Through our approach, we guide you through five key steps:
Nutrition Your nutritional needs are unique to you alone. Your food, your genetics, your environment, and your lifestyle all interact to affect how you feel. We evaluate those interactions and how they can influence your long-term health. We work with you to understand your individual metabolic needs and develop a personalized nutritional program that you can follow easily. Nutrient deficiencies are corrected and food plans are designed to meet your personal needs.
Hormonal Balance Hormone imbalances can be the underlying cause of weight gain, menstrual irregularity, menopause problems, erectile dysfunction, low libido, depression, osteoporosis, muscle loss and fatigue. Pacific Pearl practitioners use state-of-the-art testing to determine imbalances and restore you to hormonal harmony.
Physical Activity Staying physical active is critically important to heart and brain health. Our goal is to create a physical activity program that is safe and meets your personal needs. We believe that flexibility, aerobic exercise and strength training are key components to optimal health.
Sleep Restorative sleep is also critical to heart and brain health. Sleep disturbance is linked to coronary artery disease, weight gain, diabetes, high blood pressure and memory loss. There are many causes of sleep disturbance including, hormones, anxiety and sleep apnea. Once we know the cause of your sleep disturbance we can guide you on the path to sleep restoration.
Know Your Genes: Personalize Your Lifestyle Genes influence your nutrient and vitamin needs, medication metabolism, fat storage, and risk of chronic diseases. Knowing your genetics empowers you to personalize your lifestyle choices and prevent health challenges before they occur.
Transforming Stress Stress is linked to all major health challenges. Weight gain, diabetes, high blood pressure, headaches, irritable bowel syndrome are just a few of the health challenges linked to stress. Our goal is to inspire you to find a path to inner peace. This path varies for each individual and may include nature, prayer, meditation, yoga, Tai Chi, social connection or simple breathing exercises. Your path to inner peace is as unique as you.
Connection: To People, Planet and Your Purpose In Life Find more joy, laughter and love in your life through connection. Healthy relationships, social support, optimism, spirituality and meaningful purpose in life are strongly associated with health and well-being.
