For years I’ve been working with busy professional women on helping them achieve both physical and emotional energy, glowing skin and feeling sexy in their body through reducing their stress, detoxing their daily routine by looking at ingredients they put IN their body, ON their body and AROUND their body and by nourishing their body using cost-effective, non-toxic, efficient, easy-to-use natural solutions.

And one thing became clear really quickly…

The information online regarding optimal health and feeling your best is incomplete and confusing at best and downright harmful at worst.

So, I set out to change that and put all of my years of experience and research into a guide that would make it super easy for my readers to identify once and for all why they have been feeling lousy, and most importantly, how to regain their energy, health and quality of life once and for all, naturally.

Energized, Glowing & Sexy

The Busy Woman’s Guide to Reduce Stress,
Detox Your Environment and Nourish Your Body

INTRO

  • About me – use blurb from “about” page on website
    • From France = different culture, used to personal medical care from family doctor
    • Inquisitive mind = always asked WHY as a child, still do in my practice
    • Car accident in Oct 1999
      • complicated, scary, unfriendly medical system
      • Felt like  no longer a person, just a “case” with $$ signs attached
      • Symptoms based care = medications, injections, surgery
      • Insurance driven care NOT personal care driven
      • Started to focus on educated self-care
      • Made me realize the gap / dysfunction of current medical system
      • I could fill this gap  with my passion & knowledge to serve others
  • My expertise
    • Use education & qualifications from my biz brochure
    • use areas of specialization from my biz brochure
  • How my approach helps reader
    • Integrative + functional approach = use blurb from biz brochure West meets East
    • Focus on person’s life history up to now to uncover lifestyle habits & factors that lead to the symptoms
    • Look at Symptoms from a different angle than traditional medical care = the same a red light on the dashboard of car. Covering up the symptoms with a medication “disconnects” the body’s natural communication system
    • Different mindset / approach – symptoms = tip of iceberg; focus = identify the root cause(s), the WHY behind the symtpoms
    • Comprehensive patient centered & science based assessments & personalized lifestyle recommendations & programs
    • Put your own mask on 1st before assisting others
    • The 1 degree of change = small sustainable changes, BIG lasting  impact
    • I provide the education, resources, tools for cost effective, easy-to-use, safe, natural solutions one can incorporate into busy lifestyle for immediate impact and sustainable results both for reader and her family

PART #1 = PROBLEM

  • Pain points/emotions/worries
    • After a couple or more kids, belly fat is now “here to stay” no matter what & how hard you’ve tried, taking over thighs & glutes, yikes!
    • Cellulite is creeping in
    • Losing muscle tone
    • You have tried every diet under the sun = still not getting lasting expected results
    • Can’t stick with any diet long term anyway, since you have to prepare meals for the entire family & it’s more work to prepare something for them, then for you
    • Reduced initiative / energy
    • Feeling sluggish/blue/melancholy
    • Mood fluctuations / anxiety
    • You start crying for “no reason”
    • Poor night sleep / feeling exhausted all the time
    • Sex drive down the drain, creates spousal tension & more stress, as if you needed that!
    • Brain fog / unable to focus / forgetful
    • Dull looking skin / brittle nails / thinning hair + hair loss
    • Feeling stressed out, pulled in 1000 different directions
    • Between spouse, kids, aging parents, team members, clients – everyone wants a “piece of you” & your attention, but you feel empty to begin with and would like “someone” to take care of you for a change
    • You no longer feel like the wonder woman you used to be
    • Can’t anyone see that you are at the end of your rope?
    • You’ve been to your primary physician + several other specialists to figure out your troubles, & although they can’t tell you the reasons of your symptoms, they have nonetheless prescribed you a medication (or more than 1) to alleviate the symptoms,, but you now have new symptoms emerging, and you are feeling worse than you did before
    • After numerous doctors’ appointments, hours of research, and feeling bounced from one place to another, no one can tell you how to fix what you have, and since the medications are not helping, it is obviously “all in your head”, and there’s nothing that can be done
    • You are feeling physically & emotionally depleted, scared, alone
    • Why does it have to be so hard?  There’s got to be a easier way
    • You are not alone!

