WooHoo..........I'm so excited to start this new journey of helping to educate and enlighten the world through health and nutrition!!!!!!! Let me start with an introduction of who I am and what I do for a living and what led me to creating this blog so you all have a better understanding of why I feel that helping others was my true purpose in life.
My name is Brandy Augustine and I am a natural health care practitioner in sunny San Diego California. I have been in practice for just under 10 years now and have degrees ranging from a Bachelors in Business, Masters and PhD in Holistic Nutrition, Herbal Medicine, and Applied Kinesiology.
I honestly never thought that I would pick this path as my career choice and end up cultivating an insatiable passion for health and wellness and helping heal and educate others in this amazing field. This passion grew from overcoming my own debilitating health challenges and wanting to help the world do the same.
I started out in life in the 70's and was raise on white bread, processedsugar added peanut butter, and cheap toxic lunch meats. The only vegetables I ever knew came from a can or what I was told was lettuce, but what was really a flavorless colorless nearly nutritionless iceburg lettuce drenched with sugar laden bottled salad dressings. I didn't know that the diet I was consuming would later in life be a major accomplice to my drastically failing health condition. My family and I didnt know that all of the health conditions such as extreme allergies, eczema, and constant dental cavities that started as a baby were a direct result of my white bread diet.
As my life progressed and I got a bit older and had children of my own I finally hit a point when life started crumbling for me. My health conditions increased adding daily headaches, heart palpatations, auto immune issues, extreme hormonal imbalance, joint pains, and much more. Almost debilitating and leading to a life of depression and hopelessness I decided that if Western Doctors couldnt help me then I was going to take my health into my own hands. This is when I switched career paths and dove head first into the wonderful world of nourishing and repairing the body through nutrition.
Through my health journey and the education I sought out to fix it, I have had the incredible privilege of helping thousands of other lovely souls eliminate their miserable health limitations and achieve a greater peace and wholeness within their own body's and lives enable them to reach their true wellness potential and live bountiful and healthy lives.
I love my job so much and feel like I have so much to share with people that I decided to start this blog as an avenue to spread the knowledge that I was so fortunate to have gained over the years.
Thank you so much for following my blog and I hope to help as many of you beautiful and wonderful souls out there that I can. If you have questions, suggestions, or just want to share your story with me please leave a comment below.
