Are you tired of feeling tired? Running on little to no energy? Getting sick all of the time? What if you could wake up feeling rested and energized throughout your day? What would change? How would your life look differently?
What if you didn't have to spend that extra time in front of the mirror covering up blemishes, dark circles and other skin imperfections? Imagine what you could do with that extra time? And how good it would feel to have that confidence.
Imagine a morning free of fashion fits because your clothes fit perfectly. No more hiding behind saggy sweaters, billowy blouses and strategically placed fashion scarves.
Why does nothing seem to work?
How many times have you said this to yourself day after day of trying a new skin regimen or the latest fad diet or spending tons of money on supplements and other health care products claiming to fix all of your problems?
You read health blogs, pin real food recipes, hopped on the green smoothie train, you've even tried going gluten-free for awhile and you religiously track your steps. Does this sound like you?
You're not alone! Especially if you...
- are totally new to the world of holistic health and wellness and are so overwhelmed that you have no idea where to start. So instead, you don't start at all.
- want to make better choices when you're grocery shopping but it can be so confusing! Which products are truly healthy? There are so many available and most of them make health claims.
- find yourself playing the comparison game with other women as you scroll through social media, making yourself feel lesser than. You wish to look and feel a certain way, you can imagine it and deep down you know you deserve to feel incredible.
- are fed up! You're so done with feeling crappy everyday. You know there's a better way and you're ready and willing to do whatever it takes to reclaim YOU, feel balanced and beautiful.
As if all of that isn't bad enough:
You cancel social events whenever your acne becomes impossible to cover up.
You've had to call in sick so much work that your boss has taken notice and your bank account is suffering.
You refuse to go to pool parties because the thought of being in a bathing suit makes you cringe.
Being naked in front of your significant other creates anxiety because you constantly feel bloated.
You dread your period each month because your cramps have you keeled over in pain.
Asking yourself how I know all of this?
Because I was you!
I wish I could tell you that these awful symptoms were what led me to a health care practioner.
THEY SHOULD HAVE!
But I was young and there wasn't as much information available to me as there is now. It wasn't until I happened to watch a documentary called Food Inc. that I had a wake up call about the state of our food.
EVERYTHING CHANGED! I WAS DETERMINED TO LEARN MORE.
I booked an appointment with a Holistic Nutritionist to find out how my symptoms correlated with what was going on inside my body, got educated about the food I was eating and learned which specific foods were right for my body (and which weren't).
That was back in 2009. Since then, I've worked with countless health practitioners, I've taken more supplements, herbs and remedies than I can count, I've had my hormones and food sensitivities tested and I've tried various elimination diets.
I've also continued to learn so I can expand my knowledge base.
Since '09, I've become a certified Culinary Nutrition Expert (which means not only do I have the know how about why the foods we eat are good for us BUT I also know how to use them in the kitchen) and I've specialized in advanced detoxification.
And now I want to share everything that I've learned along the way with YOU!
what I love most about my job:
Helping other women feel and look AMAZING!
I'm ready to help you.
You didn't end up here, feeling this way overnight - right? It happened slowly over many months, maybe even years. So it's unrealistic to think that you're going to see any real, lasting changes lickety-split.
That's why I offer 3 different one-on-one consultation services: 1, 3 and 6 month commitment. It takes some time, dedication and investing back into yourself to feel balanced again.
Lasting change comes from small shifts over a period of time. Not to mention the accountability factor. It's like having the benefit of a personal trainer - you work harder and take it more seriously.
This won't be a cookie cutter approach and you're not going to get a generalized program. I want to know what issues you're dealing with and you'll get a personalized custom wellness plan to solve your unique problem.
If you're ready for real change that's long lasting like these beautiful women, then keep reading:
Valerie, I want you to know what an impression you have made on me, and also to know what a positive change you’ve made in my life. I came to you recovering from cancer, with huge post-surgical complications that left me in bed for 3 months hooked up to tubes and taking many medications – I was mentally, emotionally and physically worn out.
On my first visit to you, you were so incredibly professional, kind, and met me where I was - no judgments or expectations. Your knowledge base is so broad, your attitude so forgiving and caring, and your ability to inspire was very motivating. It helped me greatly that I didn’t leave your office with a list of unrealistic goals for the week, rather with small steps to take – this made the achievement easy and therefore gave me confidence.
The amount of information you gave me on our second visit was fantastic, and I loved that it was all personal to me. The meal plans helped so much, as did the list of supplements, the recipes, the overall do’s and don’ts - everything helped to put me on the right track in a realistic way.
I am now just 3 weeks from beginning my care with you and I feel like a different person – mentally, emotionally and physically. I have so much energy, I sleep well, I feel happy, I’ve lost the sluggish brain that I had.
