Hi there, I’m Joli Tripp, NTP, BA, MBIS and CHWC.
As the founder of Mind Blowing Wellness, my goal is to help women discover the physical roots underlying their emotional stress.
Here’s my story…
Like you, I searched for answers as to why I felt lousy, physically and emotionally, for so many years. Like for 25 years.
Emotionally, I was perpetually on edge, shaky inside, worried, panicked, burned-out, stressed, irritable, overwhelmed, obsessed, ‘hangry’, hopeless, joyless and exhausted.
My list of physical symptoms was even longer…chronic dehydration, couldn’t sleep, racing heart, constipation, stomach aches with every meal, frequent bladder infections, sinus infections, chronic neck and back pain, debilitating headaches, freezing hands and feet, and extremely dry skin combined with acne, yep, lovely adult acne.
I’ll bet your list is even longer.
I landed in the hospital on several occasions.
I gave up the stressful job. Twice.
Moved across the country. Didn’t help.
Saw every doctor on the planet. Ok, maybe I exaggerate just a bit there. But it felt like it…Can you relate?
I’m sure I was branded a hypochondriac.
There were no answers. Except to prescribe anxiety and anti-depressant medications. The drugs left me feeling dopey. And soon I found that I needed more and more to calm myself down. I realized that was not the solution for me, just a really bad band-aid.
Finally, I decided that the traditional medical route was just not getting me anywhere. (Yeah, I’m a little slow). It was time for me to figure it out on my own.
There was something wrong with my body. My symptoms were not just ‘all in my head’. I realized that I would have to lead the charge to figure it out. The medical system was not going to do it for me.
After a lot of Googling, getting more confused with conflicting information, and going down the wrong path way too many times, I stumbled upon the Nutritional Therapy Association (NTA).
I enrolled in their school. Fast forward to graduation.
The NTA gave me the tools to assess my underlying health issues and to tailor my own program of support.
I discovered the roots of my emotional distress, the foods that were causing me trouble, why I had stomach problems, the source of my chronic pain and how to test myself for other imbalances. I learned from my training at the NTA which nutrients would support my body.
I started making changes in my nutrition, my lifestyle and corrected my imbalances.
Within weeks, I was feeling better. I felt joy for the first time in many, many years! I found that little things that used to irritate me just became amusing. I felt like being social again.
I SLEPT…all night long!
Not every day is perfect, but my world has completely turned around. Life is a new adventure every day.
It’s never too late to feel great!
