“Health is a state of complete harmony of the body, mind and spirit.
When one is free from physical disabilities and mental distractions,
the gates of the soul open.”
– B.K.S. Iyengar
There are a variety of vitamins, minerals, and nutritional supplements that I will suggest clients may want to try based upon symptoms and lab results.
Vitamin D3 can help with energy, immune function promotes gut repair, as well as many other health benefits.
Vitamins A, E and C: These are some of the important antioxidant vitamins that our bodies need to repair oxidative stress from the immune system fighting infection and/or from normal metabolic processes. Lifestyle and environmental factors influence the amount of these vitamins the body requires. Working with our health coach will help to determine when these supplements may be helpful for you.
B Vitamins are critical to many biochemical reactions. They range from production of important mood-stabilizing compounds like serotonin and dopamine, to detoxification reactions in the liver. Symptoms clients are experiencing will help to determine which B vitamins they may be lacking.
Clients may need to adjust dosages to find the one that is appropriate for them. Our health coach, Renee, relies on years of experience, client feedback, and extensive knowledge of how to best bring the body back into the rest and repair state.
Supplementation is intended to bridge the nutritional gap so that we maintain the proper balance of nutrients from food and supplementation.
Omega 3 fatty acids- These types of fats, especially EPA and DHA, are very important in brain function and help improve gut health as well. They are also important in turning off the pro-inflammatory state of the body and induce rest and repair. Dosages are unique to each client and can be tailored based on lab results. Finding a high-quality source of these nutrients is critical. I work with reputable companies whose brands I trust and offer those products to clients.
If you would like to hear my recommendations:
Every time you eat is an opportunity to nourish your body.

Not all supplements are the same. Some forms, especially when it comes to minerals, are more readily available to the body than others. Our health coach, Renee, relies on her biochemistry knowledge base and her past client experience to help determine specific minerals (including zinc, magnesium, calcium, and others) and dosages for each client. She recommends only companies who use the latest research in their formulations and who avoid harmful fillers in their products.
There are also very valuable herbal and nutritional supplements that aid in gut healing such as slippery elm, marshmallow root, aloe and L-glutamine. Using supplements such as these can help soothe an irritated intestinal lining to reduce inflammation and promote repair.
