My perspective on health has been inspired by my experience healing my two-year-old son, who struggled with behavioral issues, emotional outbursts, and severely interrupted sleep. After failed attempts to resolve these issues within the conventional medical system, they were ultimately eliminated with dietary modifications and balancing the micro-flora in his digestive system. I learned that we need to “think outside the box” if we really want to make a difference in our own health, as well as the declining health of our country.
I believe that decreasing chronic inflammation, balancing micro-flora, improving immune health, and increasing consumption of “real” foods will significantly improve your day-to-day life and may even save your life. My “think outside the box” tagline highlights my whole health approach.
Health is much broader than food and exercise. Meaningful work, healthy relationships, regular physical activity, adequate sleep, and connection to our spirit are fundamental aspects of health—and all these factors literally impact us on a physical level.
My focus on eating real food encourages people to think outside the box, bag, or package when making decisions on what to eat. I think it is more important to put attention on the quality of the food we eat rather than on calorie counting and cutting out fat.
I know that there is no cookie cutter recipe for every person’s health. One person’s medicine might be another’s poison. I also know that information is critical, but most people require one-on-one support and guidance to actually experience transformation and life-long change. I love supporting, inspiring, informing, and encouraging clients to take information and make it applicable to their individual lives—the most challenging part of change. As a health coach, I support individuals in healing their bodies and feeling great in a manner that is life-lasting.
