"BODY, MIND & BELLY TAKES A RADICAL SELF-LOVE APPROACH TO FOOD, LIFESTYLE AND HEALING.
Diet culture can be damaging but understanding and building a healthy relationship with food can be life-changing! Carol"s nutrition practice is not just person-centered. It is a safe and welcoming space that comes with the understanding that relationships with food can be complex and all bodies deserve access to nutrition education that is healing for them.
Carol says, "Eating is SO much more than simply consuming food. During each moment of our lives, our brain, nervous system and body are communicating. Deciding what to eat, how to prepare it, when to eat it and understanding how it affects us inside and out takes some effort and is not as simple as it seems. We already contain all that we need to feel centered, strong and self-compassionate in all that we do, including in our relationship with food."
WHY SHOULD YOU WORK WITH CAROL?
Personalized nutrition therapy with Carol can "help you discover the root causes of your concerns from a holistic viewpoint." She says, "We then collaborate on an accessible and sustainable plan, taking steps toward goals that you are ready, willing and able to make. I am here for those wanting to heal their relationship to food or use shifts in nutrition and lifestyle patterns to manage and support specific medical conditions. Some conditions I often work with are chronic stress and inflammation, anxiety and depression, diabetes type I & II, high blood pressure, gut health issues, nutritional deficiencies like iron deficiency anemia and high cholesterol."
Understanding that people come from different backgrounds and cultures, Carol points out that, "one of the main pillars of my approach is inclusivity, because the environment in which we do this work really matters. LGBTQIA2S , POC and veterans often experience barriers to receiving respectful, culturally sensitive and appropriate care in typical healthcare settings. The interplay and health of your environment, your body, microbiome, mind and spirit are unique to you, and you deserve care that reflects that. I will never just hand you a stack of paper with nutrition information about your medical conditions and tell you to get to work, because we all know that that isn"t how we find positive and lasting change.""
