We are all on our own health journey. I never worried about my health or what I ate until about 12 years ago, married with 2 children ...then it hit, the boiling point, the reaching the threshold...the chronic fatigue, sore joints, headaches, HUGE digestive issues, body aches, sinus issues, very slow recovery time, I couldn't even keep foods down or in. I had lost 20 pounds. I was miserable! And scared!
I was desperate to find out what was wrong!
The doctors couldn't figure out what was going on. An Ionic Foot detox indicated candidia.
And so began my health journey, whether I liked it or not....
It began with adding CBD (Certified CBD Coach, 2019), and I started a daily food journal and slowly reintroduced foods. AND...
No more antibiotics! No more guessing with pharma drugs! No more energy drinks! No more smoking! No more beer!
Today, I am 25 lbs overweight. (Update: I've lost 10 lbs, so far) I feel great and have not reverted to the above restrictions, but have never been able to lose the weight, despite the diet and lifestyle change. Some home testing revealed that I may have thyroid issues. This could have been festering for years or been the issue the whole time?? Autoimmune disease? A gut disease?
I refuse to go to the doctor unless it is unavoidable.... I knew I was on my own. I began more research....This year I ended up completing the training to become a CFNC (Certified Functional Nutrition Consultant) at Functional Nutrition Lab. This training has been fascinating and eye opening. I want to share what I have learned with everyone!
I have always wanted what I do to have meaning and to empower people to learn more about their bodies and how to do simple swaps and lifestyle changes that can help them feel better or get out of pain. I am in my own journey, as well. But now I have gained the knowledge, the mindset and the tools to look past the symptoms and to find out what is really going on in there. It takes time and a little detective work. Sorry, there is no magic pill.
My small business began from my home in 2017. I later moved to a brick and mortar business. I am currently working toward more online work, utilizing a co-working space and having flexibility in meeting with clients.
With years of researching and trying many different products, I will only offer you natural, trusted and tested products, most are straight from the farm or private practitioner source.
My goal is to be your guide/resource , with a very holistic approach. Sharing my knowledge and tools. I want to be a part of your health journey, answering your questions, cheering you on and searching for the “root cause” and not just putting a band-aid over the symptoms.
This has become my passion. There were many times I wanted to just give up, now I feel like God has my hand and this is my purpose!
