Health & PHYTO Detox
Janet’s Health Reset
After moving cross-country (twice), opening the doors to my own business in Austin with the added responsibility of providing livelihoods for other people, and soon thereafter expanding the salon to a flagship location for an international beauty brand, it all caught up with me. While undeniably exciting and filled with so much joy and opportunity, the stress and pressure was taking an enormous toll on my health and emotional wellbeing. Autoimmune issues I had been diagnosed with were getting worse, and based on how badly I had begun to feel I feared it was going to progress to the point where I couldn’t do what I loved most in life. I was afraid.
In the Spring of 2018, I started a deep process to reclaim my health. This is a topic about which I have been frequently asked. So, I’m opening my little black book to share the game changers who have made a big difference for me since that time. My journey isn’t for the faint of heart, but I can say that the changes I have made have given me a profound vitality and renewed strength to move beyond fear into a new relationship with my work, with those closest to me, and especially with myself.
Up to around the end of 2017, my experience with conventional medicine for some of my inflammation-related, auto-immune issues had been disappointing, to say the least. So, I sought out a new path of non-traditional, holistic and alternative practitioners who had come to me highly recommended.
There is no magic bullet or one-size-fits-all solution toward health and wellness, but the way I began to feel led me to go deeper into correcting imbalances and restoring my gut. For me, it was most difficult at the beginning. My diet and eating habits changed dramatically at first based on in-depth testing. I began taking a considerable array of dietary minerals and supplements. To shore-up my compliance and save time, I enlisted help from a personal chef who delivered prepared meals that I could quickly put together and eat throughout the week.
In addition, I used therapeutic cleanses, and embraced therapies such as colonics and acupuncture along with meditation and just taking more time for myself. While weight loss frankly wasn’t my quest, my waist went from 32” to 27”. Quite simply, everything has improved, from the inside-out. I am most excited about the future capacity for a healthy life.
