How To Avoid Health Issues Stemming From Bacterial Overgrowth

How To Avoid Health Issues Stemming From Bacterial Overgrowth

Is bacterial overgrowth causing your health issues?

When we think about our health, we don’t always consider that digestive issues could be the root cause. But I have to agree with Hippocrates who said, “All disease begins in the gut.”

Are you aware that you have about 10 times the amount of bacterial cells than human cells? A lot of this bacteria is in our gut where we digest our food. However, if the bacteria is overgrown in the wrong place or in the wrong amounts, it can wreak havoc on our health.

But if the bacteria is working in the right direction, then it can actually be very beneficial. The key to all of this is balance. So how do you avoid health issues stemming from bacterial overgrowth? Let’s dive in!

7 Tips To Avoid Health Issues Stemming From Bacterial Overgrowth

Topics of digestion and the gut can be difficult to comprehend. For instance, our digestive system can cause symptoms that aren’t even related to digestion. 

When you think of digestive issues, you likely think of bloating, constipation, diarrhea, and indigestion. You may even think about disease processes like celiac, Crohn’s disease, colitis, or irritable bowel syndrome. 

What you may not know is that an unhealthy gut can negatively impact your liver, your immune system, and even your brain. In fact, the gut has the ability to impact every organ system in a positive or negative way.

It’s important to realize that an unhealthy gut can show up in several forms. Some of these include:

  • Vitamin and mineral deficiencies
  • Brain fog
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Skin issues
  • Hormone imbalance
  • Food cravings
  • And more

When I work with clients, we address the microbiome imbalance. And when we do, the body begins to heal.

Do the symptoms listed above feel far too familiar to your everyday life? You can find relief to start living a healthy, happy, and whole life. Fill out my application to see if you and I will be a good fit to work together in taking back the authority on your health.

Hippocrates said it well, but I’d like to add that if all disease begins in the gut, then that’s where healing must begin too.

To help you, I’m sharing a number of things that I’ve learned from experience to help build a healthy gut naturally.

1. Remove Inflammatory Foods

Processed foods or foods that you have sensitivities to are causing inflammation every time you consume them. If you know you’re reacting to a certain food, then simply remove it from your diet. Whole foods – the ones God made – should make up the bulk of your diet.

2. Chew Your Food

No matter what you’re eating, chew your food to the consistency of salsa. Doing this helps release digestive enzymes into the food, which helps you break down the food for better digestion. Your stomach doesn’t have teeth, so this is the mouth’s job. Furthermore, digestive enzymes are released in the mouth, not the gut.

3. Keep Your Bowels Moving

It’s important to make sure your bowels are moving. If you struggle with constipation, there are some tricks that can help naturally. Try to implement neural activation techniques like gargling, singing, or deep breathing. These exercises wake up your brain and remind it of its role in intestinal mobility.

4. Address Bacterial Overgrowth

If you have bacterial overgrowth, then you’re going to want to work to bring those bacteria into balance. This may be a great time to bring in healing herbs or probiotics to do the job. This depends on your unique situation.

Are you struggling with bacterial overgrowth in your gut? Let’s take charge of your health and get to the root of the problem together. Reach out to Chelsie Ward Wellness and complete the application so we can customize a plan that will work for you.

5. Heal The Leaky Gut

It’s not a question of whether you have a leaky gut… The question is, how bad is the leaky gut? We all deal with stress, and when you consider the inorganic foods, medications, environmental toxins, or  infections – those make things worse. When we work to restore the gut lining, this helps prevent inflammation in the body. Additionally, this can prevent other disease processes from occurring.

6. Ensure Optimal Stomach Acid

Making sure you have optimal amounts of stomach acid to prevent future infection or bacterial overgrowth. Optimal amounts of stomach acid also ensures better digestion. You can improve stomach acid on a regular basis by consuming foods like ginger, apple cider vinegar, lemon, and fermented foods. 

Indigestion after meals can be a sign that you have low stomach acid. To find out, you can use apple cider vinegar as a test. If taking a small dose before meals improves indigestion, then it’s a sign that you may have low stomach acid.

