Digestion


Excellent health all starts with excellent absorption and elimination.


Pain, cramping, bloating, burping, allergies, weight issues, constipation, diarrhea, skin conditions, depression, anxiety, and low energy are all tied in with something you may not expect – your digestion. These symptoms, left unaddressed, can lead to more serious illnesses like IBS, Crohns, Fibromyalgia, Dementia, Cancer and more. Trust me, being diagnosed at 5 years old with UC, I've learned how to listen to my body - I've been symptom free for more than 15 years. My goal is to help you get there too! 

Your body is built to repair itself, but it needs to properly detox and have the ability to uptake quality nutrients.

For thousands of years Traditional Chinese Medicine has used food as medicine and herbs to nourish the body and boost the immune system. During my integrative nutrition program I will provide you with a closer look at the foods to nourish and balance your individual body, relieve discomfort, and prevent serious illness before it occurs.

Are you ready to learn which foods can help reduce stress, lower inflammation, and promote digestive healing and proper gut function? 


Plan, Organize, Shop, Cook! I will take through a 3 step track plan.

Track 1 - is where we start with the foundation of what foods are best for you to eat and what you should avoid.

Track 2 - involves the exclusion process pertaining specifically to gut irritants: these range from alcohol, to caffeine, sodas, juice drinks, energy drinks, “sugar-free” products.

Track 3 - we explore supplement support, it’s extremely important to start one new supplement at a time. Depending on your current regimen, we’ll explore what  GI therapeutic supplements will best work for you. These commonly range from digestive enzymes, to probiotics, medical foods (protein + nutrients powder), magnesium citrate and GI repair formulas (l-glutamine, DGL, slippery elm,).
