THE MOST INTIMATE RELATIONSHIP THAT YOU WILL HAVE IN YOUR LIFETIME IS
THE RELATIONSHIP YOU HAVE WITH FOOD
CHANGING WHAT, WHEN, AND HOW YOU EAT CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE
WHAT IS A HOLISTIC HEALTH COUNSELOR?
A holistic health counselor is a practitioner that listens to YOU
and teaches you to listen to the wisdom of
YOUR body and its needs. I utilize a mind, body, and spirit
approach in guiding you on your path to wellness.
Together we will introduce healthier food choices slowly but steadily
to encourage the formation of positive
eating habits. We will learn about the TRANSFORMATIVE EFFECTS OF FOOD
and how what you eat
affects your future cellular development, tissue, skin, and other organs,
as well as its influence on your thoughts,
emotions, and behavioral patterns.
HOW DO I DIFFER FROM A TRADITIONAL NUTRITIONIST OR DIETICIAN?
I differ from traditional nutritionists and dieticians in that I also encourage my
clients primary food needs. Primary food needs include other things besides actual
foods that feed us. These include relationships, careers, exercise, hobbies, etc. Like a
traditional nutritionist or dietician I encourage my clients to eat a healthy ratio of proteins,
carbohydrates, and healthy fats. I encourage clients to eat less junk- foods, processed foods,
and to reduce their salt and sugar intake. I refer to these foods as secondary foods. These
include cigarettes and alcohol (anything taken by mouth).
Usually when either primary or secondary food needs are not being sufficiently met there
is an imbalance in the other food. Both primary and secondary foods can add to or detract
from the energy that our bodies require to physically and mentally perform their daily tasks.
Holistic health counseling can bring balance to all of your food needs and give you more
energy in your daily life. Let's work together to develop a customized eating plan
specifically for you that is health supportive and gives you lasting energy.
