I have only had 1 sick day this year!!!
And that 1 day was because of eye infections!!!
This has never happened to me before --- all your hard work!
Judeo-Christians would call it an answer to a prayer; Pagans call it magic; spiritual people might say you manifested what you needed and others still may say it is coincidence. I am sure that 1,000 belief systems could provide that number of descriptions for the exact moment when need directly intersects its own solution. And that is the title that one would adhere to the beginning of my journey with Raquel Wolf-Jadeja.
In order to more fully understand the benefits that have been cultured and harvested in my work with her you must have a clearer understanding of where I began. Nearly four years ago I had a terrible diet by Traditional American Standards. Poor nutrition was coupled with a pack –a-day smoking habit and iced with a high pace/ high stress lifestyle. We had no formal (or informal) spiritual practice and because we did not control our money it controlled us, like some unruly teenager. There was little thought, care, or understanding for how truly damaging all this was.
Of course my husband and I knew that you should eat food that was freshly prepared, so we ordered out most nights. And I was aware that my lifestyle was playing a major role in my anxiety and depression, so I took prescription medication daily to manage the symptoms and never examined the cause.
In 2010 we decided that we would like to expand our family of four (my husband myself and two dogs) by one more, a baby. I am blessed by the fact that knew that I was in no position to get pregnant (smoking and taking medication everyday) We systematically began a plan to quit smoking and remove medications. By July of that year we were ready to stop avoiding pregnancy and by August we were expecting.
When I went for my 1st OB/GYN appointment I was thoroughly turned off by modern medicines approach to pregnancy and within that week I was under the care of a midwife. She began my instruction on holistic living and focusing mostly on my diet and nutrition.
As many parents do, my husband and I began to think about the kind of world we would be bringing a child into. Thankfully we began to think about our immediate environment, too. We tried to develop our knowledge of food and better eating (watching every frightening food documentary). We also joined a community of faith and through that Church we attended a money management class.
It would seem all our ducks were beginning to line themselves up, but the truth is that I was feeling overwhelmed confused and very lost. I really didn’t feel like I knew what I was doing. Every time I read or saw something new I discovered that my latest step was nearly as poor as the one before. That is when the universe and creation decided I deserved a life line in the form Raquel Wolf-Jadeja.
I did not understand what a Wellness Coach was, but I was keenly aware that I need help. Raquel methods helped me to set measurable goals. Her awareness that true health touches every aspect of your life has enlightened me and is helping me make sustainable and meaningful changes that improve the quality of my life in indescribable ways. She is dedicated, knowledgeable and kind. The non-judgmental, supportive and compassionate environment she creates allows one to be so open and honest. From that level of honesty she is able to make well informed suggestions. Whenever I have presented a question or concern Raquel seems armed with an array of ideas that could benefit my situation. When I become aware of the fact that I don’t know what I don’t know, Raquel is prepared with a wealth of information that deepens my understanding of something valuable or exposes us to something new that may be of interest.
Working with someone who is so passionate about their work could be suffocating. But with Raquel it is exhilarating. She is calm and measured in her delivery of information. She does not bombard her clients with knowledge but answers question, provides clarity, and guides you into deeper understanding of factors that affect your wellness goals.
When first setting out on this journey my husband was interested in working with Raquel. We all believed that with both the adults in a home moving in a positive direction we could create substantial changes within our home. Raquel customized a program that focused on us both as individual and our family as a whole. My spouse and I are often amazed how within a session she skillfully target each of us and our goals. Neither of us have EVER concluded a session feeling like we were underserviced, Raquel divulged to us that we were the first couple she treated jointly. Her mastery of her craft is so refined that we could have never guessed.
It is a great honor and pleasure to recommend Raquel to meet your Health and Wellness needs and I do so without hesitation. If there is anything that I can do to aide your decision making process please feel free to ask Raquel for a contact phone number and I would be more than pleased to speak with you.

Luckily for me, I agreed to try Raquel’s program trans-Atlantic and we worked closely together for over 6 months. Traveling near weekly to Europe from London for work was playing havoc on my health and social life. Having become a bit of a wall-flower, I also didn't feel I was putting myself forward enough in my career to be able to get the recognition I deserved.
My goals at the beginning of the program were multiple - to move forward in my career, to have a better diet, to be happier within my body, to reduce the number of infections I caught, and to restart my social life - essentially I wanted to change near every part of my life.
Many months later, as our final session arrived, I was truly surprised as to how far I had come. Nearly all of the many concerns I had put down were near non-existent in my day-to-day life. By working weekly towards small achievable steps, I have made numerous large adjustments to my life without even realizing!
My life has changed dramatically in the last 6 months, and I feel a much healthier, happier and a more complete person. I know I owe the bulk of this to Raquel's guidance and support. My manager and friends have also noticed, and commented on how much I have come into my own since the beginning of the year - a few wanted even to take credit and I had to let them down and say I had been working with a health coach! I know I will take forward all of the things Raquel has taught me in my future endeavors, and am ever grateful for her patience and generosity.
