    Nourish Your Chakras ~ 8-week transformational healing program with Aglaée

    Starting the week of Sept 18, 2017!!!

    Do you feel tired and wired? 
    How would grounded and nourished feel instead?

    What would that mean for you in YOUR life?

    The Nourish Your Chakras Program is a transformational healing journey to help you go from feeling tired and wired to feeling grounded and nourished. This chakra-based program is designed to heal your body from the inside out in a holistic way that goes beyond all the other "holistic" programs you've ever see out there!

    Here's what Nourish Your Chakras will do for you: 

    • Increase and stabilize your ENERGY levels
    • Improve your DIGESTION and say goodbye to BLOATING
    • Clear your SKIN and love looking at your own reflection in the mirror
    • Get rid of BRAIN FOG, THINK clearly, and boost your MEMORY
    • Lower systemic INFLAMMATION and dissolve CHRONIC DISEASES before they show up 
    • Feel better in your own skin than you ever have and FEEL LIKE YOURSELF AGAIN!

    During those 8 weeks together, you'll feel better than you have in a long time and you'll become equipped with your own personalized tools to keep healing your body and your life from the inside out whenever you need to to nourish your chakras.

    Do I need to be familiar with the chakra system?

    Short answer: NOT AT ALL! 🙂

    If you aren't familiar with it, you might be wondering what the chakra system is exactly...?

    The chakra system is an energetic way to look at how the physical (BODY), emotional (HEART), mental (MIND), and spiritual (SOUL) parts of your self all integrate together. This system is well established and it is estimated that it has been around for more than five thousand years (that's just 4,900 years more than "modern" medicine, haha! 🙂 ). 

    The chakra system is not "only" an esoteric or New Age thing!

    By looking at it from a Western medicine perspective, you can see that each of them is connected to a specific nerve plexus (nerve connected your spine) and endocrine organ(s) (hormone-producing organs) of the body! 

    How cool is that?
    Another example of how East meets West at its best and
    how ancient wisdom meets modern science.

    We can use it for REAL, measurable SHIFTS HEALING
    in your physical body & life.

    Each of our 7 chakras is located along the spine and is associated with different organs, body systems, aspects of your life, limiting beliefs, and stuck stress. By using this structure, we can give each of your chakra, and therefore your whole body, a COMPLETE TUNE-UP. We can address current issues and prevent new ones before they even manifest in your body.

    Now, THAT's HOLISTIC in a way you've never experienced it!

    The chart below can give you an idea of the different issues associated with each chakra:

    • 1st chakra = ROOT chakra (red and located at the base of your spine)
    • 2nd chakra = SACRAL chakra (orange and located at the level of your womb/ right below your belly button)
    • 3rd chakra = PLEXUS chakra (yellow and located at the level of your solar plexus)
    • 4th chakra =  HEART chakra (green and located at the level of your heart)
    • 5th chakra = THROAT chakra (blue and located at the level of your throat)
    • 6th chakra = THIRD EYE chakra (indigo and located between your eyes)
    • 7th chakra = CROWN chakra (purple or white and located at the crown of your head)


    What does "Nourish Your Chakras" include?

    • Weekly TRANSFORMATIONAL classes focused on each chakra (attend live or watch the replay)
      • Classes are both INFORMATIVE + PRACTICAL... because you don't need that more information,
        what you need is TRANSFORMATION... don't you agree?

      • Quick & easy practices to align your chakras and get rid of your blocks

    What's the plan?

    Each week, we'll focus on one specific chakra at all different levels (~body~mind~heart~soul~).

    There will be a specific nutrition and health focus (some more general and some more tailored to your unique biology and life), a short but mighty healing ritual, a few extra practices of the week (quick & easy because this program is designed to NOT bring any extra stress to your life), and a energy healing session (which you do not have to be present for, so nothing to add to your calendar here! 🙂 ). 

