My Think Outside the Box Approach
Much of how we perceive and tend to health in our culture isn't working. Two-thirds of us are overweight, and many of us are addicted to junk food, sleep deprived, sedentary, chronically stressed, lonely or disconnected from others, and out of touch with what matters most. Sarah learned with her son's emotional distress and behavioral challenges and Tash with her Hashimoto's Thyroiditis that we need to “think outside the box” if we really want to make a difference in our health.
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 believe 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.
