I will only use the word "nutrition" and abide by my care's motto "lasting sustainable change" with all of my treatments. I want you to eat for health. I want you to evolve your nutrition into a lifestyle, even if that means small incremental changes to make it happen. I believe the difference is diet=restriction and nutrition= abundance & vitality. I will focus on nutrient-dense food that feels good in your body, rather than focusing on what you shouldn't be eating. I like to increase the good, to crowd out what's not as beneficial.Read More
With treatments, I'm all about maximizing ease. I strive to integrate beneficial therapies into every day life to reap optimal benefits that comes from consistency.
Who doesn't love something that increases overall vitality, recruits the immune system, lowers stress and more importantly takes under one minute?

Minimalism is about being mindful of what we're bringing into our lives, not just possessions. It's ridding a life that's full, and creating a full life. It's who you socialize with, how you invest your time, your frame of mind. It's about finding simplicity.Read More
The typical Western diet isn't shy on salt. Processed and packaged foods are laden with salt to make them appear to taste better. A healthier alternative to refined iodized salt is sea salt.
Sea salt is more of a complex compound, providing a well-rounded mineral profile that is essential for a variety of cellular processes.
I'm not the only one drawn to making goals or setting expectations for when the ball drops and calendar page changes over. But, how I differ is in my approach. Years ago, I stopped making New Year's resolutions.Read More
Now that exams and clinic responsibilities recede, I can finally let myself think about Christmas.
I've been patiently waiting to assemble some herbal goodies, feeling inspired by the holiday spirit. Christmas time accentuates my love of playing with herbs because it gives me the opportunity to share with family and friends my passion of herbal medicine.
Sleep issues are one of the most common concerns I see as a clinical intern. Even if it's not the main reason someone is coming in, I see patterns of people unable to slow their mind down before bed, or waking up multiple times a night unable to fall back to sleep.
We know sleep is essential for our well-being, and that thought in itself can make sleep more challenging...
