Healthy Mama, Happy Life
Wellness for you and your Family

Home: Welcome

A Healthy Mom is a Happy Life!

Hello and Welcome!

I’m Denise Forte, a Registered Holistic Nutritionist. I am mother of two. I live and work in Burlington, Ontario. My passion is to provide nutrition guidance to mama's, both pre and post baby, while also supporting the overall wellness of the family as a whole. 

My health and wellness journey began over a decade ago. After years of constant discomfort, two children, and health struggles of my own; I not only healed my body; but by doing so developed a passion to help others live healthier and feel better.

I have over 6 years experience working in the Health & Nutrition Industry. I am a 2018 Graduate from Edison Institute with a Diploma in Holistic Nutrition. I’m also registered member with The Canadian Association of Natural Nutrition Practitioners.

​My ultimate goal is to achieve a healthy, happy, stress free life for you that is deeply rooted in finding the underlying cause, healing the gut, and creating optimal wellness for you and your family.

The Nutrition Mama Approach

As a Natural Nutrition Clinical Practitioner my goal is to address the root cause, heal the body, improve digestion, and create an overall better quality of life for you and your family. As a mom, we often put ourselves last; its time to live healthier and be happier.

Through comprehensive and individualized nutrition sessions, each client and/or family receives a personalized plan that is designed to navigate a better quality of life in order to target health goals and reach optimal wellness

After all, a healthy mama is a happy life!

What clients are saying...

“Denise was wonderful to work with!  She is knowledgeable and her protocols are easy to follow.  I had tried a TON of different supplements and diets to ease my gut issues, but she helped me figure out the root cause with her testing.  Within 2 months, my symptoms got significantly better and I have an understanding of how to manage my bloat/reflux.  She is great at communicating and easy to talk to.  I highly recommend working with Denise for gut health, and wish I did it sooner.  Thank you!"

"I started working with Denise early 2021 for my ulcerative colitis. Right from our first phone call she was kind, understanding and helpful. She instantly put me at ease by validating my concerns and helped to ease my anxiety by answering all my questions. The plan that Denise created for me was collaborative and I felt really integrated and addressed the issues I was experiencing. Her knowledge surrounding the issues I was experiencing helped me gain a better grasp on not only why I was experiencing gut issues but also taught me that it was possible to manage and live with Ulcerative Colitis. She gave me hope and helped me get back a sense of control over my well-being."
