My Approach




I practice a holistic approach to health and wellness,
which means that I look at how all areas of your life are connected. Does stress at your job or in your relationship cause you to overeat? Does lack of sleep or low energy prevent you from exercising? As we work together, we will look at how all parts of your life affect your health as a whole.

My work is that of a Nutritionist, Healer and Life Coach combined. My approach is not to dwell on calories, carbs, fats, and proteins. It is not to create lists of restrictions or good and bad foods. Instead, I work with my clients to create a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and rewarding. You will develop a deeper understanding of the food and lifestyle choices that work best for you and implement lasting changes that will improve your overall health and happiness.

My goal is to give you the tools to reclaim your health and happiness and make all the necessary changes to balance your life: body, mind and spirit. I look forward to supporting and guiding you towards a vibrant and harmonious life!

Together we’ll work to reach your health goals in areas such as achieving optimal weight, reducing food cravings, increasing sleep, and maximizing energy. As we work together, you’ll develop a deeper understanding of the food and lifestyle choices that work best for you and implement lasting changes that will improve your energy, balance, happiness and health.

As a coach, I put the power back in YOUR hands so you can heal yourself. 






"Alexandra is amazing! She and I worked my life in balance in a healthy and happy way with exercise, family and work. I already had lots of great elements in my life but getting suggestions and tips to help myself and family be healthy and balanced was so helpful! One year later I am writing this to say that everything she taught me I still am using in my daily life. Her information and tips on healthy living have greatly improved my day to day well being. And besides all that I enjoyed the time we spent each session! Totally worth it!"

“When I'm searching for a good health care practitioner I look for a person who lives it and understands it. Going through her program I learned that nutrition isn't simply what we eat, but it's how we live and how well our relationships are going. Alexandra is keen to different aspects of life that contribute to a person's state of health or ill health. It's about taking a look at life from a holistic perspective. She uses a chart so you can easily identify your strong points and weak points. She gives advice on how to balance them. For me it was sleep more, eat more veggies and fruits, and exercise. She's able to put it all into a perspective that makes sense. Not only in the individual areas of life but towards living out your long term goals and life purpose. Going through her program will help you define, focus, and support what you really want out of life and how to get there in good health to enjoy it. 
Don't hesitate to give her a call, set up a consultation and get moving forward.”

Integrative Nutrition® Plate

The Integrative Nutrition Plate emphasizes the importance of local and organic produce, whole grains, high-quality proteins, plant-based fats, and water. It shows you how a plate should appear at mealtime and emphasizes the importance of proportions and portion size. To complete the picture, the plate is surrounded with lifestyle factors that create optimal health: relationship, career, physical activity and spirituality. I’ll introduce you to some of the healthiest foods on the planet and teach you how to find what’s healthiest for your unique body!



Primary Food™

It’s easy to overlook all of the things that contribute to our sense of nourishment and fulfillment. It’s not just the food we eat that affects our health, but all of the other factors present in our daily lives. Healthy relationships, a fulfilling career, regular physical activity, and a spiritual awareness are essential forms of nourishment. When these “primary foods” are balanced, what you eat becomes secondary. I will support you in achieving all of your goals, from eating the right foods for your body to living an inspired, fulfilling life.


Bio-Individuality™

The concept of bio-individuality is the idea that each of us has unique food and lifestyle needs. One person’s food is another person’s poison, and that’s why fad diets tend to fail in the long run. Working on the principle of bio-individuality, I’ll support you to make positive changes that are based on your unique needs, lifestyle, preferences, and ancestral background.


Crowding Out

Many nutrition experts give their clients a list of foods to avoid and foods to eat, which explains why so many people are turned off by nutrition. My approach is different – by eating and drinking foods that are good for you, you will naturally have less room and desire for unhealthy foods. Simply put, you will “crowd out” the unhealthy food in your diet. This takes a little practice to make happen, but I will support you all the way.

 


Deconstructing Cravings

Cravings play a critical role in understanding what your body needs and shouldn’t be ignored. When you learn how to deconstruct your cravings and understand what they’re really telling you, you will be able to reclaim a sense of balance and harmony.
