Weight Optimization

Many people struggle with their weight for various reasons. Most of us have an ideal weight, and there are optimal body compositions (fat and muscle mass %) for longevity for us to strive for. That all being said, I practice health at every size, focusing more on healthy lifestyle habits than the number on the scale. I work to support you in reaching your ideal weight.


The Most Common causes of weight gain:

  1. Hormone imbalance - ex. Thyroid or adrenal dysfunction - an under active thyroid can cause weight gain or trouble losing weight.
  2. Emotional tension and stress leading to over or under eating.
  3. Environmental exposures: Have you heard of obesogens? They are toxins that cause us to gain fat.
  4. Nutrient deficiencies and poor blood sugar balance leading us to feel hungry or crave carbs, even though our energy intake needs have been met.



  1. Assess stress levels (mental, emotional, and physical) and measure adrenal hormone levels and balance. 
  2. Assess potential environmental exposures and measure immune markers as well as levels of toxins in the blood or urine. 
  3. Assess diet and test nutrient levels in blood as well as investigate digestive health through stool analysis or symptom picture.
