So Who Am I?

My name is Kendra Perry – I am 28 years old and I live in Nelson, British Columbia, although I grew up in Dunrobin, Ontario. Nelson is a beautiful town located in the heart of the Kootenays. I love to be in the mountains whenever possible. I am usually out skiing, rock climbing, biking, canoeing or hiking. I am incredibly lucky to have all this in my backyard!

   

My Story

I have always been interested in health and diet. My current diet has evolved over 8 years and will continue to evolve as my search for optimal health continues. About 5 years ago, I tooka  3 month coutse of antibiotics follwed by toxic brand of birth control pill that resulted in me getting a handful of uncomfortable symptoms including, acne, dry and pale skin, water retention and emotional distress. Although the last 3 symptoms were annoying, the acne is what bothered me the most. I lost my self esteem and delved into reading about every possible cure imaginable. Acne aside, what bothered me the most was the fact I didn’t think I looked healthy. I had always taken such pride in nutrition and eating whole foods, and when I saw myself in the mirror, I did not see a healthy girl.

The journey to cure my acne, lead me to learn not only about acne, but the importance of personal health and the corrupted state of our current healthcare system. I have learned I am passionate about holistic health and I truely believe all people can benefit from the adoption of not only a healthy diet but a low stress and postivie approach to everday life.

Why Should You Read My Blog?

Recently I started to notice that a lot of my friends are sick. Autoimmune disease, cancer, and tumors seemed to be plagueing the lives of many of them. It didn’t make sense to me. Women and men in their 20′s are in their prime, shouldn’t their health be in prime condition as well? This intensified my interest in health and diet. I believe the human immune system is sophisticated and amazing and given the right tools can properly correct most imbalances in the body. We have all the tools, we just need to learn how to use them.

This blog is about promoting the idea that good eating and mental and emotional health can help you lead a CrazyHealthyHappy and long life. We should feel empowered to take health into our own hands, let go of fear of disease and truely enjoy everything that life has to offer.

Over the past few years I have watched my friends and family get sicker, and mainstream nutritional information get more and more convoluted. It’s time for a change. With disease running rampid in modern society, it is now more important than ever to start taking an interest in your health. I hope to inspire people to make positive to changes to their lifestyle and inspire others to do the same. Remember, we already have the tools!

So please tune in, add your comments and share your information! The sharing of information is a powderful tool so let’s use it to help each other achieve crazy, happy, beautiful health.
