I love to help women between the ages of 35-60 who are suffering with weight gain, hormonal imbalances, have lost their energy and joy, and need a step by step plan. I give them a solution to help them find their way back to themselves with simple techniques for their busy lives.

I had one client whom I've worked with for over a year who was struggling with hypoglycemia, to the point where she would pass out because her blood sugar would drop so dramatically. We tried everything with this client, from supplements, to healthy protein and fats with every meal, and so on - but nothing worked until I implemented the 10 habits from YHC and she stopped snacking. The key to her success and finally gaining control of her blood sugar issues was to stop snacking, which was the exact opposite of what she was always told to do. Avoiding processed sugars at any cost, eating only healthy sugars such as dates, raw honey, and fruit and focusing on 3 meals a day was the key to her no longer suffering from low blood sugars. It was even hard for me to believe, because as a Registered Nurse, I was always taught to advice patients to eat 6 small meals especially if they have blood sugar issues (not diabetics type 1), it was incredible to witness with my own eyes, how following an eating schedule as nature intended really does work, even for people who are on the verge of becoming insulin resistant like my client was. It was such a breakthrough and such an accomplishment for my client to finally figure out how she could eat without crashing everyday!