    The teaching transmission will be done via a live class (recordings are always available if you miss it or want to re-watch) at the beginning of the week and will be followed by an catalyst circle (online group call) later in the week where each and every woman will be given individual attention from Aglaée (different times will be offered so that everyone can make it / also recorded just in case!).

    Here's the overview of each week of the transformational + healing Nourish Your Chakras Program.

    • Week #1 = root chakra (bone health, colon, immune system, anxiety...)
    • Week #2 = sacral chakra (adrenal glands, female hormones, creativity, addictions...)
    • Week #3 = plexus chakra (stomach, pancreas, liver, self-confidence, doing too much vs procrastination...)
    • Week #4 =  heart chakra (heart, lungs, forgiveness, grief, compassion for others and yourself...)
    • Week #5 = throat chakra (thyroid, neck, jaws, expressing yourself authentically...)
    • Week #6  = third eye chakra (pituitary gland, intuition, balance between the left and the right brain...)
    • Week #7 = crown chakra (pineal gland, sleep, clear thinking, memory, trust, connection...)
    • Week #8! = Complete integration & alignment of all of your 7 physical chakras 🙂

    ~ Nourish Your Roots ~ [6-week LIVE group program] ~ starting July 17!

    Are you spinning your wheels when trying to eat and live more healthfully?

    Do you feel overwhelmed and don't know where to get started
    Or maybe you try to do everything at once and end up giving up?

    Over the 11+ years of experience I have working with clients as a
    registered dietitian, nutritionist, and coach, I learned 2 things:

    1) the most powerful habits are the ones we can stick to, AND
    2) the best results come from nourishing our 4 roots: body + mind + heart + soul.

    This is exactly what the Nourish Your Roots Program will help you do. Instead of falling prey to the shiny object syndrome and getting distracted by too much information, new gadgets, and the supplement du jour (or getting distracted by life in general taking the focus away from your health and yourself), this 6-week program will provide a safe container for you to nourish and grow your roots.

    Think of your health like a garden.

    Most people throw many seeds in the garden but where they fail is that they forget to truly nurture and nourish the seeds that can produce those very strong roots and healthy flowers and trees that you want to feel your best.

    Are you ready to truly cultivate your health
    by nourishing your roots?

    Let's spend the next 6 weeks together so I can teach you
    and guide you to take better care of your health garden?

     

    What will I learn with the "Nourish Your Roots" program?

    It's hard to put into words the transformation that happens with this program, but here's an idea of what you will walk away with! 🙂

    At the end of the 6 weeks, you will:

    • have a SOLID foundation of healthy habits that nourish your body, mind, heart, and soul
    • reconnect with the inner wisdom of your own body to find the best way to eat for you
    • know how to eat in a non-restrictive way to stabilize your blood sugars and keep your energy levels high throughout the day while minimizing inflammation and promoting healing
    • build your own personalized self-care plan that will prevent self-sabotage from hindering your progress on your healing journey in the future 
    • feel more empowered with your thoughts, inspired with your actions, and aligned with your life instead of having the negative self-talk and self-sabotaging behaviors on auto-pilot 
    • be living a life that is more like YOU and finally allowing your full potential to shine brightly!

    What does the "Nourish Your Roots" program include?

    • Weekly class at the beginning of each week (attend live or watch the recording)
      • see the outline of the weeks below
    • Weekly gardening mission to nourish and grow your roots!
      • information is one thing but action is required for transformation!
    • Weekly group call (also recorded) towards the end of the week to share your focus
      of the week, challenges, and successes (days TBD depending on participants' availability) 
    • accountability and support make all the difference to turn goals into reality!
    • Duration: 6 weeks (July 17 - August 26, 2017)
    • This is a LIVE program but recordings are also provided if you miss any class/call! 🙂
    • Small group of 8-12 people with INDIVIDUAL attention!

    Bonus!

