Carole Hildebrandt FNTP, CGP
When I was diagnosed with breast cancer, one of my first questions was “What could I have done to prevent this from happening in my body?” Being science-minded, I have always known that our body has an innate intelligence, that it is a miraculous instrument designed to heal itself. While researching to discover how I could change my habits and lifestyle to become cancer free, one thing kept shouting out – YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT!
After many years as a classroom teacher, my research and experiences convinced me it was time to leave teaching to pursue a nutrition education program that would support a natural, whole-foods approach to health and wellness. Combining my love of food, cooking, teaching, and a desire to help others stay well, I became a certified Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (FNTP) through the Nutritional Therapy Association and founded Wise Habits Nutritional Therapy.
My mission is to educate and support clients along their voyage to improved health and vibrancy with simple diet and lifestyle changes. Through our work together, I empower clients to sort through the jumble of conflicting and misleading dietary information, learn the importance of a traditional, properly prepared, nutrient-dense whole-foods diet, avoid common toxins in our daily life, and connect to local, sustainable food sources and other community resources.
Working one-on-one with clients, I assess current health, nutrition, weight and energy levels. Through this evaluation process, we begin to peel back the layers looking beyond alleviating your symptoms and working to find the root cause of your health issues. Together we will work to design diet changes for proper nutritional support and develop everyday life adjustments tailored to your individual health and lifestyle needs.
”Working with Wise Habit Nutritional Therapy, you’ll learn to listen to the wisdom of your body, decipher food labels to maneuver yourself toward the healthiest foods in the grocery store and choose healthy personal care products while continuing to explore how best to reach your goals for optimal health.” —Sandee S.
Individual nutrition coaching is available locally in the Portland, Oregon metropolitan area as well as via phone or Skype to serve clients elsewhere around the world. Specializing in GAPS and SCD diets, Gluten-Free and Grain-Free eating and clean Paleo nutrition, I helps clients connect to real, whole-food nutrition for better living. In-home cooking and meal planning sessions, pantry clean-outs, and healthy grocery store tours are also available upon request. I am also available to provide nutrition seminars and wellness workshops to business, school and community groups.
