Did you know that we have a coach on our team who specializes in nutrition? Allow us to introduce Coach Sarah Bouse:
Hi, I am Sarah
I wasn’t always eating kale and making my own bone broth…
Growing up, I ate “normal” foods readily accepted in the American diet: cereal, whole grains, sandwiches, salads, pasta, pizza, fruit, vegetables, and dairy. I didn’t care about food quality. It all seemed the same to me. I never made the connection between what I was eating and how it was making me feel.
I was always the kid people described as stocky and sturdy. I was an athlete in middle school and high school but was injured quite often. I worked hard and was always on the go never stopping to think about my health. I figured if I keep working out and doing the things I wanted I was “healthy.”
Towards the end of high school, I started to suffer from hormonal/endocrine imbalances. I started to have extreme fatigue, skin issues, mood swings etc. In an attempt to address these symptoms, I went to the doctor they told me I was healthy but decided for my menstrual cycle issues to put me on birth control (still regret this!) After just a few short months I started to gain quite a bit of weight 40lbs in 1 year, my skin was a strange color, I had debilitating abdominal pain that sent me to the hospital 3 times. I was diagnosed with endometriosis and PCOS.
Looking back, I now realize all of these seemingly disparate symptoms were actually related. My diet was killing me. I just wasn’t in tune with what my body was trying to tell me.
I still continued with my life and figured this is just how life was going to be. I got married, my husband and I wanted to start a family and after a year of trying to have a baby we knew we needed to change and found a Naturopath Doctor. As I slowly removed the processed food and chemical-laden beauty products from my life, my health began to return and my body healed. Through the use of a whole food diet and quality supplements I was able to address all those underlying issues and after 3 years of infertility I got pregnant!!
Although I have been through some scary times, and many more stories to tell, I wouldn’t trade this experience for the world. I have seen firsthand the power of REAL NUTRITION and how it can restore vitality to your body and bring you back to health.
Your body is meant to heal from within.
I found a love for fitness and nutrition! Because I was passionate about my own health and what I observed in friends and family, I decided to take that passion and study Nutritional Therapy. I can now share my knowledge so you don’t need to suffer for as long as I did.
