The diagnosis you received will, no doubt, be life-changing. I want you to know that you can have the best quality of life possible within the context of your illness and any medical treatment you may be having.
You have a track record of victories (great and small), built-in motivation and inner strength, all of which you can harness with personalised, evidence-based nutrition and lifestyle interventions to take control of your health.
Best of all, you know yourself better than anyone and have the final say in what fits in with your goals.
You are the expert you’ve been waiting for and I’m honoured that you would even consider choosing me to be your guide.
HI, I’M CHI.
I’m a registered nutritionist, Kresser Institute Trained Practitioner and your ally in your mission to have the best quality of life possible. I help people like you tap into the physical and emotional resources you already have – but may have lost sight of – so that you can live as fully as possible despite having a chronic illness.
I’m also a wife and a mother who has witnessed the challenges that family members faced as they tried to navigate life having been diagnosed with a neurological condition or cancer.
I have witnessed the fear, loneliness and hopelessness that diagnoses like these can bring and wished that things could be different.
My experiences, love of learning and a burning desire to help others prompted me to enrol on the nutrition course at the College Of Naturopathic Medicine and to subsequently complete the Kresser Institute’s ADAPT Practitioner Training Program.
I also trained with Lucille Leader and Dr Geoffrey Leader in the collaborative management of Parkinson’s and I am currently training with Dr Nina Fuller-Shavel to deepen my knowledge of a whole-person (and physiology-based) approach to both cancer prevention and support during and beyond cancer treatment.
It is both a pleasure and a privilege to offer people living with Parkinson’s and cancer the best of both worlds – a root cause approach designed to complement medical intervention.
