The All About YOU Private Plan – A 3 Month Coaching Program to Meet YOUR Needs & Your Goals

In case you missed the new flash, there is no quick fix when it comes to improving the way we eat and live.  Learning what is healthy for you takes time (and even experimentation) and so does replacing old habits and beliefs with healthy ones.  Patience, time and skillpower are the main ingredients. Success is much more probable when we weave new information and strategies, one layer at a time into our busy lives.

  • 1 complimentary cookbook valued at $30
  • You are the author of this program. We meet and you decide on our focus. This could include weight-loss, digestive problems, chronic pain, depression, anxiety, hormonal imbalance such as PCOS or menopause.

Once we have determined your focus, the action plan can include a number of the following approaches depending on your needs:

  • Establishing your goals and completing a health history and assessment to determine a plan of action.
  • Learning about your dosha (body type), metabolic typing (eating for your needs), nutrition basics, nutrient supplementation for your unique needs and food combination.
  • Mind-Body Eating – Learn about what is underneath overeating. Emotional, habitual, stress-related, seasonal? Address the cause and trigger situations by developing awareness, healthy habits, strategies and skill power.
  • Eating psychology – Eating for your mental health and addressing how your mindset affects your physical health (including your weight).

Depression? Anxiety? Mood swings? It seems no matter where you turn nowadays, psychiatry has steady stream of new research further confirming the brain-gut connection.

Find out what’s really eating you and how a holistic approach to depression and anxiety can significantly change your mind. Literally!

You have probably heard about seratonin and how it is key in keeping depression and anxiety at bay. But did you know that 95% of it is not produced in the brain, but in the gut? That’s why so many people continue to struggle with depression and anxiety even while taking medication.
