Some concepts that you will explore during your work together with Heather:


Bio-individuality™: The concept of bio-individuality is that each person has unique food and lifestyle needs. One person’s food is another person’s poison, and that’s why fad diets tend to fail in the long run. Working on the principle of bio-individuality, Heather supports you to make positive changes that are based on your unique needs, lifestyle, preferences, and ancestral background. She uses a personalized integrative approach to ensure that you will have great success!

Primary Food™: It’s easy to overlook all of the things that contribute to our sense of nourishment and fulfillment. It’s not just the food we eat, but all of the other factors present in our daily lives. Healthy relationships, a fulfilling career, regular physical activity and a spiritual awareness are essential forms of nourishment. When these “primary foods” are balanced, what you eat becomes secondary. Heather supports you in achieving all of your goals, from eating the right foods for your body to living an inspired, fulfilling life.

Integrative Nutrition™ Plate: The Integrative Nutrition Plate emphasizes the importance of local and organic produce, whole grains, high-quality proteins, plant-based fats, and water. It shows you how a plate should appear at mealtime and emphasizes the importance of proportions and portion size. To complete the picture, the plate is surrounded with lifestyle factors that create optimal health: relationship, career, physical activity and spirituality. Heather introduces you to some of the healthiest foods on the planet and teach you how to find what’s healthiest for your unique body! 


Foundational Health:   Foundational health refers to the most basic underpinning of health in the mind and body:  the neuro-musculo-skeletal structure, and its inter-connection with every other system in the body.  Heather explores with you the fascinating emerging science of epi-genetics, neuro-plasticity,  psycho-neuro-immunology, orthomolecular medicine, and how you can use discoveries in these fields to shed light on your own health and well-being.  Heather provides you with information on inflammation, detoxification, the microbiome, mindfulness, and more, and she can direct you to practitioners who offer measurable, predictable and reproducible testing methods, to help you achieve your health goals.
