It Starts with Food

Food is a fundamental part of life, and crucial to our existence.  I think that most people would agree that life would be miserable without food, yet we still seem to be debating what a healthy diet is and is there one diet that suits us all?


Whilst there are some common recommendations and short-term dietary plans that we suggest to our clients, your long-term nutritional needs should be based on a detailed health and nutritional assessment to determine your food and nutritional requirements.  There is no point in following a "diet trend" if it doesn't support your long-term health and vitality.

 

We believe nutrition is the foundation of all good wellness program, and the gateway to disease prevention.  A good nutritional program should be centred around eating real food that is seasonally grown and sourced from local suppliers.  

 

What you eat, when you eat, and how much you eat is also an important factor of our dietary recommendations. We encourage our clients to eat foods that are fresh and packed with nutrition.  These include grass fed meat, sustainable sources of seafood, free range eggs, local and seasonal fresh vegetables, and fruits, healthy sources of fats and oils, nuts, and whole grains.  

 

Create Good Habits

Implementing good nutritional habits from your very first visit with us is so important that we provide all our clients with comprehensive and detailed handouts that are designed to walk you through our nutritional programs.  We offer our clients a choice of either a 30 day Paleo based eating program or our G.E.M.M based Gut and Metabolic Restoration Program.  

 

Both programs include all the tools you’ll need to succeed, including:

 

  • A list of food groups that support and promote health and vitality

  • Detailed Food Guides that include advice on selecting high quality food choices

  • Meal planning template, outlining portion sizes and meal frequency

  • Recommendations on fasting, restricted eating timing, and food combining for optimal nutrition 

 

The G.E.M.M. Protocol focuses on restoring our digestive ecosystem by address key upstream cellular processes that target cellular inflammation, immune regulation and metabolic processes that are involved with acute and chronic disease.  Clinical research has shown effective treatment and management in the following conditions.

The Whole 30 Program

Now available as an E Book, the Whole30 Program could change your life in 30 days.

 

Based on the original 2009 success program, the Whole30 eating plan is designed to reset you're eating habits by eliminating many common foods that are associated with food reactivity and food addiction. 

 

The 30-day reset program helps re-establish healthy food connections, identifies food intolerance, and helps you regain control of what you put on your plate.

 

Elimination programs have been used by medical practitioners for many years and are often referred to as the Gold Standard in identifying food reactivity.  

 

There are no limitations on the food you eat, just a detailed list of foods that must be avoided during the program. On completion of the program, a slow introduction of whole foods is re-introduced back to the diet to ensure optimal nutritional intake and diversity in the diet.
