Nutrition counselling can benefit many people with various issues:If you want to lose weight I can help you launch a realistic eating plan combined with physical activity. Enjoy delicious, beautiful food without deprivation and cravings. My approach is long-term lifestyle change with slow weight loss based on whole foods and not a “diet.”
If you have diabetes, heart health issues, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, celiac disease or gluten intolerance I can help you use medical nutrition therapy as a delicious approach for health improvement.
If you are have digestive problems I can help you fine tune your diet so you are not aggravating your condition with the foods you eat. I specialize in managing heart burn (GERD), diverticulitis, inflammatory bowel and irritable bowel syndrome.Food allergies and sensitivities can be complex and hard to navigate. If you have been diagnosed and need food restrictions I can provide guidance on trigger foods to eliminate and provide what to substitute so your diet is balanced. I am an expert in healthy local eating, organics, gardening and the green food movement. If you are pregnant or trying to get pregnant I can coach you to make adjustments to your eating plan to ensure you get ALL of the nutrients you need to support your special pregnancy and maintain and/or improve your own health. Later we can also work to adjust your diet to support healthy breastfeeding and help fine tune your meal plans for the baby and toddler. If your teenager has issues with food or they want to try vegetarianism then you want to talk to me! I can provide nutrition counselling for anorexia, bulemia, overweight, iron deficiency anemia and vegetarianism. If you are caring for an aging parent I can enlighten you to possible food and drug interactions, proper hydration, special diets, changing taste buds and managing constipation. I lovingly consult with families to find nutrition solutions and appropriate foods for various stages of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. I have many years of practical experience in geriatric nutrition.
