I would like to introduce you to our next Casa DeConfidence Podcast guest, Melissa Slemp. She is a wife, mom, type 1 diabetic, certified health coach, and personal trainer. How did she get on this path, you ask?
Melissa was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at just 14 years old. As I am sure you can imagine, managing diabetes as a young teenager was a struggle. However, Melissa didn't let that slow her down. She took the time to learn about her body and what it needs. After finding her balance, she wanted to share that with other busy working women.
So, Melissa created the S.H.R.E.D. Framework, a foundation of 5-Key Intentions, easy steps to build your core health strategy. Practicing these steps consistently has helped her thrive through diabetic retinopathy, menopause, empty nest, and life's curve balls, all while balancing blood sugar. Here is what she said,
“I have lived with insulin dependent diabetes (type 1) for 39 years. Through personally understanding the daily challenges of this chronic disease, I decided to specialize in this area to help other women achieve full health. I love to support clients in balancing their nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle routine, in this crazy journey called life!”
I encourage you to join us on this week's podcast episode to learn more about balancing health and happiness, whether you are challenged by diabetes or not. Her words of wisdom and methods is suitable for all levels of health and wellness, diabetes or not.
