Shanice M

Team Canada

I came to Sync Therapy 3 months after having shoulder surgery from a chronic sports injury. Daryl was instrumental in helping me gain back my mobility and add strength, to help me return to professional sport. Not only does he treat the area where the source of the injury is, but he is meticulous in assessing other areas of deficiencies that may be aiding in pain. He has listened to all my concerns with care and answered all of my questions with an undeniable knowledge base making me feel at ease with my progress and motivated to continue through challenging therapy. Since I have moved to Toronto, Daryl has been in constant contact just to see how I am progressing, and he has provided a tremendous amount of support through the physical and mental battles of re-injury. I would recommend Sync Therapy to anyone who has a sports injury, or those seeking treatment for everyday aches and pains as Daryl goes above and beyond to make sure his clients are healthy both mind and body

Getting hurt is a part of having an active lifestyle – accidents happen. But until I started to see Daryl at Sync Therapy I thought living with these injuries was a part of that lifestyle. Daryl has help me through chronic ankle and knee pain and designed a recovery plan and more importantly an injury prevention plan that fits my lifestyle. I have found his advice, knowledge, and attention to detail second to none. Thanks Daryl and Sync Therapy for all your help!

Daryl is such a wealth of information.. he goes above and beyond every time I see him, and is so easy to talk to and non-judgemental! He does a super solid job at looking at the big picture and understands how interconnected the body’s systems are. I for sure would recommend Sync Therapy to anyone. Plus, a super accommodating schedule makes it easy to get in when you actually need it most

We're Right For You If...

If you have something specific to work on

Do you have a goal or something that you need help with? 

If you don't know what to eat

Food choices today are similar to a rubix cube, it’s complex unless you’re trained in it. We take the fluff out of what foods to eat. 

I want to reduce or get off my medication

We work specifically with your doctor to help you achieve this. We focus on the diet and lifestyle that’s safe for you and your doctor manages your medications.

What We Actually Do

We show you how to get you better, period.

Whether you have a specific reason for change or just want to be healthier, we can show you the way.

Our holsitic nutritionist looks at the whole person and is not solely interested in food. The things that we look at are your readiness to change, your lifestyle, stress levels, and knowledge of health.

It’s here where we find the long lasting change

The more common reasons people like you come and see us are losing weight, “feeling better”, or improving a specific health reason (sleep, heart health, and diabetes for example)

What Is Holistic Nutrition?

Holistic Nutrition is the use of everyday nutrition, eating habits, and lifestyle techniques to improve your health

Pretty simple, right?

The problem is, that medicine can sometimes miss the fact that poor nutrition is one of the major contributors to a wide range of health issues.

Most of us are aware that healthy food has many benefits to our physical and mental health, and our over-all wellbeing. The volume and range of conflicting information in the media and social media is often overwhelming and just straight confusing 

Working with a Registered Holistic Nutritionist (R.H.N. or a C.H.N.C) can show you the necessary dietary and lifestyle changes that are practical to you.  

It can be hard to make a diet change, but given the practical tools for change, you can create lasting results

Why A Holistic Nutritionist

One of the great things about holistic nutrition is the approach is individualized.

We’re not hampered by guidelines, restrictions, and your not put into a box because of your condition.

You’re treated differently and uniquely because we are all unique. 

We focus on creating healthy relationship with food, a strong and healthy digestive system, and work on the reasons for change to create a long-term results.

Food is information for the body and creating a healthy relationship only strengthens this. Counting calories isn’t a way to develop a good relationship with your food, this is why we don’t do it. Developing a healthy relationship with foods allows you the ability to make smarter choices and not to panic when you “treat yourself” with a cookie (or box).

Having a strong digestive system is the basis for health. It’s not “You are what you eat”, it’s “You are what you digest”. The fact is that because you eat a certain food doesn’t mean you’ll digest or use it properly. 

The majority of people know that they need to eat “healthier” but still don’t do it. Working on why you want to change makes that change last. If you’ve tried numerous times or there’s too much information to pick from, we can be an option for you

Did you know that you can improve your productivity by 88% by having a coach on your side? 

An article in Public Management revealed a study where training alone was compared to coaching combined with training. The study showed that training alone increased productivity by 22.4% while training combined with weekly coaching increased productivity by 88%.

