How can you help me?
As a Certified Nutritional Practitioner (CNP) I work to provide you with a strong foundation to achieve your health goals. I emphasize the significance of poor nutrition, being the main contributor to a wide array of health disorders. Each individual has their own unique biological makeup with different health issues; I access individual’s nutritional imbalances and areas of concern. As I strive to ensure proper health through nutrition and help you lead a more holistic lifestyle. Working with me is complementary to other health care providers, including your family doctor to achieve your optimal health goals and get to the root of the problem. No two people are the same, which is why it is so important to get a customized plan specific to you!
HOW DID YOU GET INTO THE FIELD OF HOLISTIC NUTRITION?
One of the reasons I am so confident I can help you is because I experienced this first hand! After moving away from home at the age of 18 to attend University a lot changed for me. The stress of school and being away from home really took a toll on my body. On top of that I was not eating very well or looking after myself, as I should have been. As an outcome of this my immune system took a hit, I was sick all of the time. Stress was affecting my body in a way that I didn’t know possible. When my workload got too heavy my body would break out in rashes and I would experience extreme anxiety. My hormones became unbalanced, which also affected my body greatly. After doing much research and seeing a nutritionist, I was able to heal myself of these problems through diet, lifestyle changes as well as supplementation. And that is what got me hooked on natural nutrition!
WHAT ARE YOUR CREDENTIALS?
I completed my Bachelor of Health Sciences at the University of Western Ontario. After that I went on to study Holistic Nutrition at the Institute of Holistic Nutrition where I finished my schooling to become a Certified Nutritional Practitioner. Once receiving these credentials, I then joined the Canadian Association of Natural Nutritional Practitioners where I also become a Natural Nutrition Clinical Practitioner. I may have completed my degrees, but in the nutrition world the learning never stops!
