A big part of my practice involves figuring out best eating practices, including getting to the bottom of food sensitivities, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, and tying eating habits into any pre-existing health issue. There’s a lot of traditional knowledge and modern science involved in figuring this out, and I like to use both. I have a great deal of experience working with diagnosed conditions such as Leaky Gut, Dysbiosis, Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO), Inflammatory Bowel Disease (Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis), Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Malabsorption Syndrome, and others. Using diet therapy in combination with other modalities can help provide more insight into your condition, and help support your foundation. I have found that in many mainstream medical practices, diet is often overlooked as a contributing factor of imbalance. In my practice it’s the opposite — food is central!
Even if there are no major health concerns, knowing which foods can help or hinder a person depending on their constitution can be incredibly helpful! I may ask you about your day to day nutrition in your treatment session and make recommendations accordingly, even if it doesn’t seem related to the main reason for your visit. It may not only include which foods, but also how you are preparing food, and your eating schedule. You might walk away with some great ideas that you’ll enjoy, including some recipe ideas!