Your professional and informed direction has helped me increase my knowledge about how I can feed my body what it needs to heal and be healthy, and your caring nature has helped me take the risk, learn, and set realistic goals for myself. You have helped me change my life in such a positive way and I know I could not have done this without you.
I am so incredibly grateful, thank-you. - Krista Keirstead, Primary Classroom Teacher

Hi my name is Leisa. I had the pleasure of meeting Valerie to help me try and control my blood sugar levels. I have type 2 diabetes. The doctor was wanting my levels to be under 7 and I was having trouble getting it there on my own. I was impressed with Valerie's ability to understand exactly what needed to be done to help me achieve my goals. Valerie did an amazing job of getting me on track through changing my eating habits to help with my sugar levels. I just had my blood tested by my doctor this week and after following Valerie's instructions, which I might add were simple and easy to do, I am able to say that my levels are now at 6.8 - Leisa, York Region, ON
I know you probably have a few more questions before you're ready to invest your hard earned money, so here are some FAQ's:
The 1 month package consists of 3 visits spaced out over the course of a month. Our initial visit together includes an assessment of your lifestyle, dietary habits, unique issues and concerns. You'll also walk away with some basic preliminary steps to take. We will meet 2 weeks later where you will receive a comprehensive nutrition plan to follow. Our third visit acts as a check in point where we will reassess how you are doing and determine what steps to take next.
The most obvious difference is the time commitment. The 6 month package is more intensive as we cover more ground. Although both packages include: an intro to healthy eating, Digestion 101 and an assessment of your unique issues and concerns, the 6 month package emphasizes detoxification (specifically colon & liver) and gut repair. It's more of a total body rebalancing.
All consultations are done virtually (over the computer) via Skype. If you aren't familiar with Skype, it's a free application that allows us to have a video conference where we can see and hear one another. It's pretty awesome! This means that no matter where you are in the world - we can connect.
After your non-refundable payment is completed, you’ll receive a link to my calendar so you can choose the best time that fits your schedule. Appointments are available on Tuesdays from 3 pm - 5pm and Thursdays from 9 am to 5 pm, Eastern Standard Time (EST). This is first come, first served, so if the time you want is taken, you can choose to book the next month. The appointment must be booked within 60 days of payment. You'll be prompted to fill out the nutrition intake form while you're scheduling your appointment online. Then all you have to do is show up on Skype at our scheduled time.
Payment plans are only offered for 3 &6 month services, broken down like so: 3 month option can be paid in 2 instalments of $449.50. The first payment due right away and the second due at the end of the second month of working together. 6 month option can be paid in 3 instalments of $566.33. The first payment due right away, the second due at the end of the third month and the third due at the end of the fifth month of working together.
Payment plans can only be made via e-money transfer and are due promptly. Missed or late payments will result in termination of working together. Please contact me directly if you require a payment plan.
For the 3& 6 month services, we will meet twice a month bi-weekly. The first consult will be about an hour in length where I will go over the focus for that particular month. You will be sent a treatment plan for the month including everything we discuss, lifestyle recommendations, a supplement list and a custom meal plan. And of course, there will be plenty of time for questions. The second consult is a follow up visit to ensure that things are going smoothly and to address any issues that may have come up since our last meeting.
If we've previously worked together, there are follow-up options available to you. If it's been over a year since I've seen you, then you must select the 60 min follow-up option. If it's been less than a year since I've seen you, then you are welcome to select the 30 min follow-up option.
Although I offer ready-made meal plans through the online store, I can also customize a meal plan to your specific needs and dietary restrictions. For example, your lifestyle - maybe you love to cook and be in the kitchen or maybe you have zero time and need meals that are quick and convenient. I'll take your food likes/dislikes into account as well as any food allergies or sensitivities that you may have.
I can personally promise that you'll notice, see and feel some level of change from working with me one-on-one. Whether it's less bloating, weight loss, improved skin, decrease in allergy symptoms or overall general feeling of wellness, BUT only if you put in the work. If you're expecting a quick fix or magic cure-all and don't think you'll take action, then of course you probably won't get any results. If that sounds like you, then I strongly suggest you don't waste the money.
Please understand this - I'll be your biggest cheerleader as you work towards your health and wellness goals. I'll provide you my expertise, years of personal experience, effective tools, strategies and a unique treatment plan BUT I can't be the one doing all of the work. You have to be ready and willing.
I've helped countless women do just that with step by step strategies, an easy to follow meal plan and mouth-watering recipes that don't compromise on flavour. And, I know I can help you too.
I know you're still reading because you want to feel and look better. You want to eat healthier and live cleaner, you just need a littler guidance and some inspiration.