7. Eat A Balanced Diet

Using the principles listed above, you can create balance in your diet. Health is not about deprivation. In reality, it is more about making good choices 90% of the time and leaving yourself 10% wiggle room once you’ve reached your goals. This gives you the freedom to be human and allows you to remain in health.

You’re Created For More Than Dealing With Gut Issues

New bacteria are being discovered inside our gut every day. While we’re learning more and more about these new species, we will likely never know everything. 

But bringing balance to your gut is simple. Focus on maintaining a good healthy diet, reduce physical and emotional stress, use supplements to support as needed. 

Infections and viruses, even things like the common cold and flu, can influence our gut health. But the stronger the gut is, the stronger our immune system will be.

Ready To Honor Your Body & Live The Life God Intended For You?

Contrary to popular belief, you can’t improve your gut health by simply taking probiotics and increasing your vegetables. This is why so many people feel worse after changing their diet. Oftentimes, we are adding more bacteria to an already overgrown system – which causes more bloating, constipation, and gas, making the imbalance worse.

I have an entire program devoted to reestablishing the gut microbiome in a healthy way to improve the health of the entire body. Not only does it include healing for your body, but it also supports your mind and emotions. If you’re ready for a true transformation, complete this short but necessary application process to see if you are a good fit for this program.

6 Ways To Heal Your Gut & Improve Your Digestive Health

6 Ways To Heal Your Gut & Improve Your Digestive Health

Are you one of the millions of Americans suffering from daily gut-related symptoms?

I was one of those millions – suffering for years. Gas, bloating, cramping, constipation, diarrhea, and heartburn ruled my life. 

While this may be your reality (like it is for many of the people I meet with on a regular basis), you don’t have to live this way. It is possible to heal your gut and improve your digestive health. 

I did it! Now it’s your turn.

6 Ways To Heal Your Gut & Improve Your Digestive Health

When I was told I had Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), I left my doctor’s office with medication. Yet, I still suffered for many years. As a matter of fact, I struggled with gut issues for almost 30 years. 

Knowing what I know now, we can actually get to the root of the problem instead of attempting to mask the symptoms. When someone comes to me with an IBS diagnosis, I know they likely have any of the following:

  • Leaky gut syndrome or intestinal permeability
  • Pathogens such as parasites, bacteria, yeast, or fungus
  • Food sensitivities or allergies

And these are only the gut-related issues many clients suffer from! 

If IBS goes on long enough, the problems only get worse. By the time a person reaches me, they usually have some other diagnosis along with IBS that may or may not be related to the digestive system.Tired of the trial and error in correcting your digestive symptoms? Reach out to me to get to the root of the problem and find relief.

The Key To Improving Your Digestive Health

Digestion starts with the food you consume on a regular basis. Our bodies require certain vitamins, minerals, and amino acids to function properly. And we get these vital nutrients from whole foods.

When we eat a lot of packaged and processed foods, the digestive system breaks down – leading to poor health. Once this happens, you can expect other health issues to occur. 

But what if eating whole foods can solve all your problems?

The truth is, it totally works for some people.

But what if eating whole foods doesn’t work for you?

How To Improve Your Digestive Health

If healing your gut is important to you, then keep these 6 tips in mind to start living a full life without chronic digestive health issues.

1. Avoid Unnecessary Anti-Inflammatories

The next time you’re feeling a little off, don’t be so quick to consume anti-inflammatory medication. The reason being, they thin the lining of your gut. Instead, there are natural remedies that you can take instead as an anti-inflammatory (i.e. Boswellia Phytosome).

2. Don’t Rely On Antacids

While antacids do usually make things better in the short term, they actually worsen symptoms in the long term. This is because antacids interfere with hydrochloric acid production. Moreover, most indigestion is related to low stomach acid, not high. Understanding what’s causing your acid reflux or pain is key.

Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is a good way to test your acid levels at home. If you have regular indigestion after meals, then simply take a tablespoon of ACV in water about 20 minutes before meals. This can help by improving hydrochloric acid production. After trying this method, if you notice an improvement in indigestion, then you likely have low acid. 

Furthermore, stomach acid naturally decreases with age. So I teach my clients a way to self-test on a yearly basis once they complete a full gut restoration program.

