Wellness is a state of being that we all have the ability to achieve. Food, fresh air, and plant-based medicine can help get us there.  Everything we put into or on to ourselves impacts our health–positively or negatively.  I can help you sift through the noise and create a wellness plan that is simple and works for you.  Bring your family, and join me on your journey to wellness!

My philosophy is simple: We can achieve family wellness through real food, nature, and natural medicine.

When we work together, we will explore your family, your goals, and how to best achieve those goals in these three primary areas–real food, nature, and natural medicine.

Food has the power to heal, nurture {our bodies and souls}, and allow us to thrive. Real food is food that is fresh, full of color, and filled with amazing flavor. It’s organic when affordable and comes from a farmer that you’ve met at the farmer’s market, or a CSA in your town, or a neighboring state.  It’s the stuff that makes us feel good after a meal–because we’re proud of what we served our family and we know that we’re making food that is good and is good for us. Real food is different than much of what’s sold on the shelves of your local grocery store–and it can be confusing to walk into the store and determine what’s real, and what we should be leaving at the store.  I can help you make sense of this–one of my favorite things to do is to meet clients at the grocery store and chat about food while we shop for your weekly groceries.

Did you know? A walk outside boosts the immune system. 10-15 minutes of sunshine provides 100% of our daily Vitamin D requirements. Stopping to smell the flowers actually does lower stress and relieve anxiety. And Smithsonian Magazine reports that the smell of rain reminds us of the color green–which is linked with the growth of the plants and animals we need to eat, explaining why it smells so good to us. Spending time outdoors increases energy levels in 90% of the population–try a walk before you reach for that next cup of coffee!  Fresh air is crucial to who we are and how we feel.  When we work together, spending time together with your family outside will be part of your homework.

Natural medicine comes from living plants.  It is organic or certified pure therapeutic grade.  It can be in the form of homeopathic or herbal remedies, which includes essential oils.  It can even {sometimes} be made at home.  What I love most about natural medicine is that it is intended to bring the body into a state of homeostasis, or balance.  Balance can be increasingly difficult to find in today’s always-connected, always-moving world, but today more than ever, it’s critical for every member of our families.  We will work together to evaluate your needs and your family’s needs, and address those needs directly.

Wellness is an adventure in real food, fresh air, and natural healing–start your family’s today!

One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.

The single greatest lesson the garden teaches is that our relationship to the planet need not be zero-sum, and that as long as the sun still shines and people still can plan and plant, think and do, we can, if we bother to try, find ways to provide for ourselves without diminishing the world.
