ABOUT YOUR COACH
"My Best Self is Always Unfolding"
Like so many people, I used to think that chronic medical conditions are normal (especially with aging) and best left to be managed primarily by the healthcare system. Today, I know that it's just not true.
In my early adult years I was experiencing ongoing digestive issues as well as other symptoms like eczema, acne, dry scalp, night sweats, dizziness, brain fog, and joint pain flare ups which were all treated as separate issues by separate specialists. As a result of the prescriptive approach of Western medicine, I was literally taking an antibiotic and topical solutions every day of my life for over 10 years. Still, the symptoms rarely subsided. At the time I had no idea the damage I was doing to my gut microbiome and my overall health.
It wasn't until later in life when my child was diagnosed with autism that I encountered a path to wellness using primarily nutritional intervention. This concept inspired my curiosity to seek out alternative ways to manage health and overall well-being. I began to see positive effects for my child almost immediately, and I realized the benefits applied to me too.
Now I've spent over 13 years educating myself around bio-individual needs related to healthy eating and lifestyle habits and self-care. This led me on a path into middle-age that enabled me to feel good about the upcoming chapters.
As I turned 50, I was looking at life through a new empowered lens, feeling young and strong, wiser and better than ever. Now as a certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, I feel even more empowered to expand and expose my knowledge to my clients.
Physical and mental sickness and disease are overtaking our human experience and our healthcare system. It's time we all took the reigns with our own personalized, holistic program.
We all have the ability to tap into this wisdom and emerge as our best self. We should all wake up everyday feeling great. Let me be your guide-on-the-side as you emerge into the new You 2.0!
Each chapter gets more delicious!
