The story so far...

I can't keep all of this to myself anymore. I have years of knowledge and experience and the most responsible thing I could do is share it with you.

 

I love continuous education and being a leader in elevating industry standards. Health & Wellness are the most important to me.  My body is my home and I want it to be the best it possibly can.  I'm not talking about trying to be super lean or any unhealthy habit like that, I'm talking about health. 

 

Health means so many things to me.  I have competed in so many fitness competitions around the world but found in the end it was a massive weight-loss competition, it was not glamorous or good for me.  Health now to me is sunlight, whole foods, walking through the bush, being loved and having a clear purpose.  Health is not the absence of disease, it's all of the things I mentioned above.  There is research that proves that being kind improves your self-esteem, this improves self confidence.  

I have been an Emergency Paramedic for many years, lifestyle and poor choices lead people to disease, poor mental health and illness.  We can all make better choices and Melissa Zimmerman Wellness Co. can guide you to make the best choices for your goals.  I have been a Qualified Counsellor for nearly 2 years but let me tell you, I feel like I have been a counsellor for much longer as a medic.. I would say well over 15 years.  The part I love the most though is being a Clinical Mentor to a new generation of Paramedics.  Helping them pave a clear path and succession to their career goals.  That part of counselling for mental strength and wellness drives me with purpose as I see so much potential in people.  Counselling is for those that want to not just be "better" but want to succeed in what their chosen purpose is.

What I have also seen in people is a complete lack of essential vitamins, minerals and amino acids and to be able to know that, you must have years of education on anatomy, physiology and know the pathophysiology of abnormal changes in body functions that are the causes, consequences and concomitants of disease processes.  The body is an amazing, quite phenomenal, complicated machine, especially our brains. I love delving into neuroscience.  It's beyond fascinating and should be made mandatory in the later years of school.  

Neuroscience research spans from molecules, cells and pathways, all the way up to complex human behaviour. Neuroscience integrates physics, chemistry and biology, with studies of anatomy, physiology and behaviour, including human emotional and cognitive functions.  I think understanding who we are and why we are here would make a better planet.  Have you ever wondered why you are here and what your purpose is?  

My other exciting study pathway is neuroplasticity, the ability we have to create new pathways in our brains is amazing.  We don't have to stay the same, we can change our thought patterns and become better versions of ourselves.  We can grow and we can always learn new things. Neuroplasticity is defined as the ability of the nervous system to change its activity in response to intrinsic or extrinsic stimuli by reorganising its structure, functions, or connections.  There are 3 types of Neuroplasticity - Impaired, excessive and adaptive.  Look it up, it's just an amazing rabbit hole to go down if you want to learn.  

But the story so far is simple, I want to show you how you can be a healthier you, fitter you and have optimum overall wellness.  I have studied so much and I have also been down all of these paths to experience what works and what doesn't.  I promise you, health, fitness and wellness is quite easy to achieve.  Sure we can take pills but only some of them work and then you have to combine so many other things to achieve the results you want. 

 

Change how you think about wellness and I will show you so many other better ways to achieve your goals.

One size does not fit all, you are uniquely YOU, I see you.
