Your Personal Struggle Stops Here.
Your personal struggle stops here. Whether your goals involve weight loss, better eating habits, improving your family’s health, or just taking better care of yourself, Root Down Rise Up is here to help you. We work with 3 basic concepts:
We give clients the information and tools they need for their specific goals. Then we guide them in the process of determining what works for them and their situation. We teach people how to listen to their own bodies and their cues.
When clients have the tools they need to succeed, they are more connected with themselves and accountable for their actions. They begin to take their health into their own hands and make choices that will benefit them mentally, physically and spiritually.
This is where the magic happens! It takes work, but it’s worth it. Transformations are goals being reached and sustained. It’s where new goals are set because the client doesn’t want to stop – they’ve had a taste of what they’re capable of and have made the mind-body connection. They’re ready to create, tackle and re-evaluate life as it’s thrown at them. They’re in a more honest relationship with themselves and are more attuned to their true abilities.
Hear What’s Being Said…
As a busy Mom, I am always putting everyone else’s needs ahead of my own. Jackie’s nutrition and lifestyle coaching is helping me stay focused on myself. She is helping me to make better choices so I can live a healthy and clean life. She is my advocate, my guidance, my support and my friend. We are making small changes, setting achievable goals and she holds me accountable in the most gentle, kind and loving way. It’s exactly what I need. She is incredibly knowledgeable about all things concerning “clean living”. She is an Angel in human form, and I absolutely adore her. Can’t recommend her highly enough.
Jackie’s encouragement is infectious and her support is unwavering. She is truly my cheerleader and after every session I feel like Superwoman. She is simply the best!
With Jackie, I am learning that the food I eat contributes to my disposition. My food choices are directly affecting my mood, brain fog, joint inflammation, and sleep. With Jackie I am learning about foods that fuel and balance my body. I am working on understanding my eating habits and being mindful of the choices I am making.
About 10 weeks ago I made the decision to look at my well-being as a whole. For my adult life I have thought of wellness as a gym routine, being a certain weight, and having a certain disposition around others. What I am discovering with Jackie is that my well-being is so much more than that.
To say that working with Jackie and practicing her creative techniques has changed my outlook on overall wellness fails to adequately describe how much she has changed my life for the better. Over the past 20 years, I have equated overall wellness with optimal physical health. I focused on diet and exercise, taking care of my physical body, and succumbed to frequent and debilitating bouts of intense anxiety and less frequent bouts of depression. I often thought “well, that’s just how I am.” My quest for overall wellness changed within weeks of working with Jackie. She quickly noticed how tightly wound my physical practices are to my emotions and showed me how to align my physical and mental wellness. Approximately half-way into the six-month program, I noticed that I felt physically stronger, was consistently less anxious and unable to remember the last time I felt down.
Jackie put my quest to wellness back into my hands without judgment, criticism or a slew of difficult rules that are impossible to follow long term. She taught me that I am in control of my journey and put me on my own personal path. She is transparent, honest and encouraging. These qualities have kept me on this path and I have reached small goals along the way. Just halfway into the program, I achieved so many of these small goals that I unknowingly also reached larger ones. Today, I am more in tune with my body and its connection to my mind. I understand the difference between overall wellness and physical fitness and know how to achieve it. I am in a better place having worked with Jackie and look forward to continuing my journey with her.
What Jackie has done for me is different. She focused on my whole self and my individual needs. She recognized my individual distinctions and innate differences. She put aside popular trends and fads, and focused on my individuality and what it will take for “me” to be well.
Addressing nutrition and more
During our hour-long health consultation we’ll discuss your concerns, goals and health history – touching on everything from family history to your current state of health, stress level, sleep patterns and activity level. Our program addresses other factors such as:
- Where does that food come from?
- How did it get to you?
- What happened to it along the way?
Hi, I’m Jackie.
I believe that all of us should be living our healthiest life
I thoroughly enjoy feeding people, creating healthy recipes, exercise, meditation and relationships. I believe we need to know ourselves on the deepest level in order to have a balanced and harmonious life.
I want people to know as much information as they can before making food/health decisions. I want moms to know there might be something they can do for a child who has eczema, allergies, ADD or rashes.
