Nourished Path – Where Functional Nutrition Meets Mind, Body & Spirit.
This is your time…
As we move through life, our priorities, needs and our sense of Self changes.
Some of us feel stuck, burned out or lost – some take big leaps, create new opportunities – maybe we have more time and money (maybe we don’t).
Our work priorities and social interactions start shifting. And, of course, our bodies change along the way too.
Depending on how well we balanced all the demands we took on in our early years, we may have lots of catching up to do with ourselves.
For some, new health challenges pop up out of nowhere. Where we used to be able to eat whatever we wanted (I never could) and party all night (I could and I did), we now realize if/when we do go overboard, we’re gonna pay for it – and not just the next day, but many days (or months – maybe even years) afterward.
We may feel frumpy, unattractive and start hiding ourselves socially and in pictures. We could be experiencing unusual symptoms, weight gain, fatigue, depression, anxiety or all of the above.
Our old tried and true tricks to snap us back no longer work.
But these are all gifts in a way – signals that something has to change in a more meaningful way.
As a nutritionist, many clients come to me wanting a diet, meal plan or recipe ideas.
Sure, I have all those resources in my arsenal, but honestly, you could Google all that.
What I want to help you uncover is more of YOU – the real you, before the soul sucking job/relationship/insert burden here, the patterns, all the fake foods, the meds, the messy house, peri-menopause, family demands and all of life’s other challenges took you over.
You’re too young to be old. You’re eating too well to be fat or not feel great…
But here’s the thing…FOOD is rarely the solution on it’s own – nor is FOOD the enemy.
I offer an integrated approach when it comes to helping you feel and be your best – with boundless energy, creativity, confidence and spark.
This is where my heart is called to serve.
We’ll tackle the functional imbalances and all the nutrition stuff too, of course. I’m a nutritionist after-all. 🙂 We’ll start with troubleshooting what you’re eating, identifying your unique carbohydrate tolerance and ideal macronutrient balance, your food flow, improving liver, gut, adrenal and thyroid function and hormonal balancing.
These are the things my brain absolutely loves.
Just a few words about weight loss (if that’s on your mind). I’m all for finding your ideal body composition in a balanced way so that you feel and function better. We all want to feel and move comfortably in our own skin. But we must go beyond all the diet dogma, calories in-calories out, and body image dysmorphia that exists today. I still fall for it and struggle with it myself, believe me, but I’m way better than I used to be.
The key point to understand is that body weight issues are a sign of an imbalance – either functional, genetic, behavioral or emotional – or all of the above.
Address these issues – with all the tools we have to offer – like real food, nutrient diversity, genetic testing, functional detox, gut healing, hormone balancing, lifestyle changes, mindfulness, self love and/or just talking it all through – and you’ll find that the weight starts to shift in the right direction.
It’s not a quick fix like the latest diet trend, but it’s truly empowering, deep and sustainable.
We only have a finite amount of time on this planet and we should NOT be wasting this precious time on self shaming, obsessive dieting and feeling ‘meh.
This is YOUR time.
Let’s get to the root… the real you – maybe with your genetics – your functional status AND your beliefs (which drive your behaviors) and finally, FINALLY – be who we’re meant to be.
Yes, I said WE. I’m on this journey too – right along with you.
Together, we identify, uncover and expose what’s been hidden to reveal the light that is really YOU.
Are you ready?
I can’t wait to work with you!
In love and health,
