Here are the juicy goods about me..
I am a 32 years old wife and mother with three boys – ages 6, 10, & 13. I am a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, Business & Mindset Coach and I run a successful online business community for nutritionists called the Holistic Nutrition Hub. I live in Switzerland with my husband (he is Swiss) and our youngest son (50% Swiss, 50 % Canadian). We moved over here a year ago from Canada where my husband and I met (I am the Canadian one). A since then I have been trying to find a way to balance my life, my desires, my family, and my fibromyalgia.
I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia a little over 6 years ago now, but depending on the doctors I speak or listen to, I most likely have been suffering from it since I was a young teenager.
As a Holistic Nutritionist, I have tried to look at every approach to Fibromyalgia to find the best way of living with it. I have taken deep dives down into internet rabbit holes, looking for support, and more importantly, ANSWERS!
I became pretty frustrated with always coming up empty-handed in the traditional sense. So, I decided to turn off the negative chatter (phone, internet, and my mind!) and start listening to myself for a while.
What was it that I REALLY needed, where did I WANT to go, what was I MEANT to do now? What would make this BETTER?
Here is what I figured out along the way:
Fibromyalgia can be a blessing or it can be a curse.
I am not offering a panacea cure here, and sorry I don’t have an easy road approach, but what I am offering is an approach to Fibromyalgia that not many people are talking about – letting it TEACH you!
Through AVA, I am hoping and attempting to pass on everything I have learned and will continue to learn for all of us.
My coaching approach includes nourishing the body, mind, and soul – with a bit of tough, but gentle love and lots of laughter!
I know it can be hard to see from one side to the other side some days, but the trick is to find balance within your life.
Stick around and I’ll show you how to find YOUR VOICE behind Fibromyalgia!
