June was self-care month for me! I’ve been wanting to do a detox for some time and, through my networking this past year, I met Melissa Deally, an integrative health coach who shares my personal health philosophy. Her approach is part functional medicine and part ayurvedic medicine. You’ll read more about Melissa in Wellness Changemakers We Love and Resources: Healthy Business, Healthy You.
My 3-week detox ended on Sunday and, I have to say, it was the best decision I’ve made for my health. Not only do a I feel great, I lost about 10 lbs, peri-menopausal hot flashes stopped (so now I’m sleeping through the night!), and mild joint pain is gone. I know I’ve strengthened my immune system by removing toxins and rebalancing my liver. Now I plan to do a weekly fast day and a quarterly detox for maintenance. I’m also thrilled to have some new plant-based recipes that are easy & delicious — pictured to the right: Red Lentil Dahl and Mediterranean Bowl.
My holistic, prevention-focused, find-the-root-cause approach to health began in my late teens when faced with devastating acne and not finding healing from the myriad of medications prescribed by traditional medicine practitioners. My skin cleared with the support of an allergist (whom I consider an early naturopathic doctor in the 80s). He was helping patients who had diabetes, colitis, migraines, chronic fatigue, skin conditions, and other health conditions that were not being resolved by traditional medicine. We found the root cause of our health concerns, and thus healing, through an elimination diet.
Following holistic health practitioners and content creators for many years, I am now using my business to support wellness entrepreneurs and businesses to reach more people with their life-transforming and life-saving information, products, and services. If you have any questions about doing a detox, fasting, or working with Melissa, please reach out. I LOVE to talk about health & wellness!
