“The best proof of love is trust.”
~ Dr. Joyce Brothers (Diane Bauer)
Certified Holistic Nutritional Consultant
Hi, I’m Andrena – a Mom, Wife, Food Lover, Cook, Gardener and an Entrepreneur from Calgary, Alberta. I am a passionate Holistic Practitioner whose goal is to empower and educate people who are committed to realizing their health and wellness goals.
I have always been interested in live, wholesome nutritious food and know the value of knowing where your food comes from. I grew up eating fresh food from my Grandmother’s garden and watching her make meals from scratch – nothing came out of a box and nothing was processed. She made amazing meals with just a few ingredients and seasonings.
Life and busy schedules took over, running to competitions, games, tournaments – the life of a busy mother of two sons who were involved in multiple sports, and I fell into the fast food trap. Hence, not always following what my heart knew to be the best for my body.
Our bodies are very resilient and patient, but eventually symptoms and issues appear. That is what happened to me. I started experiencing major digestive problems, which would often keep me up at night. I didn’t immediately pay attention and the digestive issues became more and more intense. However, I went to see a Naturopathic Doctor and stated to explore various food triggers, sensitivities and allergies. My results were surprising, intrigued and wanted to learn more. I came across the Holistic Nutrition program at Canadian School of Natural Nutrition and I knew this was the program for me.
What I have learned is that everyone is biochemically unique and that wellness encompasses the triad of Body, Mind and Spirit. Proper nutrition helps to maintain, rejuvenate, and rehabilitate our body as well as playing a major role in the prevention of disease and sickness.
I have helped many clients overcome allergy issues, increase their energy, and identify what foods and lifestyle changes to make to facilitate these changes. Since everyone is biochemically unique, I will work with you to identify what is right for you and your body. I am so excited to share my passion with you and to help you on your path to increased energy, vitality and wellness.
