Are you nourishing yourself at every level? Body, mind and spirit?
Hi, I am Krystal, owner of Little Bird Holistics Ltd. and a Certified Holistic Nutritional Consultant™.
My training in nutrition included a number of specialties including autoimmune and gut health but my passion for self-care and cancer-care is where my heart lies.
My true calling is working with women like myself. I was a busy mom, working full time and trying to meet everyone's needs first. Hustling hard, I was soon trying to pour from an empty cup. Sound familiar???
Next came a kick in the ass in the form of cancer. What a way for my body to make me slow the F* down. With burn out and cancer came many realizations for me and, many choices.
• I chose to no longer be a victim in my body
• I chose to become a cancer thriver and not a cancer survivor
Perhaps it sounds "crunchy" but, I truly believe that a healthy life is all about balance.
I am slowly regaining mine or, maybe I actually was never truly in balance before?
Cancer survivors often talk about a "new normal" post-treatment. For me, I am working on balance in my body, mind and spirit; a holistic approach. This is my "new normal"; finding happy.
Currently I am pursuing my studies as a Holistic Nutrition Practitioner/Consultant. I am more aware now of my actions and their effects on myself and the people and world around me. I am more aware of how my body runs as a complex machine and how to fuel it for peak performance on physical, cognitive an emotional levels. I love learning about the neurological and physiological relationships that exist in our bodies and how nutrition impacts and supports these interactions and functions. It is like magic and science all rolled up in one.
And it really does prove; you can not pour from an empty cup.
