Joan Kent

I have a PhD in psychoactive nutrition, how foods affect brain chemistry. By using ordinary foods to change brain chemistry and hormones, I help my clients flip their moods, transform their health, boost their energy, stay in recovery from alcohol or drugs while feeling great, and defeat sugar addiction, if necessary. My goal is to help my clients feel better, look better, stop mood swings, and regain control of their eating.

My unique approach has helped to resolve resistant health issues for many clients and remove the mystery around troublesome eating behaviors.

Simone de Beauvoir wrote, "Confidence in the body is confidence in the self." That quotation has become my professional mission. I love to help clients increase confidence in their bodies and restore trust and confidence in the body and the self. That is true empowerment.

I specialize in diabetes, metabolic syndrome, sugar addiction, cravings, binge eating, mood issues, inflammation, and fueling for athletics without sugar.
