I have received health coach certificates from the Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® Program and the Institute of Integrative Nutrition®. I have completed the FDN Advanced Stress and Hormones module and have training in HTMA. I continue to study holistic health for people as well as animals.
MY HEALTH STORY
As a child, my family and I moved back and forth between Japan and the US due to my father’s job. The constant stress of trying to adapt to different school systems kept me extremely exhausted. I managed to hold myself together but I struggled for years with exhaustion, aches and pains, and increasing food sensitivities.
At 25, I was told by an endocrinologist that I had low thyroid and adrenals. The medication I was put on helped manage my symptoms but lead to heart problems. A cardiologist advised me to figure out a way to get off these medications which I was told I’d be on for the rest of my life.
At 29, I became pregnant and managed to have a very healthy baby. But that also took a huge toll on my body, as well as trigger postpartum depression, further hormonal imbalances and extreme exhaustion.
I realized if I wanted a healthier future for myself and my family, I had to take a very different approach.
I learned everything I possibly could about natural and holistic health and applied them to my life. I tried multiple different diets such as Paleo, vegetarian, and raw-food vegan. I read through book cases of cooking books and experimented with countless new ingredients. I cleaned out our house and threw away or donated items that weren’t contributing to my health. I stopped at nothing and was determined to have the health I always desired so I could do the things I loved.
Using this knowledge, I weaned myself off of all medications. I currently don’t have the debilitating symptoms like before. My health isn’t perfect as this is a work in progress- but I have gotten strong enough to where I am able to be a mom and wife as well as manage my farm without any days off.
I’ve always been passionate about helping others and I am so thrilled I have the energy to fulfill my dream as an intuitive holistic health coach.