3. Reduce Stress

Stress not only weakens the intestinal lining, but it negatively impacts almost every organ system in the body. Studies have shown over and over how stress causes breakdowns in our system(s).

My clients complain that digestive issues are worse during high-stress times. One of my favorite ways to calm the nervous system and improve bowel movements is by using castor oil packets. This one is my favorite.

4. Don’t Mix Grains And Fruit

If you must eat grain, do not combine it with fruit. Eating these two foods together can cause fermentation. This leads to gas and bloating. 

If you have a weakened gut lining or an overgrowth of bacteria or yeast, then you’re asking for trouble by mixing grains and fruit.Do you need help figuring out which foods are causing you digestive pain and other issues? I can help! I can customize a plan that works for you.

5. Eat The Fresh Fiber On Your Plate First

Raw vegetables require a lot of chewing, which produces digestive enzymes in the mouth. When we eat these, it helps to prepare our bodies to digest heavier foods like meat proteins. 

So the next time you look at your plate, choose fiber-rich foods (i.e. vegetables) first.

6. Invest In The Right Tests

Understandably, many of my clients want to see what their food sensitivities are, along with other advanced health markers. This information allows my clients to get the root of their health issues instead of putting out health fires every time they arise. Not to mention, it’s what I’m known for.

Food sensitivity testing is one of the most simple ways to identify and eliminate foods that may be causing inflammation in your body. I wouldn’t say it’s my first go to test, but a lot of the self-healers out there are always asking me about my favorite food sensitivity test. While I only use food sensitivity testing in specific areas, all tests are not all created equal. However, you can access my favorite food sensitivity test here.

Honor Your Body & Put Calorie Counting To Rest

Honor Your Body & Put Calorie Counting To Rest

Are you still counting calories?

If the answer is yes, then feel free to use this blog as permission to never count another calorie again. Now that we’ve given you freedom from calorie counting, let’s dive into this topic!

You’ve lived by the idea that as long as you burn more calories than you consume, you’ll either lose or maintain your weight. How’s that working out for you?

With your newfound freedom from counting calories, it’s time to learn how to honor your body and put calorie counting to rest.

 

Honor Your Body & Put Calorie Counting To Rest

Our bodies are not calculators. There is a big difference between the 100 calories from broccoli and those from snack packs filled with junk. While both contain 100 calories, they each send different signals to the body. When we consume nutrients, the body knows what to do with them. However, when we consume processed foods with preservatives filled with junk that was never intended to fuel the body, it sends a completely different message. Are you ready to put calorie counting to rest?

The Calorie Counting Days Are Behind Me

A question I often hear is, “How many calories should I eat?” 

Or people may tell me, “I don’t eat this certain food because it has too many calories.”

I remember the days of counting calories. App trackers told me exactly how many calories I was eating. And I nearly killed myself to make sure I was in a deficit each day. Each morning, I would wake up and see a certain number on the scale. If I didn’t like the number, I’d get frustrated and restrict my food intake for the entire day. Through the struggle of restricting food, I had hope that the scale would move in the other direction. Does the number on the scale dictate how you enjoy life? Connect with me for a holistic approach to healing your body.

Throwing Out The Scale

Why do we get so obsessed with a number on the scale? 

And why do we give calories so much credit?

These are questions I finally started to ask myself after realizing the scale was often dictating how I’d feel for an entire day. And if I messed up on my calorie counting, I felt so guilty by the end of the day. 

That’s when I finally decided to throw my scale away and stop counting calories.

Not only do I feel so much more freedom, but I’m leaner and happier with my physique than I ever was before. 

You truly can get better with age! I am living proof.

Breaking The Vicious Cycle

By the time I connect with my clients, they are in that same cycle I experienced years prior. They’re on the scale every day, allowing it to dictate how they show up in the world. And they’re starving themselves for the sake of losing weight. 

This undoubtedly leads to an unhealthy obsession with weight and food. So where do you go from here?

You’ve already tried everything. If counting calories doesn’t work, then what will?

