While she exudes health and wellness now this wasn’t always the case. Janeen was the fast-food mom. Like many of us, juggling parenting left her short on time and convenience trumped health. Her body paid the price. In 2011 Janeen was diagnosed with breast cancer.
This life-changing diagnosis forced Janeen to evaluate her lifestyle. Considering there was no genetic link to breast cancer and determined to find the cause of her health struggle, Janeen discovered how her food choices were detrimental to her body.
It took her some time, as many of us to implement the knowledge she was acquiring. While undergoing chemotherapy and radiation she found it hard to commit fully to a healthier lifestyle. Even after treatment was completed, it was difficult to adjust and Janeen struggled with severe depression. Her friends and family called her “pajama mama” because she never wanted to get out of her pajamas.
Realizing her life was at stake and recognizing she did not fight for her life to feel depressed and unhealthy, Janeen looked for a solution to help her make a change. She tried all different programs to get herself back on track with little to no success. She had hit rock bottom and knew she had to do something!
This is when Janeen found South Bay Wellness. She is not just a coach now, she lives the lifestyle and is a walking testament to its benefits. “South Bay Wellness was exactly what I needed. It has truly transformed my life for the better.”
