Having spent 25 years working in the health and wellness industry, Izabella wasn’t always the shining example of health that she is now. She learned the hard way that without your health you have nothing.
She says: “I learned a long time ago that your health is your ultimate wealth. My life took a dramatic turn when at 30 years old I was hospitalised as a result of a hectic lifestyle and lots of stress at work. As a young, healthy and ambitious journalist, I thought I was invincible! I was on a mission to build a successful career and prove myself within a very male dominated environment.
I eventually pushed my body way too far and heavily paid the price for it, almost losing everything in the process. I suffered all kinds of symptoms, including paralysis, a loss of speech and I really thought I was dying. My dramatic health experiences, together with numerous life challenges triggered my interest in health, nutrition and power of the mind to ensure that nobody else would ever go through that.”
Izabella’s mission is simple… To give simple, easy to follow and effective health solutions to leaders who are responsible for making key decisions at home and in the workplace. “Whether you are the leader of your family, your business or your team, it’s essential you look after yourself first. Poor nutrition and work related stress is a global problem that gradually causes burnout, creates havoc with your health and has a massive negative impact on your life and the people who look up to you as a result.”
She continues, “I see many people going from one diet to another, gaining more weight and health problems in the process. They are confused, depressed, disheartened and often left with no hope to really achieve their desired results. It breaks my heart to see busy mums and career driven professionals following some of the destructive patterns that led me to a hospital bed 30 years ago. That’s why I am on a mission to prevent burnout, improve your health and increase performance in all areas of your life.”
Izabella is a recognised leader in the world of nutrition and you’ll regularly find her in the press, on the radio shows, featured in and on the cover of many magazines. She is the nutrition sponsor for the World Record Expedition, having been commissioned to work with the 65 Degrees North team on their two expeditions for injured veterans. They successfully recorded the ‘World’s First Unsupported Crossing of the Greenland Ice Cap by an Amputee’ in June 2015 and completed the ‘Kili Challenge’ in February 2016.
Inspired by her amputee friends, Izabella started running at the age of 50 and went from an untrained runner, to now running ultra-marathons and helping raise funds for Blesma, The Limbless Veterans Charity and last September she completed 100k ultra run.
In addition to her wellness business and studies, Izabella has attended much international training and studied with world renowned scientists to ensure her knowledge really is at the cutting edge of her industry.
Her teachers include a Nobel Prize Laureate in medicine, Dr Louis Ignarro, the late Jim Rohn, Robert Kiyosaki and she is also a past graduate of the Professional Speakers Academy. Her award winning book ‘Stop Dieting Start Eating – How To Look Delicious, Think Nutritious and Spice Up Your Life’ brings clarity to the concept of healthy eating and helps you understand how what you eat and how you think has a major impact on your health, shape, energy and your overall well-being.
She often laughs, saying “I have the curiosity of a scientist, the spirit of an adventurer, a logical mind like a man and a heart full of passion”. Her signature is her smile, her infectious energy and the lasting legacy of ‘Be Delicious… always!’
