I can’t wait to get started on my new read!
I just wanted to share with you that I was reminded, once again, that I am not superwoman, whaatt?? So, as many of you may know, my mom passed away in February. I can’t even remember the last time that I was sick! It just goes to show me how off my game I was and the results from that. How am I coaching clients with wellness when I am not even well myself?!? That definitely got my attention besides the fact that I didn’t like how I was feeling!
Without going into all of the details of how it all happened, my mom was living with me in my home. I had been sleeping on the couch during the last week of my mom’s life so that I was near when needed. I didn’t sleep very well as you can imagine. It took me a few more days before I settled back into my room and bed after she passed. I was exhausted, but during the time, I didn’t even think of how I felt as I was in automatic drive. I was up at all times of the night. And my eating, well, it was not my usual that is for sure. Grabbing things here and there, eating and not eating, and whatever was available to eat, forgetting my supplements at times. The results; no voice and an ear that I couldn’t hear out of and a little weight gain for a few!
So, I heard those messages that my body was saying to me and I have listened. I am getting back on my game! It seems that it was so easy getting off my game but much harder getting back on it, you may relate.
I am here to share with you that I am just as fallible as everyone else, especially the clients of Nourishing Wellness. With that, we get back on our horse, despite falling off and suffering the consequences any longer. No hand slapping or told-you-so’s. We do the best we can at any given circumstance. I am here for you; to support you through your ups and down’s of life, to help you get back on track. No one is perfect; I will be the first to admit that. Let me, help you get on track to a better you despite what life is dealing you today. There is never a better time.
I am 27 years old (as I didn’t know if I was 26 or 27 years old, I can hear my coach Michelle laughing as she said “us spiritual people don’t know how old we are, we don’t believe in getting old based off of age”) anyways, I want to share with you my story about me and where I once was and where it has lead me on this amazing, roller coaster journey that I thought I would never tell anyone as I was too scared, afraid, or heck even fear of being judged. But in the end, I hope to inspire and help others because feeling good feels fricken amazing!
Throughout high school, I was a normal high school kid. Played sports, had friends, but had a hard time concentrating in school. I even would break out in cold sores from what the doctor thought was stress and had to be put on Valtrex for my horrible outbreaks. Not only was it ugly and embarrassing but I didn’t understand why I got them. I didn’t think I was that stressed. After high school, my cold sores continued and I began to then get GI issues. I would throw up if I ate the “wrong food” which I never knew what would trigger it. I would have a few episodes each month of horrible pain in my stomach that radiated between my shoulder blades as well as my entire abdomen. I would even feel like I was 9 months pregnant, even though I wasn’t. My periods were normal, I had cramps and was very moody. I had to have my greasy burger or chocolate fix, but that’s what we all go through, right? I thought this was all normal till it went on too long. I wasn’t even the legal drinking age yet and I was having all these issues…was this really “normal” and “ok.” Is this what are bodies were made for and made to go through this?
Of course knowing what I know now, it’s not normal but neither is the way traditional medicine handled this. It wasn’t till I did a series of trial and error to not only find out what doesn’t work but most importantly what does work. Throughout the next couple of weeks, I will lead you through my personal journey. I hope to inspire as well as educate others with what I have learned personally. I invite you to pass this on to others you know that may be experiencing similar things I went through or to those and yourself who want and need great health results.
I was recently asked about my thoughts on Avocado Oil….hmmm…apparently, thumbs up!
Here is a fabulous article by Dr. Mercola about all the other things that is taxing our toxic load. Nourishing Wellness talks about this with their clients. After food, there are so many other elements that we need to look at. We seem to forget about all the chemicals that we may be putting on our bodies, or all the EMF’s that are around us. By reducing our toxic load in any way will be hugely beneficial to our wellbeing starting Day 1.
Okay….sometimes think my logo should have been an avocado instead of a beet! What can I say….but this looks scrumptious!
Here is a great article from Michelle Bersell, the writer of this article who lives right here in Mequon. I can’t thank Michelle enough for opening my eyes to the many emotions that I had shoved away for many years. We think we can handle these messages on our own, but we truly need a guide to help us understand what these messages are saying and what to do with them once we have uncovered them.
