Ann Arbor, MI (PRWEB) September 24, 2012
Women over 30 often notice a loss of energy, an increase in facial wrinkles, escalating weight, trouble sleeping through the night and lack of motivation, according to Registered Nurse and Certified Holistic Health Coach Vikki Narayan.
“Getting a handle on the body’s response to stress is key to anti-aging and better health. I’ve just expanded my business website services (http://www.MyWellnessNurse.com) because of the demand from people who are in need of an individual health plan that fits their unique lifestyle or medical condition,” said Narayan. “I can now help a larger number of clients to repair, restore, and rejuvenate their body and take back their health and rediscover their true youthful self,” she added.
About 9 out of 10 women over the age of 30 shy away from outdoor exercise due to low body- confidence and self-esteem, said Narayan. “A recent study surveyed 1,450 women and found that when feeling depressed, women were more likely to choose the following activities over exercising: eat comfort food (71 percent), listen to sad music (32 percent), spend time social networking (57 percent), go to bed (66 percent), or find a way to be alone (71 percent).”
“My approach to wellness is not to dwell on calories, carbs, fats and proteins. It’s not to create lists of restrictions or good and bad foods. Instead, I work with my clients to create a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and rewarding,” Narayan said. “Together we work to achieve optimal weight, reduce food cravings, increase sleep, and maximize energy. All of this develops a deeper understanding of good food and lifestyle choices that will improve energy, balance and health,” she added.
“First we look at each individual’s medical history and put together a way for them to heal holistically, get heart healthy, decrease inflammation in the body, and have endless beauty,” Narayan said.
“I show which healthy foods taste delicious and contribute toward being youthful and balanced. I practice a holistic approach to health and wellness, which means I look at how all areas of life are connected. Does stress at your job or in your relationship cause you to overeat? Does lack of sleep or low energy prevent you from exercising?” said Narayan.
“I tell clients that getting in shape after 30 is harder because their metabolism is not what it used to be. They can burn 200 less calories a day than they did when at 20. This means their energy may not be quite what it was, but that doesn’t have to be a huge roadblock. I suggest metabolism boosting foods like grapefruit, lean proteins, apples and green tea to give a little extra boost. It might not make up the entire difference, but it can help,” Narayan said. “Taking a holistic approach to looking good and feeling good is the best route, and how to do it is all outlined on my new website,” she added.
