When did being HEALTHY get so… confusing?

With all the contradictory THEORIES out there

it’s no wonder we find ourselves OVERWHELMED + CONFLICTED about NUTRITION.

Raising babies gives us PLENTY to think about!

Whether your journey has just begun or your children are ALL GROWN UP,

The last thing you need is something else to WORRY about.

Mama, I’ve got you covered!

WHAT IS A HOLISTIC NUTRITIONIST?

I’m so happy to be apart of a health movement that lends itself beautifully to a more traditional model for healthy living; a Holistic Nutritionist is a style of practitioner inspired by a concept really, who places central emphasis on health being multi-layered & unique to every individual.

In order to help restore balance & initiate healing with my clients, I consider many influencing factors such as nutrition, lifestyle, daily habits, as well as mental & emotional considerations.  I also aim to seek out the root cause of any condition which will encourage healing on a much deeper level.

DO YOU USE OTHER TYPES OF NATURAL REMEDIES IN YOUR PRACTICE?

Yes I do.  My formal training & two certifications are in Holistic Nutrition however I’ve pursued extensive studies & mentorship in Professional Supplementation, Homeopathy, Herbology, Natural Home Care for Kids, Healthy Home Considerations & a number of other traditional healing modalities.  I compliment my Nutrition Plans with any of the above when appropriate.

Certainly when the needs of my clients are out of my scope of care, I have no hesitation referring them to other qualified health care providers – this is why I love working at a collaborative Naturopathic Clinic!  It takes a village & I’m proud to be apart of a such an extraordinary team!

WHY ARE TWO VISITS IMPORTANT FOR PRENATAL & CHILDREN'S CONSULTATIONS?

Great question!  My practice was born out of a holistic model of care therefor I believe it is in the best interest of my clients to complete a thorough intake during our first visit.  I’ve been trained to approach wellness & healing by looking at the whole individual & also to seek out the underlying cause of conditions or symptoms.  Sometimes this takes some detective work!

After the first visit, I customize all my recommendations accordingly. And because I believe strongly in education, my health plans are comprehensive & rather detailed which I couldn’t possibly fit into one visit.  Although there are certainly parallels between clients, I do not believe in generalizing health into a ‘one-size-fits-all’ category.

DO YOU MAKE RECOMMENDATIONS ON THE FIRST VISIT?

Yes absolutely although it looks different for each person & depends on the immediate needs of the client.  There are certainly circumstances where we get started right away!  The bulk of your Nutrition + Health Plan however, is provided during the second visit.
