Wellife center is the place to come if you want to focuses on health protocols that support healthy graceful aging for every age group. It is the result of over 20 years of study, practice and personal experimentation by mother and daughter Naturopathic Doctors Norma and Brittany Curby. The concept had humble beginnings with each of them working to discover solutions to their own health challenges.
Norma’s health rejuvenation journey started late in life at age 50. She was a senior executive in a fortune 100 company working in a stressful high-pressure job, burning the candle at both ends. She eventually experienced multiple health issues including weight gain, fatigue, severe joint pains, memory issues and headaches. She was told by her medical doctor that her key health statistics were just fine, and her symptoms were associated with just getting older. ‘Getting older’ did not tell her anything about how her body was supposed to work or what to expect in the coming years. She set out to find the answers. She began her professional career as an engineer and always curious about how things work. She needed to know how her body was supposed to work. That quest for information about the human body lead her to into the medical field.
Brittany’s health journey began before Norma’s when she was quite young. She had always been athletic. Participating in sports and dance from a very early age, made her very tuned in to how her body was functioning. Teenager when she realized her vibrant health was waning. Initial diagnoses of allergies addressed some symptoms, but her body’s vibrancy did not return. It was freshman year in college when she realized something was significantly off kilter with her health. She had symptoms of widespread pain and overall body weaknesses even though she was doing all the same things that her best friends were doing who did not have any of these same symptoms. I knew I had to get to the root cause of my health issues. Over the next few years, she collaborated with medical practitioners, studied health and reviewed every bit of health information that she could get my hands on. But despite various diagnoses that tried to explain and address symptoms of rashes, brain fog, headaches, body pains and muscular weaknesses, some symptoms would go away just to be replaced by new ones. She finally realized that addressing her health issue symptom by symptom and organ by organ was not getting her to a vibrant health state. She needed an approach to get to the root cause.
They learned that there was one common denominator that affected both of their health, and over the years came to realize it also affected the health of all of their patients. That common denominator was chronic stress leading to wear and degradation of the body. Chronic stress comes in many forms, not only emotional and psychological but also nutritional and physical. They also learned that the ravages of chronic stress on the body could be reversed. Healthy aging takes a commitment to both gaining knowledge of how the body works and applying smart health strategies. It also requires understanding that we are each metabolically unique and that the solutions to address individual health issues are also unique.
