Health Coaching

What is Health Coaching and How Can it Help Me?

In September of 2016 I became a certified Health Coach through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition www.integrativenutrition.com

In 2011 after the birth of my second daughter I developed severe chronic ezcema that covered my hands for 3.5 years.  After years of following traditional medical advice and multiple medications with no resolution, I began researching the root causes of skin diseases and uncovered information that changed my life drastically.

With my new found passion for nutrition and natural therapies, I am excited to offer my patients a way toward wellness, free of medications and constant doctor visits.  Let me help you understand your unique body and what it needs to function optimally. I can help you uncover the root causes for your ailments and reset your digestion and detoxification pathways.

What is the ideal diet? We are all unique, with different constitiutions and life circumstances therefore diets must be tailored to each individual.  It is best to work with a health care professional who has a nutritional background and can help navigate what foods work best for you.  It is crucial to check for any intestinal infections or leaky gut, as these are the leading cause of most chronic diseases today. Learn more about The Perfect Health Diet as described by scientists Paul and Shou-Ching Jaminet: http://perfecthealthdiet.com
 

Although diet is extremely important to our overall health, there are other factors that can contribute significantly to our well being.  IIN calls these factors primary foods and lists them as Spirituality, Exercise, Relationships and Career.  If there are any major conflicts or problems/deficiencies in any of these areas, then is is very difficult to achieve complete wellness even if an individual has a very clean diet.  Our emotions and stress have direct physiologic actions within the body.  Click here to see IIN's Circle of Life and rate what areas in your life might need attention.
