my personal commitment to your health and success

As with all of our offerings at ALWC, we have the intention of supporting the client as a whole which means we must address all aspects of living a healthy, balanced life. The following are the biggest attributes that may be addressed as we work towards finding that true balance for you.

 Bio-individuality
The concept of Bio-individuality is the idea that each of us has unique food and lifestyle needs. One person’s food is another person’s poison, and that’s why fad diets tend to fail in the long run. Working on the principle of bio-individuality, I’ll support you to make positive changes that are based on your unique needs, lifestyle, preferences, and ancestral background.
Primary Food
It’s easy to overlook all of the things that contribute to our sense of nourishment and fulfillment. It’s not just the food we eat that affects our health, but all of the other factors present in our daily lives. Healthy relationships, a fulfilling career, regular physical activity, and a spiritual awareness are essential forms of nourishment. When these primary foods are balanced, what you eat becomes secondary. I will support you in achieving all of your goals, from eating the right foods for your body to living an inspired, fulfilling life.
Crowding Out
Many nutrition experts give their clients a list of foods to avoid and foods to eat, which is good basic information to have, however, I understand that it takes more than a list to be educated about food choices. My approach is somewhat different… by eating and drinking foods that are good for you, you will naturally have less room and desire for unhealthy foods. There are many ways to substitute a healthier version of some of the dishes that you love! Simply put, you will crowd out the unhealthy food in your diet. This takes a little practice to make happen, but I will support you along the way.
Deconstructing Cravings
Cravings play a critical role in understanding what your body needs and shouldn’t be ignored. When you learn how to deconstruct your cravings and understand what they’re really telling you, you will be able to reclaim a sense of balance and harmony. Rather than viewing cravings as weaknesses, we see them as important messages from your body meant to help you maintain balance.

Bio-individuality is the cornerstone to the way I work with people because no two people are alike, no one way of making recommendations for a condition or ailment works for everyone and no one diet is going to serve everyone in the same way. So getting to know you and all of the things that make you who you are is imperative in my being able to help you on your wellness journey. Some of the things I will want to address as I am getting to know you are: your family history, your medical history, any prescription medications and supplements currently being taken, symptoms that have been presenting recently, diet, how you feel about the foods you eat, and cravings you have. Together, we will also want to address lifestyle which includes family life, career, spirituality, sleep and exercise/movement.

 

As we begin to develop a picture of your overall health and diet, we can start to build a plan to help you take the steps needed to help you reach your goals. After your initial consultation, follow-up consultations may be recommended to review things such as food logs, dietary progress and to reassess where you feel you are in that process. If any tests were recommended we will go over those results and determine potential recommendation plans as well as make any changes to existing nutritional guidelines. A recommendation plan can include herbal and/or homeopathic remedies or other types of supplementation such as vitamins, minerals or probiotics to support your specific situation.
