Balancing the Body’s Internal Environment
I educate clients on nutrition to help every client restore a state of homeostasis. The education we explore covers topics such as: removing toxins, lowering inflammation, feeding deficiencies, strengthening the immune system, healing the gut, weight loss/gain, migraines, IBS, strengthening digestion, lowering/managing food sensitives, learning to eat a nourishing and healthy diet, and locating reliable nutrition information.
This education is based on classical and modern herbalism, orthomolecular (cell-specific) nutrition, and the principles of classical naturopathy, functional medicine and mind-body medicine. I include modern findings emphasizing the importance of the mind-body connection, gut-brain axis, autonomic/somatic/enteric nervous systems.
We learn how to remove toxins, and address deficiencies, which is a common problem we all have.
You will be empowered to heal your body, remove problems and give the body what it needs allowing for your innate wisdom of healing to do what it’s designed to accomplish, i.e. cause healing.
Due to the gut-brain axis, we target gut health to impact positive changes across the mind and body. The gut is the seat of health. We target enzymes, stomach acid, the health of the intestines, microflora, and work to repair leaky gut, intestinal microflora and restore balance and health of the entire GI tract.
You also will be more empowered to balance glands and organs, removing toxins and providing the nutrition needed for optimal function, guided by both traditional herbal wisdom and modern evidence-based orthomolecular and functional medicine findings and research.
This comprehensive approach also allows the body to restore normal levels of neurotransmitters, enzymes and hormones and allows the body to restore balance across all its systems.
The philosophy behind nutrition education is that all healing is self-healing, that you can work “with nature”, with the body’s innate wisdom. The goal is to restore balance (homeostasis) to your inner environment, this causes inner and lasting healing.
Clients find this beneficial with chronic illness, pain, boosting the immune system, cancer, sleep, weight loss or gain, allergies, mystery conditions, along with supporting a more resilient mental health state.
We also discuss maintaining physical health and prevention of imbalances.
To help restore balance to the body’s environment we blend:
- Functional nutrition, blending: Integrative, orthomolecular (cellular-specific) with Nutritional Response Testing (NRT)
- Western and eastern herbalism
