Health is a Quest and I’m here to guide you towards Vitality
Hi, I am Jessica Lee Reader, a Certified Master Nutrition Therapist, and Health Writer. I created Vitalized Body as a place where you can learn and grow as you enhance your health and lifestyle. Vitalized Body offers education, inspiration, and resources for you to Embrace Vitality.
As a child, I moved frequently with my family for my father’s job. By the age of 17, we had moved to 8 different states. We landed in Colorado my senior year of high school. It was a challenging move to leave the heavily wooded Poconos. My group of friends meditated and swam in the waterfalls of our backyards. Overnight I was surrounded by people who skipped school to go shopping at the malls and eating at food fast joints. Within a short matter of time, I lost my roots and the connection to nature vanished. I no longer honored my body and it showed in the form of anemia, high triglycerides, chronic fatigue, and poor digestion.
I followed my passion for writing and photography and went to college for a couple of years. My health was poor and my grades reflected that it was time to make a change. It was time to revive my yoga practice, ride bikes, learn healthy cooking, and research the keys to vitality. The force was strong in my path of healing. I felt so great I wanted to share my insight with everyone. Over the years I created a successful practice as a cosmetologist and spoke to clients about healthy living from the inside out.
In 2007, I enrolled at The Nutrition Therapy Institute (NTI) and became a Master Nutrition Therapist, which is where I am currently an Instructor. I have continued my education in functional medicine, sports nutrition, and yoga instruction. I am honored to be able to support others on the path to Vitality as the community here at Vitalized Body strengthens.
Some of my favorite ways to support vitality are essential oil baths, yoga, healthy eating, adrenal support, journaling, hiking, gardening, and clearing space for new and exciting things to come in. I invite you to start integrating some of these activities into your daily regime and begin to Embrace Your Inner Vitality.
Self care is so important! Below is my Recipe For A Vitalized Body. Enjoy!
