Do you sometimes feel like you are on an emotional roller coaster ride? Happy one moment and cranky the next? Are you tired of blaming all your moods and aches and pains on your hormones, like it’s out of your control and there is nothing you can do? Can’t understand why you rocked your workout at the gym last week and this week it feels like torture?
Psst! I’ll let you in on a secret.
Putting up with these things is NOT part of ‘being a woman’.
This course is designed to educate and empower you to maximize each phase of your menstrual cycle. You will briefly return to highschool health class, but with a twist. You will review the basics of each cycle phase and then learn which foods and what exercise best supports you during each phase. Instead of looking at the negatives of specific phases (e.g., dreading the days before your period), you will learn how to eat, think, exercise, and plan your life activities to maximize your power in each stage. Your will learn practical methods for adjusting your personal environment to support your hormone balance to achieve health and well-being.
I am a graduate of the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition. I have a BSc in Biology from the University of Western Ontario (and am obsessed with life-long learning).
My passion for women’s wellness came out of necessity, as I battled with my own hormone balance. Overwhelmed by information and misinformation, I felt there had to be practical ways for women to tune into their own bodies and bring health and happiness back into their daily life. In my nutrition practice, I believe in keeping things simple and practical, and that is the way my courses are designed. My philosophy for personal health is “Education. Empowerment. Ease.” I believe that if you learn about your own body and how it works, you will have more control of your health. This power gives you the ability to live your best life.
When I am not researching and teaching practical holistic nutrition information, I am leading cyclists and hikers on amazing vacations, coaching children in the fine art of alpine ski racing, or running up a mountain-side in my beautiful home, the Canadian Rockies.
