Empowering young women to overcome digestive and mental distress, so they can have clarity, creativity, and freedom in their own thoughts, freedom in their own body, freedom to pursue their purpose, to love life again.
Close your eyes and imagine the best version of you possible. That’s who you really are, let go of any part of you that doesn’t believe it.” – C. Assad
I like stories; a lot. And, everybody has one; everyone has a certain set of experiences that only he or she has lived, seen, and felt. Everyone has their own set of genes, memories, perceptions, hopes, and struggles that create their outlook on life, and therein also create their mind and body health. Sometimes, these stories can be segmented into two different categories: one of suffering under false programmed thinking and one of holistic health centered in truth. And I personally love hearing these stories, these different takes on life, because I want to help people swap out the programmed false story for the one of truth. On that note, here is a brief snapshot of my health journey; a story that ignited a passion to help others be the best version of themselves; to be it, and believe it, to live in their story of truth. My name is Cathryn Fowler, and my health story can be segmented into two main categories: “Before my South Africa Trip” and “After my South Africa Trip.” My particular unique set of circumstances and feelings included seeing my father for the first time and acquiring some sort of “mystery illness,” later, somewhat loosely explained as Leaky Gut and Ulcerative Colitis. A lifestyle of somewhat questionable nutrition + an emotional situation for my sensitive soul (hello INFP personality) = disaster. After my trip, I began to feel “thin, sort of stretched, like butter scraped over too much bread.” (Tolkein nerd here!). Truthfully, though, that phrase summed it up quite nicely. I lost who I was, I slowly lost bits and pieces of myself to uncontrollable digestive issues and overwhelming brain fog and anxiety. Desparate for relief, I sought answers from Donna Gates “Body Ecology,” colon hydrotherapies, herbs, acupuncture, homeopaths, and immersing myself in the principles of Weston A. Price. Through these years of searching for answers, gobbling up every bit of information I could gleam from books and holistic practices, and graduating from the Nutritional Therapy Association as a nutritional therapist,
I can say thankfully and, for the most part, I’m free from those digestive and mental shadows that once claimed my happiness, that once robbed me of my life.
Now I am properly fueled to pursue my purpose to the fullest! By eliminating toxic foods and toxic thoughts, and incorporating nutritional therapy wisdom, I am where I am today. Free. So if you have anxiety, bloating, brain fog, and a toxic pattern of thinking, I’d love to listen to your story and help you. Because I’ve been there, I’m still there some days! If you want help navigating all the confusion in the health world and discover what foods and needs are best for YOU, I really want to help. I want to help give you back your purposeful, creative, and passionate life! I truly want to help you just be, be your marvelous wonderful self, to thrive in YOUR purpose.
