About me

Helen Gardiner-Parks is certified as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner which means she gets to play with food AND help people. The best job in the world, in her opinion. Helen also has a master's degree in elementary education from Sarah Lawrence College and a bachelor's degree in psychology from Wellesley College. She is a writer as well as an avid exerciser (pickleball anyone?!). Helen practices yoga on her home mat and uses meditation to keep herself grounded and useful to her community. And, to round things out, she has played the violin since she was 8 and has passable skills in spoken Spanish.

Helen has been studying nutrition ever since she became a vegetarian in college. Fast forward a couple of decades until, shortly after the age of 40, Helen developed arthritis and intense gastro-intestinal issues. Her knees hurt so much, she had to stop hiking--and going out in public was dicey. In order to feel better, Helen explored multiple healing options until she read Jordan Rubin's story and found The Weston A. Price Foundation with its focus on traditional eating. This was more than a decade ago and today Helen continues to be fully committed to a whole foods, sustainably-raised diet, hikes and runs to her heart's content, and goes out in public with impunity. Life is good and she is eager to share what she has learned with anyone who will listen. Her family may roll their collective eyeball when she encourages them to eat homemade kombucha or kimchi, but they can't argue with their mom's energy level!

My Philosophy of Care

Vegetarianism let me down! My body fell apart and, in rebuilding it, I realised my gift in supporting others to do the same.

What You Can Expect On Your First Visit

My clients appreciate that I listen and work with them gently, rather than drawing red lines in the sand.

My Inspiration

Food is medicine, medicine is food. The body responds to the flow of energy in real, whole foods, as well as to the power of Reiki to shift emotional or spiritual blockages. With my support, we get the mind, body, and spirit back in sync.

I have the pleasure of working with Helen Garden-Parks which started this spring when I enrolled in her class “Meet You Where Your At” (MYWYA) for total health counseling. Throughout my lifetime, I have tried many ways to be healthier and lose weight and have always found them temporary. With Helen's program, I am learning how to understand the food I eat and how my body works with this food. Helen with my willingness has me modifying my eating habits. She showed me how to read labels and introduce healthier things into my diet. Helen taught me which foods encourage a healthier lifestyle and healthier living. Helen also models how to do simple exercise and meditation so that my body would work more efficiently towards my goal. Through Helen's program I stopped thinking about weight loss and began thinking that I was learning to change my life. To date, I am pleased to say that I have improved my health, lost weight and continue to lose more. I truly do not believe I would have learned everything I did and feel so good about reaching my goals without Helen and her program. Helen is the utmost professional yet she has a touching compassion and dedication to her clients. I am thrilled to be able to say that I continue to rely on her expertise, and she is a wonderful support for my goals. Enjoy your adventure, Glenn Parks"
Helen turned my life around. She led a 7-day workshop on diet and anxiety. I learned so much from that workshop that I immediately, without hesitation, joined her "Meet You Where You Are At" 21-day sugar detox program. She led us gently through a captivating education of our foods and how they affect us- engaging our minds, bodies, and spirits. Helen is the total package of compassion, knowledge, truth, wit and grace. You will be amazed at your own life-changing transformation!
