Wellness philosophy

Lauren believes that optimal health is achievable for everyone, but the path to get there is a very individual process.  We all come from different backgrounds, with different lifestyles and preferences.  Lauren’s philosophy is that there is no one-size-fits-all diet or treatment plan.  What works for one person, isn’t necessarily right for another.  Taking the time to fully understand each patient’s specific needs, history, emotional health, environment, and lifestyle is a priority for Lauren.


One of her foundational beliefs is that our emotions play a huge role in the state of our health.  Addressing one’s emotional state is just as important as their physical health.  Emotions such as anger, resentment, grief, and worry affect not only our nervous system, but other organs as well.  The perfect diet can only do so much if one is still suffering with toxic emotions.  This is why Lauren prioritizes understanding her patients’ emotional needs and includes life-coaching principles in her treatment plans.


By addressing the whole person, Lauren feels that there is nothing that can’t be  treated.  Given the proper support and a willingness to commit to a new lifestyle, optimal health is not only probable, it’s inevitable.
