Do you ever wish you could have your youthful energy and glow again?

Would your life be any better if you felt healthier?

I have a feeling you and I share this belief:
YOU ARE CAPABLE OF BEING STRONG + HEALTHY + HAPPY + VIBRANT.

If you believe that everything healthy you wish for is in your control, and you WANT it,
then I’m so happy you’re here.

You might want your energy back or your body to feel strong or your skin to glow.
You might just want to make a few tweaks so that you and your family can be healthier together.

This is what I believe:
IF YOU WANT HEALTH + HAPPINESS, YOU CAN HAVE IT.   (You just have to really want it.)

This is what I know:
The path to health is through learning, healing, and preventing.

Being healthy is not hard.  (It’s actually quite simple and almost addictive!)

What’s hard is being willing to learn – being open to dumping your misperceptions and gaining solid knowledge.  There are too many options and opinions in nutrition, and that’s probably why you always feel stuck.

I keep things really, really simple.  I teach you how your body works.
Then I teach you how to use foods to build and heal your body.

And in the process, I help you make healthy choices and create healthy habits.
Not just for your body, but for your mind and soul.   Not just for now, but for your lifetime.

Here’s how I became such a believer in the power of health and prevention…

A LITTLE ABOUT ME

I grew up thinking I wanted to be a pediatrician.  And then I went to medical school, and my whole “life plan” came crashing down.

From day one, it was clear I was on the wrong path.  But it took me four years of medical school, three years of residency, endless years of being lost, and an immeasurable amount of courage to leave medicine for good.  For my good.

But I’m a true nerd.  I love the science of how the body works.  Tucked deep down was a love of nutrition – how food heals and cures.  We didn’t learn that stuff in med school.  So I became a student again, but this time studied nutrition.

Everything started to make so much sense.  My brain was wired for prevention.  The father of medicine himself – Hippocrates – taught that food is our medicine.  And I’m his true follower.

I’m a believer in potential and growth.  Take what you’re given and love it and nourish it.

I’m so excited to go on this journey with you… if you’re ready for it!

With love & gratitude,

mishan

 

 

 

A FEW FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do all kids love sugar?  

Yes.  Something’s not quite right if they don’t.

What’s the best age to learn nutrition?

Now.  The age you’re at now.  But if you’re asking about your kids – sometime around 10 years old is good to start learning about how their body works.  Before that, it’s wonderful to teach them about healthy foods, but the health connection gets stronger when they relate it to themselves.

Are you a vegetarian or vegan?

I love farm animals.  So I prefer not to eat them.
But I love plants.  So I eat a lot of plant foods.
I don’t like to put a label on myself.  I love food.  I love eating.  I love cooking and baking.
I feel nearly identical to my closest relatives – the great apes – who live strongly on plant foods.
So I like to say I’m plant empowered.
(I’m not sure if I answered that question.)

What do I think prevents the majority of people from getting healthy?

They don’t value their body.  If you believe your body is a precious gift, you’d do anything to protect it.

If I’ve tried every diet and I still don’t feel my best, what am I doing wrong?

You’re dieting.  That’s what’s wrong.  DON’T.  DIET.  Diets usually = deprivation.  Your body should not be deprived.  It needs to be given real, whole, fresh, natural foods that come from the Earth.  Eat like you mean it.

Who’s the cutie in the pic with me?

A very sweet sheep who loves dangly earrings.  She nudged me to take a selfie together.
