Using your lifestyle as medicine, we will create a template for change. Examining nutrient deficiencies that can often mimic symptoms of depression, anxiety and low energy will allow for natural quick fixes to feeling better fast. Here we have opportunities for dietary interventions, such as looking at “Power Foods” with a peer reviewed published list of the “Clean Fifteen” and “The Dirty Dozen.” To be in the here and now you need to eat and be present in the here and now. We can get almost immediate relief from many emotional issues using nutrition alone.

We will also look at the scientific benefits of mindfulness and meditation to improve your ability to regulate your emotions with self-awareness. Whether you are suffering from emotional issues, managing chronic pain, lowering blood sugar or fighting sugar cravings we can retrain your brain to automatically think differently. How great is that? We make the healthy choice the easy choice!