As I mentioned above, the body is not a calculator. And every time we eat, we are sending a signal to the body. After all, the body needs to know what to do with and without food. We need certain vitamins, minerals, amino acids, healthy fats, and even a little glucose for the body to have what it needs to function optimally on a daily basis. Are you exhausted from the vicious cycle that calorie counting has put you through? Let’s take control of your health together. Reach out to me for a healthy, happy, and whole you.

Why Counting Calories Isn’t Realistic Or Healthy

Here are the reasons you fail when your focus is on the calories:

1. Fad Diets Are Not Sustainable

You’ll fall for fad diets, which are not sustainable. For example, you may try keto. But if you’re like most people, you end up eating way too much protein and not enough life-giving fruits and vegetables. And it drains your body of energy.

In my program, clients are eating fruit twice a day and are still getting into ketosis. I know that goes against the keto rules, but I like to make my own rules.

2. You’re Not Focusing On Decreasing Toxins And Inflammation

Foods like beets, dandelion greens, lemon, and grapefruit are great for the liver. They’re important in helping you reduce toxins in your body. 

This is just one example of whole foods providing the body what it needs to heal. When you’re focused on calories, you may end up eating too many of those packaged foods that claim to be healthy, but they actually lead to additional inflammation.

3. Your Blood Sugar Isn’t Balanced

You find yourself crashing after meals. Or you’re having cravings because you haven’t fueled your body appropriately.

We can’t eat dead food and expect it to give us life. You want a whole food approach to balancing your blood sugar and eliminating cravings. Download my free guide here to learn what to eat and how much to eat to improve your blood sugar and metabolism.

4. You Don’t Have The Right Mindset

There is a huge psychological component that is much bigger than willpower alone. If you’re dependent on willpower, then you’ll fail every time and end up engaging in self-sabotaging behaviors.

When you’re nourishing your body appropriately, you will likely eat fewer calories. You get into trouble when you feel a need to count calories. That usually means you’re eating the wrong foods.

Ready To Reclaim Your Health?

You know those dreams you’ve tucked away? 

You can have those.

And I can help you experience victory. The best part? Calorie counting will have nothing to do with it!By ridding your body of toxins and getting to the emotional root of what’s holding you back, you can become happy, healthy, and whole.

Slowing Down To Bring Joy & Wellness Into Your Life

Slowing Down To Bring Joy & Wellness Into Your Life

When was the last time you took a moment to simply be present?

Being present is one of our greatest superpowers, and we don’t use it enough.

We constantly run from one thing to the next. Then when we feel a loss of control over our lives, we blame it on the never-ending hurry to check the next thing off our to-do list.

Rather than taking time to simply be quiet and still in the mornings, we rush and add stress to an already ill-prepared day. Many of us have decided that rest should only happen during the night while we’re sleeping. But when we learn to slow down, joy and wellness will come to us naturally.

Slowing Down To Bring Joy & Wellness Into Your Life

When the mornings start out in a rush, it sets the tone for the entire day. If we don’t have the time to prepare lunch, we may end up munching on a pack of crackers or vending machine snacks to get us through the day. Or if time allows, we might grab something from a healthy-ish looking restaurant. 

With kids in every activity known to man, cooking a life-giving dinner for the family feels like a far-off dream. So once again we swing through the drive-thru and put dead food into our bodies instead. Honestly, we’re too exhausted to cook anyways. 

Then we look around the house. It’s a disaster. No one offers to help. We find ourselves wondering how we could possibly go through so much laundry. When is the last time the sheets were washed anyways? 

And how, after eating out all day, are there still stacks of dirty dishes? The stress spirals as we go through another chaotic day.

Falling From The Chaos

When we constantly run from one appointment to the next, it feels like we’re barely keeping up. We want to live a life of purpose, but we’re doing our best to simply keep up with the day-to-day demands.

We know our bodies deserve more. But our unhealthy bodies remain in the back of our minds all day every day. We’re not certain how to add any more tasks to the chaos of our already hectic schedules.

So again, we push health to the side. We tell ourselves we’ll do better at some point. 

Until we inevitably end up sick. 

Going non-stop could land us in bed for a week. 

Or worse, the hospital. 

