An integrative approach to optimal health. Understanding that food and nutrition relate to all aspects of health, and that other factors, such as emotional, environmental and lifestyle affect health and the body's ability to heal.
Nutrition is the foundation, the first and most significant factor, to a healthy life.
Working together, we will focus on assessing your health and nutrition goals, your lifestyle, food preferences and your schedule.
WHY NUTRITIONAL COUNSELLING?
I work from a perspective of understanding the systems of the body and the nutritional requirements at a cellular level.
For example, the membranes lining the cells within the body are made of a phospholipid (fat) by-layer. What determines the type of fatty acid present in the cell membrane is the type of fat you consume. Without the right type of fat, cells simply do not function properly.
"According to modern pathology, or the study of disease processes, an alteration in cell membrane function is the central factor in the development of virtually every disease."
-The Encyclopedia of Healing Foods
By introducing healing fats, and eliminating harmful fats, the body receives this as instructions and immediately can begin a healing process.
Working together, we can look at all areas of your diet and lifestyle. I can help to provide targeted information, supplementation and dietary changes in a simplified day to day way.
We can also explore healthy lifestyle choices such as eating in a calm atmosphere, emotional well being and physical movement that suits your life.
Nutrition can be fundamental to help with digestion, energy, blood sugar, weight management, hormonal health, inflammation, skin health, cholesterol, heart health, food sensitivities, fertility and as prevention.
A nutrition plan may include any of the following based on your preference and need:
- dietary information
- therapeutic and functional foods to include
- therapeutic or optimal supplementation
- nutritional guidelines for your healthcare concerns
- meal ideas
- meal plans
- grocery shopping lists
- lifestyle recommendations
Children have specific needs as their bodies are in a period of growth. We can work together to find healthy food that your children will actually enjoy eating!
