Can I Share With You My Story…
Since I was a young girl, my weight and size was something I was aware of. Teased relentlessly and ostracized from my peers, food became my comfort. Food never made fun of me or excluded me.
Then as young teen; I experienced heavy, painful periods, acne, weight gain and mood swings. Like many young girls my age I was put on the birth control pill.
Around that time I fell into the trap of obsessive dieting and exercise, which led to my 20 year battle with the eating disorder bulimia. I believed if I could just be smaller and fit like the girls in the magazines, I would finally find contentment.
A further psychological impact was a result of my choice to enter fitness competitions for over 13 years. That, continued use of the IUD resulted in hormonal imbalance and cycles of severe weight gain and loss.
In an Ahha moment 9 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, synthetic hormones and high stress.
My body had stopped responding, I was gaining weight, suffering from exhaustion, insomnia, a non-existent sex drive, cravings and mild depression. My whole body felt like it had turned on me. So I started working on my nutrition, natural support supplements, daily movement, stress management and sleep habits. Over time, I was able to finally find balance.
As someone who has experienced the frustration of extreme hormonal imbalance, I knew that I wanted to help others who felt the same hopelessness. As a trainer and a coach I was able to work with clients one on one and address their needs through nutrition, movement, stress management and sleep. However, I still could not find the right supplement combinations.
Several years ago a friend of mine, Don Gauvreau, who is a leading Canadian formulator, agreed to collaborate with me in creating a product line that would support myself and others who were dealing with the same issues I had faced. Using the highest quality ingredients, Chinese Herbal Medicine and science based research, Aeryon Wellness was born.
As a mother to a twelve year old daughter, I want her to make educated, informed decisions when it comes to her body. I want her to know that being fit is not a reflection of the scale but how you feel day in and day out.
The mission of Aeryon Wellness is to empower women to reflect and be knowledgeable wherever they are in their wellness journey, from the young person to those past menopause. Fitness is not a number or a size but taking steps each day to become your best self.
Mind, Body & Spirit.
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, gut health and hormonal imbalance.
I am excited to offer these products in support of others finding their own health and wellness path.
