eight foundational aspects to health
• gastrointestinal health
• immune and inflammatory response
• environmental inputs (external and internal)
• levels of oxidative stress and cellular energy
• health of your detoxification systems and
organs
• function of your hormones and neurohormones
• musculoskeletal and structural integrity
• spirit, soul, love, connections, sense of
purpose
Client case study: Heather
• Age: 45
• Occupation: busy advertising designer
• Health concerns: “none, really, just strive for overall
wellness”
• Medical history: depression; on anti-depressants
• Sleep: sometimes compromised when work is extra
stressful
• Digestive: constipated, eliminates 2-3 times per
week; often bloated by the end of the day
• Hormonal: regular cramps each cycle
• Energy (on scale 1–10): 6
• Percentage of home cooked meals per week: 10%

that bypasses the importance of bio-individuality.
