Eat. Play. Balance.™

My Approach

Well-being is the state in which your physical, mental, and spiritual health are in balance, unlocking your body’s natural abilities to heal and perform in it’s optimal state.

Health goes beyond what we eat and is multi-dimensional. I will help you get empowered with knowledge and motivation to take preventive measures to take care of your health goals or to take on your existing health challenges head-on and achieve incredible results.

I strongly believe food can be medicine, and that nutrition should be not an afterthought, but rather the foundation of wellness. Nutrient-dense, high-quality foods provide a foundation for health.

When it comes to health, there’s a lot of focus on food – just go on any social media platform and you can see what I mean. But I also believe that your “Play-list" is just as important as eating healthy. Long term health and happiness is rooted in positive lifestyle changes.

Themind and body are inextricably connected. What affects one affects the other. Food affects your brain and thoughts affect your digestion and immune system. Health is holistic and we have to look at all aspects to make sure its all supporting your needs.

You will get the information useful for your unique circumstances and also unlearn what isn’t true for you. This is the backbone of my approach. You will learn to determine the unique mix of the right foods to Eat and how to Play in ways that works for you, so you can Balance a healthy life and live youthfully with your best energy and health no matter what age you are.

Diet is Deprivation - Food is Fulfillment

Food is the #1 determinant of health and disease during your lifetime. Your relationship with food is fundamental to how you approach eating and enjoying food.

Food can change everything. By learning about holistic wellness and nutrition, you can prevent and reverse chronic disease, reduce health crises, and empower yourself to take control of your health and well-being.

Food is energy

Food is health

Food is brain power

Food is fun

Food is traveling around the world

Food is love, emotion, family, holidays, rituals, memories, and childhood associations

Food is for celebrating, for enjoying, for taking us to the spices and delicacies around the world, for traditions and rituals, and so much more.

Food is so many things at so many times. So let's say yes to the nutrition in food and to all the enjoyments that food brings.

I consider diet as an “eating-style” and not as deprivation. Many “eating-styles” can be effective and I will help you figure out the “eating-style" that works for you. The key point is that an eating style isunique to each person and their physical body and emotions and that it will change over time. I'm sure you’ve heard the cliché. "One person’s food is another person's poison” and there is plenty of truth to that.

“Play” is everything that gives you nourishment but that doesnt appear on your plate. Everything we consider as food and nutrition is really just a secondary source of energy.

We hunger for play (fun, touch, romance, intimacy, love, achievement, success, art, music, self-expression, leadership, excitement,adventure, and spirituality)!! All these elements are essential forms of nourishment.

I am going to help you explore and develop the power of alternative practices and to discover how to infuse joy and fulfillment into your everyday life… in other words, how to “play” again.

Do you remember what it was like when you were a kid?

You’d be playing outside with your friends when your parent called you in to eat dinner. “But I’m not hungry yet,” you’d say. At the table, your parent would instruct you to eat your food. Eventually, you’d force down a minimally acceptable amount of food and rush out again to play. At the end of the day, you’d return, exhausted, and go to sleep without thinking about food at all.

Have you ever known anyone super-health-conscious who pays great attention to the food they put into their bodies and deprives themselves? Have you ever known anyone who spends time with friends and family laughing together and eating burgers and fries and drinking soda who seems happier and healthier than the super-health-conscious individuals? That's the proof that there is more to health than the food we put on our plate.

Finding the Balance is not only a key factor in helping you transform to your optimal health but also in being able to sustain your transformation for the long run.

Being healthy is not just about the food on your plate; it’s about the water you drink, the air you breathe, the love in your life, the amount you exercise, whether you have a fulfilling career and spiritual practice, and so on. These other aspects of your health nourishments and the food you eat should be looked at together rather than separately.

Although it is critical to understand what you are eating and to make improvements to what you are eating, it is secondary to the totality of what you are doing in life. Great food and nutrition does not come close to giving us the joy, meaning, fulfillment and energy that we can achieve by correctly Balancing all these areas.

I will explore with you the concept of nourishment outside of the food you put in your mouth. A nourishing life is built by a fulfilling career, loving relationships, an energizing and rejuvenating exercise routine, and a spiritual practice that soothes and invigorates.

When we feel satisfied in the core areas of life including exercise, spirituality, career, and relationships, and these areas are balanced, food is secondary. Healthy relationships, regular physical activity, a fulfilling career, and a spiritual practice can fill your soul and satisfy your hunger for life. You could be eating all the kale and broccoli in the world, but if you’re not nourishing yourself on a holistic level, you will not feel vibrant. There’s no secret formula – each person is unique.

To create the balance, we often have to make changes that might be intimidating and require to face some fears. This could mean taking a leap in a career, ending a relationship that’s not serving you, signing up for a marathon, or embarking on a meditation challenge.

Ultimately, we will identify what is not in Balance and determine where to spend more time and energy to create Balance.
