Why A Holistic Approach?
"All disease begins in the gut"
I view health and healing from a natural, whole person perspective. Yes, it is all connected! As a functional nutritionist I understand the therapeutic value of real, nutrient dense food and also recognize the impact that environment, stress and mindset have on overall health.
I recognize there is no “one size fits all” approach to health and honor each clients bio-individuality. When working together you will receive a personalized plan that addresses YOUR overall health & wellness to help you achieve your goals. My goal when working together is to get to the root of the issue and support a healthy lifestyle by adding in healthy habits, not taking things away.
My main focus is on gut health, which is foundational to your overall health. You are not what you eat, you are what you digest!
"Lauren is informative, patient and does research to make sure to provide comprehensive holistic guidance in my food journey. My sessions with Lauren have really helped keep me accountable, she brings a wide range of strategies to make sure you're getting the best care, and her empathy for her clients can be felt in even the minute of details she provides.
