Chef Ellen LLC
Integrative Chef/Health Coach and Author
My major focus is on optimal gut health. When our intestinal cells aren't healthy, the imbalance opens the door to many common issues such as sugar cravings, skin issues, malabsorption of nutrients, hormonal problems, stress, migraines, exhaustion, and auto-immune disease. If you are feeding this bad bacteria with the wrong foods and not eating in a more relaxed state, inflammation takes over, elevates these issues, and opens the door to more disease.
It is built into our DNA to heal. Our immune and brain health starts in the gut. Our gut is the epicenter and understanding the impact undigested foods will have on your overall health is vital. www.gottagetgut.com www.chefellen.com
My own health issues, the importance of becoming my own advocate, self-care, and understanding the mind-body connection.
My reputation as a healthy private chef has led me on a unique path to explore many dietary theories. I am not one to believe in the one size fits all mentality. After 20 years in the food industry helping clients eat better, I decided to take my education a step further and focus on the individual as such. Who knew my first real client would be myself?
Your health history is our first step, and vital for me to support you on this journey. Questions and answers from this short personal history will give me vital information on our first steps together. From here, the healing begins. I will hold you accountable for your goals, but I need your dedication and commitment.
Self-care not only requires food, water, and exercise. I learned this the hard way. I thought I had it all figured out with food and exercise but my health took a turn. It's not just about the food on our plates. A well-rounded human being needs quality time spent aligning their overall spirit, eliminating stress, finding joy, and holding onto happiness.
