Interview with Vicki

 

http://liveyourhealthylife.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/Vicki-Heise-Headshot-2-8-12.jpgQ: Why did you become a Health Counselor?
In late 2005 after 35 years of yo-yo dieting, I was anxious, bingeing on chocolate just to get through each day, grossly overweight, and if I’m honest – obese. I would wake up each morning and wonder, have I abused myself beyond repair? Is this the day my body gives up on me? Why was I doing this to myself?

I was literally scared to death, and had to admit to myself that I was committing suicide with food.

I asked for help, was diagnosed with eating and anxiety disorders and realized I was a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP). I was adamant about not using drugs, trusting my body would know what was best for me. I found the tools that worked, the personal solution that was right for me.

As I got better I just knew I wasn’t the only one struggling with weight and body image, foods cravings, mood swings, anxiety, feeling overwhelmed, and missing out on things because of total exhaustion.

I made a commitment to dedicate myself to helping other women love themselves enough to be able to live the healthy life of their dreams.

Q: So how did you become certified?
I studied nutrition in school and then on my own for years interested in why what worked for one person might hurt another. I was always researching the latest health findings. It was important to me to find training that also believed that health and wellbeing meant something different to each individual. And that each person should be treated as a whole.

I received my training at and am certified as a Health Counselor by the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in partnership with Teachers College Columbia University in New York City, and certified as a Holistic Health Practitioner by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners.

My training included Eastern and Western nutrition, over 100 dietary theories, contemporary health studies, health counseling and guest teachers that have pioneered new ideas in personal growth and nutrition including Andrew Weil MD, Deepak Chopra MD, Neal Barnard MD, Mehmet Oz MD, Barry Sears PhD and others.

Q: How are you different from a nutritionist or dietician?
Unlike nutritionists and dieticians that use the FDA pyramid, I use many dietary theories to help my clients. I also include all aspects of their lives as they are working through their personalized program. This allows for life long changes to be more easily maintained because the client is treated as a whole person and deals with the many factors affecting their health.

Q: Why did you create The 7 Key Steps Every Women Needs To Unlock Her Healthier, Happier Life™ program?
For women to get the best results and benefits it is important to provide them with all the tools they need to accomplish their goals. I realized that there were specific steps that when followed, provided amazing results. And so The 7 Key Steps Every Woman Needs to Unlock Her Healthier, Happier Life™ program was created.

Q: What are keys of the program?
1. Make Time Just For You
2. Feed Your Body
3. Feed Your Soul
4. Love Yourself
5. Love Moving
6. Keep Dreaming
7. Create Your Support Circle

Q: What results can I expect from this program?
You will discover how:
1. to make yourself a priority without feeling guilty about it
2. to “hear” what your body is telling you
3. to recognize how food affects your mood and how to use it to your advantage
4. to get helpings of the non-food things that also “feed” you
5. to take extremely good care of your WHOLE self

You’ll end up with your personal recipe of what works best for you…
even in busy, stressful times

Q: Who will most likely benefit from this program?
You will benefit if you are:
1. motivated and ready to take really good care of yourself
2. open to hearing new ideas and experimenting to see what works for you
3. willing to consider how you sabotage yourself and get in your own way
4. excited about getting started on living your healthy life

Q: Who is NOT likely to benefit from this program?

This program is not for you if you are:
1. not ready to devote time for yourself
2. not ready to deal with how you treat yourself
3. looking for lots of rules and being told what to do
4. not ready to try new ideas
5. looking for a quick fix

Q: Why is the one on one program six months?

I have found that for clients to make lasting changes, it takes time to build a strong foundation that will provide true support. It’s like sitting in a chair with only one leg – all four are needed and that requires more time to build.

This is truly a commitment to make yourself a priority and working to make changes. There will be challenges along the way, but I am here to support you. By being honest with yourself and me, we will figure out what is working for you and try new ideas when things aren’t. This is all part of the personalization of your program.

By following the program for a minimum of 6 months you will experience amazing changes in you and your life.
