A Wakeup Call You Must Answer!
HIV is no joke. The meds can be tough on the body. Although they are saving our lives and allowing us to live as long as our HIV negative counterparts, they age us significantly. Our organs are always on super overdrive and continually inflamed. Being positive gives us a smaller window to make mistakes with our health. When living with HIV, we are at risk for all sorts of complications including cancers, heart and kidney disease, skin disorders, anxiety and depression. Not to mention, we have a significantly increased likelihood of having dementia and Alzheimer’s. We are only beginning to scratch the surface of what it means to age with HIV.
My intention is to be a coach for you as you navigate what comes next after the meds and the doctor appointments are all under control. I care about your health and can coach you on how to live your best life, being thankful – even grateful – that you have HIV……….

I am certainly less inflamed and living the life from the looks of the picture on the right! It is a process, I'm not going to lie, nor sugar coat things. It takes a village and I want to be a part of yours.

Top TEN interesting facts about HIV
YOUR GENETIC CODE CAN BE TWEAKED WITH NUTRITION
We are all shaped by our genetic heritage and upbringing, and if we do nothing significant to alter our exisiting wiring, we will continue to go through life with the same attitudes, perspectives, beliefs, and patterns of thinking we always had. For those of us who are HIV positive, we have the ability to dramatically change the structure of these genes to help us live longer and healthier lives, especially now that we are growing older and have the potential of living as long as our HIV negative brothers and sisters.
These new findings in neuroscience tell us we can override our own genetic code - that if we learn how to gain access to the power center of our brian, where those attitudes, beliefs, and established thought patterns are stored, we can actually rewrite our genetic code. In terms of being HIV positive, or having any other disease, we can change the make up of our body to help control the disease. We can prevent inflammation, brain fog, side effects, depression, anxiety, skin problems and even restless nights. Most importantly, as we age we can prevent cancers, diabetes, strokes, heart attacks and even dementia by taking specific measurable actions daily that will have a huge impact on the quality of our lives.
HIV CAN BE THE BEST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED TO YOU, IT WAS FOR ME.
Why? Think about it, you know your numbers, you see your doctor every four months......who else does this!? HIV saved my life and if you hire me we can talk about how it can save yours.
Think about this: your nutritional status is as important as knowing your HIV status. When your body is deprived of nutrients, viral infections can cause serious, even fatal diseases that don't occur when your nutrition is optimal. Immunity, when optimized, can ward off infection; and if infection does occur, it is more likely to have a harmless outcome.
Now, if you read between these lines, one could concur that if you weren't nutrient deficient, your body would be like superman and fight off any invasion such as HIV. This blew my mind away the first time I learned this, but this is not my point. What is important is that now that you are positive, or have cancer, or diabetes, it is integral that you do everything possible, use all the information out there, to live the highest nutritional excellence that you possibly can. This should be your mission in life if you so choose to accept it, and I am your HIVegan Guru in making that happen.
Now if you read even further into this, if you don't have a disease, then it is still in your best interest to live a life full of high nutrient excellence as to attempt to prevent anything from invading your body. Basically, we all want optimal performance, to live a long and healthy life and that is where I coach you and change your life forever.
This means that eating a micronutrient-rich-diet, with no deficiencies, may be the most critical factor in our ability, individually, to combat emerging infections; with the weapon of good nutrition, we enable our body to have control over viral replication. Doing this, along with taking your HIV medication, will result in the best quality of life you could ever have. A life that would be so much better than if you only took your meds, this I can promise, as I did it for myself.
