Gut health is connected to overall health. ๐ŸŒฑ
I wanted to pass Brianneโ€™s story along in case it could help you, or someone you love.... โ™ฅ๏ธ โ€œMy name is Brianne Coolidge and Iโ€™m a mom to three kids ages 4, 5, and 7. Iโ€™m the very proud wife of a dairy farmer. ๐Ÿฎ Our days are crazy and hectic, and I canโ€™t image it any other way! I love alternative holistic ways to keep my kids healthy. That being said, Iโ€™m huge researcher and had become an even bigger skeptic. In the matter of a three-and-a-half-year time span, I had been diagnosed with three different autoimmune disorders. Along with that, my oldest daughter has severe allergies, both with food and seasonally. Living on a dairy farm became a constant struggle for her to even just go outside without histamine responses. ๐Ÿ‘Ž

With three kids, we were constantly picking something up and then passing it around for months. We had tried everything. ๐Ÿ˜žElimination diets, extra supplements and vitamins, and essential oils. Despite trying to be natural, and get my kids healthy, we seemed to still be struggling with our health issues, and just seemed to be missing something. ๐Ÿ’

When I had a few friends mention plant based supplements to say I was skeptical, is an understatement. The only reason I tried it was to say I had, and knowing I could get my money back when it didnโ€™t work, and not add it to the closet of products we had tried at the beginning, was an added bonus. ๐Ÿ™Œ I joined as a closet user, and was never going to share anything. Well, here I am, and I want to shout these products from rooftops! ๐Ÿ’ฅ

I no longer suffer from my disorders. I donโ€™t feel like I am living in the mom fog, tired and rundown. I donโ€™t binge on cravings after the kids go to bed. ๐ŸŽ‰ And BEST of all for this momma, my daughter is off all treatments prescribed from her allergists. ๐Ÿ˜ When we do pick up something, we have gotten our immune systems healthy enough to fight it off so much quicker. My only regret is not paying attention to gut health sooner, and realizing just how many issues there are that are connected to it!โ€ โค

Did you know that current research shows that inflammation and dysbiosis in your gut have been linked to depression and anxiety? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Marissa's story amazes me, take a look...

Did you know that current research shows that inflammation and dysbiosis in your gut have been linked to depression and anxiety? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

marissa's story amazes me, take a look... "anxiety crippled me for 3 years. i couldn’t leave my house, i rarely ate, i stayed in bed nearly 24 hours a day, my friendships faded out, i was depressed and thought my life was destined to this routine. convinced i would eventually be put somewhere and die from a lack of life due to anxiety. ๐Ÿ˜ž i finally gave in and started medication. it was doing the job well but i didn’t want to have to be on meds forever. i wanted more children and the drug that was working for me cannot be taken in pregnancy.
.
.
.
enter a wonderful line of plant-based supplemts. ๐ŸŒฑ i had no idea that anxiety was directly related to my gut, to my blood sugar levels, to hormonal imbalances. i had such a lack of knowledge on how to take my health into my own hands without the use of artificial ingredients.
.
.
.

i’m proud to say today i am completely off medication and functioning fully, even better than when i was on medicine! ๐Ÿ™Œ i no longer fear when a dose is missed because i know my body is balanced. i sleep, i eat healthy, i interact with my friends and family, i sit in the front row at my church, which if you’ve ever had anxiety you know being in the front of anywhere is hard the less attention on you the better. .
.
.
i’m a youth leader, a wife who cooks and cleans, a better sister, a more fun daughter. i leave my bed! i could go on for days about my favorite supplements and how incredible they are but i will leave it here! seriously take the plunge and try it out. your life is worth it!” ๐Ÿ’›

โ˜๏ธA lovingly captured moment & one of my most treasured memories from the life changing @ourhopeforhealth retreat on Elcho Island last year. ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ Our Yolngu brothers & sisters need our support & the dedicated team behind HFH do too, so that they can afford to continue to reignite the vibrant health that once belonged to & empowered our indigenous whฤnau prior to the debilitating introduction of western frankenfoods to their beloved homeland. Now I'm a born & raised Aotearoa girl & the Maori culture is well & truly vibrant within my heart, even though I'm not of Maori decent & I'm ever so keen to learn all the wisdom & traditions I can from the wonderful people of this land too, but without our assistance to reawaken deep connection, I can't even begin to comprehend what the future holds. Please jump over to @ourhopeforhealth & gift whatever you can to keep this pure & infinitely momentous dream alive! #hopeforhealth

