Thank you for visiting Compass Rose Nutrition and Wellness.
I am glad you found your way here.
My name is Gaylene Gomez, and I am a graduate of CSNN - Canadian School of Natural Nutrition, and a member of CANNP- Canadian Association of Natural Nutrional Practioners. I have a special interest in womens digestive concerns and am here to help you feel better!
I live in Alberta, Canada with my husband. And after travelling many parts of the world, we have settled down in a rural area and live in a cozy cottage by a lake. The peace and tranquility is good for the soul, but health and good digestion need more than just peace and tranquility.
I'll tell you more about me later, but now on to you.
Do you have stomach pains, aches, bloating, constipation, indigestion?
How about wear stretchy pants when you go out for dinner? Does eating with a group of friends sound stressful? Are you frustrated at meal time finding something that 'doesn't bother your tummy?' Well, friends, keep reading.
My personal interest in health, or mostly what is coined “alternative health”, goes back to my years as a very active teenager, involved in a variety of team sports. I spent lots of time training, or on the road; and not eating or sleeping very regularly. A few injuries led me to my first career as a Registered Massage Therapist.
My desire to help others was clear from a very young age, so massage was a great fit for me. This led me on a path of helping others and finding myself. As I grew in my career, so did my interest in overall health and wellbeing.
As a child, dinner time was often meat, potatoes and a vegetable, and even though this was a rather healthy approach, it wasn’t what my body needed. Even with eating regular, healthy meals and very few candies or treats, I never reached a point where my body was thriving, and in fact, I developed digestive concerns that were aggravated by those food choices.
I eventually connected all the dots, most of my ailments are tied to my diet. This is when it became clear that I needed a new nutritional approach. My own quest to improve my health and wellbeing put me on a path towards Holistic Nutrition. It has helped me find options that have worked for me and have improved my health. I know I can also help others. I want to help guide people towards better health through natural alternatives, and healthy eating.
Optimal Nutrition is an important goal to strive for. I want to help you find your path, and achieve your goals.
Thank you for letting me be a part of your journey.
