Client Success Stories
I find it’s super rare to meet someone who not only ‘gets’ my challenges with my health and AutoImmune imbalances, but who can help me find my way. Lexi is like that super cool travel guide who has been in the neighbourhood and had a GREAT time and suggests things I’ve never even heard of but may want to check out. Patiently she waits for me to discover my unique healing path, generously extending her hands for support and with enough strength to pull me through the rough patches - and keep me accountable.
I never knew there were so many different ways that I’ve been malnourished … It took getting 3 autoImmune conditions to help wake me up. After 5 years of stumbling down my healing path, Lexi and Mana Wellness have helped switch on a super bright light of clarity to see all the ways that I can nourish myself into a pain-free, graceful existence. Mahalo!

I literally never imagined how far I would come in this 6 month program. I have minimized my hypothyroid symptoms such as fatigue, mental fog, stomach pains, inflammation and insomnia. I have also lost over 15 lbs since I started and feel great! I feel so much more mental clarity on how to achieve what I want in life and she has helped me be more clear in what my expectations for what I want out of life are. I have been given guidance and tools that help me get through daily challenges. This program has helped me mend my relationship with food, dispose of toxic relationships/feelings and given me more confidence as a woman. The guidance Lexi provided me helped me become at peace with the idea of growth and has lead me to a spiritual awakening. I actually want to set aside time for myself and she helped me understand the importance of self care and self preservation. I literally have never felt more centered in my life.
I learned new and innovative ways to provide nourishment for myself. The greatest changes I've experienced have been making time for myself, helping to heal my relationship with food, & learning about myself to make me a better person, wife, and friend. I'm also feeling like myself again and unafraid of the unknown! Lexi has awoken something in me that has fueled my desire to learn, and DO for myself. I actually feel like I can achieve whatever I want. My self confidence and self empowerment feels explosive! As a coach she is available, empowering, non judgmental, & kind. I recommend her programs to women who are scared, who feel that they need change, and who want to be their best selves. Make the leap. It’s so worth it!!

Wow, what a woman! It's rare that I find someone who can shed light on what's going on for me better than I can myself (I'm a women's empowerment and sexuality coach. And I'm EXCELLENT at tracking the shadow). But she nailed it with such precision and intuitive alignment. Her listening to both me, and to greater energetic patterns was tangible. Alexis helped me identify a pattern that has been the biggest issue in my health. And it wasn't food, or exercise. It was a round money. Alexis has a deeply integrative approach to health. And understands that if one aspect of our life is out, it will impact everything else. So she strives to bring balance back in all areas, which I appreciate. I've felt such a lack of drive and a sense of increasing powerlessness over the last couple of months. I've been fatigued and losing my energy quickly. I left our session accessing my fire again and capacity to impact my world in a positive way. I walked in with impotent life force, and in one session, left feeling vibrant, alive and ready to conquer the world. I am grateful for this woman and know I've found an ally and guide when I really need one. Because we all need someone. We're not here to do it alone. Thank you Alexis. You're amazing!!

Having the opportunity to work with Lexi was such a transformative experience that truly feels like such a gift. At a time when my anxiety was at an all time high and I was experiencing total disconnect from my body and spirit, she gracefully held space and deeply listened. What I appreciated most is her complete confidence in what lies within each of us; our inner guru and own deep inner knowing. Rather than give advice, she asked questions that helped me regain connection to my inner teacher. She kindly held me accountable and at the end of each session I felt eager and inspired to do my part, to do the work to better myself mind, body, and soul. From the moment we first connected in our initial session I could sense that I was embarking on a self healing journey guided by a beautiful soul who truly operates from a place of overflowing love, passion, and commitment. Lexi, I am forever grateful!

