Comprehensive protocols include nutrition practices known to be effective plus other modalities suitable to the client.  I develop protocols that include “practice pearls” from what I read, combined with my own foundation of knowledge & experience.  To support your TOTAL approach to wellness, I have included books that address a variety of healing concepts. Some of these books are more of a journey through what others have experimented with on their personal path to healing.  These are examples of using a total approach – starting with a foundation of nourishing foods and adding additional self-care interventions to construct a comprehensive personalized wellness plan.  While I am not in total agreement with all of the recommendations presented, some of the books such as Brain Maker present an enormous amount of relevant research.
