My name is LaShanda and I am a Holistic Health Practitioner Certified in Detoxification, Corporate Wellness Instructor, and Raw Food Chef. I'm currently available for consultations via phone and Skype.
I have spent the past 5 years doing independent research on the subjects of health and spirituality, working with clients, and using the wisdom I've gathered to educate and guide them on their detoxification and healing journeys. (You can read more about my personal healing journey here.) I've had a daily spiritual practice for the past 7 years that combines breathwork and meditation and my spiritual practice helps me stay balanced, as well as brings a heightened level of clarity, awareness, and compassion to my client work.
A lot of people come to me tired of fad diets and overwhelmed with trying to sift through the latest trends and studies around health and nutrition. They don't want to spend the rest of their life in chronic pain or relying on supplements and pharmaceutical drugs to simply function. They feel disconnected from their food and body. They feel very dis-empowered when it comes to their health, over well-being, and tapping into their body's natural ability to heal itself. They're confused. They want wisdom. They want change. They want to choose a different path.
My passion is reintroducing people to health, vitality, and purpose. So getting the body healthy again is only the first step.
What excites me is when people regain the energy to start checking things off their "bucket list" and spending quality time with the people they love....
What inspires me is seeing people getting excited about life again and reconnecting with their purpose for being on the planet...
What brings me joy is watching the world benefit from people who have come alive again and begin to start sharing their unique gifts and talents with others...
Detoxification is the road to "Wellville" for those willing to travel, but it's also a platform for reconnecting with your true Self and the things that make you feel joy, love, inspiration, and excitement.
