Dear Health Seeker,
I am delighted to be your guide in your journey to a healthier you. My journey to health and nutrition started when my dad was diagnosed with high blood pressure, also known as the silent killer. I was reading and researching everything I could in hopes of finding a solution for his failing health.
My eyes were open when I traveled to Europe in the summer of 2006 where I got to experience health in a different way. I was immersed in a new culture where healthy eating was abundant.
You see, my father was diagnosed with congestive heart failure from years of poorly controlled high blood pressure. He had shortness of breath most time and fatigued really easily. Going from one doctor to another, he had lost hope; he had lost his "joy for living."
It was the S.A.D American diet and sedentary lifestyle that didn't serve him. I wish I knew what I know now. Good health is possible if you can keep it. I went into functional nutrition to help my dad recover from his disease, but unfortunately, it was too late.
With the experience and knowledge I have accumulated over the years, I want to help those that are struggling with heart disease, diabetes, and other health conditions to unleash their body's own healing potential through dietary and lifestyle changes.
My belief is that “Healthy eating does not have to be complicated.” With that, I hope to empower you to reach for lifelong energy, nutrition, and health.
With love and gratitude,
Phara J Taylor, MS RD
