Hi, I'm Amy!
As a Holistic Nutritionist I help women improve their relationship with food, decrease cravings and reach their health goals.
The world of nutrition can be overwhelming and contradictory. I'm here to help you sort fact from fiction and put your food dollars where they count.
Already know what to eat but having trouble making it happen? Implementation and making lasting changes is 80% of the battle. We'll discuss your tastes, schedule, budget, goals and health history and develop a personalized plan. As a foodie I also make sure you’re eating food that tastes good!
I have a special focus on women's health, sustainable weight loss and nutritional support for anxiety and depression. I believe in education and empowerment and help my clients to understand their bodies and conditions, interpret their symptoms and implement necessary changes.
I'm currently working as a Holistic Nutritionist at the Thunder Bay Naturopathic Clinic and am also available for Skype or FaceTime consultations for clients outside of Thunder Bay.
What is Holistic Nutritionist?
Holistic comes from the word whole.
Like a dietician, my job is to help my clients figure out what to eat. While a dietician follows the Canada’s Food Guide, as a Holistic Nutritionist I recognize that there is no one size fits all diet and assists my clients in discovering a way of eating that best supports their goals while recognizing their unique preferences and bio-individuality. Many people don’t feel optimal while following recommendations such as 3 cups of milk and 8 servings of grains per day, my job is to help you find the diet that leaves you feeling your best while preventing any nutritional deficiencies. I often work alongside dieticians to provide the best care for our clients.
I work alongside Naturopathic Doctors and may recommend supplements or testing including nutrient or hormone levels, food sensitivities and more.
