In today's fast-paced world, women often juggle multiple responsibilities, leaving little time for self-care and prioritizing their health. Among the various aspects of well-being, metabolic health stands out as a cornerstone for overall vitality and longevity. Your metabolism is not just about how quickly you burn calories; it encompasses a complex network of processes affecting energy levels, hormonal balance, and mood.

Metabolic health starts at the cellular level,…what you can not see. Metabolism responds not only to the food we eat and how we move our bodies but also if we choose to live in a predominant sympathetic tone versus a parasympathetic tone.

You might already know that nourishing your body with lots of fruits and veggies, lifting weights, and getting enough sleep daily will transform your metabolism.

You also want to live in a predominant parasympathetic tone. That means reducing the rush and overworked schedule, creating a margin between appointments or clients, and letting go of the late wine for sleep. All of these affect your hormones and your metabolism.

A methylation test can help determine the most appropriate steps to reduce inflammation and oxidative stress. Perhaps you have been ignoring them because you do not have personalized and precise information about how your genes work.

Metabolic health is also affected by the environment. Endocrine disruptors are man-made substances that affect your hormones and, in the United States, are associated with conditions like autoimmune hypothyroidism. Using the Environmental Working Group website is a way to look up products before consuming them, especially our beauty products.

Finally, tune in to your body's signals and honor its needs. Pay attention to how different foods, activities, relationships, work environments, and lifestyle choices make you feel, and adjust accordingly. Your body is incredibly resilient and has the innate wisdom to guide you toward optimal health when you listen to its cues.


By following this road map, you can empower yourself to gain metabolic freedom and unlock the vibrant energy and vitality you deserve. Remember, it's not about perfection but progress and consistency in nurturing your body, mind, and spirit. Here's to embracing a lifestyle that supports your metabolic well-being and enhances your overall quality of life.
