Allergies… They’re Coming – Stop them Now!

Now that spring is upon us and we’re finally getting that warm weather we have desperately yearned for, most of us will be suffering from the plight of seasonal allergies. (Cue the dreadful music!)

For many, if not all of us, the quickest relief for allergy symptoms is to take an over the counter pill such as Zyrtec or Claritin. I know many people who take it everyday or they land up with a sinus infection and have to go to the doctor. However, these pills are definitely not a miracle pill. They’re often associated with unwanted side effects including drowsiness and irritation.

But wait… there’s hope!

What if I told you that you don’t have to be miserable throughout allergy season? What if I told you that you could do it without any over the counter or prescription drugs?

Nutrition Bars, Sports Bars, and Vegan Bars – Oh My!

EnergyBarsHave you been to the “nutrition bar” aisle in the store lately? Yes, most stores now have their own aisles dominated by what is usually referred to as nutrition, sports, and meal replacement bars.

What is a Health Coach (and why in the world would you need one?)

The term “health coach” may seem confusing to some, after all what would you do with a health coach in your life? How would your life be made better?

A health coach is someone who will stand by your side as you learn to navigate your way to a life full of health – glowing, positive, abundant health.

In a world where we are constantly bombarded with unhealthy foods, cheap meal replacements, confusing and often times contradicting information, long work hours, and stressful lives, a health coach is the support system that you need to help you figure out how to stay healthy even though it may feel like the odds are always against you.

As your health coach, I am committed to integrating nutritious and delicious food into your lifestyle.

It’s not always easy, but with me by your side, you’ll be able to get through the bumps in the road, because let’s be honest, there are always some on our journey.

I will also help you enjoy the journey (bumps and all!) because health is not just a destination, it’s a way of life. Sometimes we get so caught up in what we should be doing or how we should be feeling that we forget where we are at that very moment.

Being your health coach, I will integrate a plan that’s completely fit to your specific needs and body. There’s no “one size fits all plan.” That’s ridiculous! I will work with you to find out what your body needs, not what anyone else needs.
