As a Registered Dietitian, I have always been interested in the impact of nutrition on health
and wellness. Many chronic diseases like heart disease and diabetes may be up to 80%
preventable with a healthy diet and lifestyle. Research has consistently shown the positive impact of nutrition counselling and intervention on many medical conditions and overall
As my career has progressed, I’ve become even more inspired by the link between food and well-being. This is what spawned my interest in Integrative and Functional Nutrition.
The best part of integrative nutrition and health care is that this approach “integrates” both conventional and complementary therapies into one comprehensive plan, providing the best of both worlds. This wellness model focuses on the “whole person” and the unique impact of factors such as genetic predisposition and environment as well as psychological and physical causes for disease. Integrative nutrition advocates using “food as medicine” and complements traditional medical approaches and complementary therapies to identify and treat the root cause of a patient’s illness.
I am happy to collaborate with members of your healthcare team to find solutions to better your health. But above all, I look forward to guiding you towards optimized dietary and lifestyle decisions to achieve your best level of health.
