Just a few of our happy places in life

Hanging out together

Creating ways to Serve You!

Our Daughters Rock!

It's our happy place, and we are never more at peace than when we are walking barefoot in the sand and listening to the waves of the ocean. It's a time of healing, reflection, de-stressing, and being in GOD's awesomeness. Oh yeah, and hopefully getting some good Vitamin D therapy.

We have been together for 40 years, Holy Cow! When we met, Michael was a dishwasher and Isabel a waitress in a restaurant in Boulder, Colorado. BOOM, love at first sight!!! From those humble beginnings to Medical Doctor and Culinary Nutrition Expert, that was the plan, haha. We truly love being together doing just about anything, ask our kids.  

We love being with our Daughters (Nikki and Haley-on far right) doing life. We moved to New Zealand from the USA as a family in 2000. These awesome women have travelled the globe seeking adventures, on their own dime. Mum and dad are very proud of these loving, passionate, and intelligent human beings, we get to call "Our Daughters."

This is honestly our Jam. Michael and I love to serve your healthy desires. We get you, as our health has had heaps of bad times. From obesity to diabetes, to depression, we have had to reverse these trends in our health. So, we understand the yuckiness you may be experiencing. We look forward to impacting and inspiring the life of you & your loved ones.

Michael offers practical, everyday, natural cooking skills as well as a deeper exploration into the therapeutic properties of the foods we eat and how we prepare them. He uses food as medicine, to help you live your Optimal Health, not just normal health! He views nutrition as "Nutritional Psychology" to change our thoughts about food and how food works in our body systems. Michael is a Functional Nutrition Chef that spends time with his clients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. In this way, functional nutrition supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual. 

What is a Culinary Nutrition Expert?

FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE is the future of conventional medicine available now. It seeks to identify and address the root causes of disease, and views the body as one integrated system, not a collection of independent organs divided up by medical specialties. It treats the whole system, not just the symptoms.
 
Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. It is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms.

Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement, Nutrition, Food Sensitivities, Gut challenges like bloating, constipation, diarrhoea, reflux and heartburn, Laughter health > laughter is the best medicine, Premenstrual tension, Menopause, Acne, Cholesterol management, Reducing high blood pressure, Detoxification, Fat loss, especially when exercise and diet have had no real benefit.