Illness is a wake-up call to the seriousness of things you’ve been putting off. It’s time to take a break. We have to start slowing down. And we must get some help around the house. 

We didn’t have time to get everything done before we were sick. Now things are much worse. 

But what if it all could have been prevented?

What if our crazy, hectic lives are the very things driving illness?

Do you believe it’s that simple?

I’m here to tell you from my experience, it is!

Are you ready to put a stop to chaos dictating your life? I know how you’re feeling because I’ve been there. Fill out my application today to start working towards a better you.

Dedicating Ourselves To A Life With Purpose

Even still, there are times in my life when I feel like everything is falling apart. And other times, I feel like everything is coming together and falling into place. 

The difference is not what is actually taking place in my life. After all, mundane, day-to-day life isn’t what brings us joy.

Instead, it is how we experience day-to-day life that brings us either stress or joy. We can actually be going through the very same life, but a different attitude can result in experiences of stress or joy.

The key is taking time to get quiet. And in the hustle and bustle of what we’ve deemed normal life, getting quiet is something we’ve failed to do.

Choosing Health & Joy For Our Lives

Perspective can perpetuate either joy or stress. I see this happen so clearly in my own life, but I also see this happen in my clients’ lives.

Health is in everything we do. When we level up in our health, we not only feel better, but it impacts everything we do. Here are a few examples:

  • Finances. When we’re healthier, our brains work better. This quickly translates to having more energy and no longer calling in sick to work because of exhaustion. Instead, we show up and possibly get a raise.
  • Relationships. Getting healthy results in feeling good and balancing our hormones. It’s suddenly a little easier to get in the mood to be intimate with your spouse. Finishing the workday and having energy means it’s possible to entertain the idea of enjoying time with friends. And when the day doesn’t leave you frazzled, it’s much easier to love your children the way they should be loved.
  • Physical body. This seems obvious, but getting healthy makes our bodies stronger. Have you imagined if you actually have the strength in your physical body to help save another person? Or on a simpler scale, a healthy body could mean rolling down a hill with your children or grandchildren. The opportunities to enjoy an active life open up.
  • Emotions. There’s a huge connection between your gut and brain. If you’re feeding your body junk, then it’s going to impact your brain in a negative way. Poor diet and lack of exercise are both scientifically proven to be associated with poor mental health.

Can you see how your health literally impacts every area of your life? 

What in your life are you giving up each time you choose to push your health aside?

Allow Yourself To Slow Down

If I can convince you of one thing today, allow me to sell you on the fact that you need to slow down. 

Recently, I went on a personal adventure that I call 30 days of yoga. It transformed me. When I started, I felt something shift for good.

Suddenly, I began allowing myself to slow down more. I also began to take time to appreciate nature, truly hear it, and submerge myself in it when I walked outdoors.

Although I didn’t realize it at the time, there was a time in my life when I was taking the steps just to check them off my list. I did enjoy it, but I wasn’t truly immersing myself in the moment. 

It makes such a difference to truly learn to be still and quiet while enjoying the present moment. 

When we truly slow down, life no longer seems like it’s passing us by like a flash of light. Are you ready to make changes, but don’t want to do it alone? Fill out my application so that we can work together to bring you peace and wellness.

Learn To Embrace The Moment

When clients tell me how stressed they are, one of my first couple of questions to ask is, “What does your morning routine look like? How often are you meditating, praying, getting out in nature, or doing something more centering and grounding to your soul?”

I’ve had clients respond that they are doing all these things but are still stressed to the max. So my next piece of advice is to stop doing them as a duty or part of a daily routine. Instead, truly immerse your mind and your emotions into the activity. Get lost in it until it becomes a way of life for you. 

Two people can have identical health routines but have two different experiences. This all has to do with the way they approach the routines. 

When you immerse yourself into a healthy lifestyle, you’ll no longer be yo-yo-ing up and down on the scale. Cheat days will no longer leave you feeling guilty. And you’re going to notice that your stressors start to look a little less stressful.

Are You Willing To Slow Down Before Life Slows You Down?

This is exactly what I help my clients do. With my help, my clients are able to go from chaos to peace in their health so that they can make a bigger impact in this world.

