My Approach

FOOD CHANGES EVERYTHING

When you make a choice you change the future! – Dr. Deepak Chopra                                          olive oil with herbs

Most of the health conditions we face are preventable with simple diet and lifestyle changes.  What we eat and how we think changes us at a cellular level! The good news is, you can transform yourself and rebuild a new you!

  • Human body has a unique ability to self heal
  • Every second each cell in our body coordinates billions of chemical reactions.
  • Every month we completely regenerate our outer layer of skin
  • Every 3 months we completely rebuild and replace our blood supply
  • Every 10 years we completely rebuild and remodel every bone in our body, creating a completely new skeleton.  ‘Dr. Libby Weaver

WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT TO KNOW?

Human body is equipped with a unique DNA specific to each individual. Our body is programmed to self heal in a very organized and systematic fashion to maintain homeostasis at all times! Understanding and honoring this unique property empowers us to take control of our health. It’s never too late to take that powerful step to create a new you!

As a professionally trained  health coach I practice a holistic approach to health and wellness, which means that I look at how all areas of your life are connected for an overall general health.. My approach is not to dwell on calories, carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. It’s not about creating daunting lists of diet restrictions or good and bad foods or even portion control. I work with my clients honoring their cultural factors, their ancestry to create a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and rewarding.  I can meet you where you are in your health journey and help you get to where you need to be.

Together we’ll work on reaching your health goals in areas such as achieving optimal weight, address any food cravings, improve sleep quality and maximize energy. As we work together, you’ll upgrade your nutrition knowledge, develop a deeper understanding of the food and lifestyle choices that work best for your body for an optimal health.


Here are some concepts that we will explore during our work together

Integrative Nutrition Plate†

fruits and vegetablesThe Integrative Nutrition Plate emphasizes the importance of local and organic produce, whole grains, high-quality proteins, plant-based fats, and water. It shows you how a plate should appear at mealtime and emphasizes the importance of proportions and portion size. To complete the picture, the plate is surrounded with lifestyle factors that create optimal health: relationship, career, physical activity and spirituality. I’ll introduce you to some of the healthiest foods on the planet and teach you how to find what’s healthiest for your unique body!

 

Primary Food†

loveIt’s easy to overlook all of the things that contribute to our sense of nourishment and fulfillment. It’s not just the food we eat that affects our health, but all of the other factors present in our daily lives. Healthy relationships, a fulfilling career, regular physical activity, and a spiritual awareness are essential forms of nourishment. When these primary foods are balanced, what you eat becomes secondary. I will support you in achieving all of your goals, from eating the right foods for your body to living an inspired, fulfilling life.

 

Bio-IINdividuality*

grainsThe concept of Bio-IINndividuality is the idea that each of us has unique food and lifestyle needs. One person’s food is another person’s poison, and that’s why fad diets tend to fail in the long run. Working on the principle of bio-individuality, I’ll support you to make positive changes that are based on your unique needs, lifestyle, preferences, and ancestral background.

 

Crowding Out††

Many nutrition experts give their clients a list of foods to avoid and foods to eat, which explains why so many people are turned off by nutrition. My approach is different – by eating and drinking foods that are good for you, you will naturally have less room and desire for unhealthy foods. Simply put, you will crowd out the unhealthy food in your diet. This takes a little practice to make happen, but I will support you along the way.

Deconstructing Cravings††
