Nutrition

nutrition-thumbnailWe practice a holistic approach to health and wellness, which means that we look at how all areas of your life are connected. Does stress at your job or in your relationship cause you to overeat? Does lack of sleep or low energy prevent you from exercising? As we work together, we will look at how all parts of your life affect your health as a whole.

Our approach is not to dwell on calories, carbs, fats, and proteins. It is not to create lists of restrictions or good and bad foods. Instead, we work with my clients to create a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and rewarding.

Together we’ll work to reach your health goals in areas such as achieving optimal weight, reducing food cravings, increasing sleep, and maximizing energy. As we work together, you’ll develop a deeper understanding of the food and lifestyle choices that work best for you and implement lasting changes that will improve your energy, balance and health.

“The best sources of vitamins and minerals are found in whole foods” Dr. Royal Lee, founder of Standard Process Choose Wisely Selecting a Supplement

Are whole food nutrient complexes included?

There is a great health value that comes from the nutrient complexes found in the whole foods. Dr. Royal Lee referred to this as “life element, “and it can be produced only through biological processes. That is why we start with the highest quality whole food ingredients when making our supplements. These ingredients contain complex structures that combine a variety of elements that work together to support healthy balance in the body. Other targeted ingredients are added to the formulas as needed to support specific systems in the body.

Is it comprehensive?

When we take supplements, we often think that more is better and try to megadose. However, when choosing supplements, quality is far more important than quantity. Supplements that contain only synthetic vitamins have just a fraction in foods. Those supplements may only address challenges in the body. Supplements that include whole food ingredients are more complex. These supplements contain a mix of constituents that can be used to address a wider range of the body’s needs.