You are NOT Alone – Just like you, 90% of my female clients

    • come to me with the same exact complains as yours
    • Just like you, they are busy professionals & moms
    • Just like you, they have lost faith in the traditional medical system, because doctors have failed them, don’t care or simply have given up on them
    • Just like you they are independent, driven, resourceful, solution-oriented women
    • Just like you, they like being proactive, take charge and see results for their efforts
    • Just like you, their kids and spouse seem oblivious to their struggle and/or aggravated with their emotional ups & downs
    • Just like you, they are the backbone of the family dynamics, and without them, things just don’t run as smoothly around the house
    • Just like you, they are the ones doing the grocery shopping + meal prep for everyone in the household – It is not realistic for them to prepare a meal for themselves + something different for everyone else.
    • Just like you, they are struggling with meal prep + food combos where everyone at the table is happy.
    • Just like you, they have aging parents who also need their time & attention
    • Just like you, they are seeking cost-effective, quick & easy-to-use natural solutions that work, and that they can handle / implement for themselves & everyone else in the family without spending more time or a lot of money, because let’s be real, they don’t have either to spare
  • Why the Traditional Medical System Has Failed You
    • Doctors are only reimbursed by insurance for 7 minutes spent with patient
    • Current healthcare system is more a disease management system
    • Doctors recommendations are based on what is covered by health insurance, and many options not covered by insurance are many times not even discussed with patients
    • Assessment tools (lab work, mammograms, etc…) used by doctors only based on what is covered by health insurance.  There is a VAST array of available tests not presented to patients, leaving a huge gap of misinformation
    • Current medical system based on infectious diseases (those we CATCH it) model of the 19th & early 20th centuries = works well for emergencies + infections + crisis care = worked well, were able to eradicate plagues like cholera, etc….
    • doctors trained on that model = to prescribe meds or perform surgeries to “nuke” the problem/symptom = find a pill for every ill system
    • New 21st century epidemics = functional diseases (those we DEVELOP) like diabetes, high blood pressure, etc… = old model is antiquated, obsolete, inadequate for these
    • A shift MUST take place – when you look at lifestyle, environment, diet patterns to identify the root cause(s) of the disease(s), you make modifications in those areas, function is regained, health is created, disease & symptoms go away on their own.

PART #2 = BACKGROUND/INFORMATION

  • Some stats & facts
    • CDC health care costs stats – Management of chronic illnesses = 80% of current healthcare expenditures, but occupies close to 0 time in physicians training
    • Polypharmacy – simultaneously taking different drugs to treat a range of ailments = increasingly common
    • Estimated 6.7% of hospitalized patients = adverse drug reactions from drugs administered correctly by trained professionals (Jeff Bland book)
    • Patients become lifelong consumers of medications that were originally designed (& approved by regulators) to be used for a limited time Not the course of a lifetime (p26)
    • Genetics vs. epigenetics – brief explanation of what they are & the science (reference Case Adams book)
    • Chronic ailments don’t have 1 single cause but several factors
    • American Health Association stats = see my brochure
    • It has been since 1938 that U.S. Congress passed a law regarding the safety of chemicals and ingredients used in food, skin care and cosmetics.  While the European Union has banned close to 1,500 ingredients scientifically proven to cause harm to humans and pets, the U.S. has only “restricted” 30 as of 2018
    • It is time to be proactive in order to end needless suffering for millions of people
  • Common denominators of Chronic Diseases / Hormonal imbalances = Toxic load + stress load + malnourishment.

The body is overburdened (with toxins + stress) but no longer has the tools it needs to repair,  function properly & thrive (malnourished, not enough minerals, vitamins, fiber, proteins, etc… oxygen, H20, sleep).

The easiest and most efficient way to reduce toxins, reduce stress and increase nourishment is to look at what we put IN our bodies, what we put ON our bodies, and what we put AROUND our bodies. Other factors such as accidents, sudden traumas, sleep patterns and exercise play a huge part as well.

    • What we put IN our bodies
      • Thoughts / mindset
      • Air
      • Food
      • Water, drinks
      • Medications/synthetic supplements
    • What we put ON our bodies
      • Personal care products (shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, etc…)
      • cosmetics/makeup
      • Sunscreen
      • Perfumes
      • Soaps, body lotion
      • Water we bathe/shower in
    • What we put AROUND our bodies
      • Cleaning supplies
      • Laundry detergent / softener
      • Air fresheners
      • Sunlight
      • Pesticides, herbicides, fungicide
      • People / relationships
      • Environment (car exhaust, city pollutants, etc…)
    • Other factors
      • traumas/accidents
      • Sleep
      • exercise/movement/ability to move full range of motion without pain (including bowel movement)
