You are not just what you eat, you are what you absorb and digest. Poor digestion and bad eating habits can lead to skin conditions, allergies, weight gain, immune issues, anxiety, and depression, among other diseases. Hippocrates, known as the father of medicine, was the first to say “all disease begins in the gut”. Many years later, new studies urge us to consider how the health of our gut and gut bacteria are fundamental to physical and mental health. We now know that all disease has roots in inflammation, and that diet has the greatest influence on the level of inflammation in our bodies.  For most of our time on this planet, humans followed an ancestral whole-foods diet. Our bodies haven’t evolved at the rate technology has and are struggling to thrive on the processed diet our great grandparents wouldn’t recognize. Meanwhile, the volume and range of conflicting information regarding nutrition is often overwhelming and confusing.

Holistic nutrition is an educational practice, guiding participants to make simple shifts with profound changes to energy, mood, focus, and overall quality of life. After translating messages from the body, changes are made by suggesting ways to make meal alterations, increase nutrient density, eliminate inflammatory and allergenic foods, balance blood sugar, supplement wisely, and alter lifestyle habits. Simple explanations of digestive processes inspire the client to take these steps, empowering them to take an active role in their health, and arming them with the ability to make choices that suit the unique needs of their body, mind, and spirit.