I reached out to Alexis with chronic GERD and LPR that I have been struggling with on and off since 2017. I didn't see it as chronic because no doctor has ever really said anything about my issues except "change your diet". At the time, I wasn't willing to and didn't have the support I needed. I wasn't sold on the idea of an elimination diet or any of the approaches but I was drawn to her vibe and wanted to feel as amazing as she looked. I was trying (and struggling) to release some old habits; smoking, drinking, caffeine, the croissant that stares at you in the bakery, etc. They were my vices and got me through the day, week, month and essentially my life up until that point. I learned to take out what I didn't need even though I thought I did. Slowly I learned not only about what foods were triggers for my body, but what triggers my mind too.
Ladies, I'm a full-time freelancer; my whole life is stressful. I knew a majority of my pain was from stress of money, stability, and uncertainty of my future (will I have clients? will I be able to afford all the monthly bills? will that person pay on time?) but it wasn't fully realized until I worked with Alexis and really started to embrace the protocols and teachings from our sessions.
And then one day (with the help of reading a book that Alexis recommended to me) it all kinda hit and I woke up, literally. I felt freedom after I explained to her my struggles, old beliefs, and how I was hiding as a woman in my work and making my life miserable. This in turn, was shutting down my self-expression which, apparently, RUINS my body internally and externally.
And yes I relapsed, yes I struggled, and yes it took over 6 months but here I am, smoke-free, confident, and almost completely pain-free. A friend of mine just commented and said I was glowing!! Like I knew I was but damn people can feel it too! I feel like I am becoming the woman I've always wanted and have let go of the external expectations of who I'm supposed to be.
But none of that would have been possible without taking a leap of faith in Alexis. I trust this woman in the same way I trust my mom y'all. So if you are struggling with GERD, acid reflux, LPR, I highly recommend at least 3 months. I did the 3 months my way (...over 6 months, lol) but honestly, it will change your perspective of food, womanhood, and your image of self. 2020 will be amazing for me because I took the time to embrace a new mindset and through the support of an incredible woman.

When I began this program, I was definitely not comfortable in my own body and struggling with the cycles of binge and restrict. Since starting this program, I feel like I have more control of my life. I'm not just being pulled along, but I have an active part in it. My skin has improved immensely, my digestion has improved, my blood sugar doesn't spike and drop anymore or as often (it's more stable than ever), I'm able to fall asleep now, and I feel more in-tune with what my body needs. My mindset has gone from hating myself to loving and accepting myself. I've gone from wanting to lose weight to wanting to be and feel my healthiest - and I know eating well is a part of that. I don't know if my weight has changed but my body image has. I don't stare at myself in the mirror as often but when I do I see a woman who is healthy and in-tune with her body.
The elimination diet was a pleasant surprise in that I now am aware of how my body reacts to what I eat. I think the best parts of the program for me were around the work with my thoughts and the empowering statements. That really was the biggest part of my desire for binging. There were things that I did not want to look at and Alexis helped me better see my truth and work with and through these things. I saw that I did not have to rely on food or lack of food for support. I am able to view food as something that nourishes and supports my body and dreams, rather than hurts my body and limits dreams. One of the biggest changes has been not binging and restricting. Eating meals consistently even if I don't "feel" hungry but eating to support my mind and body. Wanting to eat food that nourishes me rather than satisfies a sweet tooth or quick craving. ALSO learning more about my period with cycle syncing and seed cycling has really been changing my period. I used to take medication for cramps and have not had to do that since utilizing raspberry tea, seed cycling, and listening to my body during the different phases of my cycle.
Alexis helped me see and verbalize the truths I already knew about myself. All of the protocols and handouts have been super helpful with this process as well. Alexis was so personable, kind, and relatable. I loved how I felt like she was just one of my girl friends. I felt empowered to do better because she believed I could do better. I knew I was enough at times because she knew I was enough. I definitely feel more self empowered. When I began this journey I felt lost and out of control. I now know what is good for my mind, body, and soul and am able to make those choices.

Before starting the awakening program I had some very unhealthy emotional attachments and eating habits when it came to food. Those had built up over a long time and I was not eating the right foods for my body. I live alone and was basically ordering takeouts multiple times per week and I rarely did any home cooking, somehow it seemed easier just to order food in. Since I am on a a spiritual journey of self discovery it felt right to also now align my body and start reevaluating the foods I was eating and look at ways of incorporating more nutrient rich foods into my daily diet. So I took the decision to invest in myself and start the 3 month awakening program.
Each session Alexis and I set realistic goals which worked for me, and new ideas and recipes to try that week to get more variety whilst nourishing my body. We also explored body movement and how to embrace and be more aligned with my true feminine essence. The protocols were super helpful to keep me on track and feel motivated to achieve my goals, I started meal prepping every Saturday and that helped me keep on track throughout the week, planning ahead and gradually introducing new foods over time. I also started to really enjoy the process of meal prepping and cooking myself tasty dinners which were much better for my body and mind. I even started making my own home made cashew milk with dates :)
Over the last 3 months I have gained so much awareness of how much I did not need the bad foods, and that I ate it to satisfy mental cravings. I have not been hungry throughout the program and my cravings for unhealthy food are gradually subsiding, I have not felt deprived and I have still been able to eat healthy snacks and treats. I have lost weight & increased energy but overall gained a strong understanding of myself and how I am in control of what I eat, and that nourishing my body with the right foods actually makes me feel so so good. I am proud of taking those steps for myself and following through with the commitment. This has enabled a solid foundation of understanding my body and what it needs to be truly fulfilled.
Thank you so much Alexis for all of your support and guidance throughout this journey. You have allowed me to become more in tune with my body and also the feminine goddess which lives within me and I am feeling confident in my ability to make the right choices moving forward :)

