hen I was 8, my mother put me on my first diet. At 16 I was a compulsive overeater and bulimic. While in college I began to have severe wrist pains. Dr’s called it Carpel Tunnel, and there was talk of surgery.
As I investigated more, I found that people who went through the surgery didn’t necessarily get relief from this pain. An art teacher led me to an acupuncturist who gave me a list of foods to avoid.
I took his suggestions, got rid of the artificial foods and drinks and to my delight and surprise, the pain and inflammation disappeared! This began my journey into seeing food as medicine and seeing artificial foods as an inflammation and disease contributor.
Even with that early discovery of relieving pain through nourishing foods, I still put myself through some extreme diets, which contributed to various eating disorders and that roller coaster of weight gain/weight loss/weight gain. I grew up with the message that thin was beautiful and successful and that fat was ugly and lazy. Through my journey, I have worked to release those old beliefs and found that true wellbeing and self-acceptance is the ultimate success and beauty.
My journey has included becoming a Gentle Yoga and Meditation Instructor, Energy Healer and Certified Holistic Health Coach, so that I can share true wellness with others. I am a robust woman and embrace all that I am and release that which I am not. I no longer diet, as I live this very concept that I teach.
We can work together one-on-one or in a group setting. I’ll give you a personal consult to put together a customized approach to healing based on your individual needs. Depending on your interest, we may focus on nutrition, emotional healing techniques, meditation, breath work, movement or a combination to create a whole nurturing program that is as unique as you are.
