Holistic Nutrition

Your health and wellbeing reflects the unique interaction between the physical and chemical, mental and emotional, as well as the spiritual and environmental aspects of your life.

Healthy nutrition has many components:
- nutrient dense foods
- mindful eating
- intermittent fasting
- proper digestion
- nutrient absorption
- shopping for food
- preparing food

Working together we can improve your health through a gradual transformation in the way you nourish your body, mind and spirit.

 

 

 

Lifestyle Coaching

Everyone is unique, embracing health and avoiding dis-ease requires an individualized plan for each person.  But no one need be alone on their path to wellbeing.

You can expect:
- diet and lifestyle analysis
- individualized meal plans
- holistic nutrition education
- exercise and lifestyle recommendations
- herb and supplement recommendations
- lab work assessments
- individual or group sessions
- email or text support between sessions
- a compassionate ally on your journey to health and happiness

Making sustainable lifestyle changes can be challenging.  As your holistic nutrition and lifestyle coach I can provide you with the tools, support and motivation to make healthy diet and lifestyle choices.

More that just advice...

For most people maintaining a healthy weight is a struggle.  It is estimated that 75% of adults in the US are overweight or obese. Health care providers routinely advise their overweight patients to improve their diet by eating more whole foods, avoid refined foods, and increase their level of physical activity.

This is great medical advice.  If practiced correctly, a healthy whole foods diet combined with moderate physical activity can result in significant weight loss, as well as improved physical and mental health.

We face a conundrum.  Although the advice is on-target and the patients are willing - this advice does not significantly help patients lose weight.  So why doesn’t this medical advice translate into weight loss for patients?

Researchers at Duke University recently discovered that weight loss advice which does not include specific instructions about nutrition and exercise is often ineffective.  This study revealed that when weight-loss patients were encouraged to seek the assistance of a nutrition and wellness coach, they lost more weight than someone who was only given the generic advice to "eat better and exercise more."

 

Nature and Spirituality

To manage a busy schedule, sometimes we take shortcuts that result in unhealthy lifestyle choices.

Maybe you have stopped spending time in nature, cannot find time to be alone with your thoughts, are unable to meditate or pray, or no longer feel gratitude for the blessings in your life.

Diminished health is usually an indication of disrupted schedules and unhealthy habits.  Your path to wellbeing is already encoded within your cells.  Working together we can find a healthy lifestyle that includes time in nature and spiritual connection.
