I confess that I have struggled with having a healthy relationship with food. In high school, I was always preoccupied with being skinny. This preoccupation grew into some eating habits and behaviors that were not good for my physical body. I would overeat, under eat, and overexercise to “undo” the damage I had done. I felt like a slave to food and to my body.
For about 10 years, I struggled intensely with sugar addiction, body image issues, unhealthy dieting, and exercise addiction. I say that I had “disordered eating.” It was not as severe as being diagnosed with an eating disorder, but it was definitely not normal and I was not taking care of myself well. God has rescued my soul and my body in many ways from a very unhealthy relationship with food and for that I am truly thankful.
In college, I decided to learn more about nutrition and how to feed my body in a healthy way and ever since, the LORD has chosen to use me in ways I could have never imagined! I am now a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and I use a Functional Nutrition perspective when working with people. I am passionate about helping people not just be free from disease, but to truly be healthy in all aspects of the word.
This includes taking care of our souls as well. It is here we see the foundation of our faith in God and our Lord Jesus Christ complete the picture of total health. As a Functional Dietitian, I work with people on an individual level considering all components of health including family history, lifestyle, genetics, lab work, symptoms, stress, spiritual health, and much more! I have a deep passion to help people to understand how food affects our bodies.
I hope to help you explore your issues, identify them, and resolve them. It is your choice if you want to look at your journey with Biblical concepts and faith. What a blessing to know that you are not alone!
