FOOD IS MEDICINE
One of my teachers, Dr. Mark Hyman says it best. “Food is medicine. It’s not like medicine, it is medicine.” What you put on the end of your fork is more powerful than anything you will find in a pill bottle.
It's hard not to deny that there is a major health crisis going on. Between increased rates of chronic disease including, Type 2 diabetes, obesity, and cancer to a wide array of nasty ingredients in our food, it seems that more people are becoming aware of what's going on, but may not necessarily know what to do to deal with these growing issues. The field of nutrition is overwhelming and confusing ! This is where I come in.
My objective is to help you sort through this mess of information and use realistic and effective techniques that promote wellness and allow you to reach your health, lifestyle, and wellness goals.
By understanding your goals, I will construct a graduated and adaptable program, celebrating each positive step as a victory, and gradually reversing years of bad habits and unhealthy living. I am compassionate and understanding, and realize not only how hard it is to make changes, but the difficult task of making changes become permanent habits. Therefore, I’ll share practical, tangible tools and educational materials to accomplish and maintain your new habits.
My program starts with defining the WHY - Why do you want to make a change in your life? Losing weight, a healthy lifestyle, and feeling great are all results, but the underlying why is going to be the defining force behind your change.
