I’m currently studying Integrative Nutrition at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition where I’m learning innovative coaching methods, practical lifestyle management techniques, and over 100 dietary theories, from Ayurveda, gluten-free, Paleo, vegan, macrobiotics, and everything in between.
During our sessions we will use some of the following tools and strategies to help you discover your best self:
Primary Food: It’s easy to overlook all of the things that contribute to our sense of nourishment and fulfilment. It’s not just the food we eat that affects our health, 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.
Bio-IINndividuality: is the idea that each of us 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.
Crowding Out: Many nutrition experts give their clients a list of foods to avoid and foods to eat, which explains why so many people are turned off by nutrition. My approach is different – by eating and drinking foods that are good for you, you will naturally have less room and desire for unhealthy foods. Simply put, you will crowd out the unhealthy food in your diet. This takes a little practice to make happen, but I will support you along the way.
Deconstructing Cravings: Cravings play a critical role in understanding what your body needs and shouldn’t be ignored. When you learn how to deconstruct your cravings and understand what they’re really telling you, you will be able to reclaim a sense of balance and harmony.
I’m privileged to be learning from some of the world’s top health and wellness experts including; Joshua Rosenthal, founder and director of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, Deepak Chopra, leader in the field of mind-body medicine, David Wolfe, raw food leader and nutrition expert, Marion Nestle, professor at New York University’s Department of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health and Mark Bittman, food writer for The New York Times and bestselling author.
This training is preparing me with extensive knowledge in the world of holistic nutrition, health coaching, and prevention. I’ll work with you to help you adopt lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results. You will develop a deeper understanding of the food and lifestyle choices that work best for you, improving your energy, balance, health, and happiness. Together we will bring balance to the important elements of your life such as love, relationships, fitness as well as career and money.
By implementing one small change at a time, you’ll be living a life you’ll love in no time.
