about green dot garden

My name is Wendy Simard, a lover of all things outdoors and green. You can imagine then how thrilling it was for me to discover a few years back that I no longer had to suffer from chronic life-long seasonal allergies!

Uncovering several food sensitivities and adrenal fatigue threw a floodlight onto my real problem, which revolved around diet and lifestyle. As I made changes to my diet I saw amazing improvements in my energy levels. But only when I also began to find sustainable ways to reduce my stress did I begin to really feel better.

Being outside, in the garden helps me slow down and reconnect with something bigger than myself. It’s become a powerful metaphor in my life, one that has taught me to honor the process of planting a seed, nurturing it, weeding, and harvesting the vegetable that in turn will nourish my body.

As a holistic health counselor trained at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, and certified through the American Association of Drugless Practitioners, I was taught to have deep respect for each person’s bio-individuality—basically the idea that we are all have different nutritional needs. With help from others, I was able to organically connect the dots on my health journey, and in the process I learned a powerful lesson: there’s always room to grow.

I would love to have the opportunity to help you do the same.
