Stress is involved in every common health complaint. Stress affects the adrenal glands which affect your hormones. Common symptoms such as low energy, foggy thinking, sleeplessness, weak muscles, weight gain, depression, mood swings, blood sugar issues, skin and hair problems, osteoporosis, PMS, premature aging, loss of libido and hot flashes can all be attributed to chronic stress, adrenal malfunction and hormone imbalance. Yet most doctors only treat the symptoms.
Anyone who is interested in feeling good and maximizing their energy and productivity, needs to be proactive in the pursuit of underlying causes of their symptoms to find real solutions. The “If Nothing is Wrong, Why Do I Feel So Bad?” seminar offers a valuable treasure chest of information and real solutions to common health issues. Lisa will also give attendees tips on ways you can enjoy the holiday season without packing on the pounds.
· No matter what you do, you can’t get a good night’s sleep
· You battle with weight gain, gas, bloating and other digestive symptoms
· Caffeine, sweet treats and junk food are staples to get you through the day
· You’ve talked with your doctor about your symptoms but your blood work comes back “normal”
· Seasonal allergies knock you out; frequent colds take longer to go away
· You have pain in your joints or just general aches
While symptoms are common, they are not normal. And they are not synonymous with “getting older”. Feeling your best can be easy when you identify the underlying cause at the root of your health complaints. This approach leads to long-term resolution of symptoms, not just temporary relief.
What I do:
As a functional health coach, I work with busy people to regain their energy and start to feel like themselves again. I seek out the underlying causes as to why you are not feeling your best. By employing detailed client intake, appropriate lab work and focusing on each individual’s unique biochemistry, I help my clients build their health from the ground up. My goal is to help educate and empower you to make the best decisions for your own health. Nobody else knows what it feels like to be in your particular body. I’m here to act as your guide, your wellness educator, and your advocate.
About Lisa Jacobsen:
I received my certifications as a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner FDN, Inc. in San Diego and as an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in New York City. But the most effective coach shows up to her clients having drawn from a diverse set of experiences ranging from a varied education and work experience to overcoming her own struggles and challenges. For fifteen years, I worked in a stressful environment in a Fortune 50 company. I traveled quite a bit, managed a large budget and staff and, for some time, had a long commute. While I absolutely loved my job, I took a lot of shortcuts to keep myself going each day and ultimately paid a price in terms of my health and weight. Indeed, there were times, when trying to figure out what to serve my family for dinner, I convinced myself that pepperoni pizza satisfied the four major food groups.
