“Karmic Health has helped me tremendously with my diet and recovery due to a gluten, dairy, and soy allergy. I came to Sandi with my body in its worse possible condition it has ever been in. My body finally got to its breaking point. I was rundown, lethargic, bloated, and suffering from chronic diarrhea. I needed help, and I needed it quick. I contacted Sandi. I am on the road to recovery and I feel better every day. I know that my recovery will take some time to heal, but I also know that I have Sandi and her experience, guidance and knowledge to help me get my body back to its optimal health. Mahalo, Sandi and Karmic Health!!!!
Introduction to Nutrition Counseling
Two Hour Telephone Session or Office Visit in North County San Diego
An intake form will be required and gone through with you so we have a good assessment and can help you with your wellness goals. We will address any health concerns and find the underlying cause. My specialty is GI Wellness, Gluten Free/Food Intolerance and weight loss. I believe in functional nutrition and a holistic approach to healing.
Why Focus on Nutrition?
Did you know 80% of our immune system is in our gut? That’s why it’s so important to consistently eat foods that build and support our immune system. It’s all about inflammation!
There is also a need to understand and respect nutrition and not be afraid of the word “diet.” Diet simply means “assembly of food.” Think of your “diet” as your personal lifestyle, not a sentence to lose weight. That will happen on its own when you make positive changes in your diet.
Approach to Healing
General healthcare tends to consist of limited visits with your doctor. In most cases ten minutes, and usually after you have been living with a “symptom” for a long period of time. It’s important to be “pro-active” with your health before you feel the “symptoms” because usually when you get to that point you already have some damage or disease.
Although I had been commited to health and fitness for over 20 years, I realized I was missing a key element. I didn’t know enough about food allergies and nutrition. I never believed food could have such a critical impact on our health!
With an evaluation and a few simple tests, I was able to find the underlying cause of my symptoms. I am allergic to dairy and have a severe intolerance to gluten. By changing my “diet” and adding essential supplements I was able to eliminate prescriptions all together for migraines, arthritis, allergies, asthma, and IBS. In addition, and amazement of the doctors, my Sjogrens is under control.
It’s not an easy path by all means, and is an ongoing commitment to yourself, but I can tell you with confidence, it is well worth the effort!
