Inflammation is killing people. I am on a mission to change that.
My expertise is in helping people reduce inflammation. I help women get rid of joint pain, stomach issues, and unexplained weight gain. I practice a 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 cause you to overeat? Let's fix that. Does lack of sleep or low energy prevent you from exercising? Cool, me too. Let's fix it. We will figure out how all parts of your life affect your health as a whole.
I work with my clients to get in touch with their individual body’s needs because I understand that life happens and your needs change throughout your life. I want to equip you with the self-awareness and intuitive ability to make the best choices for yourself, in any situation. I believe every person is the expert on him or herself, but we all need guides to teach us how to listen to the signals our bodies are sending us. Together, we will create your individual perfect-you plan, and you won't need another magazine article or fad diet book.
Let’s define what you desire most from your well-being. We’ll use these visions to create specific goals that close the gap between who you are, and where you want to be. As your coach, I will not dictate a diet for you, but together we will explore why some foods make you feel better than others and how to use that data strategically.
concepts that we will explore during our work together:
INTEGRATIVE NUTRITION PLATE.
The Integrative Nutrition Plate emphasizes the importance of local and organic produce, whole grains, high-quality proteins, plant-based fats, and water. It shows you how a plate should appear at mealtime and emphasizes the importance of proportions and portion size. To complete the picture, the plate is surrounded with lifestyle factors that create optimal health: relationship, career, physical activity and spirituality. I’ll introduce you to some of the healthiest foods on the planet and teach you how to find what’s healthiest for your unique body!
Many nutrition experts give their clients a list of foods to avoid and foods to eat, which explains why so many people are turned off by nutrition. My approach is different – by eating and drinking foods that are good for you, you will naturally have less room and desire for unhealthy foods. Simply put, you will crowd out the unhealthy food in your diet. This takes a little practice to make happen, but I will support you along the way.
Nutrition is a secondary source of energy. Primary foods, or nonfood sources of nourishment, are what really fuel us. It goes beyond the plate, nurturing us on a deeper level. The four main primary foods are: career, relationships, physical activity, and spirituality.
The concept of Bio-Individuality is the idea that each of us has unique food and lifestyle needs. One person’s food is another person’s poison, and that’s why fad diets tend to fail in the long run. Working on the principle of bio-individuality, I’ll support you to make positive changes that are based on your unique needs, lifestyle, preferences, and ancestral background.
Cravings play a critical role in understanding what your body needs and shouldn’t be ignored. When you learn how to deconstruct your cravings and understand what they’re really telling you, you will be able to reclaim a sense of balance and harmony.
