how I can help
By helping my clients switch to whole foods and alleviate nutritional deficiencies my clients lose unwanted weight, improve digestion and intestinal health, lessen food cravings and food sensitivities, and relieve symptoms associated with depression, anxiety, and mood swings.
I offer my clients Thorne Brand Supplements to alleviate deficiencies and to reverse the damage done by consuming a diet high in processed sugars, starches, and bad oils. Supplements need to be taken in the right dose, form, and frequency.
