During client calls over the past few days, I've noticed a trend about the healing process. Can nutrition 'cure' my ailments and will my symptoms ever go away? Is it possible to restore health to perfection? Why can't my doctors - even Stanford - tell me what's wrong with me?
One client added, "How is it that years of doctors and thousands of dollars spent to feel better had little effect, but your program changed my life in only 6 weeks?"
Those who have taken my program know my opinion on these questions. Nonetheless, I can make no such claims formally due to the crazy restrictions on holistic health and wellness. But do I believe we can restore wellness? YES! But we should stop blaming doctors as unable to cure you.
Why aren't we instantly better then? Why is it a journey? Why would there be relapses? In the above quote, we can see why. I also teach whole body healing in the Mind.Body.Spirit section of the Restoring Wellness 6-week program, which describes the psychosomatic stuff we must realize.
I'd like to trust that we healers (doctors, chiros, coaches, nurses, etc) are sometimes guided at unexpected times by unexplained things. I understand there are money hungry practitioners who are going to prescribe and 'code' you to no end; And I realize they are fueled by greed and also a lack of training. But I also believe they have become conditioned by the expectations of patients to cure and diagnose. If they are paid to label and code you, that's what they aim for.
Healing comes from withIN, not withOUT. One can be guided with all the best direction but without listening within, without allowing the healing and believing in your own body's ability to heal, no healer - allopathic or not - can do it for you. It requires a lifestyle change, but also an outlook change.
This blog is on the many avenues that interest Coach Stephanie. Subjects are a vast array of hobbies, career, desires, coaching and lifestyle.
"I am here for support, guidance, education and as an example of what works for ME. What works for me may work for you or at least provide you with a starting point from which to explore. I am discovering what works for me at every moment. I don’t have it all figured out, but I do feel I have a teaching and healing nature with which I am here to share. In this blog, I offer you a view into my practice of being that which makes my experience - MINE."
Certified Holistic Health and Nutrition Practitioner, Stephanie Austin, was guided into holistic living in 2002 when she was diagnosed with Dermatomyositis, an uncommon autoimmune disease affecting the skin and muscle.
Opting for education rather than medication, Austin enrolled in a Holistic Health Practitioner program in 2004 after realizing she'd been gifted with disease so that she may learn to heal herself and later teach others to do the same.
Since her education, Austin has released over 60 pounds and conquered years of junk food addiction through holistic healing and nutrition techniques that she now passes onto others through her business, Wellness by Mother Nature.
Austin has been the Director of Education and Board Member for the nonprofit organization, The Wellness Kitchen. She is the recipient of the 2015 Outstanding Graduate Award from www.ACHS.edu.
Austin is an author, coach and speaker who empowers people on the healing value of nutrition and the innate self-healing abilities of a body in balance.
She has helped hundreds of people achieve balance through methods such as meditation, herbs, movement, supplements, aromatherapy, homeopathy, nutrition, mind-body connection, energy healing and by closely listening to the needs of her clients.
It is awareness that brings change, not your effort. Why does it happen through awareness? - because the awareness changes you. And when you are different, the world is different. It is not a question of creating a different world, it is only a question of creating a different you. You are your world; so if you change, the world changes.
