Heart disease hits close to my, well… heart. In my own circle of family and friends, many are living with heart disease; high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high triglycerides, etc. Several have been lost too soon. After all, heart disease is the #1 killer of American women. But here’s the kicker: in most cases, it’s completely preventable. That means that the things we do every day; what we eat, drink, smoke, and how we live our lives, are literally killing us. So that’s why I created the 1-Up Heart Program. Because I don’t want anyone else to lose a grandparent too soon to a preventable disease. I don’t want anyone else to spend years of their lives shackled to medications with no real plan for improvement. I don’t want anyone else to live their life in fear of a heart attack or stroke, not participating in the things they love, with the people they love, because they are too unwell. And I don’t want anyone else to go into open-heart surgery if simple lifestyle changes will do.
My philosophy is “Food First.” I’ll never sell you supplements, and I won’t recommend them unless they are truly needed. Nothing can replace actual food. We’re learning more about it every day! How different nutrients play together, how different fibers affect the gut, and how gut bacteria contribute to our health or disease. We can’t put into a supplement what we don’t know exists! So I’ll work with you to find the right foods to optimize your body for function and healing.
I’ve been practicing dietetics for about 14 years, and I’ve worked with hundreds of people to help them find health and freedom at all stages of their lives, despite the hurdles and temptations modern society throws at us everyday. I know that all of us can learn to makes better choices no matter our situation. I’m passionate about food and I love to eat! I love cooking healthy and delicious meals for my family. It’s fun for me to modify not-so-healthy recipes so they can support health, rather than destroy it. And of course, there’s always a little wiggle room for something special! Take a look over at my blog and subscribe for some great healthy recipes! As a thank you, I’ll send you a free report, “6 Things You Can Do Today To Lower Your Blood Pressure”!
