Hi!

Iím Ashe. I am many things. Iím a massage therapist (not licensed yet, as I just recently graduated from an intense year of massage school). Iím an entrepreneur Ė I make natural body care products and sell them through my company Body On Earth, through which I also practice massage therapy and intuitive healing. Iím a revolutionary for many things, but most specifically for The Bliss Revolution, which is my way of bringing more love, light and joy into the world. Iím a rebel. Iím a goofball. I am very, and increasingly, authentic. And I am dissatisfied with my state of wellbeing Ė my health and wellness Ė in the world.

I am twenty-six years old, 5′ 10″ andÖwell, truthfully, I donít know how much I weigh. I disowned my scale several years ago, after getting so caught up in ďdietingĒ that it became a life-changing obsession. The last time I went to visit my doctor, which was probably two months ago, they weighed me at 212 lbs. I donít think I actually weigh that much (doctorís scales always seem high to me). I am well-versed in many different schools of thought around diet and nutrition, having spent most of my life on the dieting roller coaster. I have tried everything. At my best, I was 140 lbs., vegetarian, fit and content ó at my worst I was 230 lbs., on a strict omnivorous diet, exercising every day and miserable.

Medically speaking, Iím quite healthy. My cholesterol is excellent, my blood sugar is good, and my thyroid is functioning well. I have very mild exercise-induced asthma, but it is steadily improving since I quit smoking some time ago. I had mono in college ó about six years ago now ó and I canít quite shake it. Iíve discovered, with my doctorís help, that it re-activates when I am stressed, much like a cold sore. It even tests positively when itís active! I also have IBS, with which I was diagnosed twelve years ago.

Although Iím very healthy by Western medical standards, I feel unwell in my body. I have very little energy. Iím tired most of the time. I feel just a little bit sick almost all the time. I have recently started having problems with acid reflux. I feel remarkably weak on occasion. My skin has recently been breaking out more than usual (I had notably bad skin as a child). I feel stressed more than Iíd like to, and I have been having random panic attacks for the last year or so.

Presently, my eating habits could not be much worse. They have been steadily decreasing since I left vegetarianism five years ago, and in the last year or so my diet has mostly consisted of eggs, potatoes, bread cheese, and fast food of all varieties. Though I have found great physical success in the past through yoga, pilates, belly dancing and other kinds of exercise, I havenít really done anything that could be considered exercise for at least a year now.

In short, I feel the lack of wellness and balance in my body, and I want it back. In fact, I want it to be better than it ever has been before.

I have a vision of my optimal wellbeing. I am fit, active, beautiful, full of energy, radiant and joyful. I will have that. But not through fad diets and ceaseless exercise. This time, I will actually reach my goal through immense self-education and research, deep self-awareness and sound decision making.
