How many times have you thought to yourself, “I just want to not be so tired?”
Ugh. I know that feeling. I know how it feels to want to…
…bounce out of bed instead of dragging yourself to the coffee pot
…feel fully present and connected with the people you care about
…be free of the literal NEED for caffeine
…feel mentally clear, focused, awake, alert, and productive
…have the energy to crush your workouts
…feel like you are living your life instead of surviving it
If you wish you could feel awake, energetic, and alive, I’m here to tell you it is possible. With the right tools and resources, you can identify what’s causing your low energy and take informed customized action.
I’m living proof. I’ve done it, and so many of my clients have too.
I bet you know something deeper is going on with your body, but it feels like no one is listening to what you have to say. Maybe you’ve been recommended medications and therapies, but nothing has helped you get your energy back.
You crave answers. You don’t just want to take medication to ease the symptoms. You want to address what’s causing the symptoms!
I know exactly how that feels. I struggled with feeling tired all the time like I was in this fog of low energy.
When I learned what was causing my low energy, I was able to make significant changes. I got my energy back and felt fully present in my life.
This is why I became a Health Detective: so that you can make the right changes, stop missing your life, get your energy back, and be fully present and optimally productive.
→ discovering what’s going on in your body, your mind, and your environment,
→ identifying what’s causing your low energy levels,
→ following a truly customized plan of action!
What you need is a new way of looking at the body and a plan that corrects the hidden, underlying issues causing your fatigue.
Here are the 3 exact steps I took and my clients take to transform exhaustion into energy, feel fully present, and be optimally productive.
#1 – Learn how to tune into your body and give it what it needs to feel your best.
Your body holds all of the answers you need. Yet we’ve been conditioned to disconnect from our bodies. We’ve been conditioned to believe taking a day of rest means we’re lazy or that eating “clean” looks a certain way.
Even if you feel lethargic, brain-foggy, tired, and gassy after that kale-chickpea salad, we’ve been conditioned to disregard those symptoms because so-and-so-nutrition-expert says that kale-chickpea salads with grilled chicken breast are what you “should” be eating.
On top of which, throughout your life, you may have experienced stressful situations, trauma, or micro-traumas that have caused you to “check out” and disconnect from your body.
When something doesn’t feel right in your body, that’s your body asking you to pay attention – to tune in to what it’s trying to tell you. When you do, you’ll know what to do to feel your best all the time. Because you’ll start noticing that you are slowly being fully present in the moment.
Have you ever noticed that when you have a stressful day, your stomach gets upset, you experience joint pain, can’t sleep, or your skin breaks out?
Or when you eat certain things your body reacts in some way?
This is your body talking to you, telling you it needs something.
I struggled with exhaustion for a long time. I know how it feels to be tired all the time and to want to have some expletive energy. I also experienced health issues that contributed to my fatigue: chronic pain, digestive issues, and abdominal pain, menstrual issues, and more.
Looking back, I can see these symptoms were my body’s way of waving the red flag to get my attention and let me know something was wrong.
We’ve become accustomed to accepting common things as normal, but just because something is common does NOT mean it’s normal.
Now, if my body feels “off” in any way, I tune in, check to see what it needs, and give it just that.
This could mean eating something differently, canceling obligations to rest, scheduling time together with friends, getting some fresh air, hitting my workout hard or reducing the intensity of my workout that day, or simply drinking some water.
Whatever my body needs I’ve got its back, and it’s got mine. I can teach you how to have your body’s back so that it has yours. Let’s work on being fully present.
#2 – Figure out what foods are right for your body so it can function at its potential.
This past weekend, a friend asked me if I track my macros. I told her no, I just pay really close attention to my body, and listen to it. I’ve learned what my body loves and needs, and I’ve learned the foods that my body does NOT love.
If a food makes me feel awesome, that’s what I eat.
If a food makes me feel not awesome, I don’t eat that food.
Seems simple, right? And yet – figuring out which foods make your body feel awesome can feel frustrating and confusing.
(Celebratory foods are the exception, of course. Sometimes a girl needs to enjoy some cheesecake, even with a sensitivity to dairy. My digestive system isn’t a fan, but my tastebuds are! And occasionally, that’s OK!)
You are unique. Your diet should be too. What works for one person won’t necessarily work for you, and yet the world tells you that you should fit yourself into a specific framework. There’s a difference between eating “clean” and eating what is right for your body. Eating right for your body will include healthy foods – but not every healthy food is right for your body.
You know you want to learn to listen to your body…so where do you start? Your body holds all of the answers you need. It tells you how it feels about the foods you’re eating!
How do you figure out what is right for your body?
I investigate specifically at which types of foods are going to be best for your body using a survey that captures the needs of your body’s systems, and I test to look for the foods that are causing inflammation, damaging your gut, and draining your energy.
By testing to see which foods your body responds best to, adjusting the amounts of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates based on your unique needs, we will ensure that your body is getting exactly what it needs, every time you eat.
This will instantly boost your energy! Plus it will reduce bloating, and provide the nutrients your body needs to function at its potential!
When I discovered what foods were right for my body, I immediately started to have energy. I started noticing that I was being fully present.
#3 – Uncover hidden healing opportunities and restore balance to your body’s systems.
The body is a complex system of systems. Each system is doing an important job that the other systems depend on.
When one system struggles, they are all affected.
Functional lab testing will help you see what systems of the body are out of balance and how they are impacting each other, revealing your hidden healing opportunities! These are NOT your typical blood tests. They are usually saliva, urine and stool based to show the physiological aspects of the body and how it’s working, or not working.
Functional lab tests will take a deeper look at your hormones, immune, digestion, detoxification, energy and nervous systems to guide you towards the right diet, rest, exercise, supplementation, stress reduction and toxin removal you need to be optimally energetic and fully present in your life.
Once we know what issues in your hormone, immune, digestive, detoxification, energy metabolism, and nervous systems are causing your low energy, you can begin following a truly customized plan to correct the underlying issues.
By following this customized, corrective plan of action, you will stop missing your life, get your energy back, and be fully present and optimally productive.
Feeling tired all the time is not your destiny. The exhausted zombie you feel like isn’t you.
With these 3 steps you can overcome your health challenges and show up in your life as the REAL YOU.
What step are you committed to taking today so you can transform your energy?
P.S. If you want to get your hands on the right lab tests and resources so you can find the missing pieces of your health puzzle, then schedule a call with the Health Detective and stop missing your life!
