The name of Alexandra's Holistic Nutrition & Lifestyle Practice, Allume Wellness, is derived from the French word allumer, which means "to light up". When we feel our best, we are vibrant, glowing, and alight. Alexandra believes that what we put into our bodies and how we live our lives determines how easily we keep this inner spark aglow. Backed by her extensive science education and Master's degree in Human Nutrition & Functional Medicine, she guides her clients to live well through the cultivation of intuitive, whole-food, and plant-focused eating – all with an emphasis on doing so with joy. She believes in helping the body heal itself from the inside-out, addressing root causes of dis-ease and adapting what we eat and how we live to restore balance in the spiritual, emotional, and physical body. Her wellness plans focus on supporting the gut with nutritious and delicious foods, in addition to simple lifestyle shifts. In healing the gut and replacing habits or beliefs that are no longer serving us, we can address issues such as extra weight, digestive discomforts, hormonal imbalance, acne, and low energy. Alexandra's individualized eating and lifestyle plans along with her honest, loving support empower her clients to shift their habits for lifelong betterment.
