I lost over 60 pounds, gained energy and healed my body of disease ...
and you can too!
Hello and a warm welcome to my site. My name is Katrina Love Senn.
12 years ago, I was overweight, tired and low in energy. I suffered with severe asthma, hypothyroidism and chronic fatigue syndrome. According to the medical professions these diseases were "incurable" but I did discover a way to heal my body and my life with no drugs, dieting or surgery.
After years of taking prescriptions, steroids and drugs, I wondered:
1. What was the root cause of my health challenges?
2. Was I ever going to be healthy, without prescription medication?
Incredibly I was given the chance to find out!
One day my body completely stopped. I had no energy. In fact I couldn't do anything. I was bed-ridden and quite literally couldn't get out of bed.
My Doctors undertook urgent and extensive tests but couldn't diagnose the problem. They did however offer me experimental medication.
I was at a cross roads.
I knew I had a decicion to make.
Should I follow my Doctors' recommendation and go down the traditional path of western medicine? Since they didn't know the problem, I wondered how they could treat it?
Or should I trust my own body? And was it possible my body was really trying to communicate a message to me? And could I trust myself to listen to my body's inner wisom and healing potential?
Against my Doctors best wishes, I choose the latter.
I decided to ditch all things confusing. This included food and food labels I couldn't pronounce, medication, medical research, scientific evidence, media recommendations, diets, calorie counting, portion control, doing exercise I hated and fat-free/low-fat/no-fat rules I had been trying to follow unsuccessfully for years to lose weight. And I threw away my scales.
I substituted unhealthy, processed toxic foods for healthy healing foods that my body could recognise and assimulate. I embraced holistic health and natural whole foods. I embraced simplicity; ancient and natural medical knowledge and the successful laws of nature taught so beautifully to anyone willing to listen and learn.
And here's the thing!
Very quickly I started to get well. My body came back into balance and healed naturally. A medical report confirmed what I already knew. I was in a state of excellent health; asthma-free with normal blood sugars and normal thyroid. I had lost over 60 pounds and have kept it off for almost 10 years now.
Truely effortless results with no medication, no side effects, no dieting, no food obsessing, no counting calories or fat percentages, no portion controls and no scales. Let me repeat that! No drugs. No surgery. No diets.
My ah-ha moment:
I learnt that my body was NOT my enemy, my body was actually my best friend.
I understood that:
- The excess fat had been protecting my delicate tissues and organs from all the sugars and acids in my diet.
- The adrenal exhaustion was my bodies urgent alarm to force me to stop, to be peaceful and to rest.
- The asthma attacks were my bodies screams for water, due to chronic dehydration.
- The chronic fatigue syndrome was a shout for less stress and more sleep, joy, creativity and quality nutrition.
When I provided my body with nutrition, it started to heal naturally.
After coaching hundreds of women on how to connect back to their vibrant trim selves, I have realised that inside each and every single one of us, we each have the power to transform our lives. When we are ready to heal all we need to do is let go of what we "think" we know and become open to "not knowing" and instead trusting our bodies. It truely is an opportunity to connect to our bodies inner knowing. It is possible to start cultivating trust in our bodies wisdom and ourselves and guide us effortlessly towards health and wellbeing. Sometimes this may feel scary as it is unknown. Doing this you are moving out of the known comfort zones (doing what you've always done, getting the results you always have) and into the unknown. The important thing to realise is that the only thing to fear is fear itself!
Another benefit I have gained is a deep understanding of what wealth is. Most people think that wealth is money. But real wealth has nothing to do with money. No amount of money can ever buy freedom, health, self-love, self confidence, inner peace and deep gratitude for everything that life is. Creating vibrant health gives you that and so much more!
Today I have discovered a beautiful freedom around food and life.
After embracing health and wellness, I feel more vibrant, alive and younger than ever before. Life unfolds magically around me, and everyday I have gratitude for everything that happens to me. In the past I may have judged some things good and some things bad. But I have learnt never to judge anything. Life gives us gifts in unexpected forms. Being sick, fat and having no evergy was my greatest challenge. But, now I understand that it was my greatest opportunity. Having lost over 60 pounds naturally, gained freedom from dis-ease, energy and vitality I feel more alive than ever before!
Today I spend my time teaching, inspiring and empowering women all over the world that it really is possible to heal the body naturally and kick the dieting habit for good. Vibrant health really is everyone's natural birthright.
I know with 100% confidence that anyone can transform their health and life, exactly like I have done.
WIth love and blessings.
