Why Nutritional Therapy
Let’s start at the beginning, shall we? I grew up in a very health-conscious household, so nutrition has been a priority for as long as I can remember. Health, fitness, and nutrition have always served as a creative outlet and stress reliever for me. However, over the years, my definition of “health” has evolved and my priorities have shifted.
Here is the quick rundown: as a teenager, you could find me on the elliptical for hours on end, followed by a chicken breast and broccoli dinner. At that point in my life, I would have given my left arm to be “skinny.” After several years, my health journey became a quest to get strong. As a Certified Personal Trainer, I spent most of my days at the gym. Fitness was my life. I lived and breathed barbells and protein shakes. Predictably, it did not take long for me to reach a state of complete burn out. My desire to look “toned” and gain strength quickly morphed into a craving for balance and moderation. It was then that I said goodbye to counting macros and rigid workouts. Several years later, here we are. Today, I am still on an ever-changing journey- in pursuit of my healthiest self.
Undoubtedly, these constantly changing seasons in my life brought me to where I am now.
What I failed to mention earlier were the endless health struggles I dealt with for years on end. Despite my pursuit of “health” or even my role as a Certified Personal Trainer, I never felt good. I spent countless hours and dollars at doctor visits only to be told nothing was wrong with me. But I knew something was off. I knew something was missing. And, I certainly knew I wasn’t crazy. After many years, I decided to take things into my own hands.
I was suffering from varying symptoms, like hormonal acne, bloating and gas, chronic fatigue, relentless brain fog, very irregular periods, frequent sicknesses, painful mouth ulcers, recurring yeast infections, etc.
I was sick and tired of being sick and tired. Maybe you can relate. Eventually, I turned to food for healing- something I should have done years earlier.
I like to think of food as God’s medicine.
Fundamentally, food is a delicious and satisfying God-given remedy. I quickly discovered that food has the power to heal or harm our bodies. And, truthfully, the choice is ours. While I still struggle from physical symptoms today, my body has progressed leaps and bounds. My journey has allowed me to truly understand and appreciate the power of food. For all these reasons, I decided to pursue a career in Nutritional Therapy. Having experienced the healing powers of whole, nutrient-dense foods, I just can’t keep this revolutionary secret to myself. If I’m being honest, there are moments I want to scream it from the mountain tops. Because natural, healthful, and nutritious foods are God-given tools that can transform our lives- physically, mentally, and spiritually.
I have been exactly where you are, and yet I have experienced incredible healing. Now, it’s your turn.
I want to walk along side you as you experience incredible healing through the most fundamental way: food.
