Athena has helped transform us - Mind, Body and Soul! My family is stronger, healthier and more empowered than ever before!
About 2 months ago my husband and I (with the direction of Madame Athena) decided to change our eating habits. The initial prompt for this was to help with my Vitiligo. My husband and I also desired and tried to correct our eating habits for years, but did not have the proper direction. My husband was addicted to sugar, and i just had a terrible diet. One of a working busy mother of two with no time (or so i thought) to truly nurture myself with healthy foods. Once we enlisted Madame Athena's help we realized that with our best efforts we would not have been able to accomplish what we did without Madame Athena's wealth of knowledge and direction.
We started this program with the motivation and drive to succeed. Overall it was a 5 week program. We kicked it off with Week One which was The Cleanse. Madame Athena provided a guide on how to execute this cleanse safely and properly. She also provided recipes for smoothies, juices, salad dressings, etc to get us through the first week of cleansing. These recipes were delicious! Following this were the next four weeks of the "diet change" or as i like to call it ,"lifestyle change". We were put on an eating regimen that included no dairy, no refined sugar, no gluten and no processed foods. We were also given an outline of how to eat, many wonderful recipes, extensive information on the science of food pairing, food nutrition facts, and meditation routines. The works! She provided all the tools we needed to plan and succeed.
This process changed my family's life! We haven't been the same since.
Throughout the process my husband and I felt so empowered! It made us happier and closer as a couple, b/c we went through the challenge together. Individually, my husband lost about 20lbs, has increased energy and more discipline! He is elated at how he was able to transform himself by simply streamlining his diet to the basics, which by the way is delicious!!! Its not about calorie deficit, but more about replacing bad fats with good ones and eating highly nutritious foods. We didn't realize how the normal every day diet was filled with harmful ingredients, chemicals, additives and preservatives that lead to low quality health and possibly disease. As for me, I also lost weight, am a happier more confident person and feel like i am doing the right thing for myself and my family! As for my Vitiligo - I have already noticed some re-pigmentation on certain areas of my skin. While the amounts are small, i understand that this is a gradual process which happens over time. Before working with Athena, my vitiligo was only getting worse. I also have a 6 year old son that i believe was addicted to sugar. As we became enlightened we passed these things down to our children. We started by swapping out sugary / preservative filled cereals like Frosted Flakes and Honey Nut Cheerios to unsweetened natural cereals and allowing my son to be a "chef" by drizzling raw honey over his cereal in the morning. He loves it and doesn't even think about the other cereals anymore. My son jumped on board with no problems at all. He now drinks maybe 2 servings of juice a day (if that). In the past he would drink 2 servings of water a day and the rest would be juice. I'm so happy that as a family we have changed our lifestyle. I'm so proud of us and we could NOT have done this without Athena! She's helped transform us - Mind, Body and Soul! My family is stronger, healthier and more empowered than ever before! What a great feeling! Thanks so much Madame Athena!!!
