Joeline Parsons RHN, C.C.Ir.

Co-Owner of KURE & Registered Holistic Nutritionist, Certified Clinical Iridologist.

   As a nutrition expert, author and mom Joeline knows just how important healthy eating is and how challenging that can be in ‘real-life’. As a self-confessed foodie who loves cooking, Joeline often fills her home with a feast of dining. She pursues good health by maintaining a whole food diet, and loves gym training, running, yoga, and walking her two Labrador retrievers.

   Joeline sought a career in which she could provide value to both people and the environment. She began her journey by graduating from Fitness and Health promotion which lead her to one on one personal training, group fitness classes as well as competing in fitness competitions herself. Her strong belief in the healing power of a whole foods based diet and healthy living led her to the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition, where she obtained her Registered Holistic Nutritionist designation. Joeline then continued to extend her knowledge in holistic health by graduating from the Canadian Institute of Iridology.

   Taking the time to learn whole foods and the basics of nutritional science has been the single best investment in my own health and the health of my family. Not to mention, because of this knowledge I have significantly decreased my impact on the environment and have learned many techniques to maintain a healthy home.

   Joeline believes moderation is key; its simple extremes don’t work. There is a lot of power in making small changes to bring about improved health.
