I'm Desiree Taylor – Holistic Health & Lifestyle Coach
My journey to true health and happiness has been long, sometimes hard, always evolving, but the best thing that has ever happened to me! A gift from the universe I like to call it…..my personal awakening!
4 years ago I was living what I thought was a great, "healthy" life....I was playing elite level hockey, partying like a rock star and working ridiculously hard, all whilst ignoring the constant colds, flus, allergies and stomach problems I had and I masked my underlying symptoms of anxiety and depression, with food and alcohol addiction. My life was fuelled by processed foods, caffeine, sugar, very little sleep, no self-love and I raced through life at one hundred miles an hour!
Living this ‘burn and churn lifestyle’ with no-regard for what I was putting into my body and no self-worth brought my world crashing down to a complete stop….literally a stop! I could not get out of bed for months, I could not wash my own hair or walk to the toilet without my heart racing like I had run a marathon……I had developed chronic fatigue syndrome accompanied with underlying adrenal fatigue, gut and hormone disorders. Despite multiple doctors and hospital visits, no-one could help me so I decided to take things into my own hands and embarked on a journey to help heal myself!
4 years later and I now know what true health and happiness is. I finally feel ‘AWAKE’ for once in my life, everything I view and experience is with a clear mind, I have more energy than I have ever had, more passion for life, more purpose in my days, I never struggle with controlling my weight, I never need to diet and I am a better person who is thriving not merely surviving!!Want to know how I did it?MY BIG SECRET....
Our bodies have the miraculous ability to heal itself if you give it the right environment to do so! If you listen to your body, it will guide you and provide you with the information you need to heal, physically, mentally and emotionally.
I am living proof of this…..!
For years I had warning signs that I was not paying any attention to, my body was screaming for help and I was not listening!
- Depression, anxiety, panic attacks
- Drug and alcohol abuse
- Cystic acne
- Stomach problems
- Constant colds and flus
- Period pain
- Sugar, salt and caffeine cravings
- Binge eating
My prescription consisted of no medication, no antibiotics, no man-made toxins or synthetic chemical substances………..just simple basic nutrition and lifestyle choices!
Through learning to love and accept myself completely, by nourishing my body with nutritious food and by learning to live an authentic life, I eradicated all of the above, am now living my true purpose and am happier than ever!
