Welcome to One Point Nutrition and Lactation Services

What does “One Point” mean?

In the Japanese martial art Aikido (which I have practiced for over 10 years) it is said that 2-4 inches below our belly button is our “One Point” or our source of energy or “Ki.”  When you focus the mind on this point you become centered in your mind and body. This creates a powerful and calm feeling. This concept is a form of meditation that I practice not only in Aikido, but also in life. This helps me to stay grounded in the body as well as find my strength and calm. This mind-body connection is essential for achieving optimal mental, physical and emotional health. I believe balanced nutrition is the “one point” to overall wellbeing. Therefore, to honor this, I have named my practice One Point Nutrition and Lactation Services.

Carlie Adams RD, LD, IBCLC

My name is Carlie Adams and I am a Registered and Licensed Dietitian (RD, LD) and Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). I am also certified as a National Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) Lifestyle Coach. I believe that prevention through nutrition counseling and education along with healthy lifestyle changes is critical for building healthier communities. Moreover, nutrition counseling and education can reduce the risk and incidence of lifestyle-related chronic diseases. A holistic approach focusing on chronic disease prevention for every family member is essential. Everyone benefits from understanding the importance of good nutrition and healthy lifestyle habits. This includes breastfeeding infants, babies starting solid foods, children, teens, and adults who are at risk of developing a chronic disease or are currently living with one or more chronic diseases. I look forward to helping you and your family live longer, healthier and happier lives.
