Nutritional genomics is an important and relatively new area of science which studies the interaction between genetics, nutrition and health. Nutrigenomics analyzes the different ways people respond to food based on their genetic make-up, including the risk of developing chronic diseases (type 2 diabetes, obesity, heart disease, stroke and certain cancers). I focus on specific genes and use nutrition to influence them. I are excited to be on the forefront of this exciting new area of science.
Hormones affect every part of your body, including your mood, weight, skin, energy level, and libido. At Heal Well Nutrition, I focus on the HPA (hypothalamic-pituitary adrenal) axis when evaluating hormones. The HPA axis includes the thyroid, adrenals, and sex hormones (estrogen, progesterone, testosterone). I evaluate all aspects of life, including physical, emotional, nutritional and environmental to find the cause of your symptoms. I will work with you one on one to alleviate them so you can lead a happy and healthy life.
Gastrointestinal (GI) issues such as GERD (acid reflux), SIBO, candida, colitis, Crohn's disease, and IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) are becoming more prevalent in society. GI health can be at the root of many other health problems including brain fog, fatigue, skin conditions, and autoimmune disease. In fact, 80% of your immune system is in your gut! Constipation, diarrhea, bloating, fatigue, and pain can be symptoms of a compromised GI system. I believe your gut is your second brain. I will work with you to optimize your gut health.
Each year, more than 4 billion pounds of chemical compounds are released into the environment. These foreign compounds that can enter our bodies through the food we eat, the air we breathe, and directly through our skin. All of these factors contribute to an accumulation of toxins, or toxicity. Symptoms include headaches, joint and muscle pain, hormonal disturbances, inability to lose weight, low energy, poor sleep, chronic fatigue, brain fog, and many more! The term detoxification refers to our body's natural ability to transfer and eliminate toxins. Your toxic body burden depends on toxicant exposure, genetic predisposition, and proper nutrition. I will work with you to develop a plan to safely eliminate toxins from your body.
