I’m Elaine Watkins, and I’m glad you’re here.
I’ve started this resource, with the encouragement of my family, to share the information we’ve been collecting over the last several years about living healthier lives along with the how’s and why’s of making different choices.
There’s been an undercurrent of minor health challenges across my adult life including PMS, heartburn, weight gain, and so on, and I basically bought the line that it all came with getting older. It wasn’t until I broke down and went to a doctor six years ago to do something about what I thought was menopause and learned that I had Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. The doctor took me off of gluten before I left, and I headed home to find out what Hashimoto’s actually was and start adjusting. Fast forward to today and you find me eating real food with as much color variety as I can get on a plate, cleaning in ways that won’t hurt people or pets, and dealing with stress in simple yet satisfying ways. I am a work in progress, but Wow do I feel So Much Better!
I love doing research and am continually amazed at how the body is so beautifully designed. I’m now studying for certification as a health coach and hope to bring new and expanded opportunities to you soon.
