For the past few years, I had the pleasure of working for a local herbalist and nutritionist. During that time I was privy to hundreds of clients’ health issues and daily struggles both big and small. And, while it is absolutely true that no two people are the same, as humans we tend to follow fairly predictable patterns. In my often brief interactions with these clients, so many of the same health complaints came up again and again. These clients plead with me to point them in the direction of a magic pill or herb to rid them of their pain and if there was one – I PROMISE you, I’d be handing it out on every corner.

We all know, there is no magic pill.

And we know that, like most things in this life, we have to give something to get something.

The good news is, like our human tendencies, our bodies also follow patterns. Our bodies WANT to be healthy. They are made to constantly be self correcting and striving for natural balance. Those health issues that come up again and again can almost ALL be significantly improved with minimal physical effort and little or no money. Read that again! What a fantastic and empowering notion! You now have the knowledge that if you or your child are in pain, if you can’t sleep or focus or if you feel crummy for some unknown reason, you can begin to change the course of your life TODAY.

Now, I know I sound like a hype man or like I’m trying to sell you something – but truly I’m not. I want so badly for people to understand that they are in control of their OWN health. I need for my clients to understand that the absolute FIRST step in healing is to focus on fundamentals. Supplements, health coaching, functional testing and sometimes bloodwork and western medicine all have their place and all can play a role in your health journey. However, none of those things will do what they are best at if you don’t first decide that YOU are in charge of your body and your health and healing is 100% up to you.

Where do you start?

You believe.
You believe that you know better than anyone what is best for you.
You believe that you are in control and CAN heal.
You believe that you deserve to live a life of vitality and peace.

When you get out of your own way and give your body the fundamental building blocks needed, you WILL feel better and you WILL heal.
