My name is Annaliisa.
I believe in connecting with the quiet power of nature—whole organic foods and the body in balance—to unleash a truly blissful state of wellness. Because being “healthy” just means being you—the “you” that could flourish with just a little nutritional detective work, education, encouragement, and accountability. So what does that look like?
Well, it all starts with listening. My mission is to restore you back to your rightful state of health and vitality. To do that, I need to know your story.
My own story is probably like yours in at least a few ways. I experienced bouts of depression, emotional eating, terrible acne, and frustrating searches for what it means to be “healthy”. At one point, after running a successful food manufacturing business in Toronto for nearly four years and becoming a mother, I found myself completely worn out. I was diagnosed with adrenal fatigue.
Change was my only option.
So I became a yoga teacher, learning how to transform my life through self-care. A combination of nutritional therapy, natural herbs, and healing foods helped me to overcome my adrenal fatigue. And when I studied at the Institute of Holistic Nutrition, something critical fell into place.
You see, I spent most of my childhood in Estonia with my grandparents. They lived closely to the earth, with customs and skills carried from an earlier time. My grandfather tapped birch trees and created herbal remedies. In the kitchen, jars of kefir fermented on the counter and my grandmother prepared meals that reflected her deep knowledge of food.
Becoming a Holistic Nutritionist meant reclaiming some of the wisdom my grandparents taught me. Wellness is accessible to all. It’s available in nature; in the whole organic foods you can learn to heal yourself with. Nature helps you to connect with your nature, with the uplifted, happy, and healthy self you are capable of being.
Once I know your story, I can help you make the change you’re so ready to make. What are your struggles, your hopes, your goals, and your realities? Whoever you are and whatever you’re dealing with, we can make healthy eating simple and delicious!
My specialties include:
- natural long-term weight loss
- stress and anxiety relief
- digestive wellness
- whole body detoxification
My philosophy of nutrition involves:
- A customized approach to health by understanding the root cause of your health concerns
- An understanding that there is no one diet that fits all ~ we all have different needs
- Learning to practice balance and moderation rather than calorie counting
- Taking an individualistic approach that fits you and your family’s lifestyle with practical resources and tools
- Creating health plans that work with your busy schedule
What you’ll get from me is:
Customization based on deep listening
There is no “one size fits all” approach to healthy eating. So when I create a plan for you, it’s going to be for you and nobody else. Consider me your health detective. That means I’m going to get at the root causes of your particular struggles and then create a simple, reasonable—and delicious—plan for addressing them.
Working with me means investing a small amount of time into learning how to take care of yourself for the rest of your life. You’ll walk away from the experience feeling so clear about what it means to heal and balance your body through nutrition. I’ll turn down the noise, tune you into the truth, and empower you to really do this healthy eating thing!
Encouragement and accountability
Few of us can make these changes on our own. I’m here to help you achieve lasting success though the proven power of accountability and encouragement. I’ll help you stick to the plan and give you the inspiration you’re going to need to make these changes stick.
