What does 40 mean to you?
What does life at 40 and beyond mean to you?
Turning 40 is often referred to as “being over the hill” – implying that you’re old and past your prime.
People (including health professionals) frequently think getting old means having to accept that:
- Weight gain is inevitable
- Low energy is to be expected
- Hormone imbalances are bound to happen
- Joint pain is unavoidable
- Developing health issues over time is definitely going to happen
As the years have gone by, how many times have you said out loud or in your head, “I just want to feel like my younger self again?”
Wishing you could….
…bounce out of bed instead of dragging yourself to the coffee pot
… feel comfortable in your body and clothes
…not have to work so hard to maintain your weight
…overcome weird hormonal stuff
…simply feel your best so you could live life to the fullest
We’ve been told that healths risks increase after 40 and therefore we need to get screened regularly for things such as:
- Breast Cancer
- Colorectal Cancer
- Lung Cancer
- Prostate Cancer
But is all of this really true?
What if it was possible to feel healthier and happier at 40 or beyond than you did in the first part of your life?
I’m here to let you know it IS POSSIBLE.
The downsides of aging do NOT have to become your destiny. YOU DESERVE BETTER.
I’m living proof.
It’s my 40th birthday month (yes I’m celebrating the whole month and year in fact LOL), and I feel more at home in my body, more energetic, well-rested, balanced, and happier than ever before.
With the right tools and resources, you can find the missing pieces to your health puzzle and get back to feeling like yourself again, or for the very first time.
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. Or you shrug it off as being normal because what you’re experiencing is so common.
You’ve probably seen specialist after specialist and been recommended a laundry list of supplements, medications, and therapies but nothing has really helped you get YOU back.
You understand there’s a place for specialists and medications, but you think there’s a better way to get your health and self back so you can enjoy your life to the fullest.
You crave answers like a kid craves candy (and you probably crave foods too for unexplained or uncontrollable reasons!).
Am I right?
I’ve been there; I’ve been told my blood work looked normal even when I didn’t feel that way, or that my weight, energy, and hormone issues were a part of aging when I knew better.
I was searching for answers that no one else could seem to give me.
That’s when I decided to take destiny into my own hands and become the boss of my health.
In this week’s video and blog, I’m going to help you become the boss of your health too so you can feel your best despite your age!
What you need is a new way of looking at your health, and education instead of medication, then you’ll have the keys to control your destiny and feel your best at any age.
Here are the 3 exact steps I took and that I guide my clients through to boost energy, balance hormones, achieve weight goals, and overcome just about any other health issues that might be ailing you.
#1 – Figure out what foods are right for your body so it can function at its potential.
You are unique and therefore your diet should be too. What works for one person won’t necessarily work for you and yet you’re trying to fit yourself into a specific framework with most dietary approaches.
There’s a difference between eating healthy and eating right for your body. Eating right for your body may include healthy foods, but not every healthy food is right for your body.
So how do you figure out what is right for your body?
You can do this by testing to see which foods your body responds best to, and then dialing in your macronutrient (protein, carb, and fat) ratios using my Food and Body Language Log.
This will instantly boost your energy, reduce any bloating, and provide the nutrients your body needs to function at its potential. When I discovered what foods were right for my body, I instantly started feeling more like myself again.
#2 – Find the missing pieces and restore balance to all body systems.
The body is a complex network of systems, each doing an important job that the other systems depend on. When one system goes down, they are all affected.
Functional lab testing will help you find the missing pieces so you can see what systems of the body are out of balance and how they are impacting each other, revealing your personal 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 system. In turn, this will guide you towards the right diet, rest, exercise, supplementation, stress reduction, and toxin removal you need to feel your best.
#3 – Tune into your body and give it what it needs to feel your best all the time.
Your body holds all of the answers you need, and it always has, but we’ve been conditioned to disconnect from our body and to search externally for solutions. When something doesn’t feel right in your body, it’s your body asking you to pay attention, to tune into what it’s trying to tell you. When you do, you’ll know what to do to feel your best all the time.
Have you ever noticed that when you have a stressful day you experience the following: your stomach gets upset, you experience joint pain, you 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 to pay attention to something.
For a long time, I dealt with and ignored joint pain, severe seasonal allergies, weight struggles, migraines, cyclical breast tenderness, fatigue, and much more.
Looking back, I can clearly see that 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 things that are common as normal, but just because something is common does NOT mean it’s normal.
Now if my body feels “off” in any kind of way, I tune it; check to see what it needs and give it just that.
This could mean eating something differently, canceling obligations to rest, getting some fresh air, doing meditation, or simply drinking some water. Whatever my body needs, I’ve got its back, and it’s got mine.
The health and aging concerns you are facing today are not your destiny. They are an accumulation of things that have happened over your lifetime which have slowly chipped away at that “feel good” feeling until you barely recognize yourself anymore.
With these 3 steps, you can unravel the doings of time and reveal the REAL YOU.
These 3 steps have helped me personally overcome:
- Skin cancer
- Mold illness
- Stubborn weight
- Afternoon energy dips
- Painful irregular periods
- Severe seasonal allergies
- Estrogen dominance and cystic acne
And these steps have also paved a bright, healthy future for me as I turn 40. I’m excited to keep living my life to the fullest as I grow older. The best years are in front of me.
