Note from Anita
Hi Everyone. I've had an exciting month of December and am full of hope in helping you improve your health in the New Year.
First, I have found an excellent interview that I want you to hear. This will tell you what steps you need to take in order to recover from fibromyalgia.
Then, I'll just share with you how one woman has made truly healthy decisions and significant changes to her life after taking my e-course--Seven Weeks to Wellness-- which is basically a self-coaching improvement plan.
Finally, have you tried to change your lifestyle--like eating better, exercising more, or quitting smoking--but in the end, after a short time, you fall back to your old habits? Then please, read on. . . .
Interview with Mary Moeller
Mary Moeller is the most famous former fibro sufferer that I know of. She's a nurse and has written 4 books on fibromyalgia (maybe 5 by now). In this audio interview, she outlines 4 areas that need attention in order for you to recover from fibromyalgia. These are things you can control and must start doing. (Update: I could no longer find this interview online, but you can order her books on Amazon.)
I just want to encourage you to try out my e-course Seven Weeks to Wellness. I have a woman who has contacted me after having made amazing changes just from this self-help course. She's quit smoking, got rid of toxic people in her life, added food supplements, and started working toward her passion in life. These are all things that my e-course, Seven Weeks to Wellness can help you do. (E-course being updated, available 2018.)
This is a free course designed to get you into action, taking charge of your own health.
Reach your health goals
Do you find yourself saying, "Tomorrow I'll start my diet"? Does life seems to get in the way and suddenly it's been 2 months since you've exercised? Is there always an excuse or situation that leads you to start smoking again? Maybe you just don't know where to start to lessen your pain and increase your energy.
If you've answered yes to any of these, my Personal Health Coaching Services may be an answer for you. Don't get me wrong, I cannot wave my magic wand and make you all better. This will involve effort on your part.
We all know we should be eating better and exercising more. My job is to remind you of the things you already know, fill in the blanks that you don't know, and keep you accountable for setting goals and making progress. This isn't a program where I tell you what to do and you hate doing it. Everything you do will be based on your decisions and comfort level.
(Update 2017: I now offer
Health Coaching and Energy Healing Sessions.)
Here's a testimonial from a client who was coached only by email, without the advantage of the web-based program to which you will have access:
I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Rheumatoid Arthritis. I admit I had lost hope of recovering from Fibromyalgia. The doctors here just want to prescribe painkillers, but they don't want to look into the problem itself.
I'm a very negative person and this made me much worse and so much more stressed out. Stress made the pain worse, too. I used to feel helpless everyday--always feeling tired and my legs were both heavy, apart from the pain. At work I couldn't concentrate at all due to a brain fog problem and bad headaches. I used to feel as if I was on another planet.
Since I came in contact with Anita my life changed because I knew that somebody (although very far away) could understand me and what I am passing through. This helped me alot. When I asked her questions she
always answered me and we kept in contact nearly on a daily basis. I wished and still do that she lived here in Malta so that we could meet face to face and discuss things.
The multi-vitamins, lecithin and calcium are helping me a lot, which I take on a daily basis. Before I go to bed I used to take 5-HTP to sleep and now no longer need it as now I'm pain free. Since I've been keeping away from wheat, sugar and caffeine the pain has diminished abruptly. Even the fact that I lost a little weight helps me alot. Apart from diet, I go for short walks every day after work to keep the muscles from getting tight.
Here's a testimonial from a client who was coached only by phone:
After 6 months of Health Coaching with Anita, I am more focused on my own health and taking care of myself instead of taking care of everyone else first. After struggling with pain for more than 5 years,
with no help from conventional medicine, I am now pain-free. I have incorporated quality supplements into my routine. I can tell the difference in how I feel, if I miss taking my vitamins. I also have more energy, exercise regularly, have changed my diet, and lost 14 pounds. Instead of dragging through the day, now I’m excited about life!
So if your New Year's resolution is to get better health habits into your life, and you've already dropped them, this is your chance to really make some permanent changes.
If you are ready to take the steps that Mary Moeller talks about in the audiointerview found above, my services as the only Professional Health Coach specializing in Fibromyalgia can help you get on your personalized road to recovery.
I know you've been thinking of everyone else this past holiday season. Now it's time to think of yourself. What do you want most? You want to feel healthier, right?
Are you willing to do the work? Make the changes? Get started? Go ahead, you need to be selfish in order to recover. You have to put yourself first from now on. If you have trouble putting yourself first, then coaching may be exactly what you need. The rewards to your health will last a lifetime.
Don't get me wrong. You are not going to change everything and recover in one month. But I will help you figure out what is and is not working for you and how to get from where you are now to where you want to be, regarding your health.
Not ready to take action yet? We can look at why that is true, what is holding you back, and find what motivates you to do what is needed to improve your health.
Still smoking and know it's not helping you but just can't quit? We will look at cutting-edge information about the process of change, help you evaluate where you are at, and teach you what tools you can use to move you forward in
Not sure what this Health Coaching or Energy Healing is all about? I will be happy to give you a free 30-minute consultation (update: if still offered on website) to help you decide if you want to work with me.
You have nothing to lose! And lots to learn. Talk to you soon.
In good health,
Professional Health Coach
