I didn't arrive here easily, though.
For years, I felt helpless inside my own body. Even as I was learning how to integrate more holistic and "crunchy" habits into my life. I was still struggling daily to live a balanced life. One thing I've learned is that I have to be intentional, even protective, about taking care of me and that means taking care of my body—the temple of God.
However, I don’t have access to nature the way God intended. I don’t enjoy the pure mountain air or spring water. I don’t have a garden that produces fresh food for me daily. I’m a city girl and having grown up near a dump surrounded by pollution, my toxic load is great. It put me at a higher risk for dis-ease.
But I’m fighting back.
My interest in health, nutrition and wellness grew out of my personal desire to experience optimal health.
I was sick a lot as a kid, almost always tired. The doctor told my mother every test showed I was fine--- it was all in my head— I believed him. But years later, after becoming so fatigued that I could not get out of bed, a friend convinced me to see a nutrition doctor. After one test, he explained that my problem was easy to fix and sent me home, not with any meds, but with a holistic diet. He told me if I did not make lifestyle changes, I would be diabetic by the time I was 30 or 40. Diabetes runs in my family and so does heart disease. I thank God for what I learned because now that I’m in my 60s, I have neither diabetes or heart disease. In fact, after making the recommended dietary adjustments, I felt better in two weeks. And after 5 months, I felt better than I had my entire life. Thus, began my journey to discover nature’s design for wellness.
One of the biggest milestones of my wellness journey was when a friend asked me to try a natural way to address my respiratory issues. At the time, I thought she was a little weird and it went against everything I'd learned in college. But it worked. In minutes I felt relief. That was over 20 years ago and I've continued to learn simple, effective ways to support my health and avoid toxins that sabotage my well-being. If you're ready to make this the best season of your life and want solutions to the health challenges that threaten your vibrancy, you've come to the right place.
