small shifts, big change
I LOVED the course so much. It was seriously the highlight of my week and I just loved having something to look forward to on Monday nights :)
Before the course, I realized some of my daily habits weren't great for my well-being. I felt as though I walked away from the lessons with tools to be more intentional in the decisions I make.
Simple tricks like slowing down when I am eating, or incorporating more foods that are best for my type have helped me feel more connected to my body and health. The course is such a wonderful holistic approach to a healthier lifestyle that is easy to understand and even easier to adapt.
I was experiencing fiery/hot indigestion and an uncomfortable pain in my stomach that persisted for months. It made me feel extra emotional and sensitive, due to the constant discomfort. I also felt uncomfortable during intimacy with my partner, which made me feel really sad.
Hillary helped me understand what was going on, and helped me with lifestyle shifts, habit changes, nutrition, eating tips, and the right spices to use. After working with her, I no longer have that hot indigestion. I'm feeling more emotionally stable now that it's gone, and I'm able to make more informed decisions and clear choices with foods that are right for me.
I have more energy than I've had in a long time, and I can connect more joyfully and intimately with my partner now that the discomfort and agitation is gone.
Before our paths crossed in 2013, I knew nothing of Ayurveda and was trying to navigate my own personal healing with Lyme Disease. Hillary was an instrumental system of support and wisdom for me. Over the course of a year and a half, I saw dramatic results and improvements in my health.
Fast forward 2 years later and I feel better than I have in years. What Ayurveda has taught me is a series of tools creating balance in my life and ultimately creating an environment where my body can heal itself and regain its vitality. If you're thinking about pursuing Ayurveda and are looking for a guide, I couldn't recommend anyone better than Hillary. She brings a deep passion and commitment to those she works with and is simply an incredible wealth of wisdom and support.
Going to Hillary was one of my favorite decisions I've made for myself. It felt so clear from the beginning how much she cared about my body and mind, as well as helping me make healthy and sustainable life adjustments. Her attention to detail made me feel so seen, and in the vulnerable moments of sharing information about myself, she met me with an open and affirming attitude. I love that she invests herself in her patients and is dedicated to learning more and more about Ayurveda every day.
Hillary started me on an Ayurvedic program by first determining my Dosha and then working from there. We adjusted my diet and started on a regime of yoga and lifestyle changes. I gained much insight into myself, how to rethink my being, and was able to progress to a deeper state of health. I am doing well now and feeling much better than I did before I started my Ayurvedic programs. Hillary was extremely instrumental in getting me on the path to good health and well being.
I worked closely with Hillary during our tenure at the California College of Ayurveda together.
Hillary is a dedicated hard worker who sees projects through. She is intelligent, creative, and respectful. She listens well and knows how to motivate and inspire those around her into greater health and wellbeing.
