Hey fellow health fam! Thanks for stopping by Yours Naturely! I’m Elissa and I’m a certified integrative health and wellness coach living in Singapore. I offer health coaching services both virtually and locally.
WHAT IS A HEALTH COACH?
I’m not a nutritionist nor am I a doctor. Not even close. I’m simply a mentor, a listening ear, a friend to talk to, guiding you in achieving your health and wellness goals, whatever it may be.
I practice an integrative approach to health and wellness, which means I look at all aspects of our lives. From what we eat to our relationships, from our daily grinds to our spirituality.
Is your stress causing your indigestion? Are you gaining weight from lack of sleep?
My approach is not simply tackling nutrition, weight and calories as I strongly believe everything in our lives are interconnected. Instead, I work with my clients to dissect their issues in all facets of their lives and create good long-lasting habits in order to thrive and achieve their best, healthiest, happiest selves.
SOME CONCEPTS WE’LL TALK ABOUT
PRIMARY FOOD™: Nutrition is not a primary food. In fact our primary food relies on everything else that contributes to our sense of fulfillments in life. From careers, families, relationships, spirituality and everything else in-between, the excitement and rapture of daily life can feed us more completely than any food.
BIO-INDIVIDUALITY™: We’ll talk about the concept of bio-individuality in which one man’s fuel is another man’s poison. What may work for you may not work for others and that’s why fad diets can crash and burn. We’ll work together based on your unique needs, lifestyle and even ancestral background.
CROWDING OUT™: Sometimes it’s not about going cold turkey or taking away the bad habits all at once. Crowding out works in the way that we’ll add in the good and let the bad organically and naturally dissipate from your life.
WHAT I LOVE
Having a media and advertising background, I’ve recently caught on the healthy living bug and enjoying the nooks and crannies I’m discovering in my own wellness journey.
Apart from blogging, I am usually cooking or baking up a storm in my kitchen, trying out some new interesting workout, flying at the aerial studio, shopping for new kitchenware or having tv show marathons. I’m a tea addict, essential oil lover, a foodie, a wanderluster, a health nut who thinks that life is too short to not live holistically healthy but still have the spirit to indulge on pastry. From time to time of course 😉
YOURS NATURELY PHILOSOPHY
It isn’t a fad nor should it be a trend but it can be life changing. One’s health should never be taken lightly and I understand how hard it can be to do so. It’s so easy to misinterpret health with 2-hour long runs and ridiculous diet fads, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.
Having struggled from numerous illnesses, allergies and weight issues, I’ve come to finally grasp a sense of control over my body. Throughout the past year, I’ve dedicated myself to learn more about my body and how I can nourish it to the best of my abilities. That’s where Yours Naturely comes in. This website is here to simply share my journey and what my experience has been like so far and I hope in time you can too!
It isn’t a 30-day or 100-day challenge. Clean and natural living is a lifestyle, an everyday path. From whole foods to natural remedies, from self-discoveries to self-love, Yours Naturely is a recap of my journey in searching to a better, happier and healthier mind, body and spirit. I hope that somewhere along these words and pages, I can inspire you to embark on your own wellness journey.
REMEMBER, IT’S ALWAYS IMPOSSIBLE UNTIL DONE, SO FIND YOUR HEALTHY!
Much luck and love,