    • Access to AJ (that's me!) and at least 15 minutes a week of individual attention
      through the community and the weekly group calls 🙂
    • Access to a community to ask your questions (to the group and AJ),
      get support, and inspiration 
    • Weekly prizes (1:1 sessions with AJ, energy drawings, and other awesome gifts!)
      for those achieving their weekly gardening mission!

    What is the plan?

    • Week #1: BODY 
      • Focus on food, nutrients, and nutrition
    • Week #2: BODY
      • Focus on other health habits that nourish the body (i.e. sleep and movement)
    • Week #3: MIND
      • Focus on quieting the survival brain and negative self-talk to start rewiring the brain
    • Week #4: HEART
      • Focus on nourishing the heart and using our emotions as messengers to guide us
    • Week #5: SOUL
      • Focus on nourishing the joy and integrating all the different layers (BODY+MIND+HEART)

      • Focus on reflecting, assessing, celebrating, and getting ready for the next steps!

    My mind was more exhausting than the lack of sleep.

    I was so tired.

    I hadn’t even been awake for 3 minutes and all I wanted to do is go back to sleep and find the “skip” or “fast forward” buttons for the day.

    But I didn’t have a choice. No matter how tired I was, I had to start my day. I had to be a grown-up. I had to adult. Days transformed into weeks and months… (read more below)

    I was a young mom with an 18-month-old toddler who hadn’t slept through the night since he was born. In fact, he would usually wake up at least 4-6 times, needing help to go back to sleep, EVERY SINGLE NIGHT. Sometimes even up to 10 times a night.

    Sleeping only 2-3 hours at a time, at the most, when you are SO tired is like torture.

    Especially when there are absolutely NO SIGNS that this is going to get better any time soon.

    I read ALL the books, listened to ALL the podcasts, and sought ALL the advice I could get my hands on.

    Only to get MORE of the SAME.

    I was a mixture of exhausted, discouraged, hopeless, helpless, resigned at times, irritable, resentful, bitter, and desperate….

    My fatigue was not only physical, but also mental and emotional.

    >>>>>>>> The worse factor was NOT my BABY, it was the VICTIM MENTALITY. <<<<<<<<

    Now over a year later, NOTHING HAS CHANGED with my son sleep-wise. He still wakes up an average of 4-6 times a night, needing my help.

    ★★★ But my ENERGY LEVELS have gone from 1/10 to 7/10. ★★★

    And I have NOT CHANGED anything with my FOOD, overall DIET, or BEDTIME. I have NOT ADDED a single SUPPLEMENT.

    ★★★ The ONE & ONLY THING I did was stepping out of the victim mentality. ★★★

    Every day, I would wake up feeling miserable. I would count the number of times he woke me up and tell myself “I can’t believe he woke me up 7 times last night”. I would tell myself “I’m so tired, I don’t know how I’m going to make it through the day”. I would tell myself “Why is this happening to me? What am I doing wrong? What is wrong with this kid?”

    I almost had a VICTIM MENTALITY stamp on my forehead because that’s how I operated.

    I decided that even though I had no power over my son’s sleep, I had the POWER to CHANGE my MIND and my THOUGHTS.

    ★★★ I decided to no longer count the number of times he would wake up. I decided to start my day telling me things that I needed to hear. “It’s a brand new day, I’m so grateful to be waking up by my son’s side this morning”, “It’s going to be okay, I know I can do this”, “I’ll do the best that I can today and it’s enough”. ★★★

    Pretty quickly, things STARTED SHIFTING in a BIG WAY.

    >>>>>>>> You CANNOT always CONTROL the ROOT CAUSE of your issues, but you can certainly try to NOT SOAK that ROOT in poisonous chemicals (negative thoughts and emotions) and instead add nutrients (positive thoughts and emotions) that will help you feel MORE NOURISHED.

    I was using food as a BAND-AID for everything that wasn't going well in my life.

    It was all gone within few minutes.

    This whole bag of chocolate chips that I had planned to mindfully enjoy throughout the week was all gone.

    Food had become a BAND-AID for everything that wasn't going well in my life (read how I broke free below.......!)

