Be a Health Adventurer

Be a Health Adventurer

This is not about subtracting experience in your life; this is about the addition of health adventure INTO your life!!

An adventure is participating in exciting things and most of all the feeling that one gets from these experiences. Most people will not make health changes because they know better.  In health adventures, people take action, experiment, have fun and make changes because they feel so much better!

Consider taking your own health into your own hands and dare to make it an adventure!

 

 

Program

A Health Adventure Designed and Guided for You

The media tells us what to eat, how to look, what to wear and even how to think about life! You need an adventurous guide that said NO! to all the bad advice. We are all biological individuals comprised of unique DNA. If you took an adventure down the Amazon River you would require an experienced Amazon River guide. I guide you on your own health adventure based on my own experience and your uniqueness.

Feel Great, Look Great and most importantly continue to Do Great!

I specialize in cellular nutrition, low glycemic index eating & super foods.

Hello

About the Guide

I am Kristin(e), a Canadian of Icelandic descent. The Icelandic accent on the last I of my name in my logo makes it pronounced Kristin(e). My grandparents were immigrants from Iceland and Denmark and that makes it easy for me to understand where my genes came from and why my jeans fit great now. It is also in my blood to seek adventure!

My own health adventure started early as an elite athlete in competitive swimming and Olympic Canoe/Kayak. I knew from a young age that what I put in my body directly affected my performance. Once past the 40 year mark, what I thought were good eating habits (even taught to me in my Kinesiology Degree) were not working anymore. I was plagued with upper respiratory allergy symptoms that prevented me from working out, being anywhere around cats and resulted in chronic general discomfort. Can you say ‘fat, slow and snotty’?

I had had enough! This is when I began my own health adventure, experimenting, adding new changes, experiences and foods into my life everyday. And it worked! I am currently a World Record Holder in Masters swimming and my wonderful husband is a Boston Marathon qualifier. All my three children are successful athletes and I can truly say I don’t remember the last time I was sick. We love to travel and play in the mountains often AND I can even spend a weekend with cats!

*Xylitol (GI 13)

Though this sounds chemical this is an excellent low gi sweetener and can be substituted cup for cup with most recipes.  It can be purchased at most health food stores.  It is found in the fibres of many fruits and vegetables, including various berries, corn husks, oats and mushrooms.  It can be extracted from corn fibre, birch, raspberries and corn.  Xylitol is roughly as sweet as sucrose with only 2/3 the food energy.

A super food breakfast!

Once your pancakes are fully cooked add some extra berries on top. Top with greek yogurt for the extra protein hit in the morning. This recipe makes 3 to 4 pancakes.

Performance

We all want to be at our peak performance.

Are you an adult athlete or a corporate athlete? Do you want lots of energy at the end of the day to play with your children or grand children? Would you like more energy to study more?

Would you like more energy to train for a ski trip or hiking trip? Do you want to heal a chronic injury through vitamin therapy? Or recover from your training more quickly?

As a world class athlete in my 50’s, I have the experience to look at the entire picture of YOU! This includes: training, eating, supplementation, rest phases, work and family commitments, time and goals. I then make specific recommendations to help you improve performance.

What are your performance goals?

Prosperology

This is a new word for you so I will define it here in three ways.

Definition #1

The creation of health, happiness and prosperity in all areas of one’s life.

Question #1

You only have one life, so why not LIVE IT with 100% excellence?

Action #1

The art of facilitation of prosperology for others.

Think back in your life to a favourite coach, teacher, mentor or family member that inspired you to LEAP out of your current rut into real results!   Is YOUR current rut health, financial or something just plain boring?

Do You:

– love learning and personal growth?
– believe (be and live) in the concept of prosperology for your own life?
– want to be on a successful business team?

Are you:

– passionate about health and wellness?
– a self starter?
– self-motivated?
– AND LOVE RESULTS?

IF your answers are 100% YES, then consider me for your PROSPEROLOGY Guide.
