The American lifestyle is busy- too busy. Not to mention demanding and completely unbalanced. We’re doing too many things and most of them very not well. It’s common for my clients to complain that their biggest problem is that they are always tired.
There are dozens of studies that show that 1 in 10 people actually suffer from chronic fatigue; a complicated disorder characterized by extreme fatigue that can’t be explained by any underlying medical condition. And guess what… women more likely to be affected than men!
Feeling fatigued all the time is exhausting. Literally! It feels like a weight has been harnessed around your waist that you carry around with you all day. Every day. It’s no wonder you look forward to the moment you can finally flop down on the couch to get some rest. Just getting through the day is a challenge.
If that wasn’t enough constant fatigue can leave you irritable, unfocused, inefficient and flat-out -cranky!! Not to mention the frustration that comes with missing out on life because you’re so pooped that you can’t make your body move for another second. I know! I’ve been there.
Quick sources of energy like caffeine and sugar are an easy fix, right? They provide the quick boost we’re looking for. But… that boost comes from a false source of energy so a crash is inevitable.
Here’s the problem, your daily consumption of caffeine and sugar is activating your immune system and creating chronic inflammation in your body. It’s stealing your energy, mental clarity, and quality of life.
Are you ready to get your mojo back? Eliminating caffeine and sugar is a great place to start. However, did you know that there are 10 ( probably more) additional ingredients that are found to cause chronic inflammation hiding in everyday foods? These can keep you from feeling and living your best life!

As Owner of NOW Health and Wellness, she specializes in food sensitivity testing and the elimination of inflammatory foods to improve mental and physical wellbeing. She believes we are what we eat, the food-body connection is powerful, and our daily food choices matter. Erica didn’t always love veggies, or know much about the connection between food and health. Until 2008, her diet consisted of high sugar, highly processed foods and tons of coffee. Throughout her life attempts at eating “healthy”, proved unsuccessful and following her first pregnancy, severe digestive symptoms began to interfere with daily life. Each day was a struggle to get out of bed and perform daily tasks. In pursuit of better health and a better quality of life, she eliminated gluten from her diet. The change in her digestive and overall health was apparent after just two weeks. She has never looked back and has been gluten-free since 2008. Finding her trigger food and understanding its impact on the body made a profound difference for her and her family. In 2014, she received her training as a Holistic Health Coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition studying over 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, and innovative coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts.
