A Functional Approach to Wellness


My Approach




Nancy Knudson practices a wholistic approach to health and wellness, which means that she look at how all areas of your life are connected. Does stress at your job or in your relationship cause you to overeat? Does lack of sleep or low energy prevent you from exercising? As You and Nancy work together, You and she will look at how all parts of your life affect your health as a whole.

Nancy's approach is not to dwell on calories, carbs, fats, and proteins. It is not to create lists of restrictions or good and bad foods. Instead Nancy works with clients to create a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and rewarding.  

As a member of the Institute for Functional Medicine she has access to critical tools for helping people on their journey and she continues to learn from the top functional medical doctors such as Dr. Mark Hyman, Dr. Jill Carnahan, Dr. Amy Meyers and so many others.  She has completed her Certification with Dr. Josh Axe in Essential Oil Coaching.  This is a great addition to her training after having used essential oils for more than 20 years for personal healing.  She has her own line of hand crafted essential oils for topical use that she offers for her clients for aid in improving digestion, balancing hormones, enhancing brain health and more.

Working together with Nancy you will reach your health goals in areas such as achieving optimal weight, reducing food cravings, increasing sleep, and maximizing energy. You’ll develop a deeper understanding of the food and lifestyle choices that work best for you and implement lasting changes that will improve your energy, balance and health.



Integrative Nutrition® Plate

The Integrative Nutrition Plate emphasizes the importance of local and organic produce, whole grains, high-quality proteins, plant-based fats, and water. It shows you how a plate should appear at mealtime and emphasizes the importance of proportions and portion size. To complete the picture, the plate is surrounded with lifestyle factors that create optimal health: relationship, career, physical activity and spirituality. Nancy will introduce you to some of the healthiest foods on the planet and teach you how to find what’s healthiest for your unique body!

Primary Food™

It’s easy to overlook all of the things that contribute to our sense of nourishment and fulfillment. It’s not just the food we eat that affects our health, but all of the other factors present in our daily lives. Healthy relationships, a fulfilling career, regular physical activity, and a spiritual awareness are essential forms of nourishment. When these “primary foods” are balanced, what you eat becomes secondary. I will support you in achieving all of your goals, from eating the right foods for your body to living an inspired, fulfilling life.


Bio-Individuality™

The concept of bio-individuality is the idea that each of us has unique food and lifestyle needs. One person’s food is another person’s poison, and that’s why fad diets tend to fail in the long run. Working on the principle of bio-individuality, Nancy Knudson will support you to make positive changes that are based on your unique needs, lifestyle, preferences, and background.

Crowding Out

Many nutrition experts give their clients a list of foods to avoid and foods to eat, which explains why so many people are turned off by nutrition. Nancy Knudson's approach is different – by eating and drinking foods that are good for you, you will naturally have less room and desire for unhealthy foods. Simply put, you will “crowd out” the unhealthy food in your diet. This takes a little practice to make happen, but she will support you all the way.

 

Deconstructing Cravings

Cravings play a critical role in understanding what your body needs and shouldn’t be ignored. When you learn how to deconstruct your cravings and understand what they’re really telling you, you will be able to reclaim a sense of balance and harmony.
