Imagine yourself…

You wake feeling rested and excited about your day. You eat a healthy breakfast that gives you increased energy and productivity. Someone comments on your clear skin. You feel happy, confident, and calm. There’s a sense of freedom from worrying about your health.

You know how to lose weight naturally but that’s not the focus. Enjoying your relationships, getting out into the world and making a difference is much more fun. You enjoy cooking and eating easy healthy recipes. Your digestion has improved and you feel so much better in your body.

Is it really that easy? Yes it really is that easy! These are exactly the kinds of results you can expect from Alive and Awake Healing Arts in your first couple months. That’s only the beginning. The next question is, “what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”

Imagine eating real food…20140817_172503

If you’re interested in health and wellness then you might wonder which diet is right for you? Sorting through the tons of health information, weight loss programs, and health products out there can be so confusing!

There’s the high protein diet, juice fast, detox, gluten free diet… there’s always some kind of new diet promising a miracle! But “diet” is actually greek, diaita, meaning, manner of living, from diaitasthai, to lead one’s life.

Food author, Michael Pollan summarizes the diets that work by saying, “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly vegetables.” Ultimately, there’s no one right way to eat. Only the way that’s right for you!

Programs at Alive and Awake Healing Arts are radically different. No food pyramid, no restrictions, no guilt, no counting calories, simply real food, listening to your body, and creating a healthy lifestyle. Yes!

Are you overwhelmed with a diagnosis, unresolved symptoms, or side effects from your medication? Are you worried about a family history of heart disease or diabetes? Do you think it’s too late to get on the right path? You are not your disease! 

Colitis, arthritis, diverticulitis, any old “itis,” simply means inflammation of that body part. I’ve never had a food allergy or gastric reflux walk in to my office by itself. It comes attached to a whole person, with a unique constitution, history, concerns, food cravings, and life habits.

Holistic nutrition and medicinal herbs can increase nutrient absorption, strengthen natural healing processes, and promote self healing. You can literally reduce illness, heal injuries, pain, fatigue, mood swings, and sleep disorders, and create healthy kids all depending on your choice of food and medicine.

Plus you can seriously save a ton of money on processed foods, prescriptions, and healthcare bills with healthy food and herbal remedies!

Choose real health care for yourself and your family.

What’s the difference between a Registered Dietician and a Holistic Nutritionist? Instead of telling you what you should and shouldn’t eat a Holistic Counselor or Health Coach will educate and empower you to create a healthy eating plan that includes, shopping, cooking, preparing meals, and feeding your soul.

What’s the oldest form of community healthcare? Herbal Medicine. A Clinical Herbalist can design a formula specific to your needs. Proper dosage and care with herb/drug interactions will make it a more effective supplement. Your herbalist can provide knowledge about Black cohosh, Ginseng, Echinacea, St. John’s Wort.
