Whole. Real. Nourishing.
Understanding how real food can nourish and heal the body from within.
Kay is a strong believer that living a healthy lifestyle is not a cookie cutter fit for all to follow. It is a personal journey to finding what feels right for the body.
Kay is the Philippines’ FIRST Certified Functional Medicine Health Coach. Over the past year she has worked with Functional Medicine Practitioners and Doctors to help clients take back control of their health and understand how best to feed and nourish their bodies. With her training in Functional Medicine Health Coaching and Plant-Based Nutrition, Kay’s approach goes beyond focusing on just one aspect of health. Her programs are designed to help her clients create and execute a health goal that moves beyond their diagnosis. As part of her toolbox, she integrates Functional Medicine, Functional Nutrition and Mind-body Medicine to truly be able to help her clients create lasting change in their lifestyle and nutrition.
Kay works closely with each client supporting them and holding their hand in discovering the factors affecting their health and happiness. Because each individual has unique and specific needs, Kay tailor-fits her recommendations and programs depending on the goals and current health state of each person. Her clients range from those adopting a Paleo lifestyle to being vegan / vegetarian and even weight loss. She has also supported clients with specific ailments such as diabetes, hypertension, extreme food intolerances, digestive issues, autoimmune conditions and cancer.
FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE AND NUTRITION
A departure from the “one size fits all” take on nutrition, Functional Medicine is a systems based approach that focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of disease. Each symptom or differential diagnosis may be one of many (in the body) contributing to an individual’s illness. Similar to a tree with the roots as one of the important reasons why it is strongly rooted to the ground, Functional Medicine recognizes that we are influenced by the same roots that affect our health as a whole - Physical, Mental, Emotional and the Environment around us.
As a FM Health Coach, Kay advocates a very personalized style of coaching highlighting the principles of root-cause treatments with an emphasis that food is medicine. Kay focuses on helping her clients understand foods’ healing properties. She works with clients to help them recognize foods that create toxic or inflammatory effects on their bodies and then develops a unique program to help heal them from these. Because we know that health is not limited to just eating healthy food, Kay recognizes the importance of mental and emotional health. She also addresses underlying emotional factors and life stressors that drive food choices and behaviors. She uses tools like mind-body medicine, positive psychology, meditation and EFT Tapping (Emotional Freedom Technique).
Ultimately Kay would like to inspire and share her expertise in the importance of how food can greatly affect our lives. As Socrates said, “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”
