The first step in treating any condition is addressing diet and lifestyle.
But diet and lifestyle changes can be difficult to make. I could not be more sympathetic to this issue. It's important to remember, though, that EVERY LITTLE BIT HELPS. Too often, I see people refuse to make any diet or lifestyle changes because the idea of MANY changes is too overwhelming -- this is where I come in! I will help you to find one tiny change that you can use as a starting place and be there to support you through it. "A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step."
ADD/ADHD and Mood/Energy Issues
ADD/ADHD: I work to identify the underlying conditions that can cause children (and adults) to have trouble focusing. Rather than dealing in symptom suppression, I help those struggling with ADD/ADHD -- as I helped my own daughter -- to truly heal from the inside out.
Mood/Energy Issues: Are you having trouble falling asleep or staying asleep? Do you need caffeine to get you through the afternoon? Is your exhaustion causing you to be more short-tempered than you'd like? If so, your HPA Axis may need a little love and attention. The HPA (Hypothalamus-Pituitary-Adrenal) Axis is a very complex system which is so often neglected in our go-go-go lifestyles. Learn how to take better care of yours and reap the benefits!
Thyroid / Skin / Joint Problems
Do you struggle with thyroid problems, skin issues like eczema and or psoriasis or chronic joint pain? Have you seen doctor after doctor and no one has been able to help? Dr. Alessio Fasano believes that, in order for an autoimmune condition to develop, you need 3 things: a genetic predisposition (can't do anything about THAT), an environmental trigger and a leaky gut. Working from a Functional and Evolutionary Medicine perspective, I teach you how to support your body to help it heal, and show you how to minimize your toxic burden -- thereby allowing your body to heal itself.
Asthma / Allergies
Do you struggle with asthma or seasonal/food allergies? Are you worried about having to use toxic medications to deal with these issues? I can work with you to figure out what's CAUSING your asthma and allergies in the first place and find ways to help your body heal itself.
Weight Loss / General Health
Are you struggling to lose weight? Have you tried every "diet" out there but nothing has worked? Or do you just want to eat healthier but don't know where or how to start? I understand how frustrating this can be and believe me, I understand how hard it is to eat healthily with very little time! Meet with me to learn how to finally take off those last 10 pounds. Or to learn better eating options for you and your family including quick dinners, school lunches and snack options. I can even clean out your pantry to get you started if you'd like.
