Experience the Benefits of Working with an Integrative Nutritionist
At The Body Positive Works, we believe nutrition should be health-centered and weight neutral. That’s why we take an integrative approach that fosters Self-Love, Self-Care, and Self- Acceptance. Our food protocols concentrate on promoting overall well-being, rather than trying to achieve a certain weight or culturally defined standard of beauty. Bioindividuality is respected in defining the nourishment needed by you at this particular season of your life.
Nutrition Services that Empower You with Practical Solutions
We understand that achieving and maintaining personal wellness is a journey, not a destination. And that one size does not fit all. BIB offers both individualized mind-body nutrition counseling as well as small group programs and workshops to give you compassionate support, helping you learn to take care of your whole self and guiding you through the self-discovery process that brings about real and lasting change.
No Judgement. No Food Shame.
At The Body Positive Works, we seek to listen with our hearts as well as our heads to your unique story with curiosity, not judgement. Your symptoms, whether physical and/or behavioral, are simply messengers for underlying imbalances. If you need to navigate a particular food protocol to support your health physically, we offer nutritional expertise in a wide variety of food protocols such as Autoimmune (AIP), Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD), Candida, Ketogenic, Gluten-Free, and Paleo. Equally important, we will also help you identify and address the mind and heart issues behind your relationship with food in order to cope with emotional eating, overeating, binging, and/or food restricting.
