It was the summer of 2010. I was entering Menopause. My gut was a mess. I was a mess. Everything I ate made me feel bloated. I was constipated one day fine the next day. I was tired all the time. My mood was no longer stable. I stopped trusting my body. My reaction to food was all over the place. I was always skinny but all of a sudden I started adding some pounds! I went to so many doctors. The most irritating part of it all was my symptoms were dismissed as something trivial!
It finally dawned on me that no one knows my body better than myself. I decided to start listening to my body. I researched, put my science background to work and slowly made changes in my diet and within a few months I was feeling so much better.
In a nutshell, I finally understood the meaning of nourishment. I began to nourish my body physically, emotionally and spiritually.
Today I feel healthy in body, mind and spirit. In fact, I can go as far as to say this is the best I’ve felt in my life. I trust my body because I know I am nourishing it in a holistic way.
This is why I’m passionate about supporting you claim your optimal Health. Your problems and symptoms may be different from the ones I struggled with but the feeling of Vibrant Health and living a life that allows you to participate in all the activities you love like golf, working out at the gym, running, hiking, walking your dog or just fitting into your favorite pair of jeans is universal.
