Nutrition

  • There is an old cliché that states you are what you eat. Theoretically, if you eat the proper ratio of the right nutrients, the body will run smoothly and you will be healthy, but it just doesn’t always seem to work that way in reality.

    My philosophy is that you are what you absorb! Stress, not chewing enough, and an imbalanced body all keep us from absorbing what we need even when eating a great diet. And… most of us don’t eat a diet that’s full of the nutrients we need.

    Nutritional counseling can give you the information and skills to eat the right foods that will improve your health. We will start with a small goal or two, once they become habits we’ll add more and you’ll be feeling better. To understand the root cause of your imbalances I may suggest a functional lab test or two. EZ Balance patients can also receive a discount on high quality professional supplements.

    Try a 10 day program to jumpstart your road to wellness!

    10-Day Inflammation Program: Inflammation can be a healthy response to your body’s signals to address challenges. However inflammation can become the enemy if it is causing your body to overreact to stressors and creating a chronic inflammation response. Reducing the effects of inflammation is a key factor in supporting and improving your overall health.  A healthy inflammatory response system is important as we age and the combination of sub-optimal dietary and lifestyle habits make it vital to support the body’s inflammatory response.  The 10-day Inflammation Program will help to jumpstart the healing process and put your body on the fast track to reducing inflammation and living a healthier, more active life!  Diet and products specifically chosen to support your body’s healthy inflammatory response. This program consists of high quality whole food based and herbal complexes that contain many beneficial nutritional constituents that are essential to reduce inflammation. Benefits include a decrease in aches and pains, increased energy, reduced sinus congestion, and reduced belly fat.

    10-Day Vitality Cleanse:One of the greatest feelings in life is being healthy and full of energy – especially with the fast-paced lives that most of us endure. When your body has balanced hormones and is properly nourished, you can be ready to handle the stress that life brings.   Healthy hormone balance is dependent on proper liver and gut function as well as balanced blood sugar levels.  A poor functioning liver can allow old, toxic hormones to build up, thus creating signs of sleep disorders, weight loss challenges, gastrointestinal distress and loss of libido.  The 10-Day Vitality Cleanse is designed to “reboot” your system by assisting to balance hormones and ignite various body systems to better deal with toxins and other stressors.  Benefits include increased energy, enhanced mental clarity, and weight loss.
