Health Philosophy

Health Philosophy

We have the ability to heal ourselves of many physical maladies. Food is a powerful and effective way to strengthen the immune system, allowing our body’s internal wisdom and homeostasis to take over. In diabetes studies, blood sugar levels dropped with just 2 weeks on a low-glycemic diet!

I believe in the power of food as medicine!

I believe health is comprised of at least 75% what we eat, and no amount of exercise can make up for putting nutrient-poor foods into our bodies

“You can’t exercise off a poor diet!” – Marcie

I believe that refined carbohydrates and sugar are THE primary factors in obesity, diabetes, emotional PMS, arthritis, anxiety and depression, lack of energy/chronic fatigue, systemic and joint inflammation, metabolic syndrome, brain fog, and heart disease. What else could be causing this health epidemic? I subscribe to a modified Paleo diet, which follows the evolutionary model of meats, fish, greens, nuts, beans, vegetables and fruits. The evidence overwhelmingly shows that sugars and carbohydrates in grain form – especially the highly-processed varieties found in prepared items and most restaurants – are simply not good energy sources for sustainable or vibrant human health.

Yet I also believe in being flexible (by day, by season, by time of life), and listening to your body.

I believe in bioindividuality: everyone is different and should honor those differences. There is no one size fits all, and health shouldn’t be approached that way. I believe in customizing each person’s health plan. I believe in placing an importance on enjoying life – not being so strict all the time that you obsess about it or can’t relax. In fact, all healing happens in the relaxation response (not the stress/fight or flight response).

Complete health includes more than nutrition

I believe in the importance of keeping stress levels low through regular exercise, connecting with your higher power (God/the Universe, etc), meditation, alone time, getting plenty of sleep (going to bed early), laughing, letting go of limiting thoughts, forgiveness, fun hobbies and creative outlets, and active appreciation: focusing on the joy and beauty that is all around us.

I believe in choosing your beliefs and your responses to stimuli and circumstances…rather than letting old/limited/unconscious beliefs dictate your inner peace, well-being and joy. 

Happiness is an inside job! One that we are honored to get to cultivate.
