How can nutrition consulting help your unique health concerns? 

 

Chances are you’re reading this because your doctor has told you to eat better and lose weight while your numbers continued to rise, but she did not tell you how to do this. Or you have a new health diagnosis related to a blood sugar imbalance.

As with so many of us, you may have tried some of the diets out there–like the keto, paleo or mediterranean diet–and gone into a temporary calorie deficit, only to be discouraged.

Dieting without a healthy lifestyle change based on practicing good nutrition–not just knowing nutrition facts–can have your weight and symptoms go up and down like a yo-yo, and then end up increasing after each round. 

With how our medical system works, even with a doctor’s best intentions, there is not enough time for them to teach you how to use food as medicine and restore your health.

Where we start

We start by looking at the root causes of your health issues, paying attention to your bio-individuality. What type of nutritional changes will address your unique health concerns?

With health issues such as pre-diabetes, insulin resistance, cardiovascular disease, or diabetes, many other body systems can be affected. By working together to create a thorough understanding of your body and your health, we will determine where to start and which systems need support.  

What you eat is as important as how you eat. Learning new ways to recognize stress and how to minimize it, and practicing how to prioritize your health, healing, and self care, enables you to take your health in your own hands and gain back control of your life.  

It takes a conscious effort to create new behavioral habits and plan meals in advance, so that you are eating the best foods possible. I am here to help you stay on a healthy new path and give you the guidance and support to do so.  Discover new, powerful motivation by developing a deeper understanding of how your body works and the relationship that we have with the food that we eat and don’t eat. 

Together we will dive into where food meets physiology. You’ll learn: 

  • how sleep affects blood sugar 
  • which foods lower inflammation and how they do that 
  • why the timing of what you eat matters for blood sugar balance and weight loss 
  • as well as what you put on your plate and in what portion size.  

The more you know, the more empowered you are and the more you are in charge of the change that can happen in the body.

Adrenals

I start with the support for the adrenal glands, as they are the seat of your vitality. Using food as medicine, we support the body in relaxing the stress response so that your adrenals are more available for healing and rebalancing your metabolism and blood sugar

Gut Health 

Restoring gut health is an important step and may include: 

  • adding more fermented foods 
  • healing leaky gut
  • eliminating food allergens
  • and cleaning up the diet so it is easier on:
    • the digestive system 
    • detoxification systems 
    • and the immune system 

A gut out of balance can be a root cause of blood sugar imbalance.  

Amino Acid Therapy

Restoring the gut brain connection with Amino Acid Therapy can lead to important health benefits. A gut that is out of balance could be affecting your mood, sleep, and cravings for carbohydrates and sugary foods. 

Amino Acid therapy provides immediate support in helping to restore your neurotransmitters that may be out of balance. The therapy can reduce your cravings, support your sleep, your ability to handle stress and elevate the mood! 

You might have the very best of intentions, but if you are out of balance, you might have a harder time following through with the choices you want to make. (wait did I just eat that?)

Amino Acid Therapy can also be successfully used with clients who are in the process of tapering off of SSRI or sleep medications with the help of their doctor.

Is This You?

  • You have been a health seeker and know that food and nutrition matters!
  • You try to make conscious choices about what you put in your body and feed to others when it comes to food.
  • You seek out healthy food–not just low calorie food. You read labels, and understand the importance of a healthy diet.
  • You know that diet and lifestyle can make a difference, and that there are no magic pills that will solve your health problem.
  • Something is off, and you have exhaustively researched and tried several diets out there trying to figure out how to get a handle on your health.
  • Even though you have been trying, your weight has not come down and your lab numbers keep rising.
  • You might even be able to look at a plate of food and know exactly how many calories, fat grams or points that plate of food has.
  • You want natural holistic education and principles to be able to make a difference in your health and you would like support in putting it all together.

 

You might be asking questions like:

  • Even though my lab tests are normal and my doctor says everything is fine, why don’t I feel fine?
  • Something has happened to my metabolism. What foods should I eat to support my metabolism?
  • I am confused about carbohydrates, should I eat them? What about protein and fat?
  • Am I supposed to eat more greens? How can I do that?
  • What about exercise–does it matter? What kind and when do I do it?
  • I keep hearing about sleep and if it plays a role. I am such a night owl, how can I sleep more and improve my rest?
