Clinical Nutrition and Coaching
Nutrition is food, nutrient and supplementation health care that is focused on building your health by restoring proper physiological functioning of your body. Clinical nutrition explores the relationship between illness, disease, diet and nutrition.
Our nutrition coaching is a mentorship program for our clients. We are the food and lifestyle champion and mentor in your life. Changing diet and lifestyle is difficult. There may be food or lifestyle addictions, or long held patterns of behavior that need to change. Having an accountability partner who is qualified in helping you become the hero of your health journey.
Many people today are malnourished. A client may be overweight seeking weight loss, yet they are malnourished due to a lack of micro and macro-nutrients. They may be overweight because their body is in survival mode holding on to the fat for survival.
Rather than suppress symptoms with natural or pharmaceutical agents, we want to assess symptoms to clearly understand which systems of the body needs support to get back on track. We work with the 3-body system. Usually we work with energy management first, second the digestive system and third the detoxification system.
We work with clients who are seeking solutions to their chronic health issues, those interested in preventive health, and who are willing to commit to making diet changes and follow supplement recommendations.
We put together food plans relevant to your symptomatology. We have different food plans for different health challenges. We help people with inflammatory and digestive issues.
Each program will review medical history, family history, blood work, environmental influences and genetics.
We believe that every person deserves to enjoy vibrant health. And that your body has an innate ability to heal. Health is complex but food and lifestyle make up 80% of your health story.

Clinical Nutrition and Coaching
Nutrition is food nutrient and supplementation health care that is focused on building your health by restoring proper physiological functioning of your body.
A client can be overweight when they come to see us and want to lose weight, yet they are malnourished due to a lack of micro and macro-nutrients. And therefore, they are often overweight because their body is in survival mode holding on to the fat for survival.
Rather than suppress those symptoms with natural or pharmaceutical agents, we want to assess these symptoms to clearly understand which systems of your body need support to get back on track. Again, we work with the 3-body system so normally we work with energy management first, then digestive systems and lastly detoxification systems.
We work with clients who have not yet found the solutions to their chronic health issues, as well as those interested in preventive health, and who are willing to commit to making diet changes and follow supplement recommendations.
We work with people via phone and video. We require that the first consultation is video so we both can see each other and get to know each other better building trust and understanding the process. We will go over the health history as well as any tests that have been done in the recent past. And then we will decide on what further testing needs to be done. Nutrition coaching involves helping clients with the emotional aspects as well of making food and lifestyle changes.
Healthy eating habits are important during cancer treatment. Healthy eating habits and good nutrition can help patients deal with the effects of cancer and its treatment. Some cancer treatments work better when the patient is well nourished and get enough nutrients, protein and good fats in the diet.
There are different diets that work with cancer and the choice of food plan is geared around the individual patient. We don’t follow one diet style.

Our coaching program will cover daily habits, struggles with changing foods, general information about different foods and ingredients. We are a mentor and wellness advocate for our clients and we are a trusted partner on your health journey. We coach weekly and bi-weekly depending on the client’s history and program.

Coaching programs last 3 – 6 months. Some clients work with us for longer but coaching is usually then once a month after the initial period of bi-weekly or weekly sessions.
Coaching programs are for a set length of time. You can purchase coaching sessions in pack of 4, 6 or 3 months and 6 months coaching. Of course, there is a price break the longer the program pack you choose.
