My name is Gabrielle, and I am a Certified Nutritional Practitioner. I completed my studies at the Institute of Holistic Nutrition in Toronto, ON, and I am now based out of Calgary AB.
I decided to study nutrition after I noticed a glaring gap in our conventional medical systems, doctors were always so quick to dismiss me with a prescription without ever really taking the time to find out what was really going on.
For years I struggled with my own health issues, I was put on the birth control pill to regulate my cycle, and was prescribed Prozac to deal with symptoms of PMDD (think PMS on steroids). I refused to believe that that's all there was, and decided to take things into my own hands. It took years to repair what was done to me, but I am happy to report that all is well now, I feel balanced, in tune with my own body, and I feel healthier than I ever have.
My goal is to share with all of you the long-term benefits holistic nutrition can have on your health. I want to show you that your body is smart, and is fully capable of repairing itself.
