I am a mama who places most of her energy into wearing that name. My work is with women who struggle to find their energy. I know how it feels and what it looks like. My energy soared once I started nourishing my adrenals and thyroid, letting go of stress and embracing self-care. That is how we begin the journey.
I love. I fear. I doubt. I pray. I hope. I dream. I dance. And I believe.
My coaching will move you from feeling drained to living a life of vitality. You. Feeling stuck and low energy. Craving sugar and wearing an apron around your waist. Seeing changes in your body. Knowing you are ready to make a change. Fearing. Struggling to eat right. Holding back. Stress is your routine, self care is not. Nonetheless, intrigued by the words renewal, vitality and joy.
How would it feel for you to have more energy? What would it look like? Would you be happier, more peaceful, feel more joy for your life?
Higher energy, more vitality and increased health starts with a balanced relationship with your body, mind and spirit. I will show you how simple foods and lifestyle changes can heal your life! I will ask you to trust more of yourself, and to give yourself more self love. I’ll show you how.
I discovered through my journey to wellness the leader in me. My workshops, Thyroid Vitality and Renew Your Energy where created to inspire my audience to look inward at their body symptoms, their emotional health and self care reserves. The Find Your Energy:10 Day Cleanse and Heal Your Thyroid Workshop was cultivated out of my desire to connect with women who have similar struggles as me. My facebook blog is my space to write about all the pieces of the puzzle. Come share your thoughts and ideas in this communtiy group.
Being authentic for me means doing what you love to do consistently. I do for others that I want for me.
My story inspired my life’s purpose.
Motherhood did not come easy for me. Madac, 10 lbs 14 oz, was born by c-section. He was healthy! His name means generous and lucky. I was lucky too. I survived losing all my blood that night. My lungs collapsed as did my bowels and I was placed on life support for two days. When I woke up I asked if I was alive. I was so grateful to be alive! “You were the work of a miracle my dear“ said one doctor.
The trauma I suffered was not the month stay in the hospital while I was fed by a feeding tube or learning how to breathe and walk again. Bed ridden, post traumatic stress, anxiety, infected uterus and fatigue on top on being a mom was the real trauma. After four months of it, I finally went to my first mommy and yoga class. Connecting with other mamas and with my son was so encouraging for me.
My surprise energy was stifled when I was diagnosed with severe hypothyroidism. This odd sounding disease runs rampant in my family. I soon learned about the body/food connection. With the guidance of a holistic nutritionist, a dear mentor and enrolling at CSNN I discovered the world of nutritional healing. Once a vegetarian and even more so a carbaholic, I turned to protein; free-range animal protein that is for healing. I traded in man-made food in boxes for bulk grains, animal protein, veggies, sea vegetables, beans, raw nuts, seeds and fruits. I leanrned how to make my own food from scratch.
When I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis I used it as fuel to learn and conquer it from the root cause. I started nourishing my immune symtem with healing foods. After two months of continuous support my doctor declared me Hashimoto free! Around that time, I learned how journaling, praying and self love would heal my mind and spirit. Being determined and grateful would have its impact.
I soon found my way back to my life, my husband and son.
Two years of learning how to eat and live well, I was declared with normal thyroid function. Victory! I healed my thyroid naturally.
The key was to was to listen in to what my heart really desired.
As I balanced my blood sugar levels, strengthened my iron supply, eased my digestive woes, calmed my hormones, made peace with the past and let go of my troubles miracles started to happen. A new day was dawning. The anxiety disapeared, the low energy was melting. The sun was rising and so was my life.
Our body has an incredible ability to heal if given a chance.
Just as it took years for my symptoms to arise, and even more time for my disease to present itself, it took time and courage to see a new vitality arise. I promise that the journey was all mine and it was a beautiful awakening to my own life.
I was driven by my desire to reclaim my health and my life. You see I was living with purpose and in order for me to help others this was the road I needed to travel.
This was a journey had I not travelled I would not have made the necessary changes needed to become the person and practitioner I am today. My hope is that by sharing my story I will encourage you to be patient and loving with your body and mind as you too go through the process of healing and renewing your energy too!
“When you choose to love yourself, you are really saying that you want to feel alive!”
Wishing each one of you love, joy & renewed energy!
