My journey towards a career as a certified holistic health and wellness coach began with a health crisis.
I literally was killing myself by eating processed foods and eating at fast food restaurants three to four times a week. At the time I felt okay and had lived like this for eight years before it all blew up in my face.
In 2012 my sister and I had taken my mom to see "Riverdance" perform at the Sudbury arena in Northern Ontario, Canada. Before the show began, I ordered a popcorn with double butter. As I walked back to my seat I noticed the butter oozing out from the bag. I didn't like that but had to eat it - after all I just paid for it!
Half-way through the performance, I couldn't eat anymore and threw out the rest. I didn't feel good for the rest of the evening and went to bed feeling nauseous. At about 3:30 in the morning the nausea woke me up. I threw up felt better and went back to bed.
In the morning - I could not eat anything. For the next six months, I could not eat anything but some fruits and raw vegetables - even cooked vegetables were hard to swallow. I couldn't eat any cooked foods what-so-ever. No boiled eggs, no meat. One bite and that would be enough to make me nauseous and with pain.
I had all the tests imaginable and still the doctors never found out what was wrong with me. Because I was mainly eating fruits, I became anxious due to my diabetes so I asked the doctor what I should do. He didn't know. He just told me to continue doing what I was doing....he had no answer for me.
I literally felt that I was dying. I even got prepared for the inevitable by getting my life in order.
Well I lost 40 pounds in just two months so that's when I decided to take life into my own hands. I read everything I could on different diets and decided to stay on the Raw Diet. But because I was still not eating properly and feeling better, I began to eat unhealthy again and gained back 20 pounds.
Until I started with the Institute of Integrated Nutrition. Slowly I began to be aware of the nutrients that was missing in my diet and foods that I needed to eliminate, along with the imbalance in Primary Foods; relationships, exercise, career and spirituality.
So now I think of my life as unique and precious. I have the talent and strength to positively change the world and make it a better place. I know that I will have a healthy and happy life, and a wonderful career helping others with their weight-loss and digestive issues.
