If you've struggled with anxiety, you know it is life consuming. On the low end, it could be periodic anxious feelings - rapid heartrate, sweating, a pending feeling of doom. On the high end of anxiety can come full blown panic attacks that can be your body's alert system saying something needs to change. Anxiety can feel overwhelming. You tend to be stuck in your mind thinking of worst case scenarios. You may find yourself withdrawing from people, snapping at those who interrupt your focused thoughts. You know it is not living your best life when anxious feelings consume the majority of your time. Many suffering from anxiety are rarely present and miss out on so much of their life and time with others. These anxious feelings can ruin your career, your relationships, and your health if you do not get it under control. Through our coaching sessions we will explore ways to manage your anxiety, uncover nutritional contributing factors, and find ways to help relax, de-stress, and manage your anxiety so you can actually enjoy life again. Session offered: 60 min. / $150
MY LIFE EXPERIENCES
For more than 15 years, I suffered from leaky gut, anxiety and depression. After working many years in corporate public relations and marketing I started to experience several negative side effects from stress, unhealed emotions, and food and lifestyle choices. I just did not feel well and experienced daily bloating, irritability, headaches and weight gain. I was still working out daily, just did not feel myself and the scale was not moving despite my efforts. After receiving a basic food allergy test, I discovered that I had several food sensitivities. From there, I was able to eliminate triggering foods from my diet but still needed to work through the stress, anxiety and depression I was often feeling. After years of taking various anti-anxiety and depression medications and being hospitalized for treatment, I knew that I needed to find a holistic, integrative and natural route for healing.
That’s when I enrolled in the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, New York NY and began my quest to integrate body, mind and spirit for total wellness. I discovered I could heal my body and feel better via nutrition but I also needed to do emotional and spiritual cleansing and rejuvenation in order to feel my very best. One area out of balance, effects all areas as does unhealed trauma, emotional pain and situations that are unresolved from our childhoods. I now lead a holistic lifestyle and have been off medications for more than five years. I have naturally healed from leaky gut, anxiety and depression and I now offer my services and integrative approach to clients interested in doing the same.

"Before my cleanse, I was eating so much junk food and feeling terrible about my body. After my cleanse, I was not as hungry, more energy and clearer skin and realized I did not need the junk food. I feel so much better about my body and how I look and feel. I am most proud that I don't crave bad food anymore. Thanks to Michelle, I am able to see how food can make such a huge difference in the way I feel." - Ashlyn
