Good News, my friend. You’ve come to the right place!
Hello, I am Carolyn Akens, and I am so glad you stopped by!
My objective is that you are in phenomenal health! Having the faith to believe the Word of God makes it all happen. Since you’ve landed on this page, I know that you’re ready for relief from the pain you’re dealing with constantly. Pain, that truly is the operative word whether it physical or heart pain. How do I know this…pain, inflammation, heart pain, and extra weight were part of my life until I found the key to make it all go away?
I was feeling on top of the world and them BAM…I had the biggest pain I had ever felt!
I was bringing in groceries and noticed a sharp pain in my right wrist and it got worse. I thought it was due to stress because in one year...
- I suffered the loss of a very dear friend to breast cancer
- My daughter was diagnosed with breast cancer (my daughter is now cancer-free)
- My nephew passed
“Nothing is Wrong With You!” Doctors, x-rays, and money flying out the door, doctors were telling me nothing was wrong with my wrist that it was the beginning stages of arthritis. That wasn't acceptable and I didn't receive that diagnosis!
Sometime we have to look within to know the root cause and that’s exactly what I did. I sat down and took the time to really access what was going on with me:
- The food I had been eating
- Lack of exercise
- Caring for family members
- Caring for friends
- Tending to my clients
I am not perfect. I made some bad food choices during a time of deep emotional stress. This lead to:
- Leaky gut
- Food sensitivities
- Sleep deprivation
- Low energy levels
- Mood swings
What I realized was that I had to know “my why” for the weight gain and it was very painful, but I pushed through and dealt with the childhood pain that had held me hostage for years, and the broken marriage that almost took my life more than once. I knew changes had to be implemented to execute successful natural weight loss and keep it off because brokenness is not my heritage! I am no different than you and if I can do it, so can you. I will be with you every step of the way!
My younger brother succumbed to complications of morbid obesity when he was only 45, leaving a wife, three children and siblings behind. My brother had many health problems attributed to morbid obesity. I knew that obesity wasn’t hereditary; it is what we put in our mouths that makes the difference.
Clean eating allows you to eat food that your body will love and will fight inflammation, which causes so much unrest in your body. If you feel bound in the throngs of leaky gut, heart pain, inflammation, overweight or obesity, I will educate you so you will be able to change your habits and be free just like me!
I will coach you on how to eat whole foods for your healthy transformation while supporting you with your goals. I teach you how to shift your mindset about food to coincide with your spirit, soul and body. My desire is to: Bring You Back to Health, One Bite at a Time!™
Are your exercising? I loved walking, but never did any strength training. Now, I am doing lots of strength training and loving it!! I have reached a milestone in my age and I am physically fit with lots of energy! All that transformation took place many years ago and I've kept it off. Would you like to know exactly what I'm doing? Send me an email, I am excited to share the details with you!
Whether it's leaky gut, heart pain, inflammation, overweight or obesity; together we will be a FORCEFUL TEAM because I want you healthy in every area of your life!
