Holistic Nutrition

Julie Kennedy aims to employ a comprehensive approach to holistic nutrition advisory, including working with her clients to optimize their diets for their specific needs and considerations, culinary education, lifestyle modifications and physical fitness regimens.

Resulting from her own personal journey from illness to wellness, as well as her training and vast experience helping other willing individuals, Julie has made it her life’s mission to aid and empower others in developing healthy lifestyles. At age 20, while attending nursing school at TCU, Julie was diagnosed with discoid lupus. The medications she was treated with made her feel even worse, so Julie developed the necessary knowledge and skills to take charge of her own health, including transitioning from pharmaceutical medications to a holistically-based protocol. She remained in remission for ten years by leading a healthy lifestyle.

After a 10-year stint in remission, Julie’s lupus resurfaced after the birth of her daughter in 2009. Julie was also diagnosed with fibromyalgia, adrenal fatigue, hypothyroidism and hormone imbalances. Additionally, Julie’s daughter struggled with severe gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Julie found herself exploring a whole world of food allergies and intolerances to treat her daughter, as well as autoimmune, hormone, thyroid and adrenal remedies for herself. Once again, Julie was determined to treat herself, and now her daughter, naturally. Today, Julie and her daughter are living in wellness and thriving based on their holistic lifestyles.

Julie is certified as an integrative nutrition health coach.

WHY CONSIDER HOLISTIC NUTRITION ADVISORY?

Starting with optimal nutrition, Julie will serve as a mentor and coach to help clients achieve their wellness goals by addressing the multiple, interconnected facets of a healthy lifestyle, which include one’s diet and relationship with food, exercise, spirituality, career and interpersonal relationships. Working in close collaboration with her clients, Julie aspires to guide them to feel more empowered, healthier and happier in all areas of their life.

WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE PROCESS?

Nutrition sessions are offered at 45 minute and one hour time frames. Among other items, sessions will cover wellness and nutrition education and coaching, health-related goal setting and maintenance, a detailed review and assessment of your existing diet, a grocery store visit, a “pantry makeover”, cooking and baking best practices, and an analysis of your physical fitness regimen (including how yoga can be most optimally incorporated).
