MY PHILOSOPHY

We believe in the fundamentals of functional medicine. Every person's body is different and beautifully unique. One size does not fit all.

Many knowledgeable, recognized healthcare professionals have different views - vegan, vegetarian, pescetarian, raw, paleo, macrobiotic. What is right for you depends on your individual makeup. However, there are commonalities - whole, single ingredient, plant-based foods are good for you. We believe in focusing on a diet filled with these foods, and "supplementing" with others. Ditch the processed. Focus on foods with one ingredient that have not been tainted by chemicals, preservatives and man-made fillers.

At HAN, we work together to co-create completely personalized actions based on your goals to move you toward your ideal vision of health within your unique body, lifestyle, preferences and resources. We do it with practicality, humor and authenticity. We aim to work with my clients to discover the best match for them. Everyone has multiple characteristics that influence what their body likes and dislikes. It is important to look at the whole picture, weighing in exercise, tendencies, digestion, allergies, stress level, mental health, current lifestyle and background history to determine what is best. We work together to acknowledge these factors and provide guidance that will lead you to nutritional success. 

It's time to get in touch with your body’s individual needs. We equip you with the self-awareness to make the best decisions for yourself in any given circumstance. Everyone is fully capable of making well-informed decisions as their own expert, and not according to the latest magazine article or fad diet book.

Let’s define what you value most from your well-being. We’ll use these visions to motivate specific goals that bring you closer to where you want to be. Together we’ll co-create your health goals within reasonable time frames and actionable objectives so you know exactly what you’re working toward.
 

Here are some concepts that we will explore during our work together:

Bio-IINdividuality*

The concept of Bio-IINndividuality 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.

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.

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 along the way.
