I am a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, Certified Functional Nutritionist, 21 Day Sugar Detox Coach and a Certified Keto Coach. I also hold certifications in the Paleo Diet, Eat To Perform and additional education & experience with hormone balance and paediatric nutrition. I'm also a CrossFit coach who runs a CrossFit-Method Training gym, X.Fit Junction, at my home with another trainer. I live with my husband, 3 boys and 2 dogs, that keep me on my toes every day. I have learned over the years that a good diet, along with some fun, exercise and some down time are key to balancing a busy life in today's world.
I endeavour to look at your current state of health, including your diet, exercise & lifestyle routine, and I will device a plan to optimize all of these aspects to advance your state of health and well-being for now, and the future. Each of these components intertwine and working on all of them, will result in a greater you.
MY VARIOUS PROJECTS/COUNSELLING THAT I OFFER IS MORE DETAILED IF YOU SCROLL DOWN
I do promote ancestral methods towards achieving health and well-being for several reasons. It's anti-inflammatory, it's energizing, well-balanced and ultimately... because it works. Every disease stems from inflammation, so taking that away will benefit you in every aspect of your life. Everyone is unique, so I look at what works for you. I've been following and studying these methods for over a decade now and the results are outstanding. The proof is in the chocolate avocado pudding!
I have to say this is probably my favourite subject! I could talk food all day long, but I'll try to keep this short...I promise. I am passionate about our daily diet being around whole foods. (And before I go further, I refer to diet as what we eat at each meal, not as in a 'fad diet' where we're restricting calories.) I can't say enough of about sourcing most, if not all, of your food locally. Research what Farmer's Markets and CSA Farms are in your area, or contact me and I can hook you up with some. Food is the basis of your health. It comes down to the old saying 'You are what you eat'. Literally every cell in our body is made up from elements of our food, so healthy food=healthy cells. I can help you navigate through grocery stores, what's in your pantry/fridge at home and help you budget your food costs. It doesn't have to be expensive to eat healthy.
This is one of my goals in life...to get people moving. I have a hard time when I see adults, and children, with weight and health issues not getting up and doing something. It doesn't mean you have to go out and run a marathon, it can be as simple as a short walk each day. I encourage people to incorporate some level of strength work which can be adapted to any age or capability. It builds muscle that keeps us strong to perform daily living functions, it makes us feel better mentally, strengthens our heart muscle keeping us pumping (and alive!), and a host of other benefits including bone density, range of motion, increased confidence, oh, and I almost forgot...fat loss!
To move towards a healthier you, you need to look at all aspects of your life. This entails your daily diet, exercise/movement, sleep, stress management, daily responsibilities and good old fun. This is unique to each individual and forever changing, as new challenges arise and as you enter new stages of your life. I'll work on finding that balance by looking at all of those aspects of your life and incorporating strategies to optimize your health and well-being.
