About
  • I am licensed in British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario and provide routine services including healthy eating, weight management (loss or gain), improving high cholesterol, blood sugar and pressure, and markers of fatty liver disease. These services are available using a variety of dietary patterns, including low carb and keto.

    I help adults of all ages reduce the health risks associated with conditions that run in their family, and I frequently provide routine services to couples and  multiple members of the same family. While I assess each person's nutritional needs individually, Meal Plans are designed to complement each other — eliminating the need to prepare different meals.

    I provide digestive health services to individuals with food allergies, food sensitivities, as well as those newly diagnosed with celiac disease, Crohn’s disease, or various types of colitis.

    I offer customized support for women's health including prenatal and post partum nutrition, PCOS, as well as menopause management for 'women of a certain age' and provide a range of services related to men's health with nearly half of my clients being men. I have dedicated services for healthy adults who seek to stay that way as they age, including maintaining a healthy body weight and retaining muscle and bone mass. For those recently diagnosed with hypothyroidism (Hashimoto’s), including sub-clinical hypothyroidism, I offer a dedicated package to help address the weight gain and which provides nutrition education about specific foods and nutrients of importance, including supplementation.

    I also have several years experience designing therapeutic ketogenic diets as adjunct treatment for some physical health conditions, and more recently as adjunct therapy in mental health. While therapeutic ketogenic diets have similarities to keto diets used for weight loss and improved blood sugar, they are also very different. You can learn about this under Therapeutic Diets services, below.

    I also offer specialized services to support those with Mast Cell Activation Disorder/Syndrome and some types of Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (hEDS).

    I believe that there is no one-size-fits-all approach, but that Nutrition is BetterByDesign©.

     

    MULTICULTURAL MEAL PLANS
    I specialize in multicultural Meal Plans and have in-depth knowledge of the food and cultural practices from many regions of Asia and South Asia, North Africa, the Caribbean, Middle East and the Mediterranean.

     

    CATEGORIES OF SERVICES

    I offer three categories of services.

     

    I — ROUTINE SERVICES

    I currently offer four types of routine services.

    The Complete Assessment Package and Comprehensive Dietary Package are two packages for those seeking to eat healthier, as well as for weight management, improving blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar, and the markers of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. The difference between the two packages is that the Comprehensive Dietary Package provides an additional two 1/2-hour follow up visits at a cost savings from taking them on an hourly basis.

    The Healthy Aging Package is for healthy adults who seek to stay that way.

    I also offer two types of Hourly Services.

    • Complete Assessment Package
    • Comprehensive Dietary Package
    • Healthy Aging Package
    • Hourly Services

    I offer specialized packages for individuals struggling with the symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), which includes but is not limited to a low FODMAP diet.

    I provide support for individuals with food allergies, food sensitivities, as well as those newly diagnosed with Crohn’s disease, various types of colitis, and celiac disease.

    I currently offer the following four digestive health services;

    • Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) Package
    • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) Package
    • Celiac Disease Management Package
    • Food Sensitivity / Food Allergy Package

    III — THERAPEUTIC DIETS

    I currently offer two therapeutic diets for women’s health (PCOS and menopause management), along with therapeutic ketogenic diets for mental and physical health.

    For clients seeking highly specialized services not covered by existing packages, I offer the Customized Nutrition Package.

    I currently offer the following four packages;

    • Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
    • Menopause Management Package
    • Therapeutic Ketogenic Diets
    • Customized Nutrition Package

Interesting Facts

In March 2017, I was at a crossroads with respect to my own health. It was more like a crisis. I lost 55 pounds and 12 inches off my waist, and put my high blood pressure, and type 2 diabetes into remission. In August 2022, I was diagnosed with profound hypothyroidism and have since changed my lifestyle once again to best support my health. You could say that I understand weight loss and health recovery from both sides of the clinical desk.
