Wellness Philosophy


…sticking to it and living it everyday in your own way!

Doctors are reporting that 70-80% of patient visits are due to lifestyle-related issues.

The average doctor has 8 minutes to meet with each patient. Our health care system doesn’t allow doctors to deal with these issues easily. After suffering my own health crash and learning how to heal my body with food and lifestyle changes, I know just how powerful a self-management approach to wellness can be.

I practice a holistic approach to health and wellness.

This means that I look at how all areas of your life are connected as a whole. Does stress at your job or in your relationship cause you to overeat? Does lack of sleep or low energy prevent you from exercising?

My approach is not to dwell on calories, carbs, fats, and proteins.

It is not to create lists of restrictions or good and bad foods. Instead, I work with my clients to create a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and rewarding.

Together we’ll work to reach your health goals in areas such as achieving optimal weight, reducing food cravings, increasing sleep, and maximizing energy. You’ll develop a deeper understanding of the food and lifestyle choices that work best for you, and implement lasting changes that will improve your energy, balance and health.

BioIndividuality™ *

The concept of bio-individuality is that each person has unique food and lifestyle needs. One person’s food is another person’s poison, and that’s why fad diets tend to fail in the long run. Working on the principle of bio-individuality, I’ll 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’s easy to overlook all of the things that contribute to our sense of nourishment and fulfillment…not just the food we eat, but all of the other factors present in our daily lives, such as healthy relationships, a fulfilling career, regular physical activity, and a spiritual awareness. All of these 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.

Lifestyling Wellness™
It’s not a deprivation fad or some diet du jour

It is a choice to eat a healthier meal or snack, or take a hydration break

To squeeze in physical activity – even if only to simply run a flight of stairs vs. taking the elevator.

Or to pause your day for a few moments, breathe deeply and be grateful before jumping back into the fray.
