The Early Days
In the early days of my career, I worked in corporate finance. I had the privilege of working alongside influential corporate leaders and business owners whom I respected and admired. I loved the work we were doing. We were making a difference in so many people’s lives. From the team members, employees, shareholders, vendors, to the customers.
I understood the impact of such a heavy responsibility which many corporate leaders and business owners face everyday.
As I was under extreme pressure, my personal life fell apart. My relationship crumbled. My health deteriorated. And I started experiencing intense chronic pain, insomnia, and started developing an eating disorder. Just getting out of bed in the morning became a struggle.
At first, I tried to keep my problems low-key, but I knew that I needed to do something. I knew I had to find a solution for my health, performance, and happiness.
I sought out widely-used Western medical treatments. I saw doctors and psychologists. l tried going to the gym, doing workouts and all kinds of diets. I went to regular massages. I took pain relief medications and other prescribed drugs my doctors gave me, but nothing worked. All the treatments I tried only gave me temporary relief. Soon after, the symptoms returned.
That’s when I started looking into Complementary Medicine. I told myself, “There must be a way!”
Getting back on the horse
I started going to personal development workshops. I started seeing psychotherapists, chiropractors, nutritionists, and kinesiologists.
I was fascinated by Kinesiology from the very first session. I wondered at the time, “How come this Kinesiologist understood me so well?’ He could draw out the developmental blocks from my past. He knew what my body was structurally, biochemically and emotionally sensitive to. Not only did I leave feeling relaxed from the first session, but I also felt nourished and understood. I gained a deeper understanding of myself.
For the first time in my life, I knew the root cause of all my physical pain, fatigue and relationship issues. This awareness empowered me to take control of my life and to start making wise choices for myself.
With the support of a team of practitioners from different modalities, I was able to let go of things that no longer served me or my new lifestyle. I stopped using temporary relief or escape, including prescribed medication, and even coffee! I started doing things that filled me up, like: dancing, spending time with friends & family, waking in nature, eating nutritious food, and meditating. I started delving into different modalities in complementary medicine.
Gradually, within 2 years, I found myself one day waking up feeling vitalized and ready to achieve my goals. I was amazed at how I was able to experience a range of different emotions. From feeling joy, which I thought I lost. Feeling love within me for just being me. Slowly, people started feeling positive around me. They naturally gravitated towards me, both at work and in personal life. I started feeling confident again. I began to open myself up for new relationships to come.
In a turn of events
Eventually, I quit my corporate job and concentrated on studying Complementary Medicine, specializing in Holistic Kinesiology and Mind Body Medicine.
Nothing excites me more than seeing people heal, grow and transform. So plunged headfirst to holistic health and wellness. Over the years of comprehensive study and training, I am now a practicing Certified Holistic Kinesiologist and Mind Body Medicine practitioner.
I am now giving back to others the gift I received: a Life 2.0!
I support and empower people to be the true CEO of their lives. Living a life where success is no longer limited to financial freedom and influence, but expands to health, love and joy.
I make sure that my clients and I wake up everyday knowing that we have the vitality, love and happiness within to accomplish our dreams and contribute to our families and communities. Every morning, I am grateful knowing that: “Today, I can make every single life I touch revitalized.”
Now, it’s your turn. Are you ready to journey toward your life 2.0! Together ?
