Why Health on Purpose?

We have an epidemic on our hands.  Somewhere along the way, we’ve turned into a society with very low expectations for our health, especially as we move into our 40’s and beyond.

As women, we wear our busy-ness like a badge of honour.   I know I sure did. I bemoaned the fact that I had too little time to take care of myself,  continued to allow my health to suffer, and yet did nothing to change it. 

Nothing that is, until my health started to deteriorate to the point that I could no longer ignore it.   I had to do something to change it.

You know how it is, your doctor tells you that your thyroid is “in the normal range” and you just need to live with the fact that you’re getting older.  It happens to everyone. Your naturopath gives you a list of things to buy that you cannot afford and are not willing to spend all day shovelling into your system.  The online health coach you hired swears keto is the answer.

We just need it to be simple.  Am I right? We are already overwhelmed and over scheduled and over it all! 

When did it become accepted that after 40, it’s all down hill?  When did we decide that having little energy, little to no sleep, hormonal upset, mood swings, hot flashes, uncontrollable digestive feedback and weight gain was “normal?”

It’s no longer my normal and it doesn’t have to be yours.  Imagine making some small switches to the things that you’re already doing.  Imagine sleeping better and feeling more energetic, without disrupting your entire household routine?  Imagine how it would feel to have a digestive system that is completely at ease – no bloating, no out of control bowel movements, no embarrassment, just a happy tummy.  Imagine balanced hormones – is there even such a thing? There is, and we will find it all together.

“ The difference between where you are and where you want to be is what you do, habitually.”
