Supporting with Individualized Nutrition and Lifestyle Modifications To Enhance Health-
I use food, herbs, supplements, and lifestyle modifications to help shift the terrain in your unique body, at the deepest level, towards health and to get the nutrients and precursors we need to nourish our organs, glands, enzymes, hormones, barriers, microbiome, neurotransmitters, immune system, and tissues so we can function our best. First we need to make sure you are digesting and absorbing what you are eating. Then we can work at reducing inflammation, boosting immune function, nourishing adrenals, easing autoimmunity, balancing hormones, increasing energy, and building overall resilience. We focus not only on what you are giving your body but what your body can do with it. I provide the focus, attention, encouragement, partnership, accountability, and a systems based approach that is lacking today in healthcare. I am on team YOU.
Empowering Through Education-
Teaching people the biochemistry and physiology of what is going on in their body empowers them, it helps them to connect the dots between choices and symptoms, and gives them the motivation to make changes. When we understand what is going on inside our body we can take an active role in healing. Very few things are good or bad inherently, instead if we understand the mechanism at which certain things affect us is depending on who we are and what our genetics and history is, then we can make better choices for ourself. I am crazy independent and I have never enjoyed being told what to do without understanding why. I want to empower YOU to feel your best and to understand YOUR unique body. I help people take an active role in their health by better understanding their body.
Investigating with Curiosity-
Symptoms and diseases are messages that our body is dysfunctioning somewhere. The symptom is rarely the problem, nor is the disease, but instead they are a sign that something is off upstream causing or contributing to these problems. By looking closely at lifestyle, history, lab work, genetics, mindset, biochemistry, symptoms, diet, and more we look upstream for imbalances that are causing downstream symptoms. We are constantly asking “why” and searching for root causes of symptoms. We use labs, history, tracking, mapping, and symptoms to determine what shifts in lifestyle and nutrition and supplementation we need to get at the upstream cause. We use your body and your personal story as our guide. Together we will organize, track, make changes, and assess how things impact your health.
Often we don’t realize our symptoms or diseases are messages that something is off upstream and needs tending to. General symptoms indicating an imbalance that needs to be addressed include headaches, fatigue, insomnia, brain fog, pms, weight gain, infertility, rashes, achey joints, attention problems, constipation, depression, memory problems, anxiety, irritability, trouble focusing, low sex drive, bloating, gas, water retention, menopause discomforts, and more. Most often those symptoms are not the problem, but instead an upstream imbalance that is causing those symptoms. How loud they have to knock before you listen is up to you.
Integrating Holistic Healthcare, Modern Science, and Ancient Wisdom
I believe people should utilize the best of natural medicine, biochemistry, nutrition, herbs, labs, western medicine, functional medicine, mind/body therapy, spirituality, intuition, and ancient forms of healing to achieve their own personal best health. My tools are food, lifestyle, herbs, attention, listening to your story and methodically mapping out —you. The love of my life, my husband John, is an emergency physician and we help each other see how important both western and holistic medicine are and how both modalities can and need to work synergistically to maximize health for an individual. I believe in community and partnerships and enjoy connecting with other physicians, healthcare practitioners, or anyone on your team. Let’s do this together!
At Mountain Rebalance I look at YOUR unique situation and join your health team to help you feel your best. There is no standard protocol but instead a personalized approach to the whole person. I know you are the best expert on what’s going on with you and I want to help you to take charge your health!
A Refreshing and Empowering Way To Take Control of Your Health
You are not what you eat but instead what you successfully digest/absorb, how well you rest/relax, how appropriately you move, and how well you can clear toxins.
