My mission to empower people to heal

Habits to Healthy Blog Post 1

How many times have you been to the doctor, just to be told “everything looks normal” or “that’s just the way it will be?” Another medication prescribed to “fix” the problem. The truth is, our medical system uses a reactive approach that focuses on treating and masking symptoms, rather than getting to the root cause.

If you smell smoke in your home, do you want a fan to blow the smell away? Wouldn’t you rather dig deeper and spend the time to find the source of the smoke? The reality is, our healthcare system is not designed to encourage doctors to (a) spend this amount of time with patients, or (b) find the root cause.

I’m a pharmacist and I’ve been disappointed by our medical system countless times. I’ve battled chronic health issues with doctors shrugging off my symptoms and offering medications to treat my health issues. Unfortunately, this is the norm in our current medical system. I started to dig deeper and discovered a whole different world of medicine that isn’t taught in medical school, pharmacy school, nursing school, etc. A world that focuses on getting to the root cause of symptoms and rebalancing the dis-ease in our body naturally… to truly heal.

Did you know approximately 10-15% cases of cancer and chronic illness is related to genetics? So what’s the other 85-90%? Nutrition and lifestyle! As the research in epigenetics deepens, there’s evidence to suggest our diet and lifestyle are the primary drivers of our genes by turning certain genes off or on.

Wait… what? Y E S… A healthy diet and lifestyle may keep the bad genes turned off so, let’s keep them off, right?

I’m excited to share what I have learned to empower you to take charge of your health. Just remember, Rome wasn’t built in a day and this is also true with our health. We need a strong, solid foundation and the rest will fall into place. Let’s heal through empowerment and start getting into some healthy habits!
