Welcome! Do you feel like you are on a treadmill when it comes to your health and do you feel like there is something missing overall? Do you ever wonder if you have to feel this way forever? Have you wondered how the food you eat (or aren’t eating) plays a role in your health?
I work with busy, stressed-out moms who are wondering where their energy went and feel like they can feel better but need an extra set of hands to take the guesswork out of it. I have been there myself and feel your pain and wish I had someone to help dig me out of the ditch. I want to help you regain your energy and feel like you are thriving and not just surviving.
By visiting this site, you have taken the first step towards your health and wellness goals. There is no one-size-fits-all diet for improving your health. I look forward to working with you on a custom nutrition and integrative health plan that fits your personality and lifestyle.
I use a Functional Nutrition and lifestyle approach. Functional Nutrition emphasizes healthful eating personalized to YOUR genetics, lifestyle, environment, and health concerns, addressing the root cause of nutritional imbalances, which may be seemingly unrelated to the issues you may be experiencing. For example, low nutrient status may be due to underlying gastrointestinal (GI) absorption issues, unrelated to nutrient intake and a “healthy” diet. GI issues can be caused by a variety of things such as antibiotic use, certain medications, age, low stomach acid, underlying infection, food sensitivities, and stress, to name a few. With health conditions and medications, certain nutrients may be depleted. We will work together to replenish those nutrients.
I use a food-first approach, believing in the power of food to provide information to the body to tell it to function as it should. However, sometimes food just isn’t enough and we will explore targeted supplements to help, along with dietary and lifestyle changes.
I will work as a team with your healthcare practitioners to support you on your path to wellness. My approach is to eventually get YOU to support yourself and on your path to wellness by educating you on the foundations of good dietary and lifestyle habits. Understanding that our path to health and wellness is not linear, I am here to support you throughout your journey. The approach is not a quick fix “diet plan” and it is designed to be sustainable for the long haul and may require a tiered approach. I have lived through it and understand how much you want it to happen quickly but please remember to be kind, gentle, and patient with yourself and the process.
Please contact me if you would like to book a FREE 15-minute Discovery Call to determine if we would be a good fit. I look forward to speaking with you and helping you on your journey!
