“How I nearly died...
and then discovered the secret to
heal, rebuild and thrive!”
Everyday I stretch myself as an expert, an example to others, a supportive resource. I never stop to search for more, to get to know others and to serve in helping individuals be their healthiest selves all of the time.
It’s like an addiction, my dirty little secret. My passion grows even more each time I make a difference and my enthusiasm increases each time I am presented with a challenge. The most satisfying and rewarding feeling I get is when I see yet another person get that ‘AHA’ moment. Equally satisfying and rewarding feeling I get is when I see them apply it in their unique life and get the results they’ve only ever dreamed of.
I love my life and I am grateful every day. But I would be lying if I told you it’s all rosie and perfect. I too go through ups and downs like everyone else.
But I wouldn’t change it for a moment. I get to be me, I get to relate to you. I get inspired by working with my amazing clients, the driven individuals that are putting their health first and realising that with good health there is really no limit to their potential in all areas of life.
I live in an a demanding busy and ‘always happening’ city of London, I am able to wake up naturally at 7am with joy and get consistent energy and ambition all day until midnight, I love and look forward to my daily green juice, enjoy easy digestion, never feel like I have to diet, instead eat whatever I want (note: I learnt to want and crave Raw Food), get to STILL be ID’d at the supermarket even for Apple Cider Vinegar because of my youthful look and skin, have a clear focused mind to be more creative than I ever thought possible and most importantly be able to find all the time and energy to exercise, travel, invent new meals every night, hang out with my friends and go on dates with my handsome boyfriend.
“But it hasn’t always been this way”
In 1998 I was in a near fatal car accident, breaking my back and badly damaging all my internal organs. I had to undergo a serious surgery, was left with a plate and four screws holding my spine together, hideous scars and a full body brace for what was the longest and most dreadful four months of my life.
My insides were so badly bruised and damaged, that my body instantly rejected any food I swallowed, we were told they could never recover fully and given an option to have my pancreas cut out.
I was just a teenager and that was my first encounter of main stream medicine not offering any natural healing methods, but instead a quick fix. Such a vital and precious organ for digestion and overall health- can you imagine!?
My poor beautiful parents went through more stress than any child should ever have to witness. They did come to a decision to not operate unless it was absolutely vital...
“The search for holistic healing began”
The changes we started to implement were only small to begin with. After all even though we were living in New Zealand, we were a born and bred Russian family with strong values and deeply rooted beliefs about diet and nutrition. Like our ancestors, we too were born with a loaf of bread in one hand and salami in the other. Or ‘so to speak’.
We started to juice, eat more vegetables, stock up on fruit and only cook our own dinners so we knew what ingredients are used.
There was another problem...
We were proud of the meat we consumed and I was proud of the vows I’ve taken to never give it up. The only vegans I have ever known were also the most unhealthy scrawny pale kids at school. I never wanted to be like that.
It was many years until I learnt the difference between tofu and soy milk dependent vegans at my school and chlorophyll packed, living nutrients, enzyme rich and thriving vegans on a Raw Food diet.
Until then, we carried on searching.
Then another WAKE UP call.
I continued having problems and regular stomach pains in my late teenage years, so I visited a reflexology homeopath. I was told that my organs were so sensitive, that if I don’t make dramatic changes to my diet and stop consuming all sugar, I am only steps away from getting diabetes.
Diabetes? Doesn’t that mean I will never be able to eat sweets and chocolate and cheesecake and ice cream and everything I crave and think about every minute of everyday?? I was dependent on sugar, an addict.
“So I rebelled”
I began to eat what I wasn’t ‘allowed’ and binged on this ‘comforting food’ until comfort was the last thing I felt. My weight sky rocketed, my skin broke out, I became moody and impossible to be around and felt like a huge fat disappointment to myself, my family and everyone I knew.
My search for self improvement began.
I knew that my health was in my own hands. “Search and you shall find”. I spent all the savings from weekend work on programs of well known life coaches, such as Tony Robbins and began implementing every exercise and technique into daily practice.
Then everything changed. Looking back at it now, I was a wellness coach even before I knew it myself. My friends found remarkable inspiration in me and I became the guiding source for everyone with ‘issues’ searching for every way to serve and help others overcome them too.
“Through giving and helping others is how I healed myself”
But being healed is not nearly enough for living the ultimate energy lifestyle, I was certain there was more to it and the secret to vitality and longevity was out there.
Fast forward five years, it was my parents that discovered it first! They came across various testimonials from people on a Raw Food diet and were so intrigued, they went all the way to Arizona for the annual raw food festival to meet a fellow Russian and the mother of Green Smoothies, Victoria Boutenko herself.
It’s only been a two week trip but they returned as transformed people. Their energy has shifted, they both lost weight, their skin was glowing, they both looked younger and they were truly so radiant, it was beautiful.
It made so much sense to me... As soon as you apply heat to food, vitamins and minerals diminish, proteins and antioxidants get halved, enzymes vital for digestion die entirely. In turn- our bodies spend all their efforts on digesting the mineral depleted foods and leave us with hardly any energy for anything else.
I couldn’t understand why more people didn’t know about Raw Food, why there was such a lack of information out there. And in this I found my calling...
I began running workshops teaching others how to easily and effortlessly prepare delicious raw food snacks, smoothies, meals and super healthy deserts. I continued to invest in my own education and shared everything I learned with those attending my classes, talks, seminars and coaching programs.
My own stomach pains and headaches vanished for good. I also stopped getting the horrible bed driven flu’s at each change of season. My hair became stronger, eyes brighter and skin smoother.
After working with 100’s of clients and drawing from years of personal experience...
