Passion for Intestinal Health Danielle believes strongly in the whole person approach to wellness, including mind, body and spirit, with healthy food at center stage. She understands that overall health begins with the gut; that both dis-ease and health are dictated by the state of our individual microbiomes. Certain foods we eat, medications we take and the lifestyles we lead, contribute to the balance of our ”good” and “bad” bacteria in our intestines. Danielle encourages her clients to eat “real” food, live physically active, mindful lives in toxic-free environments to assist in developing and maintaining a healthy intestinal bacteria balance. Danielle equates nutrition counseling to detective work. Her greatest passion is helping individuals reclaim their health by digging deeply to find the “root” of their health issues. Her role at DrJockers.com involves working with patients through interpreting their lab work, making personalized recommendations based on the lab findings and providing individualized coaching to help clients restore their bodies back to optimal health.
