How to Glow From the Inside Out
First of all, thank you for being here.
I’m so happy you’re here. Actually I’m overjoyed.
I’m a massive believer in being exactly where you’re meant to be in every single moment, so the fact that you’re here with me isn’t a coincidence.
The book you’re about to encounter stretches over my decade-long health journey with Lyme Disease and how it shook my world. Experiencing days, weeks, and years of daily vertigo, cystic acne, heart palpitations, digestive distress, hypothyroidism, anxiety, hypochondria, losing half my head of hair and gaining over 30 pounds, to name a few. All of this has ultimately brought me to write the most optimal, effective and glow-induced health bible to take you from where you are to where you want to be.
In it I highlight my darkest moments to show you that light can always be found in moments of extreme darkness. I’m not lucky or special. On this wavering path, I found this healing light and have lived to nurture, grow and spread it along the way to help guide you in discovering your own health, happiness in this beautiful thing you call life.
I call this light the glow.
Glow sums everything up perfectly to me. It runs so much deeper than a four-letter word and isn’t something that can be externally put on.
Finding your inner glow takes work, but I know with my whole heart that you can find it wherever you are in your life this exact moment. Remember, there are no accidents in life. Everything is here to evolve you to your best self.
I believe these three values have to be in balance to find not only your optimal health, but also your purpose:
1.NUTRITION is at the core of everything you do. We are cellular beings who need food not only to survive, but also thrive. This book shows you how!
2.MIND/BODY HEALING goes hand in hand with nutrition. There is only so much food can do, as our lifestyle, environment and internal dialogue play a massive role. In my book, we tackle this holistically.
3.SELF-LOVE must be infused with the other two values. If you don’t love yourself, ultimately you’re not going to feed your mind and body what you need to live an optimal life. Love yourself and your body and mind will give back tenfold. My favorite self-love exercises and daily rituals are included in these pages.
How To Glow From The Inside Out
Not only through food, but through tapping into the corners of the mind and unraveling the fearful thoughts you might be holding onto that are truly preventing you from moving forward in your health, body, relationships, career and dreams. Since mindset is 80% of the battle, if you keep replaying the same dialogue and actions, you will stay in the exact same place. And who wants that? No one!
I’m here to help you make this shift and to guide you on your journey. I say, “guide” because I encourage you to apply your own twist to it. Change up the ingredients in the reset if you don’t like certain foods or apply your own inner wisdom and intuition to some of the self-love exercises. None of this is meant to be rigid and restrictive. This whole book is all about listening to your inner guide and self.
Ultimately, this is one of the biggest lessons I took away from my Lyme Disease lessons and teachings, and I hope this is something you take away from this book: No one, whether doctors or family, knows your body better than you do. No one. If something isn’t feeling right or working the way you want it to, listen to it and act to change it. You have the power to act, but sometimes all you need is the courage to do so.
I hope these words, information, recipes, guides and exercises give you the courage to not only act, but to love yourself wholly from the inside out. It will forever and always be an inside job.
