Hey, I'm Emily!
And like you, I don’t want to live in a world without cheese.
I love playing outside, growing and eating good food, and drinking a bit of nice wine or a good, hoppy IPA. With a local cheeseboard, of course.
Holistic Nutrition and Herbal Medicine are my specialties.
I am a qualified Nutritionist & Medical Herbalist with a Bachelor of Natural Medicine, and I offer one-on-one health assessments and individualised treatments to help you get your health back on track.
I have just returned to Canada after spending nearly 12 years living in New Zealand, and have settled in beautiful Kelowna, BC. While I was in NZ I studied natural medicine at the South Pacific College of Natural Medicine.
I am a Professional Member of the Canadian Herbalist's Association of BC.
My approach to health is all about balance.
Nutrition and natural medicine are incredible tools, especially for chronic conditions. But I am also endlessly grateful for modern medicine and technology. So let's combine them, and get the best of both worlds!
How Can I Help You?
I hope that by now you have figured out that if you have health issues that you want natural solutions for, then I'm your woman.
If you want to book a full consultation, then you can book online.
I also have online meal plans available now!
Meal plans are a great way to get yourself into good habits.
Good nutrition (with space for cheese, of course) can improve a wide variety of conditions, often making other treatment unnecessary or at least short-lived!
I also insist that my meal plans are delicious and can pass any dinner party test.
(Don't believe me? Take these guys for a spin!)
Some of the most common health issues that I deal with include:
Digestive disorders - IBS, vague, undiagnosed, whatever - I can help
Problems losing weight - it may be as easy as a meal plan! (though we can investigate other causes)
Thyroid issues, especially low thyroid function. Even if your blood tests say you're "normal"
Adrenal/stress issues. Herbs, diet, and lifestyle changes can sure make a big impact here. Also, excess cortisol can be a cause of weight gain (especially around the middle)
Low immunity or chronic infections
Skin issues such as eczema or psoriasis
Hormonal imbalances - bad PMS, weird or irregular periods
If you are unsure if I can help you, please don't hesitate to get in touch and I will let you know what the best way forward is.