I have heaps of time for this mob @ourhopeforhealth doing amazing stuff for the Yolngu people up north. If you are struggling to think of a gift idea for anyone this Chrissy check this out. 
Indigenous Australians have a life expectancy 17 years less than other Australians. Chronic disease is responsible for 80% of the mortality gap. 
This Christmas we hope to raise $4000 to cover the cost of some important retreat medical equipment. Any funds raised above this will contribute to other retreat needs, of which there are many! We are establishing a base to run regular retreats. These educational intensives use the Yolngu traditional diet as a framework to address the chronic disease epidemic facing remote Indigenous communities. Make a tax deductible donation to Hope for Health and we will send you a Christmas e-card to represent the gift. A gift of giving. Donate here https://www.hopeforhealth.com.au/donate/ #hopeforhealth #aboriginalaustralia #respectcreation #respectitsmagic

I can so relate to Sarahโ€™s story.  Holidays were such a trigger for me in years past because I made it about the food. This was the first year where I fully enjoyed a holiday. I left full. Full of hope, full of thankfulness, full of excitement, full of good memories and full joy from having so much fun.  I didnโ€™t over indulged, I didnโ€™t feel guilty and I didnโ€™t leave consumed with fear of how much weight I gained. This year I experienced Gods goodness in a new way.  Here is Sarahโ€™s story! ๐Ÿ‘‰๐ŸปThis year, Sarah has vowed to make Thanksgiving about giving thanks for her blessings and building memories with family and friends! She has discovered that the holidays do not need to be focused on food -- once you change your mindset, you can truly enjoy your life to the fullest! ๐Ÿค—

The photo on the left was taken last Thanksgiving when Sarah began her lifestyle change. The photo on the right? She is holding 65 lbs of turkey instead of wearing 65 extra lbs on her body! ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰#hopeforhealth #inspire #motivation #beautifulyou  #giveyourselfthegiftofhealth #lifelongtransformation #transformed #itsaprocess #healthymind #healthybody #healthylifestyle ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿผ Can you think of a better gift ๐ŸŽ to give yourself?๐Ÿ”ฅ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ˜ You are worth it.

Hey guys! Iโ€™m using my first post to give a little background on myself and elaborate on my purpose here. -
My name is Hope, and for a few years now Iโ€™ve been on a quest for a #healthier lifestyle. I came to realize rather quickly that true health is multi-faceted and is influenced physically, mentally, emotionally & spiritually. My #enlightened perspective on holistic health and wellness has honestly transformed my life in ways that I feel are necessary to share with others. Since Iโ€™ve awakened to the true meaning of balanced health, my hunger for information and therefore amount of related knowledge have only continued to grow.
-
We could all use some help with healing in some aspect of our lives every now and then. The western health model tends to treat humans as machines, fixing or tweaking one malfunctioning part as if itโ€™s not intertwined to a #balanced whole. All aspects of a person should be examined to truly address a health issue. Being equipped with the knowledge and tools to empower yourself in which ever aspect you may be struggling with makes a world of difference. My posts will share parts of my journey to motivate and to elaborate on gems of knowledge that I gain along the way to promote the improved health of us all.
-
In no way am I saying Iโ€™m perfect. I simply want to bring as many of you with me on this quest as I can and show just how easy it can be to be a #sustainably and naturally healthy whole.โค๏ธ

Some things about me:
* I have bachelors of science in nursing (#BSN) degree ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿพโ€โš•๏ธ
* Iโ€™m entering the field of mental health ๐Ÿง 
* I eat a plant-based diet - no meat for about 2 years ๐ŸŒฑ
* Iโ€™m 5โ€™8โ€, 22 years old, and have #Nigerian ancestry/culture ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฌ
* I love #nature & believe it provides us with the things needed for health ๐ŸŒฟ
* My preferred forms of exercise are high intensity interval training (#HIIT) and #weightlifting ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿพ
* Iโ€™m very open minded & promote effective methods to achieve the different aspects of health - no matter how unpopular ๐ŸŒš
* I only advocate for things after having done proper research ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿพโ€๐Ÿ’ป
* I see spirituality as a #universal human experience - not tied to any one specific affiliation ๐ŸŒ
