Providing supportive relationships
to manifest lasting transformation
I’ve always been fascinated with nutrition and the human body – how the choices we make (in what we do and what we ingest and put on our bodies and breathe in our air) can either improve or decline our health. I believe everyone has a health destiny. Sure, some things are preordained…but its not a setpoint, it is a –range–. And our choices dictate where we are in that range. And it is a pretty big (comfortingly inspiring) range. So –we– choose. We choose where we want to be in that range. We can be suffering at the bottom, or excelling at the top in-spite-of-our-realities. With what we have, whatever that may be, that we can be the –best self– that we can. To experience life, the experience of LIVING. That is what we are here for by the way: the experience of living, being alive. This manifestation we have here with taste, touch, smell, sight, sound and energy.
But that is not what the constant bombardment of advertising tells (~brainwashes) every waking minute of the day. No. What we absorb is there are a million way to get it –wrong–. And there is a TON of information out there about everything. I know a lot of people that can’t really wade through it. Its too much. But with all my years of being a researcher behind me, amassing and mentally sorting information is what I’ve been honed to do. I wanted to become a Health Coach to help others that simply know there is a happier version of –themselves– out there. They know it but they can’t process the information and jumbled goals to get there. That’s where I come in. I consider myself more of a cheerleader (ah… high school) than a coach. Here for you when the input is too chaotic. The decisions too fuzzy – and the actions too easily dismissed. Here to *listen*, be in it with you, and support your journey.
I wanted to become a Health Coach to help others find their way to the top of their range. To convey to the other “left brainers” out there, that the thoughts within your head REALLY do impact your health. They are as an important part of the pie as is whether you are getting enough protein, or vitamin C, or sleep or probiotics. Being –healthy–, really truly whole, really is a huge pie (mmm…pie) with so many interrelated factors. If you completely discount any one part, it won’t be whole.
Sources of Health
Hummingbird Health Synergy is about supporting whole body & mind health. Now, if you already have some intuition that says something else is ideal for you, and you just need some help and accountability, I can help you with that too. But for others that are still drowning in the deep end, I bring information to you from all sides. To edge in the self-imposed boundaries gently from all angles.
Internal chatter & beliefs
Your beliefs. This one is HUGE. And this is the one I put last in my journey. After all, it cannot be measured, quantified, compared or proven, how important can it really be? Well, based on my experience… you see it is listed as number 1. Not only do our beliefs and feelings literally effect the energy and vitality of our cells, but our mental chatter also strongly dictates whether we’ll have the strength, conviction and –desire– to keep progressing on all the other pieces: like diet, exercise, etc. Most of the things that undermine our goals have to do with unprocessed, and very often –unconscious– beliefs. I work with clients to process and release these beliefs so that they no longer sabotage what you want for yourself and your life.
You should always try to be present with your food while you are eating it. Rrrreally present. After all, you want to enjoy it right? Stress-eating is the epitome of NOT being mindful. That food will do nothing good for your body. It took me a long time to stop wanting snacks while watching tv in the evenings. It was ultimate comfort. But I wasn’t being present with my food at all; thus, I could eat three times more than I needed because I wasn’t ‘truly’ experiencing it.
Whole foods. Life gives life. We must love our bodies (See Focus 1). Our bodies were given to us this lifetime to experience each day we are given. And when we love someone, we give our time and energy to them. If we love our bodies, then they must be worth the time and care to nourish them. Not just “fill them up”, but truly –nourish– them. there is more in food than simply the nutrition and calories. There’s an energy to food that we’ve put a little of ourselves into – as if the food has more chi.
But all that aside, nutrition is important. Our society has been overtaken by a very plastic way of eating. It’s not even food anymore – it is synthetic. “Plood” if you will…
Removing all processed foods that have ingredients lists that read like an advanced college chemistry class is vital to respecting your body.
Our bodies are meant to move. We are energetic beings that need flow. But that flow is different for everyone; everyone is at a different level. But most everyone can do something. Tying this into meditation and Mindfulness is a great way to strengthen multiple pillars together. When you are moving your body, however much you are moving your body, –appreciate– that you CAN move your body in this way. Feel the bones, the muscles, the nerves. Feel the energy of the cells. Appreciate the gift of this movement, this ability. Focus on the miracle that it is.
