Life is about balance, and achieving the life-balance we all strive for is a challenge. Often the most important facet for our overall health and wellness gets pushed to the side because it seems too difficult, overwhelming and uncontrollable. However, with a preventative plan that allows you to make direct and positive changes in the areas you have control over substantial improvements will be seen.
Many medical conditions can be prevented and controlled such as weight, allergies and disease. Therefore as a Holistic Nutritionist and Health Practitioner Lisa Hicks will work with you and the notion that you can greatly affect your own health. The foundation for optimal health and wellness is being informed and provided with the knowledge and skills to reduce health risks in order to live a healthier lifestyle and become more aware of their impact on the environment. These risk reducing behaviours can dramatically decrease the incidence of preventable disease and chronic conditions.
Lisa believes that your wellness starts with an optimal functioning digestive system through proper nutrition. Food is our most important medicine, and if addressed first in the healing process will yield incredible results. The Holistic You model looks at the total person, their dietary intake and lifestyle but is supported by many different holistic modalities creating an integrative approach to health and wellness. The model emphasizes addressing spiritual, emotional, physical and mental aspects of health.
Our health is dynamic and ever-changing. Lisa seeks to establish a lifelong relationship with her clients, to address their ever-changing needs. This program is for every client and can guide you from where you are today to a state of your best health.

In January 2013 I realized I needed to do something to improve my health. I spent 2012 on maternity leave and often neglected taking care of my own health (sleepless nights and caring for a tiny human will do that!). Not to mention the many years before that where health was at the bottom of my list of priorities. Luckily, I discovered Lisa's 30 day green smoothie challenge. The recipes were incredible and a green smoothie drinker was born! But I didn't stop there. Starting each day in such a healthy way led me to consult with a naturopath (it would have been Lisa if we were in the same city), do an elimination diet, and discover that I have sensitivities to wheat and milk. I changed to a whole foods-based diet (most of the time) and took up running. In the span of 8.5 months I went from being tired and sluggish on the couch (literally - I could run for one minute at a time before having to walk) to having enough energy to run the Detroit International Half Marathon. I actually RAN the whole thing! And I lost almost 60lbs along the way! Thank you, Lisa, for being my catalyst. Your challenge kept me interested in a new way of living and saved me! I continue to drink a green smoothie every day for breakfast. What a wonderful way to start each day!
Thank you thank you thank you!!!
