My name is Irene Liu and I am a Certified Holistic Nutritionist and Nutrition Coach. My compassionate nature, with a soul purpose of helping people, and a need to balance work and health, has directed my path into the wonderful world of nutrition.
Being a young professional myself, I struggle with trying to eat healthy. When I first discovered how food was manufactured to last longer and look good, all for company profit, I felt deceived by the food industry and took it personally. When I was working in a downtown office, it was challenging to know what I could eat that wouldn’t be harmful to my health. I soon realized I was not enjoying food the same way I used to and it felt like food was the enemy, rather then something that nourished my body.
This was one of the milestones that inspired my commitment to natural health. I wanted to gain a deeper knowledge about the real connection between our food and body. This inspired me to make a life changing career shift. I left the corporate world for holistic nutrition.
I understand that being a young professional in this fast paced lifestyle often results in us losing sense of a healthy balance. We spend most of our time and livelihood at work. Sometimes eating healthy or making time to workout is not a priority since our main focus is on the amount of work we have to do, how we are going to do it, and our brutal deadlines. It’s as if we are conditioned in this modern lifestyle to forget that we have the freedom to choose our health first. By practicing wellness however, we begin to notice positive changes that include being more productive in our personal lives and at work. On top of that we feel awesome too!
I help young professionals take charge of their health through education and individualized health regimes that empower them to restore balance back into their life. I understand the time demands that my clients face and I am specifically focused on helping them find solutions that work for them. Since completing my education at the Institute of Holistic Nutrition and graduating with Honors, I am excited to share the information I have learned.
I am really looking forward to working together to provide education and motivation that will help empower you to achieve your health goals. I am here to help. Together we can make balance a reality.
