Glossary Terms that we will use frequently as we work to achieve your life-balance:

Treatment with hormone medications that contain hormones that have the same chemical formula as those made naturally in the body, referred to by many as “bio-identical” hormones. Bio-identical hormones are created by altering compounds derived from naturally-occurring plant products and are typically taken in the form of pills, capsules, troches, Rapidly-dissolving tablets (RDT’s), triturates, creams or gels.

A comfortable state of equilibrium achieved among the body systems, the mind, the spirit, and a person’s lifestyle.

The way in which a person lives. This could include, but not be limited to: relationships, nutrition, health, and mindset.

Primary Food
It’s easy to overlook all of the things that contribute to our sense of nourishment and fulfillment. It’s not just the food we eat that affects our health, but all of the other factors present in our daily lives. Healthy relationships, a fulfilling career, regular physical activity, and a spiritual awareness are essential forms of nourishment. When these “primary foods” are balanced, what you eat becomes secondary. I will support you in achieving all of your goals, from eating the right foods for your body to living an inspired, fulfilling life.

The concept of bio-individuality is the idea that each of us has unique food and lifestyle needs. One person’s food is another person’s poison, and that’s why fad diets tend to fail in the long run. Working on the principle of bio-individuality, I’ll support you to make positive changes that are based on your unique needs, lifestyle, preferences, and ancestral background.

Crowding Out
Many nutrition experts give their clients a list of foods to avoid and foods to eat, which explains why so many people are turned off by nutrition. My approach is different – by eating and drinking foods that are good for you, you will naturally have less room and desire for unhealthy foods. Simply put, you will “crowd out” the unhealthy food in your diet. This takes a little practice to make happen, but I will support you all the way.

Deconstructing Cravings
Cravings play a critical role in understanding what your body needs and shouldn’t be ignored. When you learn how to deconstruct your cravings and understand what they’re really telling you, you will be able to reclaim a sense of balance and harmony.
