Many common chronic conditions have a primary nutritional and/or toxin imbalance as a root cause. When lifestyle changes (and if necessary nutritional supplementation) are incorporated, our clients experience a significant recovery with chronic health conditions.
Rather than a one-size-fits-all approach to diet and nutritional guidance, holistic nutrition and health counseling understands metabolism is as unique as your fingerprint and varies at different times in one’s life. We tailor lifestyle programs to fit your body’s needs and never encourage “fad diets” as long-term success is better achieved when permanent healthy habits are incorporated into your regular routine. It’s not about counting calories or “points,” it’s about eating nutrient dense, naturally colorful foods that are higher quality.
The proteins, fats, and carbohydrates that you eat are fuel for your physical engine. The vitamins and minerals are its spark plugs. You need both high quality fuel and the ability to “fire on all cylinders” in order to achieve optimal health. An automobile can run with misfiring spark plugs, but for how long and how well? How fast and efficiently can it respond to an emergency demand for more power? The stress of living in our fast-paced world demands that kind of emergency power for our bodies on a daily basis.
Think of other nutrients as protecting agents. Just as your car has additives and devices that protect the body, engine, and driver, nutrients serve to protect your heart, brain, and other critical organs. Just as a car’s gauges warn the driver of potential problems, your body has certain chemical indicators that can alert you to potential problems. Early warnings can help you make diet and lifestyle changes that may both extend your life and enhance your quality of life.
