My story is a familiar one. I was active and healthy throughout life, but sometime during my 40s, I started to decline physically. Experts told me what to eat and how to exercise, but no matter what I did, my body seemed to break down more. That’s when I set out to find new ways to improve my health.
I took classes, studied my own body and experimented with food, adaptogenic plants and nutraceuticals, hormone replacement therapy and strength training. Over time, I learned I have a very sensitive body, and if I don’t give it the right food, exercise, and proper rest, it becomes irritated. I also started to recognize the subtle ways my body was telling me what it needed that I had been ignoring for so many years. The smarter and more diligent I became about responding to my body’s cues, the better the results… the bigger the transformation. Now, in my 50s, I’ve cured myself of several ailments, eliminated pain in my knees and hips, achieved several strength records, and I’ve even learned how to snatch.
