WHY A LIVING BALANCE?
Since 2008, A Living Balance has helped clients reach their desired weight, improve energy and vitality, experience increased brain function, balance hormones, improve digestion, and reduce anxiety and depression.
I view each person who comes to me as an unique individual with specific needs.
I see the body as a whole entity that needs to be teased and touched on every sensory level to keep the mind, body, and spirit integrated and healthy.
The three main body systems I focus on and have found to be at the root cause of most chronic disease, are the digestive system, hormones, and detoxification systems. With attention to these, along with examining eating and lifestyle habits, we’re able to root out the source and cause of imbalances and implement repair.
I’ve recently expanded my practice to offer Preconception counseling and Prenatal care. The childbearing year is a special time for a woman and her partner. I’m here to help you optimize your health prior and during pregnancy.
The services I provide are meant to be used in conjunction with the care you receive from your doctor.
I work with my clients at my Irvine office as well as remotely using Zoom or phone. I teach to groups via lectures, workshops, or webinars.
A little bit about me: I hold a bachelor of science degree in Dietetics and Food Administration and was certified by the Institute of Functional Medicine in 2008.
I had my own healing crisis in 2002. It was precipitated by a divorce and contributed to adrenal fatigue and a very compromised digestive system, including leaky gut. After giving up hope of being helped by western medicine, I learned to heal myself using the Functional Medicine, root cause approach. My own health crisis has enabled me to better understand and help my clients.
I receive immense pleasure and satisfaction watching my clients heal and get better.
I’m also a certified yoga instructor, passionate about creating and exposing others to yummy, nourishing food, blogger, lecturer, and a mother of two wonderful grown sons.
I look forward to being able to help you feel happy, healthy, vital, and on top of your game at any age.
