"After being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, I did what I was taught as a Pharmacist to do. I listened to my doctor and I took the pills, but I never found the health or healing that I was looking for. It was only through changing my eating habits that I learned that food is indeed medicine."

Nutrition Services

Our bodies are uniquely created to utilize important components in the food we eat for critical functions, such as building and rebuilding tissue, creating energy, and even for turning on or off genes that lead to health or disease. In other words, we have some control over the trajectory of our own health by being purposeful about what we put in our mouths every day. Food is medicine. Eating a diet rich in whole, real foods can supply healing nourishment, while eating a typical American diet full of processed foods will not only provide little nourishment, it can actually rob our bodies of the very vitamins we need to promote healing. Are you ready to change the trajectory of your health?

Are you tired of not feeling well, and not finding the health or healing that you are searching for? Are you reading to start a new journey with customized nutrition and lifestyle recommendations based on your specific health and wellness goals? Are you looking for a kick-start into a new healthy eating lifestyle tailored just for you?

We begin with a 25 minute FUNCTIONAL NUTRITION Strategy Session.

Are you experiencing:

  • Fatigue?
  • Brain fog?
  • Joint pain?
  • Belly bloat?
  • Food cravings?
  • Food sensitivities?
  • Stalled metabolism?

The Embrace Wellness Nutrition Program is a 6-week step-by-step nutrition & lifestyle program to increase your overall energy, reduce inflammation, conquer your cravings, boost your metabolism, and help you to embrace wellness. This program is centered around the core belief that eating healthy is about ABUNDANCE, not deprivation.

Our 14 day Group Detox Programs are conducted in a closed Facebook group and led by our Nutrition Educator. You will receive a 14 day Detox Kit, a blender bottle, and a Program Guidebook with a supplement schedule, sample menus, and suggested food and snack options. We have found that participation in a group detox is more enjoyable as it helps with accountability, inspiration, and encouragement!
