The artichoke represents the holistic approach of peeling back layers (symptoms) to get to the heart (root causes) of health challenges in order to restore energy & enthusiasm for life!

Digestively, artichokes increase bile production, improving the digestion of fats and excretion of toxins and wastes from the body.

what is a holistic nutritionist?

A holistic nutritionist is a health professional who:

  • assesses health and vitality in the natural context of a client’s whole life experience
  • considers the importance not only of diet, but also physical, emotional, social and environmental circumstances
  • uses nutritional choices, supplements, education and lifestyle modifications in a non-invasive way to empower clients towards self-healing, increased health and maximized vitality
  • offers compassion, education and guidance in a truly therapeutic partnership

how do we work?

  • every person is unique and individual – there is no “one-size-fits-all” approach
  • each client receives a full functional medical analysis, documenting events, actions and environmental and nutritional influences of your life, providing a big picture view of how your body got to where it is now
  • nutritional imbalances and lifestyle patterns are examined/addressed, focusing on preventing poor health and reestablishing good health
  • the latest available research and clinical evidence is used to develop a personalized health plan based on your individual health goals, emphasizing education and guidance so that you remain in control of your well-being
  • it is a practical, effective and lasting approach focusing on whole, natural foods, supplements and lifestyle changes
