all calories aren't created equal, and that our gut health, level of stress, hormones, environment, genetics, and lifestyle are all inter-related and influence our well-being.
holistic approach to health and wellness, which means that I look at how all areas of your life are connected. Does stress at your job or in your relationship(s) cause you to overeat? Does lack of sleep or low energy prevent you from exercising? As we work together, we will look at how all parts of your life affect your health as a whole.
I coach my clients to better their health through a whole-body approach that encompasses nutrition, supplementation, stress management, movement, sleep, and self care.
“If you listen to your body when it whispers, you won't have to hear it scream.”
The body is self-healing, and will work for you (rather than against you) when you provide it with the support and tools it needs.