    I really wanted to learn moderation and how to embrace the grey, but everything was always so black and white... And no matter how much I kept trying, I always ended up at the same place: standing alone in my kitchen with a finished box or package of food…

    I was so SICK of this ENDLESS CYCLE…. a never-ending DOWNWARD SPIRAL…

    ☞ Trying to be good and restrict my calories ---> overeating…
    ☞ getting back on track ---> eating my emotions…
    ☞ finding a new eating plan ---> starting it for a few hours before eating something “not allowed”…
    ☞ feeling like shit about myself ---> taking “before” pictures of “fat” me at the moment hoping it will motivate me to get back on the wagon ---> feeling even more like shit about myself…
    ☞ finding a “new” approach after hours spent googling away ---> feeling so much hope that maybe this was the solution to my problems ---> starting next Monday ---> lasting for a few days or week ---> not seeing the results I wanted ---> giving up…

    ☞ And OVER and OVER and OVER AGAIN……. for about 2 decades…

    >>>>>>> FAST FORWARD >>>>>>

    I’m so happy to be OUT of this restrict–binge cycle.
    I spend SO MUCH TIME + ENERGY over the years being CONSUMED BY IT.

    +++ So what did I do to BREAK FREE? +++

    I STOPPED trying to use a BAND-AID (a diet or new plan) to fix the problem which was so much deeper than my weight or appearance.

    I finally took my courage into both hands and decided to start digging. I looked at the roots, found the different toxins and poisons that were contaminating them, and replaced them with FOODS + HABITS + BELIEFS that were truly NOURSIHING.

    I started:
    ☙ feeding my MIND with more positive thoughts instead of constantly bullying myself in my head all day long.
    ☙ feeding my BODY with enough food instead of wanting to punish her by over-restricting my calories.
    ☙ feeding my HEART by getting the tools and support I needed to learn how to let my emotions flow and my heart feel understood and connected.
    ☙ feeding my SOUL by growing my spiritual practice.

    If you find yourself not doing the things that you know would be good for your body, I want you to know that it is NOT YOUR FAULT. This is what society tells us to do and marketing/advertizing makes us believe that going on the next diet and/or losing the weight will solve all of your problems. But it NEVER DOES.

    How many YEARS have you been TRYING this approach? Over and over again?

    And tell me the truth… do you feel like you’re getting lower and lower on the spiral of life?

    Are you READY to start MOVING UPWARD on the SPIRAL of LIFE?

    Then it’s time to look at the root of your symptoms, whether your symptoms are health issues or toxic habits. 😉

    Are you supplementing with band-aids?

    Are these all the supplements you've tried so far?" I asked my new client while reviewing her intake form.

    She had been struggling with bloating, constipation, fatigue, an autoimmune condition, and many other annoying symptoms that had been consuming her in the last few years.

    "No, they're all the ones I'm taking now, as recommended by my natural doctor." My heart sank. This story keeps repeating itself over and over again but I never get used to it…. (read more)

    When I ask my new clients the list of supplements they’re on, half of them are on a list of 10-12 DIFFERENT SUPPLEMENTS.
    Some they might not even remember who suggested it and why they’re taking it. But they’re being “good” and keep taking them.

    Even though we could argue that it’s best to take 10-12 natural health and dietary supplements compared to the same amount of medications, the end result is that it’s still A LOT OF PILLS… and most of the time, people AREN’T EVEN SURE these SUPPLEMENTS are DOING ANYTHING.

    I’ve been there too. With my adrenal fatigue + hormonal imbalances + gut issues + desperately wanting to lose weight,

    I’ve taken a ton of different supplements.

    I was constantly LOOKING FOR THE NEXT FIX.

    I really wanted the supplements recommended by this and that person to work for me.

    I really wanted the supplements that the people sharing their success story took so I could be that person too.

    I really wanted to fix myself and get rid of all of the things that were wrong with me by popping some natural pills.

