Our health and wellness is deeply rooted in our own history – where we have been, what we have done, how we’ve treated our bodies and minds…..and, for many people, how we have neglected our good health.
Pause…..think about that for a minute.
Did you know that your body contains billions of bacteria that have traveled into and onto your body from the time you were born to this very moment? These bacteria make up your “microbial footprint” and can impact your health in a multitude of ways – especially in your gut.
Oh, the gut!
According to Ayurveda, an ancient, eastern-holistic science, the body’s footprint is also designed, in part, by the baggage from your ancestral heritage and the health, wellness, and lifestyle maintained throughout the span of those generations.
And then there is the modern science of epigenetics – the manifestation of your DNA as it reacts to HOW YOU treat your body through nutrition and lifestyle. Did you know this was a thing? It’s a thing – a critically important thing!
Combine your microbial footprint, your ancestral heritage, and epigenetics, and you’ve got a really complicated, interconnected mesh of possibilities when you’re considering your own health and wellness.
I am not here to argue the merits of modern medicine, or to get into a deep discussion about ancient philosophies on how to heal your body, or to suggest that you should or should not be on Weight Watchers, go to CrossFit, or take freezing cold showers like the dare-devil health-nut, Wim Hoff.
Instead, I offer simple, practical, and reasonable, anyone-can-take-these-steps to improve the human condition and make you feel better in your body. Maybe you suffer from Type 2 Diabetes, obesity, chronic-fatigue, depression, migraines, menopause symptoms, PMS, weight-management or any of the multitude of conditions that plague the 21st century human. I believe that our bodies and minds reflect what we eat and how we choose to live and for many, that means dealing with some really difficult physical, emotional, and spiritual issues.
How much money have you spent over your lifetime (or even just in 2017) joining a weight loss group, a gym, an exercise video-series, doctor visits, pills, physical therapy, massages (although who doesn’t LOVE a good massage now and then), or talk-therapy? Add it up. It’s astounding and maybe a little depressing. Have you ever considered investing in YOU as the vehicle for your own healing?
In March, I’ll be kicking off the pilot of my 11-week course called Healthy Habits that focuses on nothing more than simple lifestyle habits like what you eat, and what time you eat dinner, getting restful (real) sleep, moving the body in gentle ways that helps reduce stress and ultimately the belly “pooch”, hydration, regular and satisfying elimination (aka your daily poop), and food tips and tricks to design your kitchen to satisfy your nutritional needs and make cooking, eating, and serving your family 10,000 times easier and more enjoyable.
I am looking for 10-15 motivated people to participate in this pilot program, which will be offered both in-person and on-line at a very affordable price. The course is very flexible, so if you are a busy person and cannot commit to a place or specific time to participate, you can work at your own pace, but still get the benefits of a tribe of like-minded individuals, tons of tools and educational content, and plenty of access to 1-on-1 coaching. The habits you’ll develop will change your life forever. Complete the form below to have a conversation and learn more. We’ll set up a time and talk through your needs and desires and I’ll let you know if I feel the program is the right fit for you. Make 2018 a healthy one! For the Health of It….
