JEmma Judges - A-CFHC
ADAPT-Certified Functional Health Coach
My passion for health and wellness was planted in my childhood days with ballet, cross country running, swimming, surfing and rowing.
After University, I embarked on a 20 year world journey in project management, visiting over 35 countries. 80hr+ work weeks were my normal and I loved them. During this time, I witnessed many different cultures, observing how they lived, what they ate and how they achieved their version of health, happiness and longevity.
After going through a couple of emergency ‘fork in the road’ type health events, including an ICU stay, a blood transfusion and a significant back injury due to fatigue, the VALUE of health was rammed home to me. Projecting forward, I didn’t need to be an athlete, but I wanted to be strong, energetic and available to myself and to those around me. I needed to find the best “Return On Investment” for the time and effort I was putting into my health.
My pursuit of living well has morphed into wanting to understand what is now referred to as ‘health span’ – not ‘life span’. How can I continue to live well, for as long as I can? And how can I help others in this objective? This led me to Functional Medicine. The science of discovering the root cause of disease, as opposed to just dealing with the symptom. A Functional Medicine system addresses the 4 pillars of health – Movement, Nutrition, Sleep and Mindfulness – to create a holistic approach to wellness. This doesn’t mean there isn’t a place for conventional medicine, it’s just a matter of finding the best combination for your body and mind.
Through Functional Medicine Health Coaching, I will help you find a better work-life balance. I understand the demands of work, the demands of family and trying to balance it all. I will help you gain more energy, with better sleep, nutrition and movement, while reducing stress. Find your optimal ROI through coaching with me. Why not experience growth in your WELLth?
