I’m not exaggerating when I say this but I wake up in the morning with so much energy I (almost) don’t even know what to do with it.
Prior to becoming a Certified Integrative Nutrition and Wellness Coach, that wasn’t always the case. In fact for over twenty years, I lived with chronic arthritis, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, asthma and general chronic exhaustion. I was also diagnosed with osteoporosis in my early thirties despite drinking and eating a lot of dairy all my life.
Over the course of the years, I consulted many doctors to try to get on top of the pain and some medications would work for a period of time before losing their effectiveness as well as causing side effects elsewhere. I was taking large amounts of pain killers each day just to be able to function. However, I struggled through each day and had resigned myself to living with the chronic pain and had accepted that this feeling of being unwell was just what I had to live with.
Due to a major life catalyst, I undertook a long path of spiritual awakening and worked with some of the best spiritual teachers in the world. Dr Wayne Dyer was particularly pivotal in the changes that I made and today, he continues to be a constant inspiration in my life. I also undertook many personal development courses with incredible teachers and leaders such as Dr Deepak Chopra, Dr Eben Alexander, Dr Bruce Lipton, Anita Moorjani, Carolyn Myss, Nick Otter, Cheryl Richardson, and many others and this eventually led me to examine the way I was living my life. Step by step, I started to really examine different aspects of my life with a strong focus on self-care and nutrition. I had believed that I had always eaten well as I did not like junk food but the reality was, that it was the food that I was eating that was making me sick and after undertaking a spiritual and physical detox, I started to feel well for the first-time in my adult life.
All of the life-long medical problems disappeared and I began to enjoy vibrant health and vitality. I stopped taking all medication and my body repaired itself in a way that I could never have dreamed was possible. A great added bonus, was that my skin glowed and my hair became extra healthy because my body was repairing itself at a cellular level. My bones have also dramatically increased in density through making changes in my diet (something doctors told me could only be done through medication, all of which had serious side affects).
It was an “ah hah” moment where I realized that there is such a strong link between nutrition and wellness and that led me to undertake studies in nutrition as well as to read widely on the topic. I realized that there is too much emphasis on sick care and not wellness care and prevention of illness (something that is so easy to achieve with good nutrition). My previous career as a teacher compliments the work that I now do as a Certified Integrative Nutrition and Wellness Coach.
This led me to create my business My Kitchen Heals where the Mission Statement is simply that healing begins with the food in our kitchen pantry and refrigerator.
