Diet and Lifestyle Recommendations to keep you healthy as you age
Education about how your body works
Addressing the cause rather than treating symptoms
Blog articles to inspire you, educate you, and empower you to live your healthiest life.
E-books, videos and classes are opportunities for you to discover how to feed your brain, cook a stress-less breakfast, and much more.
Enjoy cooking when you have recipes that can eliminate gluten, dairy, corn, eggs, grains, potatoes, nightshades, nuts, sesame, ferments/yeast, fruit, seafood, and animal products. I also have recipes that follow SCD/GAPS, AIP, or low FODMAPs.
“Our culture encourages us to look for the solutions to our problems outside of ourselves … when they lie within us all along.“
Holistic Health Counseling
with Erin Livers
You didn’t wake up today hoping to feel pain, low energy or an uncomfortable symptom, and you may not want to take prescription drugs to mask those symptoms. Rather, you’d like get to the root of any health problem in order to create a foundation of health from a healthy diet and lifestyle.
“Erin’s comprehensive understanding of nutrition and how it relates to the mental, emotional, spiritual body has completely changed the way I think about food and nourishing myself on every level. After learning from her and following her advice, I have never felt so emotionally stable and physically sound. I used to battle with constant hunger and light-headedness, mood swings and extreme fatigue. Even though I was raised with a healthy lifestyle, I had no idea how to correctly nourish myself. Now, not a day goes by that I don’t give my patients nutritional advice and I am always astounded by what the average person doesn’t know about eating properly. This is invaluable information that everybody should have and integrate into their lives.”
“At age 59 you’d think I would know how to eat well… wouldn’t you? Well, after nearly a year of extreme pain, lots of pharmaceuticals, back surgery and a bad reaction to anesthesia and other post-op medications, I was depressed and physically depleted. My niece recommended I call Erin Livers. My first thought was “that’s absurd… food is going to fix me? What a joke!” But I really respect my niece’s opinion so I made the first phone call. The short story is that now, after thoroughly following Erin’s advice for only eight weeks, I am healed, happy and strong. I used to think that I truly “needed” coffee and that bread was essential with all of my meals. Now I know that these cravings were an unhealthy response to basic hunger. Hunger that was never properly satisfied. I listen to my body differently now and I respond with appropriate foods. In fact, I don’t wait to respond. When I eat the right foods at the right time I never experience my old cravings. I needed a teacher for this and fortunately I’m not too old to learn.”
“After several years of suffering from digestive problems with no real diagnosis or solution, working with Erin truly turned my life around. Erin helped me identify & eliminate problem foods from my diet very quickly and I haven’t felt this great in years! Erin also helped me develop a very healthy yet appetizing diet and taught me that gluten-free and dairy-free is not the end of the world — her recipes are fantastic. Between her delicious recipes and her supplement recommendations, I’m still able to have a nutritious, well-balanced diet even with my dietary restrictions. Erin’s support & extensive knowledge during this process was invaluable. I highly recommend Erin — thanks to her, this is the best I’ve felt in years.”
Food As Nourishment
Food As Nourishment is a reminder that our relationship with food is one of the most intimate and enduring relationships we’ll have during our lifetime. Our diet provides a daily connection to our body and requires a commitment that we can’t ignore or neglect if we want to support the health of our body.
Think of the foods you choose every day; they provide energy and nutrition for your body, as well as pleasure and nourishment for your entire being. The energetic vibration of the food in your diet sets the tone for your life, supporting you to accomplish all you desire, or not. As Annie Dillard has said, “How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.” Let me help you create a philosophy to guide your daily choices, which allows you to live your life in accordance with your values, while experiencing health, vitality and true holistic nourishment.
The word diet comes from the Greek, diata, which means ‘way of life.’ When we choose the experiences, people, routines, activities and foods that nourish us, we are truly choosing the “way” of our lives, congruent with who we are, and that truly nourishes us. It’s my belief that when we’re educated about the role of food in our life, how our choices affect our health, and how to listen to the voice of our own guidance, we can free ourselves from the unhealthy influences that often cause us physical symptoms. I believe this is an individual quest and there is no one diet for everyone.
