Sometimes life throws you a lot of tough punches to get you to where you need to be. That is how it felt for me for a few years. I had a stressful corporate marketing job that was pushing me to be someone I knew I wasn’t. My father had been sick for several years and passed away at the peak of my work stress. After that, I developed Celiac’s disease plus a multitude of other stress-related back/hip issues that had me on the floor, miserable and seeking out every health professional I could find.
Finally, I had enough and decided something needed to give. So, I changed course and moved toward a life of new health and a new career. I enrolled in the Institute of Integrated Nutrition® and learned about how the food you eat effects your life; and how the life you lead can effect the food you eat. There are so many elements that can affect your overall health but it starts with what is on the inside…and what food you put there.
I have also received Shamanic training that is an earth based practice from the Northern plains. With this training I have learned how to become more in tune with nature and the messages around us. It has opened me up to a deeper understanding of my life and how to heal deeper emotional and energetic issues. I have integrated these teachings into my practice to better help you uncover what is blocking your life of health and happiness.
