A Health Coach is a knowledgeable adviser who provides ongoing support and guidance as you set goals and make sustainable changes that improve your health and happiness. As your Health Coach, I will listen carefully and help you to navigate the world of contradictory nutrition advice to determine what changes are necessary for you.
I practice a holistic approach to health and wellness, which means I look at how all areas of your life are connected. Does stress at your work 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 different aspects of your life affect your health and well being and how we can bring out a desirable change by addressing these different parts of your life for you to have a strong foundation.
Here are some concepts that we will explore during our work together:
Bio-individuality™: The concept of bio-individuality is that each person has unique food and lifestyle needs, and the body knows what to eat. We tend not to listen to the bodies signals like discomfort and food cravings, and are stuck in our brain over-analyzing the latest trends among diets. Remember one person’s food can be another person’s poison. Working on the principle of bio-individuality, I will support you to make positive changes that are based on your unique needs, lifestyle, preferences, and ancestral background. I use a personalized, holistic approach to ensure that you will have great success!
Primary Food™: It is easy to overlook all of the things that contribute to our sense of nourishment and fulfillment. It is not just the food we eat, 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.
Integrative Nutrition Plate™: The 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 and teach you how to find what's healthiest for your unique body !
