Who's Behind Mind-Body Clarity
I’m a freelance writer, reseracher, and designer at Mind-Body Copy.
I have been in the wellness field for over 20 years, first as a fitness instructor, then as a sports massage therapist, and finally as a Pilates trainer. Now I’m working on my plant-based nutrition certification.
My Journey Back to health
Once I realized processed food addiction was a real thing my whole life made sense. Emotions played a big part of course, but there was a chemical/physical component I wasn’t fully aware of.
Food-like substances can change your brain for the worse, stimulating the pleasure centers in almost the same way as heroin and cocaine in those who are sensitive to them. And no, I am not overstating it. Brain scans show similar results with both street drugs and processed foods on people who are sensitive. Some people are more susceptable than others.
Once I understood how processed food was effecting my brain, I was able to stay on a whole foods diet a lot more of the time. Within a few months I dropped 40 pounds without having to diet or restrict my eating. I also improved my symptoms for life long chronic fatigue, depression, and fibromyalgia.
