Wellness is the compound effect of everything you do, every day.

 

There is a lot you can do to improve your health simply, conveniently and naturally. It doesn't have to be as overwhelming or confusing as it seems; in fact, there are a lot of trends out there that seem "healthy" but that aren't actually that good for you. We have the tools, services and education you need to get you feeling your best using the most efficient methods possible, based entirely on you.

 

Great health is an acomplishment. And one that is easier to achieve when you have the proper support and experience of a practitioner who understands you.

The Wellness Series

Everything in your diet should support you feeling your best.

It can be a bit overwhelming to decide what exactly to choose to feel or look better when we are surrounded by information and conflicting online advice. The most valuable guidance I could offer you as a practitioner therefore isn't one that tells you what to do to become healthier, but instead teaches you how to interact with yourself differently on a fundamental level, so you can connect with your body and intuitively decide for yourself what your next healthy choice should be.

In order to truly feel your best, you first need to understand how your body works and most importantly, what makes it run efficiently.

 

The Wellness Series is a filmed course of my fundamental principles of health including everything you need to consider when making better choices, beginning with re-defining health itself. Choose one or watch them all, the Wellness Series is a compilation of modules each discussing a different topic in detail that can be appreciated in a single set or as a developing wellness program you discover at your own pace.

Wellness as a Lifestyle.

How you nourish yourself on every level determines the quality of your life because being healthy is fundamentally a lifestyle, not just a trend.

 

We are very powerful in influencing our own lives. Everything that we do affects who we are, how we feel, the clarity of our thoughts, the way we experience our lives, the amount of energy we enjoy and even the quality of our relationships. What we surround ourselves with matters greatly in our feeling of overall wellness and stability. The foundation of our health is established by the daily choices we make and your experience of wellness is essentially the compound effect of all of these choices we make, every single day. In today's day in age, with the amount of stress we endure and the declining quality of food available to us, to be considered healthy is actually a great accomplishment. 

 

It can all get a little overwhelming.

 

The best approach is one that is all inclusive, beginning with you and your unique health history. We are all made of the same stuff but are built a little differently, therefore needing different foods, tools and habits to keep us balanced. Understanding this is your first step in sifting through the world of contradicting health advice and figuring out what you need to do for your unique self.  Working alongside an experienced health practitioner can make this journey a little easier and from there, adding in healthier habits, food choices and different wellness tools to help restore balance becomes practical and convenient. Wellness should be simple, and it is with this philosophy that I can help you regain balance.

“ A healer is not someone you go to for healing. A healer is someone who triggers in you your own ability to heal yourself.”

 

As an Ayurvedic Medicine and Holistic Health Practitioner, I specialize in making wellness simple. After my studies in India, I came home full all of an immense amount of incredible ancient wisdom and treatment protocols, excited to present them to the Western world and ambitious to make a real difference in the way we view health and wellness in the States. I quickly realized that we love the concept of "the magic pill" and that we want results quickly and painlessly with the most minimal effort possible, which isn’s necessarily the best approach for lasting health. The ancient art of Ayurveda and finding balance naturally wasn't quite mainstream yet, so I started working on ways to translate this knowledge into practical lifestyle advice and convenient dietary principles that we westerners could easily adapt to but still see real results. Over time I started blending these principles with other modalities to come up with my own unique way of practicing wellness and guiding you towards healing, with simplicity as the foundation. I work with my clients to address their imbalances from the root cause, guiding them towards making their systems efficient enough to balance themselves, which to me is the most honest and responsible way to practice. You are the healer after all, and this is something we can awaken and support together.

 

How to Heal Yourself

IMG_9296.jpg

 

Nothing matters if you're toxic.

 

In order for your home to feel fresh again, you have to take some time to open the windows, dust the off the furniture and tidy up. In our bodies, this translates to everything running efficiently and in flow, beginning with your digestion. It's not so much what you eat, but what your body does with the food that matters. How you digest is the most important starting point when it comes to addressing your health, since your digestion is what transforms your food into nutrients and then into tissues. There can be a disconnect between what we are feeding ourselves and how our body is interpreting these foods however, and this misunderstanding within our own system if often times the cause of our discomforts and even dis-eases.  I always look at digestion first therefore, because as we strengthen this system, everything else runs more efficiently - and efficiency is the path to overall health. Starting with a clean slate internally means our bodies  are rested and realigned with enough energy to absorb nutrients to then re build our systems properly. A supervised detox tailored to you is recommended from time to time to re-align and re-connect your brain-gut axis and is the first step we take when we want to initiate a healing response in our bodies, but none of these harsh cleanses or extreme diets will get you there. Balance is always the key. 

 

Our bodies are perfect and are designed to heal themselves. Sometimes they need a little help, so it's a good idea to work with a professional who can guide you according to you and your unique constitution. Lifestyle adjustments, light detoxations, dietary changes and therapeutic treatments are a great way to reset and clear the channels. Sometimes all we need is a few adjustments here and there to start feeling great again. We already have the answers within us, we simply have to learn to interpret our symptoms to figure out what our bodies need. This is actually quite simple and an extremely effective healing tecnique that has you feeling great long term.
