    POWORDFUL Conversations this week with Dr Vilma Brunhuer (of Vilma’s Wellness), we talked about the affects certain foods can have on our well-being.

    My reasoning for having Dr Vilma on the show, was to highlight how very often when we refer to being ‘positive’, we generally associate ‘positivity’ with the mind i.e. focusing on the positive things rather than the negative. Albeit, when it comes to food, some of us tend to throw that ‘caution to the wind’, and crave for the ‘negative’ things rather than the ‘positive’.

    We overlook the fact that, mind, body and spirit are ‘one’, and that being or remaining ‘positive’ is also associated to the food we eat in keeping the equilibrium.

    -> How many of us continually feeling bloated, can honestly say that we have learned how to tune into our body, to listen to its messages?

    -> Could this be part of the reason why you’re feeling frustrated, annoyed and uncomfortable for having over indulged?

    -> Do you equate your lethargy to age?

    -> Do you know which foods you eat that energies you, and which foods drain you?

    -> Are you really tuning into your body and listening to the messages it gives you?

    Twenty years ago I was out of tune with my body, and not listening to the messages.  It was not until some unsightly rashes appeared on my body, and on my face that I know I had a problem.  The problem was no longer invisible!

    The signs had been there (such as fatigue), after eating particular foods.  I was constantly feeling drained and lifeless. I remained continually irritated for not knowing how to tackle the problem.

    It was after an allergy testing, the confirmation came.  It was wheat and dairy products which left me feeling lethargic, and right there and then, I was forced to STOP and take ACTION.

    Personally, having the knowledge about which foods keeps me alert (porridge without milk of course), and which foods leaves me feeling bloated, and sleepy (such as wheat and diary) has been a great help to me.  It is those foods that keep me feeling low, rather than ‘high alert’, that I steer away from, particularly before important presentations or meetings.

     ‘Our body (like a machine), operates by specific set of instructions or conditions, which equally equate with positive or negative energy.’ 

    ~ Olive Guillais-Lazure

    By finally learning to tune into my body and listening to the messages, forced me to change how my machine operated. The time had come to give it new instructions and conditions to follow.

    What changes or conditions are you prepared to make towards your wellness?

Client Testimonials

  • Once again thank you for the excellent training.

    I found the presentation of the high level workflow very helpful. It enabled me to understand the organisational structure, the core duties for each section, the authorising procedure and the work processes required to achieve desired outcomes. This diagrammatic overview is worth more than a 1000 words and helps provide a mental picture of the ‘grand design’.

    Being able to formulate these concepts in the way in which you did; displayed an ability to empathise with newcomers and empower them to effortlessly connect with the workflow more speedily. If I had not received your information at the time that I did; it would have taken longer for me to process overall procedures.

    Also highlighting key concepts to manage data processing prevented overload and helped me understand core tasks I need to master in order to establish a baseline of future success.

    Your assistance has been invaluable.

  • I attended the ‘How comfortable are you shrinking to fit’ through business/personal life’ Workshop. It was the jump start I needed. I knew I had lots of skills and experience but I lacked the motivation. I was stuck and shrinking by the minute. The workshop helped me to release any negative doubts and to fulfill my potential. I left the workshop excited about creating a life without limits’. Thank you Olive you are an inspiration.

  • Olive has an empathetic and encouraging coaching style. Olive has helped me become more self aware and to vocalise thoughts and put actions into place to help me move forward with my goals. I have enjoyed working with Olive as my coach.

  • Brilliant and very professinal coaching sessions that I was looking forward to. They helped me to define my goals and made me very motivated to carry out the tasks necessary to reach them. Thanks to Olive’s positivity my outlook on life in general and on my abilitieis to achieve my goals, is now very positive, leading to an increased enthusiasm, focus and energy.

  • Very powerful conversation there with Kamara. I loved it. Olive you have a very good voice for media & you instil confidence in the interviewee.

  • Before you even started your presentation, your positive energy was felt in the room. During the presentation, I felt I had went through a self discovery journey. Also, I have found answers to what was holding me back.
    After the presentation, I felt very happy and physically a lot lighter than before.

    The next morning, I woke up feeling very refresh and I was able to focus and get tasks done which would normally take me a couple of weeks to do, which it took me a couple of hours.

  • Olive has a very unique ability to address the key issues and was able to help me determine (for myself) what I needed to do in my life to achieve the goals I had set out at our initial session.

  • Olive was clear in making sure I considered and exercised all options and tools available to me to which could help with managing my time. After each session I was encouraged to go away and think about my options, write them down in conjunction with statements so that, not only my mind was conditioned to think more optimistically about tasks that lay ahead, but also I became active in making sure that outstanding tasks were completed.

  • The coaching has really helped me in achieving my goals. It has helped in putting my business in the right perspective. It has also helped me to stay focused, and to have a more positive attitude.

    Olive has really helped me to discover who I am. Now I can put things down on paper and take action, and to avoid procrastination as much as possible. Big thank you to you Olive for helping me discover myself.
