Finding balance between exercise and eating healthy has not always been easy as an athlete and holistic fitness coach.
It began as a young teen; I fell into the trap of obsessive dieting and exercise, which led to my 20 year battle with the eating disorder bulimia. A further psychological impact was a result of my choice to enter fitness competitions for over 10 years, which resulted in cycles of severe weight gain and loss.
In an Ahha moment 7 years ago I finally took action to change my behaviours, patterns, and life. However, even as I took all the necessary steps to heal my relationship with food and my body, I was still having physical side effects from my years of continuous dieting stress.
My body stopped responding, I was gaining weight, suffering from exhaustion, insomnia, a non-existent sex drive, cravings and mild depression. I felt desperate for a solution and finding a product that made a difference was a challenge. Then several years ago a friend of mine, Don Gauvreau, who is a leading, Canadian, formulator, agreed to collaborate with me in creating a product that would address my physical conditions, which are commonly known as adrenal exhaustion.
I remember the first time I tried Restore and Snooze. I could not believe the dramatic difference I felt, both physically and mentally. My energy level was finally consistent. I was clear, focused, and my cravings subsided. For the first time in many years I felt hopeful, and my weight finally regulated. The night time formula provided me with a deep, restful, sleep. I woke up in the morning energized and ready to take on the day. It was at that point that I knew my mission to share these products with other men and women wanting to address wellness issues that are hindering an active and productive daily life.
My products are a result of my personal journey. There is never a magic pill, rather a holistic approach that honours the mind, body and spirit. By using a combination of whole natural foods, movement, meditation and top quality supplements, I have found freedom from weight gain, low libido, stress, anxiety and hormonal imbalance.
I am excited to offer these products in support of others finding their own health and wellness path.
