The experience of aliveness is one of energy and delight, of feeling “tuned in” and functioning with ease. You can create and sustain such vitality with the help of nutritional and herbal tools that will steadily coax your biology in a health-promoting direction. What follows are some examples of how functional thinking about nutrition, herbs and other natural medicines can lead to dramatic improvements in your health and vitality:
- Energy and sleep quality. Fatigue and exhaustion are rampant in our society. Further aggravating the situation is a common inability to consistently get a good night’s sleep—without the need for sleep meds that can ultimately be addictive and counterproductive. With the help of specific nutritional and herbal strategies aimed at improving glandular function and other key aspects of circadian health, you will enjoy deeper sleep and greatly enhanced energy, stamina and well-being.
- Digestive health. Hippocrates, the Father of Western Medicine, said “All diseases begin in the gut.” Believe it or not, poor gastrointestinal health often contributes to such common problems as fatigue, headaches, brain fog, allergies, painful joints, and skin problems. Once again, this is where specific nutritional, herbal, and mind-body strategies come into play—all aimed at creating digestive harmony.
- Anti-inflammatory power. Chronic inflammation plays a key role in many illnesses, and various lifestyle choices can make or break the chronic inflammatory cycle. The practical key is to avoid those habits that fuel chronic inflammation while emphasizing natural strategies that curb inflammation and bolster healing. Many of these tools also can be used to wean yourself from anti inflammatory medications.
How we can work together. Drawing from my graduate training in nutritional biochemistry and health coaching experience at several integrative medicine clinics, I offer personalized coaching to map out a plan for health & healing with information about resources, products and healing tools. At the present time, I am offering sessions out of my home office. After the initial session, I can also can provide coaching over the phone or via Skype.
If you'd like to set up a health coaching session, please reach out.
