Hi, I'm Beth Ann

a pharmacist turned functional medicine wellness coach, meditation teacher, and hypnotherapist who firmly believes the best medicine for our everyday wellness is available to anyone without a prescription. You just have to know where to look! I’m also a wife and a mama to three littles, so I know how strapped for time and overwhelmed with information we all feel.

 

BURNOUT EPIDEMIC

Almost every woman I have the opportunity to work alongside is going through some version of the very same angst that knocked me to my knees not so long ago. We are standing in a burnout epidemic, and we're cooking slow like frogs. It's time for us to jump out of the boiling pot together! I had to walk a pretty difficult road to learn that we're not supposed to live life constantly stressed, anxious, and on edge, but I wouldn't trade that stretch of my story for anything - it was an incredible gift.

 

UNWELL

You see, it turns out I started a wellness company having no idea just how unwell I was. What a racket, right?

I didn’t jump into business a fraud of any sort, mind you - I was totally healthy on paper. All my numbers and stats (you know the important ones they check for life insurance and such) were precisely where they needed to be, and I had poured myself into this business as a way to share everything I had learned and was continuing to learn with others. You can read all about that part of my story HERE,

FAITHFUL
Just a few months after the launch of Prescription Wellness, I developed severe anxiety (you can read about it 
HERE), and the experience made it quite clear that one simply cannot be well with a broken spirit. Spiritual health plays just as vital a role in wellness as physical, mental, and emotional health. It's all connected, and every aspect matters. As I allowed the Lord to heal and breathe new life into my spirit, the functional medicine + faith approach that is now  the foundation of the Prescription Wellness process began. 

Meditation is an integral part of the faith element of PW. I spent my whole life praying/reading my Bible/going to church (if you know, you know), but it wasn't until my thirties that I learned that while prayer is talking to God and is super important, meditation is listening to the still small voice of the Holy Spirit. This is a game changer. 

If hearing God were the only benefit to meditation, that would be enough. It’s amazing. But God is in the business of going above and beyond, and there is so much more benefit built into our design from this practice. Studies now show that meditation is clearly associated with decreased depression, decreased anxiety, decreased stress response, pain response, and insomnia along with an increased overall quality of life. And that is just scratching the surface.

Meditating physically changes your brain structure for the better with consistent practice, as well as modifying your biology on a cellular and even a genetic level. It's so vital to our well-being that meditation is now incorporated into every program and package offered through Prescription Wellness because I don't know how to do wellness without it, and I wouldn't want to.

MIND OVER MATTER
Even with all the healing that functional medicine and meditation allowed in my life, I still recognized a need for therapy to deal with residual anxiety, but the thought of spending years in a therapist's office to finally reach a breakthrough felt both daunting and inadequate. That's when I discovered hypnotherapy. 

In one session, I had the most tremendous, life-altering breakthrough, and I was hooked. I wanted to uncover every limiting belief, every cultural lie I held in my mind as true, and eliminate them. And naturally I wanted to be able to do that for my incredible clients as well. 

While I was healing and rewiring my own mind, I also began noticing that I could predict how much success my clients would have long-term based on the the way they spoke, even in the very first consultation. Their words were a clear reflection of their confidence in themselves and their belief that true wellness was possible for them.

Ultimately, I came to the conclusion that I could give people all the tools in the world to get well, but if their mind blocked them from implementing those tools, the benefits would never be fully realized and lasting.

In this life, there are what I call capital-T Truths. You are a beloved child of God. That is Truth that is True no matter what. And then there are lower case truths, beliefs that are only true because you believe them to be.

These are the truths I now help people rewrite completely with hypnotherapy. And it. is. AWESOME.

Hypnotherapy is a process of inducing a specific brain wave that allows the nervous system to relax so that you can access your subconscious thoughts and memories. During a hypnotherapy session, a client is assisted in transitioning into an alpha brainwave (subconscious mind) which allows the client to review and rewire thought processes that can help them resolve a specific issue in their conscious, daily life. It’s very easy, comfortable, and anyone can experience incredible benefit from it.

So, there you have it.

Body: Functional Medicine 
Spirit: Meditation
Mind: Hypnotherapy

Wellness is absolutely available to you, and I would be honored to come alongside you as you discover that Truth for yourself.
