Rachel Caven – Nutritionist, Clinic Director (She/Her)
Ottawa’s Expert Weight Loss Nutritionist, specializing in healthy and sustainable weight loss, digestive issues, hormonal health, and stress.
Rachel specializes in creating individual eating plans based on your specific needs and goals. Since no two people are exactly the same, no eating plan will be exactly the same. She believes that our bodies were designed to be healthy and that we have an innate ability to heal ourselves. Unfortunately, our toxic environment, stressful lifestyles and lack of quality food are hindering our ability to heal. Canada has one of the most advanced healthcare systems in the world, yet we are plagued with chronic diseases. We are a nation that is overfed but undernourished!
Our advanced society and increased access to information has just made us more confused about what, when, why, and how to eat food. Food needs to return to its original purpose of being delicious, nourishing, health promoting, and enjoyable. It is Rachel’s mission to educate people on how eating well can be easy and improve your health and quality of life.
Rachel studied Bio-Medical Sciences at the University of Guelph, graduating with honours in 2006. In this program, she learned just how complex our bodies are and how many processes are in place to bring the body back to health. She knew with this incredible innate ability to heal, there had to be something missing in our modern medical system. She then studied at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition and became a member of the Canadian Association of Natural Nutritional Practitioners.
Rachel is a sought after speaker for corporate and media events. She is a dynamic and passionate speaker, who uses science and facts mixed with humour and practical advice everyone can use. She appears regularly on Ottawa’s CTV Morning Live and Roger’s Daytime Ottawa and is a Consulting Nutritionist for Chatelaine Magazine- Canada’s Number 1 Magazine. She has spoken for the Department of Justice Canada, the Canadian Revenue Agency, The Running Room, Workplace Safety and Prevention Services Health and Safety Conference 2012 and 2013, Mcmillan Law firm, Stevenson/Trinka Dentistry, The Natural Food Pantry, and for numerous school boards. She has written articles for the Ottawa Sun, Ottawa Citizen, Alive Magazine and Revive Magazine.
