Here you will find conversations on topics that matter; nutrition, stress, sleep, relationships, movement and my favourite topic, habits.
I once read in order to develop a habit, success is the secret sauce. I believe this to be true with many bad habits we want to drop and new habits we want to create. This can work with food as well, but it depends on the intensity of the signal sent to our brain...
The way I see it, and from what I gathered from my clients, our relationship with food can be broken down in two ways: healthy and unhealthy. Unhealthy often begins with a physiologically-based craving, which turns into an emotional craving. HEALTHY What defines a...

Today I wanted to share something about my services that I have not yet formally announced. You may have heard me mention the term functional medicine to you from time to time. Let me briefly tell you what it is and why I decided to become certified as a functional...
