I was fascinated with food and where it came from. I’ve always enjoyed the taste of fresh and clean fruit and vegetables, and even the way they’ve made me feel – energised. I also understood that I needed to eat a certain way to be able to do the things that kept me feeling alive and happy.
Yet, it wasn’t until after my mother’s passing to colon cancer that my devotion to nutrition took on a new shape. I was ready to make it my life’s quest. I embarked on a nutritional journey, studying holistic nutrition at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, and started to think about what ‘dis-ease’ really meant to the human body. I’ve come to believe that the human body is innately healthy, well-balanced and ‘at ease’. Yet due to negative nutritional, physical and emotional factors, the body can escape this natural state of wellbeing. This is when the body enters into a state of imbalance and what leads to chronic illnesses.
Ideally, we want to maintain balance and harmony between our mental, physical and emotional body. When any of these components are off-balance or disrupted, we must identify that imbalance and work to bring the body back ‘at ease’. I realise that every person is unique and will respond to different nutritional, cultural, emotional and social influences. That’s why no single way of eating works for everyone. Food that might make you feel energised and strong might make someone else feel tired and lethargic. Therefore, I’m an advocate for listening to one’s body, and I appreciate the nuances of taste, metabolism and anatomy as major factors in crafting a holistic nutrition regimen for my clients.
