Supporting women through all stages of life
Food is the essence of life, but sometimes it can get tricky to know what would should be eating and why. We will help support your health at what ever stage of life you are at with easy to follow recommendations, recipes and personalized support so that food can be nurturing not something restrictive.
How does it work?
Supporting your health through good nutrition habits and food choices can often seem daunting and overwhelming, especially if you are experiencing health issues. There are so many questions we can answer together. What foods are the right foods for you to eat at this stage in your life? How can you improve your digestion and get rid of the bloating and constipation? When is the best time to eat certain foods and why?
When you work with a registered holistic nutritionist, over a 4-6 week period, we will break it all down. During this time we will have conversations and get down to the root of your health issues. You will get guidance, follow ups and recommendations for the nutrition you need now and the future to come. At the Women’s Health Centre, we take a WHOLE BODY approach to your health which we address in 3 important steps:
Step 1 - ASSESS & ADDRESS YOUR HEALTH CONCERNS
Let’s take the time to talk and get to the root of your health issues. Sometimes it is hard to figure out what foods are the right ones to eat…we can help with that and provide healthy, easy to follow recipes you can cook at home. We will work within your budget, time and give you options for healthy eating not diets and restrictions.
Step 2 - investigate & nourish your whole body
Let’s investigate the other factors that affect your life. What nourishes your body, mind and spirit? How’s your stress levels and your sleep? With a few simple tasks and adjustments you will improve the things that aren’t supporting you and get you back to feeling your best!
Step 3 - PLANTING THE SEED FOR GOOD HEALTH
Our goal is to create lasting positive nutrition habits for the future to come, setting you up for good health as you age. After our time together you will feel confident in preparing and cooking meals, have a collection of recipes to enjoy, set some personal movement goals and have a better handle on the daily tools you can use to support your health.
What is the cost?
The price for nutrition consulting will vary from a 4 to 6 week plan. Plans start at $400+HST and will include a comprehensive consultation with a registered holistic nutritionist, email check-ins and followups, lifestyle recommendations, recipes, exercises and weekly tasks. Invest in your health now and be the best version of yourself!
Find out how your meals can support and nurture your body
Foods in TCM (traditional Chinese medicine) have certain properties and affects on the body after eaten. Cold food can exacerbate a cold feeling in the body and spicy food can add fuel to the internal heat you may already feel inside. Grilled or baked foods have a drying affect on the body and stewed foods and soups have a moistening affect.
Some foods are helpful for building our bones, hair, muscles, cells, fluid and energy. These include carbohydrates, protein and fat found in animal products, nuts/seeds, legumes, tubers/root vegetables and whole grains. Although they are highly nutritious, if we eat too much of these building foods it can create some stagnation inside, which could create inflammation in the body, joint pain and digestive issues.
Other foods have a clearing or moving quality to them…they often have fiber in them which helps to clear away built up toxins and helps the bowels to move. They include legumes, whole grains, green vegetables, bitter melon, sweet potato, seeds, fruit and bitter greens.
