My name is Allison Slade. My passion for holistic heath, mind/body connection, nutrition, and coaching began almost 25 years ago. I've accomplished formal education in massage therapy, energy work, nutrition therapy, iridology, touch therapy, coaching, and naturopathy.
I founded Nourishing Within in 2001 with this understanding...
Nourishment -- defined as the "foundation of vitality" or "living fully and at your best."
Nourishment isn't only derived from food. Other contributors include lifestyle practices,
relationships, our profession, the choices we make, finances, what we believe, how
we think and feel about ourselves, others, and the world. These combined help create
and sustain our health, happiness, balance and vitality.
This understanding has been proven to be true over and over throughout my career, leading me to know that we are powerful, creative, energetic beings. It's essential we recognize this to live our best life. Beyond recognizing this, we must embody this truth so that we become creators (vs. bystanders). This ensures that what's happening around us doesn't "blow us around like a leaf", better yet, we're able to "stand tall and hearty like a tree" and weather the storm(s). Having these truths be our foundation allows us to make healthier choices, keep healthy boundaries, do and be our best, and most importantly, have fun!
At times, and for many reasons, we lose sight of these truths. Our foundations get shook, or cracked, or maybe it's eluded you altogether. If you are experiencing imbalances, struggling and unhappy, then your foundation needs attention. Maybe you're unable to achieve a long-time goal, overcome a health issue or trauma, or just want more joy. Through coaching, we'll explore what is holding you back or getting in your way.
I have experienced personally (and many, many times professionally) that the body can heal itself IF we connect and listen, identify the block(s) or imbalance(s), and restore healthy energy flow. Life becomes FUN and EXCITING when we become CREATORS. If you are WILLING, this journey can be life altering and result in a joyous, conscious, loving relationship with self, others, and life.
