In 2007, I got sick…bad sick. I had Epstein Barr Virus that had turned into full-blown mono due to not being diagnosed for so long. Periods of blindness, continuous tremors, panic attacks, dehydration and more. My recovery was long and during that time I gained weight. For the first time in my life, I was overweight and couldn’t get it off.
Through a series of events, I discovered my overactive immune system had caused many food allergies including a gluten allergy (not Celiac’s) that caused a continuous hunger due to not absorbing nutrients. After eliminating food allergies, I began a 12 week weight loss program that actually slowed my metabolism instead of increasing and caused me to lose muscle. So even though I lost weight (40 lbs), I gained fat in my body composition. Then I discovered Paleo and High Intensity Interval Training (see articles on Why Paleo? and Why HIIT?). My body fat/muscle ratio began to lean up (went from 28% to 22%), I ate less cause not hungry, and had increased energy, strength, and power. These are just a few of the benefits.
I have passion for wellness and fitness; therefore, my approach is not just exercise or food but also to help you find other ways through supplements, essential oils, and emotional support for you to reach your fitness goals. I look forward to working with you and helping you reach your goals!
I discovered essential oils one day when I went for a massage and experienced detox symptoms. I told the masseuse and she suggested a “cleanse.” She explained that it was simply applying about three oils (lavender, lemon, and peppermint) on my wrists and I never had another detox symptom after a massage. I took note of that. So one day I was praying about an answer to the monthly illnesses and stumbled on Sharnael Wolverton’s site. I ordered a couple of CDs from her and learned quite a bit about oils including Thieves. I became a distributor and since then haven’t been sick in over a year! I also saw an improvement with allergies taking lavender internally twice a day. Endoflex helped shorten my periods and stop PMS symptoms. The list goes on and on.
In my pursuit of wellness, I was introduced to Heartmath and became a certified Heartmath 1-on-1 Provider. Heartmath helped me learn how to overcome negative effects of stress and stressful situations. I was able to overcome a weight loss plateau and lose the final five pounds as well as learn how to properly and easily deal with difficult times. I have seen others I have taught Heartmath overcome insomnia, depression, anxiety, lower blood pressure, and more.
And last but not least I was introduced to Nerium AD. This skin care product is absolutely stunning and amazing in its ability to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, and more. It helped lift my droopy eye from sun damage when I was a teenager, got rid of severe brown spots on my cheeks, and eliminated my fine lines and wrinkles. I am 40 but look much younger. And this company is the most well paying company I have worked with. It is a great business opportunity or a great opportunity for you to look 10 years younger in one year as a Preferred Customer!
