“If you don’t care for your body, where will you live…”

Naturopathy is the oldest form of healing since the beginning of time.  It is using nature to heal.   The goal is to rid the body of toxins, address deficiencies, ignite the body’s healing capabilities, and to get to the root of the problem and what is causing the disharmony.  

What’s most important to know is that Naturopathy belongs to the people.  It’s here for each and every one of you.  It’s using God’s given tools – clean food, water, air, sunlight, supplements, herbs, proper sleep, rest, emotional and spiritual guidance to support your healing. There is no quick fix.  It is an investment in yourself. 

Science: What Is Nutrition Therapy?

Hippocrates explains Nutrition Therapy by using “Food as thy Medicine, and Medicine as thy Food”. Since food has the power to both hurt and heal the body, a therapeutic diet can make all the difference. Nutrition Therapy has the ability to return people to their optimum state of health, naturally.  This holistic, whole-foods approach, which has been practiced for centuries, can now benefit from today’s western medicine and science to support these theories. The body is designed to heal itself, but it needs the right nutrients to get to the core of the problem.

Spirit: Remembering That Our Body Is Our Temple!

Our body is our temple – it houses our spirit, which is our connection to God.  For that very reason, we need to care for our bodies, as well as our souls. What we put in our body should reflect this very concept (as best we can while living in this world).  Eating what I would call “godless” food can contribute to dis-ease.  Conversely, eating unencumbered, untainted foods from this earth (truly a gift), are the vehicles that can bring forth God’s healing energy and deposit them directly into our temples.

NOTE: While our body is our temple, healing first begins in the Spirit.  Something must shift there as well.  So while we will address the physical, tactical and scientific changes needed, please know an internal shift needs to be a priority, either privately or with some guidance that we can discuss. This could equate to even a small, subtle shift, or maybe it is a life changing realization… it can simply be a shift in Truth & Faith.  But just know that this needs to happen in as well.

Where Nutrition is Today?

In this world, just about every other conversation centers around various ailments – childhood allergies, digestive problems, hormonal imbalance, auto-immune diseases, ADHD, chronic skin conditions, continual weigh gain, obesity, diabetes, chronic fatigue and more. 

Our culture eats on the go, out of convenience and on ingrained, habitual motivations. We are separated from what is real, true and healthy.  Marketing has overridden our instincts.  Over-consumption and malnutrition (despite the abundance of food) contribute significantly to today’s national crisis. It’s time to take it back.

Education is key to making the fundamental change that this world needs, and health is at the center of this change.

Together, we will develop a holistic nutritional program customized to your bio-individuality.  Also, if it makes sense, we can address the spiritual component as well.  Our body is our temple, so to consider our entire being – body, mind, soul & environmental influences – is critical to healing..

“Give a man a fish and you have fed him for today. Teach a man to fish and you have fed him for a lifetime.”  This is what I aim to do, but ultimately your success is based on your honest dedication and commitment… and my job is to help educate and guide you on your path toward holistic health.

My personal story is a combination of both science and spirit.  As a child I have always been connected to my intuition – I have made decisions that may not always have made sense – even to me – but I have always honored the little voice within.  I can confidently say that every single time my intuition has guided me appropriately.  It has never failed me.

I am a huge believer in life being a place to learn and to grow – grow our minds, bodies & our spirits.  That said, we go through challenges that test all three (3) along the way.  It is important to have support to help guide you through your challenges.  I personally have had many, many teachers along my journey, and this is how we all help each other to move forward and progress through this lifetime.

If you choose to work with me, we will address your body first from a scientific based, biological perspective.  This is to ensure customized knowledge transfer, as per your ailments and complaints.  However coupling this with intuition ensures that we work toward identifying the root cause.  Our intuitions will always help guide us toward true healing.
