In my experience with functional wellness clients, I have noticed that conventional medicine typically overlooks or ignores root causes of common chronic symptoms that affect so many women, especially around midlife.
Meanwhile, the booming fields of scientific study in nutrition, epigenetics, and biophysics continue to prove that our food, habits, modern environment, and even our mindset directly affect our health for better or for worse.
Functional nutritionists use the clinically-proven concepts of functional medicine to give your body the conditions it needs to heal itself. Thousands of peer-reviewed studies have been published in the most prestigious medical journals to support the functional medicine approach to wellness.
Functional nutrition is based on eating whole, organic foods, with supplements only as needed. Foods and supplements are recommended based on your specific test results, so both are targeted to your individual needs.
However, real food and supplements are only a small part of building your optimal health.
There are so many challenges in modern life that affect our well being, and there is no miracle supplement program that will substitute for consciously taking care of yourself on all levels.
Until you learn to master these self-care basics (with my help), taking supplements will not do nearly as much for you as you would like:
- breathing consciously
- hydrating yourself properly
- sleeping soundly
- giving yourself a daily dose of sunshine
- protecting yourself from “junk light”
- eating the proper foods for your biochemistry
- changing your reactions to mental/emotional stresses
- cleaning up your home environment, including electromagnetic radiation (from wi-fi, cell phones and cell towers, smart meters, smart devices, faulty home wiring, and many other sources)
If your health does not improve significantly after mastering the items above, there are more areas to investigate. As we work together, I guide you and refer you to others who can help.
- food sensitivities
- chronic infections
- digestive health
- brain health
- heavy metals toxicity
- problems with the teeth and mouth that need to be fixed (such as mercury fillings, root canals, and mouth breathing)
- examining your home for toxins such as chemicals and mold
I believe that your own body can heal most chronic health conditions as long as you nurture it with a clean environment, the right light, proper nutrition, the right type of exercise and stress reduction that works for you.
I believe that not all calories are created equal.
I believe that eating well and having a productive life are not mutually exclusive. A little preparation goes a long way towards turning real food into “fast” food right in your own kitchen.
I believe that a great health practitioner will help her client to connect the dots and consider factors that others have overlooked.
I believe that symptoms such as brain fog, low energy, hair loss, moodiness, low tolerance for stress, adult acne and more can be resolved through proper nourishment, exercise and cleansing of your internal and external environments.
I believe that getting older doesn’t have to mean pain, fatigue, and memory loss. Aging does not have to result in dementia, depression, and loss of independence.
But it’s not your fault if you’re sick.
We live in a toxic, stressful, unnatural world. If you are not consciously working on your health every day, you will get the default, which these days means disease.
Most of us don’t realize this until we are faced with our own chronic health challenges.
Now that you know better, I will help you do better.
