I help trying and expecting mothers create vibrant, healthy pregnancies and thrive postpartum through functional nutrition counseling, toxins exposure education, custom food plans, biomechanics and movement work, and positive mindset practice. I work with clients in-person, online, or a combination of both.
I finally got a physical after almost 2.5 years and even though I didn't mention my weight as a concern, the doctor talked about me losing weight and mentioned intermittent fasting. Since I have chronic pain, she said it might help with inflammation. Before making any changes, I asked Michelle-Marie her thoughts... Taking my specific health history into account, Michelle-Marie explained how intermittent fasting could negatively affect my hormone levels and advised against it as a solution to my PCOS symptoms. I appreciate her insight! I'm so lucky to have her in my life!
