Why go Holistic?

You are what you eat. Most people are aware of this. They may not like it, but it’s true. But there’s more to it than that. When it comes to food, you also are what you chew, digest, absorb and discrete. The reality is your body is made of cells. Those cells depend greatly on what nutrients you choose to put in your mouth, in the form of food and beverages, and how well your body breaks them down for optimal absorption. And, the quality of output matters too. Bottom line, your body is doing what it can to work well, but if you have been choosing low quality food, that’s what your body gets to re-generate itself with.

And what about your lifestyle? Are you over worked, stressed out, and not moving enough? These too have a massive effect on your quality of living. That’s a lot to consider! Often people just don’t know where to begin.

And that’s where someone like myself comes in. Holistic nutrition looks at your body as a whole. It recognizes that each of us are individuals, with specific needs. There is not one specific plan for all people. As a holistic nutritionist I look deeper than the foods you eat. I do an assessment of your body and lifestyle based on your symptoms, to discover what is out of balance, then set up a plan on how to improve that. Yes, it always will include foods, because your body requires it for fuel, just like your car needs gas, oil and antifreeze.

You will learn so much about the best ways to assist your body in breaking down your foods for optimal absorption. You will learn about bowel function, and how to insure a good “output” regularly. Other results you likely will experience are weight loss, increased energy, better sleep, better sex, acne, eczema and psoriasis might subside. Many experience reduced cravings and hunger. Others feel brain fog reduce and increased mental clarity. And to think….it all begins with what you choose to put in your mouth.
