"I truly appreciate you and the work that you are doing! I was thinking yesterday on my drive home how last year I was so very fed up with my struggle and I started looking for someone to help me. I didn't know WHAT I needed. In my searching and 'facebook stalking' of someone else, a suggestion for Real Food Wellness popped up in my side bar. I was literally like....hmmm, what is this? That led me to your website to read about you and as soon as I read your story, I knew that I needed to meet with you. It was honestly a God thing, fate, whatever you want to call it. My life is truly richer and freer because of you and everything you have taught me and worked through with me. It is literally like I have lost the chains that were holding my life and mind in a jail cell of sorts. It's super hard to describe. But I used to feel like a failure every day. Now I feel like an empowered woman who enjoys life."
We love Laura! We began working with her simply because we wanted to feel better.
In chaotic times, it's easy to make nutrition an afterthought. In her intuitive, personalized sessions, Laura keeps the focus on establishing achievable goals, implementing small changes on a consistent basis. These changes have now become daily habits that are an integrated and natural part of our lifestyle.
Laura's approach is based on instruction of how foods work naturally with body. In a maze of competing nutritional strategies, this is refreshing. Simple changes like shifting the time frame of our main meal and taking the time to chew have made a powerful difference in our energy levels, sleep patterns, and how we treat each other. Dropping a few pounds along the way has been an added bonus.
Laura's work with us is responsible for of the most significant shifts in our lives this past year.
And have her tell you about Coconut Coffee (with Cinnamon)!
"Hey Laura. I just wanted to give you a quick testimonial. I met with you in late spring, and was struggling to lose a few pounds that would just not leave my body. You had emphasized safety, and how if the body doesn't feel safe, you can't lose (or gain) weight. I continued to calorie count, work out often twice a day until I was exhausted. And this produced no weight loss. In fact I felt heavier. I do not weigh myself, but I couldn't feel or see any changes in my body. Then it hit me. I didn't want to spend my life like this. I didn't want to be a slave to marathon work it's and worrying about everything I ate. So I gave it up. I started working out less, incorporating one day of weight lifting and cardio a week for balance. Practicing yoga daily, which my body loves. And I just chose to eat things that made me feel good. I planned my lunches thinking "what will make me feel the best throughout my day, and not make me tired." The weight has been falling of me. I hardly noticed until my scrubs pants were falling off, and people kept asking me what I was doing. I have to thank you for planting the seeds of loving myself and finding a gentle and safe balance.
While they needed time to sprout, I feel so much more at ease in maintaining a healthy body without creating a constant inner turmoil."
