Hello everyone!! My name is Barbara and I am a certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach.
I struggled for most of my childhood and adulthood with my weight, partly because of my habit of numbing my emotions with food and partly due to a chronic illness I developed as a result of that habit and unresolved childhood sexual trauma. I’ve been on low-fat, low-carb, rice and fruit, and vegan diets of varying names and complexity. It wasn’t until I was diagnosed with Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome (finally) in 2010 after years of telling my doctors that something was wrong that I really started to get curious about nutrition.
Nutrition was only one prong of what is now my three-pronged philosophy that has enabled me to lose and keep off 50lbs and 20+% body fat, reverse PCOS, and reset my default from misery to unadulterated joy.
I’ve been ignored, had my trauma and illness minimized, and told I was flat out wrong for thinking the conventional wisdom on nutrition for PCOS was lacking. I have felt the agony of doing all the “correct” things only to fail. I promised myself that if I could succeed, then I owed it to the world to teach other people how to create that success for themselves. That’s what I’m here to do, to help YOU turn everything around and create the life you want to live. Click here to get started.
