Hi, my name is Suelen. I am a Certified Holistic Nutritional Practitioner with a focus on inflammation, weight loss and brain health….they’re all linked!
Everyone should aim to fill their life with their own version of happiness, and I believe a healthy body, brain and mind are tightly linked to that happiness.
My passion is to help people find their happiness through living healthy!
A little about my journey here….
Before I embraced a healthy lifestyle everything was different. My body was different, my brain was different, my mood was different.
I was told by doctors I had symptoms that were associated with lupus, which is an autoimmune disease. For me this meant constant pain in my fingers, wrists, arms and legs. It meant taking pain killers all the time. Then their was the diagnosis of endometriosis….more pain. And then, there was the negative mind sink. The hole I would sink into when anything bad happened was deep and dark.
But when I took the junk out of my life, which started with the crappy food I was eating, the holes weren’t so deep anymore, although at that time, apart from losing weight, the positive effects of changing how I ate just glossed over me.
The losing weight thing was HUGE though. That did not gloss over me at all! This little step alone of changing my diet very nicely shaved my weight. It started in 2010. I lost about 25 lbs and have kept it off.
The secret I started out with to do that was a “deeeeep desire” to make a change.
…and losing the weight was wonderful, but then….
My overall health took a drastic upward turn when I plunged wholeheartedly into fully embracing a healthy lifestyle which wasn’t just about getting rid of the junk in my environment but included consuming nutritious foods, removing many toxins from my life and incorporating life practices that helped me smile and be grateful. What I was doing was nourishing my body, brain and mind! This is where I found my clarity and where I was able to build my health, strength and resilience.
Let’s face it, life can throw many curve balls and people often find it difficult to find the strength to tackle those curves. The resilience needed to bounce back is often lost. Facing challenges and being triumphant over them is even more difficult when you’re not healthy.
A brain that isn’t functioning optimally increases the likelihood of you coming out at the other end of a bad situation demotivated and torn.
A body that cannot function optimally increases the risk of a lifetime of ill-health and suffering.
Often, the suffering is not from just physical pain but also the emotional pain from physical limitations…I am familiar with both.
The curve balls and the wounds they leave can feel like there is no coming back. But what has been clear to me is the difference in my reactions, responses and perspective as I have been moving along the journey of a healthy life. Now when faced with challenges my inner reactions, outward responses and my perspective are different; they are healthy. This is the result of living on the path of holistic wellness. It’s not just about diet. It’s about nourishing your body, your brain, your mind.
I have no doubt that you can live healthy, feel good and be happy too.
