Do you want to feel good in your body, have energy and stamina to get through your days?

How about thriving? How do you want to age?

No matter where you are in your body, recovering  or just looking for advanced moves, I can help you find your way into whole health.
We are so busy just keeping up with our lives that exercise often takes a back seat and we often sabotage ourselves by eating things we know we shouldn’t. Over indulgence of alcohol, caffeine, refined carbohydrates and sugary foods / drinks  makes these issues much worse.

We want a body and a mind that takes us into golden years not just  disease free, but sharp and thriving.

There is hope. You CAN change. I will help you make those changes. I’m a Nutritionist and Whole Heath Educator.

What is a whole health educator?  Simply put, I consider the FIVE ASPECTS of health and whole wellness . These aspects are :

  • Physical: genetics, gender, age, activity level, body composition immune system function, hormone changes, sleep, physical stressors ( allergies).
  • Environmental: culture, income ( affluent/ poverty), water and air quality, exposure to toxins, noise levels.
  • Emotional: survival/ safety, belonging, self esteem,personal fulfillment, productivity, tensions , anxieties, depression, loneliness
  • Nutritional: quality of food intake, vitamins, minerals, over consumption of alcohol, smoking, organ function stress levels ( increased nutritional needs).
  • Spiritual. Values, world view, belief systems, trust/fear, sacred vs non sacred perspective, global consciousness.

Whole health is looking at your body as a puzzle.imageedit_131_3746801190  When one of the pieces are missing, there is imbalance. All of these elements uniquely rolled into you, are what makes you well, or dis-eased.

I have helped hundreds of people achieve their full wellness potential using a very basic, uncomplicated approach to nutrition, and creative ideas for changes in lifestyle.
I believe that Real Food, as nature intended, provides the medicine we need to obtain and maintain a state of health.
You are a snowflake and there is no one diet or lifestyle program that fits all. So we do some hard looking around, and find what works best for YOU.
Many conditions can be relieved and eliminated with this holistic approach to nutrition & wellness, including obesity, auto immune disorders, chronic fatigue, energy loss, insomnia, depression, backache, skin issues, asthma, and headaches. It can also help you prevent or cope with chronic diseases such as heart disease, high blood pressure,thyroid issues, cancer and diabetes.
