I usually try to stick to the food here, but today I want to share my story with you and explain how I ended up as a health coach and food blogger. You see, there comes a time for all of us when something hits and we realize if I keep eating, drinking, partying, stressing, worrying… fill in the blank (or all of the above) it’s not gonna be pretty. That time came for me at a much younger age than most – It started when I was 22 with severe joint pain and swelling. As time went on things got worse and then finally, that something hit me and I realized things had to change.
My body had been trying to tell me this all along but I just kept turning up the noise and tuning it out. Until I couldn’t ignore it anymore.
So, I started to listen. And I began a journey of discovering exactly what it needed to heal and recover from the years of wear and tear that ended up creating a perfect storm for my immune system to go haywire. I read up on natural, holistic approaches and one of the first books I read was Dr. Andrew Weil’s Spontaneous Healing. In it he explains the body has an innate ability to heal itself when given what it needs.
That’s when it clicked. And I started making changes. It didn’t happen overnight. At this point my freezer was full of Lean Cuisines (I had a long way to go!). There were ups and downs, I resisted, I even threw in the towel a few times. But that voice would come back…
Eventually I learned how to tune into it and really listen. This was the key that changed everything.
For the first time in my life, I understood that what I ate directly affected how I felt.
It was food that got me back to 100% and feeling like myself again. I’m still on this journey – and always will be. I have days when I feel great and days that are not so great. But I’m in control; I have the power over my well being. And that is… well, everything!
In the middle of all of this I got my health coaching certification and started helping other people achieve their own health goals such as losing weight, having more energy, learning to cook, etc. I can’t tell you how incredible it is to be able to help others make their own health goals happen.
OK, so I’ve told you my story, now I want to hear yours…
If pain or discomfort is keeping you from doing the things you enjoy…
If you’ve ever thought, “If only I felt better, I would…”
If you think your body might be trying to tell you something too…
Let me help you tune in, find some relief and get back to feeling like the real you again.
I’m offering a new 90 day intensive program designed to help those struggling with chronic pain learn how to use food as medicine so you can feel like yourself again and live life to the fullest. It’s my No Pain, Everything to Gain Program: 90 Days to the Real You.
In this transformational program, you’ll look at food in an entirely new way. We go beyond diet and work on making shifts so you naturally crave good-for-you foods that make you feel vibrant and healthy. You’ll experiment with foods to figure out which ones support you and which ones may be causing you more harm than good. Additionally, you’ll learn strategies for balancing all the other elements in your life that can lead to pain and disease such as stress and emotional well being. Through this program, you can begin to heal from your pain and get back to feeling good in your body and living life on your terms.
The first step is a free 30 minute No Pain, Everything to Gain Strategy Session.
In this session we’ll talk about your health concerns, what it is you want to achieve and what might be standing in your way. And we’ll discuss how we can work together to get to where it is you want to be.
I have a limited number of strategy sessions available for this program and am offering three sessions this week. If you’re interested or curious, click here to book your free session.
I’ve learned a lot trying just about everything under the sun to feel better and help myself heal. It’s added up to a lot of time, money, ups, downs and runarounds but it’s all been worth it to know my body and to be able to give it what it needs to thrive.
My goal is for others to benefit from my trials, errors and successes so you can discover a simpler, more direct path to healing. I’m here to support you so you can follow through like you never have before and finally get your life back.
Are you ready to feel like the real you again?
