NOURISH YOUR ROOTS

8 WEEKS OF RADICAL SELF CARE AND NUTRITION SUPPORT

starting January 15th, 2021

For "NOURISHING YOUR ROOTS"

So many of us are over-stressed, under-nourished, under-slept and overweight.

We are not operating with a full cup anymore. But it's time to change that. Don't you think?

When we find ways to care for ourselves and keep our cup filled EVERY day, we can be our authentic selves, love more easily, be more productive at work, sleep better, feel better and enjoy this precious life of ours more.

At the end of the winter lock down, you can emerge renewed and ready for your life. But this isn't the time for extreme diets or demanding workout schedules.

It's time for radical self care.

Most New Year's programs fail for three reasons:

  1. There isn't enough support for long enough to make the new habits STICK.

  2. There is only attention to one aspect of health. Like diet or exercise.

  3. The approach is so extreme that it can't be sustained for the rest of the year.

That's why you are going to succeed here!

  • You will get regular support for 8 weeks. More than enough time to see the fruits of your efforts and create habits that will last. This group is your commitment to yourself.

  • This community will be here to catch you when you fall off the wagon so that you get back on right away. We EXPECT you to fall off now and then and that's OK. Without the support and accountability, it's easy to just feel like a failure and stop.

  • Here, we will focus on the whole person. Diet, exercise, stress reduction, and sleep will be the focus to create sustainable self-care routines you can maintain all year long.

  • And we will be supporting a LIFESTYLE, not a diet. Sure, we may suggest doing a short sugar-free challenge to kick the habit together. But the rest will just build habits and knowledge gradually.

Here, you will get:

Two private 45-minute coaching sessions to help you customize your program,

  • An online platform to find all your modules to learn about nutrition, stress-reduction strategies and circadian rhythms.

  • Weekly live group coaching sessions. 6pm PT on Fridays. (another will be added if the group is too large)

  • Regular emails with videos and coaching materials to get you on track and keep you there.

  • Tasks to check off to stay accountable.

Price: $465 Discounts for current clients. Coupon codes available from health care partners like Ridgefield Family Medicine, Hudson Health and Battle Ground Healing Arts.

I hope you will join me. You can pay in full, or put $100 deposit down to save your spot. Space will be limited to keep the group size just right.

Nutrition 101: Metabolic Reset.

Online nutrition course provided asynchronously to you for 4 weeks.


This class forms the foundation of healthy eating. I recommend it to nearly all my new clients. Just this class has resulted in people lowering their cholesterol, improving their energy levels, losing weight and finally understanding how food affects their mood and cravings.


For "METABOLIC RESET"

Do the Metabolic Reset any time on your own schedule and get started on healing to reverse or prevent:

Type 2 diabetes

Pre-diabetes/Metabolic syndrome

PCOS

Estrogen dominance

High cholesterol

High blood pressure

Hard to lose "spare tire"

Low testosterone

Fatty liver

Low thyroid

Adrenal fatigue


Work with me for a month! Learn how your metabolism works and work with your body instead of fighting it.

Nutrition 101: Metabolic Reset is a 4-week series provided online to do on your own schedule.

This class is designed to give participants the knowledge about how their own digestion and metabolism works so they are better able to make good nutrition and health decisions for themselves and their families. Topics covered are:

Class 1: Digestion and common digestive problems, microbiome and stress-reduction methods.

Class 2: Carbohydrate metabolism, blood sugar regulation, insulin resistance, energy regulation and diabetes prevention.

Class 3: Protein needs. Understand your needs, and how to get enough no matter what kind of diet your follow.

Class 4: Healthy fats and putting it all together. (There is some good news in here and a great chocolate pudding recipe!)

These topics will be connected to how to avoid diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular disease, manage a healthy weight, improve energy, avoid chronic digestive problems, getting the right amount of protein and carbohydrates, building a healthy microbiome and more. The class will not promote any particular type of diet other than one comprised mainly of whole and minimally processed foods. Participants should expect to take this knowledge and be able to navigate the complicated waters of health and nutrition trends.

Each week, you will receive an email with links to the hour-long presentation, the slides, handouts, and some recipes. At the end of each class, there will be recommended homework to help you integrate what we learn into your own life. For example, after the protein class, you will learn how to assess your own protein needs, assess how much you are eating and use the information provided to make modifications. This will give you concrete tools to start using right now to begin customizing your diet and start narrowing in on what works best for you.

I encourage my new clients to sign up for this, as it provides them with everything I would teach them one-to-one, but with more detail and for a real cost reduction.

This class is suitable for adults, high school students and interested middle grade students. I always recommend the whole household watch it so they can support each other in better health.

People wanting more support find it helpful to schedule an initial appointment with me before the class, then follow-up appointments after class 2 and class 4. But this can also be done independently.

JUST BREATHE

A week of free instruction in breath work.


A deep breathing practice (also called pranayama) might be one of the

most important stress-reduction tools in your tool box.

Learn to come immediately to the present moment and reduce stress using the classic tool of breath work as taught to me by my teachers Dr. Shrikrishna and Dona Holleman.


Watch the replays on my Facebook page. Each class builds on the one before, so be sure to watch it in order.
