The Reframe Lifestyle is a health and nutrition program focused on prevention and a nutritional intervention, created by Shawna Bonaby and Kindra Davison of Reframe Wellness, New York. It begins with a new approach to nutrition and how to use it to enhance our body’s natural biology.
The health framework using Prevention, Nutrition, Biology and Lifestyle
At Reframe Wellness, we are preventative and functional nutrition consultants, and our purpose is to empower everyone to make the right nutrition choices to positively influence their health, from the inside out. Your body is smart. With body biology, personal awareness, and connections, we’ve created a framework that allows you to adapt your lifestyle choices as needed to support your continued health. We believe that sustainable long-term health should be accessible to everyone.
The ‘inside’ scoop on getting healthy
Most wellness programs put an emphasis on following surface-level rules like “eat healthier”, “exercise more”, “get your annual checkup”. These are easy steps to comply with, but research has shown that they don’t result in any prevention whatsoever. People suffering with chronic conditions are also often advised to “lose weight” as though that would be easy to do if it had just ever occurred to them before. We know nobody wants to be sick. This kind of halfhearted advice is useless and stigmatizing.
Be your own barometer of health – listen to your body
We change the paradigm by encouraging awareness of more personal health measures, such as energy levels, sleep improvements, or frequency of food cravings. The focus is not on working harder or trying to trick people into doing what we think they should do, but on changes in nutritional understanding and true a-ha moments that lead to lifelong behavioral adjustments that improve long-term health outcomes.
We don’t want to just tell you what you should do. We want to help change the way you think about your health and any symptoms you may have. The health state that we each experience is not random. We are not just unlucky enough to have deteriorating health or chronic symptoms. All symptoms are a logical series of events within your body. In fact, your symptoms are actually the last step in this logical series of events.
Climb the ladder of health one step at a time
We have created a simple visual tool that we call The Ladder of Chronic Health Symptoms to show exactly how this process works. When we understand what the steps are that lead to the symptoms we experience, then we can stop the progression before it happens. Instead of being reactive, we can be proactive.
