Rochelle knew at a very young age that her path in life was to help others. But with other passions in life like cooking and gardening, she didn't know how she would be able to accomplish this path. So when she discovered that she could help people through food, as a holistic nutritionist, she knew that she had found her calling. She went to the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition in Vancouver, BC and graduated to receive her Holistic Nutrition certification as well as her Holistic Culinary certificate. The vast knowledge and education that she gained from attending one of the best Nutrition schools in Canada has given her the tools she needed to truly help people with their health concerns and goals.
One major reason she got into the study of Nutrition is because she saw the decline of her fathers health in the span of a year before he ultimately passed away. He went from being in pretty good health, then had an extremely stressful event in his life, to falling extremely ill with one thing to the next. She came to realize how much of an impact stress can have on the body. She saw the medical system fail her father and it seemed like no one cared what happened to him. If only someone showed him how to manage his stress, gave him the proper foods to eat and listened to his concerns and fears. Eating the right foods or taking the right supplements and having someone to talk to in times of stress can be extremely beneficial. So she wants to be that person for others because we all deserve to live a healthy, happy life.
How did she become interested in Thyroid nutrition? Someone she is very close with was diagnosed with Hashimotos disease, and seeing how much it affected their life, she wanted to do everything she possibly could to help. Through research and reading about the nutritional and supplemental protocols that have been implemented with other cases, she was able to help put that person on the road to a healthier, happier, thyroid. She knows now that getting to the root cause of thyroid disease can completely help to support the thyroid gland and she strives to help others who have thyroid issues.
Even though she specializes in thyroid health, she is passionate about helping anyone with any health concern.
