Hi, my name is Julie Getty. Here is my story and how I became involved in healing myself the holistic way and helping other people do the same:
I was always of average weight for my height although, like many others, I always thought I could stand to lose a few pounds so I tried several diets, diet pills/aids and, yes, even contraptions! Nothing seemed to have any lasting effect.
As most of you, I have been through many trials and tribulations. Because of all the stress I didn’t eat as healthy as I should have. As a matter of fact I loved fast food! Hamburgers, French fries, burritos — pretty much anything deep fried — I craved it! And vegetables never crossed my lips unless it was iceberg lettuce smothered in ranch dressing. Well that was great until I hit my late 40’s. Somehow, my joints were just not allowing me to be as active as I was used to be! In terrible pain, I couldn’t exercise, or walk even short distances. Within 4 years I had knee and hip replacements followed by two back surgeries. Needless to say that while the surgeries slowed me down, my eating habits were full-speed-ahead! Plus I was taking everything from anti-depressants to pain pills 10 to 15 different pills a day! So guess what to my surprise, I gained a LOT of weight. One day I looked in the mirror and finally faced up to the fact that I was tremendously overweight and felt simply rotten.
I knew that I had to change something because if I managed to live to retirement age, I wouldn’t be in good enough shape to enjoy it. That was the day I decided that if I wanted to feel better about myself and if I wanted my body to heal, it would take some major changes. So I’ve devoted the last couple of years regaining my health. I have lost 40 pounds and I feel better than I have in years! I am now off all medications and feeling wonderful! I get up bright and early every morning looking forward to what the day has to hold for me! And, better yet, I feel good about myself.
My work is not about dieting. It’s about discovering the Wonderful Healthy Habits that work best for you.
You can be wonderfully healthy and happy. Let’s start the journey together today!
