How is your New Year going so far? Are you keeping the resolutions you set? If not, you are not alone. Every New Year, 87% of adults create new goals and resolutions. There is about a 54% chance you will be unsuccessful and give up by the end of January. Research shows that 95% of New Year’s resolutions are health and fitness related, but after just three months, only 10% of people think their resolution will last.
Why do I share this? Because most of us want to be healthier, happier, more fit, and truly feel our best, but the data shows a New Year’s resolution is not the solution. What I have found to be the best approach is focusing on small habits and creating accountability in your life. It is the healthy habits that will continue to bring success and the accountability that will inch you forward to achieving your goals.
I may be a bit biased, but having a naturopathic doctor in your corner to help set these habits in motion and offer you accountability can make all the difference in working to optimize your health.
Naturopathic medicine has so much to offer.
It provides individualized care and focuses on creating the conditions for health to support the body in healing itself. This is one of the things I love most about this medicine.
When someone comes to Upper Peninsula Natural Wellness for guidance on their health journey, more often than not they have many challenges taking place. My goal is to implement the most gentle intervention to make the biggest shift in their health. One way I do this is through the SHAPE ReClaimed program.
It’s a health restoration and lifestyle modification program that combines a patented homeopathic supplement with the nutrition protocol for a simple, effective and safe way to achieve optimal health. The goal is to teach you new skills and help you embrace a healthy lifestyle. We work on creating those small HABITS that will be a part of your life well after you complete the program.
I find this program simple and effective. It is organized into three phases: cleanse, stabilize, and live. These three phases are designed to first balance your brain chemistry, strengthen your immune system, and cleanse your body of excess weight and toxins. Then you reincorporate new foods and begin to stabilize your weight and brain health, and lastly, learn to maintain this healthy lifestyle.
This program is customized to your bio-individual needs,
meaning I use your health history, symptoms, and urinalysis results to adjust this protocol specifically for you. This will ensure you feel satiated and achieve optimum results. You receive your own program guidebook, nutrition guide, dietary supplement, and any other recommendations I have found beneficial for your healing journey. A urinalysis is used to measure your improvements, and we meet weekly to answer questions, hold you accountable, establish positive health habits, and learn how to take control of your health.
Individuals have experienced a decrease in inflammation, fewer joint problems, better digestion, normalized blood pressure, lower cholesterol and triglycerides, balanced blood sugar, cognitive improvements, reduced dependence on prescription medications, optimal weight, and better overall health.
I look forward to the opportunity to help you on your health journey and would love to be a part of “Creating Your Best Me in 2023.” I work with individuals locally in my office, and remotely via phone or Zoom. Call, text or email the office to schedule a free twenty-minute consultation to see if you are a good fit and ready to take control of your health.
