Restoring Your Health… One Bite at a Time

By  0 Comments

Is the food you eat making you sick? Many people have food intolerances and sensitivities that are making them ill and they don’t even know it.

I am very passionate about teaching clients how to use Food as Medicine.

My personal journey from severe gastric illness to recovery created an inherent understanding … “that what you eat really matters for daily and long-term health.”  Nutrition that will help you heal from chronic illness will also benefit your overall health.  This type of healthy eating is good for everyone.

I recovered from severe ulcerative colitis by drastically changing my diet and eliminating the foods my body couldn’t digest. This was after two years with standard forms of medical treatment and being told time and again that food had nothing to do with my digestive disease. When more drugs and surgery were the only options left, I decided to try diet therapy to treat my disease. By focusing exclusively on diet therapy and lifestyle changes, I have been in remission for ten years.

“When I’m done working with clients, I hope to leave them with good health and the ability to be an advocate for their own well-being. I encourage clients to ask questions, do their own research, and understand all of their options so they can make an informed decision about medical care. Take the time to find doctors and practitioners who will be on your wellness team. I educate clients about real, whole food and teach them how to incorporate good nutrition into their daily diets.” ■
