The Narrative Health Program is rooted in the practice of Holistic Nutrition, where body, mind & spirit are addressed as an integrated system.  The program includes an anti-inflammatory, elimination & reintroduction protocol combined with lifestyle modifications and mindset techniques. The program is based on the 4 ~ R principle.  It is designed to provide people living with chronic conditions with the knowledge, skills and self-confidence to improve their health.

 

R - Remove 

R - Replace

R - Reintroduce

R - Rebalance

The program begins with filling in forms, which will be e-mailed to you. These include a full intake form, a 3-Day journal & consent form.  We will then meet once a week for 6 weeks for guidance through the program.  You will receive a personalised nutritional protocol & lifestyle modification recommendations regarding sleep, stress, movement & mindset.  We will also work on self ~ inquiry through Narrative Mapping (see below) & self ~ compassion as well as everyday techniques to manage anxiety & overwhelm. Weeks 2 ~ 5 include educational modules that include a mini-lecture with handouts.

What is Narrative Mapping?   

 

Narrative Mapping is a technique I developed inspired by my training in Narrative Therapy with Stephan Madigan at the Vancouver School of Narrative Therapy.  It is a practical written activity that journals your perception of your health journey.  We look at the past, present and future of your journey in a creative and practical way, as a visual tool for recovery.
