ABOUT AMY

Hello I’m a certified Nutrition Consultant and Health Educator in Humboldt County, Ca. I have a deep passion for assisting others in leading a balanced vitality promoting lifestyle. Always starting with the root cause of your health issues I devise a functional plan to meet you where you are. Integrating Ayurvedic diagnostic tools and whole food nutrition I create personalized programs that support mind/body health. I believe you are not only what you eat but what you absorb. So I always focus on
strengthening the digestive system and incorporating lifestyle choices that enhance the body’s ability for
healthy detox. I truly love food and find it inspiring to excite others in delicious ways to prepare and enjoy eating whole foods. Focusing on local and seasonal ingredients whenever possible my meal plans are always deeply nourishing. I believe food is medicine and can transform diseased states into thriving vitality.


Education
 

My education background is in Holistic Nutrition, Ayurveda, aromatherapy and eastern/western
herbalism.

I completed the Nutrition Consultant program at Bauman College where I studied the Foundations of
Health and Therapeutic nutrition. The Eating for Health model is a constant in my work.

I had the great honor of studying with the amazing DeAnna Batdorff at the Dyhana center for Health
sciences where I was trained in the foundations of Ayurveda, pulse assessment, Ayurvedic diagnostics,
whole food nutrition and cooking, aromatherapy and Pancha Karma.

Candis Cantin is another amazing teacher I completed advanced integrative herbalism courses with. We
covered eastern herbalism and western herbalism as well as Ayurveda. Covering topics such as tissue
health, the six stages of disease and constitutional health.
I’ve also studied herbalism, aromatherapy and yoga training with various other teachers over the years.
