Philosophy: I believe that our bodies were created with an innate wisdom to heal themselves, provided we give them the necessary elements to repair, heal and return to a state of vitality.
Mission: My mission is to educate people how to preserve their health and vitality. Sometimes this involves regaining health lost through poor nutrition, malabsorption, unhealthy lifestyle, autointoxication, environmental factors, etc.
Purpose: My purpose is to help anyone who desires to be well understand how to have vibrant health. I truly believe that as long as there is breath there is hope.
Why Nutritional Counseling?
Nutritional counseling becomes part of a bigger picture of restoring vitality.
So often we don’t know where our food comes from, how it is grown, whether it is chemically processed or devitalized.
Exploring the way we eat and the source of our daily bread offers new insight into why we feel depleted.
It can help with
Deficiencies in pancreatic enzymes may contribute to malabsorption and associated problems, including alterations to the microbiome, steatorrhea, weight loss, bloating, and other digestive discomfort.
Some common causes of fatigue include, but are not limited to, sleep, diet, anemia, depression, hypothyroidism, caffeine overload, diabetes, dehydration, heart disease, lack of regular exercise.
Heavy Metal Detox
Heavy metals are in the air we breathe, the food we eat and the water we drink. The body stores what it can’t eliminate.
Organic Food-Based Supplements
All supplements are not created equal. Very often, you are not getting what you pay for when you purchase supplements from a discount store.
Weight gain has many causes. It can simply be poor diet and lack of exercise.
However, it can also be hormonal imbalance or toxins.
Sometimes during prolonged stress, we need nutraceuticals or dietary changes that influence the parasympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for the relaxing “rest and digest” state, as opposed to the “fight or flight” feelings of agitation and anxiety induced by the sympathetic nervous system.
“Her extensive knowledge of health, nutrition, and preventative medicine is astounding. Combined with her state of the art equipment, I have no doubt that Bonnie can help anyone who is experiencing issues become properly informed and aware of why they are occurring. She taught me many things I never knew about my body, and gave me the right steps and tools to help build a path to a healthier life.”
