Food can help your body heal

Micro-nutrients impact our biochemistry and physiology at a molecular level, which means good nutrition is critical for the body to run well. Food can also be incredibly healing or terribly damaging. I will share the science and research as well as the recipes and success stories to guide you and support you in the complicated, and often contradictory world of food and nutrition.

Information is power

I love data. Data allows me to identify where the body’s mechanisms are not working optimally. Often there are gentle solutions to restore balance. The human body is a set of intricate and complex systems. Each body is unique and is best treated individually. I will help you identify important data you should be looking at in your own body and provide the tools as well as the science to support optimal health.

Detoxifying can improve health

Toxins can build up in the body and lead to multiple health problems. Toxins affect your immune, cardiovascular, muscular, neurological, hormonal, skeletal and digestive systems. Toxins exist in the products we use, the environment, our buildings, and in our food. I’ll show you how to lessen your toxic load, detoxify your body, and improve your health.

Genetics can be a powerful health tool

Gene expression is influenced by food, environmental factors, supplements, and exercise. With the knowledge and the right tools, we have the ability to shift our cellular function and prevent illnesses. Genetic testing is an important tool in helping my patients. I will share what testing I feel is valuable and what you can do to mitigate your risks.
