Sometimes we find ourselves struggling with mental or physical health issues and we are unsure of what to do. We may feel overwhelmed by the seemingly contradictory and confusing messages and diet trends and need help sifting through to find clarity for our own unique situation.
Whether we have been diagnosed with a disease or chronic health issue or we just feel off and can’t seem to revive our energy or enthusiasm for life, sometimes it’s helpful to be reminded that we are not alone and that there is always a way through. It is said that validation and knowledge are two of the most powerful tools for recovery.
When we begin to understand not just the “diagnosis” but the struggle of the mind-body in the context of our lives and the modern world, this is when light can begin to shine through and offer insight and guidance necessary to move forward.
The Holistic Nutrition counselling offered at Repose addresses a spectrum of mental and physical health issues including (but not limited to): anxiety, depression, OCD, ASD, ADD/ADHD, chronic illness, autoimmune disease, diabetes, weight issues, digestive disorders, heart and liver health, adrenal dysfunction, cancer-prevention, viral or bacterial-related symptoms, asthma and so forth. Even something like PTDS may hold on longer or differently due to physical components that can be addressed through a holistic approach.

Dani MacKenzie is a Registered Holistic Nutritionist through the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition in Vancouver, BC. She is part of the team at RePose and works as a holistic nutritional counsellor and teacher. Dani believes just as strongly in the power of the mind-body connection as she does in the foundational belief of food as medicine.
As the environment of the modern world is vastly different than it has ever been, Dani believes our approach to health must reflect the impact these changes are having on our physical bodies and mental well-being. At that point, we can better understand the struggle of our health, within this context, and what is needed to move forward on the path toward recovery and healing.
Learning to recognize diet trends that continue to keep us stuck in certain patterns of thinking is sometimes a big part of the learning process and of letting go the old and bringing in the new. Our bodies are designed to heal and exist in a state of harmony and equilibrium. The work Dani does with clients looks at the factors that are disruptive to this natural state as well as the critical elements required for restoration and an inspired sense of well being.
Dani also believes that our bodies are designed with a dynamic and symbiotic relationship with foods and the soil they’re grown in. Foods that not just nourish our body and minds but are also capable of redirecting disease processes toward healing and then toward maintaining a daily sense of energy and vitality.
If you are struggling with any kind of physical or mental health issue, please reach out. Dani can be contacted through firstname.lastname@example.org. She offers a free 15 minute initial phone consult to determine if her services are right for you.
