My Story

How it all began...

Let me tell you how I started this incredible journey as an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach. Spoiler alert: It started with a sad story, but it continues as an incredible self-discovery journey filled with passion, health, and purpose.

It all started when my dad passed a few years ago from cancer on Christmas Eve. It was yet another reminder that life was short and precious and that it was essential to enjoy every moment while we still had the opportunity. I wondered whether his diet or lifestyle habits played a role in his disease. Soon after, I researched nutrition schools to educate myself on the subject. It became a life-changing experience! 

As I studied to become an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, I started reevaluating my life and how I was living it. As a working mom, I had put everyone’s needs before mine, thinking that it was the price to pay for a successful career and a happy family life. However, I realized that in the past few years, chronic stress had eaten me alive. It had manifested through such symptoms as cravings for sweets and muscle pain. I felt like a hamster in a wheel, not knowing how to get off that wheel. I felt powerless and wondered how to break the cycle to return to a healthy state. Unfortunately, stress and exhaustion were a daily reality. I was physically drained, couldn't fall asleep, and had insomnia. When I did manage to fall asleep, I would wake up a few hours later, consumed with the worries of daily life.  

I started paying attention to the signals sent by my body. I realized that the symptoms I was experiencing, from headaches to muscle aches, were caused by the inflammation taking over my body (due to chronic stress and the food I was eating). I have to admit that before my training, I had no idea that there was such a thing as inflammation, and I was even more clueless about the fact that food could cause it.

This was when I realized that I needed to make changes in my life. I needed to heal myself from this chronic stress that I knew was negatively impacting my health. It was the beginning of my awakening: the shift that needed to happen inward to make changes in my outer world. I decided to walk the talk and made drastic lifestyle and diet changes. I tackled each area of my life one by one. First, I made it a priority to manage my stress. Then, I suspected that certain foods I was eating were causing chronic inflammation and aggravating my symptoms. By experimenting with food, I learned which foods were soothing and which had to be reduced or eliminated from my diet. It was an incredible process of self-discovery that changed my life! 

I am happy to share that I learned to manage stress, incorporated exercise, and added self-care and mindfulness techniques into my routine. I now sleep better and feel more energetic and the best part is that I feel my best physically and mentally.

When I realized that I had made it off the “hamster wheel,” I vowed to empower women like you to take control of their lives. I am passionate about guiding women in their self-reflection journey and helping them discover and address the root cause of their issues. What's best than enjoying your life’s journey and living a happier and healthier life?

Are you ready to take control of your life and transform it, a spoonful at a time?