If you’re ready to truly invest in your future self with no hesitation, complete my application today

The longer you wait, the less likely it is that you’ll ever take action. Over the past month, I’ve seen three people enter the hospital because they said no to their health and avoided slowing down. Not only are they still sick, but it also impacted them financially. What if you could spend less money getting well? Would you do it? Take the first step to living a life worth living by completing my intake application. Start slowing down with me today to experience joy and wellness!

5 Keys to Build a Strong Foundation For A Healthy Weight And Metabolism

Do you have dreams of doing big things with your life? 

You know you were created to make a big impact in this world. But there’s something stopping you from going forward – maybe your weight, metabolism, energy, hormones, or gut. It’s natural that you have a little bit of disconnect.

But if it’s not managed properly, it can spiral into deeper, more harmful emotional issues like depression or anxiety. You may even feel you’re in a constant state of stress.

The reason I do it is because I care, because I was once just like you.

My health, or lack thereof, dominated my life at one time. Every decision I made was based on whether or not I would have enough energy to do it. I would also wonder if there was going to be a bathroom close enough for me to deal with an unforeseen emergency. I hope you don’t know what that’s like. But many of my clients do.

I was ruled by sugar addiction, antibiotics several times per year, doctor bills, and loads of medications. Moreover, I was going to the pharmacy every single month to fill my bag of prescriptions. 

But I wasn’t getting well.

I understand your pain. To help, I’ve put together the 5 keys to build a strong foundation for a healthy weight and metabolism – the start of good health.

The impact you were created to make is too important. 

Imagine your life one year from today.

If you do nothing different, what is that going to look like? Will you have the energy you need to play with your kids? Will you still be holding down the job that you’re always late for because you lack the energy to get up on time? 

Also consider your relationships. Will you continue to put off intimacy with your spouse and keep canceling plans with friends? All because you just don’t feel like it? How will your children and grandchildren remember you?

I want to see a different story play out for you.

Taking Your Life Back By Understanding What Your Body Needs

My client, Cheryl, found herself sitting on the couch everyday wishing her life was different. She had dreams and plans for her future to start a Ministry and become an author. She also wanted to enjoy her husband and children more. But she had no drive to accomplish these dreams. 

She would find herself sitting on the couch all day until her husband and children returned home from work and school. Then, she would peel herself off the couch in the evening to cook dinner.

Cheryl was stressed, exhausted, carrying 50 pounds of excess weight, and was a little moody because of her hormone imbalance. She was so confused about all the health advice out there. She had tried everything she knew and heard of, but nothing was changing. 

At 50 years old, she knew this wasn’t what she wanted for the rest of her life and that she had to do something different. She began to cry out for answers.

When Cheryl and I first had a conversation, I asked if she would let me help her. Cheryl didn’t know if she had the finances and was skeptical if this would be any different than what she had tried in the past. But when we spoke, she was filled with hope for the first time in a long time. 

Does Cheryl’s story remind you of yourself? Reach out to me today to start working towards a life worth living.

1. Address The Underlying Root

There is a difference between addressing symptoms versus repairing “the root.” Most people focus on things they can see, instead of focusing on the roots of the underlying conditions. Oftentimes, the root is poor sleep habits, toxins, negative thoughts, lack of exercise, poor diet, and inflammation. Most people tend to focus on the labels of disease or diagnosis. This can be obesity, allergies, irritable bowel syndrome, depressions, diabetes, PCOS, autoimmune disease, and more.

But when you focus on the disease, you’ll end up fighting symptoms. Being drawn to fad diets, pills, and detoxes won’t give you the results you want. It’s important to remember, health is not one-size-fits-all.

If you focus on the root, you’ll strengthen your organs, bring balance into your entire body, and rid yourself of symptoms as a side effect. Addressing the underlying root brings hormones, energy, and metabolism into balance.

2. Eat Right For Your Body

It’s important to figure out which foods are right for your body. Doing so allows your body to function at its potential, gives you freedom from cravings, and rids the uncertainty around what to eat. 

When you don’t understand how to eat right for your metabolism, you’ll mindlessly follow every new fad diet out there. Then, you’ll needlessly obsess over the scale. It will dictate how you show up in the world because the number isn’t going in the direction you planned for and want so badly. 

