GET HEALTHY WITH MARIA XIQUES
Holistic Functional Nutritional Therapist, RWS level 3 practitioner
Barre, Pilates and Yoga Instructor
I have a desire for transformational growth. For example, I believe consciousness is key and I’m also equally fascinated with the human body. My Journey to overall wellness started at the age of fourteen when I decided to get in shape. I continued to exercise religiously all these years. I LOVE IT. It’s therapy for me. I got certified in yoga, pilates and other fitness classes then soon realized I love to teach, motivate and inspire. My fitness goals inevitably lead me to pay closer attention to food so like so many on a similar path seeking guidance, I made mistakes. I placed my trust in "so" called authorities and I tried all different kinds of diets knowing nothing about the real facts concerning nutritional value or how that affected me. Their intentions may have been in the right place but unfortunately they were not well informed. I struggled with an eating disorder, depression, anxiety, lack of focus, lack of clarity, hormonal imbalances and digestive problems. My quality of life was very deficient in comparison to how I “looked”. I got sick of living that way so my passion for overall wellness and "PROPER" information continued to increase. As I continued to seek and learn I found the connection between food and “EVERYTHING”... The way you FEEL physically and emotionally. The way you THINK. The way you GROW. The way you HEAL and the way you DON’T. I continued to independently research anything having to do with lifestyle, spiritual growth, health and nutrition finally making my way to what is authentic. I knew I needed to keep learning and share my knowledge. My mission, by no accident, led me to Immunitrition where I trained as a Certified Healing Foods Specialist. That lead me to The Nutritional Therapy Association (NTA) where I was certified as a Functional Nutritional Therapist then a certification as a GAP’s Practitioner and most recently completed level 3 at Restorative Wellness Solutions. My purpose in creating Wholistic Revolution is to utilize my experience to help you and your family transform. To educate you, heal you and empower you to live a healthy and happy quality of life or just simply arrive at a better version of yourself and to create a domino effect that will help and guide as many people as I can reach.
