Daikon Radish is an Asian vegetable.
It looks like a large white carrot but tastes similar to our standard
red radish. Very flavorful but a
little less hot. Daikon
is very healing – very good at breaking up congestion. It contains natural diuretics and digestive
enzymes and is effective against bacterial and fungal infections. It’s available in most health food
stores, Asian markets and in many large grocery stores.

The goals of this workshop will be
create easy transitional changes to your diet
give you more energy, clarity
assist you in losing weight (if you want to)
develop an easily maintainable exercise plan
work with stress management tools
Does your diet need a little (or a
lot) of “tweaking?”
Learn how to make healthier
choices that work best for you -- For
YOUR BODY and your BUSY LIFESTYLE. You’ll have more energy, focus and lose
some weight (if you’d like to) as well. There are many other factors in our lives
that affect the food we eat and visa versa.
As such, we’ll also work on some lifestyle issues -- things like
stress management, sleep (how to get to sleep, stay asleep or get
restful sleep) and exercise. This course will take place in four
workshops. You’ll leave each
workshop with a set of
recommendations (via a follow up email) to implement as well as various articles, recipes, food samples, audio
references and other healthy living tools.
The four sessions will be
held via teleconference from 6:30
– 8:30 PM ESTon the following dates: September
13 and 27, October 11 and 25 (note, all are Wednesdays)

Getting to Balance – A
We all can use more balance in our
life. Learn how to create balance
within your own life by looking at key areas – food, sleep,
relationships, relaxation, exercise and goal setting. We’ll discuss how all of these
areas are inter-related and therefore have direct cause and effect on one
another. This workshop will give you
insight into these various aspects and give you tools and suggestions to keep
them all “in the air”.

Initiate a Change
Are your health concerns
impeding you from living life fully? Do you want to change your relationship
with food from the inside out? Are you seeking deep seeded balance and
would eagerly welcome the opportunity to work with you on a personal
level. We can work together privately
to create a customized life-long plan for you AND create the steps to
incorporate those changes into your existing routines.
counseling services I help people create and maintain balance in their life
by using nutrition as a focus and a tool. To do this I look at the
entire lifestyle of an individual to achieve maximum health. This is
accomplished through education and private consultations where an
individualized program is developed for each client. These
consultations include evaluating the client’s current diet and overall
lifestyle and then making easily implemented, gradual changes.
Additionally, they receive outside information in the form of articles,
books, tapes and recipes. Also included are additional monthly forms of
education and participation -- activities like cooking coaching, health food
store shopping hints, light exercising functions and other
activities. My practice is telephone based, allowing for maximum
flexibility and ease.
