How to set up life-long healthy lifestyle habits
It doesn’t have to be hard. A few small tweaks to your daily routine are all you need.
Every week there seems to be a new food trend doing the rounds, Keto, Paleo, Vegan, Pescatarian, Sugar Sucks (The New “Keto” and much more it is difficult to know what is right for you.
Eat More Plant-based Foods
Forget “Veganism”; plant-based foods is all about eating a majority (90% or more) of plant-based foods, but not excluding Organic and free-range chicken leg or grass-fed and finished meat. Proteins derived from plant sources – think pumpkin seeds, almonds, pea protein, and hemp protein. Adaptogens, ashwagandha, turmeric, reishi, lions mane, and shiitake mushrooms, are also hugely popular for the plant-based trend.
This diet is also great for the planet because plants have a much lower carbon footprint than animals. As such, you’ll notice the growing interest in sustainable, or better yet, “no waste”
With rates of mental health, infertility, gut health, children’s health, toxic overload, and chronic disease on the rise, get the facts you need from a professional and make informed decisions.
Add more Plant-based foods and choose Organic when it’s available. Eating naturally fermented pickles, sauerkraut, or kimchi with each meal is a great way not only to improve digestive symptoms such as bloating, gas, overweight, and mood swings but also to support your immune system, mental health, weight loss, rebalance your gut bacteria and feel more vital and energized.
How to achieve the weight that you want
Stop dieting! Don’t count and reduce kilojoules, otherwise, your body will think there is a famine, which raises stress levels and contributes to fat storage. With a few simple changes to your diet, including fermented foods, “Intermittent Fasting” rebalancing your hormones by eliminating toxic hormone disruptors, and finding an exercise routine that works for your body, you’ll soon be on your way to a lighter, healthier, and happier you.
Pre- Conception, Pregnancy, and Fertility ( I wanna have a healthy baby!)
Pregnancy didn’t come easy for me; for fifteen years I struggled to menstruate or conceive. My own frustration, impatience, and lack of confidence in the GPs empowered me to take back control and change what wasn’t working in my life.
Something had to give–I gradually ate more plant-based, vegan, ferments, and pickled foods, used medicinal herbs and finally at the ages of 41 and 46 my new path resulted in naturally falling pregnant and having two home births.
I struggled for more than 15 years to conceive. After discovering Chinese Herbs, a different diet and exercise plan, and cutting out endocrine disruptors and other contaminants it worked. I had a beautiful boy and then a lovely girl.
If you are thinking about becoming pregnant now or in the future or you having fertility challenges right now let’s talk.
It begins way BEFORE conception and in utero. The road to parenthood starts with your and your partner’s commitment to health at least 3- 6 months before conception.
Balance your mood through your hormones Get Back your natural spark!
There’s a persistent myth that only women above 50 have hormonal imbalances. Women and men of all ages experience imbalances. Even mental health issues like depression and anxiety can have their roots in hormonal imbalances and endocrine disruptors, in fact, hormones regulate almost every key function in your body. No matter what your age, it’s possible to reverse any systemic damage and get back your natural spark.
What meditation can do for you
Whether it be to support your mind, mood, or health, meditation is a fantastic tool to achieve these goals. In just a few minutes a day, you can focus your mind to reduce pain, stress, anxiety, mood swings, depression, and much more.
It’s not possible to smell, taste, touch, or see stress but you can feel the effects on your mind and body. With meditation, you can minimize the effects on your body and mind very quickly.
Just start with 5- 10 minutes a day at the same time in the morning, in a special place and it will soon become a habit just like brushing your teeth.
There are many forms you can learn. Together we can try different types of meditation techniques to see which one best resonates with you.

Sometimes, while we know what we want, we struggle to find the patterns and systems to get us there. Life Coaching, counseling, or psychotherapy may be a solution to help you feel equipped with the tools you need to build a more fulfilling life.
