Sometimes the Next Step is Working with a Coach!

This Quote below is a wonderful way to begin this writing.  It’s by Joshua Rosenthal, from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition (where I obtained my Coaching Certification).

“Working with a Coach is not about acquiring more self-discipline or will power.
It’s about personally discovering what nourishes you, what feeds you and ultimately what makes your life extraordinary.”
Joshua Rosenthal

I remember the days of living in a state of anxiety, depression, and body pain.

I had times that I was dealing with insomnia, stress, and just forcing myself to get through each day.

There was a point in my life that I was constantly fighting off cold sores.  I had a weak immune system to say the least.

This was not a way to live.

If any of these issues hold true for you, I get it.  The problem is we may not like it, but we don’t know how to make changes.  We have lived in this state for so long, that it has almost become our friend.  On one level we don’t want to live this way, but on another level it’s what we are used to so there is some aspect of comfort.

Moving out of that state to feeling alive again can be hard when there are so many issues to focus on.  How do I begin?   Where do I start?  What am I doing wrong?  That’s where Giving You a Fresh Start can help you begin that journey.

If you are considering making changes in your life so you can feel alive again, then perhaps a Spiritual Life & Health Coach would be the answer.

My heart is to revive people’s ability to change the course of their lives and help them feel like they are living again by Giving Them a Fresh Start! I look at both health, physical environment, and emotions to bring about changes in one’s life.

How did my journey begin?

Forty years ago, I developed “Typhoid Salmonella” poisoning

  • I spent almost two weeks in the hospital.
  • I was admitted with 107-degree temperature.
  • I was given bags and bags of antibiotics. It was a grueling process, but I did get well.
  • A year later I developed chronic yeast infections. The infection was so bad that my body ached.
  • I went from Doctor to Doctor, treatment to treatment and to no avail.
  • It still kept coming back.
  • I had to deal with this for a little over a year.

Finally, God answered my prayer and someone recommended I see Dr. Leo Galland. He saved my life!

  • Dr. Galland was an MD that practiced Integrative Medicine.
  • He did a complete work up (physical, mental, spiritual, emotional) and determined that the antibiotics I was given the prior year had wiped out the normal bacteria in my body.
  • I was overcome with yeast.
  • He put me on a “yeast free” diet and a number of supplements … probably a probiotic.
  • I was completely healed.  I never had a problem again … ever.

Well, being on a yeast free diet wasn’t easy. But I didn’t care. I would do whatever he instructed me to do.  I wanted health again.

This began my journey of:

  • Reading labels.
  • Understanding what ingredients were.
  • Eating “cleaner.”

Now fast forward 15 years later and my second child is born.

  • At about 18 months, he develops symptoms that he would awaken every night screaming in terror.
  • I thought he had an ear infection.
  • I took him to the pediatrician.
  • I was told “night terrors.”
  • I asked, “Now what do I do?”
  • “Nothing,” the Doctor said, “He’ll outgrow it!”
  • I was shocked.
  • This is not normal nor how I believe God wanted my child to live.

That’s when God answered a prayer again and my next level of research began.  I discovered Dr. Feingold.

  • Dr. Feingold believed that ADD, ADHD, night terrors, chronic ear infections, etc. had to do with the food coloring and preservatives in food.
  • What I didn’t realize was his baby food had food coloring in it.  It wasn’t listed on the label.
  • I put my son on the Feingold diet and his night terrors went away.

Thank God for natural remedies and getting to the root of the issue and not just medicating or putting a Band-Aid on it.

I learned over the years that your health, your environment, and your emotions truly go hand and hand.  Making change is a process and a journey and doesn’t happen overnight. But the sooner you get started, the sooner you will start on a path of wellness. I would love to work with you to bring peace, love, joy and health into your life.

I can help revive you and “Give You a Fresh Start” that will help you feel alive again.  I’ll work with you each step of the way as we turnaround your situation. But most importantly, I will believe in you and encourage you to bring those changes in your life so you will feel alive again!  It will be fun and the best thing you can do for yourself …I promise!
