As a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, I believe that health is built on certain biochemical foundations / digestion, blood sugar balance, mineral balance, fatty acid balance, and hydration / which are individual to each person. Weaknesses in these foundations can lead to various health problems. In order to find optimal health we have to identify if there is an imbalance in any of these foundations. With Jami, I chose to have her complete the Online Nutritional Assessment Questionnaire in order to create a customized nutritional program. The answers she provided help me identify how to improve her health. Readers can complete the same Online Nutritional Assessment at therightplan.com. Based on her answers this week she will be learning a variety of recipes for leafy greens.

I am happy to say that the changes that I have made are not only affecting me, but also my family in a positive way! [Read More]
