Naturopath, Master Nutrition Therapist and Wellness Coach
Welcome to Nourishing Within....A Resource for Wellbeing
I founded Nourishing Within in 2001 while completing my studies at Nutrition Therapy Institute (NTI) in Denver, Colorado. In 2011, I became an ANMA Board Certified Naturopath and now have almost 20 years of experience and education in the holistic and alternative health field. I am very passionate about wellness education and am continually studying and learning new modalities to support patients (aka "partners") in achieving their goals. Additional modalities include Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA), Holistic Iridology, Massage Therapy, Esthetics, and Quantum Reflex Analysis (QRA). Most recently I've been studying and implementing the teachings of Anthony William, Medical Medium. I am a teacher at heart and my goal is to pass on as much of what I've learned over all these years.
I truly believe the body can and will heal itself given the proper nourishment, time and patience. I have
experienced this personally as have many of those I've partnered with over the years. I practice the
Eastern philosophy of Naturopathy which is to focus on the whole person, mind, body and spirit (not
religion) and addressing root cause.
Proper nourishment is the foundation of health, therefore it's the foundational teachings at Nourishing
Within. Nourishment is much more than food. It's lifestyle, relationships, profession, the way you think
and feel about yourself, others, and the world. All of these individually and combined have the ability to
either nourish or harm. Identifying proper and complete nourishment takes understanding the individual from conception to current age, including lineage. We are a culmination of all of this and the answer of what is currently going on lies within that story. An simple example is: One hasn't properly nourished themselves for many years and endured lots of stress, the body broke down over time and is now symptomatic. Upon visiting their doctor and with testing they been given a diagnosis (or multiple diagnoses) and medicine(s) are prescribed. My philosophy is not to focus on the symptom(s) or diagnosis...that's futile. My approach would be to educate the individual so they understand what led them there, and what and how to change to restore and re-balance their health. If root issues are not identified and rectified, the issue will continue, or move to another area in the body, or manifest as a different symptom or issue.
I understand the struggles that challenge us to maintain a balanced life. We all have them. And, when health deteriorates and we begin to lose or have lost the battle, reaching out for help is crucial. If addressing root cause and is your desire, I would love to partner, support, educate and encourage you.
