It’s so nice to meet you! My Name Is sam & I am a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner.
I created Anchored Wellness to help empower you to become your own wellness advocate & take control of your health. I firmly believe that we have the ability to heal ourselves with the right tools & if we start to listen to what our bodies are telling us. Like many people, maybe yourself included, I struggled with my fair share of digestive issues as well as my relationship with food itself. At a young age I had my stomach pumped, twice, struggled often with ear infections, stomach aches & cramps, insane amounts of bloating & the worst, excessive burping - it was bad. It wasn’t until recently (2 years ago) that I finally felt like I had a solid grasp on my gut issues, except it didn’t exactly stop there. Even though I had control on my digestive issues, I was beginning to view food as the enemy. Through my transition of dealing with said issues, I lost my connection to food. I was incredibly strict on what I was letting myself eat while I was healing my digestion that I began creating a non-loving relationship with my food.
REGAINING YOUR HEALTH IS NOT GOING TO BE EASY, YOU ARE GOING TO FAIL A LITTLE BUT YOU ARE ALSO GOING TO SUCCEED SO MUCH MORE THAN EVER BEFORE. I AM HERE TO HELP YOU FIND THESE ANSWERS AND SUPPORT YOU THROUGH THIS PROCESS.
Food is the essence to life & more importantly, our bodies digest it so that it can provide us with all of the amazing nutrients. My philosophy is that nutrient dense, whole foods made with love & enjoyed with pure love is the key to having a healthy relationship with food. We are always so concerned whether the food that we are eating is good for us or not. Food should be enjoyed in the nature that we found it (seasonally, locally) & by connecting with the people we enjoy it with allowing for organic conversations to flow. We need to learn to play around with different ingredients & appreciate how wonderful food really is. Creating strong relationships with the food itself & understanding that this is what provides us to do the many wonderful chemical processes that happen every single day in our bodies.
How Can I Help You?
As a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, my goal is to help you find a deep connection to your body by using its innate intelligence. We all have our own stories, big or small, & I want you to feel empowerment around food along with your health struggles so that you feel confident. Going through my own health struggles has allowed me to connect on a deeper level with my clients & helps me get my clients the results that they are looking for.
I understand & can appreciate that we are all incredibly different. Each of us require a very different approach to heal ourselves & to achieve our wellness goals, which makes my job so rewarding - we are after all bio-individuals.
