My Approach

Unlike many nutritionists, I don’t dwell on calories, carbs, fats, and proteins, and I don’t create lists of good and bad foods. Instead, I work with my clients to create a “bio-individualized” plan that’s flexible, rewarding, and easy to follow. I will also guide you toward gradual, lifelong changes that enable you to live a healthy, fulfilling life — free from counterproductive restrictions and denial-based diets.

I’m a strong believer in bio-individuality, the concept that each person has unique food and lifestyle needs. One-size-fits-all diets just aren’t useful, or successful. One person’s fuel is another person’s poison, which is why fad diets tend to fail in the long run. I’ll assess your lifestyle, preferences, and ancestral background to create a personalized, holistic approach just for you — a lifestyle plan that works, in the short term and throughout the rest of your life.

Together, we’ll work toward achieving four core outcomes: reaching optimal weight, reducing food cravings, increasing sleep, and maximizing energy. 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, and health.

Along the way, you’re also likely to feel positive changes in your life relating to stress, sex drive, self-esteem, and mindfulness.

It’s easy to overlook all of the things beyond food that contribute to our sense of nourishment and fulfillment. Healthy relationships, a fulfilling career, regular physical activity, and 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 these goals, from eating the right foods for your body to living an inspired, fulfilling life.

Marin Nutrition and Health concentrates and focuses on mind and body calibration, with an emphasis on healthy eating through non-processed foods containing utmost nutrients to help our clients' bodies expedite their healing process on a cellular level. By adhering to our company's program guidelines, our clients' bodies will experience a quick recovery from any harm in which their health has been compromised over the years. We provide clients with the most important health-learning tools, along with healing-base food shopping lists to get their bodies back on track and achieve optimal health improvements.

By extensive research, our company has designed a multi-faceted program that will bring quick results to maximize and heal each client's health condition.

There are multiple phases to the program, starting with a minimum of three key starting points:

  1. The preparation of the intestinal lining in order to microbalance clients' stomach flora -- which is the good and bad bacteria that we all need for healthy immune systems. In fact, 80% of your immune system is located within your digestive tract. That is why it is so important to maintain a healthy digestive system.
  2. Detoxification of the unhealthy elements that encompass our clients' intestinal cavity. We do this by detoxifying the body with foods close to Mother Nature.
  3. Maintain and balance the nutritional elements that the program provides to optimize our clients' present and future health.

In each of these phases, we will remove potentially harmful foods while recommending an intake of healthy nutritional alternatives as a vital means to help your body thrive daily on a cellular level.

This program focuses on improving many different conditions and ailments, such as

  • Weight loss
  • Diabetes
  • Digestive issues
  • Low energy
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • (Among many more health conditions.)

My Training

I have devoted years of study to physiology, food combining, and understanding human behavior (the “mind-body-spirit connection”). My education has equipped me with extensive knowledge of nutrition, health coaching, and preventive health.

I earned my bachelor of science and master’s degrees in holistic sports nutrition from the University of Natural Health. I also trained as a health counselor at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition’s cutting-edge Health Coach Training Program, where I studied more than a hundred dietary theories, lifestyle-management techniques, and innovative coaching methods with several of the world’s top health-and-wellness experts, including Andrew Weil and Deepak Chopra.
