Real Kids Real Food Counselor Ages 13-18 In the Fall of 2020
I have learned so much by being a part of this ETT class, not only from the speakers, but from the stories and experiences shared by others in the class, in addition to learning a lot about myself. It helped me to discover how dedicated I can be towards improving my health and lifestyle, as well as taught me that I need to be patient. I’d say my biggest takeaway overall was that health is a lifelong journey, as it can take several years to transform physically, emotionally, and spiritually, but each step is so worth it.
I have been struggling with a few chronic illnesses and although they are not technically lethal, they are at times detrimental to my well being, which of course severely heightens my stress and in turn exacerbates my illnesses. Through this program, I have further realized the connections between mind, body, and spirit, learning about new ways to practice mindfulness and just how helpful that can be.
I have been angry and distrustful at doctors for only focusing on symptom management rather than holistic approaches and prevention, but this program has given me an abundance of information regarding traditional and ancient medicine and wisdom that I can finally trust and believe in. I thoroughly enjoyed learning about the power of raw foods and sprouts, functional medicine testing, meridians and chakras, and that I am my own doctor and master of my own destiny. It is never too early or too late to begin your healing journey.
I am certain that by applying what I have learned here and by being gentle and patient with myself, I can begin to heal my body entirely while protecting myself against additional issues in the future.
Thank you, ETT!
