I think one of the biggest questions I get from people is about what nutrition school to attend and how to run a successful private practice business. I thought I would write a blog post first about picking a nutrition school. Also, (and admittedly, a bit selfishly) I see a lot of misinformation out there, especially on Instagram and I wanted to clear some of it up.Read More
As a holistic nutritionist I get a lot of the same questions from my clients. One of the top question/concerns I am asked is how to eat healthy when they are so busy. To which I usually ask them how their typical days go. Where is all there "extra" time (the time not at work, taking care of their kids or in an office) being spent?
And you know what I find...? There is usually time in there. Holes where we get sucked into watching a few too many Insta-stories or reading too many articles on the same thing or even working form home in front of the TV and not being as efficient as we could be. Believe me, I understand. I have these times too!
The first part of that answer is awareness around that time.Read More
This week's been a busy one and I have had a bit of a hard time focusing, feeling like I was spinning my wheels and doing it all but still doing nothing. Do you ever feel like that? So I found myself drawn back to this wonderful plant, Ashwagandha. I could have written an entire research paper on it. THere's so many studies out there on it and it's so fascinating at the range it can do to the body. I hope you enjoy reading about as much as you do using it! It's almost one of those herbs that's wonderful for everyone at some point in their lives.Read More
I know. I know. That’s a very grand title. But I promise by the end of this post you will have the secret to your best skin ever.
Seriously. I’m not even joking.
For me, this journey for better skin (I had very acneic skin) began a long-ass time ago. I mean over 2 decades ago, when I was 14-years-old. It began when my periods became so painful that kept me home from school coupled with the pimple-laden skin that comes with being a hormonal teenager (sorry for those dudes reading this, I'll just warn you now that this will be about hormones and the like). I sought out several medical opinions and was told by all of them that the best and only course of action to kill both birds with one stone was to get on a hormonal birth control pill.Read More
I have some AMAZING news everyone! I am officially a holistic nutritionist! I had my final presentation yesterday and it went great! It was a fast and fun 18 month program. I enjoyed being back in a physical classroom again with some amazing individuals. It even looks like one of my colleagues and I will be starting a corporate wellness lecture program together. Now the students becomes the teachers! Eeekkkk!!!
Aside from all that wonderful news I am starting to work on developing my own private practice and moving into some cool new office space with some amazing doctors and other wellness practitioners. Naturally, I thought the blog (if you can call my irregular, once a month posts a blog) would turn a little more into a holistic health space. Yeah? Cool!Read More
