I am Janette and I have been on an amazing, and sometimes difficult, journey that made me realize just how much the foods we eat affect our sense of well being and health.
How do I know? I, like many people, struggled with weight after I had children. And sporadically, suffered from acne ranging from mild to painful cystic acne. After a while, I assumed what was happening was due to my age because, let's face it, who actually gets younger? I blamed genetics because, what else could it be?
I love a good food challenge and decided to go vegetarian a few years ago, and then vegan but I still struggled. Later, the same year, I did a complete 360 turn and went low-carb and felt better. But not great. After additional health issues, a few visits to the E.R., and visits with five seemingly unconcerned doctor, I took matters into my own hands. I decided I did not want to carry around an Epi Pen or live with prescribed lotions and pills to help me manage my issues. I actually had a doctor tell me that if he were experiencing what I was, and finding relief with the medications, he would be happy. That made me mad. And sad. So I began researching the role diet plays in our lives. I devoured information and implemented changes in my life and those of my family. And we saw amazing results: reduced anxiety in one child (including a clear up of eczema), to a disappearance of headaches (or migraines, in my husband's case). Across my family, we saw a reduction of allergy symptoms and I found we were all less tired in the morning and had steady energy levels throughout the day. As a bonus, we lost weight while eating nutrient-powerful foods. And eating a lot.
The food you eat DOES matter. And much, much more than you think. There is no quick fix, magic tea or manufactured pill that will do the work of nutrient-powerful diet. And while a 'one-size-fits-all' plan does not exist, I can help guide you into making positive changes tailored to your life that may improve your quality of life.
