When Jeff (‘JC’) works with you, his primary focus as a holistic nutritionist is to motivate, educate, empower, make suggestions, and support your goals. The focus is to research and access current nutrition, help implement positive behavior change, and improve an individual’s nutrition patterns. This is achieved by educating, motivating and empowering you to incorporate nutritional protocols which include nutrient-dense foods that are whole and as unprocessed as possible.

JC is passionate about you achieving real and sustainable health that leads to vitality and lasting health. Spiritual, biochemical, and environmental factors all influence how we live and behave. Balancing these factors can be achieved through a holistic approach to diet and lifestyle.