Most people say "don't do this" or "do that," whereas Alexis will say "do this, and here's an essay on WHY it matters" which makes all the difference and gives more motivation to follow through. She gave me such cool information about nutrition/wellness that helped me to make real changes in my life. I loved the meal plans and the elimination diet really helped me understand how often I get sugar + carby cravings. I definitely have a healthier relationship with food and working out and I no longer feel like a slave to my cravings. Before working with Alexis, I had a long history of chronic constipation and bloating. Though I had a “healthy” diet, I couldn’t seem to get regular bowel movements to be a thing! After 2 weeks on her meal plans, I saw a DRASTIC change in metabolism. It was EXACTLY what I needed to kickstart my journey to healing my gut. And I saw a huge change in my body confidence!
I feel like I've gained so much self-control through allowing myself a more fluid/less rigid regimen of diet/exercise. I started the program feeling like "if I don't meal prep, I will binge eat." I didn't trust my cravings or my body and I silenced my body's voice. Throughout the program, I learned how to listen, I learned how to trust what my body tells me, and I haven't had the urge to binge eat ever since (which is CRAZY because this is something I've struggled with for YEARS). I was very happy with her support. I felt safe to admit when I didn't follow protocol and I felt celebrated when I did! This is so different from in the past where if I didn't follow through on something, I would be shamed for it. So I felt very supported throughout the entire process. I would recommend this program to women who struggle with negative body image + binge-restrict cycles.

I met Alexis at a time when I needed a push in the right direction. I never could have known how influential she was going to be in guiding me through my own personal journey. I have so much energy and vitality since integrating the practices she has provided me. By changing my diet and perspective I have been able to align with my purpose and live with meaning. Her gentle nature mixed with her deep understanding and awareness of what others need, has truly catalyzed my transformation. She has taught me how to take better care of myself and empowered me to make decisions that will positively impact my health and thus, my life.

Just passing by to say thanks to Lexi! She has the gift, every time we do a session she completely changes my week. She just blows my mind at the first 10 min and I'm a very controlling person, it's very difficult for me to open up, but talking to her is easy. Her sweet and kind way of talking breaks all my barriers down and makes me feel so comfortable and loved. Even in one session she can go very deep and show you things about yourself that nobody has ever mentioned before. I love our sessions and how you light up my mind in the most sweetest way, I always leave our sessions with so much energy and hope (so much that I end up having trouble sleeping afterwards haha). I'm so glad that the universe has found a way to introduce us even though we live so far away from each other! Obrigada Amiga!

You are supportive, intelligent and responsive to my individual needs. More people need this in their lives Lexi! You skillfully identified some areas that I needed guidance in. My biggest insights were my addiction to coffee and my high fitness expectations that I fall short of. I took down my self-made crazy timetable and now understand I need to move my body each day in a way that I feel like doing while being compassionate towards myself. I seriously thought I was depressed after cutting coffee but now I feel great- no longer stressed & highly strung. I feel calm & grounded again and last time I saw the doctor my blood pressure was really healthy!"

I'm in the early stages in my journey of balanced health and mindfulness and Lexi has been an amazing guide. I was hesitant to commit to a program but I'm so glad I did. It's far more than healthy eating as I'd initially thought. Lexi listened and advised on behavioral changes I can make based on my current lifestyle to achieve more balance. Her knowledge, wisdom and passion are all very evident and I'm excited to continue this journey with Lexi.
