"Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food" - Hippocrates
Whether you are an athlete looking for that edge in your training, an aging baby boomer searching for a boost in energy level or a couple interested in starting a family, these and more are what motivate people to seek out the guidance of a Nutritional Therapist. As Hippocrates professed in the very early days of medicine, the body has its own innate intelligence and when given proper nutritional support, it is capable of healing as it achieves balance or homeostasis. Choosing to eat nourishing foods is a powerful tool for reclaiming wellness and taking an active role in your health maintenance. Together we will devise a nutritional plan that best meets your needs and your Nutritional Therapist will provide guidance and support along your shift toward healthier eating and more vibrancy.
Nutritional Therapy emphasizes the proper preparation of real food with a focus on your digestive health when devising this individualized nutritional plan. Your digestive system works like a finely tuned orchestra with hormonal inputs from various organs in precise timing. This function begins in a parasympathetic (or relaxed) state, therefore we start from a top-down approach to find out how well your digestive system is operating in breaking down and assimilating your food. When the digestion of properly prepared nutrient dense foods is functioning more like a symphony, then the body has more raw materials to utilize in the process of maintaining wellness. It is amazing how capable your body is of healing and how it responds to the nutritional support, especially to a whole food nutrient dense diet!

Many people have forgotten or never learned how to cook because there have been so many technological advances in the food preparation industry. While these advances have time saving attributes for the busy person and family, they also have impacted our well being in a negative way.
