Do you want to live or do you want to thrive? This was the question I asked myself so many times!
My interest in a healthy lifestyle started about 16 years ago. But it really took a turn about four years ago when I lost my beautiful mother, my best friend, to cancer. I wanted to know why people are getting sick so much more than ever? What is causing it? What are we missing? What are we not doing right?
I had many health issues growing up. I was on a prescription antibiotic for seven years since my birth. At one point in my life, I was more than 40 pounds overweight. It took me years of trial and error, but thankfully it has been more than 15 years that I am at my healthy weight.
I know what it feels to be hopeless. When you are not feeling well and no one can give you any answers, and you can’t enjoy your life to the fullest, it stinks!
People often ask me what do I eat, what do I do to keep my weight in balance and stay healthy.
I say, it doesn’t really matter, because in reality what had worked for me, might not work for another person. That’s BIOINDIVIDUALITY. The secret is to discover what works for that unique body.
Becoming educated in the field of functional medicine gave me an opportunity to really dive deep in understanding how all our body parts, glands, organs, hormones work together. There are no islands. Everything is interconnected. No one way of eating or lifestyle works for everyone.
My passion is helping people to find what works for them, identify the triggers that are in their way for maximum wellness, and help them to change it at the pace that feels comfortable for them.
We are so used to popping a pill to numb our pain, without realizing that the body is sending us signals that it needs our attention. By ignoring those symptoms, we are only promoting the diagnoses of some sort of ailment or disease in the long run.
It doesn’t have to be that way. I coach people to learn to listen to their bodies and address these symptoms by getting to the true root cause of the problem.
How do we do that?
Maximize what their unique body needs (food, sleep, raw materials your body needs to function optimally, oxygen, water).
Minimize what their unique body struggles with (toxins, infections, allergens, stress, trauma, limiting beliefs, fear, negative expectations).
Prioritize and create an environment for healing for this unique person (sleep, rest, laughter, stress reduction, exercise, stretching, breathing, meaningful relationships).
My goal is to Educate, Inspire, and Empower people to own their wellness! True health starts with us when we decide to be well!
