Why Women Matter

Hibiscus

Women really matter.  In our roles as Queen, Mother, Wise Woman, Lover, we are all things to all people   We hold our partner, our children, our family, our community and the world in the palm of our caring hand. And it’s a heavy responsibility.

At the Vancouver Peace summit in 2009, the Dalai Lama said something that rocked the globe when he opined:

The world will be saved by the Western woman.

Fazle Hasan Abed, whose organization, BRAC (with an annual budget in excess of $1 billion) delivers education, health care and microfinance to millions of people in Asia and Africa. BRAC has given $6 billion in small loans to women.  Abed believes that women are the key to solving some of its most pressing challenges.

Girls and women represent the greatest untapped resources of the developing world.

That’s quite some plate to step up to!

But, when fatigue and the feeling we need to do more, be more and care more overwhelms us and we haven’t made room to hold ourselves in the palm of that hand, our ability to hold everything else together suffers.  And so does our health and happiness.  Does this makes sense?

Yes, women matter – because if not us, then who??


But we are unique…

No ‘one-size’ fits all, each one of us is different.

We’re not just the product of what we eat – we’re much, much more than a highly evolved ‘eating machine’ that only needs to eat ‘healthy to be healthy’.  If only it were that simple!


And quick fixes won’t work…

Just as it can take years to ‘break’, it can take a little time to mend.  Whatever is at the root of your struggle, however attractive they seem ‘quick fixes’ don’t work. They leave us trapped in that cage where the wheel of life goes around and around and around… but nothing changes, because only the symptoms, but not the root cause has been addressed.

You need to commit…

If we always do what we’ve always done, we’ll always get what we’ve always got.

Anthony Robbins and before him Albert Einstein, Henry Ford, and even Mark Twain have all been credited with uttering this profound, but obvious wisdom.  But what matters is the point it makes:

We can consciously commit to creating a future that gives us the chance to live the best life we can – or, we can remain passive participants in a future that just ‘happens’ to us and live a life we haven’t consciously chosen.

How easy is to ‘settle for’ – but coming to regret the wasted potential?

You need to ACT…

If it is to be, it’s up to me.

This is a simple, but profound wisdom.  If we want something badly enough to commit to it, it’s up to US to take responsibility, take charge, and stop waiting for someone else to do the job.

The fact is, it‘s going to be you who makes the decision to make the changes that bring energy, vitality and health and it’s up to you to take the first step, however small, and walk consistently towards those goals.


femergyHow we’ll work…

We’ll work together and we’ll start by putting a WHOLE you at the centre of the complex and interconnected web that is your whole life.

Food is our first and our best medicine, but it’s absolutely and by no means our only medicine! No amount of perfect-for-you, nutritious healing foods will mend a broken lifestyle, or mitigate the impact of a toxic environment.

Education, skills, tools with coaching support, can make the difference between wishing life to be better and the confidence to create a better, healthier, happier life better for yourself.

We’ll make the changes that matter and that will support your unique constitution and restore your energy, vitality and true health.

With knowledge and support, you can do it.  You can gain confidence, overcome the health struggles, ditch the overwhelm, the fatigue and the ‘worn-out’ treadmill and make the rest of your life, the best of your life!


Choosing a Coach (or a Client)

It’s a two-way thing…
When choosing a teacher, a coach or a mentor, knowledge, experience, and empathy are important prerequisites.
It might sound a little strange, but a good coach choose their client too – and has some prerequisites – like courage, commitment, willingness to take action and determination.
Do our vibes jive?
But probably the most important thing in a successful coach-client relationship is ‘a good fit’. What’s our first impression – our gut feeling?  Do we ‘connect’?  Do we ‘get’ each other?  Do we ‘gel’?
If the vibes don’t jive, then neither party will enjoy or benefit from the relationship.

20 minutes could absolutely change your life!

There won’t be any strings or expectations.  There will be a friendly, listening ear from someone who’s been where you are now. And there will be light at the end of the tunnel!

A FREE 20 minute call (via telephone or Skype) can explore whether we both get right vibes.  There’s no obligation at all, so please get in touch and arrange a time to hook up.

As a Certified GAPS Practitioner (Intestinal & Digestive Health), a Food & Lifestyle Health Advocate, a qualified Nutritional Chef and an experienced health researcher & writer, I’ve learned from helping scores of others – and from the experience of my own health challenges – that our food and our lifestyle is THE solution to much better health at any age.

As a partner, a mum & a grand-mum, I know ‘busy’! All around me I see women like me, who are tired of being tired and tired of struggling.

But with the right support, we can all develop the knowledge, skills, tools and the confidence to make the rest of our life the BEST of our life!