” I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 2006. Over the years I was put on many medications to help alleviate some of the pain and symptoms. Needless to say nothing worked. I suffered greatly from dibilitating pain and other symptoms associated with Fibro. I knew Daryl through his mom and reached out for help and help he did. For the past few months, my pain levels have decreased greatly and other symptoms have lessened. Daryl is extremely knowledgable and has a very caring, compassionate nature. He cares about you as an individual. He truely is an angel. I would highly recommend Daryl to anyone who wants to regain their life back.

Thank you so much Daryl “

Major Factors To Improved Health

These are the major factors that go into optimal health. This is what we focus on as holistic nutritionists in Victoria. You don’t have to choose an area, we do all the hard work to give you a simple plan

Gut and Digestive health

Optimal gut health has become a prominent focus in todays health. The links between chronic illness and an imbalanced microbiome keep growing and can't be overlooked. Our gut is critical to our health, this is one of the first things we start with.

Perfect for: Everyone.. this is the basics

Hormones and neurotransmitters

Most of us are living out of harmony with our biological rhythms. Two small but powerful molecules that we depend on to keep us in balance but may be running haywire are hormones and neurotransmitters.
Perfect for: Menopause, if you've ever taken birthcontrol

Energy and oxidative damage

How do we make energy? Why do we lose it and how can we get more. Understanding how to optimize your energy factories and reduce your oxidative stress (similar to rust with metals) can make the world of difference to someone who has trouble with energy levels, anxiety, depression, or affected by stress.
Perfect for: Heart disease, fatigue, Alzheimer’s , etc

Inflammation and immune balance

When your immune system is out of balance, inflammation can run rampant. This is similar to a soldering fire inside you that contributes to disease and even weight gain.
Putting out this fire is a key aspect to our approach

Detoxification

It's more than just drinking one of those "detox tea" (which don't work) Detoxification is the science of how our bodies get rid of waste. If waste builds up, we get sick. The key becomes figuring out how to enhance our body’s capacity to detoxify and get rid of the waste
Perfect for: headaches, sleep problems, skin problems, trouble losing weight, menopause

Environment

You're not limited by your genes anymore, this is the world of "epigenetics". What we put into our mouth and our lifestyle all can change how your genes are "read".Our environment interacts with our genes to either create health or feed disease. Our diets, nutritional status, air, water, amount exercise, your thoughts, and other environmental toxins can all influence our genes and our health.
Perfect for: Autoimmune, chronic disease

Giving you a generic diet plan based on a medical diagnosis or goal is simply not enough to achieve optimal healing.

The one size does NOT fit all, and we strive to provide the highest quality personalized nutrition care to all of our clients.

Have you found yourself frustrated by not getting the direct answers you’re hoping for? Your doctor already has a lot on their plate or you’re getting mixed information from the news ” this is healthy… nope it will kill you now”. 

The answer you will get is “Diet and exercise”… but what do you eat and what’s the right type of exercise for you

This is where we come in! We take the guess work out of what food is good for you.

We want you to succeed.

You’re not going to be put on restrictive diets that you hate or aren’t ready for.  

We can help you implement small changes, little by little, at the pace that’s comfortable for you.

It’s about taking a realistic approach to meeting all your health goals

The ultimate goal is to help you with new habits and lifestyle changes to improve your overall well-being so you don’t need a coach for life.

This is done by effective communication and support, which you will get.

Not only do we focus on your physical health, but on your overall health– including your mental and emotional wellbeing.

Ever wonder why you can’t stick to a new change? This is a huge reason why

Since only 6 percent of people engage in the top five health behaviours, reversing bad habits like smoking and forming new habits like eating well and getting enough sleep are the key to getting your health back on track

We have information overload and this causes us to freeze and take no action at all.

Our plans take the guess work of which foods to eat, how to properly exercise for you body, and what is a great way to reduce stress.

In one study, researchers found that patients who underwent health coaching were better able to control their diabetes, hypertension, and hyperlipidemia up to one year after the fact. 

Having a coach provides you with the tools for longer-term success

It’s tempting to think that we need more information to solve the problem but we have an overabundance of information.

You need action and a plan, this is where we can excel
