Thank you for stopping by.
I want to share a little about me so you get to know me better.
First, I am a mom of two grown children, a daughter, early 30s and a son, late 20s. I became a grandmother to a baby girl, Dela in November 2019.
My Health Journey
Since my twenties I’ve had digestive issues. In fact I remember when my physician at the time, mentioned to me that I have gastritis and I need to learn how to handle my stress. To this day, stress has been an ongoing struggle of mine.
When I was a stay-at-home mom, I didn’t have stomach issues. Then in my forties, things changed after I got divorced. I had really bad acid reflux that I needed to see a gastroenterologist and had a procedure done, endoscopy to check my esophagus. I took several medications i.e. Zantac, Protonix, Acidphix, and more. The last one, Nexium, was when I said, “Enough is enough.”
I began studying nutrition by taking an online class. Then I found the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. And that is when my health shifted. I learned so much while I was enrolled in IIN’s Health Coach Training Program. Not only did I learn over 100 dietary theories, but after I did an elimination diet, I felt so much better and no longer needed meds (proton-pump inhibitors). If you want to learn the protocol I used, contact me.
Note: To this day I eat a primarily plant-based diet; however, I will eat wild caught salmon or cod, organic ground turkey, organic chicken, and occasionally an egg.
I worked in aerospace for seven years then become a stay-at-home mom of two children for 15 years. I divorced after 16 years of marriage and re-entered the work force. I worked temporary jobs before landing a position as an Assistant Property Manager. I worked in commercial real estate/property management for approximately three years before becoming unemployed.
Working a 9 to 5 job, I ate a Standard American Diet…fast food, processed foods, lots of white rice and white pasta, refined sugar, etc.
I taught classes at Whole Foods and online. I am an author of Healthy Living Made Easy. I was the Santa Ana Digestive Health Examiner at www.examiner.com, and a featured health blogger for www.modernmom.com. I have collaborations with yogadownload, madebyhemp, and SundayScaries.
