Using food as medicine and as a lifetime of nourishment is not about throwing substances into your system and hoping something happens internally. It’s about making conscious choices and using the energetic effects of those specific foods, how they are prepared, to support and heal your high blood pressure and any other conditions, whether chronic or not.
2020 the year from hell is over, but it has left its mark. The stress, uncertainties, tiredness, irritability and feeling bloated.... its time for healing of the spirit, mind and soul.
You can show up strong, energetic and resilient for the life you want to live.
I was once a high blood pressure sufferer beaten down by my medication side effects that literally almost killed me: A swelling tongue slowly blocking off my airpipe, a persistent cough, and more. My doctors didn’t know what more to do with me, my many symptoms overwhelmed them and me.
To survive I had to take matters into my own hands. So I changed by diet, lifestyle and started my own business, at first as a side hustle, then left my banking career.
When you choose foods with nutrition in mind, then you can enhance your own well-being.
Your choice of diet profoundly influences your long-term health prospects. There are only two common lifestyle habits that are more influential, and they are smoking and other tobacco use; and excessive drinking of alcohol.
Lots of older people, and some young individuals also; suffer from debilitating conditions that could have been largely prevented had they known and applied the nutrition principles of today.
Chronic diseases like heart disease, diabetes, dental disease, some kinds of cancer, adult bone loss … all have a connection to poor diet. Granted these diseases cannot be prevented by a good diet alone and are to some extent determined by a person’s genetic constitution, activities and lifestyle.
But within the range set by your genetic inheritance the likelihood of developing these diseases is strongly influenced by your food choices.
There is a wide variety of cooking styles we can use to create a desired effect within the body. But, it’s imperative to know when it’s best to use them.
‘You don’t have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces. Just good food from fresh ingredients.”

Learning to cook healing foods is a gift you give to yourself and others.
Healing my own debilitating side effects from my high blood pressure medications, and with over five years of professional experience working with clients to help them heal as well, I am a firm believer that we can use food as both preventative, and healing medicine.
