My name is Kylie Walker, and I am a certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP). I am passionate about holistic nutrition and the connection between food and health. I serve in-person clients in the Greater Pittsburgh area as well as those all over the world via telephone or video conference.
My mission is to reconnect women with healing foods and vibrant health through holistic nutrition. My foundational holistic approach focuses on the importance of properly prepared, nutrient-dense, whole foods that are delicious, nourish our bodies, and restore good health.
I help women maximize their hormonal health through nutritional therapy by individually formulating nutritional, supplement, and lifestyle recommendations based on bio-individual needs using unique evaluation procedures. I also offer RESTART, an empowering program for small groups that combines nutritional education, a sugar detox, and group support to help boost energy, reduce inflammation and get rid of sugar and carb cravings.
Whether it’s through individual nutritional therapy or group classes, my overarching goal is to help women heal from the inside out with real food nutrition and a balanced lifestyle.
Our society’s increasing health issues have been shown to be a direct result of the foods we eat, the toxins we are exposed to and the stress we endure. With about half of the American population battling at least one chronic health condition, there is no denying that society is dealing with a major health crisis…
While genetics may predispose some people more than others, our genes do not guarantee we will or will not get a disease. Our lifestyle choices are the factors that turn on these genes. This means that most diseases are brought on, and can often be reversed, by the choices we make in the foods we eat and by how we choose to think, feel, and live our lives.
Over the last century our innate wisdom has been lost among the advancements in food science, medicine, technology, and an ever-growing “Go-go-go” mentality. We are no longer truly nourishing ourselves with food and opting for pre-packaged and processed foods that cause us more harm than we could have ever imagined. By honoring our ancestral wisdom, women can truly heal themselves by reconnecting with real, whole, nutrient-dense foods and by eating the way nature intended.
I live in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with my husband, Jonathan, and our two Goldendoodles, Gracie and Mya. I work full-time for Carnegie Mellon University and practice nutritional therapy part-time though it is my true passion. Balancing a full-time job, part-time commitments, and a healthy lifestyle can be challenging. Eating fresh, real foods on a daily basis is how I find harmony in a hectic life. My own health battles motivated my deeper study of nutrition and working to improve my own health and relationship with food has inspired me to help others through holistic nutrition.
If I am not working or cooking, you can probably find me spending quality time with my wonderful family and friends. I enjoy boating, fishing, hiking, biking, camping, as well as dedicating plenty of time to recharging. Staying active is important, but rest and relaxation is just as valuable. A little R&R can go a long way, and for me it’s about finding the right balance.
