You will have a clear picture of why your body is not working as efficiently as it could. If you are looking for a pro-active approach to health and wellness, you have come to the right place. Often our society lives in a re-active mindset, though we can and should live in a pro-active mindset. Continuously improving our health is the key to achieving as much of a quality state of life as possible. We will review our findings step by step so you have clear plan of action. You will become educated about your body and the systems within it. How they function, how they dysfunction, and why. We believe that for positive change to occur, one must be educated about the importance of that change. I adhere to the practices of the Nutritional Therapy Association. This foundational approach toward health and wellness will improve your eating habits and educate you on your body’s needs. The by-product of a pro-active approach is that you will naturally have more energy on a consistent basis rather than spikes of energy throughout your day. You will begin to feel and see a healthier you. Usually a by-product of this program will be a sense of empowerment about your choices of food, products and your approach to wellness. Also, we will work together to achieve many of your health goals, including weight management. I will design a temporary supplemental plan if we see that you are not getting something you may need directly from your diet. The goal is to eat foods that the body uses for fuel and to use that fuel to achieve the things that take energy, being everything you do. Our consultation will be 2-3 visits. The first is you and I getting to know each other and discuss my findings from the paperwork you will fill out before our consultation. Then we will come up with a plan that suits your needs and comfort level for a specific amount of time, generally 1-3 months. We will meet for a follow-up appointment to review all of your results and progress. We can at that time decide what is working best and if it is time to create a maintenance plan for you.
Certified Healing Food Specialist Program (CHFS) Grocery Store Readiness
I have my certification as a Healing Food Specialist which means that I work one on one with my clients in several areas of there lives, which is extremely helpful because you can choose how in-depth you would like our consultation to be: 1-Personal Tutorial on product use, food storage & consumption, and oils storage & consumption. We can teach you how to stock your shelves, creating an easy and successful plan for efficient dietary intake. For example, do you stock the snacks at eye level? What you see first, you eat first. Where do you store your oil? Temperature for different types of oils is extremely important to consumption. 2-Personal Shopping experience. I will take you shopping and teach you how to make smart shopping decisions based on a healthy nutritionally-dense diet and your personal needs. You will be amazed how easy it is to buy the right things when you know what they are and how to navigate around a supermarket. It will also amaze you how much money you will save in the process! Eating healthy is a lifestyle choice and may not always come as cheap but I can teach you how to get the best prices in general and how to utilize your food properly. For example, if you generally pay $2.00 for a carton of eggs and you are not getting the nutrients from them, you have wasted $2.00. Though, if you pay $3.00 or $4.00 for a carton of eggs and you are ingesting the proper nutrients then you have spent your money wisely. Saving $1.00 just to save it and not getting what your body needs is not a bargain in my book. I want to teach you how to maximize your dollars and get the most from your food. This also includes how to read food & merchandise labels properly and what to look for. You will be able to walk through a supermarket, farmers market or wherever you will shop with a great sense of empowerment and knowledge.

Often weight is a by-product of a dysfunction or dysregulation within the body. Once it is properly addressed the weight will correct itself to an extent on its own. First Wholistic does offer a weight management program, though I feel strongly that beginning with a nutritional consultation and protocol is most important in you health journey and we can discuss the weight management program on an individual basis. The healthy diet will come naturally based on our individually-developed Nutritional Plan. During this process we can discuss techniques to help control craving while creating a healthy work out plan that fits into your personal schedule.
