Hi, I'm Sara B Groton, and I'm so happy you're here! Allow me to tell you a bit more about myself.
After discovering that the root of my chronic digestive and immune system ailments, as well as my ongoing anxiety and depression, stemmed from a severe food intolerance, I became passionate about studying nutrition. My entire life changed so drastically for the better from making some small adjustments in my diet, and I knew from that day on that I wanted to spend my life helping others discover the root of their own health struggles – and overcome them! I began studying holistic nutrition at Bauman College in Berkeley, CA in 2014 and received my certification as a Holistic Nutrition Consultant in March of 2016.
As my studies and my work with clients evolved, I came to realize on a deeper level that while nutrition is the foundation, overall health and happiness is incredibly holistic. The mind, body, heart and spirit are truly all connected. If you are struggling with something emotionally (stress, anger, past trauma), your body will respond accordingly, presenting those emotions as physical distress. In order to truly heal, we need to find nourishment and balance in all areas of life.
I dove further into this concept by studying at the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, where I learned new tools to help my clients overcome some of the mental and emotional barriers they encounter on the path to a healthier self.
My approach with clients is compassionate, accessible, and attainable. Whether your goal is related to weight loss, body image, stress, digestion, or any other concern – physically, mentally, emotionally, or spiritually – I want to be by your side to help you get there. Let’s begin your journey to Bee Balanced!
P.S. Why the bee?
Bees are "my thing" :) Named after my grandmother, Beatrice, my family has always called me Sara B. But more than that, bees are amazing nutritional creatures! They are responsible for pollinating over 100 of our crops, and bee pollen is THE richest source of vitamins in a single food and contains more amino acids (protein) than any other plant or animal source. Wow, go bees!
