Our blog is also the home of our nutritional therapy practice- where work one on one with individuals and families who want to take control of their health naturally.
We also offer online classes that delve deeper into the topics of real food, holistic health, non-toxic living and gives strategies and tips on how to figure out the missing piece of your health puzzle.
How did I come to this lifestyle?
I came to nutritional therapy because of my own health challenges– I was sick for many, many years with all sorts of symptoms ranging from migraines to fibromyalgia to thyroid and adrenal issues, weight gain, infertility, chronic fatigue and eczema / other skin issues.
I suffered for years, and was practically bedridden at age 25. I spent my time going to doctor after doctor, trying all sorts of prescription medications and alternative medicine.
But none of it was working.
Then, after diving into some food allergy testing, I was led to change my diet and then my lifestyle.
Within a few months, I was able to erase most of my symptoms- and have since moved across the country numerous times, my husband and I started an organic farmstead in New England, where we had over 200 animals and we farmed for about 3 years, and now we are on the new adventure of a two year, nationwide road trip and tour.
I never, ever thought this would have been possible for me- but it was- and my passion is helping other people make the same changes in their life and hopefully shortcut the suffering I had to go through in the mean time.
How do we approach health and healing?
We believe so many people are trying to find the missing piece of their health puzzle- and are confused, overwhelmed with all the information out there, and haven’t seen results by just changing their diet.
Our Health Philosophy is:
Real food is only part of the story…WHOLE HEALTH requires a balance of what we call the “Essential Six Elements of Whole Health”.
As a result of our work with hundreds of clients over the past fifteen years, we developed the “Essential Elements Method” approach to wellness. These six key components are crucial to optimal health.
An imbalance or dysfunction in one or more Elements compromises overall health and the whole body suffers.
Everything in the body is connected, and it is only when all of the Essential Elements are addressed that WHOLE HEALTH can be realized.
Our podcast offers shows that delve into these elements deeper and help you take action to take control of your health- and be empowered, inspired and supported along the way.
