Have you been curious of the role that nutrition plays in your health? Looking in-depth at patterns around nourishment and nutrition can help us turn what we eat into medicine that not only feeds our bodies but also nourishes our spirits. Often simple changes in our diets can have a dramatic impact on our overall health and well-being. But how do we know what to change? What to incorporate? What to let go of? With all the research and opinions out there, how do we know what’s right for us?
There are many factors to consider when looking at nutrition including your constitution, the season you are in, and any specific health challenges you may be experiencing such as issues with digestion, absorption, and inflammation. And there are many ways to use your diet as a strategy to overcoming these specific health challenges. These topics and more are what we get to cover during our time together at a Comprehensive Intake. Not only do we look at the kinds of foods you are eating, drinks you are drinking, and medicines you are taking, we also look at cravings, and aversions because they give us clues to any underlying nutritional deficiencies that may be present.
We gather all of this information and together come up with a plan so that what you put into your body becomes your best ally on your healing journey. As part of any plan, we also begin addressing long-held patterns and beliefs around nourishment and nutrition so that you can feel more confident in your relationship with food and how it impacts your body, mind, and spirit.
