About

ALLEGRA KING,
Nutritional Therapist

We live in a world where chronic illness is on the rise and there’s a massive amount of misinformation to sift through when embarking on a path to recovery…

 

This is where I come in.

I am a registered holistic nutritionist specializing in digestive health and thyroid function and I am passionate about uncovering the root cause of any dis-ease.

This passion enables me to empower clients who struggle with debilitating chronic conditions, including autoimmunity, hypothyroidism, Lyme disease, digestive disorders, allergies, as well as the myriad of symptoms that fall under the Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS™) category.

After graduating from the Canadian School of Natural Nutriton (CSNN) I had the incredible opportunity to train directly under Dr. Natasha Cambell-McBride, founder of GAPS™ and became a certified GAPS™ therapist.

Further, I am inspired by the works of  pioneering endocrinologists Dr. Hans Selye, Dr Broda Barnes and Dr. Ray Peat. Their work has changed how I look at health and has given me great understanding of stress and the role it plays in all disease, of hormonal health, including stress hormones and the protective steroid hormones and of thyroid function and how it relates to wellbeing.

I am a certified yoga instructor and use yoga to help people in therapeutic ways with a focus on mindfulness practice and breathing techniques to reduce stress and increase systemic carbon dioxide. Yoga has given me a sense of connectedness to myself and my community and has given me the ability to help other people realize their full potential.

I am here to help you uncover your body’s natural ability to heal.

I create bio-individually based protocols including diet, lifestyle and supplements if needed. I can provide you with the foundation necessary for recovery!
