Registered Holistic Nutritionist
Whenever I was sick as a kid, my Mom would joke that I was sick from the day I stopped breast feeding. This was something she always said in passing, and I really didn’t think much of it. As I grew older and joined the workforce this all changed, I realized this pain I was living with was not normal. Most people catch one cold or flu virus in a year, but I would average anywhere from five to seven. In addition, I developed chronic migraines and digestive problems by the age of 12.
After years of suffering and countless prescriptions for painkillers, I decided enough was enough. I had to try something new. I researched a local nutritionist in the city and made an appointment, really not sure what to expect. This turned out to be one of the most important appointments in my life.
Through changes in my nutrition, supplementation, and rebalancing of hormones, I was able to greatly reduce my migraines, eliminate my digestive trouble, and prevent catching a cold or flu.
As I was adjusting to my new lifestyle, nutrition started to become a passion. I began researching recipes and reading every book, magazine, and article I could find on the subject. Around this time I also decided to make a big life decision, I was going to change my career path and pursue my passion for nutrition. I thought to myself, if these changes to my nutrition could have such a dramatic effect on my life,imagine how many other people could benefit from this knowledge. A few days later I enrolled in the Natural Nutrition Program through the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition, and the rest, as they say, is history.
I am fascinated with the field of symptomatology and believe in an integrative approach to health and wellness. I believe in educating individuals to take an active role in their own health by providing personalized information on what foods they should be eating, as well as educating them on where their food is coming from. I believe we are responsible for monitoring, assessing and taking control of our own well being.