    Many people are now realizing that MEDICATIONS are just a BAND-AID on our SYMPTOMS and that they don’t help correct the ROOT CAUSE…
    … but “natural” supplements can do JUST THE SAME!!!

    I’ve seen it time and time again:
    ★ over-reliance on supplements instead of looking deeper at the roots…
    ★ feeling like you have to keep trying more and more…
    ★ feeling like your body is broken…
    ★ always looking for the next best thing…

    But it’s time to press the PAUSE button. Slow down.

    HEALING is not like a race. Not even like a marathon.

    HEALING is more like GARDENING.

    You have to uncover and untangle the ROOTS of your symptoms, remove whatever toxins are contaminating them and replacing them with foods + habits + beliefs that TRULY NOURISH YOU.

    Starting with the roots, then the organs, body systems, and each and every single one of your cells.

    This is how true transformation happens.

    Are you READY to get to the ROOT of YOUR SYMPTOMS?

    They wanted to put a band-aid on my ovaries.

    They wanted to put a band-aid on my ovaries.

    What if your doctor offered to take a pill to mask your symptoms …WITHOUT correcting the root cause of your symptoms? WOULD YOU TAKE IT?

    That’s what my Dr suggested….. 

    "What? How the heck is going back on the pill going to help my PCOS?" That's what I thought but I stayed quiet. But in my head and my heart, this didn’t feel right.

    This happened to me with PCOS but it happens ALL THE TIME with all kinds of health issues.

    In 2011, I was diagnosed with PCOS, which stands for Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, after not having a period for almost a year and a half. It’s a condition where the hormones are imbalanced that is often accompanied with irregular periods and can even lead to infertility.

    The standard approach to “treat” PCOS is to go on the birth control pill to regularize the menstrual cycle ARTIFICIALLY with the use of external hormones.
    It’s like putting a BAND-AID on a WOUND that STILL has a SPLINTER in it.

    Our periods are a good way to monitor how our hormones are working in balance with each other. But I didn’t want to go on the pill just for the sake of having a regular period. I wanted to get my periods back naturally.

    How could taking hormones help me balance my own hormones and how could I track my progress if I take the pill that masks my body's own natural cycle?

    This just didn't make sense.

    So I said no.

    And I decided looking for the TRUE ROOT CAUSE.
    I had some DIGGING to do to uncover them. I had to UNTANGLING to do to see and understand the roles of different factors more clearly.

    Then, I had to REMOVE the TOXINS contaminating my roots and replace them with FOODS + HABITS + BELIEFS that truly nourished them. Slowly but surely, the new nourishment I was getting from my roots started nourishing my organs, body systems, and every single one of my cells.

    And I felt better than I had ever had.

    Getting to the ROOT of your SYMTOMS = where healing & true transformation happen.

    Are you ready to get to the root of YOUR symptoms?

    FREE MINI-COURSE

    Free Mini Course “Get to the root of your symptoms” starting next week June 26-30, 2017. Join my group to learn to do what I did to heal myself and what I do with my clients to help them do the same.

    NOTE: I’m NOT saying there are cases where going on the pill is a good idea. It’s really individual and there are women for whom it’s very beneficial. My point here is that I wish doctor made more of an effort to look for the root cause and correct it, whether you are on the pill or not.

    I'm Aglaée Jacob (feel free to call me AJ) and I'm a non-diet dietitian, heart & soul nutritionist, and self-love guide. I'm the founder of Radicata Nutrition, which was inspired by one of my favorite words: roots (Radicata is Latin for roots).

    I help women who feel crazy and out of control with food go to the ROOTS of their food + health issues so they feel NOURISHED in their mind, heart, and soul and can finally find PEACE and FREEDOM with food, their body, and their life.

    If any of this resonates with you, join me in the Radicata Nutrition Community to watch my FREE mini-course “GET TO THE ROOT OF YOUR SYMPTOMS” starting next week. I hope to see you there!
