I love sharing the power of nutrition!
I enjoy taking complex information about nutrition and our bodies and packaging it in a way that is valuable in the real world. I created Nourish U Cafe as a fun way to do just this, while also providing nutrition products and tools.
I am personally reaping the benefits of nutrition - in a nutshell, I have prevented type 2 diabetes in spite of my statistics being stacked against me, I have corrected my micro-nutrient deficiencies resulting in more energy and less illness, and I have learned to manage my daughter's chronic hives through food sensitivity testing and eating. I have also had the pleasure of helping clients reduce their pain level, lose weight, reduce the severity of colds, improve sleep, improve blood flow, improve energy, reverse type 2 diabetes, and recover from adverse drug reactions.
Nutrition has not always been a part of my life, so I know what it takes to transform a lifestyle. I actually began yoyo dieting in high school and have had a weakness for unhealthy restaurants and sugar my entire life. Still, I was blessed with genetics that allowed me to feel good even though I was not treating my body kindly. As I got older and met more people who were suffering I began wondering about what our differences were and how health could be influenced (not to mention that my lifestyle had started catching up with me too).
When I had my first child, I was no longer content with wondering – I wanted some guaranteed success in helping my child be healthy. I began researching nutrition and learning how to improve health. Unfortunately, as you probably well know, there is a lot of conflicting and misleading information out there. I went down some unhealthy paths and did some more yoyo dieting. Four years into this journey I was blessed with the amazing opportunity of going back to school and learning about nutrition from the ground up (literally, since that’s where the nutrients come from). I learned about Evidence-Based Nutrition and how to research trends in order to find out if they are legitimate.
As I learned about the power of nutrition, I also began noticing just how many people I know and love are suffering from conditions that can be improved through nutrition. So after graduation, I decided to take a chance and design a private practice directed at helping individuals feel better.
I have found that it is not about looking better for most of my clients (although we all enjoy that added benefit). It is about having more energy, reducing symptoms, reducing medications, and preventing disease. My clients want to have enough energy and strength to take care of and play with their loved ones. And we all want to enjoy the journey and food along the way.
