Welcome to Nourish Your Shine!

You might be wondering what exactly a Holistic Nutritionist does and how I might be able to help you on yourhippocrates path to health. A Registered Holistic Nutritionist or R.H.N. educates individuals about the health benefits of natural nutrition. Holistic nutrition is a combination of modern science and time-tested wisdom based on the philosophy that each person has unique nutritional requirements. I typically evaluate my client’s nutritional needs by identifying symptoms that indicate health imbalances. I then provide individualized health plans, which include nutrient-dense whole foods, lifestyle recommendations, natural source herbs and/or supplements in order to help bring my client’s health back to a state of equilibrium.

My Story

IMG 2111Several years ago, I was just like so many of you. I didn’t really think of health in relation to food. I grew up eating sugary fruit flavoured cereal and loved ketchup potato chips and ice cream. Sure, I knew that fruits and vegetables were good for you and if you ate too much junk food you’d gain weight, but I really didn’t know that the immune system was based in your lymphatic system, and that eating poorly could create dis-ease. What do you mean the packaged foods at the grocery store have harmful chemicals in them that can accumulate in my organs and cause dysfunction? The government wouldn't allow companies to sell products that harm our health would they?

After a series of devastating events in my life I soon discovered the truth. Out of the blue one night, I woke up with crazy heart palpitations and a very rapid heart rate, so my husband called an ambulance. After being checked out at the hospital, I was advised that they couldn’t determine the cause and I should follow up with my family doctor. After some testing from the family doctor, I was sent to a Rheumatologist because my blood showed some markers for an auto-immune condition. I also went to see a Cardiologist because my heart rate turned into atrial fibrillation. I’d just like to say that prior to this, I was not the type who went to the doctor often because I was a busy mom, and business owner.

I was sent to specialist after specialist only for them to tell me it wasn’t this, or that, but not actually give me any help for what was wrong with me. I kept a list of all of my symptoms as things got worse because I felt like the doctors didn’t believe me or just didn’t care. I was exhausted all of the time and would have crazy outbursts of random symptoms like vertigo or unexplained body or nerve pain. My anxiety level shot through the roof and I was terrified that I was going to have a heart attack and die. 

Now I know “they say” you shouldn’t Google your symptoms (believe me, it said I had everything under the sun), but I’m glad I did because I wanted to find out how I could heal myself. The specialists were not being helpful, in fact, after being ill for about seven months and finally starting to improve, I went to see a Neurologist and she asked about my symptoms, I told her my big, long, story and she said, “are things getting better”? I said “yes, a bit” so she said “well then it’s not neurological because those issues don’t get better”. And that was the end of my round of specialists. I decided from then on I was going to have to figure things out on my own. I changed my diet to support my immune, nervous, and adrenal systems and things continued to improve. 

During this time my husband’s father had been going through a tough battle with cancer and sadly lost his fight. A couple of months later, my mother went to the hospital with stomach pain and a week later she was diagnosed with stomach cancer. After all of my Googling and learning information about how diet can influence health, I was determined to help my mom. My sister said that mom wasn’t eating so I made her a soup packed with super foods and brought it to the hospital. I hugged my mom and told her we’d get through this and she’d be fine. She sipped away at the soup and bragged to the nurse that I had made her soup that could cure cancer and we were going to go into business together and help so many people. Three days later, my mom passed away with all of her loved ones around her. Although this is a painful memory to share, it is vital for me to explain how I began my journey into natural nutrition.
