This package is intended for people who are new to recovery and are interested in a total mind and body reset. There will be a protocol created through my having a con- sultation with your therapist to support your individual recovery plan and needs. Nutri- tion is a critical part of recovery especially upfront where bio chemical imbalances are at their highest. Supporting these major deﬁciencies with amino acids are especially valuable as the building blocks to neurotransmitters and being closely tied to addic- tive behavior. Also, essential fatty acids are integrated to reduce the inﬂammatory load, boost brain function and mood, balance blood sugar, and give foundational sup- port for producing every hormone. The idea is to ﬂood the brain and body with nutri- ents giving the client a much higher chance of maintaining long term recovery.
After the initial Phase 1, Phase 2 speciﬁcally targets a deeper strategy for increasing immune, healing your inner microbiome and intestinal permeability.
It has been long believed that low mood, and nervousness are as a result of an imbalance of chemicals (particularly serotonin and norepinephrine) in your brain. There is increasing evi- dence, however, that depression is actually linked to a low-grade chronic inﬂammation in your body. The brain and blood stream are aﬀected by inﬂammation in your body. These symptoms and the gut brain connection are complex and so is the way our bodies interact with foods. The gut and brain have a steady ability to communicate via the nervous system, hormones, and the immune system.
It is imperative to understand the correlation between therapeutic whole food nutrition and the signiﬁcant impact it has to increase vitality. There are extremely damaging eﬀects on the gut microbiome creating vulnerability to emotional symptoms through eating reﬁned foods.
Includes a 60 minute meeting and continued partnership with additional support and ac- countability as well as learning about more advanced health topics. This will help you achieve a deeper understanding of how to increase your body’s strength’s and needs as a way to evolve into a higher level of health and wellbeing. This meeting will also be a follow up to make modiﬁcations to a previous protocol.
Exercise is one of the most successful treatment strategies for those with stress, low mood , and nervous energy, and ADHD. Strength training improves insulin sensitivity, improves cognitive function, lowers inﬂammation , boosts metabolism, will help you decrease body fat, maintain bone mass, and prevent age related muscle loss. Progressive resistance train- ing and HIIT is proven to reduce these symptoms, improve sleep by increasing blood ﬂow to the brain, releasing mood boosting chemicals like endorphins, norepinephrine and dopamine, increase production of neurotransmitters such as GABA through new neurons, as well as buﬀering the eﬀects of stress.
I will design a workout regimen to your level including progressive resistance, functional and plyometric /interval training using a guided basis for understanding form and technique, increased intensity and conditioning to assist you in your own training.
