I began my plant based journey with my father when he faced health related issues. After some research, he came across doctors who were promoting a whole food plant based lifestyle. By adopting this lifestyle, my father experienced great improvement in his health and mental wellbeing. Upon seeing my father's results, I decided to follow this lifestyle after being diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). A specialist recommended going on some medications that had many side-effects. Before potentially exposing myself to these side-effects, I wanted to make significant changes to my lifestyle. Since following this path, I have successfully eliminated my symptoms and reported normal values for hormone levels associated with PCOS without having to reach for medication. After witnessing these results, I felt encourage in pursing the Plant-Based Nutrition certificate offered by eCornell: T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies. Then continuing to complete the Nutrition for Healthy Lifestyles certificate from Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT), allowing me to become a health coach. Understanding how challenging this transition was, I realized that health does not require sacrificing taste. With this, I continue to share flavour and nutrient dense dishes packed with anti-inflammatory foods!
Kate was faced with a very rare, no-cause no-cure terminal diagnosis of idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension (high blood pressure in the pulmonary arteries of the lungs) along with Type 2 Diabetes, she became legally blind and was put on continuous oxygen within months. Dizzy and fainting spells left her a mother of three school-aged children, out of work, immobilized and recording good-bye stories for my kids, who were unknowingly destined to live without her within 2-5 years.
After years of suffering, she discovered the power of a whole plant-based lifestyle and turned an imposed tragedy into triumph - re-gaining her sight, becoming non-diabetic and even reversing her fatal disease from level 3 to level 1! She wished this wellness to be yours. Create greater wellness for yourself with each delicious fork full with the effort of a click!
