Get your body back
I spent a week in Maui earlier this month, and it made me think of how grateful I am to have my body back, to feel confident in a bathing suit, and to be carefree about life.
But it made me wonder…how are you feeling in your body?
I’ve had my fair share of body image and health struggles, but through all of it I learned how to love my body regardless of what it looked or felt like. Eventually, with the right lab tests and resources, I was able to get my body back to feeling like home again for good.
You deserve to look and feel your best too, and I’m proof that it’s possible for you.
Summer will be here before you know it, stirring up all kinds of judgments, criticisms, wants, and desires related to how you feel in your body.
Would you love to feel like your old self again by the time Summer arrives?
…the energetic, clear-minded, great skin, creative, in-shape, productive, pain and the bloat-free person you used to be.
I know. I’ve been there, and many of the clients I’ve worked with have been too.
There once was a time when I felt like a stranger in my own body.
Acne took over the radiant skin I was always so proud of. Extra weight or bloating hid the muscle tone I worked so hard for and drastically reduced my outfit options. Low energy limited my ability to basically show up in life; to be the social butterfly I had always been, to be present or creative in my work and at home.
All I could think about was a time when I felt physically and mentally fit. I didn’t have any self-imposed limitations. All I wanted was to find myself in that place again.
Do you ever find yourself wondering why you don’t have the energy to do the simplest tasks such as putting away the laundry, riding bikes with your kids, or paying attention to a conversation?
Does getting dressed every morning feel like internal warfare with yourself – you put something on, criticize yourself in the mirror, and change your outfit a million times until you find something that doesn’t make you feel like a stuffed sausage?
If you feel this way or have ever felt this way, can I get a hell yeah?
If so comment below to let me know!
I struggled for a while before I figured out how to get my body back for good – but I did get it back and you can too.
The first thing you need to know is, there is WAY more to getting your body back than changing your diet and exercising.
And the second thing you need to know is that it doesn’t have to be complicated.
Diet and exercise are just two pieces of the puzzle when it comes to feeling like your best self, but they are only effective when the body is running on all cylinders.
Think of it like this…
If you owned the highest-profile performance vehicle available in the world, filled it with the highest quality fuel, and tried to take it from zero to sixty in 30 seconds with a clogged air filter, empty oil canister, imbalanced tires, and sketchy electrical system, what do you think would happen?
The car wouldn’t perform as expected, right?
This is similar to what happens when you try eating right and exercising, but get little to no results. There’s something going on underneath the hood reducing the efficacy of your efforts.
In this week’s video and blog, I want to help you understand what is potentially going on underneath your hood so you can get your body back for good.
Have you ever caught yourself staring in the mirror wondering how you got here?
… where did all the weight come from?
… is everyone else noticing the circles under your eyes?
… how are you going to make it through all your meetings today?
… what would happen if you just went back to bed and hid under the covers?
You see, so many others have felt this way too, but they have also found a way to get their bodies back for good with the right lab testing and guidance.
What you’re experiencing did not happen overnight. Feeling out of place in your body is something that has occurred over time amongst the shuffle of work, kids, responsibilities, travel, stress, and anything else going on in your life.
Feeling uncomfortable in your own skin happens when…
- Your hormone system goes haywire
- Your immune system gets weak
- Your digestive system is dysfunctional
- Your detoxification system doesn’t work
- Your energy system gets slowed down
- And your nervous system sends mixed signals
In order to get your body back for good, you’ve got to get all of the systems of the body running right, just like a high-profile performance vehicle should be.
If your expensive high profile performance car wasn’t running right, what would you do?
You would take it to the best specialist around for a thorough evaluation that would include a variety of diagnostic tests to check every aspect of the engine, fuel lines, tires, pumps, and more.
To get your body back for good, you’ll want to do the same thing so you can understand what is going on underneath the hood; what’s happening with your hormones, immune, digestion, detoxification, energy, and nervous system so you’ll know exactly what steps to take to restore function and feel your best again.
Here’s the caveat though…
Running typical blood tests with your general practitioner, or even some specialists won’t get you the answers you’re looking for.
In order to REALLY see how your body is functioning, you’re going to need to run functional lab tests that provide deeper insights about function!
The good news is these functional lab tests are super easy to do. Most of them are urine, saliva, and stool-based, making it convenient for you to do them in the comfort of your own home.
And when working with the right health expert (like me!) you can use the data from these lab tests to guide:
- What foods are right for your body
- How much sleep you need and when
- What type of exercise will get you the best results
- Which stress-reducing tools would be most effective for you
- And what toxins or other environmental factors you should minimize to boost your health
Now doesn’t that sound pretty straightforward? Instead of guessing about what you should be doing to feel good in your body again.
Using the data from functional lab tests to guide recommendations for diet, rest, exercise, stress reduction, supplementation, and toxin removal is exactly how clients of mine such as…
…Leslie, lost over 20 lbs in 6 months bringing her back to pre-college weight and has an abundance of energy all day long…
…Kristine got rid of stubborn excess pounds, daily pain, sugar cravings, and was able to stabilize her energy levels
…Jene, was finally able to control her Muscular Sclerosis symptoms naturally and can now keep up with her grandson…
…David, lost 40lbs without engaging in a structured workout routine and is able to sleep through the night…
Running functional lab tests is also what gave me the insights to get my energy back, get my weight under control, clear up my skin, and think clearly again when I wasn’t getting the results I wanted from diet and exercise, or my doctors.
Running these types of lab tests is what has helped so many of my clients uncover hidden healing opportunities such as:
- Estrogen dominance
- Insulin resistance
- Cortisol dysfunction
- Liver congestion
- Poor thyroid function
- And intestinal parasites, bacteria, and yeast overgrowth
These things were standing in their way of feeling like their best self despite their diet and exercise efforts.
With the right lab tests and resources, it is possible to feel good in your body and like yourself again!
