My Awakening To The Restoring Power Of Holistic Nutrition
When I got out of University with my degree in Community Rehabilitation, I got a job, worked really hard, and within four years I moved from an entry-level position to be an Executive Director of a government funded organization. In addition to the long hours I worked, I had a baby, a 3-year-old, a house, my partner and my busy life. I was just too busy with work/motherhood to take good care of myself. People would always ask me, “How do you do it all?” or “Won’t you burn out?” to which I always replied, “No, I’m fine, I can handle it”
In 2012, I experienced my first anxiety attack. I couldn’t believe it. In the next three months, there were more so I saw my doctor who me that I had a generalized anxiety and that medications were the solution. As someone who worked in the field of mental health, I knew that for me I did not want to start with medications and decided to research other options.
I began to read every book I could find on how nutrition could be used to promote vibrant health and wellness for both the body and mind. I started changing my diet by introducing specific supplements and nutrients that would support my ulcer, digestive system, energy, stress and of course feelings of anxiety. I can tell you that I not only saw significant improvements in those areas but I also felt alive, vibrant and happy. Now, I sleep great, have tons of energy, am free of pain and fear, and I look forward to taking on the day ahead of me. The changes I made were also beneficial to my family. My partner had less back pain, better sleep, and renewed energy. My daughter is happier and her allergies have diminished. My son, who was hyperactive, suddenly became calm, focused and excelled at school.
From Panic Attacks to a Certified Holistic Nutritional Consultant
Today I no longer have panic attacks and I feel better than ever! I never took medications for either of those diagnoses and they do not impact my daily life anymore.
Through my experience, I knew the power of nutrition and wellness to have life changing impacts on people’s lives. I made the decision to go back to school to become a C.H.N.C and obtain a diploma in Nutrition from the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition. I became a Certified Corporate Wellness Specialist through the Corporate Health and Wellness Association. I also obtained my Raw Food Chef Certification from The Raw Foundation of Culinary Arts & Nutrition Institute. This education, combined with my personal and professional experience has made me passionate about educating and sharing my nutrition and health knowledge. I am passionate about supporting those I work for to live in the most vibrant body they can.
