Hello! My name is Kristen and I am a Certified Holistic Health Practitioner and Certified Aromatherpist having studied with the American College of Health Sciences based in Portland, Oregon. I live in Raleigh, NC with my wonderful husband and three kids. I work full-time as a microbiologist with one of the top pharmceutical companies in the world. The purpose of my blog is to help others learn about proper food choices by giving advice, recipes, and the latest news hoping to reach out to the community and help others help themselves and turn their lives around by alleviating the negative conditions that affect them by the Standard American Diet (SAD).
Not long ago I suffered from depression, had a food additiction, drug addiction, was overweight, and severely fatigued. I knew I had to change myself and finally live the life I had always wanted to. I missed the feeling of lightness and happiness that came with chidlhood and longed to feel like that again. I knew that by taking good care of myself that I can age well with pride & joy which is my goal. I wanted to be able to feel vibrant, jump out of bed, and play with my children when I came home from work, made dinner, did dishes, and prepared to do it all over again. I wanted zest in my life and to marvel at each day again. I knew that it was completely MY choice on how I was living. I can choose to live the same way I had been accustomed to for the past decade or I can change it and enter my mid-30’s with some pizzazz. I also knew that what I fed myself had everything to do with how I felt and looked. In order to change on the outside I had to change on the inside and what I put into my body. After years of “practice” and studying, and figuring out how to do this while taking care of a family, I am ready to share what I’ve learned with you.
If you feel you need a change and want more happiness, pizzazz, and lightness again, allow me to be your support and guidance. Together we can make it happen; we can make the change you’ve longed for. Now is the time. Visit my contact page and email me for more information.
