When it comes to health so many of us are like deer in headlights trying to figure out what path to take.
Because of this, we tend to piecemeal together our approach- different practitioners, a few supplements here and there, trying a hot yoga class, doing a Whole30 in January after the holidays, the list goes on..but it never leads us to sustainable changes and lasting progress. As a human, I’ve done all the things too (ask my husband- he would say I don’t have a shoe problem, I have a wellness problem!).
It gets frustrating and expensive and leads us to feel like we’ll never get pregnant…or get our energy back postpartum…or get to the root of our gut issues…or find peace with our child’s up and down health.
Here’s the issue with trying to piecemeal your approach:
- You could absolutely go see a nutritionist for an hour and learn how to eat, but that may not fix your gut issues.
- You could go to a personal training session a few times a week, but that may not help you lose the 20 pounds you’re after.
- You could go to an endocrinologist for your thyroid, but you may never figure out why your thyroid isn’t working and get medication as a bandaid to cover up the root issue.
- You could do IVF or other fertility intervention, but never figure out what was impeding you getting pregnant naturally in the first place…and pass on whatever issues you have to your baby.
Doing all of these things independently never leads to real change because you’ve never sat down with someone to review it ALL and how it’s all INTERCONNECTED.
Your diet, your sleep, your exercise, your stress, your toxic load, your medical history and what you have previously tried ALL contribute to what you’re feeling today. Like me, you’ve probably focused mostly on diet and exercise to try and improve your health but unfortunately those two only go so far. For many of us, it takes stepping outside of what culture tells us is “healthy” and stepping inside our own bodies function to see what is actually going on.
The Health Math Equation
Think of it like this: If you want to empty a bathtub but never turned off the faucet OR have clogged drains…you’ll never drain the tub.
I use something I call the “Health Math Equation” to help you step-by-step get your health in order and stop chasing symptoms.
Many of us approach our health like the bathtub example above:
We keep trying to empty the faucet without first removing the things that could be contributing to “filling” our toxic tub OR the things that could be keeping us backed up.
The Spectrum of Motherhood
This all really hit home for me when I got pregnant and had my daughter. Prior to, I had been a health coach + fitness instructor for 6 years and thought I “knew all it” for what it took to be healthy and have a healthy pregnancy.
When she was born with health complications and I was left completed depleted hormonally + energetically in postpartum, I realized that I was missing several of the puzzle pieces that actually comprise what “healthy” is. Because of this, I shifted my practice, brought in functional lab tests and created a comprehensive program that tackles ALL aspects of health with a large focus on reducing toxicities in our homes.
I guide women along the spectrum of motherhood to feel confident in their health choices and get to the root of their symptoms so they can fully enjoy family life.
Each of us are likely at different places along this spectrum but we want better for our own health and our children’s health. We are sick of what is being called “normal”- things like chronic fatigue, hormone issues, gut issues, kids that are constantly sick, and overall just surviving and not thriving.
