My Story

Hey there I am Jody

Holistic Health Coach, Real Food Fanatic, and Nature Lover.

Thank you for checking out my little space here on the web.

Hope you find something helpful and gain some inspiration on your path towards becoming healthier and living a life of true authenticity.

This has been my goal for the past 5 years and I have transformed my life from unhappy and uncomfortable into one of

Mindfulness, Confidence, Authenticity, and Pure Joy.

Where it all began

 

I spent part of my adolescent life feeling depressed, foggy, lost, and trapped. I was going to school like I was told to, I was getting a job like I was told to, and I was trying to fit into a crowd wondering why it all just felt so wrong.
I didn’t receive much of any education in Nutrition and Healthy Lifestyles so my diet consisted of chocolate chips, dairy, and bread in as many different forms as possible. It wasn’t until I was on the verge of passing out with stomach pains, a severe headache that wouldn’t subside, blurry vision, and constant fatigue that I finally woke up and said

‘Okay, something isn’t right and it’s up to me to figure out what, and change it.’

So I did.

I finally enrolled myself in that Nutrition class I had always wanted to take.

I listened to my body and saw that Naturopathic Doctor who was always in the back of my mind who helped me understand my handful of chocolate chips first thing in the morning was skyrocketing my blood sugar setting me up for a day of some serious ups and downs. My low intake of vegetables and leafy greens was leaving me iron deficient with an inability for my blood to get the oxygen it needed.

My lack of knowledge about foods and balancing my plate was causing some serious havoc on my body and preventing me from being able to think clearly and make good decisions for myself.

My ability to make this change came from me switching my mindset and my diet.

From one of listening to what others were telling me to do, to one of listening to myself and my body and what it was trying to tell me.

I was so focused on taking advice from those around me who were successful in fear of failure if I didn’t, yet I hadn’t realized that their success was different from what I saw as success for me.

I had to start listening to my own self, my own intuition, in order to see how the advice I was given by others may have been good, but it wasn’t what I needed in order to get to where I wanted to go.

The only way we can heal ourselves and accomplish the things we want to in life is if we trust our own intuition.

I am here to help you relearn how to trust your own gut and intutition and give you that support you will need when you start making these changes. With every change there is an obstacle and I will be there to help you overcome it.
