My Approach



From the wellness desk of Founder & Health Coach, Janice Husk, Feed the Mind Transform the Body


In the three and six month programs, I practice a holistic approach to health and wellness, which means that I look at lifestyle balance through the lens of all seven dimensions of wellness and how they are connected.  The ingredients that create vibrant lives aren't just the food we eat, they are the physical, emotional, spiritual, vocational, intellectual, environmental, and be nourishing or defeating.  For instance, does stress at your job or in your relationship cause you to overeat? Does lack of sleep or low energy prevent you from exercising?  What does a healthy lifestyle look like to you?  Imagine what it could mean to you to create a healthy balance in all areas of your life and achieve the best vision of yourself possible? 


In our shorter programs such as the 14 and 21 day detox, cleanse and jumpstart programs we focus on crowding out the junk foods, cleansing the mind and body, trying new foods, and implementing new habits during three phases of each program.  The backdrop to these programs is getting in the kitchen and learning the why's, when's & how-to's of preparing and enjoying simply prepared food that doesn't require a great deal of time in the kitchen.





Integrative Nutrition® Plate

The Integrative Nutrition Plate emphasizes the importance of local and organic produce, whole grains, high-quality proteins, plant-based fats, and water. It shows you how a plate should appear at mealtime and emphasizes the importance of proportions and portion size. To complete the picture, the plate is surrounded with lifestyle factors that create optimal health: relationship, career, physical activity and spirituality. I’ll introduce you to some of the healthiest foods on the planet and teach you how to find what’s healthiest for your unique body!



Primary Food™

It’s easy to overlook all of the things that contribute to our sense of nourishment and fulfillment. It’s not just the food we eat that affects our health, but all of the other factors present in our daily lives. Healthy relationships, a fulfilling career, regular physical activity, and a spiritual awareness are essential forms of nourishment. When these “primary foods” are balanced, what you eat becomes secondary. I will support you in achieving all of your goals, from eating the right foods for your body to living an inspired, fulfilling life.


Bio-Individuality™

The concept of bio-individuality is the idea that each of us has unique food and lifestyle needs. One person’s food is another person’s poison, and that’s why fad diets tend to fail in the long run. Working on the principle of bio-individuality, I’ll support you to make positive changes that are based on your unique needs, lifestyle, preferences, and ancestral background.


Crowding Out

Many nutrition experts give their clients a list of foods to avoid and foods to eat, which explains why so many people are turned off by nutrition. My approach is different – by eating and drinking foods that are good for you, you will naturally have less room and desire for unhealthy foods. Simply put, you will “crowd out” the unhealthy food in your diet. This takes a little practice to make happen, but I will support you all the way.

 


Deconstructing Cravings

Cravings play a critical role in understanding what your body needs and shouldn’t be ignored. When you learn how to deconstruct your cravings and understand what they’re really telling you, you will be able to reclaim a sense of balance and harmony.
