I love sugar. I really do. I always have.
In fact, I struggled with a sugar "addiction" in my early twenties. I turned to sugar every time I was bored... lonely... stressed... or otherwise not totally engaged and absorbed in something Iw as enjoying.
This habit quickly led to health problems. At the time, I was continually diagnosed with strep throat... even though the slab tests came back negative for strep EVERY TIME.
How's that for medical care?
Don't get me wrong, modern medicine can be an amazing thing. But too often the SYSTEM is broken. As it clearly was in this case.
So I declined the antibiotics after the first time, since it obviously wasn't helping.
And I turned to an M.D. who focused on hoslitic healing.
And he gave me some great herbal remedies for my throat infections... and yet he could not help me PREVENT them either.
After bouncing around a variety of hippie remedies, I ended up finding an acupuncturist that gave me the NUTRITION advice my body needed.
"You're eating too much sugar."
Because she was so much more to me than just someone poking needles in my meridians. She took a holistic approach to my health and really saw through the symptoms to find the cause.
And that is what I do now with my health coaching clients.
A young woman I recently worked with was finding it difficult to lose weight, despite a regular exercise routine. After digging into her lifestyle, we came to realize that STRESS was the cause of her problem. She was eating at work in a chaotic environment and reacting to that by overeating... without even realizing it.
Because it's not always easy to see our OWN hurdles.
That is part of my LOVE EVERY BITE FORMULA, which is the second phase of my signature coaching program, LOVE EVERY BITE.
The love every bite formula is an opportunity to tune into your body's messages, with my help and guidance, and figure out what it is saying.
Because if you feel bad, tired, bloated, or worse... your body is talking to you! And it might not be that you ate too much gluten It might be that you have a stress, a worry, a habit, or a pattern that is really at the root of things.
