If you’re a professional woman over 40 with a zest for life but have been feeling blah lately and wondering whether things just go downhill from here on out, you’ve come to the right place. That’s exactly what happened to me.
My name is Veronica Lim, Registered Nutritional Therapist and Functional Medicine Health Coach. When I was 48, I looked in the mirror one morning and felt totally lack lustre. I felt tired, my skin looked dull, I couldn’t sleep at night, I had night sweats, I felt down in the dumps, I know now that it was mild depression, I had zero sex drive, and where I could once think quickly on my feet, I now found myself with brain fog.
I remember the day I was talking with a few colleagues at work. This was when I used to draw up contracts in investment banking. Someone asked a question and I knew I had the answer…. but it was stuck somewhere in my brain. My 30-year old female colleague jumped right in. I had been like that!
It wasn’t something I wanted to admit to, never mind talk openly about, and that’s why so many women, like me, and perhaps like you, suffer in silence… not knowing that there is a solution, never mind where to look for it.
Thankfully I love reading and I picked up a book, thinking that maybe for the last time, I could lose those few pounds. What I discovered within the covers of that book shifted my entire paradigm. For the first time, I discovered the biochemistry of food. I learnt how food is not just fuel, but also information, giving your body messages about what to do. That was my turning point. I changed my diet and found an energy and clarity I thought was a thing of the past. People started commenting on my skin and asking me what I had been doing.
See, most of us are told that feeling tired or becoming forgetful are part and parcel of getting older. I learnt that we can influence how we feel and how we age, by taking back control of our health, through using food and lifestyle as medicine.
That’s how I came to spend over five years doing a degree in Nutritional Therapy, where I use scientific research to give women over 40 the tools to regain their edge and to feel sharper and more vibrant once again, using nutrition, lifestyle and supplementation.
