My name is Ashley and I am here to help you learn and grow into a more healthy and vibrant lifestyle.
I have spent the last 10 years changing my diet to correct several health issues, that I am now certain were directly caused and/or proliferated by the foods that I consumed through out my formative years.
As I changed my dietary habits, slowly...very slowly, I stopped experiencing many of the symptoms that had plagued me for over half of my life. And I was able to stop taking all 8 medications that I was on!
(I can give more details on my personal issues in a one-on-one setting)
The more I changed and the deeper that I went, the more clear and focussed my mind became. I started becoming more aware of my body and what it was saying to me and I began understanding how to give it the environment it needs to self-heal.
I also became aware of the relationship between mind, body and spirit. Everything starts in the mind, I believe this 100%. So, changing old thought patterns and belief systems are extremely important on your journey to integrative health.
In order to heal our physical selves, we must also heal the wounds in our minds and our hearts.
(Meditation, yoga, breath-work and journaling are all great tools to assist you on your journey)
We all have the ability to heal ourselves, as long as we give our bodies the chance. Homeostasis IS the human body's number one goal.
My goal is to share what I have learned and am still learning with everyone that is eager to make a change. And to be a guide for you along your journey, as well as be there to provide support as you venture down this path.
SUPPORT IS PARAMOUNT!
At Gaia Total Wellness, we believe that wellness comes from balancing mind, body and spirit.
We focus on a whole foods diet, movement and meditation.
I am currently focussing on detox workshops and will soon be offering one-on-one coaching sessions
It is our mission to educate and empower you with the knowledge of food as medicine. So, that you may take back your health one bite, or drink, at a time!
