I support my clients as they create health and lifestyle goals. Helping them address dietary issues that may include weight management, food craving, sleep, energy, stress management or digestion and intestinal health. I work with my clients by empowering them make more conscious lifestyle and behavior changes surrounding their health concerns. I believe that we need a balanced diet of live, natural and good quality foods. Sweets and processed foods cause disease and trigger negative physiological and emotional changes. I advocate for eating seasonal fruit, lots of locally grown vegetables, moderate protein and good healthy fats every day.

Exercise is an integral part of a good health and wellness regime. This activity is a personal choice but I recommend making a commitment. Having a buddy go too if possible helps to encourage good attendance and makes the workout/practice/or game more fun. Exercise improves the body, mind spirit. Be true to yourself. It takes insight and honesty to understand our own strengths and weaknesses. A healthy body, mind and soul are crucial to having a healthy outlook. A mind that is well fed and nourished will make better choices and be less impulsive. A body that is fueled with real food and natural supplements will provide better energy, better stability, and better endurance. A soul that feels peace, contentment and acceptance is better able to be present, happier, more optimistic and generous.

The holistic approach, deals with the whole person, and believes in the body’s ability to heal itself. We work toward getting to the root cause of the illness or imbalance. Recommendations are based on a variety of symptoms that represent the early stages of illness before they develop into more serious problems. Nutritional Consultants deal with each person individually, offering recommendations specific to their personal needs. We look at the long-term impact and implications of additives, preservatives, pesticides, antibiotics, and are critical of short-term studies that suggest these chemicals, such as artificial sweeteners, are safe for human consumption.

I support the use of natural supplements but caution that these supplements need to be scrutinized and monitored. This is a great role for a Holistic Nutritionist. Supplements can be indispensable in the recommended form, dose and frequency.
