I Johanna Thomas founded PureJo through my love and passion for natural health and wellbeing matched with a desire to help and make people more aware.
Life is a journey and I am here because I have been through multiple health issues, some of which I still battle. I have become an empowered wellness nut and I adore food as much as ever only now appreciating that what I put into my mouth will become me thus my diet today is very different from how it used to be!
Through this journey I never managed to get the answers or cures I needed from conventional western medicine. I feel doctors are paid by big pharmaceutical companies to throw drugs at the symptoms we have rather than trying to find the cause and heal that. Then these drugs we take give us side effects that we have to go back and get more drugs to help with those – it is a vicious circle. So my quest began to listen to my body and realize the power of food and stress management especially to make me feel good. What you put into your mouth is only one part of wellness though. By balancing and nourishing the body with lifestyle and positive thoughts the body can adjust and heal itself.
I have things to learn, love, teach and play. There are still contradictions in my life and everyday I have to remind myself not to beat myself up about being imperfect. With so much knowledge from learning and trying to heal myself over the years I now want to share it all with you and teach others that the decisions they make today will define their tomorrow.
There is no quick cure or diet that will fix everything for everyone. It is about bio individuality – one person’s nourishment is another person’s poison so we have to find what works for ourselves.
Take control of your health and you will have wealth.
Strive for your own Brilliance – not perfection – be the best version of yourself.
PureJo I hope will inspire you to embrace a more positive, toxic free outlook and use food as medicine.
