If you suffer from niggling symptoms and never quite feel in best health, you probably put it down to your busy life, reach for the painkillers, and try to get on with your day as best you can.
But did you know that your body is giving you these warning signs and signals that there might be an underlying dysfunction? Your job is to learn to listen to the messages your body is giving you, understand why this is happening, and do something about it.
That’s what Jackie Bowker, the mum of a 3 and 6 year old, did. After suffering from adrenal depletion, chronic fatigue syndrome and a decades-long disordered eating and sugar addiction, Jackie learnt first-hand the profound power of food as medicine. As a result of her illness, Jackie became passionate about restoring bodies back to balance to achieve optimal health, and became a Functional Nutritionist.
Jackie went on to establish Hello Happy where, amongst other things, runs a transformative 21 Day Nutrition Course and Plan to detox, reset and revitalise your body to live a healthier life.
In this episode, Jackie will help you identify the root cause of your dysfunction and will set you on the path to heal the body through nutrition, without the need for synthetic drugs or surgery. Her philosophy is simple: the symptoms you’re experiencing like digestive issues, weight gain, infertility, adult acne, anxiety etc, result from weaknesses in the body’s physiological foundations. And it can all be fixed by cleaning up your diet and lifestyle.
Follow Jackie’s advice and you’ll start to feel vibrant again. You’ll shed excess weight, look and feel fantastic and watch niggly problems melt away. As one of her clients so eloquently put it, “Jackie has turned my sluggish body into a strong, lean, high functioning machine and I am now so much better equipped to deal with life’s challenges such as raising a small family of 5 with 3 children under 3.”
