what i offer
These virtual cleanses have the benefit of group accountability and support, recorded classes, cleanse kits delivered right to your door, and of course, access to me!
whether you are anywhere in the world, and wanting some customized nutrition help, or you are in Edmonton and want some reflexology or reiki, I am pretty excited to help.
From time to time, I offer other lifestyle and health courses online. Topics vary, but currently I have a Will Power and Self Control class on offer.
Sometimes, you just need a little taste before you are willing to commit to working with someone. I can totally appreciate that. Why not check out some of the free stuff I have on offer first?
Who I am
I have a bit of a unique approach to health and nutrition. I believe that it is incredibly individual - that's why what worked for your friend doesn't work for you.
I like to help my clients make decisions about their health based on what their body likes, not what an expert tells them their body should like. That doesn't mean I leave it all up to you. I provide guidance and education to help you make the best decisions possible.
Oh right. I am supposed to tell you about myself. Well...my name is Kristi. I have been working in the complementary health field for almost 15 years. I started out with a Criminology degree, working with children involved in prostitution, young offenders, and adult offenders. After years working in that field, I went back to school for Holistic Health. I ran a Holistic Health Center for over 9 years, but now, most of the work I do is online.
Mostly, I like to teach. I like learning, and I like passing that learning along to others.
I like to show you your own body. Not in a creepy way; I like to help you understand what your body likes and doesn't like.
I will admit - this is definitely not my stongest skill. But I love helping you create and stick to habits that serve you.
I am walking the talk right along with you. I do most of the cleanses with you, and I very much take my own advice.
Some stuff i have said
If any of you are trying to lose weight, just a tip: visceral fat, the fat around your organs that is more associated with health problems, is the first to go, so it can take a while for fat loss to show up in the mirror. Keep going. Measure, don’t weigh. Focus on how you Read more about Weight loss going too slow?[…]
More than anything, I want you to get this: Your health is not made on your best days, nor your worst. Create daily habits, but judge your progress by looking at your week and your month – aim for 80% “supportive of health goals” actions, and then don’t feel guilty when 20% is spent on Read more about Health is a long game[…]
When I discuss hunger with clients, I find people fall into two camps, and typically vacillate between them: 1) refusing to “give in” to hunger, as a form of control 2) avoiding hunger, and seeing it as a signal of a problem to be solved. And typically ALSO seeing hunger as a bad thing, as Read more about Thoughts on Hunger[…]
Our skin has the ability to make vitamin d from the sun. You know who else has this same ability? Mushrooms! Leave your mushrooms, even your plain buttons from the store, in sunlight or in a sunny window for a few hours, and you’ve got yourself a natural vitamin D supplement!
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the connection between food and emotions. Not just the obvious connection, in that we eat when we feel emotions, or TO feel emotions (or to AVOID feeling emotions), and we connect food with the way we feel, in helpful and unhelpful ways. This is obviously true and important, Read more about Emotions and Food[…]
Has anyone here ever had the experience of believing you were unattractive, then, after a few years, looking back and thinking “wow. How did I not see how hot I was back then?” Is that everyone’s hand I see raised? (Just kidding – I can’t see any of you!) So, here’s the thing: could you Read more about Maybe you look great…today?[…]
