Nature of Health

Holistic Health Coach 
Biofeedback Technician

Optimal Health and Wellness is a daily practice and a lifelong journey! I can help you obtain and maintain your highest potential of health!

Our bodies are absolutely amazing and have the potential to heal from practically Anything! However we must maintain the Regulatory Systems that include our Elimination Organs (ie. our lymph, colon, kidneys, liver, bowels and skin), Immune System, and Gut Microbiome. Through the food we eat, movement, proper water intake, stress reduction, specific whole food vital nutrients, gut probiotics, and detoxification we can heal and maintain that regulatory system!

In our world today most of us are deficient in the vital nutrients our bodies need in order to maintain optimal health. This is why adding Vitamins, Minerals, Enzymes, Amino Acids, Fatty Acids, Trace Elements and Probiotics in a whole food supplemental form is so important! Through a biofeedback test we can find what works spicificly for you. When healing the body requires up to 7 times more nutrition to heal itself than the current daily recommended allowances. With whole food, whole food supplements and healthy lifestyle practices our bodies can give us the energy, mental clarity, stamina, proper digestion and better quality of life that we deserve.

Pain and degeneration is the expression of a reduction in the bodies ability to regulate itself and the result of degenerative development due to compounding issues such as lack of these vital nutrients, environmental and dietary toxins (such as heavy metals, hyperproteinemia, preservatives, chemical food additives, and stress). These toxins create blockages in our system, reduce our bodies electromagnetic field and support the growth of degenerative micro-organisms such as harmful bacteria, viruses, fungus and parasites. However with a healthy regulatory & immune system function all of these toxins and ailments can be eliminated and the power of our self-healing system can be brought back into balance. I would like to help you achieve this balance as well as Fullness of life through Great Health!
So let's get started!

Holistic Health Coach

Our bodies when functioning at their highest capacity can heal infection, dis-ease and relieve stress that blocks us from being our best! Reaching our full potential and vitality is possible when we put holistic principles into practice in our lives every day. Holistic meaning we address all the various lifestyle & dietary habits that affect our body and not just alleviate the symptoms.

To begin we must recognize and step into our personal power! The responsibility we have around the foods we eat and our daily habits we have make a profound impact on our health!

As a holistic health coach I will help you hear what your body is telling you and teach you practical ways to integrate healthier habits into your daily life. Through my Foundations of Health program I will be an accountability partner to help motivate you to continually work on powerful principles that will bring balance and stability to your life. We will look at and work on the various stressors that are causing your mind and body harm. I will help you build awareness and skills to create and maintain these practices in order to achieve optimal health and vitality.

I am a Nutripath, which is the study of how nutrition and lifestyle with a holistic approach can benefit our health and overall well-being. I am happy to assist you in achieving great health through sharing a wealth of health knowledge and working with you in creating mindful habits that support you in maintaining your commitment to yourself!

I offer these powerful Holistic Health Coaching sessions on a weekly or bi-weekly schedule in order to help keep you motivated and accountable.

Food and Supplement Testing

I offer a Food Test of over 70 different foods in order to get my clients on a diet that is specific to their body.
I test any supplements before recommending them to my clients so that we can both feel confident it will work before taking it.
The machine I use is a biofeedback device called the BioTrue. It is designed to do testing for foods and supplements in specific relation to the individual’s body. A pinpoint tester is placed on the pericardium acupressure point in the palm. A food or supplement is then placed on the BioTrue access panel. It will assess the milliamperes of your bio-electrodermal information via the vagal nerve in relation to the bio-electrical milliamperes of the testing substance (ie. food or supplement). A meter provides interpretation of these results.

A Strong test indicates that the food or supplement is able to be processed, giving your body energy and is therefore good for you.
A Weak test indicates that the food or supplement is taking energy, not able to process in your body and is therefore not good for you.
Because the pericardium acupressure point is part of the vagus nervous system it can measure the bio-electrical responses related to the heart, brain and digestive functions.
This acupressure point provides an accurate non-invasive means of determining nutritional needs and assessing food & supplement guidelines for the individual.

Live Blood Cell Microscopy

Through microscopic evaluation, many tendencies towards dysfunction in the body can be revealed. The sample is observed through an Olympus microscope and a live image is projected onto a monitor so you can see what is going on inside your body. The function of the red blood cells and white immune cells are observed for nutritional needs, immune system strength/weaknesses, degenerative micro-organisms such as yeast, bacteria, fungus, and blockages which may be causing degenerative symptoms. Whole food nutraceutical supplements and dietary changes can be recommended for biofeedback testing from these results.

Nutripathic Consultation

Nutripathy is based on a combination of European Biological Science, Biochemistry, knowledge of Physiology, and integrates Eastern modalities as well as ancient healing philosophies and techniques. I have a 5 year degree in Nutripathy, I am trained, certified and specialize in identifying the body's nutritional needs. 

The individual is regarded as a whole being, therefore I never consider only the diseased organ. I do not diagnose or treat the symptoms but focus on revealing the obstructed functions, causation and will work to help you restore your body’s natural healing functions.

I will offer isopathic and gut flora remedies along with lifestyle/dietary changes that help change the terrain of your body and support your own regulatory systems to heal itself.

Body Fitness Consultations

If you’re wanting to lose weight, start a fitness practice or just feel more powerful in your body. I can help!

I have over 8 year in movement techniques and flow arts experience. I can help you build a practice that is specific to you and will make it fun so that you will want to keep doing it!

I can also offer dietary choices along with super foods that will support your body in obtaining greater fitness and vitality!
