Food is a fundamental part of our daily life. Many of us have great intentions when it comes to the food we eat, but often still struggle with the right choices to make and are confused by all the information and differing opinions on food. We think we can figure it out on our own, and yet challenges remain. A nutritionist can help with:
- Food intolerances / sensitivities
- If you have a particular health condition and want to know how best to support it with nutrition. Common conditions aided by proper nutrition include hypothyroidism, diabetes, insulin resistance, adrenal fatigue, Crohn’s, IBS, colitis, psoriasis, eczema, and many more.
- Digestive troubles including gas, bloating and digestive distress
- Weight loss and weight management
- Struggle with long term follow through with healthy nutrition choices
- Not much of a cook or don’t have time to cook but want to eat healthy
- Struggle with food cravings
- Have challenges with sleep, stress, and energy levels

When devising a healthy lifestyle plan, one size fits none. Plans and tools need to be customized to each person. Plans are customized to individual tastes, food allergies, sensitivities and so on. Your lifestyle is also addressed; whether you’re challenged with being busy and having no time to cook, or need to eat healthy while managing a family with different food needs, or are newly diagnosed with a condition or health challenge that limits your food intake, working with a nutritionist will get you on the right path.
The process of changing your nutrition habits doesn’t happen overnight. Long term success comes with support and a step by step approach. You are not expected to flip a switch and change every habit you have. You will be helped to slowly introduce new ways of eating, as well as lifestyle guidance including mindfulness, managing cravings, dealing with stress, and getting better sleep. All done in a way that’s gradual and feels comfortable for you. Most importantly, you will work together to build a plan that is lasting.

About Caroline Mackey, RNCP, ROHP, CNP, PTS:
Caroline is a champion of accessible, fun and sustainable ways to help you live a healthy and thriving life. From an early age, after a serious back injury sidelined her active life, she struggled with her weight. An obese teenager and adult, she knows the feelings of shame and health struggles that can come from being obese. A health crisis several years ago led to a diagnosis of Crohn’s disease, which was the start of her own wellness journey. After being unable to manage her disease with medication alone, she consulted a naturopath (Dr. Darou!). With her help, she discovered the power that food, fitness and mental wellness has to heal, uplift and transform your life.
Over time, Caroline developed a healthy, loving relationship with her body. She embraces the knowledge that it’s not the outside that matters; it’s about having a healthy and strong mind, body and spirit. Food became a tool to nourish and heal, and activity an outlet for physical and mental strength. Today her Crohn’s is managed without medication; she has lost well over 100 pounds, and has run a half marathon. Her transformation and ongoing wellness journey inspired her to help others with similar struggles. As a certified holistic nutritionist and fitness trainer, Caroline now provides clients with nutrition, self care and fitness tools to overcome health challenges and embrace a full and vibrant life. She is also a frequent speaker, giving talks on health and wellness topics in the community and for businesses.
