Nutrition

As we navigate the landscape of our lives, we share with every other human being the innate desire for health and happiness. Because the food we eat is so altered from what we are designed to utilize, our bodies are underfed and overburdened. Add in the conflicting opinions of the plethora of experts, and it is often frustrating and confusing trying to understand what is a healthy lifestyle.

I began studying Nutrition to improve my own health and the health of my family. This naturally extended into my Chiropractic practice, and then grew into a productive Nutritional Practice.

I believe that how we live affects not just our longevity, but also the quality of our lives. Our health is a direct reflection of what we eat, how we live and what we think about. The reality is that changing your lifestyle not only makes you feel and look better, but it will also create more joy in the journey.

Through simple changes in lifestyle, I have had the privilege of seeing people transformed. These changes can happen fast or slow depending on your preferences, but long-term success is fueled by positive change. In other words, you must want it, and to want it, it must be enjoyable. Positive change cannot occur through constant deprivation, but rather it must be pursued with a desire to live healthy. These are the long-term goals, but in the short-term changing your habits is not easy. Some dues must be paid initially, but the payoff is immeasurable.

My practice focuses on working with everyone as an individual, in terms of starting point and genetic potential. The goal is to know what your needs are and how to plan lifestyle changes that work to your genetic advantage. Holistic care encompasses using the entire body to get each person well, not just paying attention to where things hurt.

I offer a comprehensive Nutritional exam that includes a detailed history. When appropriate I offer state of the art Nutritional testing.

To address weight loss and toxic load, I offer supervised detox programs. The detox promotes health and weight loss, while also teaching you healthy eating habits. Each program is tailor made with your needs and goals in mind. You can watch my Detox video on the homepage.

To expedite the healing process, I often recommend: food based Supplements, Homeopathic Remedies, Herbs, Tinctures, as well as Topical and Essential Oils.

Nutritional deficiency and chronic degenerative changes have become common in this modern world. Through dietary, lifestyle and nutritional support, our goal is to empower you to navigate today’s landscape.

The great news is that improving your lifestyle will improve every aspect of your health!
No pill on earth can boast such a claim.

Many insurance companies cover these tests

We offer the following forms of Nutritional Testing:

Food Sensitivity - We offer a variety of tests from 4 to 400 different foods. Environmental chemicals and food additives can be tested as well. Several tests provide personalized nutritional recommendations.

Detoxification is a valuable tool I use to improve health and lose weight. Great health starts with healthy digestion. My program decreases inflammation and improves both food breakdown and nutrient uptake. People sign up for the detox initially to lose weight, but then are always amazed by the health improvements they experience. Looking and feeling better go hand in hand with living healthy.

What people are saying

Somehow, I’d gotten myself to the highest weight of my life. I blamed everything on peri-menopause and the moon and everything in between. I ate too much and enjoyed wine every day. It was part of my routine. I didn’t think I was eating badly as I ate organic, never microwaved food and ate only fresh and unpackaged things. But, I ate a lot of fruit (sugar), had a glass or two of wine every day with dinner (sugar) and most afternoons, had a treat from the vending machine at work (sugar). Sugar, caffeine and alcohol were my three main food groups.

My doctor threatened to put me on cholesterol drugs. “It’s just time.” she said. I wimped and whined and asked what I could do to avoid that and she said: “lose weight.” Oh, and since my BMI was so wickedly high, I qualified for bariatric surgery or medical weight loss management — where you drink liquids for 4 months. Yeah - no way I was going to do either of those things. Then, I saw Dr. Jamie on Facebook celebrating her new grandson and my jaw dropped - she looked fabulous! So, I set up an appointment - whatever she was doing, I wanted to get there, too.

Dr. Jamie gave me the scoop on the Standard Process, hooked me up with a basic kit and provided guidelines for what to expect. I knew in my heart it was the right thing! I bought a Vitamix and after complaining about the high cost of it, realized that just giving up wine alone has paid for it in a few months.

Although the detox program was 21 days, I never went back to adding back in the old things in my diet. I’m still caffeine-free and have had 3 glasses of wine in 3 months and that will likely drop altogether. I’ve had no sugar and kept my fruit to half or one piece a day. I highly recommend The Blender Girl book or app for amazing smoothie recipes. My sugar cravings are absolutely gone. My sweetheart loves peach pie and coffee. Easily, I can make his coffee when he wants it as well as baking him peach pie or any pie he wants. The only stipulation is that he can’t coerce me to have some and he has to eat the whole thing or share with his friends. I have zero feelings of deprivation. And this is big news from a hard core foodie. Now, my foods are largely raw and my tastes have changed entirely.

I feel fabulous and my coworkers are noticing. I’m lighter in both body and spirit and loving life. Can’t wait to go back to the doctor for a cholesterol check up! She’ll hardly recognize me.

Thank you, Dr. Jamie for helping me to live again. I’m tremendous grateful for your support and guidance.

Big hug,

Kae.

Weight Loss - All weight loss programs are individualized, but I encourage starting with my 21-day Purification program. This program teaches you how to eat, helps break bad food habits, removes toxins, and takes off weight. The average weight loss is about 10 pounds but results vary. The best part is you will feel and look wonderful which will encourage you to keep going.

Watch my video on the Purification (Detox) process, which is located on my homepage. The video not only talks about the process, but also reviews some of the less known reasons we tend to gain weight.

What people are saying

I was 100 pounds overweight with many health problems. I began the 21-day Purification with much resistance and doubt. I have always loved cooking, eating and let’s just say wine goes with everything. The problem was my health was deteriorating and I knew it deep down inside.

So, I took the first step and although it was hard the first week of the Purification, I have never looked back. By day five of the program I was beginning to have more energy and could think clearly again. By the end of the program I had lost my first twenty-two pounds and was on my way.

It is 5 years since then and I no longer have a foot ulcer, or take blood pressure medications. I have lost 100 pounds and enjoy my life in ways I never imagined.

Yes, I still cook and enjoy my food, but I use wonderful, healthy, tasty ingredients not the fake flavors of processed foods. I gave up coffee because I prefer how much energy I have without it. I did not realize how drinking coffee depleted my energy overall.

I recommend taking the plunge if you’re ready, you will lose weight and improve your health and quality of life. I also have had a positive effect on those around me.

I am grateful to enjoy a wonderful Grandson, I now have a good chance of watching grow up.

Mike
