Neeva Kedem, A Certified Holistic Nutritionist And A Yoga Teacher Since 2012
I’m Neeva Kedem, a holistic nutritionist and yoga teacher in my 50's. My personal story may provide you with some inspiration. After all, learning from other people's experience is the smartest thing to do!
Up until the age of 40, I lived a ‘normal’ unhealthy life: I ate everything (lots of processed foods), I didn't exercise much, and my stress levels were - at times - skyrocketing. I was born and raised as an eat-everything and eat-as-much-as-you-can kind of person. I have loved food ever since I can remember. I still do - only that now I enjoy food in a much healthier way!
I had my personal life traumas; my parents divorced when I was a teenager and my mother passed away when I was only 18 years old (as a result of her unhealthy lifestyle). Shortly after, I became a single mother of 2 wonderful kids. Years later, after marrying the love of my life, I struggled with fertility issues for 7 years and had to go through many unsuccessful treatments (which ended in me getting pregnant naturally and having 2 more kids - but that’s another story…).
As a result of my eating habits and lack of physical activity, I was overweight, living my life on a diet roller-coaster like many others that I knew. Losing and gaining weight constantly became normal.
When I was in my late 30s, the doctor told me that my cholesterol and sugar levels are high and said that I should expect to need to take medications regularly within a few years. Since diabetes runs in my family, I figured that it's genetic and accepted it as something that cannot be changed.
But everything changed when…
Shortly after my 40th birthday, I was diagnosed with a serious thyroid dysfunction. The doctor ‘promised’ me that from now on I’ll have to take medication for the rest of my life. I was shocked. And this is when it hit me - I just knew that there must be a natural solution!
And so I started my search, reading tons of studies and articles, first specifically about thyroid diseases and then about natural health in general. And as they say, the rest is history…
I was able to cure myself naturally without ever taking any medications - my doctor couldn’t explain the ‘miracle’ I experienced. I left my photography career and chose the path of natural healing instead. I became a certified holistic nutritionist and a certified yoga teacher, helped many people gain their health back, and still am. As long as I breathe, I’m here to help others. My heart breaks when I see so many people suffer from physical and mental issues that can be solved with lifestyle changes!
My spiritual journey:
In 2002, I first heard about the concept of spiritual advancement. Up until then I knew nothing about it. But after taking my first spiritual awakening course, there was a whole different world that was opening up in front of me! I felt as if up until now I was walking in darkness, and all of a sudden someone turned on the light in my life and I could actually see. I could look back and analyze my past and present thoughts and actions; I could connect to my higher self and to the different energy vibrations of the earth.
Since that first class, I have dedicated most of my life to learning and developing almost every aspect of spirituality, mindfulness, energy work, and later on - yoga and healthy eating. It’s been a phenomenal journey and still is!
In the last couple of years I studied the Crystal Eye Technique, which is based on spiritual knowledge and is used to cure many mental health issues. The Crystal Eye technique does not take care of the symptoms; rather, it gets deep into the root cause of any issue, because only when you take care of the root cause can you solve the issue once and for all, and - of course - get rid of the symptoms.
What differentiates my work
Most treatments (for physical or mental issues), either in the modern medicine sector or the alternative one, are focusing on getting rid of the symptoms of a problem. Even acupuncture, which works on opening energy blockages in the human body and is considered a great alternative treatment, is wonderful for a short time only; if the person will not take care of the root cause of their issue, the blockages will most likely come back and the person will need more treatments.
Modern medicine eliminates the symptoms completely in most cases. And what are these symptoms to begin with? These are the body screaming that there is a problem that needs to be taken care of! Once we shut out the body’s screams with medications, we ‘forget’ about the problem as it doesn’t bother us anymore, and then, internally, the problem becomes bigger. Later on - God forbid - we could face a much more serious disease due to wiping away the symptoms of the issue when it was still small and manageable.
In my programs, I teach how to take care of the root cause of problems, which means you don’t only get rid of the symptoms, but you also get rid of the actual problem, whatever that is. And if you do a good job, it will never grow or repeat!
My Healthy Lifestyle programs combine various successful techniques that have been around for thousands of years, originating from all around the globe. I adjusted the wisdom to fit the modern world and our current typical lifestyle, which is very different from what it used to be in the past. I combine my studies about nutrition, mental health and physical activity with my personal experiences (eating disorders, fertility issues, depression and stress) in delivering a well-rounded program that reflects multiple perspectives.
I live in Toronto with my husband, 4 kids and 2 dogs, and serve customers online from all over the globe.
