Sage Heart Nutrition/Silvia Graber
Salt Spring Island Nutritionist
Welcome! My name is Silvia, and I am a Registered Holistic Nutritionist. I have been a practitioner of natural health and healing for as long as I can remember. It began over 20 years ago, when as a teen, I decided to become a vegetarian, and furiously studied all aspects of nutrition, diet, and meal planning, as my mother refused to cook for me! Much of my determination for better health comes from a period in my early life where i struggled with health and emotional issues. In my journey to wellness, I learned much about myself and what fuels un-wellness in so many of us. Subsequently, I found I wanted to help others in their health struggles, by educating them and supporting them as much as I was able. From that time on, natural nutrition and health has become a passion of mine. Mainly self-taught, a few years ago I made the decision to acquire accreditation , so that I could have the ability to teach others more authentically. I specialize in mental health and digestive wellness, and in educating you to understand the connection between the two in getting to your root cause. I also offer assistance with various other health concerns including weight management and blood sugar imbalances.In addition to my nutrition training, I am certified as an Energy Practitioner and Therapeutic Touch Practitioner. While my main practice is in Nutritional Consulting, I do offer these modalities as a supplement to Nutritional Consulting. Please contact me for further information if this of interest to you.I personally incorporate and study different wellness modalities in my daily life, such as herbal Medicine, meditation, and Yoga. I love spending time in nature, especially going on long hikes, and running most mornings. I am especially obsessed these days with reading and researching all aspects of nutrition and wellness, with a good fiction book thrown in there at times for some balance! I currently live in Saltspring Island, BC, but am available for long-distance mentorship if needed. My goal is to help you take charge of your health and wellness, and for me, that means, helping you to be self-empowered , not feel like a victim. I honestly believe your body has the ability to re-balance itself, but it is up to us to give it the proper tools to do so. I hope to assist you on your journey to wellness. Best wishes,SilviaI work with all kinds of diets and preferences; individualized programs are based on your needs HOURS:Sun/Mon/Tues 12pm-5pm.

Pantry Raid: I recommend this clean-up session if you are in the beginning stages of changing your diet and lifestyle and need a little motivation to begin your journey.

Menu Plans *Note regarding Menu Plans Many people request menu plans solely,to help them better formulate a plan as to what to eat on a daily basis. While this is a good intention, I do feel that in order for me to formulate a good menu plan for you according to YOUR specific needs and health concerns, It would be in your best interest that I have a more extensive health history, including symptoms and concerns, which is covered in the initial consultation. With that in mind, if you choose the menu plan option, you will receive a 5-day plan, combined with healthy recipes honoring your main health interests, and dietary preferences. * Adjustments to your daily food choices will be made, so flexibility in this area is an asset and makes my job to assist you much easier.
