Ways to Work with Me

If you have made your way here, then you probably want to feel better and are considering seeking help to reach your health goals. I am not here to convince you that our Standard American Diet is killing us (but it is). If you agree with me here, than you're in the right place. What I am here to do is teach you how you can heal yourself by taking a holistic approach to your health: mind, body, spirit, and environment.

I offer four ways to work with me:

1. 5 R Gut Healing Program (you can download & access right now)

2. Private Individual Consulting

3. The Red Thread group program

4. Journey group program

How do you get to where you want to be?

Making it to your destination, a.k.a. your wellness goals, is a journey. And really, it's not a destination; wellness is about making choices everyday - it's the journey. There will be bumps, construction, detours and forks in the road where you’ll have to make some decisions. I am going to be honest with you here…there is no quick fix, no magic pill, nor a new fad diet that will put you on the fast  track to transformation. Long lasting change takes time, hard work, patience, a positive attitude, a vision of your end goal, and… support and guidance. That’s where I come in.

 

You get to where you want to be by taking small steps, one day at a time. Steps that feel right for you. My job as a holistic nutrition consultant is to provide a safe, confidential, judgement free space to guide and support you as you take the wheel to navigate your wellness journey.

5R Gut Healing Program
Original on Transparent.png

An amazing fact: 80% of your immune system is found in your gut!  We are learning so much about how the health of the gut determines the health of the individual. So when your gut is out of balance (dysbiosis) many symptoms can be seen, even ones that are not related to your gut.  The best place to begin is the gut. The Five R Gut Healing Program was developed to help pretty much anyone. This is just a partial list of issues that healing the gut can help with:

  • digestive issues (gas, bloating, GERD, acid reflux, constipation, diarrhea)

  • thyroid issues, Hashimoto's 

  • autoimmune diseases

  • food intolerances or sensitivities

  • skin issues, such as eczema, rashes, anal itching

  • low immunity (always getting sick)

  • low energy

  • mental fog, lack of mental clarity

  • ADHD

  • Anxiety, mood swings

  • food cravings

  • seasonal allergies

  • chronic infections (sinus, yeast, kidney/gall stones)

This program is based on the Five R's: 

  1. Rebalance...with healthy, sustainable life-style practices

  2. Remove...foods that may be causing inflammation in the intestinal tract

  3. Replace...with whole, nutrient dense, and healing foods

  4. Repopulate...the gut with good health promoting bacteria

  5. Repair...with healing foods and supplements

I offer this as a self-paced program that you can access right now as a .pdf download! It includes:

the 5 R Gut Healing Program guide, Reintroduction to Foods booklet, TWO cookbooks, 1 week meal plan, and BONUSES!  All for only $97 (valued at over $400)!

People who have followed this program have seen a huge different in their gut health: feeling less bloated and no more stomach pain. 

The 5 R Gut Healing Program has 5 steps: Rebalance, Remove, Replace, Repopulate, and Repair. It is used when the body needs to reset, rebalance, and heal the gut. It is self-paced and done over a period of 5-12 weeks, depending upon the individual. 

It is a step by step program that walks you through this tried and true protocol to help you heal your gut. You will remove foods that could be causing you distress and replace them with health giving foods. It also lists supplements and herbs that can be used to help the healing process (remember you have access to my professional-grade Fullscript supplement dispensary with a 10% discount).

It includes the Five R Gut Healing guide book, TWO cookbooks, and a one-week meal plan to help with the planning. At the end of the program you will use the Reintroducing Foods & Empowered Eater booklet (included) which guides you through what to do after the program.

And there are BONUSES!  You will also receive:

  • Immune Supporting Plate handout that shows you what foods to put on your plate for optimal health and healing.

  • Balancing Blood Sugar handout explains all the important information you need to know how foods effect your blood sugar and tips to keep cravings at bay.

  • Mindful/Intuitive Eater booklet that gives you practical tips on how to become more in touch with your hunger cues so you can become a mindful/intuitive eater.

Private Individual Consulting 

I work with people who
have realized that their diet and lifestyle are making them sick and want to make changes.
 

I take the same approach no matter what you may be suffering from - we start with healing your gut! ALL dis-ease comes back to the health of a person's gut. 

We typically work together for a period of 6 to 9 months, or longer. I offer:

  • functional labs tests

    • Gut health: GI-MAP Stool tests, 1 MRT-176 ​Food Sensitivities blood test

    • Comprehensive blood chemistry panel

    • Hormone test (adrenal & sex hormones), if needed

  • Private Consulting (in person or via Zoom)

  • Discount on professional grade supplements

  • Educational videos and resources addressing:

    • blood sugar regulation, movement & exercise, stress resilience, mindful & emotional eating, sleep habits, cooking videos

  • Qigong healing sessions (can be used in place of a consult session)

  • Recipes

  • Private chat

  • Access to online food, mood and lifestyle journal

I take a holistic approach when it comes to working with clients. We address all parts of our being: mind, body, spirit, in addition to our environment.

