What are we supposed to eat?!

From fad diets to fabulous food photos, we are inundated with myriads of ideas about nutrition and food. 

 

Should we go low-fat, high carb... or high-fat, low carb? Keto? Paleo? Plant-based? What’s the deal with dairy and gluten? Does celery juice hold all the answers? Will fasting make me live longer?

 

It’s enough to make a person give up and grab some cereal and milk for dinner! 

Functional, holistic nutrition

Functional, holistic nutrition considers the whole person-- body, mind and spirit-- while also addressing various root causes of nutritional imbalances. 

 

This includes not just the food you eat, but also your daily activities, the type of work you do, current stress levels, your family history, environmental exposures, genetics and more.

 

While you can eat your greens, hit the gym, and take some vitamins, you may not get the desired benefits if you are working at a high stress job, eating in your car, exposed to toxic chemicals, or eating the wrong healthy foods for your body. Functional, holistic nutrition slows down to consider all pieces of the puzzle and this site is here to support you in this discovery.

21st Century Wellness

Let's face it. It's the 21st century. We are all stressed, we are all exposed to toxins, and none of us have enough time. This is compounded by a pandemic that has rocked the entire planet!

 

If that weren't enough, chronic diseases of our century have been piling up like hotcakes (pardon the pun): diabetes, heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, Lyme Disease, autoimmunity, hormone imbalances, infertility-- the list goes on and on. 

 

Taking charge of our health is now more crucial than ever to survival on this planet! Food is a powerful starting point that anyone can address at anytime no matter where they are at in their health journey.

Our bodies have been designed with an incredible capacity for survival and regeneration.
