We Welcome a Holistic Nutritionist
Written by: Alexandria Muirhead, R.H.N
Hello everyone! I am so excited to be joining the team here at Touchstone Health. My goal as an R.H.N (Registered Holistic Nutritionist) is to create personalized protocols that suit you, your lifestyle and help you be successful. I take the work out of it for you and give you what you are looking for! I have two specialities that I am extremely passionate about: autoimmune diseases and maternal health.
Helping people with autoimmune diseases such as Crohns, colitis, rheumatoid arthritis, celiac, Hashimoto’s, psoriasis, and multiple sclerosis is something that is very close to my heart. I am so passionate about helping you take your life back because I have an autoimmune disease that took over my life for many years. I was too sick to see my friends, do well in school, to be active and be me. This was something that consumed me since I was a child and was only diagnosed when I was in my early 20’s. My husband also has an autoimmune disease that took over his life. Through a personalized diet, lifestyle and supplement protocol, we are both in remission and living our best lives! I have been on both sides of an autoimmune disease. I know what it’s like to be sick and I also cared for a loved one while they were sick. Each side is difficult in their own ways. I have the perspective to help guide you through this difficult time. We are both walking proof that you can live the life you want with an autoimmune disease. Having an autoimmune disease myself means that I have tried and tested everything out there. I will give you honest and real feedback since I was in your shoes.
I am also extremely passionate about maternal health, preparing for pregnancy, prenatal, and post-partum health for women. There is so many simple things you can do to improve your fertility, your health and how you feel during pregnancy and postpartum. These simple things will also help improve the health and happiness of your baby. I am passionate about maternal health because this information is not readily available to women or families even though there is lots of scientific research behind them. Empowering and educating women on their bodies during this incredible phase of their life brings me so much joy! I want to be part of your journey to help you and your family be as healthy and happy as you can! I help women prepare their bodies for pregnancy, optimize their health and mindset during pregnancy, prepare for post-partum and for recovery during post-partum. I help you organize and manage your time and your life to achieve all that you want to achieve during this very busy time! I have tips and tricks to nourish your body and your mind through each of these stages.
Holistic nutrition is so much more than just food. I look at everything in your life; the food you eat, your sleep hygiene, your lifestyle, your genetics, your community, how you move your body, and how happy you are. Each of these things play a role in how you feel and they all need to be addressed to help you be the best version of yourself! I am here to help walk you step by step through your journey.
I am very grateful and excited to help guide you through your health journey to achieve your goals!
