So.. I did a thing! <3
This past weekend, I spend 3 days in an intensive training to be a Certified Mental Wellness Coach! Whoo hoo!
For those of you who don't already know, I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the sate of Oregon AND an Integrative Mental Health Practitioner. What that means is I have a fairly solid knowledge about other elements of health, such as the impact of stress, diet and exercise as well as spiritual and somatic pieces that all influence MENTAL HEALTH. Many of these areas overlap with physical health as well, as really- you cannot separate the 2! I have the ability to "prescribe" for my clients, looking at those holistic areas and recommending specific supplements or products as a part of the client's treatment plan.
I LOVE this approach, as there are SO many pieces that are not looked at in our "health" care system. There are a lot of broken elements and many people don't find the answers they need because so many are only trained with a small lens of service. That may be fine in a specialized scope of practice or a very generalized way, but too many providers are looked at as an "expert" when really, their scope of knowledge is quite small.
I always find it alarming that our traditionally trained doctors only spend 1 day- ONE DAY- learning about nutrition as a part of their programs. ONE DAY to cover allllllll the options of "natural" remedies and how food and water, dehydration and more impact our health. So, it is no wonder we often become frustrated with our providers for their lack of knowledge or understanding!
I am THRILLED to be able to add this knowledge and more specific knowledge to my day to day clients as well as my coaching. I am a serious advocate for the natural whenever possible and, did you know? Almost ALL mental health disorders are NUTRITIONAL deficiencies!? So, depending on the lifestyle changes needed, MOST (if not ALL!) mental health issues can be limited or reduced completely through nutritional and lifestyle changes!
And, some, are super easy to implement!
I will share one trick with you...
ARE YOU READY???
Yep. You heard me!
That microbiome is responsible for the majority of the functioning of the systems in the body, INCLUDING MENTAL HEALTH.
I encourage you to check out the Mental Health Assessment below to see how your microbiome is doing! And, if you are experiencing any symptoms of mental health (anxiety, depression, moodiness, etc.) and/or other symptoms like: brain fog, low energy, insomnia or sleep issues, bloating, digestive concerns, or anything else that is less than optimal, LET"S CHAT!
-->FOR THE MONTH OF MAY, I am offering a HUGE Special on my Mental Wellness Coaching!
My goal- to help YOU Feel AMAZING! So, if you take that assessment and see a number you are not happy with, let's chat! No obligation but if it is a good fit, I will be taking on FOUR Coaching clients for FREE. There will likely be a small fee for whatever supplements recommended but I am charging NOTHING for my services for THREE MONTHS! (Go google your savings and come back here to message me! ;) )
You need to be "IN" before the end of the month... and ready to OPTIMIZE your health!
ARE YOU READY TO LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE?!?! LET"S DO THIS TOGETHER!
