IshbelWELL Yearly Membership

Hey there, 

A phrase I’ve been known to repeat to my clients is “the body isn’t a bank”. 

Here’s what I mean by that – it seems only fair that when you diligently take care of your body that it should respond in kind and reward you with good health, but it may not surprise you to hear that it often doesn’t work that way.

Fortunately or unfortunately, our body’s aren’t savings accounts. 

Day in and day out, we have to show up and take care of ourselves, and when we don’t – the body stops functioning optimally.

And, every day, every month and every year the body is changing. Getting yearly blood work is a great way to stay on top of your changing body’s needs.

The IshbelWELL Yearly Membership Program is designed for people who want yearly blood work done with a functional nutrition perspective while staying on your A game with a continuous glucose monitor, monthly wellness education, workshops, dietary and lifestyle refinement and one-to-one appointments.

If you can relate to one of the scenarios below, the IshbelWELL Yearly Membership Program is a great choice for you.

The “I Can Cheat” Scenario

Check this out – let’s imagine that for the last four months you’ve been hitting the gym on a daily basis and been enrolled in one of the IshbelWELL programs. 

  • You feel like you have a new lease on life. 
  • The digestive issues are gone.
  • You’ve lost 10 lbs.
  • Your monthly cycle has regulated. 
  • You’re amazed at how much progress you’ve made, and you’re ready to relax and coast for a while.  

You start skipping your daily workouts, and enjoying a few glasses of wine at night along with some cheese and crackers.  You were in the Gut Healing Program, and cheese was a yellow food for you (inflammatory), but you were able to bring it back in without issue.  You know that ideally you shouldn’t eat a previously yellow food on a daily basis, but a few pieces of cheese here and there won’t hurt anything…even if you are eating it most nights.  

For a few weeks you don’t notice much of a change in the way you feel. 

If anything, you’re relieved to not be working so hard at taking care of yourself. 

Suddenly, what feels like out-of-nowhere your pants feel a little more snug, and it’s hard to get out of bed in the morning.  A few more weeks go by, and your monthly cycle is late by four days.  The PMS and the constipation are back.  

And you think “Seriously?!  I worked so hard to resolve all of these issues!  This process didn’t work.  I should have a lot more leeway with my self-care now.  I’m broken, and I shouldn’t even try anymore.”  

The “I feel like crap” Why doesn’t my blood work reflect this? Scenario

Most people get a yearly physical which involves a series of blood tests to test things like:

  • Cholesterol
  • Thyroid function
  • Kidney function
  • Liver function

The test comes back and shows that you are fine…but the problem is that your hair has been falling out in clumps and your energy has tanked. You’ve read up on thyroid issues, and your symptoms fit. You’ve also been struggling with weight gain, and your cholesterol is slightly high but you’re confused about what to do about this. You’ve been told to eat lower fat to regulate your cholesterol, but you don’t feel well when you do that. You want to take baseline supplements to support your health, but you don’t know what to take, and you definitely don’t want to spend money on supplements that you don’t need.

The “I don’t know what I need” Scenario

If you’re interested in upping your nutrition and self-care game, but you don’t know where to start – you are in very good company!

There is no one-size-fits-all for nutrition, exercise, supplements, stress-relief and lifestyle changes. We all are unique, and the self-care approach must be different for each of us in order to feel our best.

Utilizing blood chemistry tests allows us to get a bird’s eye view of all of your body’s systems. From there we can formulate a self-care program that addresses your symptoms, goals and blood chemistry results.

Ugh.  I’ve gone through more wellness programs than I can count.  I’ve done detoxes, every diet in the book, supplement protocols and workout challenges.  Some programs garnered amazing results, while other programs didn’t.  

When I hit a wall with my health and got serious about healing my Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, I knew that the first thing that would need to change was my mindset.  I could no longer venture into wellness overhauls only to complete them, lose my momentum and return to my previous behavior.  

If I was going to resolve my health issues once and for all, I was going to have to change my mindset from “When is this going to be over?” To “Wow!  This is working, and I feel so much better.  What else can I do to build on this momentum?”  

When I changed my mindset, amazing things started to happen with my health.  I was able to harness the momentum I built with my initial gut healing process and propel myself forward by digging into deeper therapies that helped to detox my liver, balance my blood sugar and resolve my fatigue once and for all.  

Most importantly, I trained myself to look for answers and inspiration rather than dwell on the challenges I was facing.  

Have you ever been on a treadmill or a spin bike, and all you can do is stare at the countdown screen?  Every second that you’re sweating and watching the clock feels like a century.  It’s excruciating, and if you’re anything like me, you can only convince yourself to do those hard workouts a handful of times before you give up and decide that this working out thing is just not for you.  

The body isn’t a savings account.

The body isn’t a savings account.  

The body doesn’t “save” all of the amazing self-care practices you’ve integrated into your life. It’s what we do every day to take care of our bodies that adds up to a lifetime of feeling good.  

Taking care of our bodies and its unique needs can feel like a lot of hard work, or we can change the most pivotal piece of our wellness journey – our mindset – and show up to these self-care commitments with a sense of inquisitiveness and grit.  

Every time we step on the treadmill or plan our meals out in advance or say “no” to the second glass of wine, we are giving ourselves the gift of long-term health.  

Every day we have the opportunity to bypass short-term satisfaction for long-term health. 

The Continued Healing Program is intended to give you all of the tools you’ll need to make long-term choices not only easy, but eventually automatic, so that choosing the path of wellness is who you are and not just what you do. 

Adjusting to a changing physiology.

The onion metaphor is a good one for understanding the body’s continual healing journey.  Every layer we peel provides us with more guidance.  Blood chemistry testing can be incredibly helpful in deciphering your body’s changing needs. 

Together, we can meet your body’s needs every step along the way so that you can continue to up level your quality of life, performance and presence.  

With Ishbel, I learned how to mitigate food cravings. I now know they are not a matter of willpower but my body’s feedback. For the first time in my life, I have made a sustainable lifestyle change in my diet. It is not based on deprivation, but instead on knowledge of what my body needs to function at its best. Now, refined-carb treats have become just that – treats – not gateways to over-indulgence. Ishbel has an amazing judgment-free manner of eliciting accountability. I have learned to listen to my body and now recognize the interconnectivity of body, mind, and spirit. My improved quality of life is a direct result of Ishbel’s three-discipline approach – body, mind, and spirit. If you are wondering if Ishbel’s programs will work for you, I encourage you to try it.

I feel so much better since implementing her nutritional tips and recipes. She never judges you and really listens to you.

Working with Ishbel in a holistic way is not just a pleasure, it’s also the most effective approach I’ve found to supporting my physical well-being. Her breadth of knowledge, her ability to intuit what’s needed in each encounter, and the skillful precision of her recommendations, are what make her so effective. Ishbel is a 10 out of 10!

 Ishbel maintains knowledge about any new improvements in her field…Her counseling to me has been invaluable as I transitioned to an anti-inflammatory diet. I am a healthcare practitioner – a dentist for over 40 years. I can recognize an honest, caring superstar and separate them from someone with polished marketing skills, but nothing else.  Ishbel is the real deal!!!
