What I do has nothing to do with quick fixes.
If you’re interested in losing a few pounds and then going back to what you’ve always done. Then I’m likely not your gal.
If you are ready to tune in to your body’s signals and learn how foods and lifestyle changes can affect your health and immune system, then you’re at the right place.
Food is powerful.
I believe we can have it all; delicious food, great health and vitality, easy weight maintenance, better hormone balance and less inflammation. All this is possible without cravings, feeling deprived or without living in a restrictive or punishing diet mentality.
I also think we have way more power over our health than we’ve been led to believe. This little bit of information has been left out of the dialogue for way too long. Many common diseases and problems are preventable and avoidable.
We are a band-aid society. We’ve learned to slap band-aids on symptoms and never slow down enough to address the root causes of all those pesky symptoms.
Health is basic and fundamental. Without it, we are left with very little and we often can’t do the things we’ve been preparing for and saving for all these years.
If you don’t think you have time to address the little red flags your body is sending you today. Rest assured; your body will make sure you pay attention once it’s reached its limits. It will lay you flat! It’s called dis-ease .
The problem is we’ve never learned how to interpret or even tune in to the red flags or the messages our body is giving us.
Changes that are rooted in learning and understanding the why behind the suggested change become meaningful and long lasting.
I’ve distilled the success of my clients into 3 main factors that are the cornerstones for overall health and well-being.
Addressing these 3 key areas is like money in the bank for ensuring a productive, happy healthy future and making sure that you can actually do and enjoy all those things that you’ve been working so hard for.
- The first factor is balancing insulin levels. Dr Jason Fung discusses the impact of insulin in his book, The Obesity Code. Insulin is a master hormone in the body. Balanced stable insulin levels will have a huge impact on our ability to lose weight and keep it off. Chronically high insulin levels will have an impact on energy, inflammation, cholesterol levels and hormone balance not to mention our risk for developing type 2 diabetes. Insulin affects our mood, anxiety and sleep. It’s a big one!
- The second factor is digestion. Hippocrates said: all disease begins in the gut. Strong digestion is foundational to good health. Proper digestion will ensure that all of those great nutrients from the whole foods we give our body can actually be accessed and made available to the cells to do their job. Check out my blog on digestion.
- The third factor is proper elimination. Ensuring proper elimination and supporting our detoxification organs is also crucial for overall health. We are exposed to countless toxins from our environment, from our food as well as toxins that are generated from within. There are plenty of natural ways to ensure proper elimination and lessen the toxic load.
If any of this resonates, please listen to this recorded info session describing the Metabolic Balance program and why it’s my best tool for addressing the three factors described above.
I love the therapeutic approach to food that Metabolic Balance provides as well as the holistic-food first approach to health.
I hope you’ll join me for a virtual info session.
