Sure, you might be surviving but are you really thriving?
You want to feel less stressed, feel more in control over your body, emotions, and have the energy for the things and people you love.
You want to leave behind health and weight struggles, and confidently take care of you without overwhelm and confusion.
But more than anything else, you want to feel at peace in your body; physically, mentally and spiritually.
I know to others it might seem like you have life all figured out but I see you:
- Approaching each day like an assault course that needs to be conquered, fielding curveballs from left and right, and beating yourself up because of it.
- Relying on convenience foods and takeout because you don’t have the energy and you’re not sure you can make that big change in your kitchen.
- Collapsing into bed wired with worry or pain, numbed with wine, sugar or Alieve.
- Waking up each morning feeling just as exhausted as you were when you went to bed, instead of clear-headed and ready to face the day.
- Fighting an emotional and physical battle with issues like endometriosis, unexplained infertility, thyroid disease,weight-loss resistance, and symptoms of hormone imbalance.
And that’s where I come in love…
Hi, I’m Khush Sra, Registered Holistic Nutritionist and Mind-Body Coach, and I’m about to show you how you can transform your energy, body and life.
Ever since I was a little girl I’ve been asking “why?”
As I grew up and reached my late teens, I started suffering from hormone imbalances. Month in, month out, I suffered from chronic pain from my endometriosis and when the doctors couldn’t really help, I asked: “why?”
Why, after five laparoscopies, several prescriptions, and more specialist appointments than I could even count was I struggling to manage my painful symptoms and feeling like finding a solution was hopeless.
One day I was frustrated with everyone, but mostly myself. My life was not what I dreamed of – I was always at the doctor’s or ER, feeling out of control and lost, missing out on school, work, life and my relationships were suffering. I had to take back control.
At this point, I was a young adult with a husband and career, I was ready to start a family, in spite of the fact that several doctors had told me motherhood might not be a possibility for me. I was in the fertility clinic, what seemed like everyday, getting poked and proded everywhere…money spent, tears shed and even more hopeless.
So I went all into looking at alternative health and nutrition. Applying the same level of rigor that I applied every day in my professional career, I set about researching nutrition and meeting with many practitioners.
I quit sugar, gluten, and packaged processed foods and began eating more homemade whole foods such as quinoa, wild fish and fresh organic produce. Sure, at first it was challenging to change my eating habits but my tastebuds quickly sharpened up, along with my kitchen skills. I even quit the gym and started yoga instead.
Within 8 weeks, my painful symptoms began to subside and a year later I discovered I was pregnant with our first child! We are now blessed to have three awesome kids.
For the next decade of my life, I focused on holistic living. My purpose was to nourish my family, give them the best possible start in life, and teach them how to treat their bodies with love and respect.
Several years ago, in 2012, my mother was diagnosed with a stage IV brain tumor. As you can imagine, her diagnosis came as a huge shock for our family. I’ll never forget the day her specialist told us: “Similar diagnoses have an outlook of about nine months to live.”
So began my fascination with the power of integrated cancer care. I researched everything I could about cancer cells, the way they metabolized food, and came up with a nutritional plan to support my mom’s treatment and healing program. At the time of writing, almost five years later, I’m pleased to say my mom is still with us and her commitment to clean eating continues to inspire me, each and every day.
My mom’s illness made me realize just how we never really know what’s around the next corner. When I stepped back and considered my own life, I realized how stressed out I was about things that ultimately didn’t really matter to me.
While there were plenty of amazing things about my career as a Project Manager, my true purpose was to become a Registered Holistic Nutritionist so I could help others, the same way that I had helped myself and my mom.
Every day, I thank myself for having the courage to move past my fears and change the direction of my life. It wasn’t easy – there were plenty of ups and downs – I don’t regret a single lesson, no matter how tough it felt in the moment.
I’ve learned to deal with be OK with judgment. I’ve learned that practicing humility actually helps more than it hurts. And by leaning in during times of adversity, I’ve learned that I’m far more resilient than I could ever have imagined.
Above all else, I now know for sure that I won’t wake up one day as a bitter old woman, filled with regret, because I now get to do what I love every day: inspire women like you to live healthy and joyful lives. So you can show up as the content women and calm mom you want to be.
In 2018 I set on another mission: To empower endo sisters naturally. I knew one day I would come full circle and be blessed with the opportunity to share my journey in depth and inspire those with the disease so they too can have a brighter path.
