I discovered how to create a healthy, toxic free lifestyle that the whole family can benefit from.
I created the Wellness Warriors Revolution to empower, educate and support moms to do the same with their families. After all, healthy moms create healthy families.
I know it can be overwhelming so allow me to be your guide.
My friends call me Steph or NamaSteph.
I am a Wife, Mom, Yoga Instructor, Children’s Health Advocate and Certified Integrative Nutrition Coach.
But most importantly, I am a woman with the same challenges and fears as YOU!
I understand first hand how personal struggles and the stress of raising a child can feel heavy.
Being a mom, all you want is to keep your family safe and for your children to grow up strong and healthy. You’re doing everything in your power to take care of your family and still be able to care for yourself but you’re struggling.
Oftentimes you end up eating the leftover food from your child’s plate and go the whole day without doing anything that fills your cup. You often go to bed feeling guilty, depleted and wrestling with worry. Your brain is like a computer with a hundred tabs open thinking about how you can do better.
How can you protect your children and keep them healthy?
Are the foods your kids eat safe? What about the personal care and cleaning products you use in your home?
How can you balance and juggle all the moving parts of your life and show up as your best self?
Who can you believe these days? Where can you find unbiased, real information that you can trust?
You’re worried about your own health, too. You’re busy with the stuff of life. You know you should be taking better care of yourself and you want to be there to see your kids grow up.
You know all the things you should be doing, but you are so busy worrying about everyone else that often you are at the bottom of the list. Moms are the glue that hold the family together so if you don’t take care of you it’s impossible to show up for others.
You are running on empty… you wake up already exhausted, your pee is the color of a yellow highlighter, you’re bloated, backed up, checked out and sick and tired of feeling this way. The overwhelem can often feel paralyzing.
Mama, it’s time to take a breath. Time to put yourself back on the list!
I know exactly how you feel because I’ve been there. I am a mom just like you. Raising a family in this toxic world can be terrifying. Just because you carry it well doesn’t mean it’s not heavy.
I know you’re worried about your family and yourself. Constant stress can wreak havoc on the body. After all health and happiness are inside jobs. Prolonged stress can lead to adrenal fatigue, emotional eating, weight gain, sudden hair loss, sleepless nights, constipation, nausea, loss of appetite, uneasiness, headaches and SO MUCH MORE!!I
It’s during stressful times where we desperately need to care for and love ourselves first. What you know isn’t important, what matters is what you do on a daily basis. Being gentle with yourself, working through the emotions instead of avoiding them and practicing self care are vital to your health and the health of your family. After all healthy moms create healthy families.
Trust me – I’ve been where you are, and I can tell you that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
It’s time to shift from the worrier to the warrior and I’m here to support you every step of the way.
I used to never worry about my health or wellbeing. I thought I was the picture of health. But here’s the thing – “health” doesn’t mean not being sick.
Just like happiness, health is an inside job too. And I learned that the hard way when I began the difficult journey to motherhood.
The first time I found out I was pregnant, I was over the moon with excitement! The only thing missing from our life was the baby that would complete our family. But life had other plans for us – the pregnancy wasn’t viable.
I was devastated.
I focused on nutrition and health, dedicated to learning everything I could to protect myself and my future pregnancies from loss.
Soon, I was pregnant again, and this time, I brought a beautiful baby boy into the world! He is my greatest gift and the motivation for every aspect of my work and my health.
I had it all figured out, eating right, exercising, starting my own successful business – we were healthy, secure, and oh so confident that when I was ready to have another baby it would just happen. If I could do it once I could surely do it again.
Every loss tested my joy, love for self and connection to others. From the outside I had it all together but I was suffering in silence. To get to the other side I had to ride the roller coaster of emotions and allow myself to feel in order to heal.
Then, my son was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder and it rocked me to my core.
There is nothing more powerful than a mom’s desire to protect her child.
I began to ravage the internet in search of answers. I became obsessed with wanting to know what was happening. What caused my son to have this health issue? Why was I struggling with infertility? What was happening to our health? I thought I was doing all the right things.
I began to throw myself into research and learning. I discovered how toxic our world is. I mean, I knew junk food and fast food are bad. But I had no idea how toxic and dangerous even “healthy” foods were. Factor in pollution in our air and water, chemicals in our cleaning products and toiletries – our world is poisoning us! Our children are living in toxic soup.
Specifically, these toxins are attacking our immune systems – think about it, the immune system is designed to fight off threats, and because we’re constantly under attack from chemicals, poisons, and toxins, it eventually wears out!
Combine that with the food we eat that is damaging our gut where 80 percent of our immune system grows and develops…
No wonder we’re all so sick!
Not just my family – think about how many people are suffering from autoimmune diseases like fibromyalgia. Think about how many people are getting cancer – young, healthy people, too! Obesity is at record highs, diabetes, high blood pressure, anxiety, depression – This didn’t just come out of nowhere.
I had to fight back to protect my family and resolved to cleanse our bodies and home of these toxins, restore our gut health and rebuild our immune systems.
I enrolled in the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and became a Certified Integrative Nutrition Coach in 2013 to learn as much as I could to protect and heal my family.
When I joined the Institute for Integrative Nutrition I knew I had found my healthy living “spiritual home.” I discovered the truth behind real healthy living. I realized that toxicity exists in many forms, in the lies printed on the labels of foods we trust to be good for us, in the chemicals we believe will cleanse our homes keeping our family healthy, and even in our own mind as we doubt ourselves and succumb to fear.
