Introducing Certified Holistic Nutritional Consultant Pamela Groulx!
Every aspect of your health relies on nutrition! Food becomes the fuel for your body to function, and the building blocks to support your physical structure. Just as premium fuel is necessary for optimal performance of a fancy sports car, you can enhance your performance (and health) with ideal nutrition customized for you. As a Holistic Nutritional consultant my focus on gut health ensures you get the most out of the food you eat – to help you look and feel your best.
Holistic Nutrition will benefit:
- gastrointestinal symptoms (acid reflux, bloating, gas, indigestion, diarrhea, constipation)
- stress management
- weight management
- food sensitivities and intolerances
- skin conditions (helps reduce rashes, acne, eczema)
- immune function, autoimmune conditions, cancer risk
- mood (eg. anxiety and depression)
- brain health
- cardiovascular health
- hormone balance, reproductive health, thyroid and adrenal glands
- respiratory system (asthma, allergies)
- nervous system
- pain and inflammation throughout your body
- sleep quality
The inspiration for my career in Holistic Nutrition came from my daughter who was diagnosed with autoimmune conditions before the age of two. The improvements that we saw in her, mere weeks after adopting a gut-healthy protocol, ultimately motivated me to pursue an education in natural nutrition – and to help others! My deep understanding of physiology from my previous career in Nuclear Medicine and MRI allow me to piece together the intricate puzzle of each client’s health challenges and correct nutrient deficiencies through simple, delicious and nutritious food. For me, nutrition has become an integral part of being a mother, sister, wife, friend and dog owner.

While I can’t eliminate the stress in your life, I can help you cope with stress by providing your body with important nutrients to support your natural stress response system. You know stress takes a lot out of you – that’s why you feel so exhausted! Stress literally depletes essential nutrients. This simple tea can help to replenish one of the most important anti-stress minerals – Magnesium.
If you have:
- anxiety / depression
- low energy
- muscle cramps
- constipation or painful bowel movements
- type II diabetes or metabolic syndrome
- high blood pressure or an irregular heart beat
Getting enough Magnesium can help. It is estimated that up to 75% of North Americans do not get enough of this mineral from their diet alone. Increase your magnesium consumption with:
1 whole organic banana (peel included) – washed, and black tips cut off
4 cups water
1 cinnamon stick (optional)
Bring to a boil and simmer 25mins or longer.
Bananas are high in magnesium, and the peel of the banana has 3x more magnesium than the fruit! When using the peel, it is important to choose an organic banana (you do not want to concentrate pesticides in your tea!) This magnesium rich tea can be enjoyed warm or cold. I recommend a cup in the evening to help you relax and unwind for a good night sleep. Naturally caffeine free, it can be enjoyed anytime, day or night. Try it as a base for smoothies, puddings or your favourite elixir. For more information or to discover how improving your Gut Health can benefit you, call Pamela for a free 15min consultation.
