WELLNESS BEYOND JANUARY

What is it? An approachable and sustainable view towards health and wellness. No quick fixes. Lots of knowledge drops. Basic education and a great starting point if you’re interested in taking steps towards a lifestyle that is meant for both health and enjoyment. 

Why is it important? To achieve positive outcomes with overall health in a nonrestrictive approach. This ditches the all-or-nothing approach and diet culture that we are so used to. The idea behind long term results – make it work for you. Find what works for you (and only you) and keep going. Consistency over time creates sustainable change and results.

Explore the foundations of achieving optimal health.

Improve your health and wellness by examining the pillars of diet and lifestyle changes that impact our health, including:

  • diet: maximizing and minimizing certain foods
  • implementing mindful eating
  • movement
  • stress management
  • reducing toxic load
  • achieving adequate sleep

Each pillar will be explained in depth as baseline information, which can be built upon in more detail if purchasing the Gut Health and/or Inflammation Workshops. Each Workshop is valuable on its own or can be combined with the others to take your knowledge and health to a new level. Information is provided in a clear, concise, and non-threatening way, focusing on a “you do you” mentality – take what you need to achieve your individualized best health and wellness.

DIET AND LIFESTYLE APPROACHES TO REDUCE INFLAMMATION

What is it? Unlike acute inflammation (your body repairs itself and moves on, ex: you cut your finger, inflammatory response occurs, finger heals); chronic inflammation is a constant state – your body has an accumulation of inflammation which can lead to disease.

Why is it important? Chronic inflammation can cause a variety of diseases, such as autoimmune disease, hormonal health, metabolic conditions like type 2 diabetes, leaky gut, neuro-inflammation (ex: memory and mood), and more. 

Can food and lifestyle improve it? Absolutely. Diet, exercise, stress, and sleep have big impacts in regards to easing or driving inflammation. If we are just talking about food here it’s important to look at foods that increase or promote inflammation and foods that fight inflammation. Hence, there are foods that we want to minimize (hello sugar and trans-fat to start; then looking at potential impacts of a variety of inflammatory foods that can be bio-individualized, meaning not a one-size fits all, with examples like gluten, dairy, soy, corn, and more); and those we want to maximize from whole foods (fruits and vegetables, high quality animal protein, healthy fat, and more) to spices (turmeric, ginger, and more). If there’s anything I’ve learned in my nutrition career that I’ve truly seen come to fruition in literature and experience it’s that “food is medicine” and it is relevant in the fight against inflammation, healing, and preventing disease.  

You’ll learn more about what inflammation is and some steps you can take to decrease inflammation through your diet and lifestyle in order to prevent disease and/or decrease or reverse symptoms from chronic inflammation.

Feel confident and have the tools to trust yourself to be the compass of your own health and decisions.

Taking action from what you learn will improve your energy levels, reduce susceptibility to disease and improve your overall well being.

GUT HEALTH 101

Gut health. Everyone should be talking about it in the health and wellness industry. As Hippocrates said, “all disease begins in the gut.” 

Why is it important? The gut microbiome is a big regulator in our overall health, including functions of the immune system (about 70% of your immune system is in your gut), brain chemistry and health (the gut is called the second brain), hormone health, and more. It is beyond underrated, especially with the idea that food can be/is medicine, which is why I decided to shed some light on it. Simply put, when one of these systems isn’t working, it might be stemming from the gut, so diving into how to support gut health is key here for general healing, optimal health, and disease prevention. 

Can food and lifestyle improve it? Absolutely. Diet, exercise, stress, and sleep have big impacts in regards to improving or harming the gut. When looking at food, the idea is to incorporate more foods that promote beneficial gut health, and decrease or avoid foods that damage or contribute to an imbalanced gut. 

Learn more about how to heal and support your gut (with specified nutrition protocols and implementing the 4 Rs – REMOVE, REPLACE, REINOCULATE, and REPAIR). Ultimately this can improve your overall health and wellness and improve or even reverse some symptoms of inflammation. An elimination diet and action plan will be provided for you to personalize your gut health journey and make it right for you.

Feel confident to trust yourself to be the compass of your own health and decisions to promote gut health.
