I’ve wrestled with health issues the majority of my life since middle school, particularly with my weight. In my adult life, not only had the weight continued to be an obstacle, but I also muddled through several issues with my gut (chronic heartburn, daily bloating, occasional stomach pain, etc). I took a daily heartburn medication and a daily allergy medication for 20 years. I’ve walked in degrees of freedom off and on throughout my life, but was never able to sustain good health habits.
My journey to health and wholeness took a turn in the summer of 2015 when I ended up in the Emergency Room because of an infection in my gut. After talking to my longtime, dear friend Janie, my husband and I started with a 6-week clean eating detox (part of which was during our summer vacation!) that Janie put together for me in order to eliminate all of the inflammatory issues that commonly cause digestive issues. Until that time, I had no idea how much everything we eat effects our bodies! I felt incredible during the detox – no bloating, no stomach upset, and little to no heartburn (likely due to a hiatal hernia and my lack of a gall bladder). It was a whole new world!
As Janie had me reintroduce certain foods, I quickly discovered the primary culprits of my on-going battle – gluten, dairy, sugar, corn, red onion – who knew?? My husband and I immediately adjusted our eating habits and determined something that neither of us had ever lived by before when it came to food: no exceptions! It was a new day and a new way for us both. And, we love food, so it’s been the biggest blessing to discover we didn’t have to sacrifice great tasting food with clean eating. In fact, eating clean has enhanced our taste buds and food just tastes better now!
As a result of eating clean, continued health coaching with Janie, and consistent chiropractic care, I have been able to stop taking all medications, no longer have chronic heartburn or bloating, have lost 30+ pounds, and have great hope to live the length and quality of life that God intends for me to live!
Janie has literally rocked and rolled my world and eating: I feel educated, satisfied, comfortable in my own skin, and most of all I feel extremely grateful for the energy, time and care she puts into this and her passion for it is so evident!! Thank you, Janie! Really, it’s priceless. There is no limit on the price we would pay to leave a healthy legacy and inheritance!Amanda
I highly recommend working with Janie. She is an awesome coach and has helped me tremendously! Don’t put it off, do it now. You will not be sorry! I truly appreciate how much she has changed my life. Janie, you are a gift from God!Brenda
I have spent my entire life yoyo dieting with temporary success only to regain all my weight back and more. Working with Janie has filled my true desire that has always been underneath my failed diet attempts—and that is to change the way I eat for life. I have learned how to shop and cook different and you taught me what my body needs and how to identify that even if something is good for me, it doesn’t mean it is good for my body. I look forward to continuing to heal my body from the inside out. Thank you for your time, dedication and knowledge!Julie
