Transformational Nutrition

http://learntruehealth.com/transformational-nutrition/

Transformational nutrition teaches us that having optimal health is not just about food.

We need to create a more significant conversation for health because food alone won’t fix us. We’re in for such a treat today because Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia teaches the psychology and spirituality of transformation and health. You’ll get to learn how to have a more vibrant life with transformational nutrition.

Through The Darkness

Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia shares that one time when she was speaking at a women’s conference. She talked about transformation, health, and weight loss as well as how to empower yourself, take control of life and health as a woman.

When it was time to have the audience ask questions, a woman asked her how to get through all of the darkness. Another woman openly voiced her doubts about whether Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia could adequately answer the question since she seemed to have such a good life.

But nothing could be farther from the truth. Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia’s whole life had been a struggle because she grew up in extreme poverty, drug abuse, alcohol abuse, and domestic abuse. She was also sexually abused when she was six years old. So, in reality, Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia lived a life that required her to be a survivor.

Hitting Rock Bottom

That’s not all. Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia also tried to kill herself by overdosing on pills years ago. She was so sick, had chronic fatigue, was 25 lbs. overweight, had severe acne, memory loss, and brain fog.

Naturally, Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia was in no condition to work, so she was broke. It didn’t help that she didn’t have family nor many close friends. She recalls living in a constant state of fear and panic. And although she tried many things, nothing helped.

One day, Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia decided to pull herself up. Taking a shower, she discovered lumps on her breasts, hence hit rock bottom that day. She again felt utterly broken. So she still thought of suicide, suffered from depression and mental health issues. She felt so sick of fighting.

“But I heard this voice, and it was my wake call. That voice said, “This hasn’t happened to you. It’s happened to you.” I then realized these things were supposed to be happening for me. Because I realized that at that moment, greatness was my birthright,” said Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia.

Investing In Herself

Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia ended up signing up for a nutrition certification program when she decided to invest in herself. She went on to other school and training programs. And as her health improved, she slowly began to work with clients.

“It’s not just about the food. The food alone will never heal us. There are reasons behind why we know what to do, and yet we still won’t do it,” said Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia. “I also realized we have this deeper hunger. So, understand your spirituality and what you are hungry for.”

She adds, “I started understanding the spiritual connection, relationships and heart connection was so important to healing. That’s when I started to see true transformation.”

Developing Transformational Nutrition

From that period, good things started to unfold. Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia’s weight fell off, her skin cleared up, and the lumps in her breasts turned out to be fibers, not cancers. She also started to understand at a deeper level the root cause of her health issues and heart issues.

Furthermore, remembering her deal with God, Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia got to work and started helping other people. Combining the science of nutrition with the psychology and spirituality nutrition, that’s where she created a method called transformational nutrition.

Shortly after she created the transformational nutrition method, more people wanted to dive deeper into learning more about it. So, Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia turned it into a more significant educational focus. She started a school and called it the Institute of Transformational Nutrition. Now, the school certifies people to become transformational nutrition coaches.

How To Begin Your Transformation

First of all, Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia says you have to understand what you are and why you are that way. Because ultimately, when you know, you’ll automatically transform into who you’re always meant to be. It’s only then can you step into your power.

“I like to ask people what they are hungry for. And what we’re all hungry for in the end is validation and acceptance for who we are. Usually, we are trying to be a version of ourselves that we think other people want. So we end up pretending our entire lives,” explains Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia.

She adds, “We are compromising who we are and what we want, as well as the things that truly make us happy. You don’t have transformation if you don’t experience some biological change, some spiritual change, and some psychological change. You have to develop a deeper understanding and a deeper truth that you can truly embody before you truly heal.”

Ultimately, Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia says it’s really about getting out of your head and into your heart. She says we tend to be logical, but that’s not the way we work. Instead, we make all of our decisions based on emotions and then we use logic to back it up.

Understanding Emotions

Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia shares that in reality, emotions only last for 90 seconds. Because the thing that makes it last longer are the stories that you keep replaying in your head about the experience.

“A belief is made up of three things. It’s the event that happened, the emotion that you felt and the explanation that you gave it,” said Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia. “So when you are feeling these emotions, go back to the explanations that you gave it. I think we have to remember if we want to be understood, we need to understand.”

How We Deal With Negativity

As humans, Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia says we have this thing called negativity bias. It’s when we hear something negative, we latch on to it and see that as the truth. We then spend the rest of our lives searching for evidence that the belief is true.

“It’s just the way we’re built. And it’s designed to protect us. It is designed to show us our flaws. So just let it go and stop beating yourself up,” advises Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia.

She adds, “We are just hardwired to pay more attention to negative information than positive information. Then it goes back to the most basic need which is just survival. When there has been extreme trauma in a person’s life, they can block the memory out, and the brain won’t remember.”

Blocking The Trauma

Our brain is indeed a very powerful organ. Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia personally witnessed it when her sister did not remember having a child after a car accident, and her child passed away.

“The body’s number one goal is to stay alive. And the brain knows that. So, if the brain knows something that the body can’t handle, it just blocks it out. And you won’t remember it,” Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia said.

Essentially, Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia says you have to understand what’s going on in your mind and your spirit if you genuinely want to heal. Because it is very powerful.

“See what serves you, and always look within yourself for that truth. But if you don’t ever live your truth, you’re always going to be imprisoned by other people’s opinions. You will always be hungry for that one thing you don’t have.”

Numbing The Pain

When you numb pain, you numb joy. Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia says when you are numbing that past that caused trauma and the fear you felt from that, you’re numbing happiness and bliss. So mostly, you’re taking away all of your power and giving it to the past, and that’s not okay.

“You’ll never be able to fill those void with anything other than what’s missing in the first place,” said Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia. “Food is so acceptable. So is the glorification of wine and drinking especially for moms and entrepreneurs. Because it is socially acceptable. We have to be willing to get back into the driver’s seat of our own life.”

She adds, “We’re here because we follow the status quo. But the real reason why we’re here is because we gave up our power. It’s time to do something different and time to start understanding. Furthermore, it’s a time to reconnect with who you are and a time to share and understand.”
