Blood sugar seems to be something we pay attention to only when we are diagnosed with Diabetes or we're told my our doctors that we have issues related to blood sugar. Even then, we might not be sure exactly how to do anything about it. The reality is, we all have a blood sugar managing system in our bodies, and there are lots of signs and symptoms we often ignore or don't realize are associated with blood sugar when we experi...

It's the time of year where everyone is either trying to avoid getting sick, or getting over a cold or flu.  I've been feeling like I'm on the brink of a cold mayself(yes, Holistic Nutritionists get sick sometimes too!). So I wanted to pass along a list of all the things NOT to do, because I think sometimes we do things out of habit(maybe they were ideas passed along from our grandparents) or we do things because we heard from...

I know that feeling all too well: the pit in my stomach, the heaviness, and that “can’t catch my breath” feeling. I’ve struggled with anxiety for as long as I can remember, and I used to just brush it off as “this is who I am”. As if it was part of my personality. Now I see things differently. I believe that anxiety is just like any other symptom(migraines, digestive upset, bloating, etc). It’s a form of communication from the...

This probably should have been my first blog post! But lately, I’ve been getting a lot of questions: what’s the difference between a Holistic Nutritionist and a Dietician? What are some reasons why I would book an appointment with a Holistic Nutritionist?  What can I expect out of a session with a Holistic Nutritionist? And what if I’m already on medication or other recommendations from my doctor or healthcare provider? Will I...

I hope you come to realize that it just doesn’t work that way.

Blaming it all on food, or will-power.

“if only I had more will-power, I could stop eating so much”

“if only I was more motivated, I could lose weight”.

It doesn’t work that way. I promise you.

I believe that food is medicine.

But that doesn’t mean restricting food, eating less, and having stress around meals.

It means feeding our bodies with what they need in order to be...

Do you often feel bloated after meals? Gassy? Constipated? Are you feeling worried about these symptoms creeping up with all the heavy meals coming up with family and friends this season?

I get it. I've been there. And I'm here to help! 

You know how it's often said that "everything starts in the gut"? It's because it really does. And when we have digestive issues like feeling bloated on a regular basis, it starts to effect ever...

Fun Fact About Me:

When I was doing my undergrad at the University of Guelph, I worked at Starbucks part time. It was good times for sure, but maybe not the healthiest time in my life(loads of caffeine, sugar, and unlimited free drinks was quite the combination!). But a few things have changed since then, one of which being that I went back to school for Holistic Nutrition, and now I have a few tricks up my sleeve to make thos...

HONESTLY, I'M NOT AN EXPERT...

But there’s a few things about me that give me a bit of an inside scoop into the world of natural health and beauty products.  First, I’m a Holistic Nutritionist.  What does that have anything to do with shampoos and skin creams?  That’s where the “holistic” part comes in: health isn’t just about exercise and eating well.  The things in our environment and the products we apply to our skin can hav...

I always get asked this question in my practice: “doesn’t food have all the vitamins and minerals that we need? Why do we need to take supplements anyways”?

These questions are very valid, especially because I’m a big believer in eating REAL FOOD for optimal health, and whenever I wonder what that looks like, I think about what our ancestors would have eaten 100+ years ago. Would they have had a venti sized Starbucks latte with...
