A Solemn Commitment To Being Well.

After 31 years, and much time delving into who I am as a human being, I can say I know why I do what I do.

And one thing that I do when feeling insecure, unsafe, and overall out-of-alignment....I have a tendency to eat like sh*t!

Don't get me wrong, I am overall very conscious of what I put into my body for the most part. But sometimes...there are those moments where I slip. Where my eyes get taken off of the prize, and a chocolate frosted donut is the only solution. A butter croissant is the ticket to freedom. A protein-style burger from in-n-out is the best response to a stressful day.

But here's the kicker, I'm gluten intolerant & am passionate about maintaining a plant-based lifestyle. I graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition this year with a certification as an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, and I'm extremely empowered by this accomplishment.

When it comes to coaching others through their food dramas and dilemmas, I am spot on. I know the path to take, and the tools to use in order to gain freedom from food addictions/cravings. And when it comes to applying these foresights for myself, I have noticed a pattern that boldly shows my inconsistency in this area.

Wellness is such an important part of my life. There is diabetes on both sides of my family, alcoholism, fatty liver, cancer, glaucoma, Alzheimer's, dementia, etc. In essence, I'm almost destined for failure, just like so many of us in the Western world, moreover the U.S.A.

The "Standard American Diet" is extremely acidic, and ruled by foods that cause inflammation. Namely: gluten, dairy, meat, and processed foods.

Inflammation is the root of all disease: cystic fibroids, MS, Chron's disease, Diabetes, Cancer, Alzheimer's, COPD, asthma etc.

Moreover, 95% of Serotonin (also known as the "happy" chemical) is produced in the gut! So to say, you are what you eat, holds so much truth.

But here's the thing about humans, we can have all of the knowledge & still be so bound in our comfort zones that we continue to engage in behavior that is literally killing us. I.E. eating sh*tty food!

I've gone through such an intense transformation, and I truly feel becoming consistent in my nutritional wellness is the final piece for me. Like I said earlier, in general I am health conscious about my food consumption, but at times I struggle when I get distracted.

Kicking alcohol to the curb (currently 122 days free from this bond!) has been something I've been manifesting the strength to do for years. It has been a consistent routine, great coaching, a strong support system, and an undying love for myself that has prompted this total lifestyle transformation.

So I'm making a pledge to each and everyone of you. Make it public & make it known. I am completely committing my life to total freedom and optimization, moreover I am committing my life to nutritional wellness in a consistent & compassionate manner.

I'll be creating more posts on this subject as I continue on this powerful journey.

Are you in?
