Healthy Skin Care from the Inside Out. Featuring Province Apothecary.

Skin health is a major concern among many people I work with, from acne, to eczema, and rosacea – these conditions that are typically connected to diet and lifestyle factors, including hydration, nutrition, stress levels and hormone balance. As the largest organ of the body, the skin can be sensitive to both internal and external factors, and often reflects a person’s state […]

My trip to Bali. A Plant-Based Paradise & Healthy Travel Destination.

Bali had been at the top of my travel bucket list for many years, so it was exciting to finally make the trip in February. While people had told me that Bali was a Mecca for plant-based food, I was not prepared for the incredible quality and variety of healthy vegan restaurants to be found. Even after exploring a number of these eateries during my stay, I only scratched the surface of all that was available! Overall, the meals I enjoyed were consistently fresh, delicious, nutritious, and inspiringly creative. I appreciated the attention to detail that was given to everything from the beautiful restaurant interiors, to the carefully plated dishes. For many, food plays a major role in the travel experience, and as a food-curious person, I am especially interested in the different cuisines of the places I visit. Travelling can be challenging as a plant-based eater, as many parts of the world are not so veggie-friendly. That said, my Bali experience was all the more special, seeing how easy it was to access incredible plant-based food!

Prioritizing vs. Compromising our basic needs for optimal health.

As a Holistic Health Practitioner, I encourage clients to PRIORITIZE rather than COMPROMISE their basic needs – in the areas of diet, exercise, sleep & stress. Once an individual identifies what their specific physical and emotional needs are, we work on making these needs a priority, to help them live a healthier, and more balanced life. When we compromise our basic needs for the needs of others, we cannot be our best selves, and as a result, cannot GIVE to others in our fullest capacity.

Positive Self-Talk. Holistic Health.

My approach to holistic nutrition is based on the notion that all aspects of a person are interconnected. Recognizing the influence and power of the mind is essential in helping people achieve their diet & lifestyle goals. I encourage my clients to challenge negative self-talk with positive thinking! Harness your thoughts by observing self-destructive inner dialogue or self-doubt, in a non-judgemental way, and mindfully replacing these thoughts with uplifting & motivating statements. Write down any self-defeating thoughts that you notice, and next to them, write a self-compassionate affirmation to counter it.
