Nutrition support and counseling is a key element to wellness and longevity. More than 85% of foods Americans eat are made from processed flour, sugars and/or oils. All of these can be inflammatory to the body and the root cause of many chronic diseases and nagging ailments. Our bodies are very resilient and will try to heal itself given the right foods, environment and lifestyle choices.

The person who can benefit from nutrition coaching the most is the person who maybe knows what to do, but is having a hard time putting it into action. Nutrition information can be confusing as nutrition science is still in it’s infancy. Every year there seems to be a new study that contradicts what we thought was true. What we DO know is that there isn’t a one-sized fits-all approach when it comes to nutrition. Everyone’s body is different in their need for certain nutrients - which could be a reason why a diet that your partner or friend did produced fantastic results for them, but not for you. If you haven’t quite found the right diet for your body and lifestyle, it could be time to look into a personalized approach.
