I have always wanted to be in a helping profession and I picked Nutrition back when it was still pretty much in the infancy of its scientific development. Unfortunately for me, the cutting edge scientific knowledge of the day (early-mid 80's) was decidedly aimed at low fat, low cholesterol interventions being the savior of us all. How we went so dramatically wrong is the subject of many books, articles, podcasts and videos, but the medical establishment , like the Titanic, takes time to turn around.
I, on the other hand, can turn on a dime, and so decided to establish a private practice and wellness coaching service that focuses on taking control of our lives and our health, using real foods and a low carbohydrate, high healthy fat approach.
I have been a Registered Dietitian for 32 years, but have just recently added to that knowledge base by completing the Primal Health Coach Certification, an indepth course that explores all the facets of a lifestyle based on Ancestral Health principles. The changes that can be experienced by using this lower carb, high fat, whole foods based approach are nothing short of spectacular and I have a passion to share these strategies with others. After three decades of being only marginally successful at helping others to improve their health, I now have the knowledge and tools to transform my client's lives - and I am seeing it every day.
LIke the trillium pictured here, the provincial flower of my home province of Ontario Canada, there are three main components of health. The first is Nutrition or Nourishment, how we choose to fuel our wondrous physical body. The second is Movement, otherwise known as Activity or Exercise, but those terms are rather limiting. The third is Spirit, taking care of our emotions, thoughts, our approach to rest, sleep, stress management. All of these parts contribute to overall health. And all are addressed in the programs of my practice.
Strength, Balance, Joy - my touchstone words and my goals - for myself and for my clients.
