WHAT TO EXPECT

Assessments: To analyze the nutritional quality of your diet and to make recommendations it will be necessary to assess the past and present state of your diet and lifestyle. We start with a nutritional intake assessment that explores your holistic health state, taking into consideration areas such as goals, allergies and intolerances, activity level, mental-emotional health, sleep quality, environmental and self-care toxins, microbiome health, and metabolic requirements.


Education: Every session will include an educational component geared to your needs and interests. This includes one on one guidance, and possibly the recommendation of cooking sessions, recipe sourcing, and reading materials.

Goal Setting:  During each consultation we will evaluate the possibility of setting goals or modifying old ones based on your progress, difficulties, and strengths.

Customized Nutrition Wellness Plans: A wellness plan will be created or updated to meet your unique needs.

Health state adapts and evolves with life; according to age, change of season, emotional state, and with healing progress, to name a few. Regular follow ups are recommended as a source of support and maintenance.

You may wish for guidance in the following areas:

  • Making sense out of conflicting theories of nutrition; which ‘way of eating’ is right for you.
  • Learning how to balance the nutritional needs of the body: macro and micronutrient needs versus intuitive eating, fiber intake, essential fatty acids, and phytochemical support.
  • Physical energy and vitality: chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia.
  • Nutrition, acupuncture, and lifestyle guidance for sleeping soundly.
  • Digestion: customized protocols for constipation and diarrhea; permeable/leaky gut and dysbiosis; SIBO, IBS, IBD, diverticulitis, and candidiasis.
  • Hormone regulation: PMS, blood sugar and insulin resistance, hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, hashimotos, grave’s, PCOS, HPA axis syndrome (adrenal fatigue).
  • Detoxification: liver health, skin rejuvenation, seasonal self-care.
  • Immune system support: frequent colds and flus, frequent infections, allergies and intolerances, autoimmune conditions.

  • Mood swings, anxiety, ADHD, and depression: differentiating different causes that contribute to mood imbalances.
  • Weight loss: exploration of hormones that control your metabolism, food sensitivities and/or allergies, appetite and eating behaviour, craving cessation, insulin resistance and blood sugar health, nutritional ketosis and low carb high fat meal planning.
  • Food reactions: elimination-reintroduction anti-inflammatory protocols (intolerance, metabolic, chemical, and enzyme deficiency differentiation), cross-sensitivities and reactors, biogenic amine intolerances, FODMAPs, yeast and mycotoxin sensitivity, enzyme inhibitors and anti-nutrients.
  • Pregnancy, lactation, food introduction to infants.
  • Eating disorders in conjunction with referrals for counselling.
  • Meal planning, grocery shopping, and snack ideas.
  • Quality food journalling to help guide intuitive consumption.

My work involves differentiating the root cause of imbalance and to remedy deficiencies with food as medicine and as a source of joy.
