Hi! I'm Your Coach Gaby
Welcome to my world
Ready to Restore Your Adrenals and Ditch Fatigue for Good?
I learned how to transform my health, digestion, and body –– and I’m here to help you do it, too!
Hola, I’m Coach Gaby. Fibromyalgia and Chronic Illness warrior.
You want to be able to enjoy your life, but you’ve been struggling with “being tired” far too long. You dream of feeling free of exhaustion and body aches, energized after exercising, and filled with energy, but in reality, you feel:
- TIRED – It’s all you can do to make it through the day without falling asleep at your desk or dozing off on the couch, and you have zero energy to engage in the activities you love!
- SICK – Your digestion is a mess, your joints and muscles ache, you have a long list of symptoms including headaches, allergies, rashes and other issues that are holding you back from enjoying your life!
- FRUSTRATED – You’ve tried countless fad detoxes, diets, and cleanses, and nothing works. Every new regimen leaves you feeling hungry, deprived, and cranky, and if you “cheat”, you feel guilty and angry with yourself.
- DOWN – You want to feel body-positive, but deep down, you know that your poor gut health is causing external issues. Your clothes don’t fit right, you dread occasions where you must dress up, and some days, you just wonder how you let yourself go.
You are not alone in feeling this way, but there IS hope!
I know this because I’ve been EXACTLY where you are right now.
Meet the Coach
Hi there, nice to meet you! Allow me to introduce myself briefly. My name is Gabriela Velasco, and I am incredibly lucky to be married with three beautiful adult children and one darling grandchild. I count my blessings every day!
However, after a decade-long battle with all-consuming chronic pain, I barely had the energy to talk with my family or friends, much less give them the love they deserved.
Let me tell you a story
Ever since I was young, I have always had trouble with my health. I spent most of my years relying on acid reducers, and everything I ate caused my body distress. I felt bloated often, struggled with constipation, then and I was at a loss for what to do about it. At that point, I was suffering from Chronic Pain. I was exhausted most of the time; the visits to my primary care doctor were endless until I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, autoimmune disorder, neuropathy, chronic fatigue, and depression. Not much he could do about it, so he referred me to pain specialists, rheumatologists, neurologists, physical therapists, surgeons, and psychiatrists. I was given opioid painkillers, non-opioid painkillers, vitamins, spent countless hours searching the internet about my condition, and even had surgery. Some of these helped relieve my pain others even made things worse.
So, I did what most people do, I searched on the internet, read every book, tried every program, and well… nothing worked for me.
My body would ache afterward; I started gaining weight and going to see a new doctor was a less than pleasant experience knowing the end of the result, NOTHING.
Now, I know that my food wasn’t nourishing my body and benefiting from it. I was running in circles and making the problems worse! Until I truly dug in and gained the knowledge, I had no idea how my gut and body were impacted by what I was eating.
Hitting Rock bottom
My pain was out of control. My gut problems persisted. I didn’t improve because I kept eating all of the foods that were making the problems worse. I wasn’t paying close attention to how certain foods were making my stomach and body feel.
I was frustrated and thought my body wasn’t working quite right. This was all because I was just feeding my gut problems. Even worse, I felt exhausted, sick, and moody all the time. I never had any energy, my body hurt, and my digestion was a mess. All I wanted to do was to comfort my pain.
It was when I realized that my poor gut health and all the symptoms, I faced every day were keeping me from being the person I dreamed of being! I wasn’t emotionally present at all.
My Journey To Healing
I began to look more closely at my life and at my diet, suddenly realizing that the food I was eating was just contributing to the problem. All it took was a bit of research for me to see what I needed to see. The food I was eating were having a negative impact on my gut. Then my poor gut health was having a negative impact on the rest of my health and my life.
So, of course, my first step was to change the food I was eating every day. It was tricky to get used to because I had never considered what I was eating. I bought and ate the food that I wanted to. I wasn’t previously concerned about my health.
My research led me to realize that my gut health is connected to the rest of my health. So, after hours of research and plenty of time figuring out what worked best for my body, I ditched all those gut issues. As a result, I ditched a ton of other issues.
What a difference this made!
In just a few weeks, I began to see changes. I was less grumpy, had less stomach pains and felt better as a whole. Since then, I’ve only gotten better.
A New Found Purpose
My experience changed my life in wonderful ways, and now, I’m on a path to help others! I want to help you reclaim your life by getting your gut in great shape!
To best help others, I enrolled in the Health Coach Institute and Functional Nutrition Alliance to become a Health and Life Coach and a Functional Nutrition Counselor so, I could learn as much as I could about nutrition. Now, as a Certified Health Coach, I have the passion, experience, and knowledge to help you achieve your health and life goals.
In addition to helping you get your gut in the right place so you can live a healthy, comfortable life, I also have the experience as a Reiki Master to guide you and support you as you work to reach your goals and reclaim your life with the power of energy!
