Don't Wait For Your Wake Up Call!

As an Integrative Health Practitioner I have come to realize that we simply haven't been taught how to optimize our health, and that the average person has habits that are negatively impacting their health, due to this lack of knowledge, through no fault of their own. Public health and our school system simply don't teach us enough about nutrition, sleep, stress, gut health or how interconnected our bodies are! Modern life has us more sleep deprived, stressed out and the sickest ever, and I believe it is time to bring this education to you, so that you CAN be empowered in your health and you can then make the right choices for you and your family. The choices you make today impact your future 1 year, 5 years, 10 years + from now. It is never too early to start looking after your health, as Health is your TRUE wealth....without it what do you have?


episode 36: E036: 7 Steps To Help You kick the Sugar Habit

This is a continuation of episode #34. In that episode, I discussed the first 2 reasons why it can be so hard to kick the sugar habit and in this episode, I discuss the 3rd reason, as well as what happens when insulin is being produced to balance blood sugar and how when we have too much sugar in our blood for the insulin to store properly, it just stores it as fat, and at the same time, our fat-burning hormone is turned off when insulin is being produced. Is it any wonder our levels of obesity have been on the rise since the late 1980s when the food industry started putting sugar into everything? I finish up the episode with 7 simple steps you can take to help you kick the sugar habit.

If you need more help kicking the sugar habit, I have this online 28 Day Kick the Sugar Habit program you can take, which guides you through slowly lowering your sugar intake as you re-set your taste buds, so it doesn’t trigger cravings. Lots of great learning for you and all recipes are included, and they are delicious!
