Walk away from dieting and other quick fixes into sustainable health and vitality

Isn’t it time to take a more loving and less punishing approach to how we view eating?

  • release yourself from deprivation and dieting
  • discover your unique dietary requirements for nourishment and pleasure
  • tune up your digestion to improve your health and vitality
  • learn how your thoughts, beliefs and feelings impact your metabolism and overall health

Break Through Your Barriers With Workable Strategies

Thank you for the opportunity to share with you my passion and belief that how we view food, our “Eating Psychology”, needs a reset.

Dieting since I was 15 years old, I lost and gained the same 20-50 pounds over and over again. As a Registered Nurse, I’ve studied the science of what to eat and why staying active is important.

But none of the dogma about food and exercise brought about the results I wanted.

Unfortunately, like too many of us, I developed all the wrong ideas. If I failed to eat or behave like a “good girl” according to someone else’s standards. I told myself I had no willpower, I lost my self-confidence, and lived with constant guilt and self criticism. I thought I was “broken” and a failure.

It’s time to cut through all that!

There Is More To Health And Vitality Than Food And Exercise

In fact, food and exercise are only half of the equation. Other pieces include:

  • eating under stress versus relaxation
  • the timing of our meals
  • whether we experience pleasure when we eat

More often than not, our challenges with eating habits, weight and health are connected to work, relationships with partners and family, or lack thereof.

How often do we make choices we know aren’t the best; then beat ourselves up?

Fighting and attacking our challenges with food is a dead end strategy. You can escape the vicious cycle of toxic nutritional self-sabotage and achieve your weight, image and other goals with nutrition for your body & soul.

I went from being so tired I could hardly work, I had gained sooo much weight, plus my hair was falling out, to GREAT energy and
I’ve shed those extra pounds.

This path is not a quick fix but it is a permanent one: feeding your body naturally instead of poisoning it with prescriptions. It just makes sense.

When I started with Hands On Health Care, I felt weak, was shaking a lot and lacked balance. I had high blood pressure, was severely overweight and my gastroenterology doctor said I had liver cirrhosis.

Dr. C recommended a program that included working with Phyllis to learn what to eat and not eat. As I met with Phyllis, I transitioned to a meat protein and vegetable diet—what a challenge to remove the gluten, dairy, sugar, and unhealthy fats! But I was feeling so bad that I decided to do it.

Phyllis showed me how simple it was to make foods like bone broth and coconut milk kefir that would help me heal. I learned that nuts were a great base for many things and almond cheese is a delicious non-dairy food.

I developed a recipe for AM green smoothies: romaine lettuce, spinach, strawberries, blueberries, cinnamon, vanilla and almond milk or kefir; blended until smooth and sometimes with Chia seeds or flax meal. Tastes great and gives me energy all morning!

Dr. Childers and Phyllis have shown me what to do to become more healthy! Their care and compassion gives me support and I’ve learned to take care of myself in natural ways. My blood pressure is now 120/80 and I’ve lost 65 pounds!! I truly appreciate what HOHC has done for me. —Jo I
