Hi, I’m Marjan, and I’m so glad our paths have crossed!
I’m a Holistic Nutritionist and I’m so passionate about all things related to health. I’m not just talking about food and calories because I believe that the body is more than just the physical, and to create healing we need to look at the body as a whole: all the emotional stuff, physical symptoms, mentally and even spiritually.
I know, I know, it sounds hokey, right? But we’ve all experienced something like this: when you’re feeling nervous about something coming up and you start to feel all the butterflies in your tummy, and you might even need to rush to the washroom a couple more times than your usual! This is a clear case of our mental and emotional experiences having an effect on our physical. So it’s not so crazy to think that it can all be connected, right? The physical, mental and emotional. And how often has this been true for you: you don’t feel well, with loads of symptoms that are not normal for you, and you go to your doctor only to find out your blood work is “normal” and your symptoms are just something that happens for someone in your age and weight category.
This very experience is actually what got me thinking about the bigger picture for my health: if my doctor is telling me that everything is “normal”, then why do I still feel so blaah? Low energy, trouble sleeping, mood ups and downs, facial acne, hair falling out in chunks and frequent feelings of anxiety. But this was all considered normal.
First, with small changes to my diet, and then later starting to pay attention to my body’s emotional and mental needs, slowly all of those symptoms started to diminish and eventually completely went away. Now, I want to shout it from the rooftops! Nutrition and lifestyle CAN significantly impact your health. And just because someone says that your symptoms are normal, it’s NOT true if that’s not YOUR normal!
I’m originally a Northern Ontario gal, but now I’m living and working in Guelph Ontario. But the best part is that it doesn’t matter where I live! With the magic of computers and the internet, I can meet with people from all over the world and I can help them find their normal. I can’t wait to meet you!
