Feel Good Nutrition2

Every individual is unique and has special needs, desires and goals. What we all have in common though, is that at the root of each and every goal, is the desire to feel better. The only reason we ever want whatever it is that we want (a new job, new relationship, more money or weight loss) is because we believe we will feel better in the having of it.  In my world, the goal I hear most often is weight loss to "be healthy" or to "feel better". Many people try achieving this in a way that is restrictive, unpleasant and miserable! Sounds kind of backwards huh? The "Feel Good Approach" take emphasis off of weight loss and shifts the focus to making healthy behavior changes. By focusing on other measures of health such as sleep, energy, digestion and mood, we can improve all aspects of health while feeling good in the process.   The feel good approach provides accountability, consistency and structure. It's been proven that it takes 66 days to make lasting behavior change. That's where my 3-month programs come in. Whether you need a lifestyle reboot, guidance for athletic performance, or are looking to ease symptoms of anxiety, depression or other mental illnesses, you're only 66 days away from an improved you!

LEAP / MRT FOOD SENSITIVITY TESTING

Is your food making you sick? Do you suffer from:

Weight Imbalances

Autism/ADD/Anxiety/Depression

Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Migraine & Other Headaches

Heartburn/GERD

Arthritis

Eczema/Hives

You may have a sensitivity to something you are eating. You could be following the “perfect diet” eating super “clean” but if you are consuming foods you are intolerant to, you will continue to be inflamed and will likely not get the health outcomes you are looking for. Adverse reactions to foods and food-chemicals can cause subclinical and clinical inflammation and can play a role in many common illnesses:

  • Gastrointestinal Issues: IBS, Crohn’s, microscopic colitis, ulcerative colitis, GERD, cyclical vomiting syndrome

  • Neurological Issues: Migraines, depression, insomnia, ADD/ADHD, autism spectrum disorders, epilepsy

  • Endocrine Issues: Type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, obesity

  • Musculoskeletal Issues:, Chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, inflammatory arthritis

  • Dermatological: Eczema, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis

  • Gynecological: Polycystic ovarian syndrome

  • Urological: Interstitial Cystitis

Using a blood test known as the Mediator Release Test, we can determine which foods you may be reacting to and design a personalize program to reduce inflammation and heal your body from the inside out. For more information about testing, please visit the contact page.
