This is Dr. June Rousso’s Story!     

june2Over the years working as a psychotherapist and through life experience, I have come to realize the powerful impact that healthy diet and lifestyle choices can have in our lives. While most of us know what we need to do in terms of diet and lifestyle, guidance along the way provides support and points out road blocks so that we can move forward to achieve our goals. Along with working as a psychotherapist and nutritional consultant, I have a weekly nutrition blog designed to educate people about diet, lifestyle, and the healing properties of food. The ultimate goal is to help people make more informed health choices.

In terms of diet and lifestyle, there are many changes that have helped people lead healthier and happier lives. For myself, the most helpful step was to eliminate processed foods from my diet as much as possible, find a suitable exercise routine, learn to relax and try laugh more, and to avoid toxic relationships in my life. When symptoms appear, I seek out answers before resorting to medications that can often mask what truly ails us. In most instances, food and supplementation is my medicine. These are some of the practices that I try to convey when working with people seeking guidance. Every diet/lifestyle program is tailored toward a person’s individual needs.

While always interested in nutrition and emotional health, the real turning point came a number of years ago when life was especially stressful and unmanageable. I used to say to myself, “Something has got to give,” and what gave was a bout of pneumonia. Realizing that stress had taken its toll on my immune system, I chose to look at health holistically rather than just treating symptoms. A visit to a functional medicine doctor who is trained to look at the whole person revealed several conditions that were contributing to fatigue and anxiety, making it all the more difficult to cope with stress. I am not unique in experience life stress. We all face stresses in our lives. My goal is to help people acknowledge and accept their feelings, and to consider all the different facets of their lives that they can look at and make lasting change for health, physically as well as emotionally.
