My Story

 

 

Welcome to Thrive Health And Beauty!​

I’m Angie, a real clean food lover who loves to cook, and a big fan of herbal medicine, living in Southern California. I’m also a big advocate of self-care because health is all about balance. 

Thrive Health And Beauty is my online practice where you’ll find wholesome Sessions of Programs with Healthy Recipe Tips. I hope that you’ll be inspired and engaged in more clean foods, and happy to embrace a life that’s a little more simple and far more vibrant.

Previously, I was an executive for Design and Merchandising. However, I was running the whole nine yards from design to production. My days consisted of long hours, high stress, and poor eating, usually while running between meetings and binge eating and sleep 4 to 5 hours or less daily for years. Wellness was out of my priority, and I sure didn’t understand balance. I was a quintessential workaholic and had to take care of my own family with children at the same time.

I’d use to keep the same weight and use to wear sizes 0 and 2. Then one day, I looked at myself and realized that I’d gained more than 20 lb. and from that day to the next day I've been gaining pounds and pounds every day for years. I’d also often feel tired, fatigued, had a headache, and one symptom virtually after the next.  

Then a few years before that I was diagnosed with type 2 prediabetes, I'd also suffered from unknown allergic reactions. Eventually, I realized my work and lifestyle were affecting my health, so I opted for a life do-over. I resigned from my job, and I started to change my lifestyle step-by-step and add more whole foods to my diet.

After several months off, the dots finally connected, and I learned how to really nourish my body through food and lifestyle. Currently, I’m back to my normal weight and wearing the same size clothes that I’d use to wear, and most of all, my blood sugar level is normal. I feel clean, light, and happy! 

 

I've done it, and I'll continue my journey and so, do you!

Join our health journey, and let's transform together!

Today, I’m passionate about helping others to experience their transformation and gratitude, and happiness!

My Philosophy

 

We all living 21st century, many things have been changed and changing. Although, one thing that is not and won't change is that we are human beings. What we need to consume is what's growing on the earth. Back to basic, be simple, and natural, and adequate amounts of solid pure water, and clean food with a traditional diet.

 

As bio-individuals, we all have different dietary needs. There are no one-size-fits-all diets. In fact, the founder of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition Joshua Rosenthal, often mentioned, “One person’s food is another person’s poison.” In other words, no one diet or lifestyle works for two people. 

This means adding more whole foods into your diet rather than focusing on removing certain foods. Since food habits form over many years, and food choices often have an emotional component, so simply taking things out of the diet often doesn’t work for a long period of time.

Therefore, I would love to help you to find your bio-individual diet and lifestyle through my program sessions. What is important and What really matters is not the destination nor achievement, it is the process, transformation, throughout your journey.

Let's start and moving forward together!