We will discuss…

  • how to put all the pieces of the puzzle together by looking at  any imbalances from functional tests so we don’t have to guess as to what may be going on

  • what foods, herbs, and supplements work best for optimal nutrition and your situation

  • what it means to be an intuitive eater and how you can learn to trust yourself and love yourself

  • if there are any energy blockages that could contributing to your situation (Qigong healing)

  • basic nutrition and how a healthy gut is our first stop on the road to wellness

  • the importance of good sleep habits, movement, nature, and building our stress resilience muscles

 

You will set weekly goals that are sustainable and work for you. You’ll see results because this is your life, your plan and your goals. You can do this! Are you ready?

I look forward to seeing if we're the right fit for each other!  You will receive an email from me if your application has been approved to schedule your FREE Discovery Call. If I feel I'm not the right practitioner for you, I will also let you know and send you some resources that may be helpful for you.

Private Consulting

FUNCTIONAL LABS DISCLAIMER + INFORMATION ON LABS

I have completed programs with Restorative Wellness Solutions, which is a certification program that grants practitioners access to functional labs to be used for detecting imbalances. Laboratory testing is performed to determine areas of dysfunction and opportunities for healing, not in diagnosis or treatment. I am not a doctor and do not diagnose or treat disease. I suggest each client shares lab results with their primary care doctor and refer to their doctor for any questions. **Labs are available to clients only- I do not offer labs to the general public. I am unable to ship labs to NY, NJ + RI**

What Private Consulting Clients Have to Say...

"I’m so grateful to have taken the one-on-one sessions and began the gut healing program with Julie. Thinking back to when I started, I thought I was fueling my body with mostly healthy choices, but then to learn I have significant food sensitivities was alarming. It was no wonder I wasn’t feeling well and had digestive issues that kept me from living the life I want to. I also love that this program wasn’t only about food. The knowledge she shared with me about supplements, relationships, and movement is so beneficial being on this journey. I can’t believe the difference in how I feel now compared to when I started. Thank you so much for giving me the resources to realign myself and being so supportive through this all."

Structure of the Journey Program

I offer this as an online program, as well as in person. There will be 7 classes over the 9 weeks, please see the specific dates below. The two weeks we do not meet are "Implementation Weeks", giving you focused time to either catch up on material or really put what you've learned into practice. Each week will be a different lesson, with time to connect as a group for support and questions.

During the 9 weeks, you will focus on shifting your foods to whole foods while reducing your intake of processed and high sugar foods. I'll provide you with meal plans and recipes to help with this transition.

You will find that when you make these changes, you will begin to have:

more energy, less cravings, better sleep, less aches & pains, less bloat and stomach issues, just to name a few things!

What group program clients have to say...

Heather

I finally found a program that didn't just focus on portion control, food, and exercise. It helped me understand the psychological reason behind overeating and emotional eating. It not only did that, but it also gave me tools to work with to address those issues. You also learn your own body cues. Looking forward to a better lifestyle."

Melissa

These classes helped me explore my eating habits in a new way. It helped me recognize there are emotional components and triggers to eating. Through exploration and insight, I believe these classes have helped me not only recognize, but gave me the tools to help improve eating but also overall health practices."

Emily

This experience was full of so many great ways to rebuild the relationship I have with food and myself. There are techniques that have become a part of my everyday, which help me eat when I am hungry and stop when I am satisfied - not full and in pain! The connection & sharing with others was helpful to know you're not alone. Julie is such a caring and passionate instructor that provides more than just the information - she provides hope & inspiration!"
The Red Tread

No Current Date Set at this Time

I'm totally interested! Put me on the wait list for the next group please!

As women, we've been misled about our bodies and periods. We've been told that during our "time of the month" we're crazy, out of control, bitchy, irritable, hard to work with, emotional, our periods dirty. Don't talk about it, we're told. Be discreet, we're told. This can all lead to a dysfunctional mindset when it comes to our bodies and a disconnection from them. The Red Thread is where you will unlock all the secrets of our cycles. Dare to talk all things period related. Learn about what is actually happening during each week of your cycle and each stage of life (we’ll talk hormones), learn how diet can affect your cycle and symptoms (we'll talk about & practice blood sugar regulation), discover the amazing things your body is capable of (we’ll talk body appreciation), connect to your divine feminine (we’ll talk self-love). We are all connected, you know, by this Red Thread.

Program Structure

This is a 6-week program that meets online using Zoom. It is a safe place to connect with and support your sisters. Each week there will be a lesson/topic introduced during the call and time for discussion. Some of the topics include:

  • the importance of balancing our blood sugar (we will practice this by modifying our diets)

  • hormones & what goes on during your cycle & at each phase of life

  • our female anatomy

  • nutritional support for hormone health

  • history & the Red Tent

  • how our words matter & changing our mindset

  • harmful products that may be making your cycle symptoms worse

  • how to celebrate & love our lady parts.

We will use journaling and meditation to connect to our divine feminine and introducing small habits for long-lasting change.

You will learn a ton, things you've never been told, and you'll feel great at the end of the 6 weeks!
