About Me

Hi, my name is Glenda – I’m a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, specializing in Mental Health.

I came to be an Holistic Nutritionist, as the result of my own lived experience.  About fifteen years ago, I was seeing 7 different doctors, (ND’s and MD’s), having countless tests, multiple medications and ‘buckets’ of supplements – but no one had an answer for why I felt so unwell all.of.the.time.  I was desperate, I had diagnoses of chronic fatigue, a heart condition, hypothyroidism, IBS – I felt as though I’d tried everything…  Then, on intuition, I decided to experiment with food – I made some pretty major changes in how and what I was eating – (Lucky for me it worked, because I didn’t have any particular guidance to follow). The shift towards health didn’t take long…  BUT, how food could help me when all the doctors could not?  I had to know why… 

 

“I felt as though I’d tried EVERYTHING…” 

 
 

I went on to study at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition.  Upon graduating I had the immediate opportunity to work with family members who had been struggling with mental health issues for years, in some cases decades.  It was because of the powerful impact holistic nutrition had on these individuals and how it changed their lives for the better, that I decided to continue my studies and become a specialist in the field of mental health.

 

My mission is to gently guide and educate individuals in making strategic nutrition changes to help improve brain function,

(memory, mood & cognition)

 

I’m also the Nutritionist at the START Clinic for Mood & Anxiety Disorders in downtown Toronto.
