Hi! I'm Laura McQueen, and I can’t wait to geek out with you on all things health and performance!
I’m a certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP), holding certifications in Applied Kinesiology, and currently working my way through a Sports Nutrition certification with the ISSA (International Sports Sciences Association).
I help my clients improve their health in the areas of:
injury recovery & prevention
I’m also the owner of The Good Repair.
As a former marathoner and triathlete, I’ve experienced the many aches and pains that came from training, hammering out long distance events, and indulging in a poor diet along the way. In that time I also lost my period (which my doctors could not explain), my marathon recovery times doubled, and I was fixated on low fat or no fat in my food choices.
However, in my 30’s I chose to change that.
I sought out healthier nutrition practices for myself, and switched over to a Paleo Diet. It was not easy and it didn’t happen overnight, but it has absolutely changed my life!
The Paleo Diet helped me to kick cravings and eliminate unnecessary sugar that was hiding in my diet. My energy levels increased while inflammation in my body from training decreased. I slept better and I could tell that my hormones were happy. Along with testing for food sensitivities, this way of eating clean, real whole foods created a vibrant, energetic, stronger version of me. It can even do the same for you!
I currently eat a “modified” Paleo Diet due to variations in training, but I always go back to the basic Paleo Diet principles otherwise.
I created The Good Repair as a way to use my personal and clinical experience to help you fine tune your nutrition needs in a healthy and holistic way that supports your performance and recovery (just like I did for myself!). Forget what you know about the food pyramid, because it doesn't even begin to address your bio-individual needs. Together we get to the root cause of your health concerns by looking at a 5 day food journal, areas of stress and stress management, your bedtime routine and sleep set up, reviewing the results of a 300+ sign/symptoms health questionnaire, and creating an agreed upon nutrition plan and supplement protocol that will have you feeling better than ever in no time. From there I coach you along to make long lasting, healthy habits that support your training, your recovery, and your future.
