Hi! Thanks for visiting my page. I'm a Naturotherapist who specializes in Holistic Nutrition.
As someone who's suffered from various ailments my entire life with no real reasons or answers, I know how frustrating it can be when you're told "sorry, there's nothing more we can do. So I started at a very young age creating my own concoctions and looking for ways to address my symptoms instead of suppressing them with medications that came with a whole slurry of side effects. I've been through tests upon tests and felt like a human guinea pig for a long time! I absolutely loved my Doctor but when it occurred to me that the medical profession doesn't have all the answers for everything I decided it was time to take my health into my hands and figure out what works for me because I'm not the same as everyone else and this is no magic pill! I work along with my health team to figure out what's best for me and that's what I do with my clients too!
Taking control of your health allows you to take back control and feel empowered!
I started studying Aromatherapy and once that world opened up, I realized just how much there is to know about natural products and how they can support my healing journey so I decided to go back to school and study Natural Nutrition. My passion for natural health grew from there. In addition to being an Aromatherapist, a Registered Holistic Health Practitioner, I'm also a Reiki Master, Crystal Reiki Master, a Crystal Sonic Rejuvenation Practitioner, and Meditation teacher. Other modalities that I've studied and incorporated into my healing programs are Hatha Yoga, Thai Massage, Herbalism, Aura Cleansing, and Balancing, Chakra Balancing, and Health Coaching. I love this world and everything about it! I'm constantly learning and growing and what I've learned on this journey is that I'm here to share my knowledge with people who want to take their health back and feel empowered to feel their best at any stage in life.
Working on myself means knowing that everything is connected so I incorporate body, mind, and spirit into my own healing journey and that's what I do for my clients! I'm not perfect by any means and I don't expect you to be perfect but if you want to FEEL BETTER, and address the root cause of your symptoms, then I promise there are things you can do to feel better, more balanced, and grounded and find more energy.
Health is work but it's worth it!
Together through education, support, and working alongside your health team if necessary is how you can take back control of your life and become healthier and happier.
Nutritional Symptomatology is the study of symptoms as they relate to nutritional deficiencies. It's a simple, yet valuable science used for the assessment of nutritional deficiencies and imbalances. An assessment is the most valuable and simplest tool at our disposal for the assessment of nutritional deficiencies and for disease prevention. Pursung optimal health at all levels of being: physical, mental and spiritual we look for the answers within. Through an in depth look at the individual as a whole I can evaluate the state of well being and overall health. At the end of the our session together I will make recommendations for the complete person and be able to direct you to the underlying issues and/or imbalances that must be addressed first. You ultimately hold the key to your own well-being but with education, support and assistance you can rebuild your optimum health.
The philosophy of holistic nutrition is that one’s health is an expression of the complex interplay between the physical and chemical, mental and emotional, as well as spiritual and environmental aspects of one’s life and being. As such, professionals who are trained in holistic nutrition approach health and healing from a whole-person perspective. Using nutritional education as a primary tool, holistic nutrition professionals emphasize the building of health by approaching each person as a unique individual. This requires fully engaging the individual in their health recovery process and honoring their innate wisdom by working in an empowering and cooperative manner to chart a course to optimal health.
While there is some commonality in the scope of practice for health coaches and holistic nutrition professionals, it is limited to motivational interviewing techniques (MIT). Holistic nutrition professionals gain extensive clinical education and knowledge that broadens their scope of practice beyond the limitations of health coaching.
A Holistic Nutrition Professional advises individuals, families, and groups on how to improve diet, lifestyle, and attitude to promote health. He/she may work with a licensed healthcare provider to help individuals with previously diagnosed illnesses identify biochemical imbalances and toxicities that contribute to poor health. His/her advice and support is founded on evidence-based and holistic principles.
A Natural Chef teaches clients and groups to eat for health and provides healthy meals for them.
A licensed Healthcare Provider (MD, ND, DO, DC, RN, etc.) may work with a Holistic Nutrition Professional to educate patients on the benefits of whole foods, lifestyle improvements and appropriate supplementation relative to their health issue, or provide these services themselves.
Our job is to bring non-biased health and nutrition information to friends, neighbors, associates and the media. We educate the public on the cost/benefit of eating unprocessed local, fresh, plant-based foods. There is value in taking quality nutritional products to manage chronic nutritional deficiencies and toxicities associated with lifestyle and environmentally-related health problems.
As some people know I make custom Aromatherapy Products. Currently, I'm re-branding these products and will some have some awesome natural, non toxic natural health and wellness products for you! Ask me about custom blends too if you can't find what you're looking for!
