Don't Wait For Your Wake Up Call!

As an Integrative Health Practitioner I have come to realize that we simply haven't been taught how to optimize our health, and that the average person has habits that are negatively impacting their health, due to this lack of knowledge, through no fault of their own. Public health and our school system simply don't teach us enough about nutrition, sleep, stress, gut health or how interconnected our bodies are! Modern life has us more sleep deprived, stressed out and the sickest ever, and I believe it is time to bring this education to you, so that you CAN be empowered in your health and you can then make the right choices for you and your family. The choices you make today impact your future 1 year, 5 years, 10 years + from now. It is never too early to start looking after your health, as Health is your TRUE wealth....without it what do you have?


episode 37: E037: Sugar Portion / Distortion + Trick or Treating Tips!

Karie Cassell, Registered Dietician, and Life Coach dive into emotional eating, and the fact it takes more than just knowing you shouldn’t do something to change habits. We discuss the diet industry and whether the diet is a good word or a bad word, and what Karie has come to discover it really means. We also discuss portion distortion, particularly in relation to sugar, as it’s in everything and it’s so easy for us to get too much sugar in our diet. Again, sugar is not bad, our body needs it, but it’s all about getting the right amount and not too much. We also dive into some tips for surviving trick or treating and all the sugar that goes with that! Karie also digs into types of sugars and sugar alcohols. So much helpful information is packed into this one session as well as the fact Karie has a brand-new book out, called “the Domino Diet”. You can click below to buy it on Amazon.
