REDEFINING MEN'S HEALTH

While our society often assumes that men are immune to worrying about their body or don’t feel pressured to look a certain way, I know first-hand that this is far from the truth.

In fact, eating challenges, weight issues, and fitness flops are often not talked about. Men aren’t supposed to have body image issues.

Masculinity tells us we have to deal with it in silence. We have to “suck it up” and put on a front that everything is going fine.

As a result, we have lost touch with this precious instrument — our body — that is the gateway to our physical and mental wellness.

I have learned early on that we need to respect our body and let it be the guide to help us live a life of alignment and integrity.

MY ORIGIN STORY

I battled anorexia when I was a teenager.

I was plagued by voices in my head — obsessed with counting calories, what I could and couldn’t eat, and how I could exercise to manipulate my body.

I stopped eating altogether because starving myself was safer than experiencing the intense and complex emotions that I felt in my body.

The struggle with myself became too much to bear. Moreover, it was impacting all those around me: friends and family I cared about.

I needed to change. For myself. For them.

I hit an all-time low when I was crying on the sofa with my mom next to me. I realized that I wanted to live a healthy life but I couldn’t do it on my own.

SURRENDER IS NOT GIVING UP. IT’S MOVING ON.

I surrendered the need to control every aspect of my world and allowed help into my life.

I dropped out of high school, got hospitalized, and began the long journey of nurturing myself back to health with the support of medical professionals, psychologists, nutrition experts, and more.

It was the hard work of turning self-confrontation into self-care, every day.

I knew I was the only one who could determine the outcome of this battle. I knew it was my responsibility to take care of my body.

I also knew the way we’ve all been taught how to take care of ourselves is woefully inadequate.

I had to empower myself and relearn to trust my body so I could rely on it when life really got tough.

I had to redefine what it means to be a highly evolved man in today’s world. I want to help you do the same.

Why I Became A Health Coach

We’re at a crossroad every day as we make choices that affect our body and life.

Sometimes we’re forced to make a 180-degree turn, but more often, we only need to adjust the course by a few degrees — yet that minor change will lead us to a completely different place down the road.

If you’re here, I bet you’re one of those guys who don’t want to say, “Wait, how did I end up here?” five, ten, or twenty years from now.

Even if you listen to that inner voice of guidance, you still have to overcome the many old patterns and resistance built up over the years.

  • Are you willing to be intentional and put in the effort to go down a path that aligns with your values even if you can’t be sure where you’d end up?
  • More importantly, do you have the physical health, mental strength, and emotional resources to do what it takes to get there and fulfill your potential?

INTERATIVE HEALTH COACHING

Rising to the challenges life throws your way is not only where the rubber meets the road but also where your mental, emotional, and physical health gets tested. 

As I continued down my path of healing, I began to question the assumptions on which my education was built.

I realized there’s a big hole in the western scientific reductionist approach to health and wellbeing.

I was drawn to the eastern traditions during my time living in Malaysia and Hong Kong (where I spent 4 years studying Buddhism at the University of Hong Kong.) I wanted spiritual grounding to inform what it means to live to a healthy and meaningful life.

The gift I received was access to ancient wisdom on living well.

My Masters in Mind & Brain Education at Harvard University allowed me to further integrate the technology of mind and body — applying biology, psychology, and eastern spirituality to health, fitness, and personal development.

I wanted a framework that was built on a solid foundation of a lifelong practice that results in sustainable wellness.

My Health Coaching Practice

Transformation is built on integration of your head, heart, and hands.

As they say, the longest journey a man will ever take is the 12 inches from his head to his heart.

Meaningful changes rarely happen when you’re just reading a book by yourself. Unfortunately, our society makes many men think that asking for help is a sign of weakness.

I can figure it out on my own” is one of the biggest pitfalls preventing people from reaching their full potential.

Don’t beat yourself up just because you can’t do it all on your own.

For me, without the support I received when I battled anorexia or the people who recognized my potential and held me accountable along the way — I probably wouldn’t be here sharing my story.
