Veronica Nabizadeh

Introducing Healing Health Coach Veronica Nabizadeh For your Personal Restart Our military life exposed me to many deeply rooted cultures and traditions, which cultivated our family values. I experienced life in various cities in Germany, Korea and Italy before living in the U.S. At an early age, I learned how to pack up and restart somewhere new. It was refreshing to re-invent myself, always hoping to do things better and with more ease. I was born in a scantily populated German town called Landstuhl. My father became an American citizen by enlisting in the Army and we lived in Europe for most of my young adult life. I am the second of four children and am proud to be a first-generation American of Mexican heritage. Today, I'm a devoted wife of 18 years and mom to my seven year-old-princess. While I am a Florida licensed attorney, I have always had the privilege of working with my husband in our medical practice. I've had the opportunity to study life and relationship coaching with Tony Robbins and Strategic Intervention and am a Master Certified Health and Wellness Coach through the Catalyst Coaching Institute. It's easy to renew oneself with the added benefit of youth, change of environment, living under the roof of one's parents and without the bumps and bruises suffered due to life's lessons. We were invincible, indestructible as young individuals. Getting old, feeling old was off the radar. As an adult however, It's so easy to find oneself in a rut. We've paid our dumb taxes (not related to IRS) and suffered through the lessons that life has presented to us. Some of those lessons, being repeats. In a non-sustainable way, we fixed our ideas, shaped our viewpoints, limited our beliefs and all of this negatively impacted the health of our bodies. We start feeling old before our time. Well, on one fine day, I found myself in the fast lane of a downward spiral. I had inadvertently and unequivocally formed a very nice rut for myself and I decided I needed to get out. Pronto. This is the basis for the creation of Personal Restart, a lifestyle and medical wellness practice that helps people do exactly that: Restart. We help people restart their lives through the use of cutting edge coaching practices and state of the art medical science. I have had a personal restart and feel that my life is spiraling up. I believe that everyone has the ability to look and feel their best through self-love, self-healing and self-reliance. Everyone deserves to have their hormones balanced, their energy restored and their limited beliefs replaced by the truth. I'm a self-taught herbalist and aromatherapist, practicing kitchen witchery at home for my family and friends. My kitchen is my favorite place in my home. I love making my own infusions, tinctures and body lotions and filling my medicine cabinet with workable natural products that I've created. Cooking for my family gives me so much joy. I've learned how to prepare healthy noninflammatory meals by fusing Persian and Mexican cuisines. My dream is to gently awaken the powerful spirit in all of us, helping us heal from the inside out, and experience the gift of living through health, gratitude, and forgiveness. It is an honor to write health and wellness articles for EU Jacksonville and it is my hope to share and spread my knowledge of how to do and be your best because it can be done if you so desire. If you want a personal restart, please call us at Personal Restart, 904-565-1001.

Over Indulge? Two Significant Ways Cure a Sugar Hangover

As a health coach, I have some things to say about how to best handle a sugar hangover, especially during Halloween. For those unfamiliar with this concept, a sugar hangover occurs when your body is inundated by significant sugar intake. Sugar, as whole, is increasingly recognized as toxic to the system. It’s like gasoline. It only belongs in the gas tank or combusting in the engine and nowhere else inside the car. A sugar hangover is akin to dousing your car with gasoline. Indulging in sugar may send you into a tailspin of body inflammation, joint pain, anxiety, depression and …

Fish Oils: Are They Good For You?

How lucky are we that we live in a beautiful city that provides a variety of places in which to fish! Now, I find myself challenged on how I can relate fishing, something that I have yet to try, to health and wellness, one of my life’s greatest passions. I’m grateful to know someone who can give a first-person perspective on what fishing does to someone’s state of mind.

I scream, You Scream…We all Scream With Ice Cream Headaches

Last month, a friend of ours asked my husband, a medical doctor, why it is that we sometimes get brain freezes when we eat ice cream.  Interesting question and it got me thinking.  Have you ever noticed that those things that cause the most pain, have the simplest solutions? Take the brain freeze for example. It’s an acute brain pain that can stop us in our tracks. It virtually paralyzes you.  The pain is intense because the nerves have been rattled by the sudden drop in temperature. Immediately, they start sending signals to the brain to tell the body to …

STAY HEALTHY: Am I Pretty? Love Your Body This Summer

It’s swimsuit, tank tops and flip flop season now that the heat and humidity have dialed up a bit. As I write this article, I’m thinking about a hysterical movie called “I Feel Pretty” starring Amy Schumer, and the fact that some of us will be dreading slipping into our summer attire because of poor body image. I took my young daughter to see the movie. We couldn’t stop laughing–it was actually quite funny! I was curious however, about how my daughter’s attitude would be towards her own body since an overarching theme in this flick is about body image …

Stay Healthy: One Expensive Truth Can Set You Free

In order to have a frank and honest discussion about personal healthcare, five axioms need to be understood: 1) Our state of health is our responsibility and choice. 2) Beyond healthy genetic endowments, there are no shortcuts to being healthy. 3) We need to want to be healthy. 4) We need to have some degree of belief that we can do something about it. 5) And finally, we need to know that our environments are often laden with toxicity. There is both toxicity from individuals causing undue stress, and from harmful chemicals in our air, food, and water that are …
