KENKO or Kenkou is the Japanese word for health. What I offer you is to feel healthy, happy and absolutely wonderful in your body. It’s hard to get your foot in the door; accepting yourself, lack of nutritional knowledge, and physical and mental stressors can all prevent you from being who you are meant to be.
Amanda Filipowicz, CNP, BES
Founder and Holistic Nutritionist
As a child I suffered largely from eczema for which I was diagnosed as a baby and at the age of five I was labeled with having ADD; I was a very excited child, with far too much energy. Apart from taking topical medication for my skin (as I would scratch excessively- till I bled- while I slept) my parents didn’t have me take any medication.
The signs and symptoms of both (eczema and ADD) seemed to subside around the time I entered high school. However, this was also the time when I began my struggle with an eating disorder. It manifested as anorexia, lasted a little over a year or so I thought. I didn’t understand then that It had stuck with me from over a decade. I binged, purged and restricted food, supplements, people, etc., trying hard to not go back to where I was in my teens; never realizing that I was unwell or that the issues that I had could go away.
Through my schooling and the help of my peers as well as friends and family I have been able to move forward in a safe and balanced way. What I offer you here is the opportunity to become the best version of yourself, to love yourself to the fullest, throw away a clouded view of what is ‘good’ and ‘bad’ and discover a life without guilt, anxiety and discomfort, one that is filled with positive vibes, bliss and pleasure.
