Prevana comes from the heart of my inspiration. It is a blend of Prevention and Havana. When I was in my early 20's I traveled to Havana, Cuba to study their public health system. I was a girl on a mission. I wanted to know how a country with such limitations in technology and medications, was doing a lot with a little. What I found is Cuba focuses highly on education and through that they teach their people about prevention.
They empower the people to rejuvenate with de-stressing practices such as Tai-Chi in the park and massages and to nourish their bodies by growing their own foods with urban farms and eating more whole foods. These practices of healthy living is how Cuba is improving the health of their people and decreasing the development of preventable disease.
Havana deeply inspired and motivated me to come back to the states with a mission to improve my own lifestyle (naturally) and to begin my career in the field of prevention and wellness. Using a combination of bodywork, nutrition coaching and whole foods education, I now enjoy Inspiring Others To Live A Healthy Lifestyle! Why? Because I know the power of natural health care and truly enjoy helping others discover how to transform their well-being through sustainable steps, which lead to health and vitality.
I do what I do because of my own healing journey. Born with pneumonia and with a weak immune system, I struggled with my health for a long time. My health care consisted of taking antibiotics and going to the doctors when I was sick and in between illnesses I did not focus on my health. Breaking my leg 13 years ago was a turning point for my personal care. I taught myself to walk again using Tai Chi, explored the healing touch of massage and completely changed my dietary preferences. From there on, I embraced stress management in the form of massage and exercise and began to explore which foods fueled and gave me strength. Small changes I made began to transform my life. I got sick less and had more energy. I have truly healed myself with natural self care and now am on a mission to help others do the same.
