Understand the what, when, why and how much for your special diet.
I help adults and children successfully manage special diets, including, but not limited to diets that are: gluten free, dairy free, grain free, paleo, specific carbohydrate diet (SCD) and low carb.
I work with individuals who have a variety of digestive, autoimmune and chronic conditions, such as celiac disease, Crohn’s disease, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, cancer, irritable bowel syndrome, fibromyalgia, chronic pain and others.
At least 80% of all chronic illnesses are due to diet and lifestyle. Proper nutrition is an undeniable key to good health, regardless of one’s age or stage in life. Food provides the energy and nutrients needed to build and regenerate body tissue, muscle, bone and blood. Nutrients also support the many chemical processes that take place in the body on a daily basis. Over 90% of the immune system exists within the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Both need support for disease prevention and management.
