Is chronic disease inevitable?
1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime and 1 in 8 with breast cancer. Second only to only lung cancer in death rates for cancer, breast cancer is a lifestyle disease. Only about 10 percent of breast cancers have genetic markers (BRCA gene mutations), and even these cancers are largely preventable with diet and lifestyle changes.
Heart disease—including heart attack, arrhythmia, stroke, and heart failure—is the leading cause of death for women. 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with heart disease during their lifetime, and two-thirds of these had no symptoms. Autoimmune disease, typically only diagnosed in the later stages of disease when the body starts breaking down, is one of the top 10 leading causes of death for women under 64. Common autoimmune diseases, which are much more prevalent in women than in men, include Hashimoto's thyroiditis, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, alopecia, and Graves' disease, among many others.
One or more of these risk factors form the root of all chronic diseases:
→ Nutrient deficiencies
→ Chronic stress
→ Sleep deprivation
→ Bacterial overgrowth
→ Hormone imbalance
I can help you identify and reduce your risk factors.
My goal is to build a bridge between your current health and the future you see for yourself. Perhaps you've tried diets and cleanses before with little success. Together we will discover from a functional nutrition perspective what's going on in your body to drive your particular symptoms and conditions. Then we will form a step-wise nutrition and lifestyle plan to bring your body back into balance.
