What we're about
This is a group for anyone in Bucks County, PA and surrounding areas that is interested in learning more about how a real whole food diet, exercise and lifestyle changes can make a positive impact on their health.
I have found that people are struggling despite their best efforts to resolve chronic health and digestive issues. If you're tired of the band aid approach and want guidance and support for exploring the root cause of the symptoms you are suffering from, then I invite you to be a part of this dynamic group. What you "eat" is important, but what you "digest" is even more important. When it comes to nutrition, it is not a "one size fits all" diet but rather discovering which dietary approach works best for you and your individual needs. I invite you to explore more on what foods and lifestyle behaviors are feeding your illnesses and disease.
"All disease begins in the gut" - Hippocrates
Notice he didn't say "some." I believe the gut is the first place to start healing in the body and it's where I started with myself and where I start with all the clients in my practice. As a Functional Nutrition Health Coach I work to educate people on looking at all the systems in their body and using the symptoms they are experiencing to help us identify imbalances. What is your body trying to tell you?
What can you expect as a member of this group?
Classes, group sessions and workshops will focus on:
• clean eating and paleo program
• seasonal cleanses and detoxes
• learning how to become your own best health detective by learning to understand what your symptoms are telling you
• establishing achievable health goals
• detoxing your products in your home that may be negatively affecting your health and
• learning self care techniques that will support and lift the burden off your body so real healing can begin
I am a Functional Nutrition Health Coach as well as an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach. I have been on my own healing journey for the last 10 years from several autoimmune conditions (celiac, psoriasis, lyme) as well as healing from leaky gut, candida, chronic food allergies and migraines. It took me many years, and extensive searches and visits with doctors and holistic health practitioners (naturopaths, integrative M.D.s, acupuncturists, health counselors, energy healers) to get a more clearer diagnosis and understanding of all the factors contributing to my health struggles. I have an insatiable appetite when it comes to reading and learning about nutrition and love helping clients explore natural approaches to health, detoxification, and organic eating. After graduating from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, I was inspired to continue to my learning through Functional Diagnostic Nutrition, Holistic Nutrition Labs, and the Bioindividual Nutrition Institute as well as studying several courses on leaky gut, candida and environmental toxins, and I regularly attend nutritional summits to expand on my knowledge and the latest advances in natural treatments.
My goal for this group is to be an educator, facilitator and resource for people seeking whole food and natural approaches to health. I believe we become extremely powerful and accountable in reaching our health goals when we are surrounded by liked minded individuals willing to share their experiences and encouragement. In addition to offering group support, I am available for individual counseling. I invite you to nourish yourself in a way that makes you feel good and do so by choosing health and happiness.
