Food As Medicine

Understanding how your body functions, how food supports these functions and how to balance daily meals to enhance your health is the focus of our nutritional healing practice.

“The body is your temple. Keep it pure and clean for the soul to reside in.”

-B.K.S. Iyengar

Diet is the primary indicator of health. Food supports life but it can also make us sick when we over indulge or eat the wrong foods.

The National Center for Disease Control estimates that one in four adults in the United States are overweight or clinically obese.  This epidemic in weight gain has greatly increased chronic diseases like hypertension, diabetes and certain cancers.

Our philosophy and practice of nutritional healing is to re-institute the wisdom of kitchen science that is based on eating whole foods- foods that are closest to their natural state when grown. We also practice using herbs and spices to balance taste and support not only proper digestion yet all of the organ systems of the body.
