To achieve sustained health we offer comprehensive, evidenced-based coaching promoting healthy lifestyle changes. Making the commitment to lifestyle changes gives you a head start toward a better quality of life. That change means making choices every day that will enhance your health and help prevent disease. You will learn to develop habits that assist in eating healthfully, managing stress and enjoying the process.
We target your body's nutritional needs on a completely individual basis and arrive at the most effective program of nutritional changes and healthy whole food supplements. This approach often results in losing body fat although that is not the primary goal. Health is ALWAYS the primary goal. We incorporate the body’s innate ability to overcome the devastating effect of chemical, physical and emotional stressors by eating well, moving well, and thinking well.
Your personalized nutritional program includes nutritional counseling from our registered dietitian to create a food plan that works for your lifestyle and eating preferences with helpful tips, ideas, and techniques; a program guide with recipes, meal planning, food journaling and more to change your relationship to food.
Dietary Supplementation and Meal Replacements
In addition to your personalized meal plan, we will help you identify any nutritional deficiencies that may be contributing toward your fatigue, inflammation, food sensitivities, allergic reactions, swelling and body aches and pains. These symptoms are far more often attributed to thinking that our normal way of consuming food and environmental toxins are not affecting us. They are. Many issues often thought to be a serious disease can be taken care of much more simply than one might think. Serious health issues such as diabetes, high cholesterol, heart disease and hypertension are greatly improved with the change in lifestyle we teach. You may increase your metabolism, decrease cravings by stabilizing blood sugar and help improve lean muscle mass.
Our relaxation training incorporates Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction with a workbook with CD.
Successful stress management reduces the risk of chronic conditions, helps control weight and improves quality of life. We teach you how to manage stress through meditation and tools to overcome behavioral challenges. You will learn the important relationship between stress reduction and body composition and how improved biochemistry can stop weight gain and create balance in your body.
Support and Accountability
AWC's approach not only emphasizes structure to help develop long-term habits but is grounded in providing a team of support to help coach you along your journey. Everyone needs support from people who care and want the very best for them – from childhood to adulthood. Social affiliation with like-minded people is another key to stress reduction, support, and accountability. At The Advanced Wellness Centre, we are here to support you in health and wellness…always!
