Do you like your doctor and you don’t want to switch to a Naturopath… but want more natural health recommendations?
NourishRX is a program designed specifically for people who have health conditions and who may be taking medicine to help manage their health. It is for those who want to maintain their health more naturally, while continuing to take their prescribed medications.
A Registered Holistic Nutritionist’s approach will work one on one with clients, and develop a diet that incorporates natural foods and supplements for optimal health. The new food preparation techniques introduced will aide in the digestion and absorption of key nutrients and allow the vitamins and minerals to be more bio-available to the body.
All nutrition recommendations work in conjunction with your doctor’s recommendations for chronic health conditions and go along with any medicine you take to manage a health condition.
Holistic nutrition is a combination of modern science and time-tested wisdom based on the philosophy that each person has unique nutritional requirements.
Kathy will assess your nutritional health and recommend specific food and preparation methods to provide the most nutrients for the body’s imbalances or deficiencies.
Many diseases begin in the gut. A slow digestive system may be the culprit of many health conditions. Kathy will get to the root of the issue that is affecting you and help build up your digestive energy to easily digest and absorb the nutrients from the food you are eating.