Once you understand how to eat right for your metabolism, things start to feel right. Meals will leave you satisfied, mood stabilizes, blood sugar becomes balanced, cravings go away, and you’ll no longer feel like you’re crashing after meals. Is your relationship with food a constant battle? Get in touch with me so that we can start uncovering why the cycle continues and get you on a path towards healing change.

3. Uncover Hidden Stress

When considering daily stressors, you likely think about mental and emotional stress. However, we have to think about other hidden stressors. 

Hidden stressors require additional investigation. This means hiring someone with experience to look at your hormones, immune system, digestion, detoxification, energy pathways, and nervous system. Understanding these stressors will give you better insight into what is causing certain symptoms or disease processes to show up in your body. 

If you’re not addressing the hidden stress, then you’ll miss out on the big picture. You won’t be able to get rid of those nagging symptoms. Conventional wisdom doesn’t address the “why.” Instead it focuses on the diagnosis more than getting to the root. But it’s the root of your diagnosis that actually gives you the most powerful answers to address your unique needs so that you can finally heal.

4. Heal Your Body From The Inside Out

This world we live in is very toxic. If you don’t clean our cells the right way, then your entire body will begin to suffer. Chronic disease is a result of bodies that are sick on a cellular level. By not fully implementing what your body needs to optimize cellular health, you will never reach your true health potential. This is why so many people yo-yo up and down on the scale. 

I’ll go ahead and caution you here by stating that “detox in a box” is not that answer. Instead, you must have all the tools you need for this process to fully work for you in your body. 

But once you get this right, your body will release toxins stored in your fat. And only then will your body feel safe enough to release excess body fat. The thyroid controls about 20% of your weight gain, weight loss, and energy. Once your thyroid is functioning optimally, your body will balance your body weight naturally. Furthermore, you’ll get rid of excess hormones like estrogens that may be causing your weight gain, hot flashes, and bloating.

5. Invest In Yourself

If you’re anything like I used to be, you want a direct path to success. You want someone to help you sift through the loads of misinformation. Then, you want a roadmap for your unique needs. No one speeds up the path to success by doing it alone. That’s why hiring a mentor who was once JUST LIKE YOU is so important. 

If you choose to do this alone, you’re risking your success. Not only that, but you’ll continue on the path you’re on now. The guessing will continue about how to get the results you desire. Countless dollars will be spent on things that may or may not get the results you need. Moreover, you’ll be adding years to your frustration. When you’re trapped in this cycle, you may even give up on your goals completely. You may lose faith that health and happiness is possible for you. 

I’ve been there. 

And so has Cheryl. 

What you need is someone to encourage, support, and believe in you. Especially when you’re not believing in yourself. You need someone to remain passionate about helping you create a life you love. To help you focus on the pieces that matter most for your unique situation. Someone to hold you accountable for what you SAY you’re going to do. 

A great mentor helps you try new things, take risks, and gets you out of your comfort that is holding you back. Even better, a great mentor teaches you to learn to trust yourself and let go of negative baggage. This is someone who welcomes your thoughts, fears, feelings, failures, and secret yearnings without judgement.

Trusting The Process To Finally Heal & See Results

Through my process, Cheryl was able to lose 55 pounds and keep it off! Her hormones came into balance naturally. She achieved her dream of becoming an author of Letting God Lead. Cheryl is now a successful woman in the Ministry who leads others to live a healthy lifestyle so they can do what they are called to do. 

Cheryl is one of the greatest testimonies of living a life of health so that you can be successful in your finances, relationships, and every area of your life. Now, she is living the life that she could only imagine from her place on the couch just a few short years ago. 

I know Cheryl would never argue if I said health is your greatest asset. Because, it truly is. 

You have a choice today. And your life and impact is too important for you to put this off! Afterall, you only get one chance. Don’t waste it sitting on the couch because you simply don’t feel like doing anything different. Because, you don’t get to do it over later. 

Live your dreams. 

Be the mom and wife and friend you want to be. 

And be that person because you feel like, not because you have to be.
