You might wonder how a holistic nutrition consult differs from a visit with a dietician. Holistic nutrition consults focus on root causes of chronic conditions and symptoms and incorporate food plans, stress management, exercise and proper sleep support, based on the bio-individual needs of each and every person. Holistic nutrition consults offer nutrition plans to help nourish the individual’s body vs a prescribed diet based solely on a specific chronic condition such as blood pressure, high cholesterol or diabetes.
Heather specializes in nutritional support for treatment and prevention of chronic diseases and illnesses such as: pre-diabetes, diabetes, high cholesterol, hypertension, GI issues including constipation, diarrhea, IBS, heartburn, gas and bloating; auto-immune conditions such as Crohns, Celiac, auto-immune thyroid(Graves and Hashimoto’s), and Rheumatoid Arthritis to name a few; chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, anxiety, depression, and hormone imbalance are also addressed. Holistic nutritional support incorporates a nutrient dense, whole food diet, adequate hydration and necessary supplementation of high quality professional grade supplements from companies such as Metagenics, Orthomolecular, Vital Nutrients, Pure Encapsulations, and other high quality professional supplement companies.
Heather is dedicated and compelled to provide exceptional personalized care through holistic nutrition consults. Her objective as a healthcare professional is to deliver outstanding care to each individual with proper education on how food interacts with their cells and turns on or suppresses chronic gene expressions. This type of holistic nutrition consult empowers the individual to make positive lifestyle changes such as diet, exercise, and stress management, putting their health in their own hands and encouraging them to move toward optimal health.
Heather addresses the foundations of health: Digestion, Blood Sugar Balance, Mineral Balance, Fatty Acid Balance, and Hydration, using a holistic approach, starting with proper digestion and working with the interactions of each body system. She recognizes that each person is an individual and that the impact of the external environment on the physiology varies from person to person.
In addition to holistic nutrition consults, Heather also offers Health Coaching, Personal Training, Grocery Store Tours, Pantry Makeovers, 12- Week Therapeutic lifestyle programs, detox and weight loss packages. Oubre Medical offers advanced testing to help identify and address underlying root causes.
