As a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP), I work with my clients to identify food intolerances and uncover their nutritional deficiencies. I provide personalized solutions for improving your digestion, hydration, blood sugar regulation, and mineral and fatty acid balance. When these nutritional foundations are in place, a healthy natural weight release occurs and physical cravings for sugar are eliminated. I design a personalized food plan with the appropriate balance of nutrient-dense whole foods and supplemental therapy that will rebalance the brain chemistry, detoxify the body, decrease inflammation and improve overall health. I recognize and appreciate that each of my clients is biochemically unique, and I understand that each has their own personal challenges with food.
The FARE Nutrition programs support clients who struggle with food addiction and overeating by healing the body and mind with nutritional therapy. I believe that uncontrollable cravings and overeating are often biochemical in nature—not an issue of willpower. Nutritional therapy is a way to heal from the addictive health consequences of the modern Western diet. I understand the physiological, genetic and environmental forces that can drive food addiction.
The Physical and Chemical ComponentA personalized food and supplement program is designed to regulate blood sugar, detoxify the body, and balance brain chemistry. I eliminate the most common foods that trigger the obsession to overeat and replace them with “real” whole healthy foods that nourish the body and mind. Building a foundation of healthy eating by eliminating addictive foods and removing food intolerances relieves unhealthy food cravings. As my clients become nutritionally balanced, they experience a new mental clarity and greater sense of physical well-being.
The Psychological and Emotional ComponentAfter addressing the physiological addiction to specific foods, I encourage my clients to look at the psychological and emotional reasons that can lead them back to overeating. Together, we explore the early behaviors that may have led to an unhealthy relationship with food, and we look at current environmental triggers. This creates an understanding of how food has been used to eliminate anxiety, reduce stress or numb emotions. These insights will be an important step to gaining long-term freedom from overeating.
Your Self-Care ProgramI focus on promoting self-awareness and help my clients develop their own personal self-care programs. This holistic approach empowers individuals to look at their habitual patterns and take responsibility for their own health rather than focusing on strict, rigid rules around food. Self-care includes creating personal time for your self through meditation, exercise, creativity and other activities that nurture you spiritually, physically and emotionally. Self-care will help you learn to live with the daily pressures of life without using food to cope with stress or to disconnect from uncomfortable feelings.
