Did you know that this generation of young people is the first that is forecast to have a shorter life expectancy than their parents? 1 in 3 or 4 children born in the year 2000 will develop diabetes at some point in their lifetime… The prevalence of overweight children among 6-11 year olds has doubled in the past 20 years and tripled for teens.
Adopting healthy behavior can have lifelong consequences. The goal of this education is not only to increase the parent’s health knowledge, but to create healthy behavior in the children of those parents. Health Education is most effective if parents are involved.
CNC – Certified Nutritional Consultant. I provide education in nutrition for the individual seeking to regain their health as well as group seminars for parents and their children on health issues. Proper nutrition in the school age years can reinforce lifelong eating habits that contribute to a student’s overall well being. This will help them to grow and learn to their fullest potential, and then go on to lead a long, healthy life. I provide an introduction to the human body and to factors that prevent illness and promote or damage health.
FDN-P – Functional Diagnostic Nutrition. Certification to utilize lab testing through Biohealth Diagnostics. FDN-P does not diagnose or treat specific diseases. Instead it explores the underlying causes of health challenges. Because symptoms are the last thing to be revealed in a disease process, usually function has been lost for some time. Symptoms are physical manifestations of a problem far deeper than most doctors are willing to look for. Like the tip of an iceberg, symptoms are a signal that there is dysfunction lying beneath the surface. When treatment is pills or surgeries to eradicate symptoms, the root cause is never discovered and dealt with. Health concerns can be managed and resolved with functional lab testing and integrative approaches to treatment.
NBCCT – Nationally Board Certified Colon Therapist through I-ACT (International Association for Colon Therapy). Colon Therapy is a wonderful adjunct to any health improvement plan, and is an excellent therapy for those in chronic states of ill health.
