Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food – Hippocrates

Holistic nutrition is a natural approach to health that uses evidence-based techniques for diet, lifestyle and detoxification. It takes into consideration health history, emotional state, lifestyle, life stages and current diet habits of an individual. The role of the holistic nutritionist is to determine and address the root cause of a condition, to prevent diseases, promote and maintain good health.

Who we are

Emilie Paradis


Holistic Nutritionist, Health Coach and Personal Trainer

I am a Licensed Holistic Nutritionist and Health Coach having graduated from the NutraPhoria School of Holistic Nutrition. I hold a diploma in Acupuncture from the Ottawa International Academy of Holistic Health and certificates in Personal Training, Insanity Beach-body and Posture evaluation.

My passion for nutrition started when I was looking for ways to improve my health. Struggling with psoriasis and eating disorders bloating, addiction to sugar, acne, low energy…I tried many diets, fat burners, I over exercised....never achieving long term, lasting results making my health condition even worse.

My body and my mind felt older than they were. I felt miserable and living my life like that was no longer an option. That is when I decided to educate myself about the impact of food on the body and on the mind. I also realized how both are so well connected that when one is out of sync with the other, it can really mess you up. Today, I adapt my diet and my lifestyle to my health and my goals.

There is not one right way of eating for everyone. Never compare yourself with others, we are all unique. Food is not an enemy, it should nourish and strengthen our bodies. The right choice of food can help with many health conditions. As a holistic nutritionist, I want to share my knowledge and mentor you to achieve a state of wellness where you can become the best and healthiest version of yourself.

Dany Lapointe


Administrative Manager

 I served 11 years in the Canadian Forces. While I enjoyed serving, I often moved so I left the forces to concentrate on raising my 2 sons. I work as a contractor for the government in Access to Information and Privacy Legislations. Over the years and because of some neglect on my part I gained weight. One day at a colleague’s retirement party, I stood next to 4 beautiful friends for a picture and that’s when I realized how much I had let myself go. At that moment I decided to take back control of my health and my body.

By chance I met Emilie and with her knowledge, support and devotion I lost 50 pounds and have never felt better. Emilie and I became great friends. We started to discuss the idea of going into business together, since I believe in her, in her passion and how she taught me that it is never to late, we finally decided to start InStep and we are excited to serve you. While Emilie is the nutrition and training expert, I take care of the admin and finance side of the business.
